I had my wisdom teeth out today. Its yet to be seen if it was a wise choice. Currently it hurts like bitch and it super gross. But who know what the future would have held. While reading up on the medicines I was prescribed WIKI had this to say:
Preventive removal of the third molars is a common practice in developed countries despite the lack of scientific data to support this practice. In 2006, the Cochrane Collaboration published a systematic review of randomized controlled trials in order to evaluate the effect of preventative removal of asymptomatic wisdom teeth. The authors found no evidence to either support or refute this practice. There was reliable evidence showing that preventative removal did not reduce or prevent late incisor crowding. The authors of the review suggested that the number of surgical procedures could be reduced by 60% or more.
Likewise, ClinicalEvidence published a summary, largely based on the Cochrane review, that concluded prophylactic extraction is “likely to be ineffective or harmful.” The website offered the following details:
|“||While it is clear that symptomatic impacted wisdom teeth should be surgically removed, it appears that extracting asymptomatic, disease-free wisdom teeth is not advisable due to the risk of damage to the inferior alveolar nerve.Some non-RCT evidence suggests that extraction of the asymptomatic tooth may be beneficial if caries are present in the adjacent second molar, or if periodontal pockets are present distal to the second molar.|

Do you remember being nine? I do. I was a certifiable bad ass within the context of my class room. We chased the kindergardeners around with whiffle ball bats, cursed when no one was looking, and even had a conspiracy to climb over the fence once at recess. One year during elementary school, I remembers the whole class plotted together to mess the room up during recess so the teacher would be mad when we came back in. We spilled a little glitter, maybe messed up some papers, and I remember we put Vick’s Vapor rub on her desk. I thought we were practically criminals. She yelled, we apologized. Apparently kids to day are in another league.
ATLANTA (Reuters) – Nine-year-olds at a school in the U.S. state of Georgia brought a broken steak knife, handcuffs and electrical tape to school in a plot to injure their teacher, authorities said on Tuesday.
Teachers at Center Elementary School in, uncovered the plot on Friday when a pupil reported that a child in the third grade had brought a weapon into the school.
“The plan was to handcuff the teacher, put tape over her mouth and hit her over the head with the paperweight and possibly cut her,” said Lt. Duane Caswell of Waycross police, adding that some students said the knife was simply there to cut the tape.
“It was a rather elaborate scheme for children of that age,” he said.
The students spent a week planning the attack and planned to carry it out on the day they were caught, Caswell said.
Nine pupils in the grade, most of whom were 9 years old, have been disciplined and some were given long-term suspensions, said Theresa Martin, spokeswoman for thedistrict in the southeastern part of the state. Caswell said police were also planning to charge three of the children in the juvenile court system with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and possession of a weapon on a school property.
This has to be the weirdest internet mash up ever. The L-word (a popular lesbian soap opera) and lol cats have been combined. I imagine there are very few people in the world who would get this. For me, I watch l word and love it, so I recognize half the joke. But I don’t see the humor in lol cats. I know a lot of people like lol cats, but will have no idea what l word is. So I dedicate this post to ultimate in the obscure. lol-word.
