Not really- I live in Ternopil- a city SW of Kyiv. I was in Kyiv after it got violent but stayed out of the center of town. Our city government (and probably 95% of the pop here) is composed of people who are in one of the opposition parties (well- they're not the opposition now in the new coalition government) so there never was much danger here as there was no dissent, to speak of. All rallies here (while huge) were peaceful. Right up until last Wed night when the police headquarters, prosecutor's office were torched and generally destroyed. Lots of damage done then but I stayed inside.
Roads are still controlled by the self defense league who protected the demonstrators for months- we came through a checkpoint last night in a bus. That was a bit unsettling (although the young man who got on our bus to look us over was very quiet and polite). They do this to help keep the traffic police in line and to try to snag any of the former government still in the country- there's a long list of 'wanteds'.
Guess the comment got long!

I don't think so- I read it more as it 'would be a great icebreaker video for a Hazmat class'.
The thing is- in Eastern Europe we see canisters of (who knows what) being hauled around, some buses and cars run on propane- or some such thing (I've seen buses with 5 or 6 pressure tanks strapped to them; when that kind of bus has to refuel en route, passengers have to get off and walk a distance away until the refueling is done); roads are often bad; drivers are maniacs- traffic lane demarcations mean very little, neither do speed limit restrictions. And nothing is maintained (vehicles, cylinders) like it should be. The amazing thing is that this doesn't happen more often.
The pairing of this song with the video was brilliant. But the whole thing gave me the shudders. Yikes.

I floss it out.
And- from a close friend who is a cancer survivor- apparently being a good flosser can help you if you ever face radiation. Something about overall dental care and radiation's negative affects on teeth. (Public service message for the day!) ;)

Some good ones here! ;)
How about that 'May the bird of paradise fly up your nose; may your wife be plagued with runs in her hose; may an elephant caress you with its toes.' Always sort of liked that song! ;)

That's just the most delicious thing yet today!
Like that question that went around Facebook recently: When you walk in the rain, do you get wet or do you feel the rain?

Well wow. Let's just whip up a batch.

A long time before meth became a household word, I thought my heart and body were exploding and found out it was from sudafed. That stuff, although effective as a decongestant, is downright scary to begin with. At least to some of us.

Has the internet only highlighted what was always there (People don't think) or is it worsening/has it created the problem? Honestly. This one should have been so easy... to not do.

Thank you for the nicely put sane answer.
Since when is everything medical suddenly evil? It's bizarre how far the other direction people seem to want to go.

I think that's because drummers really like to drum! ;)

I personally enjoyed this a lot more than that drum line that went around facebook a couple weeks ago. These guys are good AND they put a smile on my face!

That list seems pretty bogus, actually. What about all the ridiculous basketball, football and baseball salaries? What about the outrageous sums pulled in by quite a few CEO's. One could certainly argue that they earn a bigger salary than, say, a librarian (which, incidentally, is a far more admirable job, IM(ns)HO) but I cannot at all agree that they are NOT overpaid.

My niece had a meltdown because her tall fat glass was half full of milk while her sister's skinny short glass was completely full. There was no explaining to her that her own glass likely had more milk in it. The only answer was another short glass of equal size...into which we could not pour all of her milk...but she was happy.
sigh
