Government absurdity explained to an alien - Animation

Postby Scepcop » 12 Apr 2012, 19:10

This is so hilarious and true, but sad. lol

Description:
An inquisitive alien visits the planet to check on our progress as a species, and gets into a conversation with the first person he meets. The alien discovers that we live under the rule of a thing called "government", and wants to understand more about what "government" is, what it does, and why it exists.

“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” - Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

The tooth is weird. A friend had told me she would pray to Apollo for me, then told me Apollo wasn't well and wanted to be left alone (Sunspots?) Later, she said, he was feeling better and would accept prayers.

So I made a clear thought of of my body being whole and in harmony with the humors, and asked Apollo to help me achieve that. I was raised by a Christian Scientist, and I use the techniques, and do not think of medicine as quickly as most people would. I was out of meds, but my roomie had just gotten me more Aleve. I took four of them, ate several brownies,and a tube of orajel. The next day, the abcess was largely healed and I felt great. Tooth still needs to go tho.

Should I attribute the change to the Aleve reducing the swelling, or to Apollo, or some other cause?

Abscessed teeth can come and go. If the swelling 'pops' then you get a reprieve or if your body fights the infection it may subside but once again, it's only temporary.

Here's a better warning: If the root of the tooth dies as a result of infection, the toothache may stop. However, this doesn't mean the infection has healed; the infection remains active and continues to spread and destroy tissue. Therefore, if you experience any of the above listed symptoms, it is important to see a dentist even if the pain subsides.

Bad teeth can cause some pretty unusual problems, so go get that bad boy fixed already.

Now as to taking 4 Aleve at the same time: Exceeding the maximum dosage recommendation carries with it significant risk of dangerous and debilitating side effects.
