    Man! I do NOT need this right now! My insurance is bailing from healthcare.gov, and I've not been able to log in to my account in forever, and now this. this... I've successfully overcome tribulation by toilet tank float valve, and trial by stripped wood screws in the stairway railing, and am up for the challenge of replacing a leaking kitchen sink shutoff valve, but no matter HOW cheap I am, I am NOT waiting for "this too shall pass" to put it back, even with boiling and soaking in alcohol...

    I hate 2016. This year sux. Phone has no dial tone, either...

    Obama really deserves a punch in the mouth for Obamacare. He really fucked insurance up for a lot of people, mostly the working poor. Don't know if you qualify as that, but just wanted to put it out there.
    I have a friend with dental issues due to bone density problems. It really looks like it sucks, tooth pain is supposed to be the worst. I almost obsessively brush and floss for 5min 2x a day just because of shit like that. Never had a cavity or a broken tooth, so far so good.

    Dental insurance has always sucked. Mine only ever paid half, but see the second parenthetical below . . .

    A LITTLE TIP FOR TOOTH CAPS: (That won't help Goofus because he swallows)(One of my best friends is a dentist)

    If a cap comes loose, especially a temporary one, a quick fix is to use a dab of good old petroleum jelly, a/k/a Vaseline, to stick it back on. It should last for about a day, but you can do this daily for a few days until you get in to the dentist.
    I wonder if a little dab in the whole would help, Goofus, at least to keep your breath-air outa there.

    Sigh. One look at the cost of a new cap, and I am... searching... for the old one. From what I've read, from 12 to 36 hours is the "transit time" for this apparently common occurrence. Beyond that, and I'm out of luck, so far, the raisins and walnuts tell me I'm still working on breakfast. I shall spare you any further details... This is NOT how I planned to spend the day. I can't seem to stop compulsively washing my hands....

    ...is the shit made out of diamonds or something? You'd really go digging through your shit to find a damn tooth cap, and then put it back in your mouth?

    Well if I'd spent 12-36 hours digging through my own shit to find it, I sure as fuck wouldn't just throw it away!

    Thousands of dollars for a new one, or retrieve the old one, and have the dentist fix it up and STERILIZE it, and I'm... panning for gold...

    Not so much the practice of dentistry, but the price of dentistry.

    They have to pay off that student debt somehow! ;) At this point, I'm just resigned to the fact that the ... toothish... is lost. I'm tired of pooping into 1 gallon plastic ziploc bags, and applying the flattening foot of finding for foreign fecal features in the flattened fecal film.

    @ wiskas: There are unscrupulous ones for sure. It's easy for them to say there's a cavity and who thinks about getting a second opinion for that? I also wonder about cleanings also being inspections, but luckily I get mine free. My buddy, one of the two "best" friends I've known since kindergarten, is super-active in his community, is one of the most likeable, beloved guys I've ever known. If he wanted to, he could get away with murder.
    There is another dentist an that town, who I only barely know, who got in trouble with prepubescent girls. He is not allowed to go within 100 feet of a public pool, but he still has his license. He's not allowed to be alone with patients, iirc. :confused:

    @ Goofus: Did you find anything interesting? A poop in the shape of the pope's face? :p

    All my poops are in the shape of the pope's face. I poop all the popes. Even Clement I :innocent: I am the Perpetual Papal Personage Pooper

    The only things I've found are the things I remember putting in there. Mostly walnut pieces and raisins, with the occasional tomato peel.
