Aspen Dental is a massive scam. Almost conned my Dad into paying way too much for an implant. Tossed on a ton of extra stuff in the quote and buried it. Luckily I caught it before he went through.

The dentist that my wife & teenage daughter used to go to was a scam. They had been going there for years and was happy. Then one day my wife told me the dentist said my daughter seemed to have too many cavities (prior 6 month visit to most recent) and recommended treatment that included veneers for close to $9K.

Obviously I choked at this and we got a second opinion from my dentist. He checked my daughter's cavities and said it wasn't that bad for such an significant treatment plan. She has been going to him for the past year and all looks well, my wife has also found a different dentist.

All trust was lost with the original dentist. Our best guess is they get a massive kick-back on the veneers. I told my wife to tell the dentist why she and my daughter are leaving but she didn't want to make a big deal out of it.

So my recommendation is always go for a second opinion if there is something significant going on.

I've been a console gamer for a lot of years now but I never saw a connection so bad that my update timer was counting up instead of down ... until tonight.

MW gonna MW I guess.

edit: it's a fun one too. You do an 18 gig update from the dashboard. Open the game, immediately hit with a second separate 16 gig update for multiplayer.

If you read this and are someone who prays, please pray for some friends of ours.

Mom has been battling brain cancer on and off for over 10 years. Has had a really rough battle the last 2 years. Her youngest of 4 children decided on Wednesday that she was too much of a burden and took her own life.

Sadness. No other words.

I never realize what a severe introvert I am until the girlfriend's parents are staying for 10 days and they have friends over, there's parties, events....

I'm outgoing, I love parties, any social event I'm there, but - I'm always able to go home. I haven't had a roommate since 2003 and all of the depression I used to struggle with then was gone as soon as I lived by myself. My girlfriend moved in a few years ago, and that was scary, but, she respects my space and we work opposite work shifts so we're both alone in the house a lot. It works.

But this week....I've never been so exhausted. It's survival. All my little tricks from my childhood and young adulthood aimed towards surviving being around people came back to me very easily...

I also feel I'm turning into my father. How he used to kind of disappear during family gatherings. Literally every second is an internal evaluation of how I'll be perceived ("can I leave for an hour, stretch it out further? What if I bring news of errands I've done? How about a nap? I'll tell them I'm coming off a illness, which is true.")

It does make me appreciate my girlfriend though. I'm lucky to have found someone I can live with - and travel across Europe for weeks at a time spending every second together. And who gets that some days I just want to be alone all day.

Last night I stayed up until 4AM in my office just to be alone. I was coming off a brutal work stretch and there was no break....

(It's also kind of nice that my girlfriend's sister's perfect boyfriend who her parents worshiped broke up with her, and the other sister is permanently single, SO, - it's all me. I'm #1! Their last and best chance to marry off a daughter! I have a house and a job! I can do what I want, damn it!)

Edit: Also, I don't understand people who feel compelled to feed the dog scraps at the house they're visiting. Don't do that. My dog was sick after jerk asses gave him too much turkey at Thanksgiving. I laid down the law this time. They all thought it was a big joke. So I kept him near me. They still "playfully" admit to sneaking him food when I'm not around. Fuck that. My dog is on a pre-kidney disease prescription food. I do everything I can with his diet to help him be with me as long as possible. When people compromise that, I get upset. I'm taking him for longer walks and shrinking his regular meal size to compensate (the long walks away have another purpose too, of course, more alone time).

I can only imagine the cancer battle but I've seen first hand how insidious depression is.

I am very sorry for your friend's family challenges.

I realize that I have a tiny pet peeve when people call sports accomplishments “records” when they are not really records. LeBron just passed Kobe for third place on the NBA all-time scoring list. And everyone keeps talking about LeBron having broken Kobe’s “record.”

He did not break a record. Third place on the list is not a record. It is an amazing accomplishment, and we should recognize it, and he should be very proud of it. But it is not a record.

I have the same problem when people manipulate numbers to say things like “he is the only quarterback to pass for over 250 yards, and rush for at least 75 yards, and have over two rushing touchdowns, and average over 10.2 yards per attempt.”

We all know with the real records are. And it annoys me when people take random other things, however impressive, and try and make them seem like records.

I am going through the painstaking process of migrating laptops to a new one, and going through my games list and systematically uninstalling them, and DAMN! even in the games that I had installed on my system, I have some really good games I haven't even touched. Looks like I have months of entertainment I need to put the TO DO list.

Made my way back to the town where I grew up today, for visitation at the funeral home. The dad of a friend from kindergarten (lifelong friend, but with a couple decades communication gap in the middle) passed after a couple of years of health issues, at the age of 81.

I stopped by my parent's house en route and as I was leaving my mother mentioned that my grandparents (i.e. her parents) knew and thought well of the father of the deceased.

I mentioned that to another old HS friend who was there and he pointed out that meant that our families had been connected in some way for over 100 years.

What drew me up a bit short about that was the realization that my son is unlikely to have a single person in his life outside of blood kin that he can say that about.

Maybe neither good nor bad, it was just something I'd never thought about quite that way before.

I have 19 first cousins, and most of them lived in the area in which I grew up. So it just felt normal to have lots and lots of extended family with deep roots kind of always around.

Then we moved. And it feels much more lonely and isolated here. My kids are growing up without the constant birthday parties and visits and millions of other things that I took for granted.

I feel a little sorry for the guy but not that sorry. He should die in prison IMO.

“I’m terminally ill,” Madoff told The Washington Post in an article Wednesday.

“There’s no cure for my type of disease. So, you know, I’ve served. I’ve served 11 years already, and, quite frankly, I’ve suffered through it,” Madoff told the newspaper.

But one of Madoff’s victims, Gregg Felsen, had no sympathy for the arch-scammer who decimated his savings.

“He’s terminally ill? I’m terminally broke,” Felsen told the Washington Post. “He ruined a lot of people’s lives and changed them forever.He deserves no leniency whatsoever.”
:
:
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which prosecuted Madoff, declined to comment on his request for early release.

So did the Madoff Trustee, who is responsible for recovering funds for victims of his scheme. To date, the Madoff Trustee has recovered more than $14.3 billion for Madoff customers, or more than 75 cents for every dollar of claims filed by victims of the scam.

Peter Chavkin, a lawyer for Madoff’s wife, Ruth Madoff, declined to comment.

The couple’s two sons, Mark and Andrew, both died during Madoff’s time in prison.

Mark killed himself in December 2010 on the second anniversary of his father’s arrest.

Andrew died in 2014 from cancer.

Less than 18 months? So he gets potentially a whole year of freedom? Nah. If it was like 6 months or something, then sure. But granting it would have been a giant middle finger to his victims. And I'm one of the most left-wing posters on this board re: the prison-industrial complex.

I'm about to ditch twitter like I did facebook.

Every other tweet on my feed is something political even though I only follow softball coaches and sports personalities.

Why does it show me BS tweets from people I don't follow, yet many of those I follow do?

If I want to see it, then I will follow them.

I'd happily sacrifice the 1/100 of those that turn out to be interesting to avoid that 99/100 that make my teeth grind, eyes roll, or worse.

I pulled a crown off a tooth at 10pm last night, thanks to something labeled "CREAMY CANDY" from the Korean grocer.

Hah, I did the same but with a Bit-of-Honey. I felt it was "off" before eating the candy so don't think it actually cause the problem.

My dentist told me there's literature that the new materials they use for crowns nowadays don't work as well with the old adhesive they have. They have not found or decided on a new optimal adhesive formula yet and he warned me my crown may pop off again.

So, I quit my job without having another one lined up. Staying until they can find a replacement because that's the right thing to do.

Yesterday was the first time in months I was cheerful and could breathe easily. Going to be interesting seeing what happens next.

I've been dreaming of doing this.

In maybe 5 years I'll have enough money to do it assuming the stock market doesn't crash.

My sister had to go in unexpectedly to work, and had to bring my 7 year old nephew. She works at a hotel, and when they got there she gave him her phone to play games on and told him to stay in the chair in the corner and not bother anyone.

She leaves him there and goes to her meeting. One of her friends texts "Hey, how is it going?". My nephew answers: "Bad. My mom stuck me in the god damned corner"

He spelled it all correctly.

Every other tweet on my feed is something political even though I only follow softball coaches and sports personalities.

Why does it show me BS tweets from people I don't follow, yet many of those I follow do?

If I want to see it, then I will follow them.


This does suck. Try adding muted words. Helps a lot.

You, sir, may have just become my favorite FOFCer.

Just got back from a bachelors party in Vegas...thanks to the craps table, it paid for my trip. Thanks to all the ridiculous cigarette smokers, I now have a stupid cough that is driving me crazy.

I love craps.

I was in Vegas in November. I always budget my money so that I can play every day. One night, I was down to $15 for the night. Saved it for when I was throwing. 45 minutes later I was sitting on $800.

The next morning I had an hour to burn. $100 become $400 in 8 rolls of the dice. I rolled 4 four times in a row to start. I decided I was done after 8 rolls, leaving ahead.

That night, lost $200 in about 15 minutes.

Came home up $1000 though. Most fun I've had in a casino.

That is awesome! It's crazy how fast it can turn around like that for you. I wasn't even going to play, but, my friend and one of his friends wanted to and I decided to play with $100 to start and walked away with an extra $500 by the time we were done, which ended paying for my hotel and flight.

On our last Vegas trip, I introduced my wife to the Shoot to Win "Bubble" Craps machine and she fell in love with the game. It was only a $2 minimum table, so we had a long, easy session to teach her the game. I don't think she'll ever stand at a real craps table. The $10-15 minimums on the Strip are too much for her (for me as well).
