There's no doubt she is Jay Z's daughter. Beyond that, is it really our business where someone's kids came from, as long as they are raising them with love and concern? I have an adopted daughter, she's my daughter, people often have to confirm we are together at the register when I'm clearly ringing up 5 year old girl clothes. As parents ourselves, we need to be better than questioning the paths other people take to be parents. If we are truly good parents, we are better than that. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I was watching a documentary on dog-fighting, and it showed the breeders carrying some sort of mid-length club with an end that kind of looks like the foot of a square column (slightly bigger than the rest of the club). That's the tool they use to keep the dogs under control. Unruly dogs are either struck with the "discipline stick" or - in extreme cases - the handler shoves the stick down the dog's throat, which causes the dog to choke and drop to the floor immediately. It's a nonlethal control technique. And I was thinking, there are some stray/pitbull-style dogs in our neighborhood... is it possible to buy one of these "discipline sticks" at a pet store, or are they special-order? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Hillary is currently polling a full 6% over Trump right now. Any DNC bump is over by now and everything is going strictly on campaign strength. It's essentially a baseline right now that Trump has the burden of correcting in his favor. Trump has lost every demographic with the exception of white males without college degrees, and is 8 points or more behind in swing states like PA and VA, which tend to mirror the national average. He'll never win VA this cycle. He's lost CO. The presidency is lost to the republicans and they all know it. [ Reply | More ]

np: WOW. we used to do a house in the Outer Banks with a bunch of families and it came out to $1K/week per room (or maybe a bit more w cleaning, etc). famileis toook turns cooking one night each - grilling mostly. and we had a whole fridge of booze from the drive thru liquir store. the whole week cost us maybe $2K - we only had one toddler so he shared our room.

[ - ] Any dentists on? I'm being charged $550 for nitrous oxide for an hour and a half procedure next week (root canal.) If I tell them I want nitrous with half the strength of the usual nitrous, would they charge me half the price maybe? I'm not sure if it's the actual gas that costs so much or the machine that it comes out of. As far as I know nitrous oxide isn't under patent, so why is it so expensive? Isn't it oven to women in labor for like $20? ("Gas and air" as they call it in Europe.) 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My friend had nitrous oxide during her birth recently. She said she was charged $100. But insurance coverage for childbirth may be different than your coverage for dental procedures. [ Reply | More ]

You can't dispute the charge, so just go get the root canal without nitrous. Should be a breeze. [ Reply | More ]

op: I'm thinking maybe I can just do half of the usual nitrous oxide if that's an option, but maybe they wouldn't do that. Worth asking them I guess if t saves me $275. Their office just closed, but I'll call tomorrow as at least ask. Was wondering if anyone here knew if that was even a possibility. [ Reply | More ]

No, they will not do that. They will just refuse to treat you. [ Reply | More ]

They don't call it gas and air in the US. They call it Nitrox. 50% oxygen, 50% nitrous oxide. It's cheap but it's also different than what you get at the dentist. At the dentist you get 70% nitrous oxide, 30% oxygen. [ Reply | More ]

And air is normally 20.95% oxygen. [ Reply | More ]

I love the reasoning behind all of this. Why don't you just ask them for a Vicodin? [ Reply | More ]

op: I'm not sure why they use nitrous and not vicodin. That's a good question. I'll ask that when I go in next week. And I think they give Vicodin after the procedure but I'm not sure. [ Reply | More ]

... you can't do that. Are you the crazy waxing lady? They don't just pass you a vicodin in the office. [ Reply | More ]

Vicodin can make you physically ill and likely to vomit. Not a good idea to be on that while a dentist is in your mouth [ Reply | More ]

Poster above you. I'm supposed to go in to get one next week and freaked out after reading this post. My dentist didn't tell me anything about gas. [ Reply | More ]

op: it seems like just another way for them to make money. There's no way nitrous oxide costs that much for them to purchase from the manufacturer. I think at most my use of the nitrous machine would cost them like $10 [ Reply | More ]
