    Thanks KLD and Mona -- CC is so educational, and sometimes (like) this, in ways you'd never expect.

    I feel sorry for any kid who had/has to deal with boils. They can be pain-ful!, and can take so long to heal. Neither the HipHubby nor I ever had them before moving to the tropics, and Bam! within a year, both of us had one. I was lucky -- the one I had developed in the armpit with no feeling. The HH -- not so much.
    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.

    Yes it is!
    Not sure why it's so interesting. I guess it's hard to believe.

    I have had tonsil stones before. The frustrating thing was the foul smell that was coming from my mouth- I could not even kiss my girlfriend with her pulling back. Ways exist to pull out these nasty little yellow nuggets but this is not a permanent solution to the problem I guess!

    could've gone a lifetime without thinking about these things again. Yet they are strangely addictive to watch being removed (on youtube, not in person).. So glad I don't have these little buggers. these and zit popping are very entertaining to me.

    found this guy last night - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkcBZVcelEQ
    lmao after 1:20
