Turns out, the circular saw was the least of my problems ...

Crème de glace. Um, crème de GLASS. Tell me I'll be alright?

Will I be okay? I ate broken glass tonight. Finely-crushed small particles. Not on purpose -- I'm not a circus geek. Broken glass is one of a very few things that freak me out. Will I be okay? Sure, probably, but I'm freaked out. [more inside]

Is my frostbite/frostnip healing as expected, or should I get treatment?

I have stupidly given myself a case of frostbite or frostnip by leaving a coldpack on a small area of bare skin for several hours. The worst appears to have reversed, but I really don't like the big welt that has appeared. What should I do next? [more inside]

worn-out phrases and longing gazes won't get you where you want to go, no...

I sent a mushy, gushy, soul-ripping, erotically explicit love letter via overseas Express Mail--to a slightly wrong address. "Attempted Delivery Notice": should I hope it comes back and edit it, or should I plunge ahead and make sure it gets there? [more inside]

Where's the thing I left on top of my car

I left something (breadbox-sized) on top of the trunk of my car and forgot about it when driving to work. Now it's gone. Is there any way to tell where it was most likely to fall off based on sharpness of turns, highway speed, hills, etc.? We searched within half a mile of the house with no luck.

Looking for virtual tour company.

I am trying to locate a company to do virtual walkthroughs (QTVR) of a dozen or so apartment complexes. I came across a really great looking company (except their SEO) that had done tours all around the world. They had huge scrolling lists (text box) of past work. I emailed them through a web form and have not heard back. I need to try and contact them some other way. But guess what? I can not find the site again. Please post any great virtual tour company web sites that you know of. Hopefully it will be one of them. Thank you. [more inside]

Should a new crown hurt this much?

My girlfriend's crown came off one of her molars, and it was damaged. She went to a dentist who reshaped the stump, made a new crown and replaced it. Since then (3 weeks) it came off once, she's been in excruciating pain the whole time, and now the dentist says she might need a root canal. Is this bad dentistry, or to be expected, and is there any recourse? [more inside]
