To screw, or not to screw...

I have a stress fracture in the compression side of my femoral neck at my hip. My doctor has given me the options. I'm wondering if anyone happens to have experience (personal or otherwise) with this type of injury, and how did it go? [more inside]

Can anyone ID this phrase in a rap song? It's always puzzled me.

It's at 1:06 in this video of the Funkdoobiest song "Who Ra Ra." I believe the first part is "My mom said 'Boy you're a _________'" and I can't figure out what the phrase is. It's always driven me nuts, and I have never seen a complete set of lyrics for this song. The video is NSFW, just FYI.

what is this called and where can I buy one?

Our roommate Napoleon Bone-Apart is missing the little pin that keeps his femur attached to his hip. It looks exactly like this. What is the term for this type of pin, and where can I buy one (or two I guess, but not bulk quantities) so that we can restore Napoleon to his full glory?

Trying to make sense of my mom's post-hip replacement TIA

My mom had a full hip replacement on August 22nd. 12 days later, she had a TIA. The ER lab tests (MRI, CAT scan, and electrocardiogram) said there was no sign of a blockage. 2 days later, her primary care doctor said it was probably caused by a blood clot related to her surgery, and she shouldn't make any changes other than taking an aspirin, avoiding alcohol, and monitoring her blood pressure at home. Does this sound like a normal treatment plan for someone who had a TIA most likely caused by a hip surgery-related blood clot? [more inside]

Best physotherapists in Toronto?

My mother has lately undergone hip surgery and had her's replaced with an artificial one. She has regular OHIP and has no physiotherapy coverage. She will need a few sessions at her house until my sister, who will be looking after her full-time, learns the exercises and is able to do them herself. In addition to the doctor's recommendation, I am looking for the best physiotherapists in Toronto for this kind of thing. Someone who is professional, friendly, and isn't on the morbidly expensive side of things.

What kind of doctor do I need to see for my knee/hip pain?

I am 28 and female. Overweight, but no other health problems. I've had deep, aching knee and hip pain since around 2003. Most of the time since then, I have been un- or under-insured. I'd like to finally get this figured out and treated, but not sure what kind of specialist I should go to. My latest trip to a primary-care doctor was useless. [more inside]

What music do fashionistas love in July/August 2013?

I might need to produce some promotional video for an upcoming fashion festival and am a little in the dark as to the sort of music favoured by fashion-y people. I have a reasonable handle on what's trendy and/or trending among those who follow music (as opposed to clothes), but I'm hoping that some fashion-industry mefites could help me out with what sort of music might be playing in July 2013 during runway shows, or in the studios of designers as they work, or through the headphones of people working in the most in-demand casting agencies... I hope you get what I mean. [more inside]

Does hip-hop/rap equal rock/pop as a genre that requires true musical talent?

Help settle a contentious argument: friend argues that hip-hop/rap requires less talent than rock/pop, and that the true measure of talent is being able to stand on a stage with nothing but a guitar and microphone. This doesn't seem right to me, but I don't know hip-hop/rap well. Is this a valid position? Are there any musicians in rap and hip-hop that defy this? [more inside]

Ideas for fun or luxury gift delivery for best friend in NYC

I'm looking for suggestions for a gift to be delivered to my friend in New York City. I'm out of the loop: what neat thing do all the cool kids in NY want these days? For example, I think Kiehl's was all the rage a couple of years ago, and Philosophy body washes before that. She is 30, single, lives in Brooklyn, enjoys good food and drink, likes fun personal care products, is very busy at work, is very hip, elegant and quite intelligent. I know she reads things like DailyCandy and Flavorpill (I had a look there but nothing caught my eye). [more inside]
