I worry alot and it shows...

I'm thinking of getting an endoscopic brow lift and I'd like to hear from anyone who's had one. Specifically - what was your experience like? Were you happy with the results? Would you do it again? Was the cost vs results ratio worth it?.

I can eat all the melted plastic I want and STILL look great

So I was dumping some defrosted chicken from one of those clear plastic bags into a pan, and accidentally melted a bit from the end of the bag. I'm assuming I'll be fine, but I was wondering, what exactly happens when you eat melted plastic? If nothing happens if you eat a little, what about a LOT? Hormonal problems, cellular mutation, clots in your digestive tract, or what? Or is the answer still nothing?

YuckHabitFilter/NeedMoreToWorryAboutFilter: Say you tend to chew on plastic pens while working, despite efforts to stop. Aside from the obvious Googleable dental detriments (tooth wear) and, um, choking risk I guess, are there any other dangers, esp. ones not grounded in Freudian analysis? Are you ingesting scary levels of leeching plasticizers and resins? If so, can you litigate? Kidding...
