  • What to say to a person when they give you their "life advice"?

    To you, it is clear that the advice given is not applicable to your situation. However, this person REALLY wants you to take this advice and doesn't see why you wouldn't. You can't explain it to them for one reason or another. How do you handle them appropriately?

  • Very painful tooth two weeks after filling. Can it go away on its own?

    I received a deep filling a couple weeks ago and the nerve was exposed during the procedure. Since then, that tooth has been very sensitive with little improvement. Then a few nights ago I was about to go to sleep and...BAM! Extreme pain all the way up the side of my face to my head, it came in waves. Not pleasant to say the least.

    Now I'm pretty sure this means I'm going to need a root canal. In which case, I'll pay whatever it takes to make this pain stop.

    But out of curiosity, is there any chance of this pain going away on its own? The nerve can't be dead, or it wouldn't hurt so damn bad, right? Is it possible for it to still heal?

    I'm still getting the root canal done, and I'll ask my dentist this question as well. I'm just trying to understand what is happening.

  • NYS Trooper pulled over my sister for no reason- is this legal (READ DETAILS)?

    On the expressway a NYS Trooper pulled over my 20yo sister recently. She asked him what she did wrong, he said "nothing, I'm just patrolling". He proceeds to ask her for license and registration, then walks back to his car. Now get this, he then uses his megaphone and instructs her to get out of her car and walk back to him (against oncoming traffic mind you). He tells her to have a seat in the passenger side of his vehicle and proceeds to question her about whether she works, goes to school. My sister continues to comply and finally he says she can go.

    She made a mental note of his name on his uniform and we would like to report him. I'm just curious if anyone knows where the law stands in this case. Thanks for your help.

  • Front wheel squeaks while turning and sometimes braking?

    Front, driver-side on my little chevy aveo hatchback. The harder the turn, the louder the squeak. The higher RPMs, the louder the squeak. This just occurred out of the blue today.

    My wheel bearings and brake pads both replaced 3 months ago. Hmmm... What could it be?

  • Conventional Oil may damage your engine?

    I took my Chevy Aveo to Valvoline for a simple oil change. The guy said that Chevy recommends a sythetic-based oil. I said "no that's okay, I just want conventional." He said "are you sure?? Conventional oil may cause damage to your engine." Is this actually true? Assuming I get my oil changed on schedule, is it possible for it to damage my engine?

  • Low self-esteem leading to homosexuality / experimentation?

    I know two different women (one of whom I dated) who have been dating guys, in love with guys, etc...then after a few failed relationships all of a sudden decided to date girls. The one girl that I dated even told me she would never be with a girl (she even made a face of disgust).

    Both of these situations seem a bit odd, and the only similarity between the two is that they both have very low self-esteem.

    I'm just curious if these girls were ALWAYS gay/bisexual and never realized it...OR...is there a possibility that their unhealthy state of mind led them to make a radical change.

    Up until now, I have always assumed that homosexuality and bisexuality was completely genetic. Now I have been pondering the possibility that perhaps some people become bisexual due to periods of high stress or other mental problems.

  • Rechargeable batteries for electric shaver/trimmer failing?

    I bought a shaver that came with two rechargeable battery packs (2 x AA 900mAh 1.2V)

    Both packs powered the shaver fully for awhile until the energy was drained. However, the adapter (AC: 200V~50Hz DC: 3V 500mA) it came with does not charge either battery pack. When I plug the adapter to the battery pack, the red light comes on, so I know contact is being made, but no matter how long I leave it there, either battery pack does not charge.

    I'm not electrically skilled, so I was hoping someone on here could help me out.

  • Tested positive for Hepatitis C, could this be a false-positive?

    I'm a 22-year old healthy male. I am as straight-edge as it gets when it comes to my health. No drugs, alcohol, smoking. I practice safe sex with one partner. I don't donate blood or use needles of any kind. No tattoos or piercings. I am very careful about such things, therefore I should be a very low risk of contracting such diseases. Regardless, I have tested positive for Hepatitis C and I just can't believe it is possible that I got this. Just wondering if it is possible to be tested falsely positive for HCV and how this works?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Can you suppress positive thoughts?

    So burying away negative thoughts is bad for us because it builds up and has to be released.

    So my question is, what about positive thoughts that make us feel good? If let's say we feel happy but we keep it contained in ourselves, is that a good thing?

    I wonder this because I've dealt with anxiety and depression for years and it's an ongoing battle. I find that if I suppress the times when I feel good, they build up and my mood is happy for a longer period of time. When I have a good experience that boosts my confidence and I go around and share the story with everyone, the positive feeling doesn't last much longer. So my theory is that you can suppress positive thoughts and it will be, in fact, beneficial.

    Thoughts?
