A trick with using asprin for tooth ache is crushing the asprin first with a spoon then swishing it in the mouth until numb then rinse and down with water
Has the odd effect yet allows the medicine to numb the area, unknown if it provides help in your situation, is a possible
A happy holiday toward you and others you know! With ever thanks toward your thoughts ~Hânh
|Dec-24-11|| ||achieve: <Thanh Phan> Thanks very much for your kind words and I am equally if not more ;) appreciative of your kind and helpful words and thoughts, really, a "fav favorite" ;)|
Best wishes to you and yours for 2012!
Oh - and the pain has subsided considerably, so no more pain medication for the near future it seems, but your tip is well heard, "crushing the asprin first, then in the mouth and SWISH it around" - good tip from way back, if I remember correctly.

Luke 22:28-30; Psalm 110; Revelation 4:4 -- what is represented by these 24 elders seated upon thrones wearing golden crowns...
|Aug-13-12|| ||brankat: Hi Niels!
I'm glad to see You back in the forum "business". Your place has been missed!
|Aug-14-12|| ||achieve: Thanks, Branko, and I see that the sabattical lasted for 8 months... But all credit and thanks go to <moro>, a very kind man. :)|
|Aug-14-12|| ||brankat: Hi Niels!
Here is a little Tuesday evening treat for You. Beautiful photos from just completed "CEG vs Legends" tourney in Geneva, taken by a Dutch chess photographer Frits Agterdenbos (correct spelling?)
|Aug-14-12|| ||Bureaucrat: You opened your forum again! Good!|
|Aug-14-12|| ||brankat: Niels.
In case You have not yet heard the very sad news: Svetozar Gligoric passed away yesterday :-(
|Aug-14-12|| ||achieve: <Brankat> Those pictures are priceless, what beauty against the back drop of Lake Geneva. Classical and timeless beauty; great pictures.|
The passing of Svetozar Gligoric is indeed sad news, but that is life. I hadn't read much of him until a few weeks ago when I read My Misha by Genna Sosonko, and he mentioned Gligy's affectionate relationship with Tal.
<Buro> Thanks for dropping by; always appreciated.
|Aug-15-12|| ||perfidious: From the CEG-Legends event:
Richard Gerber has changed a lot since we met in Geneva in 1977-I'm sure he'd say the same of me! We were both skinny kids back then.

If one cannot find contentment within oneself, it is useless to look for it elsewhere.
|Aug-15-12|| ||achieve: Source, please?
Yes, it starts at the base, from the centre.
<Perfidious> I remember going through a photo set of that tournament, and forgot why, but what struck me was Kortchnoi in his wheelchair, looking like he's 104... He'll probably breath his last breath over a chessboard.
|Aug-15-12|| ||moronovich: Good morning <achieve> !|
And congrats on your new/reopened forum !
I am shure it will gather a lot of fruitfull traffic...
I am busy today(chess with my son,plus big town, you know;)so talk to you later on,but take care in the meanwhile.
Hoka Hey !

This particular one comes from one of the old Chinese thinkers (philosophers). I can't remember which one. It has been around for some 3-4 thousands of years, so it is also sometimes listed as a Chines "proverb".
There are a few other, very similarly expressed thoughts from various cultures and historical periods. Based on observation since time immemorial and conceived independently. For a simple reason: the statement tells the Truth.
|Aug-15-12|| ||achieve: Irrefutable.
I am fond of Chinese proverbs, and those of indigenous peoples.
|Aug-15-12|| ||perfidious: <achieve> True; Korchnoi seems to have aged twenty years in one go, and it's hard to envision that robust character in a wheelchair at any age. You're right-he'll probably die in the saddle, as we say here in the States.|
|Aug-15-12|| ||brankat: <perfidious> As General McArthur once remarked: "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away." Or something like that.|

Top Ten Reasons To Vote in American Presidential Elections:
(applicable to other "Democracies" as well.)
10. You can pretend to help decide which CIA-groomed figurehead will front for the banksters during the next four years.
9. If the rigged voting machines break down, your vote might actually be counted.
8. With a bumpersticker like “Don’t blame me, I voted for Cynthia McKinney” (or your favorite 3rd party candidate) you’ll feel superior to the sheeple for the next four years.
7. Poking little holes in computer cards is good exercise for the muscles in your hands and wrists – and since you only do it every four years, you won’t get repetitive motion syndrome.
6. Voting offers an opportunity to do your civic duty: While standing in line waiting to vote, you can hand out 9/11 truth DVDs and explain to the sheeple that if voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.
5. If each of the two major party candidates gets exactly fifty million votes not counting yours, your vote will determine which candidate can brag about getting the most votes. Unfortunately, due to the mysteries of the electoral college system, getting the most votes has nothing to do with being elected President.
4. You’ll get to play a minor role in an outrageous, over-the-top farce, without having to get yourself hired as an extra in a Mel Brooks movie.
3. Since your vote has no effect whatsoever on the actual governance of the nation, you can go ahead and vote without feeling guilty about the mass murders and genocide that the government is guaranteed to keep right on perpetrating, regardless of the electoral outcome.
2. You can cast a write-in vote for a relatively honest president of some relatively honest country, like Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and hope that your local newspaper will mention it along with the write-in votes for Donald Duck, Ted Nugent, Ted Kaczynski, OJ Simpson, and Mishka the Talking Dog.
1. Casting a meaningless vote in a system rigged to victimize people like you is better than masturbation: It allows you to screw yourself, without requiring you to assume an anatomically impossible position and risk serious injury.
|Aug-16-12|| ||N0B0DY: If you think that <NOBODY> should run your life, vote for <NOBODY>!|
|Aug-17-12|| ||achieve: Quote of Today:
"No man of woman born, coward or brave, can shun his destiny."
|Aug-18-12|| ||brankat: Better <NOBODY> than Homeros :-)|
|Aug-19-12|| ||brankat: Quote of the Day, Aug-19-2012. (<Dakkie>'s Birthday :-))|
"To share often and much; to leave the world a little better; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. That is to have succeeded."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson.
|Aug-20-12|| ||achieve: The world is full of good quotes, Branko, but on a barely related note, I'm closing the forum.|
