Good luck or bad?

I had surgery on Friday to remove a kidney stone (1 inch in diameter). All did not go well, but the stone is out and I am still kicking. Was it good luck or bad?

But I didn't get the stone on Friday the 13th. I had it removed on Friday. The operation did not go smoothly so it was bad luck. But the operation did work so it was good luck. I think superstition requires a selective memory.

Geniophobia? Fear of chins? I don't see the threat at all.

Btw, in case anyone missed this, left turns in the U.S. are more dangerous than right turns
What the hell are you doing driving around on a toilet anyhow?

You can always flush a couple of kilos of sodium and exit via the roof. :biggrin:

Where can I get sodium? Does it grow under the rim of the toilet, or maybe around the shower drain?

Four sounds like the word death in Chinese. And another unlucky number in China is 9413 which sounds like a chinese proverb which means 'slim chance of survival' or 'nine die one lives'. That's what google tells me.

"Attention-grabbing" and "threatening" are very different things.

Interesting side note: I went to private high school with one of the remnants of the Spanish Hapsburgs. The famous Hapsburg chin was still in evidence. (Course the guy was half crazy fom all the inbreeding.)

..."This event registered a 9 on the K-Index, which measures the maximum deviation of the Earth's magnetic field in a given three-hour period," said Gayle Nelson, lead operations specialist at NOAA Space Environment Center. "The scale ranges from 0 to 9, with 9 being the highest. This was a significant event."

...This event was forecast by NOAA as the result of a solar flare that occurred on Friday, May 13...

If your bath salts have real salt in them, just separate it form the chlorine.

Are you sure that was a solar flare? Maybe somebody lit a match too close to those New Zealand sheep.
