Neti pots are amazing, especially with a stuffed up nose. Omg it's live heaven after all the pain you have to endure when water and solution is running through your nose.

Yeah it's gross when something that appears larger than your entire sinus comes flushing out though.... relieving, but disgusting.

28- not trying to be a smartass here, but maggots only eat decaying flesh, so unless you're dead, maggots will not eat your brain.

94 is correct. We would --and still do, in fact-- use maggots in serious infection or burn cases. The maggots will clean the wound of decaying tissue, while leaving the living stuff in tact. Gross, but true!

This is a true question so would some one please tell me the answer with no smart ass comments calling me stupid? Are maggots the baby form of flies? I thought they were completely separate and that flies were larva then flies, not maggots. Or are there a certain species of fly that goes through the maggot stage where it eats the dead flesh?

38- look at docs previous post. He obviously knows which words to use, and where to use them. I suggest jumping off the thread before he comes back...

89- the queens English refers to, basically, most of them. It doesn't belong to Queen Elizabeth or Victoria. It's the English of the current queen.

88 has a compelling argument, though he didn't do a great job of carrying it out. If Doc was talking about a specific queen, he should've capitalised the 'q'... As Doc himself said. However, if he was talking about all queens in general, or a group of queens such as 'all queens of England', he should've put " queens' ".

Doc, it is the Queen's English. She owns it. She asks - why the hell you lot butchered words like aluminium, oregano and route.

Wouldn't it be queens' then? Showing possession in a generalized group? I never really liked writing English too much. They're too many rules for grammar and also many exceptions to those rules.

Ha my phone didn't load the rest of this conversation. Happy to know my assumption was correct ;)

56-They were written in about the same time. I doubt he refreshes his page every second to see if another person commented before posting his own.

29 - Really? It took you 5 full minutes to pronounce it? Yikes. I wonder how long it will take you to pronounce "pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis".

Reply

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis is a lung disease caused by silico dust! (calm down, no need to try and type it into google)

Reply

It's actually a word invented by a word puzzle writer for a competition. The actual medical term is "silicosis", which is not as sexy a word.
