That's about all I know as well.

Brunette can be used to refer to those with black hair as well.

You can, but almost everyone will misunderstand you

I did. But it was only my hand and it was rubbing alcohol.

I used gasoline... Also just my hand.

Jeebus, you guys are nuts.

How much do you recall losing your baby teeth? I'm thinking back on it, and I can vividly remember the physical part of the gradual wiggling plus that odd slight pain. Also, using your tongue to wiggle your tooth back and forth is the best thing ever. Can't remember much else, though.

I recall pretty much all of it. Then again, I also recall not being able to walk or talk.

Rubbing alcohol burns fairly cool, and in lower concentrations (70%) the water content helps protect whatever is "burning".

The only one I vividly remember is the one where I was chewing on something and one of my baby teeth came out a little bit early. Though I also remember the wigging bit freaking me out with the other teeth.

I recall the one that got stuck in the cookie and accidentally swallowed.

And I recall the wisdom teeth, though those aren't technically baby teeth, and
(spoiler, because euuuugh. Don't say I didn't warn you.)

Spoiler:

two of them were impacted and had to be cracked in half before they could be removed, and there's nothing quite like somebody taking a chisel to your jaw, except knowing that they had to do it again.

Doesn't matter. There's like not a single woman in existence these days with mono-colored hair.

I must inform all my female relatives that we are now all outside the accepted Western definition of womanhood.

Meh. My original post wasn't altogether warranted. I just had a bad day. My apologies.

I actually recall trying the old "tie one end of a string to you tooth and the other to a door" trick. I don't recommend it. Just let the damn thing come out on its own.

Same. I remember the feeling of moving a loose tooth around in the gum. But then that also happens in dreams where I'm losing my teeth, so I don't know if the dream sensation is itself an accurate recollection, or if I'm just remembering a made-up memory from a dream.

Does anyone just buy a new printer, rather than replace low ink?

Just spent $60 on new ink for our HP 5510. Black now won't print, tried two new cartridges and every trick the Internet had to offer but no luck. On top of that, the three brand new colour cartridges are apparently running low after printing no more than a dozen test pages—pretty far off the mark of their 250-300 page yield.

Now Future Shop/Best Buy have a Canon MG3520 on sale for $40. Print, scan, wireless, AirPrint, everything our HP does—and more. I mean print black.

It's a stupid thing to have to do, but it really does look like the better value. Anyone else do it seriously?

Yes, I went through this stupid cycle a few times and then said screw it and bought a Brother B&W laser printer and never looked back. It has been four years and I haven't missed a color inkjet. We have a little photo printer we got free with a laptop purchase that my wife drags out every six months or so to print a few photos.

Being in the industry, I can honestly say you should avoid ink printers unless you use them all the time. Conversely, laser printers use toner, which expires, but your overall cost per copy is going to be significantly lower, but again, if you are not printing regularly and using up the toner within about a year, you may have issues. If you are going to use a laser printer, remember to buy toners that will not expire before you use up the toner, regardless of how much cheaper per copy the high yield toner cartridges are.

With regards to yield, many people have the mistaken impression that the number of copies printed is for full pages. Most page ratings refer to only 5% page coverage, which means you will likely get far less than the displayed rating if you are printing full color, full page images.

I was going to start asking questions about what "all the time" can mean, inkjet versus toner, and read that Wiki article etc but aw f*ck it I'll just buy a new printer. And when that printer runs out of ink, I'll buy another new printer. We print a lot during the school year, but not much during summer. I don't if we print enough during the school year. But for $40 it's not worth it to try to figure out the scam that is home printing.

Don't worry, Kwame, we take our old electronics to the appropriate recycling depot.

The ink cartridges that are included with the printer are for very few copies, depending on the printer, FYI. They have it all priced out to where you are not saving money really, but you are likely to save some hassle.

There are also businesses that will refill your empty cartridge. I've never tried them myself.
