For all you divers out there, you should remember things like explosive decompression. If those sacs had some air inside them (faulty implants?) could easily do it.

I had a molar do something similar many years ago on a diving job of of Natuna in the S China sea. Down around 250' on a surface gas dive, on the way back up, I had a molar with a large filing courtesy of the military some 20 years earlier that apparently had gotten some air in the root beneath the filling. On the way back up I got an extremely painful ache in my jaw and then before reaching my first decom stop around 110' there was a audible "crrraaaccckkkk" (or in was in my head anyway) and said molar was in two pieces as the pressure build up eventually made something give. I guess the old molar was weaker that the amalgam filling, so split she did!

Only to 8000 feet. Higher pressures put too much stress on the hull. I think the 787 will provide 6000 ft cabin altitude which should make things better.

Actually just the opposite, it expanded as I was ascending so somehow it had equalized while on the lowest depth.

That or the kid thinks he's adopted and the parent haven't told him. Now the kid has a complex and the parent are to blame.


Reminds me of the guy who sued his 'ugly' wife...

"Hong Kong - A disgusted husband in northern China divorced his wife and sued her for deceit after discovering that she had had plastic surgery before they met, a news report said on Wednesday. Jian Feng became suspicious when the beautiful woman he married two years earlier gave birth to an ugly daughter last year, according to the Hong Kong edition of the China Daily. Jian, from Hegang province, demanded to know if she had been unfaithful to him and to prove her fidelity. His wife then showed him a photograph of herself taken before her cosmetic surgery. The woman had travelled to South Korea before they met and paid more than $100,000 for surgery to make her better looking, the newspaper said."

Sigh... all in vanity... :-|


Wow, just wow :-k

I wonder what he was suing for though. Was he out to get enough money out of her that he could buy himself another bride who hadn't had surgery? I understand he was pissed off but what is he going to achieve by suing???

Poor kid with parents like that[/quote

Isn't it common practice in Korea that the wife is never seen, by her husband, without make-up on? They get up first and go to bed last.

That's like having beer goggles on 24/7.....

they have permanent eye liner and eyebrow and lip stick done, so even with all the non-permanent make up removed, they look okay.

i heard it hurts, but i have no idea. i guess i should! i mean, the idea of tattooing eyelids every 3 years seems ridiculous... to me at least!

plastic surgery is very acceptable in south korea, but that doesn't mean they don't have botch jobs! plastic surgeons are well paid because most of the other doctors there are reimbursed by the government (HMO) for non-elective consultations/surgery and if you aren't a specialist then no one will visit you for even a common cold.

that is a country where the prescription for your glasses are not done by a licensed optician but by a board certified eye specialist whom you pay $7 whatever the reason you visit him for...

Strange practice but the guys get a good deal. I mean, they always wake up to something looking half decent!!
