Real News. Real Funny.
HailRobonia: A man goes to the doctor for a prostate exam, but is worried that it will hurt. The doctor says "want me to numb it up for you?" and the man says "yes, please."Then the doctor sticks his face in the man's butt and goes "num num num"
OOF: Is it safe?
Rihlsul: You know what's fun? Discovering you're immune to local at the beginning of a vasectomy./Uh, no we're not going to continue, thank you very much.//Knock me the fark out.///Didn't want to be awake for it anyway////super glad I live where this covered by socialist health care.
Silverstaff: For ~25 years I thought dental anaesthetics had no effect on me.As a kid, back around 1991 I had to have a filling in one tooth. The anaesthetic numbed my mouth and I was talking funny. . .but I felt EVERYTHING when the dentist drilled me. He wouldn't believe that I could feel everything and was shouting at me to stop screaming. It was very, VERY unpleasant and rather mentally scarring to be forcibly held down by the hygenist while the dentist drills, feeling everything the whole way.It left me with a life-long fear of dentists and dental work.I finally went to a dentist last month. The only other dental work I'd had in my whole life was having my wisdom teeth cut out (because the Army required it), and they knocked me out for that one. I looked up a dentist that would do sedation dentistry, since I thought I was apparently immune to novocaine and would need to be knocked out to do anything to me.They did a little test. Nope, not immune. They were able to do all the dental work I really, really needed with just a local, and I feel a helluva lot better afterwards. It turns out that small-town dentist was just really incompetent and didn't numb the right part of my mouth, and refused to try again or believe me when I was basically telling him he missed with the first injection.
MythDragon: My dentist is not the least bit stingy with the gas. Getting a single filling? Gas me. I rather dislike dental work, but the gas at least makes it bearable.
