I finally got to see Aladdin. I thought it was really well done, but I slightly prefer the animated movie. I'd definitely watch it again.

And I watched it just in time to make room for The Lion King. 🤩

I don't know what's worse, my wisdom teeth being pulled out tomorrow or my friend who is a girl still hasn't caught a Lucario in Pokemon GO after she said she was going to name her Lucario after me...

Aren't LUCARIO's paws adorable? (MOAR adorable than all of the Eevee'z)

@RedderRugfish Still the best I’ve seen is the sister being convinced by her brothers that they’re in the midst of a zombie outbreak.

I must’ve used my arm the wrong way when I was as changing the belt and blades on the mower today, because my neck is killing me from tightened shoulder muscles. In retrospect, tipping the riding mower to one side and holding it there to drain oil faster probably did it. Ugh

When I got mine removed, the dentist only applied local anesthesia. No funny hallucinations for me.

On the brighter side, I also skipped the severe pain and balloon head phase, since it didn’t require any cutting or stitching.

I hope yours goes well!

@Tyranexx Lasik huh, how is that working out for you? I'd love to try it but I'm out of freebie organs, so glasses forever it is.

I see a certain post in a certain news comments thread was removed. GG, mods, GG.

@RedderRugfish If it continues to drop consistently the world might actually fix itself eventually, however those numbers you offer are suspect. It's no secret the industrial world has declined in birth rate, but the "developing" world has been breeting rapidly enough to double it's population every decade. I hadn't heard that magically slowed, but if it has that's only good news.

As for the industrial world, "crisis" due to population decline in overpopulated but prosperous countries is purely the result of Keynesian/Socialist Ponzi schemes cooked up in the mid 20th century that require an ever increasing number of workers to pay for each generation of elders, not because population decline in and of itself would be bad. They broke a realistic economic model with one that depends on unsustainable growing numbers forever and ever and then declare it a crisis when the obvious problem you could see coming from a thousand miles away actually happens. It's a "problem" but it's a problem manufactured by political morons that have been dead for a quarter century.

@Ryu_Niiyama Speaking of squeamishness about eyes, not all the money in the world could even get me to try contacts....let alone Lasik....

@NEStalgia Contacts creep me out...despite technically using one that is bigger than a quarter. However I'm slightly desperate to preserve my vision so Lasik sounds nice, but I'd be the one they mess up and then I gotta get a stick and a dog. ...I wonder if you can train a rabbit to be a seeing eye pet. Granted they are too quiet for the job...

@Ryu_Niiyama That's funny, and surprising you'd be creeped out by contacts considering you pop the whole eye in and out like it's nothing and use it as a projectile!

But yeah, I hear you. If Murphy's law were to be used as jurisprudence in a court decision, I would be the cited precedent in the ruling. Apparently you may be a secondary precedent to reference...

A seeing eye bunny is still better than a seeing eye cat.

@NEStalgia True but given that the way these things are made is they inject PLASTER into you head... and you have to look as straight as possible for like 2 hours while it sets (and while I have an allergic reaction) you get over the "it's in my head" squick quick (the process has since improved but still, plaster). But contacts...shudder That is why Hylia made so many stylish and wonderful frames. I'm not going to fight with my blink reflex for 20 mins to look cute.

Also, f cats.

@Ryu_Niiyama Pretty good overall so far. I'm recovering fine; Lasik has a relatively short recovery time in terms of eye healing. My vision is still fluctuating a little and will for a month or two yet (at least), but it's a short-term side effect. It'll take my vision longer than some to stabilize since my prescription was higher. I was roughly at a -6 in each eye (rounded), which is borderline severe myopia. I'm dealing with some dry eye, but that's another short-term issue that isn't helped much by my job or hobbies.

Unaided, I can see much better than I've been able to in years. It's so nice to not have to mess with smeary, limited glasses and mess with contact solution. I was used to contacts and liked them overall, but it does take some getting used to when you're repeatedly touching your own eye.

I Lol'd at the seeing eye bunny concept. While I love cats, they definitely wouldn't be the best seeing eye pet.

@NEStalgia Trust me, I did a LOT of research and talked to my fair share of people who had it done before deciding to do the procedure. I'd honestly repeat the experience - not that it was all sunshine and roses, particularly the rest of the day after it was done - but preferably not anytime soon. XD I kind of figured I'd be one of those one-off cases too, but so far I've been proven wrong.

@Tyranexx Good to hear! I wish you a safe and speedy recovery. I'm going to start training a herd of seeing eye bunnies you wait and see!

@Tyranexx good to hear that. For me, my only motto is if it ain't broke don't fix it, and if it's slightly broke, just try to scotch tape or and see how long it holds..... I'd descend into looking like whats his name with the red stapler in office space before anyone beams a phaser into my retina.

I’m in favor of guide cats. Not just for visual impairments, though; for everything. Search and rescue, contraband sniffing, supports. Talk about a population cull.

@Ryu_Niiyama Thanks! I'll look forward to seeing that herd of cute, useful bunnehs! A friend of mine who loves rabbits would definitely love to see that!

@NEStalgia Ah, Milton? I'm familiar with some Office Space references, but unfortunately it's one of the movies I haven't seen yet. I'll make a note to look for it next time I'm out. From what I do know about it, the movie seems right up my alley. XD

In terms of my vision, I was to the point where I couldn't always safely wear contacts due to some allergens in the air at certain times of the year, plus I was starting to experience a couple of other issues related to long-term wear. I also absolutely HATE wearing glasses.

Basically, I was sick of messing with my eyes and decided to take the plunge. Before, I couldn't safely do much of anything without a visual aid. I could manage reading maybe, but only if my nose was a couple of inches from what I was reading. Things like driving? ...I like my no ticket record.

@NorseGamerTommy Congrats on the first car. I’m assuming you don’t have a large commute? From what I understand, European nations have more charging stations, too.
I looked into converting one of my old vehicles into a hybrid, but it was too cost prohibitive. And I’ve never had a daily commute shorter than 20 miles each way. Rural America
