Have been postponing a full physical for a three years now.
That's not too bad. I'm not even sure when I had my last one. Probably over 10 years ago. I don't go to the doctor unless I think something is really wrong.

I've got this, but it has never caused me any issues, unless you count having to get a waiver to join the Army. I didn't even know until I had the Army physical.

Knee damage requiring trip to orthopedic doc / therapist.
My 7yo has an issue going on with his knee right now. He has a lump and is limping around, so we took him to the orthopedic doctor. They did x-rays, but couldn't tell what it is. Then he had an MRI done, and they still aren't sure what it is. My wife tried to get them to do a biopsy, but they didn't want to. I have to take him to Children's Hospital in Boston next week to see a bone and soft tissue tumor specialist.

Anyone know what cancer looks like on an MRI?

Because (here comes my question)... if I don't go to the doctor, he/she can't tell me there's something wrong with me, meaning that I'm perfectly healthy, yes?
Pretty much. I figure you will know when something is wrong.

Be careful with this sort of thing. We lost an immediate family member to this sort of thing last right around this time. His murmur/defect caused him to drift off to sleep while at work. He never woke up.

I'm sure you will be fine Laetitia. You take care of yourself with excercise and eating right. No need to fret. Now if you will excuse me, I got a case of the vapors and must fan myself and sip on some iced tea on the porch til they pass.

Mine is pretty mild. Have known about it my whole life. About once a decade, somebody will send me off for an echocardiogram. Not because I'm exhibiting any signs of trouble... just checking.

My mother's tumors - which are not classified as cancerous - show up on MRIs exactly the same as cancerous growths. The difference is seen during biopsy.

MRI before biopsy is a good idea. You want them to have as much information about the area of concern before exploring sharp implements. I hope it turns out to be something odd, as opposed to something harmful. Odd growths, inflammation and suchare annoying as hell, but I'll take a lot of annoying over illness any day.

I "appear to be healthy" but wont be told for sure until next Wednesday, after the PA gets back results all the bloodwork. Until then, I'm going with dyspesia and melancholia as my primary complaints.

I think so - Thanks for asking. Found out Christmas Eve:

Vitamin D deficiency - seems insane, with all the time I spend outside
Cholesterol is 207, and they want me to get it below 200. But...
HDL (good) score is 78 (60 is considered high),
Tri is 73
LDL (bad) 56 (anything below 100 is considered optimal)

The ratio is weighted much more to the good for me to worry about "managing" my cholesterol through diet. I'm not giving up butter & whole milk... cravings for sweets would go thru the roof.

I want to atleast try to convince my boss of stop paying taxes on my labour.

How do I brush the subject of tax evasion to my boss?

Any resources? Any advice?

Appreciate it.

My advice is to not even try. No matter where you work the business is in business to make money not break the law. In the end even bringing the subject up might have a negative effect on how your boss views you. You are there to work not make statements. A better option is to start your own business and gauge for yourself if the risk is worth it. Even a part time one on the side might be enough to give you some relief knowing you have at least one foot off the plantation.

My iron is fairly new, and it keeps doing a couple of weird things I can't really figure out.

For one, every time I press the steam button, a bunch of gravel comes out of the holes. How the fuck did that get in there? Was this thing assembled in a dust factory or something?

 Another thing is that there is a white crust forming on the holes where the steam comes out of. I can't figure out if its from the spray-on starch, or residue from the fluoride they put into the water.

What thinks you?

My money is on calcium deposits.  Try using distilled water...oh, and to get out all the crap, add vinegar and let it boil the crap out a few times, then rinse well.

A few years ago on Free Talk Live Ian and Mark played an audio recording of a man being tortured by police.  They had come to arrest him for violating his parole, I think, and beat the crap out of him while unknowingly being taped doing it by his wife.  It was somewhere in the South, and the recording was just brutal.  Does anybody remember that guy's name?

Thank you!  I needed it for a pro-recording the police argument.
