This is somewhat OT, so I'll gloss over your tenuous grasp of history in the same manner you have glossed over the Greek contribution to art, architecture, science, mathematics, theatre, philosophy, literature, sport, democratic governance - even 'computing' for goodness sake. Ever heard of the Antikythera Mechanism, for example? No? Didn't think so either. None of these are in any way diminished by their belief in a pantheon of gods, which is just about the most ludicrous argument I have ever had the misfortune to encounter.
Leaving aside the two notable exceptions of Akhenaten's Egypt and Israel (the former in any case very short-lived), all ancient civilizations practised varying degrees of polytheism and had their own mythologies. And yes, that includes the Celts & Picts, or did you imagine they were somehow superior in that respect? While they were still breaking stones, Euclid was putting the finishing touches on his magnum opus - The Elements of Geometry - most of which is still taught in your superior English schools to this day. Care to name a British equivalent for me from the same period?
After that kinda spurt of creativity, I'd say they were entitled to kick back their chairs and put their feet up for 2,000 years. They've made their contribution to society and humanity, so they've earned their 'break'. If the Romans continued their work instead of hacking poor old Archimedes into shish kebabs (oh yeah, let's not forget the kebabs - yet another Gk 'invention'). and then plunging Europe into the Dark Ages, who knows where we would be now?
As for owing my life to the US, I'm sure the millions they murdered since WWII (at least 1m in Iraq alone) will be pleased to learn they all died in a good cause - to save my sorry @$$. I've heard of revisionist history, but you take it to a whole new level my friend. Most only attempt it after the memory of the events in question have all but faded, but you try to foist it on me while the images I saw as a child coming out of Vietnam are still seared in my consciousness.
Nice try mate, but you really should try your blinkered fawning of the US military industrial complex on someone much less informed than I am. You might then have the remotest chance of pulling the proverbial on them.
PS That wasn't a job application for the Pentagon was it?
One look in the mirror is all it takes to realize your teeth are the reason you rarely smile. Something needs to be done, but what approach would be best? A friend recommends you consider dental implants, but you are not so sure. Ask yourself these five questions. The answers will help you make the right decision.
Have You Lost Teeth Due to an Accident or Illness?
Teeth can be lost because of decay or some type of health issue that weakens the teeth and gums. You can also lose teeth as the result of an accident. Depending on what has taken place, you may think implants are out of the question. Instead of making assumptions, your best bet is to talk with one of the Newmarket dentists and find out if you are a candidate for this solution. Keep in mind that even if the density of your jaw is weakened, there are ways to correct the problem and still receive implants.
Are You Eating Softer Foods?
Between the missing teeth and the poor condition of those remaining, you tend to avoid foods that require a lot of chewing. There’s less pain if you stick to softer foods. Wouldn’t it be nice to eat whatever you like again without dealing with discomfort? If you like that idea, implants are definitely something you want to discuss with a dental professional.
Do You Find It Harder to Speak Clearly?
Many people don't realize what an impact teeth have on enunciation until several of them are missing. At that point, speaking clearly becomes more difficult than you thought possible. Depending on how much trouble you have, it may be getting easier to hang back and not participate in conversations. Think of what an adverse effect that can have at work, in social situations, and even when you want to have a phone conversation with a friend. Choosing dental implants will change that. Between the way the implants remain firmly in place and the care taken with creating the caps, speaking clearly once again will be easy. Once the work is completed, you will no longer feel the need to stand on the sidelines while others talk.
Do You Hate the Idea of Wearing Dentures?
Dentures are a solution many people choose, but they do come with some complications. Since they rest on the gums rather than being embedded in the bone, you will need an adhesive to hold the plates in the right position. At night, the dentures must come out and be soaked. You also have to take pains to not damage them when it’s time to give them a good scrub. All it takes is one slight miscalculation for a denture plate to slip out of your hand and land on the hard bathroom tile. Contrast that with being able to brush your implants just as you used to brush your natural teeth. They stay in place so there is no chance of the implants slipping off the counter and breaking.
Would You Like to Smile Again Without Worries?
Implants are a long-term solution that eliminates many worries. You can forget about adhesives and the potential for the plates to slip out of position when you are out with friends. The fit and scale is perfect, and you can rest assured the implants always look their best. For people who prefer to go through life with as few complications as possible, implants are the obvious choice. Talk with your dental professional today. Explore the advantages of implants and what they would do for you. After that conversation, your decision will be an easy one.
