vraag van de dag voor 20-11-08:

i've been having hickups all evening and now i cannot seep because of them

how do i get rid of these hickups?? :confused:

Brynn 11-19-2008 10:53 PM

The only thing that works with my kids is this: I hold up a dollar and say "If you can hiccup for me exactly when I tell you to, you can have this five dollar bill." Then we concentrate on the task for a little while - "Hiccup right....NOW! Nope, you missed it. Try again...."
They are so distracted that they forget to hiccup. They rarely get the money unless it is absolutely perfect, and it never is - which is the secret of its power.
They are so relieved to have stopped hiccuping that they don't care.
So Frieda, if you will hiccup for me the exact second that you read "now" then I will give you a five dollar bill.
Okay....


ready?





NOW!

never-fail cure:

drink a shot of red wine vinegar, straight up.

it shocks your system so thoroughly that your diaphragm resets. it's extreme but it works.

MoJoRiSin 11-20-2008 01:06 AM

WAY BETTER THAN VINEGAR !!

one packet or 2 teas --lean head back and pour in the back of throat

Spoonful of peanut butter.

YsaPur EsChomuw 11-20-2008 12:43 PM

I usually drink a teaspoonful of lemon juice. Or two, if one doesn't help.

But I suppose you've already stopped hiccuping.

zero 11-20-2008 02:14 PM

frieda to get rid of the hiccups and finally get seeping what you must do is stick yours index fingers firmly in yours ears and at the same time an assistant or bystander must hold a big glass of cold water to yours mouth for you to drink it all up nonstop. altrenatively the assiatant or bystander could stick their fingers in yours ears and enabling you hold the big glass of water. it doesnie matter! good luck and i hope you get some seep now.

Frieda 11-20-2008 08:35 PM

:) thanks everybody :)

and brynn you owe me 5 :p

I used to get my kid to stick his fingers in his ears and holler the alphabet song to get rid of hiccups. It never worked, but it was funny.

"
consider a photo of someone you think is you eight years ago. what makes that person you? you might say he she was composed of the same cells as you now. but most of your cells are replaced every seven years. you might instead say you're an organism, a particular human being, and that organisms can survive cell replacement - this oak being the same tree as the sapling i planted last year.

but are you really an entire human being? if surgeons swapped george bush's brain for yours, surely the bush look-alike, recovering from the operation in the white house, would be you. hence it is tempting to say that you are a human brain, not a human being.

but why the brain and not the spleen? presumably because the brain supports your mental states, eg your hopes, fears, beliefs, values, and memories. but then it looks like it's actually those mental states that count, not the brain supporting them. so the view is that even if the surgeons didn't implant your brain in bush's skull, but merely scanned it, wiped it, and then imprinted its states on to bush's pre-wiped brain, the bush look-alike recovering in the white house would again be you.

but the view faces a problem: what if surgeons imprinted your mental states on two pre-wiped brains: george bush's and gordon brown's? would you be in the white house or in downing street? there's nothing on which to base a sensible choice. yet one person cannot be in two places at once.

in the end, then, no attempt to make sense of your continued existence over time works. you are not the person who started reading this article.

same person, different ¿question of the day?

trisherina 11-22-2008 01:04 PM

That is a truly lovely article, especially the photo captions.

I have a Saturday ¿question of the day?:

Do you nap?

lukkucairi 11-22-2008 01:42 PM

occasionally

zero 11-22-2008 02:09 PM

:mad: trisharama acannie believe you've woken me up just to ask me this!




if you must know the answer's NO!

12"razormix 11-22-2008 02:39 PM

i nap on the train.. :o ( ah cinnae help it )

zero 11-22-2008 03:44 PM

^yes in fact that's how we first met.


o it seems like only yesterday on that train. there was i, minding my own business, reading my tiny rubbish booklet of "disturbing" dreams when i became aware that the person seated beside me was napping uncontrollably. next thing, her head flopped on to my shoulder. i looked down. that's right it was zormix! (don't worry - hers mouth wasnie wide open and she wasnie dribbling, no defintely not) i just let her nap there for a wee while then i put by book down and joined her.

rumbled...

I get 'em all from these fine folk

Brynn 11-23-2008 08:58 AM

If I could nap, I would nap all the time, nap away all that's not right with the world. I love to nap, but it throws me off into nighttime too early.

MoJoRiSin 11-23-2008 02:07 PM

no
(and that includes nary a single nap when i was pregnant with my daughter)

lukkucairi 11-23-2008 05:27 PM

for some reason I feel like taking a nap right now...

Frieda 11-23-2008 09:33 PM

i nap all the time

sometimes i think i've never been awake at all :)

lukkucairi 11-23-2008 10:12 PM

QOTD NEW!!

¿ how do you know when you're dreaming ?

Jack Flanders 11-24-2008 02:52 AM
