if I read that first coulda saved me the stamp on a PM ;-)


as a MAD modeler I look at all sorts of things to get "inspiration"
then am bombarded by ads for ............argggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


information tek has expanded so fast in last few years (decades not months)


in WW1 details was slow to get back ..........maybe weeks later
now "the MAN" gets details of a battle in secs
one day (not so far away) we will be able to see that battle from helmet cams(woteva)


hope we don't get to that film where the kid at home is controlling the man in the field  :(ROFLMAO:


so buy an ad blocker .........they make better ads
so find the switch in your head to ignore things you don't want


but be aware some switches are MUCH harder to turn off ..........then to switch on

[/i]P.S.: totally off topic, but the other thread has become a sort of kasbah thus I had to unsubscribe from it:NO.
As far as I know the migraine is seldom (if ever) retinal, and if it were it wouldn't affect the whole brain.
The common migraine (of which I'm an affectionate patron) is due to a temporary local vasoconstriction in the visual cortex - in the back of the head - that causes a temporarily blind area (the scotoma) to appear in the visual field of both eyes, though generally limited to one side.
The subsequent slow release of the vasoconstriction is damn painful - the brain is insensitive to pain but unfortunately the blood vessels aren't - though it can be helped by gulping down a coffee or three as caffeine is a powerful and fast vasodilator.

Where did you find that garbage? Alas, when we were young one needed at least a college degree to write about medical stuff... :sad:

Did you google "retinal migraine" perchance? There are several/many articles about it.

Look up "transient aphasia" while you're at it as well. It's also called "Migraine Babble" where you can't talk right when you have a migraine. That was part of what happened to me before.

I'm not a f**king idiot as you all seem to think.

When one starts a comment with "As far as I know" it means that it's not certain, proven or correct. 

And rest assured...I'm not running to Ray's defense.   She is capable of taking care of herself which has been proven many times in here by others who didn't think she knew what she was talking about.

Now, let's all play nice....

I'm really sorry Sidherose!
Please don't get me wrong: I didn't say that retinal (monocular) migraine doesn't exist, just that it is definitely rare and totally different from the common migraine that gives so many people (including me) those damn splitting headaches. A local retinal vasoconstriction is likely to cause even intense local pain but hardly the feeling that your whole head is about to explode.

Yes, I google a lot of things. But, in particular when the issue concerns me directly, I still prefer to double check on a few printed sources.

However, far more important than the gibberish above, I never, ever implied that you are an idiot! I'm sorry that you could think so and that you're mad at me for something I didn't mean :-(
Say just a word and I'll vanish back in the virtual nowhere I came from a few months ago.

From what I read about it, they're not really sure how often they occur because people don't tend to mention them to their doctor.

I don't believe I ever said anything about my head feeling like it was going to explode. I did say it felt like someone was trying to rip my eyes out because of the throbbing pain around my eye, and the horrible headache behind my eye - the one that hurt with the original headache. That is exactly how that type of migraine is described. I also suffered the Migraine Babble. I have two people that can vouch for that because they spoke to me that evening. That was the first one I had. I didn't want to get another one like it the second time. I said all of that and yet everyone kept insisting I only had dry red eyes. I know what's wrong with me better than strangers who don't even know me. Like they know my headache better than I do. I doubt it.

Besides that I was just being nice and saying why I was not going to be around. And trust me, my head hurt so bad that even that was an effort. That's all it was, but it gets this big to do about nothing made out of it. Can't we just leave it? Why can't anyone accept my word I know what happened to me? Well that makes me feel like ya'll think I'm a moron.

It's not just you.
