About ten years ago I vowed never to go to a big arena gig again - being treated like cattle and refused bringing drinks or food (or medication!) in, walking miles, stupid rules, nightmare car park scrum afterwards, all ruin the experience for most punters, and make it impossible for us disabled folks.

I also factor Ticketmaster into this equation. Even if I could afford to pop for some of these shows, I can’t stomach that beast.

Gone are the days when affordability in ticket prices was within reach of a us teenagers.
Bowie’s 1976 ‘Station to Station’ tour at the Nassau Coliseum. This was a ticket I had purchased for a friend who at the very last minute backed out. The rest of us had a great time. Hands down, the best concert I’d ever attended to this day.
Floor seats, center section, row 39 for $9.50

Being a retired dentist I am very pessimistic of this treatment ever coming into fruition for the masses. How can you transfer the genetic info to determine the size of the tooth to fit into its desired space? Single or multi rooted tooth? I am still waiting for the vaccine that would rid humanity of cavities. That was a promise decades in the making that never materialized. Or growing cartilage to reduced artificial hip replacement surgeries. This procedure should not be a deterrent to treatment, but to ask the most common question of my patients: will insurance cover it? Considering insurance won’t even cover implants, I doubt this would be in their procedure code list. Keeping with my cynical rant, if the market is not there for the product, it will fade into obscurity. There was a toothpaste on the market that was developed by the NIH that clinically proved to remineralize decay with constant use. I might have been named Renew or Renamel. I forgot. Lasted about a year on the market. No one bought it. So, the article is interesting from a scientific standpoint, but not sure it is practical. I chalked this article up to something of a graduate study that is interesting but not practical. Heck, I attended a lecture that proposed the cat’s meow for filling a tooth that needed root canal was concrete. That’s right. Needless to say, that died on the vine. Sorry, don’t know what got into me.

I appreciate hearing from the trade. As a layman it’s hard to weave through fact and fiction.

I saw this on Reddit today.

Fortunately this is a fake.

I obviously didn’t know that :grimacing:

Maybe it belongs in the humor thread?

I am certain the purpose of the creator of this inforaphic was not to be funny, but malicious.

Being introduced to this album by my older cousin back in 1970, I couldn’t pass up this interesting article and website - especially since I see it every time I walk to Washington Square Park. The entire site is a “down the rabbit hole” of interesting articles, photo’s and so much more. The saddest expose deals with the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911, which took place two blocks away from the Neil Young photo.
Pour a cup of coffee and dig in…
