I’m guessing that employee was properly disciplined?

“Y’know Bob.. we *could* prosecute you for removing that from the building and whatnot… but we think having to explain to your girlfriend that you gave her some extremely radioactive jewelry is gonna be punishment enough…”

Well, we did never see him again after that, so maybe. . .

Yes, I’ve had a few umbrellas that I had to wrestle to the ground in strong winds!

I’m also trying to think of stuff NOT on that list so let’s see:

1.  Underwire bras - the wire works loose and then stabs the wearer OR the underwires cause blistering along their path OR some styles of underwire bras for more developed women are sometimes too wide (the manufacturer believes that along with development there is an additional height spurt) so the wire gouges into the armpit or into the upper arm!

Actually, getting poked by underwires is usually an indication that you’ve got the wrong size.  Or, as you say, the design is wrong - I had a couple of bras that were perfectly fitted for me in store, but when I got to wearing them on a daily basis, found that the bra itself didn’t feel as comfortable, and the underwires were digging in.

I hate when the underwire escapes and creeps out of my cleavage. I look like a spy with an ineptly concealed microphone…

A friend of mine talked of some issues during her pregnancy that she couldn’t understand & her doctors couldn’t explain.  She did not breastfeed her first child, her milk never came in.  She was asking me some things about trying the second time around and halfway through the second pregnancy said, “FEEL THIS!” And shoved my hand in her armpit.  There was this massive, hard, bulby things under her skin.  She went to the doctor & had them drained.  It was milk/colostrum.  She DOES lactate…but for some reason the milk was stuck & couldn’t get past the side of her breast.  The doctor didn’t really say why this happened, but when my friend said she wore underwires from the time she was 12 (even to SLEEP IN )...we just kind of figured she may have pinched off the ducts with the wire.  Really gross.

I don’t know, maybe that caused it. 

My little sister had a similar problem with her first (and only) birth where it appeared she had no milk but not only did her armpit swell, but the appearance of a protrusion appeared too so she ran to the doctor who determined that the protrusion was in fact a ‘nipple’ attempting to develop over where her milk was!  I had NEVER heard of such a thing.  However, my sister does wear a bra but it must be like a triple A because she appears to have barely anything at all so I’m pretty sure there are no wires in what she does wear but it’s possible she doesn’t wear a bra at all and just an undershirt.

However, this made me curious to I did the usual Google search:

http://www.bigbra.com/underwire.php

The first problem with underwire bras is that all underwire bras are made of a plastic coated metal. According to Dr. George Goodheart author of Chinese Lessons For Modern Chiropractors, Goodheart found that it is possible to tape a small metal ball onto an AcuPoint (acupuncture point), and accomplish longer-term stimulation to that point. The BBs are used by thousands of doctors daily. Metal that is constantly on a given point on the human body may cause problems. One critical factor is where the metal is, and what that point ties to in terms of the human psychophysiology. For the underwires in Bras, the wires fall directly onto two very important NeuroLymphatic Reflexes. The one goes to the Liver and Gall Bladder. The other goes to the Stomach.

Dr. Christiane Northrup, M.D., Univ. of Vermont College of Medicine author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, (Bantom Books 2002; page 344) writes “Stop wearing an underwire bra.” Too often this kind of bra cuts off circulation of both blood and lymph fluid around the breast, chest wall, and surrounding tissue.

Dr. Jesse Hanley, M.D., in her book: What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause, (Warner Books, 1999), Dr. Hanley encourages her patients not to wear underwire bras or even tight bras, except for special occasions because they block the lymph glands under the arms, around the breast and chest wall. “Lymph glands play an important role in draining toxins from the breast.”

Nursing bras are made to access the breast for convenient nursing. Nursing bras are available in soft cup and the underwire versions, but underwires can constrict the breast and cause either blocked ducts or mastitis, the inflammation of the mammary glands. Wearing an underwire nursing bra while sleeping carries a high risk of mastitis.

Are all underwire bras bad? No, Suzanne™ bras give that extra support with out wires. However, many women feel that underwires give them extra support. Often women find that the underwires pop out of the underwire bra. It is often a sign that the bra band size may be too large. If the band is moving around the body, this friction wears down the casing or underwire channeling and this can create a hole for the wire to pop out.

Another reason why the wires may pop out is due to the manufacture or care of the bra. The fabric sewn over underwires inside a bra, called channeling, is sometimes made of cotton. Washing in hot water can shrink the channeling and force the underwire to pop out. The manufacturer may not have sewn enough stitches to close the underwire channel and the underwire has been able to pop out.

One of the worst fashion offenders is tongue piercings.  The metal balls create microfractures in the teeth from simply coming into contact with your teeth.  Over time, you can get not just cavities but breaking teeth that must be pulled.

One of the guys here at work has a tongue piercing and it makes him sound like he has a lisp when he talks.  It’s really strange.  I have no idea why he would do it but I guess he likes it.

I watched someone’s kid while she had her teeth repaired from the damage of her tongue ring.
