Alt-text: I heard the general anesthesia drugs can cause amnesia, so when I woke up mid-extraction I started taking notes on my hand so I'd remember things later. I managed AWAKE BUT EVERYTHING OK" before the dental assistant managed to find and confiscate all my pens."

Edit: Finally. Alt-text.

No alt-text? What the...

Edit: That's more like it! However, the xkcd app that I have for iTouch refuses to acknowledge that alt-text was added. :(

I took too long searching for the alt text to post it.

Also, this describes my first four three to seven day encounters with minecraft (sans painkillerholograms). I've made myself quit for productivity reasons, but it pulls me back.

I keep hearing so many people talking about Minecraft but I don't see the appeal in it.

Also, no title text? :O

Funny.

I had to flatten a plot in a designated zone on my local map once. Twas no more than 64x64 and 10 high. It look 3 hours (with iron tools)

That man has a lot of time on his hands.

I want my wisdom teeth out again, then I can play MC ^_^ (in Peaceful mode, granted)

I've still got my wisdom teeth, but my teeth are aligned crooked up front.
No direct causation that I'm aware of.

I should get doped up on hologram juice and play TeethCraft IRL.

Hmm, I've still got my wisdom teeth too (at 25), though my front teeth are starting to get a little out of line. Maybe I'll need braces again. I hope not.

Um

I started playing Minecraft recently. I made a portion of the world flat.

I'm getting my wisdom teeth out on Friday.

On a related note, Scrapped Princess is pretty much the best anime ever, or at least, that's my memory based on watching it while on post-wisdom-teeth-removal drugs.

Alt text gave me quite the lol. I've never played Minecraft, nor have I gotten my wisdom teeth removed, so I couldn't fully appreciate the bulk of the comic. But yeah, funny alt text.

I got all 4 wisdom teeth extracted in one shot a couple summers ago - some local anesthesia but i was awake through it. That's something I wouldn't want to do again. The only painkillers I got were 20 grams of corticosteroids (for inflammation) and Tylenol and it took only a weekend to recover.

My dentist is Dr. Feelgood. After I got my wisdom teeth pulled I got a big ol' bottle of painkillers, way more than I really needed. Plus he gave me a slip to get them re-filled when that bottle ran out! I ended up getting like 80 vicodin 750's. Not the most potent painkillers out there, but when ya get 80 of them.....
Plus it was a simple extraction they weren't even impacted.

I like where this thread is going

I watched Twin Peaks when out of my mind on pain killers. I don't know if it made more or less sense that way. I'm a little afraid to find out.

I apparently don't have wisdom teeth, so I guess this is one comic I can never "Randal get out of my head" to.

I have never had my wisdom teeth out, nor played minecraft. However, I seem to find the idea of playing a game like this strangely fun while on opiates :)

When I went to get my wisdom teeth out, I had also heard of the possibility of amnesia, and I also brought a pen. After I got home and slept a while, I noted that I had foregone my pocket notebook and scribbled all over my left hand and forearm, but that the only legible words were across the back of my hand:

This made me laugh. I've gotten my wisdom teeth out, but I was only given Tylenol-3 as a painkiller. I was knocked out for my surgery though. The best part was definitely having no feeling in my face for a day. Soup EVERYWHERE!

Also, a friend of mine is constantly urging me to play Minecraft. I feel like it's a bad idea.

Someday someone has to explain the point of minecraft to me. I tried it, but the game doesn't seem to have a point. What is the purpose of the game (except wasting time)?

What is the point of any game besides wasting time?

To answer the question you probably wanted to ask, it's virtual legos with monsters and multiplayer. There's no purpose other than what you want to come up with.

*is jealous*

I may or may not have to get mine out; I'm having another x-ray done at my next appointment, and it'll depend on what that shows. But nevertheless, I am not relishing the prospect. Especially since it'll probably mean ruining one of my holidays, since there is no f-ing way I'm getting them out during the term.



Although apparently I only have three. Guess I'm not that wise.

After I got my wisdom teeth out, I watched Lilo and Stitch on pain killers. Sideways, because it was funnier that way.

Randall has just made this user very happy. Also, the million+ purchases of the game must have too, I guess. And it's not even out of beta yet.

I hope Notch comes back to the forums, but I think he's busy being all successful and stuff.

Had my wisdom teeth out a few years ago, and my surgeon told me if I was his kid, I'd have braces.
I chose to go under general anesthetic. I considered IV sedation (where you're awake, don't feel anything, but don't remember after) but decided that no matter if I wouldn't remember it, I didn't want to hear tiny drills right next to my jaw. Best choice ever. I woke up in recovery feeling like I'd had the best sleep, and worried the nurse by suddenly sitting up (to see if I could).

I had all four out at once to get it out of the way. One was sideways and needed the saw. The painkiller afterwards was part of a clinical trial and I was on placebo for 45 minutes (or else it was a crappy painkiller).

Had it done on a Friday so I'd have the weekend to recover. While recovering, I watched Independence Day. And noticed fewer than half of the glaringly stupid mistakes.
