Did You Hear the One About Missing Brains in Texas

One hundred human brains were thought to have disappeared from the University of Texas at Austin.

The various combination of jokes was endless with the ingredients being: Texas. Republicans. Missing Brains.

No more joking, though; the mystery of the missing brains has been solved — apparently.

University of Texas (Austin) leaders published an announcement saying that the 100 brains which were believed to have been missing were destroyed in 2002 in the routine and regular destruction of organic waste.

Dental Ripoffs: Open Wide and Say “Gotcha”

By Jerry Nelson, published on Jun 20, 2016

Dental patients are often made to spend hundreds of dollars to correct blunders made by dentists. One patient paid her dentist to fix her teeth and then had to pay another dentist to fix the mistakes the first dentist made; she didn’t get reimbursed by the way.

Citizens Advice has been receiving many calls with problems surrounding dentistry; some dentists are even refusing to correct their mistakes and the mistakes they made. Citizens Advice, a nonprofit group, helped to resolve over 4000 dental problems in 2015. That is an increase of almost ten percent from the 2014.

Being put behind bars won't be great for your well-being, but it's great business for the exploding private business which provides physicians to jails and prisons.

At a trade fair — the 35th Annual American Jail Association Conference — in Austin, Texas recently, companies lined up to peddle everything from coveralls to meal trays. When the national anthem had been sung, and the chaplain finished praying, the people gathered at Austin's convention center got down to the business of giving money.

By Jerry Nelson, published on Jun 17, 2016

If Dr. Arvind Gandhi of Munster, Indiana, a Chicago suburb, ever wants to come out of retirement, he will probably want to work in another field. Maybe become a mechanic at Indianapolis or inspect the moist towelettes at the factory.

He won't be practicing medicine again.

Scarred in Indiana

Varicose Veins: They're Not Just for Grandmother Anymore

By Jerry Nelson, published on Jun 17, 2016
