While waiting for dental tech class to start today, Poh Yee said that one of her form6 classmates has been kidnapped for about two weeks now. Apparently, a body was found yesterday and it was decapitated, the fingers were cut off and her breasts were cut off as well.
Her father identified the body from the clothes the poor girl was wearing and apparently the skin tone was the same. The news is not totally confirmed but if it is true, that would be so so heartwrenching and disturbing.
What’s with the amount of monsters out there?
Apparently she was shopping alone somewhere and there were witnesses who saw her being dragged into a car by a bunch of men.
Which brings us to the topic of rape.
I don’t understand why we cannot adopt a tit for tat punishment for those damn rapists. Lie Yuen was saying, “Just cut off their dicks lah!”Â
I agree. Why can’t we do that? Why can’t we cut off dicks of rapists’ just so that greater fear will be established far and wide(in our unfortunate nation especially)? I am sure there will be a decline in rape cases with the fear of castration.
You read in the papers that people who rape their own daughters/nieces/nephews only get like 15 years to 20 years of punishment. And if they rape more than once, they will get another 15 years as it is treated as another case. But so what? Some people are still alive after 40 years.
But without a dick, now that’ll teach them a thing or two. You think they can’t satisfy themselves in prisons when they are bored? OFF WITH THE DICKS!!
Rapist rant aside, I’m sorry for turning into such a dental geek as of late. But I suppose that’s good news for the flow of my parents’ kids’Â education fund. Here are more photos of lab today:
A piece of wax we were to use to form a denture base. I once saw a 2nd year dental student in UM manipulating this and I was like, “oooh, i’ll be doing this!”. You have to heat this thing and then press it onto a dental cast. Very much like art and craft.
Forgive me for I am not the best of dental students but I believe what we did today was to make preparations for a bite block. To form a model to be put into the mouths of edentulous patients to see where the teeth should go, as the position of teeth differs in each individual.
1. Cut the wax in half – just enough to press and cover the entire cast.
2.Â Warm the wax so that it becomes soft.
3. Press it reallllly hard onto the dental cast so that the entire impression is copied.
4. Cut off the excess wax.
5. Heat the blunt end of the wax knife and melt any excess material.
6. Heat another piece of wax and fold it like folding a fan. Think jaw breakers! Looks like jaw breakers(the candy).
7. Place the folded wax on top of the denture base.
8. Press press press press press.
9. The fun but tedious part. Heat the blunt end of the wax knife again and solder(?) both parts together so that it forms a smooth surface.
10. Just more soldering/melting and more smoothening. THREE FREAKING HOURS!
I’m ok-ok with my product. The left one is mine, and the right one is Lie Yuen’s.
I hope I got the right amount of width on the anterior and posterior part.
🙂 Sure lah. Our hardwork.
We celebrated by going for a kiu-choi(call dishes) dinner. Oh, the little luxuries in life.
Oklah, quite happy with my handiwork. Not exactly enthusiastic, but satisfied lah. Can lah can lah. ;\
And also, I’ve been reading dentistry stuff when I’m working and even when I’m relaxing. The only non-dental thing that I’m doing these days is when I catch up on the downloaded Friends episodes(I can watch them over and over again).
Obviously there’s alot of work to do as the assessment is next week.(OMFG) And we have our problem based learning class tomorrow which is quite tedious because that means additional reading(which doesn’t necessarily relate to what’s coming out for the assessment). So means more time wasting. Which… means, what the faaarrrrk am I doing here, blogging. But I think I’m quite a speed-blogger. Kwa..kwa.. Half an hour inclusive of photoshoping of photos(just watermarking and resizing but still!). Not bad lah hah.
Oh, when I mean relax by reading dental stuff.. I’m SO ADDICTED TO DENTISTS’ AND DENTAL STUDENTS’ PERSONAL BLOGS! So fun to read. Dentistdownunder was the first one that I was exposed to and I don’t know why, am I turning into a geek? Maybe. But it is fun to read about the cases they get and how annoying some patients can get.
Reading these blogs opens me up to blogs from as far as Canada, US, Australia… etc. Endless, I tell you. And each are just as intriguing as the next.
Might as well share with you some interesting ones before I go:
Okay, your dental geek must now make herself a cup of coffee, down a bottle of Brands Chicken Essence and hang her white clothes out to dry. It’s going to be a long night.
