Cataract surgery...how long does it take to heal?

It looks like I have a cataract in my left eye. Right eye is 20/20, but need surgery on the left.

From start to finish, how long does it take to get back to taking care of yourself? I hate to be dependent on anyone.

Thanks for any info!

Need help with someone who can do math.

I simply cannot do math and I need an answer to this:

$39,401.74 is 70% of what number?

I know...math is simple and wonderful...and I wish I could comprehend it!

Thanks in advance...

"I even don't know who this woman is." Tfg says about the verdict.

Funny thing, maybe I missed something in all the years I practiced law, but...I did not know until "his Lordship" informed all of us that in order to be found liable of rape and/or sexual abuse, one had to be introduced to the his/her victim prior to the assault.

Well, dang...I never knew!!!!

GMAFB...like I did not know my victim, so I cannot be found liable!?!?!?! Does this also apply to fraud, elder abuse, child porn, etc.?

Four Proud Boys members found guilty of seditious conspiracy


It's CNN, but since the other thread was closed, I grabbed what I could. Apologies.

Four members of the far-right Proud Boys have been found guilty of seditious conspiracy by a jury in Washington, DC, for their role to forcibly prevent the peaceful transfer of power from then-President Donald Trump to Joe Biden after the 2020 election.

Defendants Ethan Nordean, Joseph Biggs, Zachary Rehl, Enrique Tarrio and Dominic Pezzola face a range of charges, including three separate conspiracy charges, obstructing the Electoral College vote and tampering with evidence. 

The verdict marks the third time that prosecutors have secured convictions for seditious conspiracy in the Justice Department’s historic prosecution of those who breached the Capitol that day.

The jury was unable to reach a verdict on the seditious conspiracy charge against Pezzola, as well as several other counts against all five defendants. The judge instructed them to continue deliberations.

I have gotten THREE calls from Medicare Advantage before noon today!!!!!!

The first two were from "Kathy" and clearly recorded and keyed to respond to what was said. On the second call, I started speaking Romanian and "Kathy" immediately hung up.

The third call was from a "live" person...and I told them, "DO NOT CALL ME AGAIN RE: MEDICARE ADVANTAGE!!!!!!"

I cannot just not answer because I am waiting for some information I need on a project and I am not sure what number will be returning my call.

I am sooooooooooo sick of Medicare Advantage and their damn unsolicited phone calls!!!!

EDIT TO ADD: I just got my FOURTH MOTHERFUCKING call from Medicare about 2 minutes ago and I let the caller know how pissed I was. Apology? No...hung up on me!!!!!!

Can I have some "good luck" wishes and vibes from my DU family for a job I want?

I saw an ad for a part time job that fits me to a "T" and I would love to have this job. It's legal work and it is an exact fit to what I like and what I can do and can do very, very well.

The lead atty is an old timer like me and the office is about 5 miles from me.

Thank you for the support!

Edit for typo.

ROFLMAO! I really love to fuck with MAGAts!!!!!!

I had a known MAGAt, a neighbor, go off on me yesterday about the white powder and death threat to DA Bragg -- how deserved it was. The MAGAt has soured on tRump and has mega warmed up to DeSatan. About a week before the death threat news about DA Bragg, he asked me what I thought of DeSatan. I just laughed and changed the subject. We periodically run into each other since we live across the street from each other and during the 2020 election he took offense at my window sign -- "Trump for Prison" -- and tries to light me up over politics nearly every damn time he sees me.

Well, yesterday he proceeded to tell me that Bragg was a total nothing. I told the MAGAt that Bragg was a Harvard law grad...and that was something. The idiot MAGAt took the bait -- He spewed negatives about Harvard law grads and what POS they are, worth nothing, self interested only...etc.

When he stopped, I smiled, and sweetly said, "Well, DeSantis is a Harvard law grad..." Mr. MAGAt just stood there, said nothing, skewed his facial features a bit (might have been trying to think) then and walked away!!!!!!! I just waved...with a smile on my face!

Edit for leaving too much space at the end of my post.

Asshole RWNJ former friend of mine, in 2017 we had our last conversation.

The dumb shit just could not shut up about tRump — praised him like a gawd. Went on and on about that POS and his 2nd term as POTUS.

For a long time, I just kept my mouth shut, but I could not help myself — I started laughing hysterically.

The RWNJ stopped talking and stared at me in anger. While continuing to laugh, I said that not only was tRump going to lose in 2020, but he was going to prison. The nut job blew up royally.

So far, I called one out of two correctly — hope this trend continues!
