Article on misdiagnosis and other controversy around "chronic Lyme disease".…

Short version: It's probably not a real thing.

A friend of mine, after a medical procedure (draining a pleural effusion), had a small leak in his lung and he did, in fact, inflate like a balloon for a few hours until it healed. Needless to say, it was pretty alarming. So it is technically possible. But I would say inducing this effect would be terribly unsafe in any setting other than an ICU. Writer and her boyfriend should just get an inflatable suit and explore this kink that way. Some fantasies are not worth the risk.

You do that, Charles. Feel free to not get back to us about it.

They do mention the lawsuit towards the end.

This guy is a scumbag and I can't believe they gave him a platform to defend his vile actions.

@18 Never been an issue with mineā€”the stuff stays fizzy a long time.

@12 This is correct, an old-fashioned soda siphon will do the trick for a lot less money(and they are more fun to use), but then again, with a Sodastream you can make shit WAY fizzier than a soda siphon.
(I'm too chickenshit to try doubling up the CO2 with my seltzer bottle, the manufacturer warns against doing so.)

Also pro-tip for home soda enthusiasts: if you prefer club soda to regular seltzer, dissolve a pinch of baking soda in the water beforehand.

I am actually planning to watch one of the his most nutzoid(yet largely forgotten) performances ever tonight with friends and whiskey. I give you "Deadfall"(1993)…

Can't watch the vid. Will this secret court include an advocate for the individual to be monitored? The current FISA court lacks any kind of public advocate.

(thinking of how I could possibly explain to my 15-year old self that he will one day be more excited for a Planet Of The Apes movie than for Star Wars Episode VII)

@8 What about Denzel?
