If there was a surgery for people around here to pronounce "R's" I'd be all for it. ;)

I notice that a government ministry made a movie to scare folks out of the surgery. I can just imagine . . .

OT: I remember a movie in the mid-70s that showed the supposed ill effects of smoking dope -- a kid can't find an opener for a bottle of cola so he smashes the neck against and wall and -- predictably -- cuts his mouth on the jagged bottle, all while blissfully ignorant. Now, mind you, I NEVER INHALED but the friend and I that saw it left laughing ourselves silly. :-D

Continuing the OT: In high school we were shown quite old, B&W, US made films warning on the dangers of cars. There were lots of gorey accident scenes. The most harrowing I recall was a woman being literally dragged out on to the street to identify the corpse of her child who had been knocked down by a car. I promise not even the hard @sses left those movies laughing.
