    Well, I manage to earn $6K with Clickbank within 14-weeks. In my previous post, I thought it took 5-months but it's a miscalculation - in fact it's only 14-weeks. Without any websites or e-Whoring :p

    Anyway...

    I felt a small swell on the gums on one of my tooth. I visited the dentist today and he told me I needed Root Canal Treatment. holy mother fu**ing macoroni cheese sandwich...

    Few years back (when I don't even know anything about making moeny online), I had a Root Canal Treatment before and it cost me $1K+. When everything was done, I swore that I will never visit THAT dentist again.

    I guess it's a joke.. today I went and I was told by that same dental surgeon that I needed a Root Canal Treatment for another tooth... He told me whether I want to extract the tooth (the cheapest solution) or to have a Root Canal Treatment. But of course, adult tooth will never grow back again so I have no choice but to reluctantly accept the Root Canal Treatment.

    Within a few minutes later, the tools were prepared and the treatment started. An hour later, the Dental Surgeon extracted $1K from my wallet.

    Holy mother fuc*ing god-damn beer and cheese sandwich!
    That is nearly one month of my CB earnings!!! FU*K!

    Worst still, I need to visit again a month later for "Crowning". If you guys do not know what is that.. it's basically having a "protection" or "shield" placed over the operated tooth.


    So my advice to you guys... always have a dental checkup and have fillings done if necessary. If not, you will end up like me.. having to pay a hefty price.



    Tooth Fillings = $50-$100 per tooth

    Compare to

    God-damn Root Canal Treatment = $700+ per tooth
    Holy-mother-fuc*ing Crowning = $550 per tooth
    Shitty Preparation for Crowning = $150-$200 per tooth.

    LOL! I did brush my teeth and I do it EVERYDAY - 2-3 times per day!

    But unfortunately, there's always plaque that will grow somehow and this will cause tooth decay. and this mother-fuc*ing tooth decay can slowly progress to a worse state!

    You will never know you have tooth decay till you have a dental checkup - that's the shitty part cos' I always thought I had good dental hygiene!

    What a nice price. 1k$ for an hour of work and 10$ material cost.
    That's a rip off, this is the main issue ;)

    Well stuff like that is less thinkable in most european countries, full health insurance for everyone by law.
    The result are more reasonable prices for such jobs, dentists are not cheap here either but I am sure the health insurance here does not pay 1k$ for an hour job.

    Its a pretty expensive lesson, saying that, i remember years ago i used to brush my teeth straight after eating and especially if i ate sugary foods, turns out this is the worst thing you can do as apparently your tooth enamel is soft after eating and you actually remove the enamel which is there to protect your teeth....bummer!!

    Dude, my country is civilized too. Go and google "Singapore" and you will know.

    The sad thing is.. my government doesn't really side welfare support. Unless if I'm working, I will have dental care credits being paid by the company.
    Unfortunately, I'm still a student :(

    Damn... don't you just hate Dental Care?

    How nice if there's like a special toothpaste that actually KILLS plaque and tooth decay effectively!
