    Are there any countries in northern Europe that have no or very low taxes on silver coins that I can import back to Sweden?

    Pre-sale tickets for Bonnaroo are sold out. What is the best way to get some? I'm trying to get 5 general admission tickets, but there is no way I can wait to chance it and hope to get some at the gate. I've never been to any of these huge festivals so I don't know how these ticket sales work at all. Will people sell me some on sites like ebay or whatever, and if so can I trust these people?

    Why does my face look really really fat if I don't shave for 4 days. I look like I gained 20 kg.

    faster than most, maybe not four days but 5-6. It becomes a few milimeters long. It makes my skin thicker and my face swells.

    Don't talk, take cough medicine, and drink orange juice. (Actual orange juice, not the imitation like the Tang I am drinking now because I am too cheap for real orange juice.)

    Inhale chamomile (tea) vapor. Put the steaming liquid in a bowl, your face above it and cover your head with a towel so the vapor will be concentrated in the air you inhale.

    Orange juice is bad (too acidic). Try Gatorade.

    Hot juice diluted with honey is better.

    So in PE class today we were playing soccer, and I was being a good in the game teammate. After a while, I notice my heartbeat is REALLY pounding, and I start having shortness of breath, but not really bad. My chest doesn't hurt, but I can feel a small amount of discomfort. After my team's round was over, we all sat down I started coughing a lot. (I've had a consistent cough for a few weeks though) This isn't the first time this has happened. I can remember it happening ever since the beginning of this year. This also isn't a consistent thing. Sometimes I'll get this on a two minute run, sometimes playing soccer, but most of the time I can run for a while and feel fine. (Or any other activity)

    Anyone ever heard of anything like this?

    I would refrain from playing any sports or overly exerting yourself physically until you see a doctor, which I would do ASAP as it sounds like you might have some kind of arrhythmia.

    To me the symptons you describe sound like you have been exercising beyond a comfortable limit and it's completely natural.

    I never grew wisdom teeth. Not one. Does this make me some sort of ultra evolved human being?

    No. It makes you extremely fortunate.
