I'm currently at the Old Home Pond, totally clear-headed as they didn't put me under general anesthetic to yank the offending tooth. Instead, they used Nitrous Oxide gas. It worked, I didn't particularly care what was going on while they dug around, but whoo-doggie I do not think I like Nitrous all that much. It was unpleasantly like being drunk... and if you don't think that's an unpleasant feeling, ask a glass of water.*
So, yeah, I'm drooling and bleeding all over the place but for now, all is well. So far. I think.

Glad to hear that you're OK.
I think Nitrous Oxide is considered a "general anesthetic". It depends a lot on how much they use, but it's possible for them to put you out like a light with it.
I'm curious: did they also use a local?

*BLAM* "WTF was that? Who cares? I'm tripping balls!!!"
Glad the yanking went okay. Follow his post-procedure advice; believe me you don't want to get the condition known as "dry socket". That sucks almost as bad as having the tooth still there....

A minor hijack: I spent this weekend in Monterey for the Rolex Historic Motorsports Reunion. One of the race groups was 1966-1983 Formula One cars. I took a video of the group making it's first hot pass through the corkscrew which you can see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10vF_-e20mE Hope that helps you feel better!
I have literally thousands of pictures and other videos of the event which I'd be happy to share with you, let me know.

David, I'm a firm believer that the Historic Motorsports events are populated by lunatics... imagine taking a 40year old car out and racing it against other 40 year old cars! Then say that there are only five of your type of car EVER MADE.
Yeah, I'd be nervous.
