    Who DOES that? Honestly. I don't understand people.

    WTH is going on with so many worthless people hurting helpless little children. Even when it comes down to physically abusing their own child/grandchild. How can they do this stuff.

    I hope the boys won't need surgery for the burns. I could go into a long first hand account of being someone who needed surgery on their tongue as a child, and well up into my 20s, it's a rough and painful road to travel. I hope they will be ok.

    First, so much for family visitation of foster children. Second, exactly how dumb is this woman when she knew the children were already under the care of CPS/Foster?

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:

    No, just one who has had to have multiple surgeries on my tongue from age 7 to age 22. I should still be having them according to the dr but no way am I going to go through that again in this life time. Depending on the extent of the surgery, as was my case, one may have to go through months of speach therapy, which is painful in itself, you also become withdrawn because of slurred speach, mockery and bullying follows suit etc. Just not a pleasant experience in any regard, and something that is always on your mind when meeting new people and so on.

    While I am certainly happy to hear that you didn't have your tongue burned, I am so sorry about all you did have to go through with the surgeries and associated emotional and social impact. I don't blame you for refusing additional procedures.
