In December 1976, financially desperate NASA engineer Arthur Lewis and his wife Norma find a package on their doorstep, containing a wooden box with a large red button. The mysterious and disfigured Mr. Steward arrives to deliver the key to unlock the button, and tells Norma that if the button is pushed, she will receive $1 million in cash, but someone she does not know will die. He gives her $100 for allowing him to enter the house and voice his deal, and leaves.
Another couple is offered the same box. They also decide to press the button; at the same time, Arthur shoots Norma while embracing her, and Walter is healed from his condition. It is implied that this mysterious offer will continue among other couples in the future.

The Department of Transportation has now released the 2009 Small Community Air Service Development Program (SCASDP) awards that we discussed here last year, so how'd they do? Well, I agree with some and not with others. But unlike with the 2008 SCASDP awards, I actually picked one winner correctly. That one, a small Samoan airport, and a consortium of small Arkansas airports lead my list of the best picks by the DOT. I'll touch on my least favorite picks tomorrow.
Jason is finally a teenager and is excited to have the summer all to himself and his best friend, Hector, when his mother announces that she is shipping him to St. Petersburg, Florida, instead. The first line in the story proclaims that his grandmother has just passed away, so Jason must help his father bury her. Everything seems to be going all right until a mysterious phone call shakes Jason to the core. Suddenly, he is swept into a world of old, secret-coded postcards and hidden stories, family secrets, and late-night missions.
I have been experiencing this for the last few months, I have been searching the web looking for answers. I am a 45 year old female, in good health, I take no medications, thin, active, I eat healthy, so I am at a loss. I have this feeling like there is something under my right rib cage as if something is stuck underneath or enlarged. At first I thought I had strained a muscle b/c I had been working out in the yard the day before it started. It doesn't hurt, it just feels like there is something there that shouldn't be but when I touch the area there is no swelling or bulge. After about 3-4 weeks when it wasn't going away I went to see my doctor. They did blood work, urine labs and sent me for an ultrasound of gallbladder, all came back normal. I have no other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, etc. just this feeling like something is there. It seemed to go away on it's own and then came back and has come and gone since sometimes lasting a few days, sometimes a few weeks. When it is back wearing a bra is uncomfortable. Sometimes there is a warmth or burning sensation in the area. The only other symptoms I have had that I think are related are these: A few months before this started I experienced a fluttering sensation, almost like when I was pregnant and the baby moved, in the same location, a couple of times. Since this has started, on 3 or 4 different occasions, I have experienced a charlie horse like spasm in the same area, below the right rib, when bending over from a sitting position. Does anyone have any answers as to what this might be? Does it sound like IBS? Peptic Ulcer? Hiatal Hernia?
wow i just stumbled upon this thread. ive had ribcage pain for about 3 months and ive also got gerd and a hiatal hernia. i feel discomfort in the front and on the sides of my ribs too and my back ribs. its even tender to the touch. ive had a ct, colonoscoy, endoscopy and no answers. they say maybe slow gi and inflammation but nothing difinitive. its so frustrating i dont know what to do to feel better there are no answers.
The way you describe the organ flipping or getting stuck describes me to the T. I have had 4 children, and 1 miscarriage. I have always had these mysterious illnesses where surgery becomes necessary and is labeled exploratory surgery. During my third pregnancy I was found to have a cystic hematoma which eventually ruptured and took out one tube and one ovary. The doctor explained to me that it was DNA left in me since I was in my mother's womb and grew larger each pregnancy I myself had which by baby number three it burst. Maybe look into that. Could have killed us and I remember fighting the whole time just to prove that A I was in fact pregnant and B something was wrong. Also want to note that it ruptured after I ate and drove my car.
This is so similar to my problem. going on a year now, not seen a doc as it doesn't seem like it will be diagnosed properly. 40 years old male, fit and healthy. When I'm not having a flare up, (which is usually an acidy burning pain that comes in waves right under my right bottom rib) I have occasional back pain in the area too, it feels to me to be inflammation triggered. I don't have the bubble feeling very often but I do have a constant feeling of something touching my skin just below my ribs on my right side. Weird feeling, like a label is touching my skin from my shirt, and if I place my hand on the area, the feeling disappears. Makes me think something gets inflamed and aggravates a nerve or something.
Walt has trouble getting in touch with Jesse, who's been avoiding him since his encounter with Spooge. Jesse is also not providing product to his dealers, so Walt arranges to deliver it. He learns that the word on the street is that Jesse killed Spooge and, thanks to his new reputation as a cold-blooded killer, they're having no problem at all collecting payment. Walt decides the time has come to expand their territory and put Jesse's new reputation to good use. Meanwhile, Skyler goes back to work for Ted Beneke, her former boss. She increasingly relies on Ted for emotional support due to Walt's constant absence and strange behavior. ("Negro y Azul")
After one of their dealers, Jesse's friend Combo, is murdered by a rival gang, Saul proposes new distribution method for Walt and Jesse's product. Under stress, Jesse tells Jane that he is a drug dealer, though she had already deduced as much. Saul puts Walt in touch with a meth distributor named Gustavo "Gus" Fring, a cautious yet successful businessman who is skeptical of Jesse's dependability but agrees to purchase Walt's product. However, Gus expresses concern about Jesse's drug problem, which has escalated into heroin use due to Jane's relapse. Walt receives a large offer for the short-notice delivery of the remainder of their inventory, but at the same time receives a call from Skyler, notifying him of her imminent labor. ("Mandala")
Walt and Skyler plan to tell Hank that they paid for the car wash with illicit gambling winnings. They rehearse the story and even attend a support group for gambling addicts, but Walt remains too distracted to put much effort into the charade. During a family dinner, Hank tells Walt that he is informally consulting on a murder case for the local police and reveals evidence that implicates Gale as cook of the high grade blue meth that's been turning up in the Southwest. Hank also asks Walt about the mysterious initials "W.W." in Gale's notebook, to which Walt initially replies "You got me," but then points out that they stand for "Walt Whitman," a favorite poet of the deceased meth cook. ("Bullet Points")
Skyler, Walt Jr., and Holly go into DEA protection at Hank's and Marie's insistence. Hank harries ex-partner Steve into investigating the laundry; as Steve looks around there, Gus calls Jesse in the lab to tell him what's happening is Walt's fault, but Jesse still refuses to "sign off" on eliminating Walt. Saul summons Jesse to his office, where he's anxiously packing up, saying it's the "end times"; he gives Jesse's savings to him and tells him Gus threatened Walt's family. Andrea calls Jesse to the hospital because her son Brock is in critical condition with a mysterious flu-like illness. Jesse, suspecting what has happened, fishes for a cigarette, finds the ricin vial missing and tells Andrea to have the doctors treat Brock for poisoning. Jesse goes to Walt's house, where Walt has barricaded himself inside with just a revolver for protection. As Walt rambles, Jesse picks up the gun and accuses Walt of poisoning Brock; Walt pleads for his life and tells him Gus must be behind the poisoning. Walt presses the revolver against his forehead, daring Jesse to kill him but Jesse can't, as he beli
