Random Questions

Hey guys, I haven’t been around much I know, college is kicking my arse pretty hard. However, I still troll around once a week. Now, I need some help.

  1. I got this Brita filter, the water contains a lot of chlorine, but in the water after the filter is little black dots from inside the filter, is that normal?

  2. It’s a medical question. I’ve been having this bad cough for the past two weeks. During the day it’s fine, maybe once in a while, but from 10PM on, my throat itches like crazy and I just cough every 10 minutes for around 2 hours max before I fall asleep. Now, I should go to the medical place and check it out, but that costs money, so can anyone tell me what’s wrong with me? Or what I should do about it?
