For the past two years in both the morning and evening, my sister brushes her teeth by putting toothpaste on her tongue. After she does that she puts the dry tooth brush in her mouth and then brushes. She is the only person I know that does this, and I find this really weird. She uses basic mint toothpaste, and she says she just prefers it that way.
It could have very well been bubblegum or cinnamon or vanilla. I just don't get the connection of mint to oral hygiene and breath. Even breath mints: it's in the name. Why do we want our breath to smell like mint and not some other flavor?
This morning I woke up to my Qdad ranting about my prescription fluoride toothpaste that was on the bathroom sink. He was ranting to my mom, who was tuning him out to watch foxnews.
I have a prescription fluoride toothpaste because my teeth are extremely sensitive and prone to cavities, and always have been. I have been using prescription toothpaste since 2016 but my dad decided to read the label today. I should have tuned him out but I tried to keep the peace I explained that I don’t even ingest it, it just helps my teeth. So, by his logic, it shouldn’t hurt me. I know fluoride isn’t harmful but I just wanted to go back to bed and I didn’t want him to throw out a toothpaste that cost $20 even with insurance.
He then went on about how he wouldn’t let me have fluoride as a kid and I finally snapped and said “Maybe that’s why my teeth are rotting out of my head and have been my entire life no matter how much I brush and floss.” He hasn’t spoken to me since.
Very curious as I was doing some toothpaste shopping. I’ve recently started having sensitive teeth and would like to know if it works and how. Thank you
Yep. I really need it to be fixed. Thanks.
Today I bought new toothpaste. It doesn’t sound like much, but I finally used the remainder of the toothpaste that I had. You see, I bought that toothpaste with you on a normal trip to the store. All of our memories are fading, but every day I stand alone brushing my teeth and I think about the day I bought that toothpaste. You standing right next to me. It hasn’t been that long, but with all the other memories leaving me, I found myself holding on to you in the smallest of things. A tube of toothpaste. That was all I had left of you, but now I suppose the new tube is just that, toothpaste. Although normal toothpaste holds no meaning, I hope the next tube brings happier times and sunnier days
ok, so. I think maybe a decent amount of people will remember the hot pink-wearing, catboy, femboy, lesbian-hating obvious troll that was toothpaste-kun, right?
so i’m an admin in his discord server for unknown reasons honestly and if you joined his server you’ll know that it’s very, very dead.
and you may have also noticed, if you’ve been in there within the past 30 or so minutes, fellow admin OMORI and I are worried about his whereabouts. toothpaste went missing without a trace sometime in late 2020. he didn’t say anything to any other admins, didn’t post any announcement, he just up and left so OMO and I are looking for him.
its highly likely that he just got bored of trolling and decided to ghost, but OMO thinks he’s dead so I decided this could be an interesting time to do some investigating.
if anyone has any information about his whereabouts or what happened to him tell me in the replies, all info is appreciated :)
AHHH IT BURNS
Sometimes I swallow toothpaste after brushing my teeth as it feels like a minty, refreshing gulp of fresh air after brushing. It just feels better than spitting it out and it doesn't cause me any issues, so what's the problem?
Edit: So supposedly it does cause issues, and that is a problem. Thank you all for telling me as I was unaware of this.
All of the propaganda, condescension and deliberate misinformation that is distributed regarding the precious metals has been effective to divert speculative interest away until just recently. I can recall many years ago that almost no one cared about the metals. And any time that something emerged that would generate the least amount of excitement it was very easy for the bullion banks to slam the door on that in the early stages by a massive dump of paper metals to hammer the charts flat. Almost ten years of this blatant manipulation got us to where we are today. It has gone on for much longer than that, but the last decade was unbearable.
The Law of Diminishing Returns states that over time the amount of a reaction generated from any inputs will decline. You must expend more and more energy to achieve the same results, or else the effects of your actions lose effectiveness. When you have such a one-sided market for a long amount of time, of course the banker fraud was going to run into trouble. Silver is a tiny subsector and most of the silver mining comes as a by-product from other primary metals. So the combined effects of artificially low spot prices and the lack of investment to build mine supply has brought us to where things stand today.
Now factor in the steady decline of domestic economic activity, the distortion of market efficiency as failing companies are prevented from going bankrupt due to endless bailouts, and the weaponization of financial policy to enable crony government insiders to pick winners and losers. All of these false inputs are marginalizing the majority of the people, while benefiting a tiny handful of wealthy elites.
To recap, the PM sector is heavily rigged, and the entire financial system is also heavily rigged against the average guy on the street. Now here is where it gets interesting: For the first time, enough people are starting to notice. Yeah we had a bit of an epiphany during the Occupy Wall Street movement but it was mainly people expressing frustration without knowing what the problem was. Well now we know. Inflation cannot just be dismissed as isolated price distortions anymore. Its everywhere and people are feeling the pinch. At long last a larger chunk of people are coming to realize we have all been lied to and played by the insiders. This awakening is motivating individuals to look for a way out of the trap. And THAT my friends is why people are buying silver.

This just happened to me yesterday. It's nothing crazy, but I thought it was worth sharing with you all.
After frustratingly trying to get the bolt that plugs the oil drain on my car as well as the oil filter, I decided I should go out to get the supplies I needed to help make my job easier changing the oil. After picking up a quick dinner and the tools I needed to loosen everything, I decided I might as well go shopping for what I needed since there was a store right across the street.
At first, I grabbed my essentials. Amazingly everything was in stock at this store, and I decided to look through the liquor section to see if they carried my favorite craft beer and see what else they had. While I was looking, a man in his 80s (henceforth known as MAN) walked into the area.
MAN: I can't find the toothpaste.
ME: Well, this is the liquor section. *chuckles*
MAN: I know this is. I think it's down aisle 16, but I am not sure.
At this point, I realize he thinks I work at this store. I am wearing a black tee, black jeans, and a stainless steel watch and necklace, and the store uniform is khakis and a black polo with the store logo on it. I was about to tell the man that I couldn't help him because I was not an employee, but I decided that I wasn't in a rush, and if he didn't realize I wasn't an employee, he might really need the help.
ME: How about I help you find what you need?
MAN: Yes, thank you.
I find the aisle where I believe it is and I grab him a couple things of toothpaste, show him what is available, and tell him the prices. After he chooses what he wants, we make our way to the cat food aisle. We went through all the cans of cat food that were available (more options than I thought existed!). He would pick up a can and ask me to read it, I would tell him what it said, and I would hold which cans he decided he wanted. After about 10 minutes of this, he has everything he needs, and he mentions he had some coffee stored at a cashier and asked me to take him to the lady that was keeping it for him.
ME: Oh, I'm sorry sir. I don't actually work here. I just wanted to help you to make sure you could get what you needed and get out quickly so you weren't around so many people for a long time.
After he realizes what happened for the last ten minutes, we try to find the person who was holding onto his coffee, but he decided to just visit a random cashier. After this, I kept looking through the amazing liquor selections that they had i... keep reading on reddit ➡
