the stresses and challenges of 2011 are already starting to get to me, but who am i to fear? God is with me.
…you eat mentos and chase it down with diet coke?
…2 ambulances or firetrucks are trying to cross the same intersection at the same time?
…4 cars approach a 4-way stop at the same time?
…you plant a plant in the winter and keep it really warm as if it was summer. would it then blossom in the winter?
…you turn the heat all the way up on one side of the car and the ac up on the other side of the car? (for the cars with separate passenger side temperature controls)
…the 10th dentist also recommends trident?
…they come up with a hand sanitizer that kills 100% of germs?
…diet dr. pepper tastes exactly like regular dr. pepper?
…gps’ start getting angry with you for not taking their planned routes?
you ever wonder about how they can possibly improve certain products? for instance, toothbrushes. how can they possibly remove more plaque than they do now? you would think that if there was a more efficient way to remove plaque, they’d have created it by now. i mean, flexible head, different varying length bristles, ergonomic grip… is there anything else they can possibly do to improve how you brush your teeth?
i mean, people have been brushing their teeth for centuries, millenia even, before we even picked up our first oral-b. you would think that if they could survive on chewed up twigs, our teeth should be shining as bright as the sun with just a regular old toothbrush and some original colgate, not even the whitening kind! but sadly, our teeth seem to be in no better condition than our pre-brush predecessors, which begs the question, “what are these toothbrush research and designers doing?!?!” we should all have flawless teeth. have they run out of ideas for new toothbrushes that actually clean our teeth better that they have to release one with a “new rubber grip”?
toothbrushes. i know. random right? i guess it comes from the fact that i recently switched to an electric toothbrush. one of the features of this toothbrush is that it has an automatic timer. it’ll shut itself off after 2 minutes (the recommended time for most dentists). now i don’t really spend too much time brushing my teeth. much like soap, my goal is to lather the paste on each of my teeth and get the junk out of my mouth as quickly as possible. thinking this new 2-minute timer will revolutionize the way i brush and will, in effect, give me whiter, healthier teeth, i was a little disappointed how after over a month’s use, my teeth seem to be no different in bedazzlement than my *ahem* 30 second brushings.
is this new toothbrush really an improvement over what i was using before? and another thing… i’ve been using whitening toothpaste for quite a while now (pretty much since it came out) and i don’t see my teeth getting any whiter. what’s going on here?!?!
