Well, it’s summer and it’s hot. And humid. I hate hot and humid. I hate summer.
Another City Decide Tooth Decay And Mouth Pain Is Great
A couple weeks ago I talked about two neighboring towns in Australia. One fluoridates its water, one does not. The town that does not fluoridate its water has a far higher occurrence of tooth decay, fillings, and extractions.
Another city, this one in Canada, has chosen to give into fear of fluoride and their children are suffering for it. This one is Calgary.
Shame on you, Calgary.
Hit Parade Is A Great Podcast
I listen to several podcasts and Slate’s Hit Parade hosted by Chris Molanphy is one of my favorites. Its a music history podcast that is really engaging and fascinating. It is excellent and the latest episode is right in my musical wheelhouse.
My Son’s Baby Teeth
My wife and I did what we thought was a good job brushing and flossing our son’s teeth when he was a toddler, but some brown stains on his front teeth. We asked his doctor about those stains and found out we were doing something wrong.
Lots of caps and fillings fixed him up, but we felt as though we’d let him down.
A Dimland Radio Argh!
It’s a minor Argh, but it still gets under my skin. Or should I say it’s a pain in the neck?
Younger folks seem to not realize that when a person has been killed by hanging we say they have been hanged, not hung. I hear it said incorrectly on virtually every episode of The Dollop podcast.
Astrology IS Just Damn Silly
This could also be an Argh, but it’s just so ridiculous. It’s nearly as silly as believing the earth is flat to believe the orbit of the planets in our solar system could have any affect on us. And not just the orbit, but they way the orbit appears to move has an affect.
At times, six of the other planets in our solar system and Pluto appear to move in the opposite direction of their respective orbits. It’s called retrograde. But it only looks that way from earth, because the earth is also orbiting the sun.
I read an article warning us of a bumpy summer becomes of planets in retrograde. It’s just plain silly.
Three Cool Things
3) This YouTube video showing some of the best crowd reactions at baseball games. Most moments are shown twice. Once from the TV coverage, once from amateur video. Most are very cool, except the last moment when the crowd was cheering the death of Osama bin Laden.
2) A Facebook friend brought the Bible Word Locator site to my attention. It’s loads of fun.
1) And there’s Hot Dog Water! It claims to be a health product with fantastic benefits. But that’s not what’s cool about it. It’s actually a product meant to demonstrate the too good to be true claims of typical “snake oil” products.
