re: teeth 

honestly though.I might have a low-tier gingivitis, and my mom has periodontitis, and I always thought it was hereditary and that I was fucked but it turns out it's not proved to be, and she smoked a lot and was very stressed and these are listed as confirmed causes, so I actually need to take care of my teeth cause I have a shot at not getting periodontitis.

re: teeth 

anyway teeth are dumb. this seems like the worst fucking way to achieve that goal. why would you put two sets of tiny bones inside the larger maxilar bone, and they get renewed but only once when you're very young, and they're only loosely tied to the underlying bone, and they're vulnerable to all sort of shitty infections, and they're not correctly covered by flesh, and fucking bacteria can grow on it? fuck that.

re: teeth 

just make the underlying bone the teeth. and make it so that it grows all the time, has no nerve endings, and it gets used up when you're using it.
fucking evolution I s2g. anyone could have done a better job at this

re: teeth, gross 

@kai I might ask for the teeth back after I get them removed to make a necklace though

re: teeth 

@wxcafe Also too. “We aren’t going to cover care for them under normal insurance. Instead we are going to make it really expensive and horrible to pay for. “

re: teeth 

@wxcafe I remember a Popular Mechanics article where the author reengineered the human body. I remember the knees bent the other way…
