One day at the Dentist

May 28th 2010

Do you also have that feeling sometimes that your dentist is undertaking all kinds of activities in your mouth that aren't really necessary? Yet, you usually just trust the dentist on its expertise as you realize the prospect of an all organic natural mouth just isn't an viable alternative  – at least, not one your environment will appreciate.

Dentistry is technological by definition, but when to say enough? Perhaps one day when your dentist proposes to implant a Tooth Phone? Although it might be handy to silently listen to your voicemail, chew SMS with your friends and have your insurance company continuously monitor your health levels and food intake – feeling paranoid already? Don't worry, the Tooth implant from Motorola is science fiction (still).

LOL, that tooth looks massive

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
