How To Treat Gingivitis

Hello everyone! Long time no blog! I’ve been damn busy lately. Anyway, today I will be making a post on how t \o treat gingivitis. Seriously, you don’t want this to progress to a point where you lose your goddamn teeth.

Step 1: Brush your teeth.

This seems straightforward enough but, you need to change to a soft bristle toothbrush, switch to Tartar control toothpaste and be gentle with your gums when you brush. At this point you want to switch to the “three-three” rule. Brush for three minutes, three times a day.

 

Step 2: Use mouthwash

Again, this seems straightforward enough but, you need to switch to ACT Fluoride Alcohol-free Anti-Cavity mouthwash. The alcohol in Listerine will irritate your gums, so it needs to be alcohol-free. Also I don’t care if fluoride lowers your IQ, your IQ was low enough when you decided to skip brushing your teeth. Antibacterial mouthwash that doesn’t contain a lot of alcohol, like the one recommended above, will be ideal for killing and getting rid of bacteria.

 

Step 3: Floss

If you can’t floss because of braces or whatever, swirl water and/or the mouthwash I recommended above, around in your mouth. Get the water and/or mouthwash in between your gums.

Behold, the six types of atheists

For once CNN posts something good.

CNN Belief Blog

By Dan Merica, CNN

(CNN) — How many ways are there to disbelieve in God?

At least six, according to a new study.

Two researchers at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga found that atheists and agnostics run the range from vocally anti-religious activists to nonbelievers who still observe some religious traditions.

“The main observation is that nonbelief is an ontologically diverse community,” write doctoral student Christopher Silver and undergraduate student Thomas Coleman.

“These categories are a first stab at this,” Silver told the website Raw Story. “In 30 years, we may be looking at a typology of 32 types.”

Silver and Coleman derived their six types of nonbelievers from 59 interviews. We’re pretty sure we’ve spotted all six in our comments section.

Getting our terms clear

Some people in the religious (and some in the agnostic) community have been going on a crusade to redefine atheism from “a lack of belief in god/s” to “the belief that no god/s exist”. This is fallacious from the start because:

1) Atheism comes from the Greek words “a”-without and “theos”-god. Without god. While some atheists do believe that there is no god, it is not a requirement to do so. In order to be without god, you just need to not believe in god/s.

2) It’s a lot easier to pretend that your opponents beliefs are faith-based and insupportable than facing up to the burden of proof that you give yourself when you make claims.

But for the sake of argument let’s just say that officially atheism is “the belief that no god/s exist”. If two people, one believing no god/s exist and the other being unconvinced were to debunk every theistic claim put to them, it really wouldn’t matter what their beliefs were. It would just show that theistic claims consistently collapse under critical scrutiny, have no evidence backing them up and are not backed up by logic or evidence. Theists who fixate on strong atheists are really just trying to distract attention from their real problem: that their claims have no valid foundation.

My honest opinion of 9/11

Let’s move on. We were attacked 12 years ago. It’s pathetic that we are still milking this tragedy for political gain. The only thing we can do to prevent another 9/11 is to simply stop having gunboat diplomacy around the world. And as we exit the era of militarism, we should enter an era of trade and commerce.

How do to laundry for boarding school and college students

Hello people. This will be one of my “fun” posts.

Today I’m going to teach you how to do laundry. I will admit this: before boarding school, I never did a load of laundry. Laundry is incredibly simple actually. When I figured out it was simple I was just shocked that it was that easy.

Step 1: Separate lights and darks. The only exception to this rule is underwear and sports gear.

Step 2: Follow washing machine’s instructions on how to use detergent or bleach.

Step 3: Insert clothing.

Step 4: Press start. If your school requires coins (like mine) insert coins first, then press start.

Step 5: Take washed clothing out of washer and put into dryer. 

Step 6: Press Start. If your school requires coins (like mine) insert coins first, then press start.

Step 7: Take clothing out of dryer and go back to dorm.

You’re done! And I can’t stress this enough: take your clothes out when you are done. You do not want to be the dick who leaves their clothing in the washer or dryer.

Syria. What a mess.

Hello everyone. Sorry I haven’t been posting. American Football practice and boarding school takes up a LOT of time. Anyway, I’m going to talk about Syria. As we all know Syria is in the middle of a civil war. On one side you have President Assad, Russia and Iran. On the other side you have the rebels who want to oust Assad, the rebels also happen to have ties with Islamists, such as Al-Qaeda. It’s really complicated and it is over my head.

We really shouldn’t intervene. Syria poses no risk to US National Security and there is no clear ally. It’s not your neat and clean Disney, good guy vs. bad guy story. If we do intervene and miraculously fix everything; Al-Qaeda, Russia, Iran and Loyalists from the current regime will NOT be happy. Terrorist attacks on US soil will follow our actions in Syria. Remember Afghanistan in the 1980s? Remember how well intervening worked out then? Getting involved in Middle-East conflicts bites us in the ass eventually. So we really shouldn’t intervene. Unless of course we send congress to Syria: http://www.theonion.com/articles/poll-majority-of-americans-approve-of-sending-cong,33752/

Ciao!

Dear Agnostics

Dear Agnostic People Across The World,

You are awesome people. You are kind and loving people. You also think critically (most of the time). I will give you credit, you actually admit you don’t know.

But I digress, you do not hold a valid theological position. You answer the epistemological question which is “Do we know?” (or “Can we know?”). You can not use “I don’t know” as a theological answer. I’m not good at articulating my thoughts (yet strangely I have a blog) so, I will leave you all to look at this image:

A Libertarian View of the Summer

Well I start 9th grade soon and I have a review of the summer. It sucked for the most part.

It sucked in some ways because of the NSA scandal. Do you want the bad news or the shitty news first? The bad news is that the NSA is spying on us and it’s legal. The shitty news is, is that this won’t even taint Obama’s legacy. Like Reagan, Obama’s terms will be white-washed and only those who dig deep enough will find out what he really was.

The only good thing that happened was that the Supreme Court struck down DOMA and Prop 8. Same-sex couples now get federal benefits! It would be much better if government could just get the fuck out of marriage entirely. Now, apologists for Prop 8 give this state’s rights crap. State’s rights doesn’t give power to the states to deny rights to people. It only serves the purpose to let state’s run their own affairs (ie. make their own laws). This is a victory for me in two ways. First, the government is getting smaller on the issue of gay marriage. Secondly, religion has finally been kicked out the door on this issue. Christianity and other religions no longer get to discriminate against people simply because, they don’t like them.

Summer 2013 was not a libertarian dream but, there are still some good things to remember from it.
