The South African tooth fairy project will be tracing the hazardous cocktail of heavy metals that includes arsenic, uranium, copper and nickel


Copper and nickel?! Holy crap. I probably swallowed about $1.37 when I was a kid...

I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Shopkeeper: I must warn you the doll is cursed.
Homer Simpson: That's bad.
Homer Simpson: But it comes with a free frogurt!
Homer Simpson: That's good.
Shopkeeper: The frogurt is also cursed.
Homer Simpson: That's bad!
Shopkeeper: But it comes with a free choice of toppings!
Homer Simpson: That's good!
Shopkeeper: The toppings contain sodium benzoate.
[Homer looks puzzled.]
Shopkeeper: That's bad.
Homer Simpson: Can I go now?

I have more bad news for you...if you went and gave a bioassay right now, they would probably find uranium in your system.

If I pretend that's not true, maybe it won't be true.

It's been done.

In fact, one of the largest studies in the world was here in the USA, in the 50s and 60s, to measure levels of Strontium-90 in baby teeth. It's one of the major things that led to the near-eradication of above-ground nuclear testing.

From TFA:
"Local doctors have spoken of higher-than-usual cancer rates but there has never been any hard scientific proof.

However, this could all soon change with the help of a bunch of tooth fairies."

I don't know about you all, but I think calling all those scientists fairies is rather pejorative and not very nice. I mean, what do their sexual preferences matter so long as they're good at science?

In other news, Subby, a huge investment bank wrapped in layers and layers of delicious derivatives was bailed out today by the Fed.

Oh, wait, that's a repeat too . . .

Parents keep their kids teeth.

I was snooping through my mothers bathroom once looking for money and found a stash of my baby teeth.

At least I hope parents do, otherwise my mother is just a creeper.
