Dental Flossing Could Be Going The Way Of The Dodo. Mouthwash Alone Might Be Adequate.

I had never flossed, let alone heard of it, until I was in the U.S. of A. and even then I think flossing only entered my life in the mid-1990s.

That is why I thought it was very funny that my young, 30ish, Sikh dentist wanted to know whether I had been flossing all my life. I came home and checked the history of flossing and on my next visit, 6 months, later put him right. He was very gracious.

I no longer floss per se. Instead I use plastic picks and go through quite few. My teeth and gums (for a man of my age) are ‘OK’, the only real problem being the staining due to my vast consumption of red wine, coffee and black tea. So other than bi-yearly cleanings dentist do not make any money from me — to their chagrin.

This take on flossing is interesting and will indubitably please many. I am, yet again, well covered. I have a ‘thing’ about using mouthwash. I gargle, vigorously, with mouthwash at least twice a day — with two different mouthwashes each time! That means I use mouthwash 4 times a day — the alternate mouthwash I use being diluted peroxide. I am a great believer in the magical properties of peroxide. I have, at any time, two large brown bottles under my sink. I use it for all sorts of things.

Anywho … This looked interesting and as such I wanted to share it with you.

A lead story on October 22, 2015 ‘martketwatch.com’. Click to access original.

I was surprised, if not outright shocked, to see this story in ‘MarketWatch‘.

No, no, I was not at surprised at ALL, at ALL, that Jim had got it wrong. Come on Jim has been a total joke for nearly a decade.

PLEASE tell me that you do not view him as anything more than an entertainer — a comedian at that. That has been his role at CNBC, ‘Mad Money‘ including, for close onto a decade. Nobody who is seriously into the market pays any blind bit of notice as to what Cramer says — other than maybe to do the exact OPPOSITE of what he recommends.

There was a time, over 10 years ago, when Cramer actually knew what he was talking about. He helped me make some money. I used to watch (or tape) ‘Mad Money’ every day and listen to him whenever I could. He got me into Caterpillar (CAT) c. 2003 and I then extrapolated that into Cummins. Yes, I made some decent money. Then I started to notice that Jim was getting things BADLY wrong with increasing regularity.

His advice, on air, not to buy MasterCard was the final straw for me. I haven’t listened to anything he has said since. And I am extremely THANKFUL. Jim could NOT beat a chimpanzee when it comes to picking stocks now. He has totally lost it. Read the article below.

And he rarely admits to getting it wrong.

So PLEASE treat Jim Cramer for what he is — a serious comedian.
