There’s a New Toothbrush That Cleans Your Teeth in 10 Seconds

This is like the ultimate toothbrush for anyone who’s LAZY.  Not only does it brush your teeth for you . . . not only does it brush them in record time . . . but you don’t even need to move your arm.

There’s a product called Amabrush on Kickstarter right now, and it’s a new kind of toothbrush that cleans your teeth perfectly in 10 seconds flat.

It looks more like a mouthguard than a toothbrush that you’re used to.  You put it in your mouth, press a button, and it simultaneously scrubs all of your teeth with just the right amount of toothpaste.

If you want one, you can pre-order it on Kickstarter by pledging $90, plus you’ll have to pay $23 in international shipping because they’re coming from Europe . . . and they’re not scheduled to ship until December.

But isn’t it worth it not to have to brush your own teeth anymore?

Handcuffed Man Proposes During Felony Arrest

Cops in Muskogee, Oklahoma, say they arrested 35-year-old Brandon Thompson July 4 on six felony warrants and were leading him to a waiting police car when he made an unusual request.

“I asked the officer if I could propose,” Thompson later told CNN. “The officer said, ‘You want to do what?’ and I said, ‘I want to propose to her.’”

The arresting officers ― who cuffed Thompson while he was celebrating not only Independence Day, but also his birthday ― took pity on him.

In police body camera footage of the encounter, Thompson can be heard telling his girlfriend, Leandria Keith, “I love you. Will you be my wife, please?”

When Keith agrees, an officer can be seen switching Thompson’s handcuffs from the back to the front so he can place the engagement ring on her finger.

The Muskogee Police Department posted video of the proposal on its Facebook page. As of Monday, it’s been viewed more than 12,000 times.

While the couple now appear to have “for better or worse” down pat, it’s yet to be seen if marriage is the only institution in their immediate future.

According to KOTV News, the groom-to-be was taken to the county jail to face multiple charges, including possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a controlled substance and failure to appear in court.

WTVD News reported that Thompson’s new fiancee bailed him out the day after his arrest.

Muskogee police officer Lincoln Anderson said he hopes Thompson will turn his life around.

“Hopefully it will help him make the choices it will take to support his future wife and his kids,” Anderson told CNN. “And if by letting him take a moment before going to jail to do what he did, then we did our jobs.”

Science Just Proved That Drinking Coffee Makes You Live Longer


 I’m not sure anyone needs ANOTHER reason to drink coffee . . . our current reason of “it’s the only thing making me a functional member of society and without it I’d murder you all” seems strong enough.  But here you go anyway.

According to two new studies that were just published in the “Annals of Internal Medicine” journal, people who drink coffee LIVE LONGER.

A study out of the University of Southern California looked at 185,000 Americans over 16 years, and found that people who regularly drank coffee had lower death rates . . . especially people who drank at least four cups a day.

And the other study, out of Europe, looked at 520,000 people in 16 countries over 16 years, and found the exact same thing.

The researchers believe it’s all thanks to the antioxidants in coffee, not even the caffeine . . . because even decaf drinkers lived longer than other people.

So can we say for SURE that coffee is good for you?  A professor at Johns Hopkins University says he’s not willing to go THAT far yet, but, quote, “the basic idea is that we are increasingly reassured that coffee is not harmful.”
