    I have, in fact, observed that the scene of Gandalf talking Bilbo into leaving the ring behind when he leaves the Shire very much comes across like he's trying to get him to give up smoking crack.

    Correction: actually it was Gimli who was the true Lord Of The Rings, in the three seconds between when he decided to hit it with his axe and when he actually did. He must've felt so confident.

    Y'all, there's like twenty different types of Sensodyne. That's too many types.

    The have a base toothpase "Total" which claims to be complete protection.
    I can accept "Total + Whitening" as whitening isn't protection.
    But they also make (among others) "Total + Gum Health" - how can they add 'gum health' to a toothpaste that is providing total protection - surely gum health is in that by definition?

    I think I buy toothpaste pretty much at random (though I suppose it's entirely possible that there's some subconscious influence from ads), the one opinion I can think of on the matter is that I prefer the ones that are sort of blue and gel-like over the ones that are sort of white and chalky.

    Teeth are dental, gums are medical.
