Today’s random thought

Have you ever noticed that everyone in post-apocalyptic movies and TV shows has perfectly white teeth? The world has ended, so how the hell are these people brushing their teeth on a regular basis?


One thought on “Today’s random thought

  1. In Richard Matheson’s excellent I Am Legend, which I read in high school when it was first published in 1954, the protagonist (the sole normal human after everyone else has become vampires) spends a lot of time on dental care: brushing and flossing. He is explicit about his reasons: as a sole survivor, he would have serious problems if his teeth went bad.
