February 6th - Open Wide...

"...and this won't hurt a bit... well maybe just a little... "

Today was an off-island day again for me to go visit my periodontist in Burlington. Loads of fun. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't gone. Actually it wasn't all that bad. I just have bad gums is all. So they require extra care. After all the scraping and digging, my hygienist let me shoot this photo to show you all how my day went.  1/60th sec. f/3.5 iso 800

And for those of you chomping at the bit to see the Great Twinkie Experiment Part Two, here it is... (If you're new to this blog, take a look at last Friday's post to see what's going on :)

OK, so as promised, here is our next installment of Science In Action! The Great Twinkie Experiment. Our Twinkie has now been out of the wrapper for 7 full days. And it's been sitting out in the open, no cover or tissue or anything at all protecting it. Just it all by itself exposed to the great indoors. The scary thing is, it doesn't look any different. In fact, I'll bet some of you are thinking I used the same photo as last week, but I promise, this is a new photo shot this afternoon. Hmmmm..... maybe I should have put an old piece of bread next to it for comparison. Anyway, that's it for our show today boys and girls. Tune in next week when you'll hear Tim say "Ugh! Even microbes won't eat it!"


  1. Definitely like the angle on the assistant - say, do you remember Marathon Man?

    This one gives me the willies too. Nice job.

  2. Thanks! No I don't think I ever saw Marathon Man... what about it?

  3. Very concerned at lack of change in the Twinkie. It's just not natural!

  4. What about Marathon Man?! Oooh, the dentist drill is an "enhanced" interogation technique...

  5. This is scary,indeed. Thanks for the experiment - a warming to all - twinkies are not all they seem to be.
