How come when I floss my teeth I always start in the same place - between the 2 front ones? I guess it makes sense as a symmetrical starting point. But how come not the bottom middle? Or left to right?

Assuming you floss and/or have teeth (Timmins joke?) - where's your starting point?

Mr. Farnsworth, the toothless wonder will decline to comment on this one.

I always start with the top teeth, in the back (my left). Always, always. I don't think I'd be capable of starting anywhere else. It would just feel wrong.

I'm the same. Between the two front teeth on top. Then towards both sides and the same on the bottom afterwards. Am I the only one who loves the after-floss feeling? Oh, and it has to be minty floss, not boring no-taste floss... Ok, I think I'll go hide in the bathroom and floss now!

Between the 4-2 and the 4-3,
OR between the 3-2 and the 3-3.
It depends on the day, really - but always the bottom, and always the eye teeth.

...and before the invention of floss tape, life sucked.
Floss tape is awesome.

For that really special feeling, try a waterpik......nothin quite like gettin in there with 1200psi and blasting out the grunge. just fill the waterpik tub with a mix of water and your favorite mouthwash, if you run out,try a little Gin and Tonic. All you have to remember is to keep your mouth shut whilst hosing er down.

Sure beats the hell outa yankin a wax string!

oh and before I forget, there are no rules on where to start when your packin your pick, especially if your high pressure fluid of choice is Gin and Tonic.

Just remember to swallow and enjoy!
