Dentist: "Do you floss daily?"
Me: "Do you backup your data daily?"

@fribbledom Dentist: "No, but my teeth won't rot if I don't do a backup."

(BTW I agree that flossing daily is too often.)

@underlap @fribbledom Wait what?? Isn't the usual recommendation to floss 3x per day? (That's my dendists recommendation and that's what I've learned as a kid.) I mean I barely get to 2x per day, but... not even once?

@underlap
Studies say a bunch of stuff; I have empirical experience that people who do floss have better teeth, and I'm one of those who doesn't do it...

dentist: i just want you to have good bites
@fribbledom : same

@fribbledom Don't believe you said it. It would be foolish to say that to someone who can easily cause you a lot of pain., right?

@fribbledom
I actauly rarly floss, mainly as I can't get it between most of my theeth, and the omce i can I can pretty much just use woth my toung

@fribbledom Your dentist shouldn’t need to ask, they should know by looking.

@fribbledom many dentists use practice management software that do in fact backup their files to the cloud every day 😅

@pd @fribbledom Then I'm totally calm. What should happen to personal and health data when there's a backup in the CLOUD?

@fribbledom Me: do you use different passwords for every account?

@fribbledom

Blood drips from my gums
Cruel sadist stabbing with glee
Floss or face their wrath

@MundaneHaiku
Either you're using too thick floss or not flossing regularly
If you floss regularly the bleeding will stop after a few days
@fribbledom

@fribbledom
The dentist certainly has a drawer full of backup teeth...

@fribbledom@mastodon.social only backup i really need is for my hobby OS project.

everything else i'm not really going to care if it gets nuked and i have to start from complete scratch.
