    I think that beeswax as a dental filler goes back millennia. About a week ago, I had a dental crown detach. As the underlying tooth had an exposed nerve, I couldn't get the crown back on, so I resorted to the zinc oxide+gypsum dental filler. When I was back in my dentist's office, I asked him about temporary fillers. He basically said that chewing gum, dental wax or even beeswax was fine. He cautioned me not to re-attach a crown using cyanoacrylate glue--he had a patient do that and had to cut the crown off after an infection developed under the crown.

    Yes, but in Atlantis they used composite resin fillings as gold was considered passé.

    If only we hadn't invented dentistry, we might have evolved three sets of teeth by now.

    Both my daughters,as did Farokh Bulsara, have an extra set of teeth, which is problematic for their trumpet playing.

    Each of your daughters has, what, 64 teeth? Puts a new spin on the term "chops".

    Not a full set, just several behind the “usual” set. We’ve debated having them removed, but as they’re both of major symphony orchestra standard, we decided not to risk it.

    Once we get inertial cancellation working, and figure out traversible wormholes, the galaxy will be ours!!!

    I wonder how much of the noise from a freeway/motorway/autobahn would be gone if all traffic were electricified. Is tyre noise really significant?

    In my experience, yes. And tires are killing salmon.

    Much more significant than engine noise these days. And in a bad spectral range. And as Asterix says, runoff from roads is likely killing the coastal ecosystems.

    Hello! Maybe we have just discovered a need for active tyre noise cancelling technology.

    I haven't used my horn for so long I've pretty much forgotten what it is for.

    As long as you can include active rubber chips and bits of metal cancelling technology.

    You should visit Mumbai, they’re always leaning on their horns there.
