For what it’s worth, there’s a pun at work in the Chinese that can’t be rendered easily in English: The word translated as “settle down” (actually better as “to live,” here, “take up residence” IMHO) is a homophone of the word for dental caries. Both are pronounced zhù, the former written with the character 住 and the latter with 蛀.

What sounds like “Don’t let germs settle down” is written so that it reads “Don’t let germs make a cavity.”

Neat, huh?

Origin of image. also the image was used in a Luxology Modo advert in which it was made.

More trypophobia?

Reminds me of that simpsons episode…


Alright. They won. I just had to brush my teeth.

You make it sound like making that as a 3d cgi model would be easy?

Probably easier than taking a tooth, carving and photographing it.

Also, am I the only one for whom the link delivers a page without content? I’d love to see bigger and more (if there are any) images.

Funny, I was thinking of a Theodore Sturgeon short story.

This is just what I needed, after spending yesterday morning having new crowns put in. I had already remembered this.

This is what happens if you let your dentist play with the drill too long

Huh, even clevererer.

Also, for some reason I’m reminded of some of the more architectural 3D fractal renders I’ve seen…
