Flickr user toothpastery appears hell-bent on documenting every toothbrushing moment in her life. The toothpastery Flickr stream consists of two daily photos of a toothbrush loaded with a strip of toothpaste, with meticulous notes about the brand of paste used that day ("Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste with Baking Soda & Essential Oil of Fennel"). This is clearly a magnificent obsession.

These images are methodically captured, lovingly hand-tagged and uploaded daily. This is more boring for me than it is for you," and "These images are not licensed though Creative Commons for a damn good reason."

This unlocking process […]
With our smartphones serving as the vital tether that links us to the rest of our lives, it’s no wonder how low batteries and power emergencies can occasionally feel like a life-and-death situation. I mean, it’s usually not, of course…but darned if it doesn’t feel that way when your indicator is showing only 5 percent […]
