Viral TikTok reveals dentists can tell if you’ve been naughty

Viral TikTok reveals dentists can tell if you've been naughty

Well this sucks!

A jaw-dropping TikTok reveals that dentists are able to tell if you’ve recently performed oral sex.

“I get this question a lot,” dentist Huzefa Kapadia said in a now-viral video. 

“Yeah…we know.”

Blowing the minds of nearly 42.7 million TikTok watchers, Kapadia, a dentistry practitioner in Michigan, provided professional lip service about dentists and oral sex after fellow TikToker @CianMcBrien announced the fellatio fun fact in a separate post.  

“Just found out the dentist can find out [whether] someone has given [oral sex] or not,” McBrien captioned a video in early February. He’s seen covering his mouth in shock at the brain-busting claim. 

Kapadia made a follow-up video further explaining how dentists can easily determine the ins and outs of a patient’s oral sex health. 

“Palatal petechiae. This is what it’s called,” he said in a post that’s garnered over 2.5 million views. 

“If you like, let’s say, sucking on a lollipop. One or two here or there, not a big deal,” Kapadia said, swapping out genitalia for candy on a stick as a PG way to get his point across. 

“But let’s say you like to suck on multiple, multiple, multiple, multiple lollipops all the time … you got a problem,” he added. 

In the TikTok, Kapadia superimposes an image of a soft palate — which is located in the upper portion of the back of the mouth — infected with palatal petechiae. 

“As you can see [there is] bruising of the soft palate and irritation right there,” he says.

People who experience petechiae might notice some soreness in the back of their mouth, as well as some light red bruising from the busted blood vessels that happen during suction, according to experts.

Orthodontist Brad Podray lent his voice to the sloppy topic in a viral clip stamped to his own TikTok profile. 

“Sometimes we can tell,” he said of a patient’s oral practices in the video, which boasts a whopping 12.6 million plays to date. 

“It’s usually bruising on the soft palate called petechiae. But unless the patient’s really young or shows signs of abuse, we don’t care.”

Topping off his post, Podray referenced a BMJ Case Reports study entitled, “Fellatio-associated erythema of the soft palate: an incidental finding during a routine dental evaluation.” The 2018 study centers on a 47-year-old man who showed up at the dentist with a lesion on the soft palate of his mouth. 

“We found the lesion to be associated with the practice of fellatio,” the authors concluded before recommending doctors consider oral sex a “potential cause of palatal lesions.”

Experts found that palatal petechiae are fairly uncommon, and it clears up after about a day or so. 

But now that the cat’s out of the bag, mouth specialists all over social media are coming on TikTok to spit knowledge about the taboo truth. 

“Hey, I’m a registered dental hygienist. Let’s talk about this,” TikTok user @MandiMaeee said in a trending post. “So a friend of mine sent me this video and was like, ‘Oh, my God, is this true?’ Yes, it is.”

“To say that I’d be able to tell if you did it three years ago? No,” she continued. “But if you did it recently and you were a little bit aggressive about it … Some individuals might have, um, bruising to the palate, if you know what I’m saying. Soooo yes, we can tell.”

Verified TikToker Carter Gallo had his mother, a dental hygienist, reveal that she’s able to tell how her young female patients spend their weekends. 

“I used to get these high school girls that would come in Monday morning to get their teeth cleaned, and I’d ask them how their weekend was,” Gallo’s mom said off-camera. 

“And they’d go, ‘Oh, it was fine, I didn’t really do too much.’ And you’re looking in their mouth and you’re thinking, ‘Mhmm, you did a lot more than “not too much.” ‘ Yeah, those were the best.”

Hey, Mama knows best!

How do I get back into the workforce after a long gap?

How do I get back into the workforce after a long gap?

I’ve been out of the job market for years, caring for an elderly relative who recently passed. How do I explain this big gap, and how do I make myself relevant? I used to work in a bank, but the job I did is basically obsolete now.

I’m going to tell you what you already know. The job search is hard enough for people with jobs, so transitioning back after being away is that much more difficult. I say this not to discourage you but to prepare you. “More difficult” doesn’t mean “impossible.” You have to prepare differently so that you can overcome the challenge. Your first goal is to just get back into the workforce and not try to pick up where you left off in the same job at the same level. It’s far easier to navigate your way to the job you want over time while you are employed. Make sure your skills are up to date by taking online courses. Stay positive, be persistent, flexible and leverage your contacts. As for explaining the gap, just tell the truth. It has the benefit of being true, and people can relate.

A friend of mine was told she could work remotely full time but has to take less money. Is that lawful?

Oh, the old “asking for a friend” routine. No worries, your secret is safe with me, and it’s not like your question is so unique that your “friends” will know it’s you. Basically, unless your employment is governed by some contract or collective-bargaining agreement, the terms of employment are between you and your employer and subject to change at the discretion of your employer, including compensation, responsibilities and work arrangements. Many employers and employees are considering the trade-offs for working remotely and the savings in the form of reduced office space and commuting expenses, respectively. For many employees, it includes more flexibility, too. You can choose to accept the new arrangements, or decline and continue with your current ones. If your employer isn’t offering you an option and you decline, you should be eligible for whatever layoff benefits the company provides, as well as unemployment benefits. I hope this works out for your “friend.”

Bill Gates said to be growing potatoes for McDonald's fries

Next time you savor a McDonald’s french fry, remember to thank Bill Gates for the tasty spud.

As reported in The Post, the soon-to-be single computer magnate happens to own more farmland than anyone else in the United States. Known for loving fast food — although his burger of choice comes from the Washington-based chainlet Burgermaster — Gates, according to NBC News, grows potatoes for McDonald’s in fields so vast they can be scoped from outer space.

Although Gates has focused his energies on saving our climate, he has made clear that the tater patches are strictly money-making operations.

“My investment group chose to do this,” stated Farmer Bill during an AMA on Reddit. “It is not connected to climate.”

Considering that Gates is said to own 269,000 acres of fertile land in 18 states, it’s easy to imagine him keeping track of it all on some souped-up series of spreadsheets. If so, gangs of divorce lawyers — including some who worked on the Jeff Bezos bust-up — have surely been scrutinizing the potato haul. Gates, the fourth-richest person in the world, married his impending ex, Melinda, without a prenuptial agreement, so they will be splitting property via a so-called “separation contract.”

No word on whether or not she will soon reign as McDonald’s potato queen.

Honeybee worker can produce millions of identical clones, study shows

Honeybee worker can produce millions of identical clones, study shows

A South African subspecies of the honeybee is reportedly able to produce millions of clones of itself. 

According to new research published in the journal Current Biology and Proceedings of the Royal Society B, one such insect – known as the Cape honeybee or Apis mellifera capensis– has managed to do so many times over the past 30 years. 

It’s a process called thelytokous parthenogenesis, which a group of international scientists said is akin to the “virgin birth of a female.” 

While asexual reproduction is fairly common, genetically identical offspring is not. 

The exchange of genetic material between different organisms, or “recombination,” normally leads to the production of offspring with combinations of different traits.

If there even is only one parent, New Scientist noted, offspring born from thelytokous parthenogenesis will still be born with a slightly different genetic makeup.

And yet, the worker Cape honeybee has reportedly found a way to reduce recombination and remain genetically healthy, whereas asexual reproduction has been lethal in honeybees before, resulting in inbred larvae that don’t survive. 

“For workers, it is important to reduce the frequency of recombination so as to not produce offspring that are homozygous.”

In order to learn more, the paper’s authors “experimentally manipulated” Cape workers and Cape queens to reproduce thelytokously.

“The two female castes of the Cape honeybee, Apis mellifera capensis, differ in their mode of reproduction. While workers always reproduce thelytokously, queens always mate and reproduce sexually,” the researchers explained in the paper’s abstract.

Performing fieldwork at South Africa’s Plant Protection Research Institute in Stellenbosch, the team instrumentally inseminated a queen with the semen of a single male and then introduced a brood comb holding several hundred eggs laid by the queen into a colony to be reared. 

Queens were made to reproduce asexually using what researchers said amounted to a “chastity belt.”

“When the queens were 5 days post eclosion we constrained them in an artificial insemination apparatus [37] without narcosis. We then glued a 5 mm piece of surgical tape (Micropore, 3M, Minnesota) over the sting chamber using nail varnish,” the paper explained. 

The researchers monitored the queens, confirming the chastity belts were intact after each flight around the colony and, eventually, compared asexually reproduced larvae of the queen to those of the workers.

“We monitored the queens closely for the next two weeks, to determine if and when oviposition had commenced. We collected larvae as soon as they appeared into ethanol,” the researchers wrote.

“Not all queens flew, not all returned from mating flights, and not all laid. In the end, we were able to harvest one queen and 25 of her larval progeny into ethanol.”

The group also genotyped four workers and 63 of their larvae.

Ultimately, the authors found that the queen showed levels of genetic recombination 100 times more than seen in the cloned offspring of the worker bees.

“Using a combination of microsatellite genotyping and whole-genome sequencing we find that a reduction in recombination is confined to workers only,” the abstract concluded.
