Grooming Secrets of the 17th Century





(Above: But how did he get such a beautiful smile?)

You know what I've been looking for? An instrument that will help me get rid of all that pesky ear wax--AND keep my teeth clean! I thought I might have to search forever until I came across this story yesterday.

Seems divers searching a 385-year-old shipwreck off the Florida Keys have discovered the device of my dreams. The combination toothpick/ear wax spoon is three inches long and made from an once of pure gold. It sank with its well-groomed owner to the bottom of the sea in 1622, when a hurricane destroyed the Spanish galleon Santa Margarita.

Snicker all you want. According to experts, the dainty device (shown below) is worth around $100,000.




PS: Whatever you do, NEVER search for pictures of ear wax. I did, and think I might need to lie down now.

Oh yeah, around the B.C. era when the kings and Queens ruled in the Middle East, they used pigeon dung mixed with color to dye their hair. That's what I heard.

There is a place (in Japan, I think) where you can get your ears cleaned and watch. All of the tool has a built-in camera and various attachments. I saw a video of someone getting their ears cleaned, and it was disgusting.

I have a friend who has a house in the Keys. Unfortunately we visited St. patty's day week.(my friend named Patty's birthday is on that holiday, weird huh?)

Bat dung is in mascara and fish scales are in lipstick.
