also, noticed that the troll assumed that when I was talking about wire weaving. that the troll assumed that Vikings are a Native American tribe. the troll does not realize that Vikings were EUROPEANS. and that the wire weaving was a form of jewelry they made for warriors to wear. it is NOT basket weaving like the troll assumes it is.

plus I've pointed out several times that my ancestry is German/English/Irish. so the Viking Wire Weaving is part of my ancestry. since my German ancestors lived not far from the coastline of the Baltic Sea of the lands that used to belong to Germany.

centuries. found in many graves and treasure hoards, for many uses: necklaces, chains for decoration,bracelets, edging for clothing as well as trim. This particular style is not as common as the twisted wire torques that are more often thought of today in regards to Viking or Norse jewelry.

and it looks like the troll struck out again by him assuming things about me. one would think the troll would have learned by now. but as normal, he failed to learn that one does not assume things about someone else.
.
as well as the troll obviously believes stereotyping about folks. including the one that Hitler was supposedly German. nope, he was Austrian
.
he does not realize that folks of Germanic ancestry comprises the largest group in America here. this includes anyone who claims English ancestry. since the Anglos, Saxons, & Jute tribes invaded Great Britain about the 5th century. and pretty much all of us do not have that mustache. even after going thru menopause.
.
and if he is claiming Roman/Italian ancestry from the looks of his handle. the troll needs to remember that Germans were used as bodyguards to the Roman Emperors. and they most likely married. and if he has ancestors that lived in Rome. he might himself have German ancestry.
.
I do not drink alcohol, since I found out shortly after chemo that after five sips. I end up losing the contents of my stomach.
.
as for bad teeth not so. I take care of my teeth. I want them to be in my mouth at least 40-50 years from now when I pass on.
.
many smokers on the other hand have bad teeth from smoking. as well as other mouth problems.
.
http://smoking.ygoy.com/smoking-and-teeth/ Most people argue that genetic predisposition causes dental problems. In reality, smoking also can significantly affect your teeth.
.
http://dentalcarematters.com/smoking-effects-... Smoking tobacco is one of the risk factors in developing gum diseases: inflammation and infection of the gums and bones that hold the teeth in position. Some of the major harmful side effects of smoking are:
.
plus smoking is a major factor for many with mouth cancer.

agreed.
.
especially with things that not only harm the user. but also can harm others if the user is close enough while using something. like cigarettes, drugs, booze, etc... folks have the right to harm themselves. but they do NOT have the right to harm others.
