Last night, ladies and gentleman, I used the last piece from a roll of dental floss. 

As something that I have worked diligently toward for more than 30 years, I can say that I do not take this type of achievement lightly. Dream big, work hard, stay focused, and don't let critics get you down. You can achieve anything you want - I'm living proof.

I did not know there was an end to dental floss.

I run out regularly. Once you see the crap that gets pulled out by the floss, mearly brushing feels gross. And for those who say flossing hurts, HARDEN THE BERK UP.

I use flossers. My teeth are tight, and I'm loaded. So sue me.

A bag of 160 lasts me about 5 months. Totally worth it.

My dad likes the flossers too and keeps trying to give them to me (he rinses them and reuses them each a few times so the bag lasts forever). I swear its faster and easier to do it the old fashioned way.

I wonder if that is a requirement of your residency.

There should be an award or a merit badge for getting to the bottom of a tube of Chap Stik too.

I've always wanted a merit badge for finishing a can of antisieze. . Well, at least finishing it so that the brush won't pick up anything else useful.

One of my greatest achievements as a father is getting all of my kids to floss every day. I buy floss constantly.

Dentist says you should still floss if you use a waterpik. Apparently it gets debris out but doesn't do everything that floss does for your gum health.

My kid goes through that stuff like it was candy.  I need to find a place that sells it by the case.

And I don't understand the OP.  I buy my floss at Costco by the six-pack.  Use two to three feet of it every night.  Each pack is 40 meters, so that has me finishing one about every couple months, give or take.

I found a private label place that makes lip balm ('AKA: Chap Stick Like Products').  They will put any label you want on it and sell you a case of it.  It really wasn't very expensive.  Cheaper than buying at the store.  I was thinking of getting some 'Dr.Hess' branded Lip  Balm.

Just for fun I googled "private label lip balm by the case" and I am amazed at the number of hits.
