Can't these people learn to keep their gums under cover or have corrective surgery or be put away someplace with others of their kind?
One of my coworkers got hers lasered off. Her teeth looked better but it was painful and she said she "tasted steak" for days. Gross.
They creep you out b/c they remind you of infants.
I know what you mean. Little teeth with outrageously big gums. I want to say "Please shut your mouth cause you are scaring me."

Um, no. Infants are cute. They creep me out because they remind me of the creature from "Aliens."
I used to work very closely with one of these women. She was fairly pretty, but my god, she had GUMS for days with TINY baby teeth.
She was friendly, and had an easy smile, so she was ALWAAAAYS smiling and showing all those gums.
I engineered a way to get her fired. She lost her insurance while she was pregnant.
They don't necessarily have small teeth. It's the way their lips open.
Katie Couric is badly afflicted with this defect, yes?
Apparently so. I have instinctively avoided looking too closely. Until now.
There is a surgery that mostly The Chinese do for this affliction wherein they cut that thing in the middle of the inside of your upper lips and somehow, it allows the lips to come down to cover up more of the gums. I hate gummy smiles.

I don't understand that. How would it work? There's nothing preventing the lips from coming down, right? It's that the smile lifts them up too high.
I'm creed out by gummy worms, at least I was the first time I bought them. They look and feel like actual worms, aside from being neon colored.

I don't have small teeth but I do have a gummy smile. It happens.
Fat, a bent dick, and a gummy smile is no way to go through life, son
Sadly, Sheryl Crow knows the heartbreak of gumismiliosis.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
