It's kind of gross when you floss after not having done it for a while. You never know what you'll find buried in your back teeth. I think I found a bit of brontosaurus flesh back in there just now. And the gums tend to bleed a bit as well.
I've heard from a couple of different people lately that there's no evidence to back up the idea that flossing does any good. Which just seems ridiculous, and I think just an excuse for people to justify their laziness in not flossing. It just makes sense, there's spaces between the teeth where food lodges and brushes can't reach, but flossing can. How is that not obvious? A dentist who shall remain unnamed told me that 80% of cavities can be avoided by flossing once a day. I'll take Jin's word over yours, I guess is what I'm saying.
