Today, I broke my tooth nearly in half. On a completely unrelated note, the Jew's Harp is my new least-favorite instrument. FML
Blaphlafagus tells us more :
Kinda awkward that I play the saxophone as my main instrument... Ok story time, so I was sitting there in my Music Theory class just messing around because it was near the end of the period and one of my friends brought this instrument thing called a Jew's Harp or Jaw Harp. They said it plays by vibrating your teeth or something so, not thinking clearly, put it directly against my teeth and pulled the thing back really far and let it loose. I have no clue what I was thinking at the time. Luckily I'll go to the dentist on Monday and get it all nice and pretty again.

This FML seems incredibly trivial aside from the chipped tooth...

While the rational part of me wants to let this slide, I just can't: GOOGLE IS NOT A SOURCE! At best, Google is reference tool that can be used to find sources. Your source is the webpage you found the information on. Okay, I'm done. Carry on with your lives.

That sucks,
I got one of my front teeth broken in half with a sling shot.
One root canal and cap later costed 1500. And then I had to replace that after 4 years when the bone holding the root canals rod was deteriorating. So I got that pulled and am awaiting an implant along with a bone graft within the next year or two.
Of all things to break teeth are pretty expensive. And painful. Not to mention inconvenient. And unsightly.

It just characterizes him as a damned LIAR. Would've been just as funny if he'd said "related" instead of "unrelated". Now I could punch him in the face and break another tooth of his bc lying liar lies. The fiend.

If you make music similar to the band whose logo you are using as a profile picture and somehow manage to incorporate Jewish harp into it, please show me. I am actually quite curious.

I don't think it's actually Jewish, that's what it's called though. It's more commonly called a jaw harp, or it's called a mouth harp. (I'm Jewish and I play the jaw harp)

It's a traditional Jewish instrument. It Had always been a mouth harp to them, but it is/was a Jew harp to everyone else. Not politically correct, so it's slowly being renamed to jaw harp.
