Today, my father told me he hasn't brushed his teeth for 30 years: he just wipes them with paper towels. I don't know whether to be horribly disgusted, or horribly jealous that he has never gotten a cavity. FML

Because it's unhygienic, I really doubt it gets the job done.
This FML reminds me of the other FML of the grandma that never wiped her butt after defecating and let "nature handle things"

It's possible that he feels brushing hurts his gums too much, or some other problem he specifically has with brushing rather than an issue with how long it takes

No, it only takes like five seconds. That's what I do after lunch at work and when I stay at someone else's place unexpectedly and didn't bring a toothbrush. I wouldn't recommend it as a complete substitute for brushing, but it's actually pretty effective in a pinch, especially if your host has floss.

I feel sorry for the people who speak to him. The smell of bacteria would be so overwhelming. Please buy this man a mouthwash if he refuses to brush omg

If you never brush your teeth then your body does all the work and does what it's meant to do. Think of it like wearing an ankle brace. If you wear an ankle brace for a year your body will get used to having that support and not having to do anything so when you take the brace off your ankle will be super weak. Same concept for everything.

Well, by wiping his teeth, he's actually removing most of the bacteria. When you brush your teeth, you don't kill any bacteria, just remove them from the surface. In a way, he is doing the same thing, just not nearly as thorough as brushing your teeth. Although I do agree, that is pretty nasty.
