The best practical advice I've ever been given is this: Floss only the teeth you want to keep.

While not a habitual flosser by any means, I remember this refrain passed on to me by a dentist. I'm curious, what's the best practical advice you've ever been given?

From Dad: "Every gun is loaded." and "Do not point at anything you do not plan to shoot."

From Mom: "Drive with your car doors locked in the city and unlocked on the highway. You don't want people getting IN in an urban setting, but you want them to be able to get YOU OUT in an interstate accident."
