…Your smile isn’t perfect?

Jessica Simpson Smile

Think you have the perfect smile?

Apparently scientists have done a test or two, and come up with the following guidelines:

  1. Bright white should be avoided. The Whiteness of the teeth should match the whites of the eyes.
  2. A smile’s ideal width should be no less than half the width of the face.
  3. Both upper and lower lips should be symmetrical on each side of the mid-line of the face.
  4. The top row of teeth should be dominant while very little should be seen on the bottom row.
  5. All teeth on display should be straight with no visible signs of restoration work.
  6. The teeth should diminish in size from front to back. (Those either side of the central teeth, the laterals, should be 61.8 per cent the size of the bigger teeth. The next teeth along should be 61.8 per cent of the laterals. The width of the central teeth should be 80 per cent of their height.)
  7. Very little should be seen of the gums. (To avoid a horsey smile.)

…It’s TGI Friday: New Theme?

As you can (hopefully) see, went under the knife recently, and is now sporting a new look. Version 1.1 incorporates a lot of the visual changes that I’ve been wanting to make for some time now, with the biggest being the addition of a second sidebar. Overall, there is now more information available on one screen, and I think it makes everything a little easier to look at.

For today’s TGI Friday, I’m asking for some feedback. Do you like the new look? Hate it? Is anything broken? Since I develop on a Mac, I can’t see the site in Internet Explorer, so I’m especially interested to hear how it looks over in IE land (though you should be using Firefox anyways). As always, both positive and negative comments are appreciated.

In addition to the design changes, DYH is now a little wider as well. Unfortunately, this means that some of you might have the edges of the site cut off by your browser, but according to my Mint stat tracker, 87% of you will still be able to view the new size in its full glory, so I had to make a few sacrifices for the greater good (though I do apologize to anyone who now has to side scroll). Remember though, if you subscribe to the RSS Feed, you can see the content however you like (or however your RSS viewer allows you to like), so there is always an alternative solution.

Lastly, in case you were wondering, this site runs off of WordPress, uses K2 as the theme, and sports a custom K2 style (called DYH) that I developed. And coffee. Lots of coffee.
