Clenching one's jaw and grinding the teeth back and forth across eachother - usually a symptom of strong, negative emotion, such as rage or frustration. This is very bad for you! Not only does it wear down the enamel on your teeth and loosen them - it is also detrimental to the bone and muscle structures in your face!

I would suggest the following alternative activities:

  • Utter a devestatingly clever epitaph
  • Meditate. Embrace zen calmness.
  • Initiate a bitch session with your best buddy
  • Solve the problem that inspires this activity
  • Node!
  • Consume massive quantities of alcohol (employ this alternative with prudence)
