Teeth - the latest shot - and a new word discovered, thanks to Poon

Here is the latest picture of the coketooth.

After nearly 3 days, the tooth is covered in a thick brown layer.  What will be left on Monday?

We discovered a word today thanks to Poon...chyme.  I immediately thought that Poon meant chime, as in hear the bells chime...but no!
Chyme is the word for the semi-liquid contents of your stomach as they are about to pass into the duodenum (the next place in the journey of food as it gets digested).  See here for the online dictionary definition.
