Relieve a Tooth Ache

Seems to be that everytime you get a toothache the dentist office has already closed or it is the weekend.
I have a great remedy that is full proof.

You will need to gather 100-150 red ants (the big ones)
Boil them. Then strain the water.
Rinse your mouth with the water to cause a numbing effect like lidocaine.

The harvesting of ants

Well that is really interesting, I think that the chemicals that the ants poison carry just may help numb your mouth and help a toothache, although I would personally not want to collect 150 ants and boil them the poor things.
