Making the world a better place since 1974...



    1) Why would you ever have to wash a wash-cloth? Really, aren't you washing it every time you use it? Now don't get me wrong, I wash mine, but I'm wondering if maybe it's a waste of time to do so

    2) After getting a giant 30 foot sub with cheese on it yesterday I've come to the conclusion that they don't taste much different with cheese as opposed to sans cheese, which adds years to your life, so I'm going cheese-less from here on out.

    3) Now that I know I'm not gonna croak anytime soon I need to ask ti_moniacal to quit emailing me and asking for my stuff. Just cut it out, okay?

    4) J'ever notice that, generally speaking, black women have nicer shaped buttocks than white womens? You white folk need to get with the black folk and see what they're doing cause they're doing it right.

    5) No worky next week. If I can work it out I may try to put together an MFC entry, but that remains to be seen.

    6) Rigatoni for lunch today, along with the wildcard garlic-roll and whatnot.

    7) Well that's it, I thought I had more but alas! I don't. I'm going to work on cleaning up the ol desk for a while cause I hate to come back from vacation to a messy desk.

racist! by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #2 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 06:36:43 AM EST
Indeed, Mrs. Ha and I were watching some shows on BET from Trinidad and Tobago, and let me tell you, there's more boot-ay in those little islands than in all of England, volume-wise. Sadly, the flat-assed team won.

The only problem is that bootylicious chicks tend to run to the thick side, which isn't a problem with me, but the big boobed, pencil waisted and bootylicious figure is a very hard one to attain naturally.

As Clinton would say, "To the rear, march!"


True that by Bob Abooey (4.00 / 1) #4 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 06:50:31 AM EST
They do tend to have more curves, in all areas, but that doesn't detract from the fact that their cabooses are shaped more nicely. Even some of the thicker ones still have the proper shape, even if they're on the large side.

Medeival Bob Takes a Bath by lm (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 06:46:28 AM EST
You know, Bob, I could have sworn that you were young enough to have taken a high school biology class after the discovery of microbes. But since you  appear to be older than I thought you were, here's the scuttlebut on washing towels and washcloths, the ought to be washed with bleach to kill off all the microbial organisms that like to grow in the moist, damp environment of your shower stall after you've bathed. These germs are why all those granola types that use loofa sponges get skin rashes so frequently.

This is also why you should separate your loads of laundry. If you mix your towels and washcloths with your other clothes (especially if you don't use bleach) you've just spread the microbial infestation to all of your clothes. Same goes for underwear. If you wash your underwear with your workshirts, you're going to work with your torso covered in your own butt germs.

Shower actually by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 07:09:04 AM EST
I'm a big proponent of sorting laundry, yes sir.

However, I'm not a big bleach guy. Doesn't that have a sort of tie-die effect on the washables?

This begs the question though, wouldn't the wash-cloth get germs/bacteria in it when it's drying after being washed? Seems like a losing proposition no matter how you look at it.

Bleach is a disinfectant by lm (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 07:20:04 AM EST
When your wash cloth hangs in the bathroom to dry after your shower it has (a) microbes from your sking and (b) microbes from the plume of toilet water droplets that forms everytime you flush and (c) microbes from whatever pleasant fungal/bacteriological growths that call your bathroom home.

But when you've washed your washcloth in bleach, it kills off all of those microbes and your washcloth is steril while it dries unless you take it while still wet and hang it in your bathroom to dry.

If you're worried about bleaching out your towels and wash cloths you can (a) use white towels, (b) use a non-chlorine bleach such as oxyclean, or (c) fill your washer up with water first and give the bleach time to uniformly disperse throughout the water in the washer so that the bleaching is uniform across the load of wash.

If you're going to shoot for (b) make certain that your chlorine-bleach substitute kills germs and doesn't just make things whiter and brighter. Most "color safe" bleaches aren't microbicidal.

Alternatively, you could just boil everything for 20 minutes or buy an autoclave. There's more than one way to skin a microbe.

Nope, anti-bacterial soap doesn't work by lm (2.00 / 0) #16 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 08:00:20 AM EST
Unless you're using medical grade anti-bacterial soap, it only takes you from 95% to 97% germ-free (and that's just on the surface of your skin). It isn't like the bactricidal agents remain on the wet wash cloth to keep killing whatever funk is growing.

On the other hand, using chlorine-bleach in the laundry gives you a 99.9% disinfectant rate.

No, but I would by lm (2.00 / 0) #35 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 08:54:59 AM EST
At present half my socks are black boot socks and the other half are light gray boot socks. I use to have two pairs of white boot socks that were my absolute favorite as they were, by far, the most comfortable. They've long since been worn into oblivion.

But if you're arguing that black and white clash, why is it that the vast majority of formal dinner wear for men consists of a white shirt with a black suit?

You're sadly mistaken my good sir by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #38 Fri Jun 16, 2006 at 09:07:41 AM EST
Let the record state that I'm not disputing that white is a neutral colour, if that's your argument then you're spot on.

I'm simply claiming that from a fashion sense it most certainly clashes in myriad ways in myriad scenarios.

You would no sooner wear white socks with black formal wear than you would hang white bath towels in a bathroom with a maroon shower curtain. Unless you're a NASCAR fan that is.

White socks do not, in and of themselves, clash with black formal attire. What white socks clash with is social expectations of formal attire. But on a purely aesthetic level, there is no clash.
