Everything You Know About Your Personal Hygiene Is Wrong

Everything You Know About Your Personal Hygiene Is Wrong

What cleaner company paid for this ridiculousness passed as an article?”

“We were poor - we used an outhouse with sears for toilet tissue, we went barefoot. Picked food up and ate it.

Healthier than most kids washed and rinsed every single minute. None of us have alergies or asthma, both parents smoked in a small house. We played outside until dark even in the winter. We haven't developed lung cancer (all are in our 70s).

I think scrubbing, worrying, sanitizing causes a lot more harm than good.

Stress from an office full of bigots and loudmouths causes more heart attacks than high blood pressure. In fact, I think it causes blood pressure to be high.

Relax, live, love, everything, anything in moderation. Stay away from haters.”

“Perhaps the full quote from the article this author was referencing would help clarify:

"Whoever said slow and steady wins the race didn’t have a full-time job, a slowing metabolism, and an endless to-do list. When it comes to staying in shape on a tight schedule, there’s no fairy tale solution, but there might just be a practical one: interval training."

Put it in that perspective and it does make sense. It wouldn't be time-efficient to multiply a PR distance x 10.”

“Thanks for the quote, btw.
The bullet suggestion seems more for "racing to race a PR" and not "racing to fitness". ”

duskdemon on Sep 19, 2013 at 17:25:27

“I agree, that wouldn't be efficient. The quote you reference justifies my observation that it is condescending. I have a full-time, physical job, and I find the time to "train" for fitness. Part of includes long runs (with some interval training) at a steady pace.
So the direct implication here is that "slow and steady" training sessions are for those that: don't have a job, have high metabolisms, and don't have a to-do list.
I mean, truly there is confusion here since slow metabolism don't recover very well from harsher interval training.”

“How do you conclude that from my comment?  Is financial responsibility exclusively a "right wing lemming" ability?

Oddly enough I line up more with the left than the right, but that doesn't matter when you just want to jump to conclusions and paint people in corners regardless of facts.  Get past your political bigotry and learn to communicate with people.”

“"The notion that flipping burgers does not deserve a living wage is just stupid."

Hey genius, you do realize that is a straw man argument?

I worked full time while going to college part time.  My parents couldn't afford it and I didn't want to go into debt.  I got low-paying fast food jobs.  I made it work.  You know why?

Priorities.

How many people in the pictures are using iPhones?  Wearing expensive clothes?  Etc.

I had a flip phone and frequented the thrift store, only buying work clothes at low-end big box stores.

I made it without government handouts.  It required prioritizing and hard work.  I didn't sit around whining about my situation and complaining that the evil corporations are preventing me from succeeding.”

“Anyone who finishes an argument with "really" automatically loses respect.

The biggest hole to punch in your logic is that you assume the government (not a part of capitalism, by the way) is going to decrease handouts.  The second biggest is your assumption that users who have grown dependent on those handouts are going to give them up.”

“Simple economics.

Raise everyone's pay -> Raise prices or lose positions

Raise prices -> Lose customers

Lose customers -> Lose positions

But then again, I took Economics 101 in college. Can the same be said about the majority of strikers?”

“Hey genius, you do realize that the taxpayers are subsidizing these low wages through the huge cost of safety net programs (such as SNAP, etc).

The reality of the US cost of living is that there has to be a minimum wage that effectively makes it a "living wage". The notion that flipping burgers does not deserve a living wage is just stupid. Any company could whine about profits and justify lowering salaries for any worker (skilled or not). At some point corporate responsibility towards community must also be looked at, because taxpayers cannot support low wage workers anymore.”
