    During one labor dispute between the American Ballet Theatre dancers and management, the dancers union was trying to get the company to agree to dry clean the costumes regularly, instead of just at the end of the season.

    Getting nowhere fast with the argument, one day the union reps wheeled in a rack of the dancers' costumes into the meeting room. Management could barely hold their stomachs, and the dancers' request was in the next contract.

    One reason is that we mostly wear tight clothing, and fabric holds stale sweat smells for a long time. We're not walking around in loose clothing, wraps, or barely clothed.

    A Seattle friend once asked me to bring back a few deodorant sticks not available in Vancouver for his Vancouver friend who has to change deodorants every four-six months, because they stop working. It's a struggle for him to find something new that often.

    I wish my kid's marching band had that. When my kids march in 110 degree weather; those uniforms are ripe by the end of the season.

    I also know of someone who is allergic to an ingredient in deodorant. She had a heck of a time finding one that works.

    I've heard the same about meat eaters - that vegetarians can smell them regardless of whether they use deodorant or have rank BO.

    1) very few deodorants will combat the type of sweat you work up when you are working out in the gym

    It's not necessary for deodorants to combat the actual sweat, but the smell. You can be very sweaty and still smell fine. And there's a huge difference between a little sweaty workout smell which a lot of people have and it bothers me not at all, vs. day old reeking nastiness that is so overpowering that people don't want to go near them, which is much fewer and far between, but when you encounter it, its frightening. And its my opinion that it can be controlled, I don't care what anyone says. Sorry if I wasn't specific enough in my original post.

    And I don't think its that my culture smells great and other cultures as a whole don't. It's that the members of any culture who like to walk around and work out "au natural" are offensive.

    I certainly don't smell like roses every second of every day. But I at least do a damned good job of staying neutral. If god forbid I was rushing out of the house and forgot to apply it or put a stick in my bag (which basically never happens- I have deodorant living in my backpack!), you can bet I'll be out to CVS on my lunch break and until then, taking routine trips to the bathroom to clean and dry. You do what you gotta do to be presentable!

    This is my ninth year as a vegetarian, and I don't think meat eaters smell any different.

    Rocky Allen, a DJ for WPLJ in NYC, used to hold call-in contests involving people's actions in the public restrooms at places like Grand Central and Penn Station.

    It went like this:

    A staffer would hang out in a stall within the restroom with either a cell phone or a hidden microphone.

    Two listeners are on the phone with the studio, waiting to play the contest. A little chit-chat while they wait for a pidgeon to walk into the restroom.

    When someone walked into the bathroom, the staffer would quietly describe him/her. (Ex: Corporate desk jockey, shiny shoes, briefcase, glasses and a crew cut)

    Rocky would ask the players to guess whether the pidgeon would WASH or NOT WASH after using the facilities. The staffer would narrate various things like "Looks in the mirror, glances at the paper and .... okay, he's going for the STALL... ooooo.... He's got shiny shoes and he's wearing aftershave at 6pm."

    The staffer would stay and watch, reporting the results afterwards. Sometimes, his or her reaction would be the funniest part of the bit.
    (EWWWW! He not only didn't wash, he picked his nose before he left!)

    The correct guess would win a prize like tickets to a concert or show.

    Bad breath/dirty teeth are the absolute worst for me. I'll take body odor over rancid, crypt breath any day.

    No,it's not cool,but if it were illegal to not wear D.O. it should also be illegal to wear spandex or lycra when you clearly don't have the figure for it.

    I don't. Though, judging from the context, you're using the word "race" when you probably mean "ethnicity" or "nationality".

    Yes, being next to a sweaty stinky person at the gym can be annoying, especially if your workout involves using a piece of equipment for a set amount of time and so does theirs so you're just stuck there together....but IT'S A GYM. People are supposed to get sweaty.

    It really is harder for some people to control BO. I had one family member, like genevieve, who for some time, just had a very hard time controlling her BO. The only unfortunate difference was that it lasted a couple of years. She was just starting puberty and no matter how many times she showered, washed up and reapplied deodorant, she just had BO issues. It really wasn't her fault. Now that she is older, it's no longer a problem. However, I imagine that children are even worse nitpicking bastards about this issue than adults. I can't imagine what she went through in school.

    As for the gym, I don't notice people's smells. I mean sweat stinks and I know some people recycle their gym clothes a few times before washing them so, it doesn't bother me. People are suppose to sweat at the gym. What disgusts me are things that people can control like not washing your hands after using the toilet. That always disgusts me. I never got that. I mean it takes 30 seconds!

    If I were her, I'd be more worried about how the baby looks when it's born. She sure don't need to be worrying about how Jay-Z smells...

    And IMO you are a racist twit who is overly obsessed with hygiene.

    Define "get away with it." I'm pretty sure haribobo hasn't made a lot of new friends from this thread and definitely has been taken to task several times.
