    Poll: A What-If on Bathing

    Seeing so much negativity on the forums, so I decided to whip up a fun little poll.

    Here is the idea:

    If societal norms were no longer in effect with regards to bathing (such as jobs, mating opportunities, etc), how often would you take baths or showers? How long could you last before your own funk offends even yourself? Let's pretend that EVERYbody is totally fine with how you are, and the choice is yours alone to make. How often would you bathe.

    Yes, the poll is coming, it will actually take time to type it, do NOT make posts urging me to hurry or the Hypnotoad will make you kill yourself.

    Why would you not just wait until the poll was finished to make the thread?

    I'd still shower all the time... they're relaxing, and I like feeling clean

    Hmm...probably wouldn't wash my hair as often, it's really long, but I'd definitely continue to shower in the morning and soak in a bath at night. It's my only time to myself after all and, without regards to personal hygiene, I'd desire it as much as I do now.

    As far as I know, it starts the thread immediately, and THEN takes you to where you create the poll. I haven't seen it done any other way, but lord knows, I don't know everything.

    Anyway, also put in options for male and female. This was done for purely scientific reasons and because it amuses me to do so.

    Personally, I gotta shower at LEAST every other day. My own stink gets to me any longer than that, and that's even during my own sedentary lifestyle, with me not doing much else other than sitting around the house.

    I feel disgusting if I don't shower at least once a day, so I'd probably continue with that.

    I would shower just as much as I do now, every day.

    I shower every day unless I'm at a LAN-Party with friends, and we get sidetracked playing games/watching movies for 20hours a day.
    Or away camping, but then I spend most of that time in the river being fresh-ish.

    I care about my hygine, and grooming, much more than others I know.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    I smell like hot sick ass rotting in a dead corpse on Mercury during a 'literal' shit storm with a hint of vomit for extra seasoning.

    Seriously, shower every day.. EVERY.. DAY!

    I would continue to shower but less frequently. I take a shower everyday when i am working and i did it too when i was at school. But as i am a guy that stay at home most of his free time when i am in holidays and if it is a week i don't exercise or need to go somewhere, just staying at the computer and around the house i stay 3-4 days without a shower. Also if i don't go out in a weekend i only shower friday night and then monday.

    I only start to smell a little bad after 3-4 days and i hate that, so i should shower after 2 days max but in holidays i always delay it one or two more days.

    All this i guess it's because i hate being wet, the bath is relaxing and all but i hate that feeling of being wet for some minutes after a shower.

    So, i guess i would only shower every 3-4 days.

    Interesting. I never considered that people might not like the wet feeling after a bath. I can sort of understand, though. I only hate it on a cold day.

    How often I shower depends on how active I'm being. If I just sit around in my room all day, I usually shower every 2-3 days. If I'm leaving my house for anything other than to grab something from the yard, or feel like changing my cloths, I shower. It'd stay that way no matter what society thought of it.

    I would continue to shower everyday. I enjoy taking showers.

    i picked F, 3-4 days. i have never noticed that i smell if i go a while between baths but if i go more than that then my hair will get really greasy looking and itchy. so thats as far as i think i would make it.

    Once or twice a day. I don't bathe for others, I bathe because I want to
    I HATE waking up and not having showered yet
