    I encourage people to go use the pool (if your at the sheraton) Why? you get nice and clean. There is an awesome view of the city up there and its a really nice pool. No need for chemical warfare then if your squeaky clean.

    And it begins:

    LIST OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T REALLY BATH OR HAVE B.O.:

    Viscountalpha (Uses the pool as a bathtub, you need to get up in that shit with a lather yo!)

    also, I like to bathe in that chlorinated hot tub to remove all the oils off my of skin. I like to think of it as a relaxing purification. also I like to shower once a day (twice if its been rough) Actually turn off the water and lather up. I use that sweedish underarm crystal stuff (because i'm allergic to anti-persperants) and then deodorant.

    I refuse to smell like BO. My sense of smell is too strong for me to put up with my OWN BO.

    So maochan, you sir, can go to hell

    :P

    I have to go with the others and say that my experiance of PAX was really awesome, except for the crusties.

    My buddies and I were waiting for the main hall to open on the first day and there was a serious funk in the area. It didn't take too much looking around to find the crusty culprit.

    Some times its not hard to see how some of the more derogitory sterotypes start about gamers.

    This will be my first year attending PAX and I'm stunned that this is something that even has to be brought up... How bad is it usually? Do I need to train with Tibetan monks to master my senses before coming or...?

    I encourage Right Guard to be a sponsor of PAX in this case... it would be funny to all involved and save the rest of the world... if only for a weekend.

    Yeah. It's mostly a joke; PAX tends to be better than most cons when it comes to BO, but as with ANY large gathering of people, there will be scrubs about.

    Anyone remember back on 07, when Dell was handing out the packs of Soap Strips to everyone that walked by their booth? I still have that thing sitting on my desk next to me at work here.

    "We don't stink at gaming, you shouldn't either." :lol:

    I'm a regular convention-goer in Texas, and none of the things anyone's complaining about seem like hardly anything worth mentioning when compared to the sort of things I'm familiar with at other conventions. If these are the most of our problems then it sounds like I'm going to have a great time.

    My worst experience was an enforcer threatening me with a cattle prod, but at least that was kind of funny. I also thought it was rude of people during the presentations to continue playing their handhelds with the sound on. That's about it really. The smell was pretty bad but what are you going to do, it's an enclosed space with a bajillion people in it.

    Oh and Robert Khoo is incredibly rude. He said I was a dick!

    Glade (or Axe spray, or any other type of strong smelling spray) + BO = Really bad smelling BO mixed with some sort of really bad smelling spray.

    For fuck sake, it's a shower people. 5 minutes twice a day isn't going to ruin your day. Smelling like balls and ass will ruin others day (or at least make it unpleasant to stand in line).

    I didn't notice any BO problems in the WSCTC, but by all that is gamer holy someone needed to hose down the table-top games building.

    It was not a good idea to let nerds (or ANYONE) sweat in a tiny building with no air conditioning for games that last several hours.

    Not to mention, it's been a pretty big complaint in conventions around here about the smell of those kind of sprays (including Febreeze) messing some people up (allergies and all that jazz). Febreeze and like-products got banned 'round these parts.

    SO PLEASE JUST BATHE! D:

    LOL I was kidding anyways, but yeah. I have a couple of friends who'll be coming with me that would probably kill me if I brought something like that. Strong odors give one of my friends migraines and I'm far too empathetic to be that ignorant :).

    For one reason or another this conversation conjured up the thought of that Get Clean song from Rockband2... I'd probably die laughing if someone played that.

    Nah this happens even before they know my name. Yesterday I was waiting at the bus stop, a truck goes by, slams on the brakes and a guy jumps out. Comes up to me and asks if I have/know anywhere to get some herb.

    And I don't mean oregano.

    Last year, an Enforcer took my water bottle. I didn't have the nerve to say anything (what difference would it make, aside from guilt?). Of course, when I say "took", I don't mean "confiscated". I mean that she mistakingly picked it up, opened it, drank from it, and then just kept it.

    But damn was I thirsty.
    Also, who drinks found water?

    My point? That's really all I can complain about.

    So, I'm going to ask a stupid question... what's an enforcer? I'm sure the name give it away, but is it just a PAX name for a security guard?

    Enforcers are the PAX volunteers. We wear black long-sleeved shirts with the PAX logo on front and "ENFORCER" in big friendly letters on the back. Ranging from Lieutenants to Drones to Medics to Security, we keep PAX running as smoothly and safely as possible. If you have a question or problem, don't hesitate to ask an Enforcer. As long as they are wearing their shirt they are on duty and there to help you.

    lol

    ill post the quotes here for those who are unaware where it came from:
    And then there's The Enforcers—but they cost a lot and don't take well to supervision. It is
    rumored that, under their uniforms, they wear T-shirts bearing the unofficial Enforcer coat of arms: a fist
    holding a nightstick, emblazoned with the words SUE ME.
    (not true but funny)
    In the book its mentioned that they dress in all black, and drive black "Enforer mobiles", where the color of the shirt comes from.
    So every few dozen feet there's a large man with erect posture wearing an odd green windbreaker with ENFORCER spelled out across the back. Very conspicuous, which is how they like it.
    But I'm an Enforcer, and it's my job to enforce order.

    Haha, don't worry, I used up my one stupid question for the week instead...
    Hey but if PAX was actually going by the book, shouldn't the enforcers be wearing the proper t-shirts?
    I recall seeing one photo of an enforcer and all he had on his shirt was the word 'enforcer'

    As we all know, PAX is a utopia, a cornucopia of unbridled happiness.

    No inconvenience will arise amongst anyone who attends a convention composed of 85,000 people and god damnthe man who entertains such impure thoughts.

    Just wondering, how many people actually did attend pax last year, and what's the estimate for this year?
