    I agree Pony. But people need to get their chemicals in check or stop tearing down happiness. We have cryfests in here all the time and that's fine but Good God forbid you have any happy discussion outside of an awful Joss Whedon show thread.

    well, acknowledging you even have a problem and actively choosing to try to ameliorate is the most important step to fixing it

    example: i sometimes get depressive episodes. bad ones. black, horrible pits of despair where i am just a total asshole to people around me and i am impossible to make happy and if i'm not crying i am being a tremendous dick to others to bring them down.

    i don't have control over when this happens. it is a chemical problem. my life has shitty parts but even it's shittiest parts don't excuse that behavior.

    but, i can acknowledge when this happens and recognize it and do my best to minimize it. sometimes that means just outright telling people "i am in a shitty mood and i am going to stay home and play video games and read, i don't feel like going out"

    or i will go out, but with friends i know who are down with that and can handle me when i'm blue and pissy

    i know how my shit works and how to deal, to the best extent i can

    The Axe bad hair crisis bullshit makes me want to choke a bitch.

    Yeah, Axe is bullshit. It's totally fucked up that their entire marketing platform is designed to play on the insecurities of teenage boys. I don't really understand how a society can accept behavior that is little other than an assault on the minds of some of it's most vulnerable members.

    I've never really gotten the point of relative happiness. It's like saying you should eat your peas because people in china are hungry.

    I'm all like...I...I guess?

    No it's more like "stop crying about having to eat peas because people in China are hungry and also their government is a bunch of assholes".

    So? If person X has a shitty life, and person A has a shittier life, that doesn't make person Xs life not shitty.


    I believe that people probably take this idea too far and apply it to situations like "your parents just got murdered? well someone's whole family was just murdered, suck it up" where it doesn't belong. It works very well in lesser contexts where people complain about situations that aren't very difficult or are petty. I also think that it shouldn't be used strictly as a tool of judgment for one person to lord over another but rather a tool that someone can use on themselves. I mean if I am currently lamenting the fact that I can't buy "Superfluous Purchase #256" I am a spoiled brat and should consider that there are many other people who are less fortune than I am. By acknowledging these other people my own problems seem smaller in comparison and I become stronger as a result.

    Nothing is relative, it's just at some point whatever someone is crying about is in fact stupid and they should feel ridiculous for crying about it and even should feel grateful that all they have to cry about is petty nonsense like "oh I don't have enough money to maintain my luxurious lifestyle".

    Additionally, I never said I agreed with the explanation I gave above as you assumed I did, I was just explaining the idea to Tarranon.

    I don't have a problem with people wearing cologne or deodorant or spray or whatever. More power to you. Smelling good is infinitely better than smelling bad. Some people don't need to smell like anything. I just hate their commercials. Even moreso that they come up when I am watching South Park online and stuff.

    Though, I always found it's nice to have at least one bottle of cologne lying around.

    I had terrible associations with axe in high school, but a few people at my work wear it and I actually like the smell on a few of them. I might have to give it...or something similar another look.

    By contrast, I have never smelled a perfume I liked.

    Heheh... during one of my classes, right in the middle of the lecture, a kid starts wheeling in the classes trashcan after having emptied it earlier. However, I notice that he's wheeling it past where it belongs when he suddenly stops in the middle of the class room and someone stands up from inside the trash can, a can of axe in both hands, spraying madly until both cans are depleted. He promptly ducks back into the trashcan and is wheeled out of the room.

    God, that room stank for days.

    Anyway, I'm off go to deposit a check and buy some blank CDs, toodles.

    oh yeah axe's ad campaign is terrible

    although it led to the one funny thing that happened the one new year's party i was at

    the girl i was porking was cuddled up to my left side, a female friend was sitting on my lap, her friend was on my right, and another friend of mine was curled around my legs

    because by golly i am a cuddly guy and my female friends like cuddling with me

    one of the dudes at the party was ragging on Axe and was like "their commercials are retarded they're all like use Axe and women will be all over you, it's so retarded"

    and i am like

    "well dude, i dunno, i wear axe and right now i am literally covered in women."

    obviously those two things are barely related but watching him backpedal and frown was amusing

    The problem isn't the smell so much as the copious amounts most people use of it, mostly idiotic teens. If kids sprayed on that much Old Spice it'd probably start to get a bad wrap as well. Also, the advertising is stupid enough that I would actively buy a competing brand out of spite if they were the only two options.

    The thing about the axe spray is that it's potent. If you spray axe on yourself, people can smell you from like a room away. Or maybe that's just how them durn teenagers wear it. I throw on a spritz of the Ralph Lauren. I don't want everybody smelling it, just people who somehow end up planting their nose in my jawline somehow.

    Yeah I really like their Pure Sport deodorant. I tried the Swagger and it's alright too but I think the Pure Sport probably goes better with my body soap, shampoo and conditioner.

    i use Axe Touch bodyspray and Axe Touch bodywash

    i also don't wear cologne

    i've worn Touch for years now, it works well for me

    the trick to any kind of scent you add to yourself (perfume, cologne, deodorant, even shampoo) is to find the scent that synergizes with your body chemistry

    everyone has their own chemistry and their own individual scent

    what smells good on one person doesn't necessarily work on someone else

    Touch works well for me. people compliment me on it, people like it, i like it, so it works

    Touch might not work on someone else

    so if Kilo works for you, stick with it.

    Which is the point of cologne. You aren't trying to stink up a room, it should really only be noticeable to someone necking you.

    I'm a mitchum man (unscented) for deodorant and have a bottle of 'armani-mania' from like 3 christmases ago. I have actually had compliments on it once or twice so I might just keep using that when it runs out.

    *edit*
    Oh, and some sort of 'mountain forest view' thing for soap.

    well, look at who it is aimed at. They are probably going to do it anyway. Now, their commercials do encourage that, so it is not like they are totally blameless or anything.

    you basically gotta be conservative with the spray

    the commercials are like HOSE YOURSELF IN THIS SHIT ALL OVER YOUR CHEST AND PITS WHOOOOO

    it's like, ugh, that is not necessary at all

    you give your pits enough so that, you know, it actually works as deodorant

    and then you are good

    spraying across the chest is too much and un-necessary and probably a lot of why people just reek of Axe instead of having a pleasant smell that works with their body
