I think I'm gonna buy a bunch of these and hand them out to the ripest individuals at PAX.

    It's not really a joke, though. It's a stereotype.

    Doesn't mean it's not partially true, though.

    I have noticed that glycerin soaps lose their scent after a few washes. I had a bar that took home from a hotel and after a few days of showering, I started to notice an odd gravy smell. Turns out that the soapy smell had gone out of the soap and now just smelled like glycerin (animal fat).

    That's right, that isn't the best idea....
    ....Go for a profit, man!

    Say, wouldn't that hurt a bit though? You're scrubbing yourself (with pressure, I assume) and then suddenly the thing you're scraping against yourself isn't a soft piece of soap, but a plastic die?

    rub soap onto hands, rub hands onto area you want to wash. Scrub clean.

    Voila! No fucking gross ass hairs stuck in the soap.

    I can't believe I have to explain that.

    Nobody complained about hair.

    QuizMaster was complaining that he would scratch himself up on the dice in the soap as he scrubbed, which would inevitably lead to those nasty curly hairs embedded in the bar.

    Nobody wants that.

    I was just trying to help.

    Now I look like a jackass.

    Thanks.

    Thanks a lot.

    Nice going.

    Despite popular belief, i am not God, but I do share his view on many various controversies.

    But yea, hairy soap is annoying. What is with people who use soap, set it down, and it looks like a friggen Tribble. Do they not realize?

    Also, what is up with airline food

    They were talking about that caffeinated soap on some tv show a while back. Apparently caffeine can't simple be absorbed through the skin, you have to injest it.

    Its a clever gimmick, though.

    Woohoo! Finally a practical cure for Gamer Funk!

    As for the dice hurting you while showering... What the HELL!? What kind of 20 sided dice have you touched? Spiky 20 sided's of doom? Most 20 sided's are soft enough that it wouldn't be a problem.

    True.. now if it was a d4 i would see there being problems... nothing hurts worst when you get up from a D&D Campaign when you step on a misplaced d4.. no need for caltrops here!

    Ugh, yeah, 4 sided die = not so much fun!

    The sad thing is that we've all probably done that. Heck, even kids have to deal with those things in Monopoly.

    Monopoly uses 6 sided dice, eh? Well, at least the Canadian Edition does.

    And it's not a matter of how spiky it is. It's the difference between a soft piece of soap and a hard die. And I don't know about you, but I actually apply pressure when using soap.

    6 sided dice can be painfull as well! For some reason I totally ignored "4 sided dice" and was thinking about "6 sided dice."

    I tend to lather the soap then then rub it in with a loofa/washcloth, or else you don't remove all of you dead skin cells. unless you have really good water pressure!

    Ok, the fact that 2 of the hotels have good pools should be a strong attraction for cooling off after pax. i mean COME ON GUYS.. A frikin pool at the end of august is just plain awesome. Use the pool, It will keep you smelling fresh and relax after a hard day of gaming.

Yea, the wing would poke out and you'd have to be careful... but you didn't buy that soap for the soap - you bought it because (like licking those lolipops with gum in them, to get to the center) it was all just fun and anticipation to finally get that colorful toy you could see there just out of your reach.

    Obviously this is all a scam to get gamers clean. Just at you bought those soaps with the toys to get kids to wash just to get to the toy... now you have gamer nerds forced to wash just to get to the D20.

    Okay, I have to toally agree with you. "It's the Principal man!" And no, I never had one of those soaps, but I've seen em, and that would have been hella sweet! I probably would have died (pardon the pun) for a d20 soap when I was 10!
