22: I did it once, for research. The bikes have racer geometry, basically, and heavy freewheels with a tensioning mechanism that allows the pedaler to simulate hills. It's done in a group, typically with a loud, throbbing music mix, and you vary cadences and burn up a whole lot of calories going nowhere. So spinning is to actual cycling as synthetic vulva fragrance is to actual vulva, basically.

While I have never been party to a spin class, I know people who have, and while they haven't told me what it involves, this association, I feel, gives me the authority to say that my impression is that it's supposed to be some kind of cardiovascular/aerobic exercise, and that comports with a high-for-the-most-part cadence.

As it happens, though, depending on the terrain with which you're blessed (not to mention your location's place on the urban/rural continuum), spinning might be the only, or best, way to get the particular "authentic" experience you're interested in—namely, one in which the difficulty of maintaining a given output varies from high to low. Sometimes you don't need technological intervention to get that effect because you can point your bike at a hill. But perhaps there are no hills, and so you doctor the bike directly. But aren't these cases morally the same? Even in the first case, the hill is only valued instrumentally/technically, as something which will evoke a certain kind of physiological response. That, in either case, is what you want to experience, and it's equally real in either.

I'd like to believe that's all it is, but frankly, if television told you to walk around with straws stuck up your nose, you probably wouldn't do it. Even if Brad Pitt and the sexy woman on the exercise bike were doing it. So there's that.

This winds up being an endless, round and about discussion, though. Of course. The portion of humankind sharing a desire to clothe itself in rather strong artificial scents just confounds me and always has. My apologies to those of you who wear them on a regular basis.

Leaving aside the whole marketing-to-people's-insecurities thing (which is hard to overstate), I have for years tried to track down a study I once read that claimed that people smell human sweat differently. That is, about 1/3 of people cannot smell it, to another 1/3 it smells bad, and the last 1/3 experience it as a faint, vaguely pleasant odor.

Social conditioning aside, if the above is even approximately true, I can see an inherent conflict between people who think sweat smells gross and want to cover it up with something strong and "clean," and people who don't mind sweat and who find the artificial covering-up scents to be actively unpleasant.

Plus, there's the whole issue of people getting accustomed to their own perfumes, and needing to put more on to be able to smell it, which can result in something overpowering.

All of that said, I have worn really yummy perfumes and loved them.

I once had to inform a work-mate that he stank. People [i.e. women] had complained, and as I was the 'boss' in that particular job, I was the one who had to do it. As I started to tell him, he misunderstood what I was asking about, and started telling me about his 'cutting' [he thought people had told me he'd been cutting himself]. Which then led to a very awkward conversation indeed, where I had to explain no, that wasn't it but shit! wtf, and, btw, you stink.

Same reason they pay $1.25 for 20 ounces of tap water in a plastic bottle: television told them to.

I have this great idea for a product that will definitely make me a billionaire. I call it "Give me a dollar." I put machines up all over the country that work basically like vending machines, except they don't give anything back. You just put in a dollar. Then I run ads everywhere saying "YOU ARE THE NEW GENERATION. YOU DON"T SETTLE FOR IMAGE. GIVE ME A DOLLAR."

I love the smell of vulva in the morning.

One good way to kill the blog is to zap comments even as they appear.

It is apparently almost impossible to pass on mascot uniforms from one person to another, because the stink is so bad, so ineradicable, and so personal.

same goes for bugs bunny outfits worn at Disney...

Did 105 confuse you?

No. The other thread confused me. 105 roused me to a full froth of fervent fandom.

I had a girlfriend/live-in who was one of those "deodorant is evil to women/etc. B.S." The unfortunate thing about it is that she was one of those people who totally reeked when stressed and sweaty. AND she was job hunting.

It was awkward. I had to ask my husband to try to be gentle and let her know what was going on. It did not help that she liked to eat stuff that does not help body odor, like sardines and onions.

A simple application of an (a brand that she thought was acceptable) deodorant helped the whole thing.

I also knew a couple of rennies that worked for a scent/incense/pewter dealers that were of that same mindset and just didn't care. When your BO exceeds the scent/essential oil products you are selling, you need to do something about it. They were both (male ands female) so rank it was disgusting. And they and their clothes looked clean.

Not reading the thread right now, but I think that my good friend, who's been a bike geek since he was 15 years old in the mid-70s, will have a heart attack and die when I send him this.

You just put in a dollar. Then I run ads everywhere

and sell t-shirts that say, "I GAVE HIM A DOLLAR". I'd buy one of those.

How much would the t-shirts cost?
