I habitually dump very large loaves. So much to a degree to which I prefer to visit at public facilities, since they are more likely to have appliances that will handle my legendary leavings. Lord help me, I can't bring myself to clog my own plumbing.

Bring coffee, laxative, cranberry juice, and Immodium. Keep your shit under control, tune your tubes for minimum effective porta-potty time. Robbie Dobbs, we love you, but 11am in a porta-potty is not pleasant no matter how few wet wipes are in the sludge.

That's for fungus. If there are other causes, it won't help.


It is for this:
http://www.imedwell.org/Triamcinolone-Acetonide-Cream.html
The most common uses for triamcinolone acetonide cream are atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, poison ivy, contact dermatitis, and seborrhea. Any skin condition that is responsive to corticosteroids will benefit from triamcinolone acetonide cream. Doses will be prescribed for short or long term use depending on the nature of the condition. Use will typically be restricted to when your skin is swelling or showing a reaction. The cream may also be used to suppress your immune system when it is overreacting.

Terbinafine, clotrimazole, and ketoconazole are a few examples of common topical antifungal drugs used to treat skin conditions. Triamcinolone acetonide cream does not work on viral, bacterial or fungal infections, and should not be used on areas containing skin infections or sores.

Okay I am going to say this again: all you need is a tiny spray bottle of vinegar water, and another tiny bottle of edible coconut oil. Keep them in a pocket or belt pouch, and use them on your tender bits every time you use the Blue Room. Air out your parts in the daylight hours. You will be fine. And tasty. 8)

I ain't no fricken hippie either 8) Lemur my friend 8) I am a modern medical professional! :P :P :P Do not be throwing your money at those greedy pharmaceutical companies. Do more with less, is what I'm saying, and spend that money on better booze.

PS You smell like a salad anyway, you gluten-free vegan. :shock:

Lemurs usually have a vegetarian diet, consisting of leaves and fruit, although they will occasional eat insects or smaller animals.

I remember hearing about that. :shock:

The invitation states: "We wish to pass along this once in a lifetime opportunity to taste such a rarity."

Or, as Bo Bishop put it: "They're selling processed weasel doodoo for $300 a pound."

I first thought this was a clever hoax designed to ridicule the coffee craze. Tragically, it is not. There really is a Luwak coffee. I know because I bought some from a specialty-coffee company in Atlanta. I paid $37.50 for two ounces of beans. I was expecting the beans to look exotic, considering where they'd been, but they looked like regular coffee beans. In fact, for a moment I was afraid that they were just regular beans, and that I was being ripped off.

Then I thought: What kind of world is this when you worry that people might be ripping you off by selling you coffee that was NOT pooped out by a weasel? -- Dave Barry

You took the bait!

Being in close proximity to a dysfunctional asshole for an extended period of time makes you the expert. 8)

Thanks Corn Man!

Let's go over that again: NO WET WIPES IN THE PORTA POTTIES!
If you enjoy the soft cooling feel of baby wipes on your tush. then bring a ziploc bag (or paper lunch bag for the shy) and pack it out.

Carry on,

In 2011 there was a mutant vehicle parked in front of the central ice camp playing a 20 or 30 minute documentary narration about the life cycle of of the butterlies or something like that.

I was thinking how funny it would be if someone with a good narrator voice (which I definitely don't have) did something like that with all the advice on this thread in a serious non joking manner.
