Franco, yes if, like many, you use nair on your lawn; otherwise it might take a few years.

Oh, man. Hey, where are we?
  Fri. 4/27/18 10:31pm chresti:

Sounds nice! Hello
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay! I've got my work cut out for the weekend cleaning up this mess. Thanks for the tip.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

Franco -seriously, there is another consideration; if the hair is long enough a bird very likely will use it to make a nest, and quite easily hang herself trying to work with it. (i have seen this)
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:37pm Franco Twinkie:

Jesus! I better get started now. even though it's getting dark outside.
  Fri. 4/27/18 10:37pm rw:

Hang herself? That’s awful. I heard a similar story about a fox this weekend. I think it’s more likely the hair will just dissipate. Wind, birds, etc.
  Fri. 4/27/18 10:38pm rw:

How much hair are we talkin’ about here?
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:39pm Daniel Blumin:

Hello, Chresti!!! Thanks, phil!
  Fri. 4/27/18 10:42pm chresti:

If it’s long, it might get tangled up in someone’s feet and trip them!
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

i have a photograph of a bird skeleton hanging by her neck from hair attached to a mostly built nest. bird's will use just about anything strand-like.
i don't think i'd worry too much about a bird working on a nest overnight though.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:43pm melinda:

That was hypnotic.
  Fri. 4/27/18 10:43pm rw:

Oh, DB, The show is sounding great in my back yard!
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Well, I gave my girlfriend a haircut this afternoon(she had quite a mop) and instead of picking it up I just threw it onto a pile of dry leaves thinking our cat might like to lay on it. Is this flawed logic?
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:44pm coelacanth∅:

somebody's back yard is sounding great in my bedroom!
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:44pm Daniel Blumin:

rw, no neighbors, I hope!
  Fri. 4/27/18 10:46pm rw:

Neighbors asked me to turn it up.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:47pm coelacanth∅:

Franco i'd guess that if it's not more than maybe 6-7" it's not a big risk to a bird? and maybe a rabbit will use it for a nest and be thankful for it. i dunno.
  Fri. 4/27/18 10:48pm rw:

Dog’s asking for a walk. I may need to go. Thanks Daniel! Enjoy the weekend! Take care all! Have a hairy one!

Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:53pm melinda:

Several years ago I bought a product called Veet, which smelled just like Nair. So I guess it was reincarnated.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:55pm Franco Twinkie:

I'll tell you, BooBoo was really starting to look like a witch, so I thought something shoulder length and bobbed would nice with her new sun dress. I didn't think it could be a potential ecological disaster.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:56pm Tome:

great stuff hello Daniel and all
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 10:56pm coelacanth∅:

"veet" sounds more 21st century. i'd think that after several decades of clinical testing they'd determine that burning your skin might not be good, but maybe it's okay to burn your skin after all.

something about cassettes I dunno esp when you crank the sound up , you can just sink your tteef into !

Good evening, Dr. Bluminstein. It's alive!
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:01pm melinda:

The hair discussion reminded me of the Body Farm in Tennessee where they study human decay, so I looked it up and found a line of body care products of the same name. I wonder if they know.
  Fri. 4/27/18 11:02pm chresti:

The hair on my legs fell off after a bad sunburn
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:03pm coelacanth∅:

according to the stickywebs nair is still sold at mallwart and other fine stores.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:05pm melinda:

I used to get catalogues from the Vermont Country Store which would sometimes have long-forgotten toiletries like Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific.

Happy 60!
  Fri. 4/27/18 11:10pm chresti:

Prell? Nice hair product
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:10pm Franco Twinkie:

This sounds like the novel Mailman by Robert J Lennon! Great book.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:11pm ashestoashes:

In terms of all the hair product comments I think it might be worth noting that in the Mahabarata, Yudhishthira wagers his wife, Draupadi, in an epic losing gambling battle with Duryodhana and Yudhishthira suggests that she is as beautiful as Lakshmi and also that she is "devoid of excessive bodily hair." No nair needed in the celestial realms.
  Fri. 4/27/18 11:11pm chresti:

I wish that mailman delivered in our neighborhood
  Fri. 4/27/18 11:12pm Kat in Chicago:

I wish I could go to that Good Room show! Alas, my record fair plans fell through.
  Fri. 4/27/18 11:13pm chresti:

I had that catalog before. Had a potpourri feeling to it-with ruffles

What the hell did I start here? I think I'll keep my comments about music from now on.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:16pm ashestoashes:

Franco, hair grows even after death. You can stop hair no more than you can stop music.

@chresti yes, haha

i guess dolphins don't need shampoo. (somehow some fishes do)
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:29pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, one more. When I was about 5 years old my cousin Albert decided to wash his hair with Ajax cleanser just to make me and my sister laugh(I come from a family of clowns) It was great until he got it in his eyes and started screaming. Well, My Aunt beat him senseless which only made it funnier, especially since the Ajax made his hair stand straight up.
  Fri. 4/27/18 11:30pm chresti:

That stuff will burn the hair off for sure

Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:36pm coelacanth∅:

as children we bathed once/week. i had lots of zits so it was important that at least my long hair wasn't too disgusting at school and one sunday night i discovered there was no shampoo. my father gave me this plastic thing with just enough shampoo for one time but i was suspicious and extracted that it was enema soap!
but i had no choice and used it and it made my hair much more healthy looking than the prell concentrate had been doing.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

fleep i thought you meant the shimmering of the movie stars after using lustre creme shampoo!

yeah this set is astounding

Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:43pm fleep:

Growing up, I was constantly wet.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Soap is soap. Once my aunt(a different one) tried to get me to go to the store in the middle of the night to buy her some laundry soap - which I refused to do. But she just wouldn't take no for an answer. Finally in exasperation I said "just use dish soap, it'd the same damn thing!" and hung up the phone. Later she told me it worked great.
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Don't astronauts have some kind of dry shampoo thing?
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

probably ran around naked all the time too fleep, huh?
  Fri. 4/27/18 11:47pm Kat in Chicago:

Yeah, the knowledge that something called "enema soap" exists wasn't the takeaway I'd expected from the playlist tonight
Avatar Fri. 4/27/18 11:47pm coelacanth∅:

chresti i didn't either. (actually i didn't know what an enema was until that night)
