Hygiene & Cosmetics

Believe it or not, hygiene is so important that ignoring it can be highly debilitating in the long run. Most of us go through life more miserable because we simply find it too embarrassing and/or time consuming to face our irritating bodily issues. This group is intended to advise and promote solutions to prevent and/or cure particular hygiene issues. You can ask those embarrassing questions and maybe you can find someone who has a nifty solution that is simple, affordable, and effective.…See More

"The quote certainly is eloquent.  It seems like that should clarify what is meant by a scientific theory, but I am afraid those who need to understand it most would not get it. Oh the irony of it!"

Truthfully, I took three things from this amazing explanation of Quantum Physics:

  1. My brain hurts.
  2. A vague understanding of how Quantum Physics works. I now feel more equipped than I was before to understand our universe and the wonders it contains.
