Perhaps that's it about ATHF. You can't try to like it. You can't try to find the humor. You just gotta let the jokes come. I know when I first watched it, I thought "WTF this is retarded." Later I came back to it, and realized how funny it is.

Believe it or not, the episodes do relate to real life. It's probably not hard to find someone who would chop off their legs in a misguided effort to lose weight.

Though in retrospect, people don't have the same kinds of humor, so I guess that's understandable.

Kineticka wrote:Also, a quick question for the ladies who only wear pads and not tampons: How do you handle showers? I've been using tampons since I started, and can't wrap my brain around being comfortable without in the shower.

Crikey, moses! Even when I'm wearing a tampon, I take it out to shower! Everything's going down the drain anyway, and it seems to me it's the most effective way to wash :-) If it's my first day, I'll put one in straight after.

Actually, I used to be a tampon-only girlie, but because I bleed so lightly, I was advised by my doctor to switch to pads for all but my most heavy days (which, even then, aren't heavy by anyone else's standards), because using tampons when there's relatively little blood can lead to bits of the tampon being left inside, and infections, and nasty smells... :-( So now I switch between them.

On the subject of how much guys know, I was staggered at being asked by more than one of the doctors I've had over the years whether I was a doctor, simply because (a) I know my body so well, (and managed to position my diaphragm correctly the first time) and (b) I read up on stuff I'm putting into my body, so I'm familiar with drug names, etc. Admittedly, this was in the UK. The doctors I had in the states seemed much more with it - but then, they were also women :-)

Also, my Mum (who's a nurse) once explained to me that the body's reaction when it becomes submerged in water is to stop the menstrual flow, so theoretically, one shouldn't bleed in the swimming pool even without a tampon/cup/keeper in.

I'm not willing to try that one out though :-o

You don't really bleed when you're swimming (I tried it in a lake). Problem is, you bleed as soon as you get out, so by the time you get the tampon or pad back in, you might have to wash your bottoms.

I always shower with a tampon during girlweek. I just can't get past the blood on my legs, and when I get out and start bleeding all down my nice clean legs, it really negates the shower.

True, but if we didn't spend much time in the water, it would probably never become a selective feature.

And I believe you may be thinking of sea-raptors, or "sharks" as the uneducated call them.

That's funny. I can hold a cup underwater and the air doesn't come out either, if the cup's vagina is properly closed. Maybe the cup used to be semi-aquatic also!

Joking. Sorta. Blood can and will come out if you *want* it to, but generally if you're not trying to, it won't. Your muscles definitely withdraw slightly while submerged.

(emphasis mine)

...that we were talking about an actual biological reaction to stop blood from escaping, rather than just a matter of air pressure.

Would've been a nice burn otherwise, though.

Also, my Mum (who's a nurse) once explained to me that the body's reaction when it becomes submerged in water is to stop the menstrual flow, so theoretically, one shouldn't bleed in the swimming pool even without a tampon/cup/keeper in.

Funny...that's another little piece of evidence for that weird theory that we were semi-aquatic somewhere in our (relatively recent) evolutionary history.....

The way to test this is obviously to find a bunch of menstruating apes and toss them into a swimming pool.

Then again, it could be nothing more than an epiphenomenon caused by some other evolutionary pressure that had nothing directly to do with swimming.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

I would think that it's more to prevent water and dirty stuff in said water from going in and preventing stuff from coming out is just a side-effect.

Oh totally. Most of the "evidence" for that theory can be explained by other evolutionary "causes", which is why it's pretty crackpot. The only real backing for it is "Huh, when you look at all of these factors next to each other, it does look sortof like....."

I just like to mentally tic off pseudo-evidence for it. I don't even strongly suspect that it's true, I just think it would be amusing if it was.

I'm all for the menstruating apes experiment. Meet you at the zoo in two hours?

Again, if we didn't spend much or any time submerged in water, it would never come up.
