Sweaty McSweaterson

It is hot and I sweat. No, I POUR sweat from my head and it is quite embarrassing in public. Are there ways to deal with excessive head sweating aside from hiding in my house splayed in front of the my lone fan? [more inside]

Subverting My Attraction to Negative Passive People

I find myself in a pattern of getting into long-term relationships with people who end up displaying massive passive-aggressive tendancies and negativity.

How to make a fruit yogurt out of pencil shavings?

Today I overheard a guy saying that there's a Japanese patent to make fake fruit bits out of wood chips, by texturizing and adding artificial flavors, and that that's how they make fruit yogurt. Is this true in any way?

Proper etiquette for the showers/ hot tub at the YMCA?

What is the proper etiquette for the showers/ hot tub at the YMCA? I have been using my local YMCA for a few months now, and have so far not used the showers or the hot tub.... but I would love to do so. My question is this - what's the dress code? naked for the shower? naked in the hut tub? bathing suit? I have no idea. I don't mind being naked around other men, I just don't want to be the naked man who's doing it wrong. I know, it's a silly question. but still.
