BTW, on another note, I have been facing a slightly complicated issue. How do you tell a woman that she has a BO problem? I mean, someone you might work with or a friend. Say, if a guy friend had issues you could buy him an AXE deo if you were feeling nice or just ignore him or if you can't do that tell the guy, but with women what do you do? I mean buying a deo is a bit direct and can be deemed 'insulting' but not saying anything could be life-threatening (or nose-theatening at the very least). Advice?
And on the spat at SSC which consumed thousands of bytes of server space at Blogspot, there is a blog, ostensibly written by a person claiming to be Samuel Scott Allnutt. Which is fine and dandy until you realise that Rev. Allnutt died over a century ago and is buried behind the chapel. So it might be by someone in college, but not me for sure. This blog has a lot of the stories that papers came out with during and after the crisis, but it missed this gem by Swapan Dasgupta in DNA. For the time being at least!
Here are some interesting snippets from all over the interweb...

There is this really cool fashion photographer called Napoleon Habeica, and he does the photoshoots for American Apparel, a all-American brand to combat evil Chinese and Indian textile exports (aka banking on old fashioned US xenophobia - but can you really compete withb Wal*Mart's super-duper low prices). Anyway, the point is, American Apparel opened its first store outside the US in Mexico City and these are some of the outtakes from the shoot for the Mexico store. All I can say is whoa!
