Most stores are not selling talc.  Talc is a cousin to asbestos. They commonly occur in same mineral deposit.  This makes it hard to ensure 0% asbestos in talc.  It is believed that asbestos contaminated talc powder caused ovarian cancer in some women who powdered nether regions daily for decades.  This has never been proven.
But out of fear and such talc is being abandoned.  And corn starch put in its place.  Too bad corn starch feeds microbe growth and hardened when wet and dried again.  Put foot powder in shoe.  Sweat.  Take shoe off.  Sock is sticky and hard.  Gross as fuuuuuuuck.
Talc won't do that.  It's mineral.
If you find real talc let me know asap. And buy a large container.

Had been using talc to lube my model rocket parachutes for ages. The deal about asbestos in talc had crossed my mind--the Johnson & Johnson lawsuit. Went to Dollar Tree and bought "baby powder". Purchased both medicated body powder and foot powder from the store a few years ago and still have them, but couldn't locate those items now. Very hard to get the foot powder open too.

Read in our local news paper they are allowing people to have chickens within the city limits. Hens only. Your not allowed to have a rooster. Not a big deal. Plenty of regulations in place to keep things clean and neighborly. What got me was the Republican response. A republican rep could not understand why people would want to have hens when the price of eggs are going down. The level of stupidity is amazing. Had a member of any governing body said something that stupid years ago they would have been laughed out of office. They go on to proclaim this will not stop with just hens. People will want to raise sheep and pigs as well. You know, fear mongering. I'm really thankful that our local news paper has let this town know the level of stupidity it takes to be a modern republican.  Unfortunately I know a modern republicans can no longer think for themselves. And see nothing wrong with hens producing eggs without roosters.

Still,  local drivers grind my gears.
I think these people grew up down wind of a lead smelter.

Does green mean go or pick the nose? Well they can't figure either one out.  It hurts living amongst these mere mortals.

Jade you and I suffer from the same school of driving. Both green and red lights are just suggestions. Yellow is there because it looks good. OK to make a right on a red means it's also OK just to park there.

My cable and internet provider. I don't watch much TV. But when I want to I would like it to be there. Every once in a wile I like to catch Noir Alley on the TMC channel. Don't know when it happened but last night I found out that TMC is now upgrade only. They just raised the price and now they want more fore what I thought I was paying for. The good news is I can watch the same Noir movies for free on line. All of these movies are in the public domain.  If TMC gets 99% if their shows for free then why do they need more money? Then there is the internet.  Been having problems getting my emails. In sporadic patters I get my email without having to do anything. But this WILL turn itself off if I have to give passwords or verification to open some of my mail. It can be a real pain in the back.

Dude parked his new 4wd crewcab pickup 90-degrees out from a parking space that runs parallel to the edge of the parking lot--clearly marked too. One had to drive through the crosshatched area to enter the lot. Fortunately, there were no other patrons at that business.

The totally out of their mind pricing for business supplies. For a part I need. If I buy one I get it for $9.99. If I buy a box of four I get the box for $55........  One at a time I get lids. A case of four I have to buy the lids separately. And the more in a single case I buy the more expensive they get. Different product.  If I buy this product straight from the American manufacturer a case is almost $70. If I buy from that exact same manufacturer through Amazon the very same case would cost $38. FROM the very same manufacturer. The very same product. I've been in management. I understand it's important to be able to keep track of multiple departments spending. So you only get supplies from a hand full of companies. You get raked over the coals to make it easy on tracking and accounting. Not happening. Who ever ends up doing my taxes will be working on them for weeks.  :D

Eating challenges for views! You could help end hunger but would rather make a pig out of yourself for views.  :goldpissed:

Parked in a spot near the marketplace in Michigan's "Little Bavaria" yesterday morning. As the town wakes up, parking fills up fast. Some will make their own parking space as it's not enforced, but no one dares take a blue space. In moments of my arrival, all the safety zones were occupied, then more were parked outside--making the access lane narrow. so only one car could pass either direction. Crazy.

I'm stupid.  What's a blue space?

What grinds my gears lately?
Unrealistic expectations in my chosen profession.

Here,  a few stores have dedicated police parking.  I thought perhaps that is what a blue space was.  But now I getcha.

My company misplace perhaps 80,000 dollars of government equipment.  Not good.
How did we do that?

Amazon's idea of black a Friday deal is to raise the price OR join prime to get the better deal. Ended up paying more for what I need.
