Comment: Does shower mean soap? (Score 3, Insightful) 250

I ask myself if the showers that kill the flora is just water or use soap.
Shampoo is something I long ago stopped using and after a short period I stopped producing excessive amounts of oil. The only times I have to shampoo is when because of a skin condition.

Using soap in general isn't something I feel is needed since a regular rinsing leaves me non smelly.

Question is if I am actually breeding these little microbes and my lack of soaping is why I don't smell or if it's simply because I'm not a smelly person as some of my friends and family asserts?

I can't see how this will work when not a single electric car is aimed at families.
Living in London I am repeatedly told I should be driving a "green" car instead of my big Renault Espace diesel. The complaint I normally get is that diesel is dirty but as far as I can find while that is true for old diesels without modern filters (+10 years old) it isn't the case with the modern diesels.
Also I almost never drive anywhere with less than 6 people in the car and walk whenever the distance is within a mile and there is nothing bulky to transport.

I have done extensive research into available electric cars but they simply aren't big enough to fit more than 3 children or 4 in a pinch when they have grown out of the legally mandated child seats.

Until we see 6 and 7 seater electrics I don't see it as being anything other than a DINK statement to show off the "green credentials".

The Electrically sensitive people have been known to suffer for persecution from people who have the audacity to expect them to have consistent symptoms along with some verifiable reactions to fields.
Mostly the poor persecuted sufferers have been able to sense fields with less than 50% accuracy, less than the test group that simply guessed.
