Funny little obervation. Several of the Thai girls I have been talking to on SKYPE take a shower after their long day of work, then again in the morning. So they tell me. What is the deal with twice a day showers? And no, these are not whores or whore baths. *insert snide Anna remark here* . Interesting, however, because most Americans typically take one once a day, usually in the morning. Europeans tend to conserve water and take one every two days. True story. So are Thai women cleaner than Americans and westerners.
Nothing unusual, HerrDean. Two showers a day is the norm for most people in 2012.
What the hell are you talking about?
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."
No, it's not and you are an idiot Anna. Why would you take a shower before bed than again in the morning? Rather pointless unless you have sex all night. Seriously. One does not get dirty by laying in bed for 8 hours.
Have you ever been to Thailand? It's hot and humid here. I live in Thailand and take 2-3 showers a day. I guess I must be cleaner than a Westerner.
There you go again with the 'lol" again. What is it with you?

For some reason, I always look at people's fingernails - checking for dirt. I've done this all my life. Dirt under the nails is a sort of character barometer for me. Twelve years in Thailand, working in a huge school with 4,500 Thai students and teachers, I recall very few, if any, dirty nails. It's not easy to stay that clean in such a hot and humid climate. But Thai people do it. Thai people are immaculate.
Now, the bigger question is: why does Field Marshal HerrDean include this lead in his thread? What is so laughing-out-loud funny about shower habits?
Who'd have thought people in hot countries would take more showers.
Let's see how this one develops

HerrDean - why do you not know about basic personal hygiene?
First of all, I take it none of you ever lived in Pennsylvania, which has recently had some of the most extreme conditions on the east coast year round. Extremely cold winters and severely humid summers has been the norm. How many of you have actually lived in the U.S.? We had a drought this year and temps in the 100's with high humidity for quite some time. Not going to argue that Thailand's temps aren't higher when it comes to heat and humidity on an annual basis, but hell, that's what air-conditioned units are for. In fact, I'm assuming many Thais use their AC a lot. Duh. Secondly, NONE of that has anything to do with taking a second shower in the morning, only hours after taking a shower after work. Outside of Anna's rediculous and predictable nightly "dry skin and perspiration" hogwash, most westerners, unless they are 15 and trying to impress a boy, take 1 shower a day. It's typically in the morning, depending on what kind of profession you are in.
I took 3 showers a day in Thailand.
One in the morning before work. One immediately on returning home from work, and one before bed. It's hot. You sweat. A lot.
Do you have coke?
One in the morning before sex, one in the morning after sex, one after work/before dinner, one before evening sex, one after evening sex - rinse-repeat.
Anyyyways...Thai women probably are generally cleaner than your average western female.
When I went to Thailand the first time, almost 20 years ago, I made some crack about Thais and personal hygiene and my professor chuckled and set me straight.
90% of Thai women (and yes I've fucked them all) shower upon waking up, coming home, before bed and before and after sex.
I showered 3-5 times a day when I lived in Thailand.
I shower at least in the morning and once again at night, everyday, no matter where I am.
Old stinky suits smelling of stale booze and staler cigarettes. Oily, dry, dandruffy hair.
Best laughs had on the topic was when I first started teaching in Korea and I was teaching times to the kids and asked them, "...and when do you shower of bath?"
ps. Koreans think westerners are dirty and they are clean because they go to saunas and use scrubs. But scrubbing down once every week or two doesn't compare with daily soap, water, and bodycare!
