Consuming large amounts of caffeine can cause excessive sweating, which in turn produces body odor. Taking in more than 500 mg of caffeine a day can be enough to jump start your sweat glands.
Try severely cutting down on tea, coffee, and soft drinks, or rid them from your diet altogether. Tapering down gradually is the key as withdrawal side effects like fatigue, irritability, and painful headaches can occur when quitting cold turkey.
Body odor begins with bacteria, and nothing kills bacteria like some good ol’ fashioned rubbing alcohol. It’s a temporary solution, and the effects don’t last very long, but it’s a good quick fix in a stinky emergency.
Dip a cotton ball or pad in rubbing alcohol and rub into your armpit. Filling a squirt bottle with alcohol and spraying directly on the armpits works too. Just reapply as needed. After it evaporates, it’s like the stench never was.
Museum Madness is an excellent game that teaches the player facts about American history, geology, dinosaurs, space, technology, and more. The main character is called to help save a museum from a computer virus that is causing displays to come to life.d
The Secret Island of Dr. Quandary
This educational game pits the player against a number of logic-based puzzles in an attempt to escape Dr. Quandry’s island. The graphics aren’t great, but the puzzles are challenging and the narration is good.
The Boy in the Picture
Legend: A man is dropping groceries off at the home of an eccentric old lady when he notices something funny about a picture hanging on the wall. When the man asks who the boy in the picture is, the lady says, “Isn’t that beautiful? You can hardly tell that he’s dead.”
Beleve it or not, from the late 19th through the 20th century, it was common to take pictures of people at funerals. The practice was known as memorial photography. The bodies were dressed and propped up, with their eyes held open. Sometimes, the photos would be retouched to add color to the person’s face. Since photography was so expensive back then, it was one of the only times a person would be photographed. Thankfully, this practice eventually went out of style.
Father of Traffic Safety
Legend: The man who wrote the first traffic safety laws never drove.
This is true! William Phelps Eno is known as “the Father of Traffic Safety,” and he wrote New York City’s (and the world’s) first city traffic code in 1903. He later also developed traffic plans for London and Paris, in spite of having never driven a car in his life.
