    I don’t have to, but I choose to support some local farmers trying to make a living.

    Unless you have some actual science, then, yes, you are probably engaging in pure bs. IMO. There have been some specific studies, none conclusive as of yet. Look it up. Don't spread nonsense unless you have some actual science.

    there is a great deal of damage being done to science by "politics". IMO.

    What do think this is? The internet? :twisted:

    Corn starch is also a good fix for a sweaty / sticky fretting hand. But, yes, if used heavily then you've got to clean up the fretboard next string change.

    Well that's me told. I'll watch the off the cuff comments in future, I keep forgetting that Americans don't get it.

    Having slapped me down for 'spreading nonsense', I assume that you're going to do the same to boris bubbanov. Or does he get a pass? :rolleyes:

    Steady on. Spreading nonsense will earn you a bollocking in these parts.

    This machine runs on nonsense. In between the good information, of course.

    Sometimes it’s the negative space that really makes a piece work.

    For the most part, I'm used to boris expressing opinions and providing some sort of logic behind them.

    Not exactly what you did, right?

    Are you saying you were engaging in the vaunted archly acerbic wit of the Emerald Isles? If that's the case, don't quit your day job.

    There's plenty of colleagues here from your side of the pond who manage to convey humour successfully, even for us dim-witted Americans.

    All that being said, quite a bit is lost in translation, just looking at the bare scribbles on a screen. Most likely, had we had the opportunity to have this conversation in person, I'd be buying you a round, even if we couldn't agree on what was the best drink...

    There are lawsuits about baby powder now, but like so many "ambulance chaser" lawsuits, the reality is much different than perception.

    I'll side with notmyusualuerid on this one . If nothing else , there is actual fact behind what he said, albeit they are likely used to make money mostly.

    The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization (WHO). Its major goal is to identify causes of cancer.

    • IARC classifies talc that contains asbestos as “carcinogenic to humans.”
    • Based on the lack of data from human studies and on limited data in lab animal studies, IARC classifies inhaled talc not containing asbestos as “not classifiable as to carcinogenicity in humans.”
    • Based on limited evidence from human studies of a link to ovarian cancer, IARC classifies the perineal (genital) use of talc-based body powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”

    I'm sure there have been many rock bands who, when caught in airports with small plastic bags of white powder, have declared "it's for my fretting hand!"

    done! This time of year, in Texas, it's too freckin' hot and heavy is too heavy, but we make up for it by doubling our consumption...

    Scotland is in Ireland, isn't it? And you all sound like Australians

    I watched a hard hitting documentary on this called 'Braveheart'. The rest of you keep challenging him and there will be buttocks presented, if that documentary was accurate. He is probably painting his sporran blue as we speak

    Don't even pretend that you don't remember that when you were a baby you ran around sucking out of every bottle you could find, I mean every one of them!
