    Yeah obviously you got it, I thought the second part of the clue might tip it, but I didn't think the hair reference was a sufficient clue.

    Ok clue time, for this clue I will use the now established hairstyle dating system. Pre Mullet in fact Moptops were fading from view. The main figure is remembered as much for his/her death as her/ his life and work.

    What's on your mind?

    I've become used to the ' not quite as dry as in the winter months ' state of all my washing ... can't imagine even trying to use a talcum powder up here < shudders with disgust at the messiness of blobs of powder > @Rybags don't want to think about how the babies' butt cheeks look after it's nappy becomes wet ... that's just horrible for the kid ... no wonder they cry soo much ... bloody blobs of talc accumulated in amongst the rest of it

    The actual purpose is for use on areas that can get sweaty but not evaporate like feet, baby butt-cheeks etc as a rash preventative. Using it while the skin is still wet defeats the purpose.

    i remember learning that its supposedly common for English people to use talc for drying themselves. dont know if thats true, but i suppose it would make more sense in places where towels tend to stay permanently damp. i tried it a couple of times as an adult for novelty sake. i dried myself thoroughly regardless, but the talc did produce a comfortable feeling of slippin' and slidin' around inside my clothes. growing up though, i was always told that stuff is "unhealthy" haha

    I don't understand the minutia of the agreement either ... but I thought the people did vote, cos that's how the Brexit came to be in play ... confused here as to the drawing out of it all . Is that why the people forgot they had a vote already, cos it's all taking soooo long ?

    TBH, it might well have been cos we were not a family prone to spending money on things other than those needed to provide warmth and sustenance ; but as a kid growing up in a large family talcum powder would've been a bit of a luxury for us. I do recall seeing it at my cousins and some friends houses when we did sleep-overs. I have two memories concerning talc powder . The few times I came in contact with it it made me cough was one. Second relates to a grown -up at that time saying that talcum powder was for lazy people. People who did not dry their bodies sufficiently before re-dressing, and, or did not change the nappies of their offspring with the required frequency << included in this last was that perhaps the washing of the cotton nappies was also less than satisfactory. I don't remember the woman's name today but I do recall I was not allowed to put my pyjamas on till I had spent a good long time drying myself off first ... for a five or six year old that was extremely tedious. I have to say though I sorta took her words with me as I grew and have never bought a talcum powder of any brand, nor have I needed it. ... funny how some things stick Just breathing in a dust that fine whether it has asbestos or not can prove to be nasty on one's innards. ... but for those using it to keep their crotches and under-arms free of whatever it's gonna be even nastier

    Add the use of stuff like round-up by farmers which I think is a great plant killer but always means it kills ... us ... slowly since trace amounts of it get into the food supply.

    I think there was no proof talc was problematic earlier with no real studies. But now, proof exists asbestos laced talc has proof it does cause cancers. And the industry has been denying it's products have asbestos.

    I don't know why this asbestos/baby powder thing is News now - my first-year high school art class cancelled talcum carving because the news about asbestos in talcum powder had just broken. That was in the freakin' '80s!!

    Guyver: Dark Hero Quite honestly the worst (and simultaneously fun) movies I've ever seen. It's on a par with Power Rangers for effects and costuming, with a story somewhere between utter drivel and pulp SciFi. But, if you're in the mod to get altered and throw popcorn at the screen...

    Venom. Critics basically panned it but hey I found it moderately entertaining.
