The Pain of Hygiene.

I think I have quite possibly discovered the most annoying thing in the entire universe. Well, I didn’t actually discover it, but I am making it official.

The most annoying thing in the entire universe is...

Plastic shower curtains that billow in on you while you are showering. Especially when the shower is rather narrow and the curtain is cold and slimy and won’t stop touching you while you’re sopping wet and just trying to get clean.

I agree completely although it is closely rivaled by significant others who leave hair on the soap.

Scientific America provides some insite into this phenomena:
This article discusses modern fluid motion dyamics simulation as a possible means to an explanation.

Our plastic shower curtains have little magnets on the bottom of them. I think our tub has some metal in it. So the shower curtain more-less sticks to the bottom preventing unwanted touching. Personally, I don't mind a little unwanted touching. Then again, I guess I would if it were in fact, "unwanted". I don't know... I'll have to get back to you on this later.

i don't think that the magnets are there to stick to the shower, since most are porcelin or fiberglass. they're more so to weight the curtain down and to prevent mildew and slime. and if your shower curtain has mildew and or slime, time for a new one! (it pays for daddy to be a plumber...i guess)

Ooh...I hate it when that happens.

They aren't magnets. I think he means the little suction cup thingees. It doesn't matter anyway...I have them in my shower and they don't work. The shower curtain still billows.

Most bathtubs (any I've ever been in) are made of a lot of metal with a thin layer of enamel. So in point of fact there are lots of shower curtains that do have magnets sealed into the 'hems'. I have seen the fancy fiberglass kind on TV, usually owned by people so rich they know what kind of dog they have.

I don't see what everyone's complaining about, when the solution's so simple. My shower curtain has three midgets sewn into the lining, and they work just great. Not only do they press the curtain against the tub, but they also clean between my toes, compliment me on my penis size, harmonize as I sing, and spray that Clean Shower shit on the tiles when I'm done. And if I ask them to let go of the curtain and let it smack me in the ass, they damn near wrap me up in the thing and smother me to death. They say they're just zealous about their work, but I think they're pissed I haven't let them form a union. (I tried using lawyers instead of midgets, since people hate lawyers and love midgets (p.c. term is "little people," yes I've heard it), but the lawyers kept trying to fuck me up the ass. Good toe-cleaners, though.)

I will examine the (what I believe are) magnets a little further and see what I come up with.

They are, indeed, magnets. We have a very old tub.

I'm fairly certain that in at least 47 states, fucking magnets is illegal.

So, that's a no go.
