First of all "health" isn't a verb. Second it just sounds f*cking retarded to say "healthing".

Companies like Lysol pray on these germaphobe idiots that think everything has to be "germ-free". Ever think that a few germs and microbes might be good for your immune system? If it doesn't get germs to practice on, you're gonna be screwed when a really bad virus comes along.

I've been sick once in the last five years, and it was for 2 days. I have a great immune system.

God, I miss George Carlin...saw him live the year before he died--priceless. I'm new to the site, I found it while trying to find out if the Godawful caterwauling in the St. Jude's ad was a real song. I can't tell you how happy I am to find out that I am not the only person who mutes the television when a Kit-Kat ad comes on, or wants to punch the new Wendy's twit in the ovaries.

Yup--exactly. We're doing the opposite of being healthy by using anti-bacterial soaps for everything. They're more harmful than good---by killing off all the little germs, we're making way for a huge SUPER BUG that won't be easily killed because it'll be immune to everything due to anti-bacterial stuff and the fact that Mommy has to give little Timmy an antibiotic from the doctor every time he gets the sniffles.

I never use antibacterial anything---hell, sometimes I don't even use regular soap to wash my hands at all, and so far, so good. I eat off the floor---well, not off the floor, but if it falls on the floor, there's the 5-minute rule at my house...LOL!---I never worry about food being cooked to the "proper temperature" (I actually prefer stuff rare---the closer to raw the better), and probably do a million other "non-sanitary" things that would make all the clean-freak mommies in the universe sh*t cats and heavy machinery. What the hell did OUR moms do before those stupid little bottles of hand sanitizers? How did we ever survive? LOL  Good GOD. I never had a lot of colds as a kid, and I rarely get them now. 

You NEED a certain amount of dirt/germs to build up a healthy immune system---that's a fact. And with everyone's germaphobia about dirt & everyday bacteria, no wonder everyone's kid has some life-threatening allergy to peanuts or whatever because basically, they're kept in a bubble and never get the chance to build up antibodies to anything. I don't remember anyone who had peanut allergies or anything else when I was growing up, but ever since this huge anti-germ campaign, they're rampant.  George Carlin is spot on. Eat a little dirt once in a while---it won't kill you.

By the end of the commercial, I was expecting to see all the sheeple in the "healthing" parade walking in a cloud of Lysol vapor being emitted by large trucks preceding them. Gotta keep that outdoor air fresh and clean.

According to the latest Lysol commercial, if you use Febreze, you're not healthing, you're perfuming.   Someone please make it stop!!!!Angry

ConfusedWell, at least they got the 'perfuming' part right.
All the same, if you've been sitting & sweating, lying & drooling, farting & leaking all over that furniture, 'perfuming' is semi-acceptable (accompanied by 'open windows' and fans). 'Healthing', in that case, is usually achieved with gasoline & matches ('gasolina', for our undocumented brethren).

Lysol also makes me gag. Even worse is beauty shop permanent solution. It can actually make me vomit.


Oh, perm solution.

My mom really wanted me to have curly hair as a kid, but for whatever reason she was not able to make it work with curlers, a curling iron, or braids (or anything else she tried). The only reason I think they didn't work is that whenever she would put my hair up, she wouldn't wait for it to work - she would quickly undo everything to see if it worked. Whenever I've done these things, I've left my hair up for the day and my hair has curled fine.

Her last resort was the professional perm. When I was about 8 we went to the hairstylist, and I sat through getting my hair permed. Breathing in the solution made me feel really dizzy, but I didn't complain. When my hair was done, I wasn't supposed to touch it or get it wet or anything (and since this was summer, that last one seemed pretty excruciating). However, the worst part was when I woke up the next day. I was itching all over and having trouble breathing. I ran to my mom and she actually gasped when she looked at me. We both knew what it was (hives from a nasty allergic reaction). We went to the hospital and she grilled me on where I got the sunscreen (which is what we knew I was allergic to) and why I had left it on. I hadn't used any sunscreen the day before as I had been at the damn hair salon, with her. The doctors figured out that it was not any sunscreen, but the stupid perm solution that I was allergic to. They basically scrubbed me all over to get it off, and in the process scrubbed out my stupid curlsLOL.

She actually considered doing it again about 6 months later, so I could have curls for some wedding or something or other, then we could wash out the perm solution againShockedLOL. My dad talked her out of it.

The funniest thing is that when I moved to Oregon when I was about 19 my hair completely changed and became naturally curly.Big smile This has absolutely confounded my mom.LOL

God, I remember that smell from the times I had to pick my mother up from the beauty parlor.  I think, the first time, it singed the hair in my nostrils.

ConfusedHas it recovered yet, Y?! Sounds like when you moved to Oregon, your hair caught a nasty bout of the dreaded Oregon Origami disease.

Yutolia, did your Mom ever want you to get into beauty pageants as a child? LOL  Me and sisters all have way too much hair (naturally wavy) and she always had to put it in a ponytail until we would reach 12yo or so.  Our heads are now so tough it would be hard to penetrate them at all.
As to the Lysol deal, my Mom was really passive-agressive about sh*t like that so we couldn't tell anybody that she did stuff to hurt/discomfort/irk, etc. She tapered her fingernails to a pretty good point (I know, so weird) and when she wanted to get your attention or get on your nerves, she would pound one of those little suckers into the top of your shoulder.  It hurt and it was really hard not to smack her.  Of course, we didn't but still...

Is there a thread dedicated just to truly irritating words created by/for advertising? Seems like 3/4 of all commercials I hate are because of a word created just for the sake of catchiness! Angry

I'm the same way, if a piece of pizza falls on the floor, face down, I pick it up and eat it. I might blow on it to release any errant dust, but that sh*t's going in my face.

I never get colds or flus, never get flu shots, never get bowel problems. Like the Carlin bit, when I was a teenager I used to waterski in the Ohio river. It's a putrid cesspool of scum and human waste. I used to come out of there smelling like death, and with a lot of the filthy water in my nose, eyes and mouth.

It took a 30 minute shower to wash off the scum and dirt, but my immune system is like a tank. Whatever comes along, it's gone. Bird flu wouldn't even phase me.

Homey don't have no stinkin' Lysol Wipes, but I'm about to 'head to the shed' and do the 'healthing' thing, having had a nice breakfast with plenty of coffee.
Heck, it'll prolly be the squirty 'Healthing' thing, considering the amount of coffee I've gone through today.
I might use 'Charmin' or the first small furry thing that runs by, after 'Healting'.

Aren't you glad your parents avoided healthing in favor of immuning? LOL Sorry.
 
Doctors are starting re-thinking a lot of this stuff  in the same vein you mentioned above. Personal experience: I was allergic to dogs as a kid but my parents didn't want to get rid of our dog. I lost my allergy to dogs. The canine reset my immune system. Same principle as allergy shots, but much more pleasant to be around.
***
English, like the other languages spoken where academics and other advancements are widespread, is dynamic. New words pop up and old ones "die," or at least become archaic. However, coining unnecessary new words just for the sake of coining them gets old fast. And the ad folks don't seem to get that cutesy annoying stuff often drives customers to other brands.
 
I had a psychology professor who avoided buying Wisk detergent/stain remover because she couldn't stand the "Ring around the collar" ads. She has a Ph.D., mind you, so she knows what's going on in her head and that her dislike for Wisk had nothing to do with the product itself. She still couldn't overcome it. (It made a good anecdote to explain conditioning, though.) In short, refusing to buy a product because you hate its advertising is beyond normal: it's ordinary.
 
And whoever made up "healthing" makes more money than many of us reading this...if not most. Angry

I can't imagine avoiding a product because of the advertising.  First of all, I try to buy generic or off-brands whenever possible.  Second, I often don't remember what exact product has the offensive ad.  I might remember "Swapportunity", but I won't remember what product uses that word.  Third of all, if I avoided products with bad advertising, I'd probably be driving around without car insurance right now.

This reminded me of what I learned in neurobiology class at school. Air fresheners like Febreeze, Oust, etc. all have nerve-deadening agents in them. Yep. Nerve-deadening agents. What happens is the chemical in the product deadens the nerves/olifactory sensors in your nose that cause you to be able to smell the offending odor - and their CRAZY STRONG perfumed spray is so strong that it's the only thing you can smell anymore. Pretty messed up if you ask me. Dead

^LOL   Ha!  I think it's brilliant.  But I don't think it's necessarily true.  I Googled "how does febreze work" and found something about the chemicals in the product encapsulating the offending odor molecules and preventing them from smelling the place up.  I'm no scientist, and I don't necessarily understand the explanation fully, but I found nothing about any ingredient working on human senses to make us imagine there's no offensive odor.
 
However, another website says that room deodorizers work in four ways (one per product), and that deadening the senses (as your professor stated) is one of 'em.  Another one sounds like the method used with Febreze.
 
So, I guess it depends on the product.
