> Put on some deodorant, shower every other day and this guy could cut down his risk massively

Yeah, if by "massively" you mean he'll only be expected to have a possibly-fatal fall twice instead of five times.

Your post is extremely ignorant. It not only offensively and incorrectly ascribes daily showering to "prissiness" and "obsessiveness" (as if that's the reason I shower every day, instead of, you know, wanting to smell nice, look nice, and feel refreshed), it also claims that this is an American phenomenon (I'm Canadian, and many/most people I know shower daily. The ones I know who don't, smell). It also assumes all people are the same. Personally, I'd feel pretty sorry for your wife if you smell like I do after not showering that morning.

It's no more "bizarre" than the Japanese are bizarre for using those funky toilets with built-in bidets. Cultures may be different. Let them be different without judging, and without projecting.

Canadians are known to be one of the only cultures more prissy than Americans so you entire comment is invalid.
