Alright, I know this has come up before but I've never found a satisfactory answer for it.

I'm a pretty normal, well-adjusted human being. By that I mean when I go out in public, I take a shower and wear nice clothes. Not super nice, but I'll look presentable.

In all my years of wargaming, every single hobby shop I've been too smells like a goddamn piss dungeon. And I moved around the country several times.

It's a theme. A significant portion of people who like these hobbies, for some reason, don't take care of themselves at all. So not only are they socially awkward, but they smell so bad. I hate gaming at my local hobby shop because of this.

We see this come up all over the place. All these conventions REEK of BO and nerds standing around in dirty clothes. What the fuck is the deal with this?! Does anyone actually KNOW why our hobby in particular attracts the nurgle-worshipping crowd?

Something about the adherence of clearly defined rules and such for the actual game attracts those on the autism spectrum.

Its not an absolute but it is contributing whatsit.

The autistic are society inept almost by definition. There are the occasional exemptions but they really are exemptions.

dunno but we had a can of axe and deoderant for people if they stank. A couple of people were kicked from the store because they stank. They got told to shower then they could come back.

Heck I work outside and sweat a lot, and I am fucking embarresed because I smell when I run into the store to grab something cool to drink.

That particular smell is from the urea in average everyday sweat, plus some people are fat enough to worry about urine burns.

It's pretty simple. A lot of the community for this kind of hobby consist of a blend of social outcasts who've given up on impressing anyone, autistic people who don't realize how bad they smell, and people who legitimately cannot smell that sort of thing.

For a few of those people (I myself used to be in the first category until about a year ago and I'm still in the last, long story), it's not simply a neglect thing; they handle actual injuries, infections, etc and make sure it doesn't impact their life. They do it because they think people who base their friends on outward displays and looks and the like are inherently shallow, and if they're unpleasant, than their friends will like them because of who they are, not because they have something they want or are trying to upgrade their social status. I had a friend in this category, he had some major trust issues.

For the larger part, this is something you grow out of when you realize how you need to be in order to get a job and be in society, whether you enjoy being in it or not. But some people manage to get by without doing so, and it persists.

It's kind of sad, but as someone who has anosmia it doesn't bother me as much.

My old FLGS used to be like that. The clique that was friendly with management was a bunch of neck beard autists. Once the owner got fed up of the manager's bullshit he kicked out the fatties as well as the manager. Unfortunately the new manager was a cunt who didn't understand anything /tg/ related and could not put together events at all.

A friend of mine opened a new store across town that is much nicer. Its big, open, and clean. The only problem is this group of smelly faggots that come in and play Vanguard. Even the non regulars complain about them smelling like they haven bathed in a week and playing the same weeb song on their laptop for hours. THE. SAME. SONG.

these, to certain degrees.

Gaming provides a rigid structure for social interaction. You meet up with people who, while they may or not be your friends, are still friendly and willing to engage with you. The rules of social engagement are all laid out in the game you're all playing. It's waaaaay safer than just talking to/partying with people

It's all completely down to what the smeller wants to blame most. We're predisposed through meme to really feel it in the presence of undesirables like unattractive people engaging in an unattractive hobby, and less so to notice and comment on it among higher social standings because better is naturally expected of them. The stench of sweat and beer is more forgivable than sweat and beards.

sorry no. that's like saying it's ok to not cover your mouth when you sneeze/cough, and you shouldn't have to get vaccinated.

Being filthy spreads disease. It's not a social norm. It's that you dont' want to spread ring worm and crabs to other people. It's the same reason you don't steal from people or hit random people on the street for no reason. Social acceptability and not being a dick often cross paths.

The real reason is that these fucks are lazy and hedonistic, and don't want to waste 15 minutes of their day cleaning themselves to interrupt their precious game time. it's a selfishness, a narcissism, not the inability to read social cues.

Only one of these guys seems to really get it: it's not because they're autists, or slobs. It's because they're fat. What stinks isn't really sweat — that's just salt water, like tears. What stinks is the bacteria getting in there. Fat people have folds and crevices where bacteria thrive and that are hard to clean.

The human nose gets habituated to smells it has around it constantly. You literally can't smell something you're always smelling.

There are two folds: one of the belly overhanging the penis, one below the penis as a bulge of the groin. To properly piss, a very obese man must squat (preferably over a Japanese-style toilet, as American ones don't leave much room to do it), lean forward, and use both hands, one for the top fold and one for the bottom fold. This is rather exhausting to do. Note that fat people have more fluid to process (they even have larger kidneys!) because of the increased body mass, and must urinate more than you do.

>>40947755
It takes a considerable amount of flexibility to get all of it, as a very obese person must reach around the fat to get into the crevice, and their arm is also fat.

All in all, an obese person's bathroom break takes a lot longer than a normal person, so it isn't surprising that they're willing to take shortcuts. Consider the lack of care for your body that is necessary to get that fat in the first place!

Right, but it's important to emphasize also that most of these guys aren't exactly slobs -- they genuinely don't know how bad they smell. They live in that stench, so they don't notice it, not on themselves and not on others. It's just a byproduct of being fat and not being really, really careful about your hygiene (or living with someone else who'll tell you when you reek, which, fat chance, for MtG fatbeards).

But when you come see me in my white blouse and have questions about your health, I AM going to mention the fact you are weighing a ton if the disease is tied to it and newflash, most diseases are. Especially things that have to do with inflammation.

But I got flamed so hard on facebook when i complained about it once, and by a few real life tumblrinas, that I'm very careful about it now.

1. You can be allergic to anything, including weed

My mom's a doc, and you really have to watch out these days about patients fucking suing you for the tiniest things. They routinely get people that actually threaten the staff, and then have the gall to complain about their treatment. And no suprise, most of those fuckstains are immigrants who WILL pull the race card when they can.

Meanwhile patients have no problem talking shit about you. They keep shitty little blogs and think the doctors won't find them. Yeah, good luck getting respect from your doc after he found out you said he "looks like a bum" on your shitty blog.

Long story short, people are fucking entitled these days, and it makes working as a doc hard.

Your body has a need for inflammation to defend itself and then a mechanism to shut it off naturally.
Normally, if all goes well, you're in equilibrium, you can picture it like scales in good balance. Obesity and a lot of the foods that bring on obesity will add weights in the "inflammation" scale. Stuff like saturated fats or a diet high in fast sugars (mostly the latter actually) are damaging and push your body towards inflammatory response. When you are already struggling with an underlying disease that has an inflammatory component, it makes things worse.
Obesity is not just the weight, there are also a lot of things that go with it derailing in the body, like cholesterol being too high (thus making a lot more of the molecules in your body that signal inflammation), fat around your kidney and organs also has an effect that pushes inflammation further, your sugar levels usually start to deregulate. Your heart has to work more. Your natural immunity goes down. It basically fucks you up pretty good.

Early 1900s, especially in small towns with only 1 or 2 doctors for the entire place.
If a doctor saved a few people or solved a disease mystery and helped a town get through it, they were basically god to those people until he messed up. If he told them "don't drink that it's bad for you" they would throw it in the trash. If he told them "this bottle of medicine will make you dance even though you're paralyzed" they would believe him until it didn't work.
The problem is that now the internet is a thing. People can research everything in moments from diets to alternative treatments, and no matter how false those things actually are, they do a very good job of making doctors "who just want you to get surgery and buy pills" sound like devil worshippers.
And so people stopped caring what their doctor thinks because they already looked up everything he said on google, what new shit can he possibly tell them that google can't? He's just there to give me an xray and the pain meds I want. And if those meds make me feel sick, I'm suing him.

As one can observe from the people going back and forth about drugs in this thread, most of the traditional-games sect interacts so rarely with other human beings, that they simply have missed the cultural mores that inform our decision to smell snazzy. And unfortunately, as their stink turns away others who might tell them to bathe, it turns out that they just never really learn and go on thinking that everything's hunky-dory.

I personally just don't understand it. Sure, there are some days where I opt not to shower, but those also tend to be days where I'm either in a rush to get out the door, or I don't think I'll wind up going anywhere. Things hosted at game shops tend to occur weekly, so it's usually at the same time and same place. These people have the foreknowledge to think, "oh, I should probably shower and do a load of laundry in time." It's not like, say, FNM juuuuust snuck up on you. Or even fucking worse--gaming conventions. Hotels are stuffed to the brim with free soaps and shit, so there's absolutely no reason for everyone at these things to smell like horseshit.

I've seen the people you're talking about, OP. And I don't get it, either. How can anyone live like that?

Thankfully I've found a gaming store where the crowd is much better than that. The owners all have real other jobs and are involved in the community, so they all take pretty good care of themselves, hygiene and grooming-wise. The worst I see in the customer base is some unkempt facial hair, and even that falls short of the terrible neckbeard. Nobody comes in wearing clothes that are falling apart or reeking of body odor. The bearable-to-good crowds are one of my main reasons for frequenting the store, honestly.

Ecological reasons:
- lots of deforestation is done to grow stuff that will feed cattle
- meat industry itself is a very polluting industry (methane gasses from cow farts are just one example)

Health:
- animals are kept in such close quarters that it is impossible to keep that kind of factory farming without high use of antibiotics. constant low levels of them are tolerated in some countries, leading to antibiotic resistance. We might one day see stuff we used to be able to kill take down populations again

First, some context.

The game was Warmahordes and we agreed to a 'friendly' game, and I anticipated as much until he told me he was using E.Lilith, a screaming bitch of a Warlock to fight against. I start expecting his A-game and make my Brisbane Beatdown list.

Then we actually play and I table him in three turns, him using his army in self-defeating way and making a lot of boneheaded decisions that I just took advantage of. He barely had any ranged units and I just blasted down his forces with a murdery gunline.

I ask why he and his friends use melee when ranged units would really have benefitted him and they all go 'if we wanted to use guns we would play infinity.

I drink at least a litre of cola or similar a day, if I can afford it, and I have a lot of pasta, pizza, noodles, and fries (home-made or store bought, not mcdonalds).
I generally sit around in the same spot for 6 - 14 hour periods, then go to bed for 4 - 12 hour periods, and do no physical exercise or real periods of activity, so I've gotten quite a pot-belly recently.
I play stress-intensive games a lot, and I think I've become a bit of an adrenaline addict, though I at least do hand and wrist stretches because fuck carpal tunnel and similar. I usually have one or two antacids a day, for week long stretches, from acid reflux (probably bad diet related).

And to top it off, I don't remember the last time I had a general checkup of any sort was, and (due to my lax lifestyle) I haven't 'needed' to go to hospital or a GP for at least 7 or more years.

I'm very much an 'immediate reward' person, and have never been physically active ever, even before I got a computer (I was a lego kid), so it's only ever in moments of lucid hindsight that I realize how actively I shorten my own lifespan.

Now you want to talk about disgusting Cat Piss Trolls; Anime Fans.

My FLGS had an anime club that would meet in one of the rooms, They were perfect spergstorms. Loud, obnoxious, smelly, disruptive and destructive. They would meet on Fridays and between showings of One Piss, or whatever, would orbit the store in a whirling, giggling, everything-touching, isle-wrecking spergnado and never bought anything. They had a troll's sense of hygene, and we had to air out the room they used overnight before anyone could stand to be in there for more than a few minutes at a time.

This was tolerated because the organizer was good friends with the owner, who gave numerous warnings to the anime club's organizer. It was kind of sad, you could hear him at the start of every meeting begging them to behave, they just laughed it off.

Finally, the anime club got the boot. Mostly at the insistence of wargamers who were sick of their shit.

Your reflux can be a result from the diet but also from long periods sitting hunched over and the cola and fatty foods just worsen it.

Or of feeling smart or capable enough of doing great things, but not being able to do a bit of jogging for your health, let alone any 'smart' or 'great' things.

My old FLGS had a small backroom where people played MTG and WH40K. There was one guy who practically lived there, 400lbs. On hot days he would start sweating just from the walk from his car to the shop. Unwiped feces in his buttcrack would combine with the sweat and create a thick cloud of sweaty ass smell.

Why are people like this?

What you use is odorless anti-perspirant.

There exists two types of deoderants, those that stop the smell from existing, and the shitty ones that mask it with perfume.

Because when you are 400lbs, there is about 200lbs of you in the way of yourself. It's like having a second person in the way ALL THE TIME. You can't reach your ass to wipe! You can't clean yourself well either as you #2 saps all your energy and motivation because you can't actually reach anywhere, or get between every fold, or even maintain the effort to even try.

And they can't even save themselves from you #2. He keeps them from exercising because everything hurts, they can hardly walk, let alone get 30 minutes of cardio. After a while they can't even aquacize because it is too hard to climb in and out of the pool.

Fitness, grooming, eating habits, and good habits to get into. General information spread is probably good, such as what key problems are, their causes, and their solutions (e.g, sweat doesn't smell so much as the bacteria that eats it, and hair holds the sweat and bacteria really well. Hairy armpits are much stinkier, and tougher to properly wash out, because of this).

Because we are the minority. Normalfags are not the average denizen of /tg/ hobbies.

Also, you have a perfect storm that causes this:

- Predominately white/European descent, which means higher chance of a stronger body odor compared to, say, Asians
- Predominately male, which reduces chance of them smelling good, like most women do
- Predominately unfit, which means if they don't care enough to work out, they have higher chance of not caring about hygiene or smelling good
- Deoderant/cologne being very rarely used by this segment of the population

Of course if you have a bunch of white, overweight, unhygienic slobs it's going to stink up the place.

And before any white people get upset, it's not about the race, it's about genetics. Other races that tend to sweat more also smell bad if they become overweight or don't shower.

Cookfag here. Factory farm meat i.e. the only thing you are likely to find in most American supermarkets is absolutely bad for you. Health regulations have improved, but the amount of drugs and hormones that get pumped into the animals only makes factory farm meat a different kind of awful compared to what Upton Sinclair wrote about in The Jungle. Cut it out of your diet as much as you possibly can.

That said, if you live in an area where you have access to farmers markets or a decent butcher it is possible to get good quality meat. Lots of farms in my area do special tour/dinners where they show you around the farm for a bit then kill, butcher and roast a pig on site. In America good meat is more expensive by a fair amount but you get what you pay for.

this, you gotta scrub under every fold. I also recommend putting deodorant under your folds to provide protection from that shit. And if you clean regularly, you will get less habituated to foul smells so when you start to stink it becomes more prominent.

It's a bit more work then if your skinny, but the people around you will be grateful for keeping yourself fucking clean.

Also, shave! FUCKING SHAVE! I don't get care if you look like a goddamn marshmallow under all that facial hair, shave it! Keep your beard neat, comb it if it's a bit long, just do something with it so it doesn't become matted and smell like death.
