How to Survive a Plucking
« on: November 19, 2012, 05:53:52 PM »
I just want to preserve the Mutio Momentum -- for a moment.

Andy told us we could go pluck ourselves if we so chose and I think we ought to chat about that.

And hey, is Mutio on the cutting edge of hair? Are we being closed-minded?

This might be the answer to that other thread asking about the cure.  I'm gonna try it as an experiment.  Though I'm gonna have a bit of a hard time plucking certain nether regions.  That's gon' hurt like hell.

Hell, should we just write a protocol and call up the biggest tweezer manufacturers in the world and see if we can get some funding? We could do our own research. Criteria - must have hair; must be willing to pluck one's self or be plucked by someone else; ability to count and record numbers of hairs plucked; do we want proof of plucking?:to be discussed. Must correlate time of plucking to time of latest labs and note any changes.

What else?

All plucked hair (including pubes) will be donated to a charity of the pluckee's choice.

Dingleberries are not gonna be in season for Sangivi.  Wait till baby Jeebus birthday to make that delicacy.

It's from a thread I deleted that was started by some plucked-up nut-job who decided he knew how to cure hiv.


Hello, first of, i am not hiv positive. I am aware that many of you will think that what i am bout to write here is false information, however if i have it, and do not share it with the people who need it, or try to help them in any way i myself will feel guilty. So   i was shown someone who knew that might work but different misfortunes kept him from telling people. It is very simple and doesn't cost almost anything. You simply have to epilate or remove your body hairs. That way when the whole hair is pulled out, including the root you get the protein synthesis from growing a new hair, which is the cornerstone of as i heard all of the ways to try curing it. It's worth the shot anyway! Good luck good people!


When I deleted the thread, I hadn't realised someone started a new thread here in OT (the original was in Living) to make fun of the little plucker. ~sigh~ Sorry folks!

Now I see the humor in it all  :o  Glad I have my vanity make-up mirror so I can finish my facial plucking.  Perhaps there's some truth to it as I've been waxing for years and really should have been thrown out with the trash by now.

well, i know you can live pluck a goose, but only right before the molt. and they really do not appreciate, it is a violent event. geese are not pleasant and cuddle as some people think. at the chicken plant, they just hang the birds on a moving line by their feet, they pass a wheel that whacks their heads off, then off to a washing machine type thing that plucks em. the heads go to the dog food plant. fido thanks you

i shaved all the hair on my body a few days ago. does this mean i don't have teh aidsey anymore?
