    Poll is bad. What if you have PV? Or get your power from primarily Hydro or Nuclear?

    Re: Question for warmer women

    Everyone in our house does their own laundry. My wife will sometimes do mine for me, but by and large we're all responsible for doing our own laundry and we use an electric dryer - our local power is generated by fossil fuels.
    When I was a kid we my mom hung the laundry by a clothesline that stretched from her bedroom window to the telephone pole in our backyard. I don't have a convenient place for a line in the yard and even if I did I'd still use the dryer, it's just easier.
    Actually afaik no one around here hangs their clothes on lines.

    Yeah it's wasteful but I make up for it a little by not really using the car all that much. Between my wife and I combined we average about 50 miles/week driving.

    More likely you ASS-ume... in highly urban areas the room for and privacy issue becomes important. Many neighborhoods/high density buildings ban clothes lines. Now when we first moved to the country we used a clothes line for almost everything (women can be a bit odd about their unders out waving in the breeze. Our teen-aged daughter didn't want all the kids on the bus seeing her unders out there, damn sure didn't want the boys seeing her MOM'S ) These days with the many years of drought, not so much, the laundry gets a good dusting that you smell on your clothes and sheets.

    It would appear retirement has some thinking of smirky things to bring to the rest of us... perhaps there is some truth to the old saying- 'idle hands are the Devil's playmates'.

    I suppose 'real' women are those who are at home long enough during the day to hang laundry to dry vs those who have a job during the sunny hours. Maybe 'real' women are those who live in Appalachia out beyond the power lines.

    Course to an old coot laying in his hammock the amount of energy a dryer uses may seem large, others may see the use of single occupant vehicles clogging the highways everyday to haul office workers to and fro the cities they fled as a far bigger 'warmer' issue. Perspective....

    Re: Question for warmer women

    I thought warm women was code for big women.

    It would be interesting to see if women believe in climate change more then men though.

    Probably not so clean after the panty fetishist thief got done with them.

    ...and yet, sawyer decides to single out only females who use a freaking clothes driers? Men use them too, along with all the other things I've listed.

    Just another one of sawyer's "women are bad because [fill in the blank]" threads. Nothing to see here. Move along.

    The thing is, fabric softeners build up on the fabric over time. And it ****s up your towels.

    Fluff them in the dryer on low heat.

    And don't dry them on the line in the full mid-day sun. Overcast and windy is much better.

    Two questions?

    1) What the heck is a 'warmer woman'?

    2) And why is this question directed only at women?

    Is this 1950? Do men not dry their own clothes?

    I don't have a clothes line or any where to put one. So no.

    I don't even want to know what the panty thief does with the panties.
