The title says it all. For me, I think it's three days. Back then when I was really sick with fever, my mother would not let me shower until I got better.

Other than that, occasionally I took a break from showering daily if I had to undergo gua-sha. Usually, after performing gua-sha on someone else, or being gua-sha-ed by other people, you are strongly discouraged from taking a shower.

Now that it's winter season again, I decide to skip shower once every few weeks but I cannot do so. I feel terrible without shower. So I still shower/bath everyday.

So that's me. What about you? :amuse

Five days. Went to camp up north to Exmouth, Western Australia, and didn't shower once. xDD But... Does swimming count as showering??

>__< I don't think swimming counts as showering. Swimming makes my body feels like clorine. Yuck.

Plus, it doesn't require any body shampoo, hair shampoo (it actually destroy my hair), or soap. So it doesn't count.

Hmm, my hair is extremely thin & gets oily really quickly so I have to shower every single day. But before the oiliness brought on by puberty, the longest I went was 3 days when I was in elementary school. No one seemed to notice...

I take it that you do not cheat on your country flag. So taking into account that you are from The Philippines, I will not even blame you for taking shower 3 times a day. It does get oily REALLY quickly especially in hot weather condition.

one week for me. back in vail. in the middle of my august vacation (year round school, my track had August, December, and April off) and my parents wouldn't let me go over to the saguaro national park (the only good place in 15 miles to skate), so i went on strike. biking outside, in the middle of a 105-112 degree heatwave, just to make myself as smelly as possible XD I'm actually surprised they lasted that long. (that is to say they let me go to the park, and i started bathing again.)

Haha, yes you're right. I normally take showers once a day but during the summer it usually goes to 2 -3 times a day. :D

But the thing is, I kinda did cheat on my flag. I was born & raised in Southern California and have only been to the Philippines a few times when I was young. But I did notice that Filipinos usually have thin hair that gets oily in... a minute.

What a genius idea. :nuts

We should ask all Americans to stop showering and gather in front of the white house until Bush retires immediately. Or Americans can have anti-shower rally to campaign for AIDS donation for example.

"Until you send medicines and money to Africa, we will not shower." Imagine the stink of 100k people who do not shower for a week. Wow.

rabb
December 20, 2007, 03:17 AM
while i think that, with help from micheal moore, it is possible... it wouldnt work. two basic flaws in it: the white house is air conditioned, and protected from chemicle attacks, so the smell prolly wouldn't make it threw. the other thing... cheny would be hidden away in a bunker, rice is prolly back on the homeworld of the klingons, and bush will be on vacation again. and just for the record, since i dont talk to you, i'm american born and raised. i just love swaziland's name.

about 3 and a half days. i hate to travel from the US to the philippines which is about 2 and a half days. because of the stupid flight delays and long stopovers. :rant once in the philippines it was really late already and i was really tired so i slept and didn't get to take a shower til the next day.

Lots of travelling... very tired :( and no shower :scry

A week. It's so happens that one day the bathroom in the place that I stay (my relative's house) got many maggots lurked. I don't know how the hell that might happened, and I hate maggots. They creeps me out. So I stayed away from the bathroom until the maggots all cleared. I still washed my face and brushed my teeth outside though (got extra spare) so people may not notice that I didn't take a bath for a week. :p

This topic is so interesting. :XD
The longest i've been without showering was 2 weeks. It was back in high school during the long holiday, my friends and i made a bet who could stand not showering the longest. Of course, there was money involved, but it's not the money, it's knowing that you can do something that your friends couldnt is the main motivation.
I won because the last guy got into an argument with his girlfriend about that bet. :XD
I feel so icky remembering the shower i took after winning that money. :XD :XD :XD

Um...two days, but because we were camping and at the there were swarms of ants all over the floor. It didn't go to well with me even with shoes on...So I went without for a couple days..
But now I just HAVE to shower EVERY day.

1 week during a assignment abroad.....we could only wash us with a bucket full of water because water supply wasnt working. And imagine how it smelled if you sleep with 20 men in a tent which are not showering for a week and make physical hard work. Thank god it wasnt very hot at this time :D

A week due to fever.
Also, 3 days due to laziness.

I think it's around 5 or 7 days for my part, when I fansub or do scantrad I can completely lose the notion of time. When I "wake up" I'm like : Beuhh something's stinking in the room....

*Snif, snif* Beuh it's me ! Emergency shower now.

So you go out of the room, meet the colodger hey ! Long time no see ! What's the day today ? The date ?

And then you realize for how long you didn't took a shower...

Long life to a fansubber / scantrader life...

9 Days while playing paintball in the Catskills. Me and bunch of people did a Terrorist vs. Navy Seal game that lasted far too long. I got about 10 hours of sleep the entire time, and it was the most nerve racking yet fun experience of my life. I NEVER want to do it again.

2 weeks i think u___u

in the first week i had no school so i was tooo lazy to take a bath
i was just sitting on my couch...the whole time and there was no time to take neither a shower nor a bath :XD

after this week i went to poland to my grandparents and when i arrived,after i was grilled in our hot car i finnaly decided to take a shower or a nice bath,but unfortunatly my grandparents are living in a village,so from times to times they have no water there and that was the case back then
no water=no shower=no bath-_-;
and we were there for about a week,soo in the end there were two weeks:amuse

Hmm, for me, the longest I have not taken a bath is 10 days. I was doing my military service. The only thing my superiors allow are powder baths. I almost had fungi growing on my soles for wearing wet boots throughout the whole exercise.......

July 07, 2009, 02:42 PM
Hmm... Think it was six or seven days when i was in South Africa... me and my friend never bothered showering b/c they (the family we stayed at) had this HUGE pool, biggest i've seen in a garden so we just took 2-3swims / day... That went for our whole stay there.. But apart from those days I did shower regularly...I think it was valentines day ball on the like sixth day from showering so i took like a 40mins shower ONLY to wash my hair and using a lot of products (MANLY) because my hair is kinda thick and i'm normally very careful with the washing part and always do it regularly or else it'll get oily... so it was kind of a mess...

I looked good though ^^

Arrogance
July 18, 2009, 03:30 AM
lol, this is where things get interesting. For me under regular circumstances I haven't showered for like a day or two just because of laziness. Now when I had my knee surgery, I didn't shower for like 4 days only because I couldn't move to get to the bathroom. Then when I finally did make my way to the bathroom to shower, I couldn't shower my full body because my leg was tightly wrapped in bandages and placed in a very large brace. So I went for like 2 weeks without showering off my leg. :p. It really sucked a lot, lol.

taking showers or bathing too often is unhealthy. if someone has a hard work or trains a lot, it's ok to shower 2 times a day. your skin dries out and it's bad for the hair, too.

yeah it is,belisar is right
it harms your skin,so actually 3 showers a day(wtf?) is a bit too much^^'
i guess taking showers every 3 days should be fine,though sometimes you have to take an additional shower because of a date or something,but that's something different...

2-3 days, This happen 4 years ago when North Carolina was hit by an ice storm. It was the worst storm in N.C.s history and cause the most damage I believe. The freezing rain would build up on the branches and break off falling on powerlines causing mass power outages. Millions of people were left in the dark for 2-4 weeks and I was lucky enough to be saved early.

A week and a half (six years ago)- I had Vincent's Angina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necrotizing_ulcerative_gingivitis) for two weeks. Couldn't shower for a week, couldn't eat solids for two weeks, and couldn't eat anything hard for another month. This happened during the christmas season, so instead of gaining christmas weight, I lost weight.

Almost 3 months. It's disgusting as a girl, but I don't care. I don't like taking showers for some reason. Also, it was summer vacation. What's the use of taking showers when you're just gonna get sweaty again? I finally took a very long shower two days before school started. If you think about it, it's actually quite sensible. This, I think, was the summer vacation before 8th grade.

@ Jin Haha! That was funny! Actually, I didn't feel dirty at all...except for a major sticky-ness. And yes, that shower was the best I've ever had and I think it turned a little, I don't know, gray-ish. Heh heh.

@ Googlez I think I'm going to break my record, too, this summer! I hope not, because it's disgusting but I don't mind being lazy, like I always am. I think that at the least, I'll be able to get a couple of weeks or two months in. We'll see.

longest time without a shower... hmmm... I was in the military... so I'll have to remember my longest field ops... I'm thinking 4 weeks... it was a Fort Bragg firing exercise where I was constantly moving around uneffing up all the problems that people tend to cause when they screw with radios that they're using to transfer data... it sucked... I got to shower the day before we left... luckily I had a fresh change of close saved for when I showered (you're suppose to get at least one shower half way through I missed it thanks to bravo battery and they just got gassed by CS... it was horrible)

Probably three days, as a kid in the summer when there wasn't anything to shower for.
