Shame on me for posting something on my blog that's off topic. I usually only write about words, books, and kids. Well, maybe this could be considered about words.
I'm talking about the trickle down theory of economics. A while back some politicians said if the top people in society had plenty of money some of that would trickle down to help all the others. Perhaps that's true to some extent. After all, income taxes do help pay for welfare.
Here's a scientific experiment to try out the trickle-down concept.
When you take a shower, use plenty of shampoo and soap on your head, neck, and top of your shoulders, but don't touch the rest of your body at all.
Now do that every time you shower for a year. Then do it for four years. Remember, no tub baths and no exceptions.
Well, perhaps once a year on Christmas or whatever similar holiday you observe you could use the washcloth on your feet and between your legs, but that's all. After all, some rich people do make charitable donations once in a while.
Now, what do you think will be the over all health of your body at the end of the four years?
If anyone actually dares to try this, I'd love to hear how it turns out.
