Why does Kaus repeatedly touch his face, and neck?

Back to Charm School, both of them.

I noticed Althouse repeatedly touching her face when watching TV.

What's going on, with all the self face-touching etc? Repeatedly touching one's face with hands, spreads germs and causes acne blemishes.

Doesn't anyone care about their complexion anymore?

Peace, Maxine

No it doesn't. Neither does chocolate or masturbation.

Wow - was that ever prophetic! Although I didn't get what being blonde had to do with it...

Roger said...

Joe--thank heavens on all three counts!

Maxine Weiss said...

Hey Everyone: Let's diagnose that visible blemish atop Kaus's deep forehead--

a) actinic keratosis
b) non-malignant melanoma
c) acne vulgaris

I vote for "c"......acne.

You can just look at a guy like Kaus, (the huge Adam's apple, the dark caveman facial hair--coming through---despite having shaved 5 minutes ago, the baldness etc etc.)

Yeah, that Kaus is the kinda guy that you just know had a wicked acne problem as a teenager. All kinds of pits and scarring no doubt.

The kind of guy (Kaus) that probably produced sebum by the buckets, and perhaps still does.

Yes, that's right, I can simply look at a guy, and tell right then and there the amount of sebum he produced as an acne-laden teenager!

Peace, Maxine

Maxine, if your intent is to nauseate, you have succeeded.

I still recall the lab work on a cyst I once had removed: Subcutaneous cyst filled with cheesy amorphous material. Bleah.

So, Bob W wants an "ill advised outburst" from Ann. OK, Bob. Let's hope not. That format -- Hardball (or was it Hardline?), Crossfire, all of those "insult-and-talk-over-each-other" debate shows -- has been dead and should have been buried years ago. Nothing about it would make its resurrection an event to anticipate.

Maxine Weiss said...

Madison Man: Yes, but the question is---did you willingly go on video to gleefully exhibit it for all the world to see?

I've never seen anyone take such pride in their blemishes quite the way Kaus does.

Peace, Maxine

ASX said...

Oh, Ann . . .

Are you still maintaining that you were "provoked" by Garance?

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Joe: Maxine was right about the excess touching of face causing something called "contact acne."

Simply touching the face can also make acne become worse. It is a difficult habit to overcome -- most of us touch our faces repeatedly throughout the day. The problem for acne sufferers is that the hands also contain oils and bacteria which will exacerbate acne symptoms. In fact, all objects that come into contact with the face must be clean. This includes eyeglasses and telephone handsets.

If the oiliness/acne is in the T-zone [across the forehead, down the nose to the chin], then it is most likely regular acne. If the oiliness is in the U-zone [under the ear, across jawline, up to other ear], then it is most likely contact acne.

WhatsAPundit said...

Well, ASX, in my humble opinion there was a whole subtext of "why did you start carrying water for Republican fascists" in Garance's questions.

Whether you see that as a legitimate question or not probably influences how you reacted to Ann's reaction.

You know, I'm sympathetic to men, and how difficult it is to be a man in today's society. Women get away with murder, and men are blamed for it.

But someone like Kaus isn't helping his case any, what with all those bizarre facial contortions and the whole "caveman" (Neanderthal) vibe he gives off. Go to 1:18 and look at how Kaus scrunches up his face.

Kaus makes more faces, and facial scrunching, than Nancy Pelosi at a State of the Union address.

Kaus's worst sin, though, (and this is bordering on EVIL) is when he drinks from a coca-cola can, and then swishes around the cola in his mouth before swallowing.

????????

Who in their right mind uses COLA as a mouthwash ???

Lock him up and throw away the key on that alone.

I'm serious. I don't know where that was in the tape, but Kaus does that. He actually swigs, swishes the cola around as if it were mouthwash !!!!!

That's just plain stupid. Plus, of course Kaus doesn't drink "diet coke" oh no no no no. Too faggy. Naturally it has to be regular Coca-cola.

And you just know, chicks are so twisted these days, they'll dig that kind of thing.

I'm sure a priapic guy like Kaus gets plenty of action.

Robert Wright's fresh-scrubbed, choir-boy sort of aura won't yield nothin'.

It's the wife-beater/caveman look that makes Gals swoon, these days.

That's how twisted things have become.

Peace, Maxine

Yep, good thing Annie does not actually run our foriegn policy because we'd be attacking allies right and left out of a false sense that we had been "attacked" and "provoked" first.

Your skin is actually incredibly thin for someone who claims to have thick skin.

What kind of feeble mind compares defending yourself from a cheap shot on a video conference to using military force against our allies over a misunderstanding?

You guys are really reaching. And you sound as retarded as Garance's "they hate you because you hate them for hating you".

Here's a tip, lady: the only person who's a bigger joke on the internet than you is Kaus.

You can just smell the desperation oozing from Blithering Misogynist Idiot's pores, can't you?

Eli Blake said...

Here is one that nobody saw coming (but maybe should have):

Remember when they had the story from Texas about the man who was arrested for murder after finding his wife having sex with another man and shot the guy?

Well, today the grand jury returned an indictment for manslaughter: against his wife while refusing to indict him for anything. Apparently she had tried to mislead her husband about the nature of the affair and screamed, 'rape!' and even though her lover was driving away in his vehicle the grand jury decided that the husband was justified in firing at him as he left. The wife, who was not arrested at the time and was never mentioned as a suspect in any crime, could face two to twenty years.

That would appear to be the correct decision, based on the facts available in the article.

Poor AJD is trying to "provoke" me.

"Your skin is actually incredibly thin for someone who claims to have thick skin."

It's all relative. You should have seen me before. Anyway, thick or think, it's in very good condition, though possibly not good enough for Maxine.

As for touching my face, watch for me to touch my right cheek with my right index finger. It's my tell.

dave™© said..."Here's a tip, lady: the only person who's a bigger joke on the internet than you is Kaus."

I love Kaus. (It's that caveman vibe.)

"You can just smell the desperation oozing from Blithering Misogynist Idiot's pores, can't you?"

Now, dave. Maxine's in charge of the pores today.

Maxine: I'm trying to eat a salad here (in Wichita) and you're making me want to throw up. Buckets of sebum? That's so gross.

Hello, Pot! This is Kettle. You're black.

"As for touching my face, watch for me to touch my right cheek with my right index finger. It's my tell."

Yeah. I think we got that.;)

(Why does it feel like I'm the only one who's seen that look enough times to recognize a lit fuse? Am I really the only guy who's actually pissed a woman off that much that I've seen that look before? LOL.)

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Simon: You're just one of very few who will admit it in such a public forum.

Simon said...

RAA - Wha...? I said that out loud? Well, I guess it's not the first time I've accidentally thought out loud in comments (cue Family Guy-esque cutaway to comments passim). ;)
