All these questions were answered on the famous social site Reddit! Read on to check the inquisitive questions that were asked to this man.
Reddit User: Why Did You Do It?
His Reply: "Well, I live in a hostel and am lazy. You see, a bath for me is more like a chore here. Since the shower only spews cold water in an incredibly narrow column, I have to fill bucket(s) of hot water from a faucet outside the room. I also tend to think "I might as well wash some clothes while I'm bathing" since I could save some laundry money while doing so. It seems like too much work."
Reddit User: How Did You Go Through This With Only Two Underpants?
His Reply: "Initially, I started out with 5 pairs of underwear, of which one got lost in transit, one was so tattered with holes, I was embarrassed to hang it to dry in my room. one was worn out beyond use (the elastic has begun to show and not hold). So I was left with only two. I usually wore a pair for a week- or until the stench had become overpowering or the stains and moisture felt gross. Then I inverted it and wore it for another week."
Reddit User: 33 Days Must Have Meant A Lot Of Bad Odour! How Did You Deal With That?
His Reply: "I soaped my pits every 3-4 days or so. Baking soda and hand sanitizer are an excellent anti-BO agent. They can keep me BO-free for about 6-7 hours. Couple that with deodorant, and was good to go for the entire day."
Reddit User: Did You Jerk Off During That Time? If It Is A Yes, Then
How Did You Manage To Clean It Without Bathing?
His Reply: "I am a nofap champion."
Reddit User: Did You Feel Anything Crawling On Your Skin Or Itching, Also What About Oily Hair?
His Reply: "There was a little itching on some parts like elbow region. What I noticed, more was the increased friction on my skin from all the oil and muck. I was basically covered in a layer of dirt. About the oily hair, I did wash my hair around the day 18th mark, but I did have a lot of dandruff which I got rid of quite a bit by combing regularly."
Reddit User: You Live In Coastal Southern Karnataka And Didn’t Take A Bath For So Long? (The weather is so humid that people take bath twice a day with cold water)
His Reply: "I guess that's what makes this AMA special."
Reddit User: What Motivated You To Bathe Yourself On The 34th Day?
His Reply: "I was living in a hostel and went back home on day 34."
Reddit User: How Did Your Parents Take It When You Told Them?
His Reply: "When I went back home, my mom refused to speak to me until I had a haircut and shower."
Reddit User: And How Did You Feel After Finally Taking A Bath On The 34th Day?
His Reply: "When I came out, my skin was a shade or two lighter. While scrubbing all over with a new pumice stone I had, I saw there was a layer of dirt in some parts which was millimeters thick. You actually feel a little lighter. Your skin is more sensitive than usual. Things that touch you feel a bit stronger."
Whatever be the reason, we only wonder how this guy could stay without taking a shower for so LONGG!!!
