Almost Lunch Time.

Taken yesterday at work. The details: here.

Look at the picture and take a deep breath. Okay, now:


The modern formulation of the antiperspirant was patented by Jules Montenier on January 28, 1941. This patent solved the problem of the excessive acidity of aluminium chloride and its excessive irritation of the skin, by combining it with a soluble nitrile or a similar compound. This formulation was first found in "Stopette" deodorant spray, which Time Magazine called "the best-selling deodorant of the early 1950s". "Stopette" gained its prominence as the first and long-time sponsor of the game show What's My Line?, and was later eclipsed by many other brands as the 1941 patent expired.

Happy Belated Labor Day!

I think there is a time traveler there. The fourth person, the angry looking young man, on the left row. He is dressed as if in 2008.

In general, their resentful looks at the camera seem to suggest that they felt as the Native Americans did (still do?)--you are stealing my soul. And here we are discussing them, so perhaps some truth to that.
