Now we all know that nerd stereotypes are mostly wrong. Most nerds are not living in their mom’s basements living an isolated lifestyle of video games, Star Trek marathons, and no contact with the vagina. We all know plenty of geeks who have their own homes, watch other television shows, and not only have sex–but even have children. But those who do fit the stereotype are out there. Since we are fast approaching the geek orgy that is DragonCon, we need to address another stereotype: the smelly gamer.
We all make jokes about the con goers who seem to radiate a sentient cloud of foul body odor. We all know about bringing a gas mask into the Gaming Room. We all bitch and moan about your inability to take a shower. Now, I can hear the gamers say that they don’t smell or that do know what soap is and how to use it. The problem is that not smelling will not fix your bad reputation. You must replace the common perception of smelly badly by smelling well. Lucky for you, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is here to help you.
