    Growing up rather poor in a rural Ohio farmhouse without running water I subscribed to the once-a-week bathing regimen. Later in life living in the tropic climes of SEAsia I got used to showering 2-3 times a day. If there is a significant health...

    I agree. My daily showers - and occasionally I'd skip a few - were not just about cleanliness but were restorative to my spirit. And shower etiquette - length of time, waiting one's turn, leaving a space cleaner than how you found it, etc - is...
