Yeah I hang out at "international students from India's moth balls appreciation club" thats where i smelt the smell

*rolleyes*

I am talking about random desis who give a great big moth ball smell sneak attack when they walk past me, i thought i made that clear on my first post and i didn't say every single desi person smelt that way...

also since it wasn't just one person i just wanted to know what was up with that..

also i didn't start us vs them, it was the person who brought up tongue scraper, blackheads puller or whatever diff kinds of gadgets there are

i know what moth balls are used for, thanks for reiterating.. i just don't understand why they are used for day to day wear?

pehle aise bolna thha na. wld have given a more satisfactory answer thenTongueWink

It was a simple comment, no need to get so worked up

lol. never. but it sure looked like those moth balls had u worked up Wink

btw, what's with this? your comments are simple. others are not?Ouch

and start a "us" vs "them" convo thank you

u started it yourself by framing it in a way as if it looked like a peculiar desi thing. so u have only urself to thank. there!LOL

Sorry must have been me. I was into huffing dichlorobenzene, then the professors introduced me to sharpies.

Btw what is up with the vampire slayers carrying garlic around?

Oh and I just had to ask - are you one of them Wincest people?

  I still use the ulliya and most of my cuz from india have stopped using the ulliya and to tell you that their breath is horribleDead
