Lush is a handmade cosmetics company that is known for their  particularly fancy bath bombs.  They also make a massage bar that includes organic adzuki beans which just happen to sprout in the shower. According to the product description

Wiccy Magic Muscles contains a warming blend of cinnamon and peppermint essential oils that are said to stimulate the circulation to warm and loosen up stiff, achy muscles.

This isn't a new problem, it seems like people have been Tweeting about it since at least 2015.

Of course, it's been noted that it isn't really meant for the shower anyway. It's an oil bar after all. That hasn't stopped people from growing new little friends in their shower drains.

For some, the daily routine of a shower is an invigorating start to the day. For one Bostonian, it's only a way to lose the valuable bacteria that live on our body.

Which is why this guy has not showered in a very, very long time.

According to Boing Boing:

Dave Witlock is a practical man. "I have not taken a shower in over 12 years," says the chemical engineer and Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate. "No one did clinical trials on people taking showers every day. So what's the basis for assuming that that is a healthy practice?"

Twice a day, Mr. Witlock applies a live bacteria solution of his own design to his skin. To spread the bacteria to everyone else, he has founded a company called AOBiome and is selling a spray that contains live ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB), called Mother Dirt.

The whole thing sounds like a marketing spot to get people to buy and spray bacteria water all over themselves. Seems like you could just go to a public pool and work on your fitness at the same time.

As for Mr. Witlock, we are only left with many questions. Does he have friends? A significant other? Does he smell terrible? Does the cloud of dust surrounding him at all times make it difficult to mingle at parties?

You do you, Witlock.
