It also emerged Wednesday that Paddock was prescribed 50 10-milligram tablets of diazepam

That's news to me.  From my understanding, Doctors are reluctant to prescribe diazepam because the legit uses for it are usually better treated with other meds.  Diazepam was used to treat severe anxiety or insomnia on a short-term basis (2-4 weeks), but there are better meds for each of those issues now.  Diazepam is excellent at killing a bad trip from drugs like shrooms or LSD.

Makeup is full of fragrance. My blush smells like roses, my primer smells like orange creamsicle, my lipstick smells like mint, etc. Plus, if he is allergic to fragrance, he's probably sensitive to a lot of cosmetic ingredients.

It's a legit condition, I know several people with varying degrees of chemical sensitivities to cleaning compounds, from light rashes to full blown lobster skin.

"If" he was. It's easy to SAY you're allergic to stuff, because how is someone really going to know? So some people claim to be allergic to all sorts of stuff in order to bully people around them into doing things.

I'm allergic to all sorts of stuff myself (professionally tested, mostly pollens and molds) - but when someone claims to be allergic to whole vague classes of things like "fragrances and cleaning chemicals" my BS detector instantly lights up. Because there's about a jillion different chemicals that are different in the different types/brands/formulations and things, so being allergic to ALL of them makes little sense. And it just usually seems more likely to me the person is either a hypochondriac or is playing the game, using a supposed allergy to get their way.

And this is how stereotypes and racism starts.  Find something unusual or different and latch onto it.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that he no longer felt important to his gambling community because of a loss or something and this is how he chose to regain relavance.

Yep, I have a coworker with some freaky contact allergies. He can't even use most types of soap or hand cleaner without breaking out.

Should I discreetly check how many guns he's purchased in the last year?

Here's the problem with that:  no two cosmetic companies use the same chemical formula.  So yes, you kind of have to do a broad stroke classification of "makeup" for allergies, unless you know exactly which chemical composition you are specifically reacting to.   I am sensitive to most fragrances, some cleaning solutions and very allergic to others.  It's easier just to say "fragrance".

Casinos greatly heighten my desire for hand sanitizer.  Never done a cruise so casinos are as close to viral breeding ground as I get.

When I used to cover court cases, there was a court reporter who was seriously allegic to floral-scented perfumes. The judge would tell attorneys, witnesses, jurors and anyone else who might be in the courtroom not to wear it.

Of course, she hasn't killed anybody over it, as far as I know.
