    And if you squint in contact lenses, it goes back to Monroe...


    What size screen or what diagonal at what distance should be used to correctly administer this test?

    Computer?

    Wow I think I had one of those in the 90s. Ran something called Windows and crashed a lot, iirc?

    Do I buy a used Carvin 8 string, or build the 8 string I want. The Carvin is instant gratification, but building one would be fun.

    Ha, another wet shaving enthusiast! My wife already calls me crazy for trying out a variety of blades ;)
    I'm currently using the Speick Active Soap and it's good, not great. Another first world problem: actually emptying a shaving soap.
    Next on is gonna be a soap from Klar.

    I have been using the same shaving soap for like at least 3 or 4 years now, and I'm not even 1/4 way through it. I'm pretty sure they are like one of those things you only have to buy 2 or 3 times in your life, like a car.

    Shaving soap? Does it do anything special? I just wet my face and shave with a plastic disposable razor.

    My favorite is Trumpers Lavender, shaves the best, but you kind of smell like a grandma..

    That's what I was thinking, dry shave with steak knife for daily penance.

    How can you get a close shave with anything other than a razor? And none of that triple blade crap!

    I have very coarse facial hair. It somewhat softens the stubble and by preparing the lather on your face it also lifts the hair away from your skin, allowing for a closer shave. Of course you'll need a brush for that.

    There are days though when I envy guys like you. It's quicker if your skin is tolerant for it. On the other hand, using nice equipment (soap, afther shave, double edge razor, badger brush) is making shaving less of a chore but rather something pleasant and relaxing. 15 minutes for yourself, great smells, awesome feeling.

    Dude I’m a nutbag for this stuff and my wife thinks I’m crazy too. I went from using an electric trimmer 1-2 times a week to what I’ve got now inside of 6 months and get pissy if I can’t shave every day.

    What are you using? Favorites right now are a Timeless .95 and an Ikon SBS, and I think for soaps it’s a toss up between Barrister and Mann, WSP and Martin de Candre...

    Electric razor on any deployment and some travel. (deployment= what do I absolutely not need to use the shit/shower shack for?) I went back to the blade full time otherwise.

    having to shave every day is exactly why I switched to an electric razor. I hate shaving so much that I've joked about getting a shaving profile.
