The VA will do it for free, but there is a twist, they use radiation. Just one of the perks of cancer of the voice box.

A shave is becoming more and more of a bother as now days I only have to worry about my wife getting rubbed the wrong way.

Shaving at night is much more pleasant than shaving in the morning.

Oddly enough, I recently read a billboard that said, "Soldiers shave in the morning and gentlemen shave at night." I prefer night time as well.

I run my clippers over my face twice per mo. Shaving with a weeks growth hurts.

But with clippers just run them without a guard and get almost skin close.

Easy peasy, zero pain.

Can an atheist demand insurance for Acts of God, or would the atheist be better off demanding they be called something else on the policy?

I was going to respond in a similar manner but you beat me to it.
Still amazed at how smooth my chin and neck are these days.

Radiation is most effective, but side effects can be a bitch.

Acts of God do not get paid by insurance, because, seriously, who fucks with God?

Acts of Dog, however, are a completely different issue. So if the hickey matches your dental records, blame dyslexia....

Thus, to an atheist, there could be no such thing, which is why I wonder if they could demand coverage...based on wording.

There are not enough give a shits in this world to keep my chin soft as a nubiles's ass.

I simply don't give a shit. My employer doesn't either. I've shaved every morning for 20 years and heretofore, I don't give a shit. I sport a 7-12 day shadow at work and I've never heard anything about it.

I'm sure there are othe vets that think like me... if not, I don't give a shit either.

Yeah. It is.

Somewhere around 15 years ago I began shaving in the shower. No shave cream, no nothing except the water. Haven't looked back.

The only random thought I have while shaving is, “don’t cut yourself, dummy.”
