Shaving really sucks.

I have more than idly considered lasering the hair off my neck.

Why are round pizzas cut into triangles and put into square boxes?

I use an electric shaver and shave mostly by feel, so I tend to read while shaving. I generally read everywhere I can.

When I used wet razor my random thoughts orbited around how pissed I was with that everyday morning ritual and wondering why no matter how new the razor was it still felt like it was dull.

I hate shaving and hence donít do it unless absolutely necessary. If anything I roll around with 2-3 days of growth shaving with the beard trimmer to knock down the stubble.

Then again I wear a hat inside, so thereís that.

I feel like Barbasol is the best value in shaving cream....although I'll admit to have some Nivea sensitive skin stuff though.

"Why cultivate on your face, that which grows wild on your ass?"

My Uncle Frank. Hence why one needs to be clean shaven.

I just came off an 11 year no shaving policy. Oddly enough I find that I sort of enjoy it now.

agreed, but more than a weeks worth of beard does too, IMO. I wish, I could be perpetually 4 days of stubble all the time.

I use a badger hair brush and a good cream you have to lather up. You can really make a good lather with it, and it last sforever

Donít shave during hunting season in the fall around Oct-Nov when it cools down around here. Shave it off around March when it heats back up.

A buddy of mine while I was still in the Navy said he brushed his teeth and had a small mirror in the shower to shave. Picked up the habit. Every morning I hit the shower. Brush teeth first. Pop on the brush cover. Shave and finish and then lather up with soap.

Every Sunday I take a razor to my noggin in the shower and shave my follically challenged head clean and smooth as a babyís butt. Sometimes I might do it again on Wednesday. Oh, I use Barasol with aloe too. Cheap and effective.

Donít contemplate much while doing all of that except what needs to get done that day... unless I had some really weird dream.

It's more the likelihood of it being successful.
