Whatever works for you. We won't judge.

Much.

My thoughts while shaving are: 1) This sucks, but I hate facial hair. 2) I should have gotten into the razor blade business because these Mach 3 blades are ridiculously expensive. When I was stationed in PI my haircut guy, Peping, would finish up with a nice straight razor along the neck and ears and would give me a nice face shave. Shit was smooth.

While shaving with my grandfathers safety razor I’ve used daily since 2005:

Know who doesn’t shave? Durka durkas. I think I’ll shave twice just because of that.

As a former cowboy, I always cringe at this statement. Of course chaps are assless, otherwise they'd just be pants

Edge gel cans seem smaller.

The caps for Edge get used to make a perfect muzzle cap for a M203. I wonder if they still fit.

Do you shave before or after drinking a Pabst Blue Ribbon and gathering eggs from your urban chickens?

Would the appropriate term be pantsless chaps? Inquiring minds want to know.

Since I live in some weird less-explored part of this planet, I wanted to know about the mystical assless chaps because I never heard of them. So I googled it. In Google images. Now I know. And my God, I wish I didn't.

I use a "safety" razor, so I'm usually somewhat focused on not cutting the shit out of myself. Although strange to use at first, it's saved my bazillion dollars on blades over the past six years. I wished I'd know about it earlier on AD.

I also wonder why I can't grow hair on certain parts on my cheeks. Preventing my cliche contractor beard.

No, that would be nothing at all. You guys ruin everything.

I've hated shaving forever... but had two jobs where it was mandatory. Now that I am retired, I only shave with a brush hog (beard trimmer). No more blades against this skin... It's back to my caveman roots...

What's with this "Shave Club"?

Metrosexual thing or is it useful?

I'm still going through puberty (at 46), so I only shave once, maybe twice a week. I can usually find a feral cat to lick my face in a pinch with same results as a single bladed razor.

1960's Gillette bomb-bay doors style adjustable safety razor. 100 double edge blades on eBay for $20 and I'm GTG for years. Pucks of shaving soap in a mug with a boar bristle brush. When I'm not using an electric razor.

They sell you Dorco razors through clever commercials at a cheaper price than most brands. You can get Dorco razors on Amazon even cheaper which is what I do.

Wondering how my WW1 era Swiss wind-up razor is still working. I don't know how many owners it's had...

Somehow this all seems very appropriate.
