    No, I'm familiar with The Onion I just thought it was a very well written piece that made me want to buy Gillette. Seemed kinda like an Old Spice or Axe thing to do but it worked for me... until you just shattered my dreams.

    This whole razor thing is why I became Amish.

    Keeping up this double life is a pain, but I keep my my solar-powered laptop hidden from the community and I only post while I'm in the outhouse. The brothers are getting worried about my frequent need to "go" however.

    I take it they don't allow a 2nd Rumspringa in the Amish community?

    I get these free gilette razors but I never replace the blades. They still seem to work. I shave in the shower and do a lot of shaving against the grain, usually letting the shower water work as the "cream." My shaving costs are like nil!

    OH MY GAWD!

    I just bought one of these marvelous razors. I shave against the grain under my chin and on my neck. It was so smoooooth. I could barely feel the razor against my skin.

    Ah-maz-zing!

    I might have to invest. I recently had my head shaved on Friday to get prepared for the Draft Party. I put on a brand new Fusion blade tonight to clean it back up and it completely used up the entire blade. It's worthless. And my hair was not even that long.


    ***** the Fusion Blade. I must try this Proglide.

    I got my hair cut today in time for the festivities. I use a 1 guard with clippers. Some kind old Korean lady does it for me. She's harder than Hell to understand, but I'm swoon.

    No, but I have his Jump shot down.


    I'm very good at mimicking old Pacers jumpshots. The Travis Best one requires help from a 23-second time-keeper and a very tall person to block it.

    Putty, I simply prefer that my shaving routine not involve the possibility of bleeding out in 30 seconds from my jugular because I was in a hurry to get to work..

    Now that I've used the Proglide for a while, I would like to say that I love this razor more than anything that isn't sweabs' Mom or the homeless guy I pay to act like sweabs' Mom.

    But do you have the 23 second pounding dribble down? That is the key!

    I understand. But that's what's cool about a straight razor. Using one takes skill, and you mustn't hurry. It is a serious ritual.

    I've been trying two classic razor-extenders w/ the Glide... stropping w/ denim (both to sharpen and to clean the blade) and coating it with mineral oil between uses. So far the blade has stayed super-sharp, although the blue strip is (obviously) wearing off much quicker. We'll see if it ends up working long-term... supposedly there are guys that can keep a blade sharp for 6 months this way.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I have no complaints about my proglide. I did buy an electric sharpener but have not tried it yet on these blades.
