Re: Shaving Brush Recommendation

I already have a Jagger silvertip synthetic and it performs nicely. No issues, dries quickly, washes clean. I ordered the T3 because I'm an exclusive face latherer and the chubby style seemed like a good choice. I'm more of a painter than a smasher so I expect the T3 will give me a good combination....

Re: Shaving Brush Recommendation

I have a T3 on the way although it seems to be taking the scenic route through Canada, Togo, and parts of South America before getting here.

Re: Astronomy Anyone??

As a kid I would lie on my back in the backyard with my handheld refractor staring at Antares and sometimes the moon. Always tempted to get a 6" mirror or even an 8". Hereabouts there's way too much light pollution to justify the investment. Instead, I get some satisfaction with the occasional viewi...

I've been using a tie-on version made from an old t-shirt, pattern from the CDC website. Yesterday I bought a few ear-loop versions, with half the cost going to a local food bank.

Re: Joke of the Day

Quarantine humor (no politics). Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks, the other half will come out with a drinking problem. Still haven't decided where to go for Easter.. the living room or the bedroom. I don't think anyone expected that when we changed the clocks we...

Re: Gillette Heated Razor

And here I was dipping and rinsing my razor in hot water. How absolutely primitive of me.

Just to be clear, I was poking fun at the product, not the article which I thought was well-written and comprehensive.

Re: Alcohol based aftershave

I'm not much of an aftershave guy although I've picked up three bottles this year (Spanish, German, Swiss). Before that burst of spending, I'd only pick up a bottle of Aqua Velva Classic Ice Blue just to have something on hand and because I'm cheap. Walking out in the cold air with AV was a nice com...

Re: Is SMF losing its vigour?

Since you asked, the idea was to pair different soaps/creams with types of women. Such as highly mentholated soaps with women who rise early, pour coffee into you, and drag you out for a run. I didn't take it much further. Just an idea.
