Re: Sunglasses

Very Steampunk Sam. Nice find. Ideally you'd pair them with a low rise top hat.

Okay, I'm gonna be that guy.

Evolution does not state that man evolved from apes, but that man and apes share a common ancestor. Much like rhinos and horses.


Carry on. . . :D

Re: Nespresso v. Keurig

The Nespresso combined with it's companion frothing device (aeroccino I think) is probably the ideal solution for someone who wants to get as close as possible to a coffee house style latte/cappuccino without falling down the rabbit hole of spending infinite money on professional level grinders and ...

Re: Last of the Magnificent Seven

I recall Yul Brynner, Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Steve McQueen and Robert Vaughn (guy with the cool black gloves is how I recall him. . .)

Re: FYI....Leica and Android fans can rejoice!!!

So, I see a red dot on the box, and the word Leica on the camera.
A fine looking phone, apparently not available in the USA.

Re: FYI....Leica and Android fans can rejoice!!!

I'm struggling to see what exactly Huawei can put in their cameras from Leica, without making the phone prohibitively expensive. A Leica lens in a phone camera seems unlikely. Or, that should maybe be a Leica lens in a phone camera under $1500 seems unlikely. Leica's going to “introduce its proven o...

Re: Miniscus tear and surgery

My wife (coincidentally an attorney) blew out her knee pretty comprehensively while skiing a couple of winters ago. She did several weeks of "pre-hab" before her surgery and then wasn't off her feet afterwards very much at all - the pre-hab took time out of her days, obviously, but she was able to g...

Re: What is the best razor for shaving your head?

I have shaved my head with plenty of razors, including straights, GEMs, Feather Cobras, Merkur Progress, Feather two and three blade cartridges, Headblade, and Fusion (on Clive's recommendation). Fusion gives me the best head shaving experience. Head shaving (for me, obviously) is very different fro...

Re: Hair clippers and cutting your own hair

Corded are definitely the way to go if my experience is anything to go by - nothing adds to your style points like running out of battery power halfway through a cut :D , plus the corded ones have a bit more oomph. I shave my head daily now, but initially I would use my Wahl Balding clippers on a su...

Re: Target wants to hear from wetshaving enthusiasts

I was in Target the other day and, thanks to this thread, had a closer look at the men's shaving section. Just beyond the revolving display of the Fusion with the spring on the orange rubber cylinder was the little section of potentially useable products. Cremo Cream was the one that caught my eye, ...

Re: Minimal Travel Gear

I usually spend more time on my shaving kit for a trip than anything else, often ending up with the perfect compact toiletries bag and a case crammed full at the last minute with the wrong things. . . For carry-on I've arrived at the Feather F-II as my TSA acceptable razor that does both my face and...

at the risk of this thread not lasting, can you clarify this part please? Trayvon Martin was guilty as hell of what, and clearly a dirtbag because of what?

Re: Trying to pair up Spotify on my phone with my car audio

The HTC device plugs into the auxiliary and then makes it just like your car radio has bluetooth, the sync part isn't a big deal.

Sam, I went with the HTC Bluetooth Stereo Clip (http://www.htc.com/us/accessories/#!pid=htc-desire-eye&acc=htc-bluetooth-stereoclip), because having to plug the phone into anything is so last century :D My car (Mini Countryman, so I think it shares a subset of the BMW phone features) has Bluetooth f...

Re: Cast iron skillett

Not sure if it was mentioned but some folks tell of a health benefit to using iron cookware, in terms of iron being absorbed into the food as it's cooked. You might also want to research Bantu beer before going too far down that road. C. Interesting reading. I hope Clive isn't warming his Becks in ...

We also have a pretty extensive selection of copper pots and pans, but the cast iron are the first choice fo...

Re: Blast from the Past

As I looked at the photos it was hard not to create my own back story for the place - very interesting. It must be very remote to remain that undisturbed, unless someone is protecting it like the Paiute do with the Anasazi remains - never know when they'll come back. (Also, one of the captions has a...
