Ouch. It seems my biting wit has been sorely missed.

Brushes: Anything new coming out in the near future?

Seeing as I'm home now and attempting to relearn how to shave, I thought it a good time to invest in a new brush. Basically, I'm wondering if it's wise to wait a few weeks/months for an impending release, or just choose from what's already on the market. Talk amongst yourselves.

Thank you for your service. I truly appreciate your sacrifice.
Oddly enough, that's the same thing I say to women after they've spend the night.

Thank you for the kind wishes Rasco. At least somebody cares! :) I wasn't with a military service. I was working with an aid organization and, no, there really wasn't much in the way of net access. If I wanted to drive several hours into the country to access it I could have. Alas, I felt my time wa...

Wow this is depressing. I really thought I would have garnered more of a cult like following.

I'd rather not say too much about what I was doing but it involved being in Darfur for the past several months.

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the oven's self cleaning cycle. Beats the hell out of the closed grill method as well as oven cleaner. All it needs afterwards is a wipe down. To avoid serious stuck on dirt in the future, get a clean dishrag, a plate, and a pair of tongs. Fold the rag into a squa...

Cost is another factor that I rarely see mentioned. The cheapest Blu-Ray player you can get is a $500 PS3! You can snag an external XBox 360 HD-DVD player for $160-$180 on sale. That savings alone could stock a DVD cabinet for months to come.

Certain hotel chains offer cards that give bonuses. That might be something worth looking into. Other than that, I'd go with the best reward card for your activities, i.e. flying = mileage card, hotels = hotels card, etc.. Here's a good link from the FatWallet finance forum on all the current reward...

Any chance that we could merge the 2 designs into one? A scuttle design with the ridged interior surface would accommodate those who prefer to lather in the bowl along with those looking for a hot lather.

Am i alone in thinking the guinness brewed in canada (what we buy in the US) has a dominant water flavor? If we were in ireland it might be unheard of but from what i can get my hands on i'd rather have a murphy's every time :shock:, sorry labatts- just not cutting it :? You're certainly not alone....

WTB: Small Moss Scuttle

If anyone has one they're willing to part with, I'm game. Either color, it doesn't matter to me.
