There's a guy sells a knife sharpening angle jig who shaved off full beards with an axe wielded by his young daughter. My experimental archaeology use of obsidian blades confirmed what pop culture denies: men have predominently shaved for hygiene and close combat for the majority of prehistiory and ...

If his emminence was a member AND moderator would we be excommunicated or merely denied the sacraments of shaving? I've just returned from attending church with my coptic nieghbors.

First the great schism over the Filioque and supremecy of the Bishop of Rome. Now it's a slap in the face to all frankincense and myrhh incense makers.
