Re: A must-read for lurkers and new shavers!

Wow - there's a blast from the past. I do still visit SMF every weekday, however I rarely post these days due to having a much more demanding (and rewarding) workday than at the start of my wetshaving journey. I'll read a post, think of replying, do something else, and come back to find the communit...

Re: Not Usually A Movie Goer, But ....

Being a fairly monumental Tolkien fan during my teen years (I have visited his grave. . .) I always found the Tom Bombadil text the least compelling of anything in the LOTR/Hobbit books. If anything had to be omitted from the films, I would have chosen good old Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!...

Re: You only get two razors; which & why

I use two razors every shave, although only one on my face. Merkur Bobgress for my face, and Fusion for my head, are the choices most days. A head (well mine, anyway) is so uniform and supported everywhere by bone that the Fusion is the ideal tool for it. The Bobgress has been my favourite DE for a ...

Re: Feeling Like George Banks

Much like Chris, I didn't get the reference, then googled George Banks, then wondered what exactly Wendell was trying to tell us. . .I naturally assumed I had the wrong end of the stick and shouldn't expect to see Wendell in the news.

Re: The world's longest ingrown

Well, I clicked on it, and then clicked on one of the related videos. I'm intrigued at the thought process that leaves an enormous black thing on a face for "literally months", and then decides to dig at it with tweezers and a video camera. I still feel hungry, and am about to take lunch. . . :mrgre...

I could see an argument for giving it to Jose, knowing it would be a short term thing because he doesn't hang around too long. He's a natural winner, and a big enough personality to step into the void left by SAF's departure. I'm not sure being the manager right after Sir Alex is attractive as being...

I've actually been in the routine of changing the posts to 2013 each Monday morning, but had forgotten to do it the last couple of weeks. Bad moderator!

Anyway - I fixed them just now, and all is right with the world.

Who can forget "Nasty" Nastase and the long haired Argentinian whose name escapes me at the moment ? Lots of real "personalities" playing back then. Although Lendl was outstanding, he seemed like an automaton, as did the Swedes. Conners, Nasty and cry baby Johnnie were more fun to watch, if more ad...

yes, it is harsh, but it's true. probably one of the few true things about the lance armstrong story! I feel the same as Paddy. The number of times I've been looked at like some sort of kook for suggesting Lance was doping is astronomical. I admit I took longer than I should have to be convinced, b...

Dig a little deeper, and you'll find that 100 grand to the nation's leading provider of reproductive healthcare is nothing compared to the money raised by Armstrong personally.

I have little use for either one of them. Well -- I am a big cycling fan, and get that the sport has major problems. And yes, I drank the Lance Kool-Aid when he won 7 in a row -- but, never, ever did I like him as a person. I read his first book "It's Not About The Bike" -- and thought maybe this g...

I just followed your steps using this very post, and didn't see what you report happening.
Is it repeatable for you, or was it a one-off?
