    They're really doubling down on this silliness.

    I'm a Bic man now. It was not some grand protest gesture but last time I was buying razors I noticed they are way cheaper so I gave em a shot. They work well and I'm happy with the savings.

    Also, I'm sure your all dying to hear this news...I trimmed my balls over the weekend. No razors involved but the sideburns clipper of my Norelco did the job pretty well as always.

    I don't think it's silly to show love, even in a crass attempt to sell shit.

    I'm an Astra Platinum user.

    I've watched a few videos on how a single blade works a lot better than those multiblade razors.

    I use a Mach 3 from years ago. I use generic Walmart Blades. Last longer than the regular ones and is cheaper.

    And cheaper too. So much cheaper. $20 for 100 double sided blades. I buy a box every year or two. I've never had a closer shave.

    I gave up on blades. Electric may not be the closest shave, but it's the fastest and easiest.

    Can you post a picture of them? I bet they look really pretty with all the tiny ornaments, twinkling lights and tinsel.

    Funny, I went the other way. I used an electric shaver because my dad did. But in recent years, I was having all sorts of problems with crappy shaves and dull rotary heads. I got a Braun shaver and it was even worse. The Mrs convinced me to try a blade, and it works.

    I did the same thing. Being bald my shave was always uneven with a eclectic. Tried the blade and liked it a lot better. It was the mrs (at that time still the girlfriend) who convinced me to try.

    That's me too. I've always used a Norelco cause my dad does and it is a Dutch brand but now I'm like 50-50 shaver to razor depending on how I feel that day. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Norelco is a worse shave but no water or cream needed. Blades are much closer but messier to get done.

    This is one of those times when getting good value for the dollar isn't necessarily the best thing, it just means you live in an undesirable shithole state.

    Maine is at $1.02, but I live on the southern coast, which has home values more than twice the state average. Likewise, in any state, if you average the pricey urban areas with the unpopulated rural areas, you'll get a meaningless figure.

    That's about us.
    With all of the rural areas that we've got, it skews the urban areas.
