"I use an open comb Merkur, and I like my results. If I get lazy with it, I'll get a nick or two, but none usually, just a close shave. I've never used another DE before, as I only made the switch a few months back."
"My gillette old feels about as aggressive as my tech, but it doesn't block with lather as quickly. If you apply too much pressure you might get the skin into the grooves and burn your face a bit, but without weight there shouldn't be a…"
"I switched back to DE saftey razors awhile back after finding my grandfather's Gillettesin a box one day.
After using both the 1960's Superspeed and the 1920's open-comb short handled safety razor, I find that the open comb allows for…"
"I switched to a current production open comb 15c Merkur from my mid 1960s vintage Gillette Adjustable a month ago and I found I got superior shaves with next to no nicks and I have not had any trouble with razor burn since the switch over."
"We live pretty remotely surrounded by several hundred acres of woodland, during the summer we may have some neighbors around the lake but otherwise we are the only full time residents so I feel pretty comfortable in boxers and a t-shirt whether…"
"I'm one of those "shorts year round" kind of guys, don't even think I own a pair of pants, I just have a thing about anything on my legs. Hiking, hunting, shoveling snow, I even wore tuxedo shorts for my wedding. :)

"I have 2 of those polaroid 100 land cameras, they just stopped making the film this year. There was talk of another company picking up the rights to produce the film so many people bought up remaining supplies to tide them over. They are wonderful…"
"I'm sorry Daniel, just having a bit of fun.
Anyway, you can take a look at some of the medieval paintings and/or artifacts and get ideas for furniture and see how you can make or create some of your own. Personally I would take a look at…"
"I'm sorry you can't follow my logic about the courts.
Anyway, I have a computer algorithm that I used to determine fault but I did round off the numbers a bit. The Malaysian Air fault is actually 89.689323115982234980% and the…"
"Maybe my explanation was a bit too extreme. I am trying to make my place have that "old world" appearance. Perhaps not stubbornly medieval, but I would like it to have that simple yet old fashioned feel to it. Perhaps a better comparison…"
"Invite her somewhere outside of business hours. Lunch on Wednesday is ambiguous (friend, colleague, date?). Dinner and dancing on Saturday night is not. That'll get you the clear answer you're wanting ... though…"
