"I have one of these  GEM micromatics. I first learned how to use a safety razor with it a few years ago. I'd say it's not the most user friendly right out of the gate. There are definitely more forgiving razors out there but…"

"I have been shaving every other day with one of three Micromatics for the past year. I have two clog-prufs and one classic. As long as I'm careful, I can avoid cuts and achieve some of the closest shaves. In my opinion, the trick is to keep the…"

"I did a lot of reading last night, and this morning gave it another go.  There are some things to learn about safety razors before just diving in, it seems.  Damn this thing shaves close.  No nicks or cuts, no irritation. For those…"

Gem Micromatic Razor?

I have an old Gem Micromatic, exactly like the one in the third photo in the bakelite case here: http://wiki.badgerandblade.com/MicromaticI used this once a really long time ago.  It was awful.  Now, I wouldn't hesitate to chalk that up to bad technique or a cheap blade.  But does anyone use these daily?  Is there a secret I'm missing?See More

"We co-slept for a quite a while, combination of having a great sleeper and a room she had to share with our older daughter. We could not Ferberize her like our younger, because the older's sleep would have been disrupted. Around when we weaned…"

I am responsible for co-sleeping

My daughter is now 15 months and fit the most part sleeps on.my chest. Whether it's nap time, or bed time. I do acknowledge that this is wrong. Me and my fiancée are first time parents. Her mom passed away in January of 2015. Her dad also passed away when she was younger. My parents live about 30-40 minutes away. They on the other hand have to deal with my oldest sister who has decided she didn't want to "adult" anymore and now my parents help her and her three kids al the time. Needless to say…See More

"I am INFP or INTP. That's why I can't seem to be accurate in these types of tests. I seem to be halfway in-between each time I take it, so I'm basically both, depending on the questions. Usually F/T are close enough where it's…"
