"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 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

Milo Morris replied to Sir's discussion Is it manly to own a cat?
"I really don't care whether its manly or not. We need a damn cat in this house. Every year the mice come in starting in the fall. A cat would be a better solution than the poison we put around in the basement."

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Date Night Ideas

Romance is manly. And every man should know how to plan a great night out for his woman. But, let's face it, sometimes ideas are few and far between. This group is for exchanging ideas about the venerable "Date Night" and other acts of romance.

Penelope replied to Pale Horse's discussion Backsliding in the group Christian Men
"It's my understanding that there are documents from the Council of Trent that would suggest Regular Joe's position, but they are not meant to contradict Augustine of Hippo's anti-Pelagian writings. Among these are On the Gift of…"
