Sérge NP commented on Matthew Jones's group Real Shaving
"I am using this razor every morning. Just one run, seems to be enough. It was a bit hard for my skin before I found proper soap. I really like this razor, I am using it for more thanone year, and the morning is not a morning without shaving by this…"

"Thank you for the explanations. If Lynn is in North America, I'm afraid, it is not worth to send the razor from Europe. But there are similar services that can be found here. I bought my blade from the knife shop, it was new and, I suppose,…"

"Personally, i prefer to stretch it out all day, but i do my heavy lifting in the morning, as a way to "kickstart the engine". Primarily high-weight, low rep, and a combination of lower body, upper body, and core training on my home weight…"

Carl Monster replied to Sérge NP's discussion Your morning workout, gentlemen?
"Zero time in the AM. I get up, dress, eat, commute, coffee up, then start my day at work. I hit the gym at noon, at the peak of my energy level."

"I used to be mr. morning work out, but of late have been hitting the gym post class although I do think morning is the best time.  I do body-weight calisthenics  4-5 times a week. I have a cool app called You Are Your Own Gym…"

Chuck Neal replied to Sérge NP's discussion Your morning workout, gentlemen?
"I've pondered living in France some time in the future. Spent some time there in college and would love to go back for an extended stay. Sounds like I would need to change up my morning routine a bit. There is always the option of body weight…"

Sérge NP replied to Sérge NP's discussion Safety razor vs. blade razor
"Thank you, you're absolutely right, it is a kind of meditation, considering time, attention and devotion required. This is why I left razor blade shaving for weekend, when I have more time."

Sérge NP replied to Sérge NP's discussion Safety razor vs. blade razor
"Oh, thank you for these tips! Does one really needs to sharpen the blade with wet stone? And, if yes, how often? I would agree with JonEdanger: the salesman in knife shop discourage me strongly to sharpen it by myself. He said the honing it with…"

"Impressive! Unfortunately, there are no gym here around (Alsace, France) open before 8.00."

Sérge NP replied to Sérge NP's discussion Your morning workout, gentlemen?
"Interesting, is there a purpose of coffee between the sets, or just for a pleasure? I mean, it must be very hard for you heart: I often have quite rapid pulsing after, say, squats. And to add coffee?? But it must be really waking up routine, is it?"

Chuck Neal replied to Sérge NP's discussion Your morning workout, gentlemen?
"I prefer the gym as it mentally separates me from other things (work, home, etc) and forces me to focus on exercise. 3-4 days of weights a week, alternating muscle groups and 1-2 of cardio is my typical routine. I start around 5:30 so I am out…"

Regular Joe replied to Will's discussion What's going on in those heads in the group The Great Debate
"Handout implies charity. I wouldn't call making an auto or home insurance claim a request for charity, so I don't see why I'd call making a claim on employment insurance a request for a handout."

"Nah. The shutdown in the fall of 95 was like 21 days, there weren't any shutdowns before 1976, and only a handful between 1976 and 1995 - all for just a few days. I stand by the shut-down during the Clinton Administration being the first major…"
