Nah, I need something to keep working toward. ;)
That said, I hope to have the carving bench done this weekend.
Yeah, my small amound of facial hair comes off in 30 seconds
with one of those vs. half an hour in the bathroom softening
hair enough to use a straight razor or Bic on my sensitive
Google it. "paraphenalia"
Did you mean "paraphernalia"?
Google is one helluva nice resource center. Go to their home
page and learn more about it. You may be missing half a dozen
different features all worth their weight in gold, pard.
What, ya looked it up in the Hernia Edition? My collegiate copy
has n. pl. 1. personal belongings. 2. equipment, trappings.
Build more elevated cabinets. I'm in the same predicament, and
I already lost some weight. (Half of it found me again, blast it.)
I'm not sure what I'm looking for there. The incorrect spelling seems to
have more pot-related stuff.
The 1913 Webster's (because it's online in a convenient to browse format,
basically; I can just type the word into my status bar flummy and go)
Ain't got no wall space, Chief. The roof is one of those, well, I can't
draw it with slashes. Anyway, the side walls are only about 4' tall. The

What's that got to do with it? I keep getting tools even though I
haven't the place to put them and some I haven't used since I bought
them years ago. They're *tools*! You just have to have them.
A corollary to this whole thread: Why do razor blade companies compete
against themselves with multiple kinds of razors? I can understand
having different levels of quality (Sensor, Sensor XL, etc), or having
different uses (for coarse hair, for sensitive skin, etc), but most
razor companies simply make multiple kinds of razors with little
explanation as to any kind of differences in them. Wouldn't it make
more sense to promote one kind of razor as better than the
Well, like toothbrushes, sugar, salt, and a number of other consumer goods,
there aren't any real differences between one brand and another. They
have to differentiate their product _somehow_, so they do it by
marketing surveys, test groups, and that sort of thing. In a world
where there are no real differences, having a larger number of choices
be from your company is one way to increase market share.
It's all marketing bullshit, nothing more. They send you a "sample"
for free, only their blades fit that handle, and for reasons they understand
but don't make any sense, men won't throw away a perfectly good handle -
so we'll keep buying blades from 'em.
Not to mention that if they predominate on the shelves, they'll likely get
the majority of the sales. Companies that have big selling power, can also
ask for and get "slotting fees"- money to simply give a particular product
producer the "best" spot on the shelf. Pat
I gave up on that a couple of years ago- I discovered that the cheap
disposible ones last as long or longer than the refills for the ones
with the *free* handle, and work just as good- for $1.25 instead of
