    I can blame bad form for the two nicks I got today. Got rushed near the end (i know i know) and wasn't paying attention. Fortunately one was very minor and the other one was over an old scar, I got when i was 10, got into a scrap and got hit with a rusty bar lol. (rhyme unintentional) Have you looked into that Neutrogena microderm abrasion kit?

    Well said! Your axiom #3 is sticks in my mind, EVERY time I rush or let me attention wander I cut myself.

    I actually had a lightning fast shave again last night in contradiction to Axiom #3. I should point out that it was a great edge on my W&B that did it and there was only one little nick that had largely disappeared by morning. That was a 10 minute shave. I wasn't planning to go particularly fast, and I wasn't in a rush to get anywhere except downstairs for tea with my wife before it got cold.

    Great guidelines!

    My two cents: If the shave isn't going well and the razor isn't cutting your stubble well and easily, stop shaving and finish with another razor/shaving method. Going over a stubborn spot your face 10 times with a dull razor won't make your face smooth or your razor sharp, it will just make your face hurt and prevent you from shaving tomorrow.

    I am a Buddhist and keeping your mind foucsed on the task at hand is a huge concept of Buddhism.
    Be in the act of the shave, use your entire focus on your shave and your shave will be more enjoyable, you day will start better and your mind will be clearer.

    I sound like a goddamn sage..lol

    Default I wasn't thinking about that.

    I am waiting for my first new razor to come in the mail. I have been looking forward to shaving with it. Now I am a little psyched-out about it for fear of cutting myself. I need to get over being freaked-out.
