In my experience of life most people seem to only "care" about nature when they're witnessing how great it is, ie if they take a certain vacation to a nature spot or at the zoo or see a cool nature photo online that all their friends like. But they don't give a sh** enough not to litter on the ride home from that trip etc.

Because if people actually believe in the Global Warming science, (rather than just blinding accepting something they know virtually nothing about) meat consumption is approximately the worst thing you can do for the planet (again, that's IF you believe this stuff). That's per the UN IPCC science, who are the Lord & Masters of Global Warming research, claims, and solutions.

So why do you (and virtually nobody) not know the above, and if meat consumption is even worse than driving SUVs or using coal, then why is virtually all the focus on oil, coal, SUVs, and alternative energy? Simple. Because politicians cant rake in ****loads of money if you don't eat a rib-eye tonight. Hypocrisy. Fraud. Rinse/repeat.

Bizarre Earth Day Factoid?

The founder of Earth Day murdered his girlfriend, had her composted, and then claimed the CIA did it (yes really).

So I'm getting tired of using and buying expensive stupid razor blade cartridges.

Anyone use an electric razor? What kind, likes/dislikes?

Tried a few over the past 2 decades. Never liked them enough to stop using blades. Something about the angled cut of a razor led to less problems than the flat cut of electric. Not as close, still get irritation, etc.

Panasonic had the best battery life from my experience. Last one lasted like 10 years and could go a week without recharging.

Braun sucked. Needed recharged almost every day and foils would micro-crack and cut up your face but you wouldn't know it until after you got out of the shower and saw all the lines leaving you looking like you just got mauled by a mountain lion.

If you go for it - get an expensive one, not a cheapo one.

Blades are the way to go,, in my experience electric razors suck (except for how easy they are, just flipping a switch is as easy as it gets) but the result is crappy

Its not the use that wears blades down fast, it's the water.. After everytime you use the blade dry it thoroughly, that should help make them last longer

Been using a electric razor for about 10 years now, very happy with it. Like RG said, not as a close shave as a manual, but it gets pretty damn close.

I use a Braun series 3 which is a fairly cheap one, but I shave maybe once or twice a week and barely grow whiskers so I didn't want to break the bank. It does the job nice, but the battery sort of sucks and I probably should change the foil cartridge (definitely has been more than 18 months, which they recommend you change it), so it irritates my skin a little.

Anyway, like RG said, if you do go for it, go for a quality, expensive one.

I use an electric norelco. I only use an electric because I have to shave so much. I will use a regular razor if I've went a while without shaing though. The electric hurts when it's too long.

While I don't use an electric, I shave my head and face twice a week with the Target brand disposable 3 bladed flex head razor (about $6/8). I shave in the shower so that the hair is nice and pliable and lather it up with regular bar soap. Each razor lasts about 6-8 shaves only if you bother to dry it afterwards to prevent blade dulling.

Electric works well if you shave consistently. Not as close as a razor, but it's not a significant difference. If I go a few days without shaving I have to use a razor because longer hair gets caught in the electric shaver and it hurts like a *****.

Thanks for all the opinions.

Still on the fence about the whole thing. Definitely think I'd shave more often if it was easier, which makes the electric sound more appealing across the board except that if I don't like it I just dumped $100-200 out the window.

Agree with RG that Braun stinks, disagree with him and most others that electric is "not even close" to using a razor blade.

This definitely used to be true, but I dont think its been true for at least 5 or 6 years with newer technology of pivoting heads (this is key) etc. I use a Phillips electric, and it amazed me the first time I used it how close it was to the real thing. Battery life's great too. I still keep a Mach III for tough face curves just in case or something the electric just isnt getting, but by-and-large the electric does 98% of the job and saves time and $$$$. My 2¢

Science is a funny thing. It can tell you how things work but it cant make you understand them.

Especially when you blindly accept something you know very little about.

Yes; I totally agree.

That's why I didn't bother posting a link to the UN environmental Working Paper analysis on livestock's massive greenhouse gas contribution, because those who "blindly accept" wouldn't bother reading it anyway (or want to).

I love not having to work Fridays. The best part? Waking up and getting to play some puck in the morning. Wonderful.
