Great show guys. A couple things...
Like Shipwreck I too received a free Gillette Mach 3 razor more than 10 years ago and still have it. Actually a lot of people I know also received the same razor for free in the mail as a promotion they had.
Cheapy, last year I had used laser removal for the hair on my neck. I went through 10 treatments, about 1 every 5 to 6 weeks, and wasn't completely satisfied with the results. The thicker the hair the more difficult it is to erradicate it. The hair on my neck has thinnned out and lost it's color pigment so it is difficult to see but it's still there. It will take more treatments to completely get rid of it. Since it wasn't too expensive so I may go back later.
Also Cheapy when shaving, prep is everything. There is definitely something to the hot towel on the face you see in movies/tv.
