The shave was 45 minutes ago and feeling smoother and smoother as the whiskers dehydrate and shrink back a bit.
I've always wondered why my face feels noticeably smoother a good 15 to 30 minutes after a shave than it does immediately after the cutting.
This is a lesson many people never learn. It's where "chasing the baby" came from. Shavers who keep making passes to achieve BBS often yield only irritation. I'm a head and face shaver and I shave in the shower. I don't have natural baldness, so my scalp has plenty of dense stubble. Immediately after shaving, my scalp is always BBS, but my cheeks and neck have a mild roughness. About 20 minutes later, it's usually BBS all over. This is because my scalp has less dermis and fat into which it can hide, but my neck and cheeks are much more fleshy, so the minor stubble retracts when I dry down.

9nein9: To like or not to like the like button? That is the question. Our society thrives off the like button it seems . I'm not sure if I like it or I don't like it.Just kind of got used to it .

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?
Dec 24, 2019 22:11:29 GMT -6
ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
