  1. i used an electric as a teen. very harsh on the skin. very gadgety appeal to them. i switched to safety razor because of cartridge prices. the expense of other shaving stuff adds up if you go deep on the various aspects. oddly, gillette probably make the best blades for safety razors - they seem to have more than get recommended than any other company. general rule often seems to be russian-made blades are great vfm. recommending is a minefield because everyones skin and hair has it's own qualities and you need to have a balance between good preparation and suitable razor, blade (both can be t
  2. post shave treatments are a possibility; good vfm + quality would be proraso's 'pre shave', which many shavers rate very highly as a post-shave as it's a soothing cream. maybe also look at cremo cooling (not easy to get in UK) or lucky tiger's stuff. https://www.notino.co.uk/proraso/green-pre-shaving-cream/p-617841/ https://cremocompany.com/post-shave-balm-cooling https://luckytiger-europe.com avoid anything with alcohol, of course (dries skin), and remember it's a rabbit hole (i could list 100+ post-shave treatments) like most subjects, especially shaving. other than
  3. i'm interested to see what happens with new vaccine research, as i can remember a mention of trying to design one that can adapt to appearances of future variants despite not knowing exactly what the characteristics would be, of course, once administered to people. in a sense, no need to chase your tail each year with boosters as you do with less infectious / dangerous things like the flu. i am pretty sure people aren't quite wrapping their heads around vaccines being bust by mutations, variants. still plenty who think when they themselves are vaccinated it's safer for them forever, and o
  4. i often try to pinpoint the moment i lost most of my definite excitement for new rdj work, and i think it’s between icbyd + rdj album original releases ... the slight return to form is this run of ep’s + chosen lords. odd thing to do, but it’s caused by a mix of having spoken to a member of staff at sister ray when HAB released + he said he was done with his work as it was using a style found in some form elsewhere, and an ongoing career and appearance of new fans over the years who haven’t necessarily been able to hear it all as it first appeared, their different perspectives + apprecia
  5. the evaluation of ages and infections will be continuous, of course. age is still considered the major factor, and i guess age was settled on as a way to manage administering injections some time ago. it will also have been known that variants will try to mutate to find new / better ways to succeed. i believe you might see acceleration in transmission rates and generation of new variants within age groups typical of those likely to socialise in pubs and clubs, perhaps more so than those in other places reopening in the UK as of yesterday, now that things are moving on here, as they’re bus
  6. might be oddly to your advantage they’re a little slow. the UK giving younger people a choice due to AZ link to clots in those with certain blood conditions / behaviours / characteristics might knock on to global adjustment in its use. as for canada’s 4 months between doses - the UK uses 12 weeks as the gap. i suspect this allows for steadier administering pace, but certainly initially looked like a way to spin the figures to look more positive. oddly, deaths and hospitalisations have come down; but we’ve been in lockdown during these months of reaching 50%+ of population with first, and
  7. odd use of the phrase ‘final stretch’. i’d say ‘end of the beginning’, and even then, denial is rife within leaders of some countries, so not even close to wrapping their heads around there being a problem, let alone solving it. variants will generate, vaccines will require revisions, problems will persist. likely for decades.
  8. cocteau twins best is generally seen as ‘treasure’. not that like mbv. as for tape ... cassette tape is nothing like studio tape.
  9. i’m usually very similar in my behaviour in online discussions. i’ve noticed a lot of relative difficulty in formulating ideas and theories, explanations, coming from people meeting here that are from across the globe. interesting to see a worldwide issue play out in different ways, and limit or alter views on what is happening, in what’s expressed in contributions. it’s a huge exercise in revealing people’s ability to logically think through the effects and consequences of behaviours and actions, and an ongoing one in ever-evolving ways. i suspect countries that resist acknowledging
  10. variants are not fear-mongering. the fear is from a variety of fronts - the risk of one that spreads more quickly, and kills more people. you can't predict where and when those more deadly variants appear. vaccination is an attempt to lower opportunities to generate variants; until you get through most of the world's population with vaccines, you're at least risking being back at square one all the time. remember, many countries won't even begin vaccination until next year, and some the year after that. every pocket of unvaccinated population across the world is generating new variants,
  11. far too many people assuming that if their country is vaccinated, the issue is solved. unfortunately, it's global ... every pocket of significant population size generates variants. every variant has the potential to break any existing vaccine. any vaccination done can be undone by this process. covid is endemic now. it will take years (if ever entirely possible) to eradicate it. more likely we'll always be dealing with it. annual boosters or new versions of a vaccine that has to keep dealing with the tracked variants of most concern or prevalence. i've noticed a lot of USA folk having tr
  12. business looked very influential in earlier decisions about how UK government was going to move and when. there's been a resistance to making moves that might alter a way of life (conserving, being conservative) which, ironically, result in more intricate and fundamental changes to how life needs to be lived because it's picking around the edges of issues and being prolonged, slow, ineffective, repetitive and a 'new normal' that wasn't wanted, intended or just goes a long way from the starting point as a result. the hard and fast approach looks reckless, as though lacking inspiration or n
  13. there's some suggestion that what currently passes as conservative in the UK is not as it would be historically described as being. a big clue on that front is old conservative politicians popping up and saying they fucked it. i suspect we're getting a distorted form of conservative approach that isn't conserving as much as it's flailing and trying not to get killed off completely. inherent lack of ability in those in government is a factor, brexit as a priority for choosing cabinet members is another, as is a presumption and portrayal that progressive attitudes are bad because they highlight
