Gillette OWNS razors in the USA. I finally started looking at “what’s changed” in razors a week or two ago after years of ignoring that aisles. Gillette is EVERYWHERE and in some stores, you get Gillette or nothing else. An almost total cornering of the market. Gross imo.

Smart idea. I get ads for it sometimes. I don’t care if a company is successful. Heck, I had Gillette stock once way back when I played with stocks.

But I don’t like “too much”. Monopolies annoy me. They’re worse than govts with even less accountability.

god no. Had a friend who wanted it all. Cabin in the woods in Montana. Smokes Marlboro Reds. Drank only Budweiser. Made his own chain mail. Collected swords. And shaved with a straight razor.

I guess he thought it made him manly.

I have a beard because I hate shaving. Luckily, I grow a good one.

I’m 46. Always felt both older and younger than I was. Still do. Never figured out what “my age” is supposed to be like. I look a peer age folks and go “wtf?” most of the time. I just do what I do.
