Bit shite innit
  • War elephants not deployed...yet

  • Safety Razor, what do I need to think about?
  • That's a great call, thank you, I've only been thinking about the handle assuming blades are blades, I'll get a few differnet ones to decide what works best for me

  • Safety Razor, what do I need to think about?
  • Oh Gillette's got far fancier, I'm sure they're on 7+ blades now, I'm not sure what they're all for but they do cost a bit

  • Safety Razor, what do I need to think about?
  • Thanks, I'll check that community out. On vintage razors, there's a good chance I've got a Grandad's razor somewhere that works just fine with current blades, looks like they've not changed design. Should look into that first

  • Safety Razor, what do I need to think about?
  • It looks like even if I set it once and stick with it, it's worth it to go adjustable, they're all reasonably priced and it gives me options later, thanks

  • Safety Razor, what do I need to think about?

    My big stack of cartridge razor blades has just run out and I'd like to replace it with something less wastefull, and from what I hear a safety razor gives a better shave too.

    From what I can see there's no big difference beyond personal preferance on ergonomics, but are there any brands to avoid? Any well regarded? Can I just get anything? Anything I might not have thought about?

    Italian tanks in the Interwar period (1920s and 30s)
  • I think, left to right, that's a Fiat 3000, Renault FT, Schneider CA and Fiat 2000. Expect to be wrong with the first 2 because there where quite a few similar variants

  • *Permanently Deleted*
  • I can never tell with things like this if it's a US fashion trend that hasn't made it out yet or if this is just an internet thing that doesn't really exist. Either way not seen an increase in mustaches

  • Solving the Trolley Problem, the 🦅 🇺🇲 🦅 American® Way™ 🦅🇺🇲🦅
  • It literally says "There is no problem". All the examples you give are problems. You're arguing for drone strikes for shits and giggles

  • Solving the Trolley Problem, the 🦅 🇺🇲 🦅 American® Way™ 🦅🇺🇲🦅
  • This is somewhat of a myth by exageration, the US supported the mujahideen, people seem to equate the Taliban and the mujahideen but only a small subset of them became the Taliban, a good number of them would become the Northen Alliance who would resist the Taliban. And it must be said while the US had been the masters of imperialism lately that's no excuse for Soviet imperialism

  • British sovereign citizen arrests the cops.
  • This is the UK law for citizens arrest really the most important difference between this and a police arrest is the police can arrest you with the intention of finding out IF a crime has been commited, whereas you must know a crime has been commited by the person you're arresting, otherwise it's just kidnapp

  • Brianna Ghey's killers given life sentences for brutal murder
  • They'll be on parole for life if released after the minimum sentence and there's no guarantee they get released after the minimum sentence but the burden of proof would then be on them still being a risk, there's a handful of prisoners (maybe most famously Charles Bronson) who never get released

  • Captain Kirk on continuing to challenge yourself. [Not a meme, just a cool quote]
  • If anyone would like some obstalces, I think I may have picked up too many, going free

  • Post pics of unwashed shelf-stable eggs (this scares the americans)
  • The chicken comes out of the egg, the egg comes out of the cloaca

  • I guess you boys from Temporal Investigations are always on time.
  • I want to see some episode of trek where a temporal agent takes a few attempts to get the timing right for a bad joke, and in a way the doesn't effect the actualy very serious story of the episode

  • Survey reveals tough job market for Gen Z grads due to employer preferences
  • "Small survey finds majority of employers looking for fresh graduates, though as would be expected most graduates need to develop professional skills. Sometimes weird people turn up to interviews, which is sad funny, and every now and then you hire someone who's a bad fit". This is normal

  • The "Baltic Chain", in which 25% of the population of the Baltic states formed a human line hundreds of miles long to protest Soviet domination, 1989
  • You're thinking of Russia, they didn't do well from the break up of the USSR because they were always an extractive empire. The Baltic states gained their independance and I don't think anyone can seriously claim they're worse off

  • When two forms of grotesque revisionism collide
  • Worse than that, conforming slaves got the housing they made, the food they grew

  • When two forms of grotesque revisionism collide
  • Fuck it, this isn't going away, can we appropriate "Northern Aggresion" to mean anti slavery? You want to keep slaves? You're about to get some Northern Agression. It seems justified but that might just be me
