Haha. Reminds me of a skit I was once on TV (MadTV maybe?) they had a razor with like 10 blade on it. First 3 blades cut the hair, the rest just slowly cut into your face until you hit bone hahaha

They should make a razor that doesn't get hair stuck in it. Sure you can tap it against the sink.. but that takes energy.

LFUCKINGOL! I always laughed at the commerical where the guy doing the spot says something like "You thought 3 blades was the max? Wrong! Introducing new Shichk Quatro blah blah blah". I always pictured some guy with a stubbled beard on the edge of seat thinking, "Man, 3 blades is the max! WAIT! WHOA! 4 BLADES?!?!?! MY MIND IS BLOWN".

I actually use the Mach 3, but simply because they sent me a free razor, and I liked the way it worked better than my old one. I can't believe they're actually coming out with 5 blades. Obviously they're trying to just throw gimmicks at something which works fine the way it is.

The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

Holy shit, after reading both of them, the whole thing, I can't believe they actually followed the Onion article that closely. Wow, that's.... weird.

Yea, pretty funny. It's just the people at the onion have that modern day 'journalistic' style down so well.

I guess the people at CNN money don't read The Onion.

Heh...

"The razor, known as the Fusion, has blades spaced 30 percent closer than Gillette's current MACH3Turbo system."
Thats the dumbest thing ever. It'll be annoyingly clogged after like half a swipe and that much harder to unclog. I hope it fails miserably just because its just another one up attempt.

The razor is really done. I mean really what more needs to be done to razors?
It's just marketing gimmicks; dumb, transparent... gimmicks.

But I bet it will work...
