Parts of your head? Dude, I just told y'all that I'm shaving my jewels, and you worry about your head? Who cares about a head? A few scars on the head would be cool. That's something I might even do on purpose.

I bought a second safety razor, so that I would have one in each of my homes. A bit extravagant--contradicting the whole point about thrift.

Sometimes right-handed, sometimes left-handed.

If you sit on your hand until it goes numb it is like being shaved by a stranger...

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous...

Learned, not natural.

I'm naturally right-handed. When I played baseball I taught myself to bat left-handed; I studied what I did (naturally) right-handed and reflected it.

As a magician I've learned many sleights right-handed, then taught myself to do them left-handed as well.

More recently, I've taken up other tasks left-handed: tying shoelaces and shaving being two of them.

Building new neural pathways is good for the brain, I hear.

(What's funny about the shoelace tying is that it started out with me having to concentrate to do it left-handed, then passed through a stage in which I would start one way and be somewhat confused how to continue, and, finally, reached the stage in which I can simply think how I want to start and the rest is automatic (i.e., habitual).)

Just me, or is this bordering on too much information?

I'm sure there's a great joke with a setup like that, but am thinking it might get me banned...

That's a new word on me. Ambidexterity, yes. Not so sure on the osity thing.
Then again I'm English, so bear with me.

I shave with a new razor, never a bic, but not expensive... My father taught me that shaving your face dry was the best way to do it although sometimes a bit painful. It seems to remove more dry or aged skin and promotes a more youthful look. Smile

It's just you. We have no secrets here. We all have fifty posts. (Except for Nairb.) I shave my equipment, like a modern man should, and am now using a safety razor to do so, and recommend others do the same.

Dare I ask why?

When in high school our swim team went to state, so we all decided to shave our legs to reduce drag (a few did their heads, this was years before that was cool). So one night after practice we took razors into the showers and did our legs. It's was like the shower scene in Psycho...blood soaked water flowing into the drains. It was like a slaughterhouse. After that I personally cannot imagine taking a razor sharp object anywhere near the parts of my body I hold most dear.

Now THAT would involve too much information!

The same reason as shaving your legs. Reducing drag.

If I wanted to wax poetically, I guess I would say that the phrase 'Shorn Scrotum' sort of just rolls off the tongue.

Unless you envision yourself rubbing Turtle Wax on your car whilst reciting "The Raven" (or, possibly, "Casey at the Bat"), I think that you meant that you would wax poetic.

Can't it be both? "Once upon a midnight dreary (scrape), as I pondered weak and weary (scrape)...."

Depending on what you're waxing, Ginsberg's "Howl" may be more appropriate.
