was scrolling down just to find this comment. switching to a safety razor changed my life for the better!

guys; seriously, try using a safety razor. you get a much better shave, and a much cheaper shave as well. you can get sample packs and figure out which blade works best for you too.

a good safety razor only costs $35 or so and will last a lifetime. once you figure out the brand of razor you prefer, you can get several years supply of those as well for very, very cheap.

I got these:

Merkur Long-Handled Safety Razor ($32.70)

Razor Blade Sampler Pack ($6.25)

This is the cheapest pen that BIC makes:

It's press fit. This looks like every disposable pen ever. Here's another:

This is what is in the coffee mug at the doctor's office with his name on it and they say "keep it". Here's the "Clic Stic", another classic, also press fit:

Now once you start getting up to this level you get threads:

These are clearly meant to be refilled, and it's even listed as a feature. This is probably what OP was thinking of. These types of pens are extremely common, and yet, I don't think they're more common than the ones above to the point you could call them "most pens".

Up in my office I've got some pens that I bought off amazon like 10 years ago. They are truly trash. They have a threaded back end that barely holds the whole thing together. I looked and looked, but can't find a picture of any of these. Perhaps they will be worth money some day. Anyway, that's what I was thinking of, but apparently they're not very common.

And with that, I've just spend 20 minutes looking at pictures of pens so I guess I should get back to work.

edit - I realized I got totally sidetracked. Yes, you'll notice the press-fit ones usually use a pretty soft plastic for the "press" part, even if they use a harder plastic for the tube. Some of the Bics use the same material (medium hardness) for both the tube and the press part; I imagine these are really efficient because they only have to keep that one material. The ones I mention above used hard plastic for both the end and the tube, which is probably why they had to make it threaded. These are all design decisions that achieve some inscrutable internal marketing requirement, but they are also probably the cheapest way they could be made at whichever factory makes them.

This little epiphany literally came to me in the shower this morning. It is a distillation/unification of one of the underlying lessons taught by all the books, articles, and webinars I have recently read/listened to/watched, including but not limited to:

Willpower Doesn't Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success by Benjamin Hardy (

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey (actually I am just barely getting into this one) (

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown (

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondō (

Try taking Psyllium Husk before you go to bed. I use 3 tablespoons mixed with orange juice (recently switched to lemon juice and water to cut down on the sugar.) I used to have perpetual mud-shit as well- despite my substantial fiber intake. Now, my shits have satisfying bulk and there's very little wiping involved. The mud-shit is encased in the mucilage formed by the Psyllium Husk; the Husk is not digested and has a purely mechanical action in the body. It is perfectly safe and can also help reduce cholesterol levels.

Such. Satisfying. Shits.

Edit: Use plenty of water/juice when mixing your Husk. Mix with a little liquid initially to form a sludge at the bottom of your glass, then mix with the rest of the liquid. This prevents caking/dust. Good technique with hot chocolate as well. Staying well hydrated throughout the day helps immensely.

There is a company that trademarked the term "Corporate Family" (you can find it on the USPTO), and the dude also wrote books about "family", "children", and "siblings" in the business setting.

Here is from one of their books (link for proof at the bottom):


>Every business is a corporate family. It doesn’t matter if your company has ten employees or ten thousand; the relational bonds within the organization are very similar to those in the basic family unit. Executive leaders who guide the company are like parents: setting expectations, developing skill sets and habits, checking progress, and rewarding good effort. And all employees experience varying degrees of sibling rivalry as they look to the “parents” for instruction and guidance, strive to meet expectations, vie for attention, and even test limits.


>When you enter any business, you should find a group of people working together with a shared purpose to fulfill a set of objectives. Whether the business is a bakery, a bank, or an international investment firm, all members operate within their unique culture, depending on each other to uphold responsibilities and looking to the “head” for direction. By definition, a family is a group that has commonality, typically comprised of parents and their children. In a sense, every business is like a family—we call this your “Corporate Family.”

I love mine. I've had it for a year and a half., Instead of scooping every other day, I just replace the bag once every few days.

The smell can escape from the bag, but I generally throw some baking soda on top of the litter (which gets mixed in by the box doing its thing) which minimizes it.

One of the best things about it is that it makes the litter last forever. Since it's passively cleaning itself at all times, more thoroughly than we can with a scoop, you don't have to dump litter after a few weeks because its being less effective. I just top up the litter once a month.

A few words of advice if you opt to try it.

One, the pictures you see in the reviews. . . where all the litter is bunched up by the ramp were overfilled. When you set it up initially, fill it to the fill line incrementally with it plugged in and running.

Two, the motor will last much longer if you use a lighter weight cat litter. I use a walnut cat litter which does the job exceptionally.

There is a fantastic book (technically it's a graphic novel I think) called "Here" by Richard McGuire that is basically this premise. It's a story presented visually, and it's about the exact same "place" over the course of billions of years. He has a beautiful art style and it's a great reading experience.

Amazon link for more info:

Take a read of "The One World Schoolhouse" by Sal Khan (of Khan Academy). You can get it for less than $1 on Amazon (used).

He goes over why our school systems are they way they are, how to better optimize them, and more. Really fantastic book and a pretty quick read.

That is a good Idea.

So, when you are on the desk, you not really need a wireless charger,

But you could use it on some case that is more different,

Like, when you drive a car, when you are having a meeting with some one,

When you try to focus on some thing and you don't want to pay much attention on the phone location,.

that is all using.

So, I guess that is a good design for today's using.

I understand some not good charger dis pointed you .

So I should give you a suggest on what is good.

Then the focus on one point, and try to make it exllent, that is good.

Waterproof, how can a products said he is waterproof. this one can .

Not that I would recommend this for a plane, but your new best friend

I have a couple of pricey fountain pens but for day-to-day use I like the Lamy Safari:

It's not a gold nib so it's not as nice to write with, but much more durable and something that I'm not terrified to take around with me.

They take both cartridges and a (sold separately) ink reservoir, which is nice because you won't have to invest in liquid ink unless you're sure you want to keep using them.

>The Puppy Pinata has the shape of a cute brown and white puppy sitting happily with his blue collar. Each Puppy Pinata measures 7 inches wide, x 16 inches long x 18 inches tall and is made of tissue paper and cardboard. The Puppy Pinata is great for not only a child's birthday party but also for your dogs birthday!

better be good or THIS could happen to ya...

u/frumundacheeze · 1 pointr/Showerthoughts

I had a bottle of Pilot Iroshizuku that I refilled at work regularly.

There are people who enjoy good pens ( cough r/fountainpens *cough ) and good inks.

There are dozens of us! DOZENS

It's called Demon's Plague. It's a zombie apocalypse book, but unlike every other one it takes place in a semi-realistic version of Medieval England instead of a modern / military setting. When I say "Semi-Realistic," it means a low-fantasy world where the cities and characters are fictional, but the weapons, places, and technology are authentic or at least plausible within the setting. No magic, dragons, or other fantasy creatures. The zombies are heavily inspired by Max Brooks, no runners. I also did my best to avoid common tropes for the genre. Characters are intelligent and learn quickly how to handle the infected. And best of all, the story focuses on exactly zero children or babies.

It's available on Amazon now in digital and paperback.

> Some kind of universal blade system for razors?

Yes and its amaing. You can use double edge safty razors made 50 years ago and its just as compatible as ones made today.

I think this is the one I use:

Then I buy Derby 100 count blades off ebay or amazon (Make sure they are double edge)

They are literally less than $0.10 each.

this graphic novel might interest you! takes one space (currently a living room) and hops back and forth from past to the future... oh the impermanence!

u/johntclark44 · 2 pointsr/Showerthoughts

They are German-made and available in the US, if that is what you're getting at. Couple those with some Col. Conk shave soap ( and you're good to go!
