  1. The razor commercial is like a scene from a 1950's "Brokeback Mountain"

  2. Police have been using deadly force on OWS protestors all this, & last year, here in the USofA. That similar events occur elsewhere makes it so noteworthy? I guess it does due to the US media black out on domestic protests.

  3. The safety razor was a great innovation for men, freeing them from a straight edge razor and the barber shop. Giving them more time for, you know, manly pursuits, like talking about razor blades while fishing and camping.

    'Cause these guys are camping!

  4. I ate capybara in Ecuador. It was surprisingly delicious; much like roast beef.

  5. @Towleroad: Why those constant annoying pop ups at the bottom right of the screen? Why not ease off a bit and just do it occasionally?

  8. Andrew is correct about the bloody pop ups. However, they are MUCH more then just annoying if you are on an iPad. Most of the time they throw a person off the Towleroad website!
