Day 32: Research & Development

When you seeing shaving commercials and they talk about how engineered the blades are and that’s great and all but at the end of the day they talk about the comfort strip which is where they should be researching since it only lasts a sixth of the blades life and you have to ask do the stripes really matter or is shaving just uncomfortable because you don’t know what you’re doing but I guess that would explain all the accidental nicks.
