    Jesus What a Strange Thing to Do

    3 oz Bacardi 8 rum
    1/2 oz fresh lime juice
    Sugar syrup to taste
    Shake and serve over crushed ice.

    Somehow appropriate that this was Hemingway's favorite drink, although he surely would not approve.


    20 minutes Norelco Body Groomer, attachment 3
    Get in shower
    20 minutes Norelco Body Groomer, no attachment
    Finish with Gillette Mach 3.

    Job done. Wife skeptical at best, hostile at worst.

    Well. Who can explain the depth of weird obsessions?

    TMI my man, TMI.

    She came come to love the smooth legs. My advice is to start cycling prior to marriage so she can't tell you to stop shaving because she knows when the knot is tied.

    My GF was skeptical too, but now I'm single so I guess I have no excuse. Well, this weekend will be tights for sure. Maybe after that.
    Bring the pain.

    My G/F was skeptical at first..... but after she got use to it (maybe a week or so) she loves it. We were looking at pictures from 2 years ago when I had leg hair and she actually thought it looked gross with lef hair (I was VERY hairy).

    Met my wife shaved. I stopped shaving during my post-racing burnout. Now I can't convince myself it's worth the time to shave. Kinda fits with the steel bike in the races

    If I could snap my fingers and be done every other day, I'd shave though.

    It turns out that fur on your legs is a useful evolutionary adaptation. It keeps you amazingly warm, which I never realized until this morning when I woke up without it.

    Just looking it, you would not realize what a difference it makes.

    A brain that can select clothing is a further evolutionary adaptation

    True. Although without the nint it is called a "daiquiri" or "run daiquiri" or "daiquiri natural". The original daiquiri was a respectable and manly drink. The frozen banana-strawberry slurpee things called daiquiris have ruined it.

    I ordered a daiquiri natural in some hipster bar one night and the bartender looked down her nose and said "we don't have a blender sir, and we only serve classic cocktails." I had to set her straight...

    Sorry to hear about your feeble mind. Maybe you should see a doc about that. I think there are a few on here. Some of em even shave, I hear.
