I seen Sherlock look at Watson in the British version of Sherlock Holmes (don't remember the actors name), it was some time in the second season, and he knew that Watson had shaved with en electric shaver.

Just out of curiosity, is it actually possible to tell if someone shaved with an electric or manual? Besides cuts ect. Which might occur more for someone who uses a manual.

Possibly the warm water, aftershave smell.

Or not being able to get all the places an electric razor can get. 

I've noticed foil shavers are pretty close.

One big difference is at the end of the day when the hair grows out a little.  An electric razor cuts the hair flat.  A blade seems like it cuts at angle.  At least that's what I think.  Because with electric I can move my hands across my face.  With a blade, it gets caught by a sharper edge on all the hairs.  Maybe the blade is at an angle or maybe it's because I tend to go in only one direction.   I did hear your supposed to relather and then shave in the opposite direction for a "proper" shave.

I need to get back to this...

Writing things down and having the plan listed out is good though.
Having several routine variations would be good.

Always having something to write down ideas is good.
Working in pencil?



The part that's missing now is having the list right there.  Technology doesn't seem to really help much, unless it becomes more of a project.

You may well have "needed" to get back to something, but "this" clearly isn't it.  ::)

Wrong thread perchance?
