What are some good cheap alternatives to the Mach 3 razor

I've used the Mach 3 razor on my face for the longest time and I have been very happy with its performance. But Gillette's recent price increases are just not something I can absorb in my current economic situation. What are some good cheap alternatives that would be available in NYC-area stores?

Why did you do this to me, Tom?

Where can I get Tom's of Maine calendula shaving cream? It seems they don't make it anymore!!! If I can't get it, do you know of a product that is very similar? This was the best shaving cream I've ever used and have never found anything that can compare.

What's the source of this quote?

I'm looking for the source of this remembered anecdote I heard about 30 years ago: A famous letter was to the editor of the Times of London read, in its entirety: "This morning while shaving, I broke 100. What's par?" This apparently released a flood of responses. The letter was published much longer ago, I'd guess, and it might not have been the Times, either — perhaps it was in the journal Notes & Queries. Search at Times or Notes & Queries fails to find it, however. It was in Britain, in any case. [more inside]

How to be young again?

As an 18-year old male I received a free razor from Gillette. Internet digging tells me Gillette uses an outside source to determine men's birthdays, but no one actually knows. There are tons of blog comments, all of which can be summarized as either "Maybe it's Selective Service" or "Yeah, I got one too, X years ago!" How do I get myself back on the list of 18-year olds for the next razor shipment?

"Honey, I noticed a little fuzz this morning..."

Growing up with a mindset that bodyhair is icky and no one should see any of it ever ever ever, I now find myself questioning just how crazy most people get about removing it, or discovering it on their partners. I feel so naive about the whole thing, it's embarrassing. Are women expected to be silky-smooth every day? Is leg stubble horribly mortifying? Do men run away screaming when they find unsightly patches? (Well, probably not.) [more inside]

Skin care advice for guys

Help me improve my skin care routine. I'm a guy in my mid-twenties and here's what I currently do: shave, then use a tea tree oil-based facial wash and finish up with a moisturising lotion. I do this once or twice a day. The moisturising lotion fixed my somewhat dry and flaking skin but I still have some issues with acne, especially in the area where I shave. I use a Gillette Fusion with new blades and Gillette Fusion shaving gel. Getting rid of the acne (which isn't too serious but still annoying) is priority number one but if there are other things I could improve then please let me know.
