I bought some razor blades yesterday. Not my normal ones, but new ones from Gillette called Gillette Fusion 5-Blade Razors.

I remember the days when I had to dismantle my razor before inserting a single blade into the contraption without slicing my fingers to pieces. Then it went from one blade to Twin Blades, then Triples, then Quads and now it’s increased to five.

If Gillette increases the number of fucken blades again, they’d be cheaper selling Venetian Blinds with sharpened edges.

Now there’s a business idea for someone.
