    How long ago was it when Barber's shaved customers with one of those cut throat razors?

    I'm sure HSE would ban those if they haven't already been banned

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    The feminists say they can do any job a guy does

    Such as HGV & bus driving

    Local bus companies even hold female driver recruitment days lol

    I remember even in the 1980s the barbers my Dad used to take me & my brother to occasionally women cutting our hair.

    Normally the owner was cutting at one chair & a women at the other.

    I suppose to left-handed people, one's "scissors hand" would vary.

    This is the main reason why I would never use razors to remove stubble - cue having to use toilet paper to cover up the cuts on the face.

    I would personally use scissors, and I am talking about in my own bathroom. I might ask for a shaver for Christmas to combat my fear of shaving.

    The barber's shop I mentioned in a previous post was quite dark and dingy. The shop was closed for a number of years when the guy retired, then it was taken over by a woman. She had it spruced up, and it was much brighter and cleaner inside. She was quite an attractive little blonde, so I had my hair cut there a fair few times--early to mid 80s. It was a shame as she didn't seem to get much custom, and one day I went along and it was shut up. She might have gotten more trade if she had cut women's hair, but she only did men. I was rather sad to see it close as I could tell she had put quite a bit of money into it. So far as I am aware, the premises were never taken over by anyone else, and it has been converted into a house.
