I realized today that I'm at a point where I'm really comfortable and happy with my current shave collection. I thoroughly enjoy all of my razors, soaps, and brushes and get great shaves from all of them in any combination. Knowing this, I was looking around the Nook considering what I might like to use for tomorrow's shave and realized that aside from the razor (new acquisition TV SuperSpeed) I really have no strong feelings one way or another. So I got to thinking, what might be the best course of action for nights or mornings like this where I would be happy with any combinations or items? A Random Shave Generator of course! After a bit of searching online and in the Google Play store for a random number generator that could perform up to three (soap, brush, and razor) random numbers with separate sets of numbers to draw from, I came to the conclusion that what I wanted didn't exist out in cyberspace, or at least not easily accessable, not unless I was willing to learn programming and make it myself.

Then it hit me. I ran into the bedroom and dug around under the bed, and there they were, low and behold, my RPG dice.

A D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, and D20.

Seeing as I have (or will have by the end of the next couple weeks)
  • 9 razors
  • 7 brushes
  • 14 soaps

I should be able to work things out with these dice. Sure the number's aren't perfectly even, but we all need some reason or another for RAD, SAD, and SBAD, right? Biggrin

Haha. I remember dices like that. Used to play rpg with some friends for more than 20 years ago.

Btw if you fumble with your dices, do you give yourself a extra bad shave with our worse products? Tongue

You should probably have your significant other on your arm and a crowd cheering you when you roll.




Great idea!

Could write an excel simulator to do the same Biggrin

Actually I might write one seeing as I have to practise writing them anyways.

I tried this, but it seems I need to freshen up on my Excel computations. But since I usually wake up then immediately shower and shave the dice are more handy than having to turn the computer on and run a program.

The geek in me absolutely loves this idea. Not sure where my dice are, but this sounds like a great way to shake things up.

Ah, but the excel simulator could print out a whole month's randomized schedule.

A great idea. Blades should be taken into equation as well.

Now, who's going to write it? Tongue

Where' the fun in knowing a months worth of shaves ahead of time? I think I like entering into the unknown each morning. I tried it out just on soap this morning since I wanted to use my new razor and all this talk of Semogue brushes (again) made me want to pull out the SOC. Tomorrow though will be the first day for a totally random shave. I still with only Polsilver Super Iridiums for blades though since they work great in everything for me. Aftershaves I'm keeping to my own choices as well since I feel those are mod influenced by my mood.

SWMBO said that if I need a Shaving Forum to shave, I'm in deep do-do. Biggrin

Great idea Anthony!

I agree. While a program would be efficient, it's much more fun to roll some dice!

It just isn't the same playing craps on a computer after all.
