    Default Threw out my first blade!

    Howdy all,
    I am just getting into this wet shaving scene. My brother, who is also part of this forum, introduced me to the world of a close shave and I had no choice but to try it myself and could not believe that wet shaving is not more widely practiced. As the title indicates, I am as fresh as they come so I have a lot to learn. I have been trying to read topics, but I get stuck at a lot of these abbreviations and whatnot.
    About me, I'm from Canada and I am finishing of my science degree in university. Big fan of hiking, waterskiing, and I have always enjoyed keeping reptiles and fish.
    From what I have read thusfar, I look forward to enjoying this forum.
    Cheers,
    mr. s

    Welcome to the B&B. Always good to see more science majors around a place.

    There's an FAQ around here on all the abvs that might help you out.

    Welcome aboard, and remember that those who do not major in science take grave offense at being non-science majors.
