Almost to 500! I'm not in a hurry though. A few posts a day. Interjecting some knowledge (the little that I have) or my funny, childish humor (of which I have plenty!).
Anywho, heres the deal! I'm going to PIF a lucky guy or gal one Edwin Jagger DE89! Its the smooth handled version. I honestly don't feel like looking up the exact model name, because when I was researching it I could never find a straight answer on the model names of the various 89's. I just bought one, and the smooth handled version is the one that showed up! There is a SLIGHT ding in the top half of the razor head. I was careless one day and nicked it on the sink when I was shaking the water off it. You have to have the razor pretty close to your face to see it. Thats not the reason for the PIF mind you. I have a tough as nails beard and the DE89 requires a little too much work for my tastes to get a close shave. I will also include some surprise goodies, and will buy one tub of cream, or one puck of soap that the winner chooses. I have received a few PIF's here and there, so now its my turn to share the love.
It is next to impossible for me to ship a package out, so that is why I'm calling this the Patience PIF. I don't get home for THREE MONTHS! Not too long, but not too short either!
Heres the game. Guess the date I'm going to reach 500 posts. I'm going to look at my post count every day, but I'm not going to put up any "filler" posts to get there quicker, or take days off to make it last longer. When it happens it happens! If there are multiple entries for the same date, I will do a drawing to determine the winner of those who picked that date.
The winner and I will stay in touch, and when it's time for me to head home I will get the details (address, and soap/cream choice). If that winner can't be patient and buys a DE89 (please be honest!) I'll PIF it to the second place winner(if the winning date is August 10 for example and several members chose August 10, I'll do a second drawing using those members who chose August 10. If the winner was the sole chooser of August 10, I'll take the two closest dates to August 10th above and below that date, and do another drawing. Make sense???) If the second place "winner" couldn't be patient....OK you get the idea!!! I would prefer date guesses to be posted in this thread and not as a PM. That way you guys can see the commonly picked dates...maybe you will pick one or be a Maverick and choose your own! Good luck!
P.S. Hint Hint...I put up about 2 or 3 posts a day. Some days more, some days less. You do the Math/Guessing!!!
P.P.S.S.??? I will ship this ANYWHERE, as long as the shipping cost isn't too too ridiculous!
