How did the shaving forums change your life? Aside from shaving, of course. And yeah, I like to write forums and not fora. Personally: 1) Photography. Here’s the first picture I posted in August 2006 on B&B: What prompted me to dust off my D70, buy a macro lens and get off my ass and work was Richard’s (Rustyblade from SMF) great SOTD photographs. 2) Pipe smoking. A friend of mine was interested in pipe smoking and made me try it, but if I persevered with it, it is thanks to Rick and his DDoD posts. Rattray’s Old Gowrie and Red Rapparee which I discovered thanks to him remain my favourite tobaccos. 3) Absinthe. I had always wanted to try absinthe and always thought it was forbidden. Thanks to Bargepole from SMF, I was able to buy my first bottle. 4) Perfumes. Duh.
