    My best ever shave happened when i was reasonably pie-eyed.


    I have yet to truly understand why this was so but i am sure there is a valuable lesson in it somewhere lol.

    Have any of you lot shaved whilst UTI?

    How did it go?

    Can’t say that I have. My guess is that any mistakes would have still hurt, but I just wouldn’t care as much.

    I'm the first to admit suffering from being acronymly challenged. Having several family members that have kidney issues, urinary tract infections happen. I guessed the meaning of UTI being the same as D.W.I which lately has been reissued as D.U.I.

    World Wide Web has less syllables than WWW.

    FTR & FYI, UTI = Under The Influence.

    Don't be confused lol.

    Let me put it another way...

    Remember the scene in Star Wars: A New Hope; where Obi-wan and Luke are using the Marksman-H combat remote to train Luke in the use of the Lighsaber?



    Combat remote=Stubble
    Blind Visor= O'Hara's Irish Pale Ale.
    The Force= Zen Shaving

    As i see it, sometimes if you close your eyes to percieved reality and open them to actuality, amazing things happen.

    Like a BBS shave :)

    I would expect loss of coordination + vasodilator to be a bad combination for shaving. Maybe you were just not in a state to judge how bad it really was?

    I've shaved successfully while impaired. It's not that big of a deal. You tend to slow down and concentrate more, which is the key process one should be focusing on while shaving anyways.

    I've never been drunk enough to think shaving with a straight razor while drunk would be a good idea, so there's that.

    I won't even strop my razor unless 100% sober. Putting a straight to my face while loaded? Never gonna happen. :rolleyes005:

    I have not shaved while under the influence. But I can understand why you had such a great shave while UTI. And which is why I would bet that the next time you shave while UTI it will likely be the worst shave you've ever had. And it would be for the exact same reason the first time was the best.

    Nah. Your first time shaving while snockered left you loose and free and for whatever reason you were able to execute all your moves like never before. Alcohol will do that sometimes. But if you try it again, chances are pretty good that you will approach your shave with a false sense of security from your first shave and the opposite will take place. You'll do things differently and won't even know it because your snockered and it will be a bloodbath. These are words of wisdom that come down from up on high. Heed them. Fear them. You have been warned.
