Wet Shave or Dry?

Wet shave (with shaving cream and a razor)?...



Or dry shave (with an electric shaver)?...


[via]

Which method of shaving do you Bitches prefer?

And have you ever had an old-fashioned wet shave from a barber with a straight razor (aka “cutthroat” razor) and hot towel?...



And do you remember your first shave?

Stripes

A new study suggests STRIPES might be making us ill...


[via]

Scientists warn that stripes in architecture and clothing may trigger migraines and epileptic seizures.

“Vertical orientation of stripes are in general worse than horizontal,” said Dr Dorothée Kasteleijn-Nolst Trenité, an epileptologist of UMC Utrecht.

“Examples of striped patterns that are potentially provocative in daily life are rolling stairs, venetian blinds, striped clothes and buildings.”

Oh dear...

Grease is the Word

Thieves are going after grease...



... and these grease grabbers are stealing it from restaurants. As much as $75 million of grease is illegally siphoned every year.

The demand for fryer oil, aka “yellow grease” is on the upswing. A spike in biofuel prices has increased demand for the golden gunk to be refined into biofuel for cars and trucks.

Recently, two men were arrested for grease theft at a Wingstop restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee. They were set to walk away with over 2,000 pounds of yellow grease, which they could have sold for about $600. 44 similar thefts were reported in that same time period.

“It’s like crack money,” Sumit Majumdar, president of Buffalo Biodiesel Inc. told Bloomberg. “There’s an actual market for stolen oil. It’s almost like a pawn shop or scrap-metal business.”

Lock up your deep fryers, Bitches.

Do You Wear an Apron?

In Canada and the U.S. we call it an "apron." In the U.K., you might hear it referred to as a "pinny." And in Germany, I believe the word is "Schürze." (I hope Herr Mago will correct me if I'm mistaken.)





Do you Bitches wear an apron while cooking or baking or barbecuing?

If so, do you prefer a full frontal coverage apron (as pictured in photo #1) or a half apron (as pictured in photo #2)?

Do you prefer a utilitarian, no-nonsense style or something frilly to flounce about the kitchen?

And finally, do you have any novelty aprons (i.e. aprons with funny images or sayings)?...



Tell us about your aprons, Bitches.
