    A Florida woman saved herself from being raped after she pulled a razor from her bra and slashed her attacker’s throat. ​ According to the woman, Kenneth Taylor approached her from a store and the two began to chat. As they walked toward an empty lot, Taylor reportedly pushed the woman to the ground and hit her several times in the face. Luckily, the woman managed to pull a razor from her bra and slice Taylor’s throat. When Taylor fled from the scene, the woman called police to the intersection of North 13th Street and Avenue G in Fort Pierce....

    Tired of paying through the nose for "Gimmick" razors with 2&3 blades that do nothing but clog. Looking into a Ole'fashioned Double edge and have seen a few on E Bay and the bald guy from Pawn Stars latest addition at Walgreens for 20 bucks. Never did electric. Wish I kept my 1st Gillette. Any thoughts?

    LAS VEGAS -- A woman who was the last person seen with a missing 10-year-old Las Vegas girl did appear in a Las Vegas courtroom Friday morning for an alleged attack on a casino co-worker. The judge raised Stokes bail to $600,000 in lieu of expected murder charges in the Jade Morris case. The arraignment for Brenda Stokes, also known as Brenda Stokes Wilson, was delayed after her attorney requested more time to review the case. A prosecutor said blood was found in a car borrowed by Stokes.
  • The precise cut of a razor shave

    06/15/2012 4:21:09 AM PDT · by rawhide · 49 replies
    There is no disputing that a wet razor shave leaves men with far smoother skin than if they had used an electric shaver. But just how much finer a cut is delivered can here be seen in unprecedented detail. Scientists have placed two beard hairs under a scanning electron microscope On the left is one that was cut by a razor - it clearly shows a precise cut. The hair on the right was cut by an electric shaver and, by contrast, is jagged and appears as if it was ripped from its root.

    $100,000 can buy many things: a brand new sports car, a boat, or a ridiculously luxurious vacation, just to name a few. But if you already have a new Audi in your driveway, a yacht at the marina, and just got back from a trip around the world, perhaps you'd rather drop your cold hard cash on a limited edition iridium razor...

    As authorities nationwide warn motorists of the dangers of driving while texting, Florida Keys law enforcement officers add a new caution: Don't try to shave your privates, either. Florida Highway Patrol troopers say a two-vehicle crash Tuesday at Mile Marker 21 on Cudjoe Key was caused by a 37-year-old woman driver who was shaving her bikini area while her ex-husband took the wheel from the passenger seat. "She said she was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit," Trooper Gary Dunick said. "If I wasn't there, I wouldn't have believed it. About 10...

Lovingier said that in response to community concerns, "We re-thought those plans, and we came up with a different plan." The...

    A 90-year-old woman handed in a set of valuable ancient cut throat razors during a police operation to curb knife crime. The pensioner, one of Croydons first traffic wardens, approached her Safer Neighbourhood Team in Purley after seeing their knife arch operation in the town centre last month. The woman was worried the razors could fall into the hands of gang members and spoke to PC James Bland and PCSO Nigel Bond to arrange their collection. But a surprise was in store for the officers when they arrived at the ladys address to find an old suitcase filled with a...

    THESE horrifying knives have been taken off the streets of Coventry in the last 10 days. They are examples of the kinds of blades police and the Evening Telegraph are trying to banish from the city during the One Knife One Life campaign. The campaign, which was launched in the city last week, aims to teach youngsters - and particularly teenage boys - the dangers of knives. Police say young people carry knives to make themselves feel more secure, or because they know other people do. They say they don't think about the potentially devastating consequences carrying a knife can...

In scenes taken straight out of hit romantic comedy Mr and Mrs. Smith starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Juan Espinosa and Irma Contreras fought until their house blew up in a homemade gasoline bomb explosion, the paper said.

    NATIONWIDE knife amnesty to end the carnage on our streets was launched yesterday. The five-week initiative, running throughout the UK, is aimed at repeating the success of Operation Blade, which took thousands of weapons off the streets of Strathclyde in 1993. Justice Minister Cathy Jamieson yesterday vowed it would be just one of many measures to battle knife crime in Scotland. Victims of the scourge have included policeman Lewis Fulton, knifed through the heart in Glasgow in 1994 as he tried to arrest a teenage schizophrenic. Knives are becoming an increasing menace in the hands of young girls, too. Kirsty...

    BATON ROUGE, La. -- A man already on trial for taking a kindergartner hostage was booked with attempted second-degree murder after he leaped up in court and slashed his public defender's face with a razor blade. State district court was in session Wednesday and the defense was about to rest when Barbette Williams wrapped his arms around his court-appointed lawyer Bert Garraway and cut him above the eye and on the neck. "I'm tired of all this ..." Williams exclaimed during the attack, using an obscenity. Officials said the wounds were only superficial, and Garraway walked out of the courtroom,...

For two years I was directly responsible for ensuring that all units at Fairchild, including an attached Washington Air National Guard wing, complied with Air Force regulations and policies governing the preparation and filing of official correspondence including letters and memoranda. My review of the CBS Texas Air National Guard documents convinces me they are fraudulent for reasons that other critics have not yet discussed in...
