    Applying Occam's Razor to the observation of nearly identical, but slightly varying, posts on multiple and diverse forums, we may come to a conclusion that is not sinister, but maybe rather sad: there is a genuine person who is weighed down with responsibility for a young sister/daughter, feeling rather lonely, and writing these posts to try and make conversation. The variations between the posts are to protect the identity of the young lady.

    So ease up, lads!

    He/she is all a bit weird really, turned up on UKC/UKH forum a couple weeks ago and posted for suitable waterproof jacket for their child, lots of helpful advice came. Then started two posts called Dealing with tantrums and Kids and unpleasant weather, lots more advice on dealing with kids tantrums but it started to get a bit weird.
    Next thing they disappear from there and turn up asking the same thing here. I felt they were either a total time waster or a troll. Hence my reaction.
    I still have no idea what is going on or who they are, despite their denial they are one and the same. Oh well, I expect they are somewhere else by now, not returned to UKH.

    I’m with you Molehill, very very weird, my worry was that it’s a way for weirdos to meet like minded weirdos and feel that some of the phrasing/ subject matter is weirdo code, perhaps I’m too suspicious but why would someone trawl different forums with the same rubbish

    As you mentioned Bic’s DT lets turn this thread into something useful, I’m a born again Safety Razor user myself, gone are all the plastic contraptions I did use, now on a Wilkinson Sword with Gillette blades, like CD’s and vinyl, the disposable razor was a step in the wrong direction

    Proper razor with double edged blades, shaving brush and a pot of shaving cream. Cheapest and best (especially if you are retired and can't be arsed to shave every day). Those plastic disposable ones are a rip off aimed at people who don't know better and as for aerosols of shaving cream.......aarrgh.

    Anyone brave enough to use an original cut throat razor?

    Have you also binned the BIC biro's and gone back to a fountain pen or even a quill and inkwell?

    As a child it used to fascinate me how Blair the Barber could sharpen a cut throat razor on a leather strap.
    In fact it still does!

    I have a beard, so I do the unbeardy bits with a safety razor, when I go to the barbers for a tidy he uses the cut throat, he reckons it’s not worth taking the chance on yourself, too hard unless you’re ambidextrous
