/r/wicked_edge has lots of great advice. I'll boil a lot of it down for you though..

  1. Stop using the 17-bladed nuclear-powered vibrating cartridge monsters with extra lubricating strip and kung-fu grip. Similarly, no electric shavers. They're really electric hair-ripper-outers. Not kidding. Kick it old school, like your grandfather. Look at a double-edge safety razor, or if you're really looking to go all-in, consider a straight razor.

  2. Think about your shaving cream. Does it come out of a can using aerosol? Maybe rethink that too then. Plenty of options out there that don't involve chemical-laden aerosol-propelled goo. You can even really turn the clock back with a cup/bowl/mug and brush setup to whip up a nice lather. I'm a fan of Taylor of Old Bond Street. But, I've also used DR Harris products, and they're quite nice as well. One of the side benefits of my former job was all the trips to London, so I could just stop into the ToBS shop on Jermyn Street. Sadly, those days are past, so I rely on the kindness of co-workers that still go over. :) It's easy enough to get their products in the US, it just costs a bit more.

  3. If you go the DE route, get a sample pack of different blades. Different blades work differently on different guys. For me, Derby blades are death. For others, they're amazing. For me, I work well with Astra, or can manage Feathers if I'm really careful (they're super sharp). My best blade though, has been a Personna medical prep blade.

  4. Shave in passes. Do a with-the-grain pass, followed by an across-the-grain pass. If you're really not there yet, you can add an against-the-grain pass, but that's a pretty advanced move. Remember - you're doing multiple passes. You don't need to remove every bit of hair the first pass. You don't press the razor into your face (as you're probably used to!). This razor has heft, and a blade that's really sharp. You're accustomed to a lightweight razor that has blades that are as dull as a hunk of cardboard compared to your garden variety DE blade.

  5. Use a quality aftershave. Try to avoid ones that contain alcohol, as it dries out the skin. I love the Nivea sensitive skin stuff. I can get it for way cheaper than that link shows at Walgreens, Target or Wegmans though.

    Many folks will try to sell you on the economics here, and how much money you'll save by shaving this way. While possible, it's not necessarily so. One can go bonkers and spend hundreds on the best gear if they wish. BUT, you don't have to.

    For me, I use a $30 brush from with a $5 mug from Target. My cream (ToBS Jermyn St) runs about $15 a tub, which lasts me probably 6-9 months. My daily shaver is a $30 Edwin Jagger, and my blades run about $30 for a 100-pack. I get 2-3 shaves from each blade.

    If you run the numbers, you'll likely come out ahead by going to DE, get better shaves, and have better skin as well. It sure was cheaper for me. I used to go through a cartridge a week. So, that's 4 carts a month. I was spending $30-ish every other month on 8-packs of cartridges, or about $3.75 per week. Nowadays, that's 2 blades a week, at ~$0.30/blade, that's $0.60/week in blades. That's a massive savings alone.

    You can do the ROI analysis for yourself. Take into account what you'd spend on shaving supplies, and calculate at which points the cost lines cross (ie break-even).

The brand that I recommend has been Under Armor BoxerJock 9". They are incredibly light, breathe well, comfortable, and will work well for multiple days of wear at a time.

To add to what neoshade stated in regards to blisters, generously powder your boots. Depending on what my goal is for hiking/ruck marching, I vary between the Nike SFB or the Rockies SV2. Your feet are incredibly important and a few bad blisters will really mess you up. If you can deal with the heat, I would strongly advise wearing 2 pairs of socks while you are hiking. Obviously, you still need to change your socks, and your boots will be tighter, but it's totally worth it.

Also, boot companies make boots, insole companies make insoles. Spending a few extra dollars on some quality insoles may save you a lot of pain down the road. I rucked and ran with poor support and developed plantar fasciitis. It's no fun and it will always be an issue for me. I spent quite a bit of money on my orthotics and while it doesn't help my feet breath that well, it definitely helps with support.

Putting Iodine in your water doesn't exactly have the best taste. You should try it out before you go out on this journey. Get used to it. I've seen people gag on it which only leads to further dehydration. I have heard people recommend the LifeStraw. I haven't tried it yet, but some of you may appreciate it.

To save on space and weight I don't even use a sleeping bag. I got a water resistant blanket and got a zipper sewn onto it. Then, I use a water resistant poncho and wrap myself in it so I'm relatively water protected on all sides.

u/OVNEV · 2 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

Get a safety razor and a box of 100 blades for like $30 will last you a few years if you shave like twice a week. A straight razor is too expensive IMO, they are like 200 dollars and you have to strop them. Get something like this with a blade sampler pack. I think Feather is the best blade but people have many different opinions on blades. A sampler pack will help you choose what you like the best. As always, check out /r/wicked_edge as well.

Most of the time I'm living in a flat so what I do it use a quick detailer (US link / UK link) and microfibre (US link / UK link) to keep things clean between proper washes. In fact I keep a bottle of quick detailer and a one of glass cleaner in the car at all times (I wrap a microfibre cloth around the spray head and put the combo in the driver/passenger door pocket).

Basically if you can catch any big, obvious dirt e.g. bird crap, early then it makes things easy.

If you manage to get some time, putting on a good coat of really hard wearing wax (US link / UK link) or sealant (US link / UK link) will be really helpful. It should last a year and make cleaning with quick detailer much easier.

As for the headlights, the yellow colour comes from the plastic oxidising. You need to scrub away that layer and then protect it. Toothpaste works quite well but there are dedicated products like (US link / UK link). Afterwards I'd apply some 303 Aerospace protectant (US link / UK link) which is also great for the interior plastic.

There's something on Amazon called an Elephant Ear. $30 seems a little much for a plastic bottle and some tubing, but it's got to be cheaper than a doctor. I've used mine three times in three years and each time, out plopped an impressive, firm wad of ear gunk along with a little "pop!", followed by deliciously crisp hearing. It's awesome.

At this point, I look forward to impacted wax just to get the satisfaction of cleaning it out.

You forgot foot proximity and direction. The closer feet are between two people conversing show a great deal of comfort between the two. The direction that the feet are facing are also good indicators of if that person is interested in you or the conversation. For instance, if you are telling them about how awesome the duck billed platypus is and their feet are toward the door while their upper body is facing you that is a good indicator this person wants to leave. Leg crossing can be a sign of discomfort and is often associated with shielding. Shielding is when someone feels discomfort or nervous and essentially builds a barrier between them and the source of discomfort. Crossed arms, crossed legs, maybe putting a purse or drink between the source and themselves. If in mid conversation you mention your impressive video game collection and the girl in question, who has been leaning close to you all night, starts to lean back in her chair, crosses her legs and arms, and places her hand on her neck she might not be too impressed. Neck touching can also be a good indicator of nervousness and discomfort. Women often touch their suprasternal notch when nervous, it can be very casual maybe with the index and middle finger while their arms are crossed. Neck touching is a soothing gesture, it can lower heart rate and blood pressure.

The big thing about all of this is finding a baseline of body language actions people do. None of this is written in stone, some people might just touch their neck or cross their legs. If in a bar a girl might not feel comfortable with the crowd but are interested with you.

If you want a reference for all of this I got it from Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlin's "What Every Body is Saying". Joe Navarro worked for the FBI as an interrogator. Navarro was called "The Human Lie Detector. It wont directly teach you how to pick up girls, however it will teach you how to tell of someone doesn't feel comfy around you or with what you are saying. Another good thing to study is Paul Ekman's website on micro gestures in the face. It costs about $70 to subscribe, but you learn a lot.

The 48 Laws of Power because everyone will, at some point, be involved in power-centered relationships, would it be personal or professional.

I work in a high-conflict-prone environment and this is the single most useful peace of literature that I own.

It's very easy to read, it's based on historical anecdotes (that always come in handy when you need to tell a story), and it's self-critical.

gold bond is great and useful for everyday use

u/scubanarc · 3 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

It's hard for me to not mention 4 important items that every man should have in their shaving kit:

merkur 180 long handled razor

feather blades, the sharpest you can buy

For sensitive skin and a close shave, this combo is hard to beat. Bonus items if you really want to shave well:

proraso, numbs the pain

boar bristle brush, really makes the lather

Wet shaving FTW!

u/_JustinCase · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

They make special tenderizers for that purpose, things like this, I've got one and it's awesome.

u/Whiskeybuck · 3 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

I've spent half my life in enterprise and although all these comments have some validity, the truth is, it's important to know when to take shit and from whom. I didn't play the politics game at first and paid dearly. Long story short, when you enter your next job, it is entirely important to be needed and forget liked. That may or may not happen. And for the love of all things, read this:

It changed my career path.

u/caulfield45 · 33 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

Anyone interested in a community on this should check out /r/bodyweightfitness

There are also some good books with similar progressions and ideas like You Are Your Own Gym or Overcoming Gravity

u/tecz0r · 2 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

Hey there buddy, I think this is an excellent question. I've researched it myself and found that THIS is supposedly a very good source of information. It's on my nightstand although I haven't read it yet.

u/TerdSandwich · 0 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

You can get a super cheap water filter straw that was originally designed for 3rd world countries.

I highly recommend it over the expensive alternatives

u/swaggerbiscuit · 8 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

I shave in the shower all the time. Get a shower mirror that holds water in the back. It will keep the mirror warm and prevent it from fogging. Works like a charm, cost me 20 bucks

Shower Mirror

I have had it for years, even reinstalled it in different showers a number of times

u/ColdIceZero · 4 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

I asked this same question here on reddit. Someone recommended this book:

I liked it. I still have it on my shelf. I feel like it helped me get through law school.

u/Hellbilly_Slim · 5 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

For those who are interested in reading a little bit more on the subject of body language, I read the book What Everybody is Saying a few years ago and found it fairly interesting.

u/MpOoNwEeYr · 2 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

I never bit my nails, but for other habits I found this book very useful.

u/GregorDeth · 3 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

Something like this, buy whichever one you can find that's the cheapest and you like the most

u/ALetterFromHome · 10 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

OP you would probably be better off asking in /r/MMA or /r/boxing for some better answers.

It sounds like you will be fine with a regular free-standing punching bag like this. Your downstairs neighbors won't be too crazy about it, but unless youre planning to do full 30-60 min training sessions every day I wouldn't worry too much. Just don't decide to go beast on it at 3am.

Do you have a balcony? You might be able to buy a bag + stand and put it on your balcony if there is enough room. However, this can also be quite noisey, but again, if you just want it to just beat up for a few minutes out of the day I really wouldn't worry. Thing is, you might really get into it and want to start training, but cross that bridge when you get to it.

Be sure to have some wrist/hand protection. I've fucked up my wrists a good few time taking naked fury hailmakers into heavy bags.

48 laws of power
By Robert Greene

I wouldn't be where I am today with out it. It teaches you how to deal with power and how it works. It's also an amazingly interesting read. I read it twice a a few years ago and I still flip through it once in a while. It's on sale now at Amazon I believe I bought it for 25$ back then.

u/Dr_Mercury · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

The Way of the Superior Man - Don't ask questions, read it and you will understand.

u/tdellaringa · 2 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

Been doing it for years. And you are not wasting water, let's face it, you're going to stand there anyway. But you need a good shower mirror, and this one is it. About to replace mine with a new one, which I have worn out.

u/magamaleh · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

Extending off of this article, this is when a steak tenderizer can really come in handy as well.

u/theantipode · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

Got mine on Amazon. You might have to ask someone who works in your local book store where it'd be, or have them look it up.

u/cas18khash · 17 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

Every man should read

This is the book he draws from. It's a life changing book.

Cars made after 2017 (a lot today as well) have laminated glass making this not possible. Soon those glass breakers many people carry will be nothing more than clutter in your glove box. Laminated glass needs to be cut out to be removed. So just don't drive Into the water any time soon

Gimme karma.

u/BeetleB · 2 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

Get this book and read it.

There's a lot of advice out there, and you won't be able to tell which is reliable and which everyone believes simply because it sounds logical. The book discusses the science behind willpower.

It may not have that many tips, but I think it's key to understanding why certain attempts in the past lead to failure.

u/HaveFunDying · 3 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

I recommend a Life Straw. Easier to carry than a large supply of water, and you don't have to worry about freshness. Also, if there is an apocalypse and the power grid fails, we have 10 days until all the nuclear power plants in the U.S. become unstable and kill us. So don't really worry about it.

u/Gluetius_Maximus · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

This is the shower head I bought when I moved into my place.

It's filtered too. Just take out the restrictor inside and the pressure should be pretty strong. For me, the water pressure actually hurts a bit in the beginning. Once you feel the pressure is getting weaker, just change the filter.

This is actually quite a timely post. I just bought a bunch of leather cleaning products and conditioning for my leather jackets and boots.

These guys are being flaming assholes. Some people vent through physical exertion. It is necessary to learn to control your anger to the point where you will not physically lash out at something or someone that doesn't deserve it. However, it seems to me that's exactly what you're trying to do here. If you aren't at a place yet where you can just suppress the destructive urge when you're angry, you're at least at a place where you can understand when you're calm that wrecking shit isn't okay.

To that end, a [](standing punching bag) might be helpful to you. They can be a bit on the expensive side, though. Failing that, keep in mind your pillow could always use an aggressive fluffing.

All that said, this should ideally be a temporary measure until you get to the point where you can suppress your desire to destroy things even when you're angry. If your anger is bad enough that you're not able to stop yourself from doing things you'll regret later, sooner or later that's going to come back to bite you in a big way. There are classes for that kind of thing, and they're not the farce the memes and movies make them out to be.

Good luck on your journey of self-improvement. Don't listen to the obnoxious dicks that want to bring you down just because you're not finished yet.
