Taxes done!

I always find it amusing when these tax preparation companies run ads on how difficult tax forms are.

It took me about 30 minutes to do my federal taxes, and I have to fill out the full 1040 and Schedules C and SE. State taxes are almost a no-brainer, took me about 10 minutes.

I ended up with a very small refund, about $150 total. Yay me.

Wulin Warriors

I was flipping through channels tonight and came across a show called Wulin Warriors.

It's like a Japanese version of Thunderbirds. It is Bunraku, Japanese puppet theater, but with special effects and camera angles for television.

It made absolutely no sense whatsoever, but it looks very very strange.

Mach 3 vs Fusion

Although the Fusion razor wasn't supposed to be available for a couple more days, they had them at Costco, so I picked one up. $18 for the Power version handle and 4 blades, which is rather expensive for a disposable razor.

I've been using a Mach 3 Power for a while now, so I tried shaving one half of my face with the Mach 3 and the other with the Fusion.

The results were rather disappointing. The Mach 3 actually felt smoother while using it, while the Fusion felt like it was catching on my beard. The Fusion also had a harder time around my lips, the underside of my nose and especially along the sides of my chin.

The end result? Both sides of my face felt equally smooth and both sides grew back equally.

So stick to the Mach 3, the Fusion isn't worth the extra cost.
