Re: Would you use a dead manís electric shaver?

Need more background. House clearance? Pilferage? Was it the shaver that killed him? Moral issue or just hygiene considerations?

Re: Would you use a dead manís electric shaver?

two important pieces of missing information:

1. did the shaver kill him?
2. was it an anal hair shaver?

Re: Would you use a dead manís electric shaver?

Donīt use a shaver and using a dead manīs razor would be a bit necrophilic, having said that I use a CPAP at night for sleep apnoe and I bought a second hand unit of the brother of a guy whoīs clogs popped while wearing it one night. The mask was a bit slimy so I didnīt use that but the rest of the machine was alright, so a new mask and pipe and filter and I was ready to rock and roll.


Having said that, I have the feeling that I have the only haunted CPAP in medical history.

Re: Would you use a dead manís electric shaver?

The question for me is if I would use anyoneís razor. Unless it was completely cleaned and felt hygienic, Iíd say no. One shouldnít use other peopleís cosmetics, razors, etc.

Re: Would you use a dead manís electric shaver?

The dead have no possessions, therefore it can't be a dead man's shaver. Sorry if that makes your poll suddenly all silly.

If it is an almost new 300,- machine it really is worth it to just buy new blades.

If the dead man is called Occam, I think it's Ok to use his razor.

That is, unless you are a newbie, in which case all is forgiven if you advertise an overpriced piece of IKEA furniture with half the bits missing once you have enough posts.

Re: Would you use a dead manís electric shaver?

I passed up the temptation to hold onto my late father's dentures on the off-chance they become a good fit for me later in life -- but I do use the electric shaver I bought for him a few months before he died. Why not? What else should we do with it?

Re: Would you use a dead manís electric shaver?

Eons ago in the last century one could do a test shave with a demo shaver before deciding on buying it!
