How much is the Shipping + Handling on the $1 per month level? It seems to be included for 6 or 9 dollars a month.

A straight razor costs ~$20-$100 for 50 years of shaving, monthly cost: way less than a dollar.

Walking everywhere also saves you money on gas, but do you really want to do that?

I don't think a straight razor is a fair comparison to their product.

so true!

SO, here's what to do - start the straight razor club and compete.

They'll corner the market disposable razor market ($2 billion) and you can have the non-disposable market ($30 million). src: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sunday-star-times/features/2329747/Wh...

You can also get bi-weekly contact lenses, or dailies for a little bit more. With disposable razors, you're paying for convenience, not a better shave.

For real ?
