Oh you handsome razor.
With an impressive black finish and light, aluminum construction, the Standard Razor is definitely something you want to think about purchasing to kick your old, overpriced, rusting disposable razors to the curb.
Let me first say this – I was skeptical when first using this razor because of the light weight. And I’ll admit, I’ve only been doing wet shaves with a double edge razor for 2 months now, so I wouldn’t say I’m a pro at it by any stretch, so you could say this review is from a beginner, or someone just getting into double edge razors.
Cut: As I mentioned before, the weight. I’m used to a steel-bodied razor, so this took a few minutes to get used to. It was hard at first to resist the temptation to put a lot of pressure on the razor to my face, but after getting used to the feel of the Standard Razor, it felt pretty familiar. The combo of the Standard Razor and Astra blade (which is included in the purchase) resulted in a clean shave. Hint: Get a blade sampler pack online to see what blade/razor combo best suits your face.
Cleaning: Unscrew the threaded handle and what’s left is the blade and holder assembly. Wash and wipe and you’re good to go. Even with the matte black finish, the shaving soap residue did not show up after a clean up. Re-assemble and you’re good to go for the next day.
Construction: Well, I think my opening statement said it all. I love the design. Great curvature on the cutting surface=good cutting angle. Fit and finish is spot on. The wonders of aluminum!
Value: This thing pretty pays for itself in the first year. Blades can be purchased for as little as $0.11/blade. A 100 pack of blades go for $10-12 and if you replace a blade every week, you wouldn’t need to buy a new package for 2 years!

We are so stoked that sports fashion retailer JD Sports is bringing back the iconic Stan Smith from adidas in time for the summer! Originally created in the 1970s for tennis superstar Stan Smith, the trainer has become one of the most stylish sneakers of all time as well as one of my personal favorites.
The Stan Smith is the epitome of sleek simplicity, with smooth full grain leather, perforated 3-Stripes and rubber outsole. I love this low top both for it’s quality and clean look. I can’t wait to get a hold of my pair and I am so excited for the shoes return, I am hooking up a loyal reader with a free pair in their preferred size.

I love smoking but I want a healthier alternative, thanks to Ciglites I have that option. Ciglites is one of the most reputable electronic cigarette brands in the market. I decided to give it a try after hearing all the positive reviews from my friends and family. The first thing I noticed was the amazing vapor I pulled from this electronic cigarette; followed secondly by the sweet and bold tasting nicotine. Ciglites comes in the traditional flavors such as Crown Tobacco and Classic Tobacco but my favorites are their delicious and unique varieties including Vanilla, Cherry, Menthol, and Cappuccino. My mouth is watering just thinking about taking that sweet drag! I am also pleased that the Ciglites battery lasts and lasts, which is huge when you are on the go as much as I am.
Luckily for me, electronic cigarettes have less harsh chemicals than traditional cigarettes do. I find them safer for not only myself but my friends and family who don’t always want to be around me when I am smoking. I no longer reek of cigarette smoke and I don’t have to worry about my bad smokers breath. I read that a typical cigarette has 4,000+ chemicals, while Ciglites have less than 10 making it a much better choice. Not only do I prefer the sweet taste and drag of a Ciglites e cig but I get the benefit of saving loads of money. I average a $100+ a month in savings by using Ciglites to a traditional cigarette.
Ciglites was founded in February, 2013 selling e cigs throughout the world including the UK, US, France, Italy, and Germany. I first started with the Ciglites starter kit which includes an ecig, charger and three refills for around $17. If you want to enjoy all the mouth watering flavors like me, I recommend you get the Ciglites refill flavors for around $15.
I highly recommend http://www.ciglites.com and looking back I wish I would have switched sooner!
Take A Break From The Grind To Remember That There Is A Big, Beautiful World Out There Waiting To Be Explored!
What drug did you sell?
Heroin. Well, it started off years earlier with ecstasy then I moved to cocaine then prescription pills and finally to heroin. I was chasing the biggest profits. When I was selling ecstasy it was because that was my favorite drug and I wanted a little bit of extra money to compliment my regular job. By the time I was selling dope and prescription pills, I had a whole organization and this was my full time job.
What quality/type of heroin did you end up selling?
The highest quality black tar heroin. The connect was so low level that we had to warn people when switching over from another dealer. I know everybody says that but we had a lot of close calls. It was dark almost black but a drier charcoal like that would crumble and turned into dark brown tar when handled or breathed on.
What is the profit margin on heroin?
On pills, a 30mg oxycodone instant release sells for about $15 where I live and I gave my pharmacist $5/each. Dilaudid 8mg sold for a similar $15 or sometimes 10 for $120 and I gave my pharmacist $4 each for those. High quality dope sells for anywhere from $120-150/g (or $30-40 for .2) in my location and my first connect was for $80/g – though as I moved up and got introduced to higher level people, that price dropped to $40/g (and remember my market was $30-40 for a .2) and my prices stayed similar. Dope and pills are where the money is. Margins aren’t bad on coke and such ($25/g wholesale and $50/g retail) but dope fiends have to come back every day. They don’t feel like they have a choice in the matter.
How does the process work? do you buy drugs from some larger organization then move them to your "market" or did you manufacture as well? How does one make the connections and go about buying large sums of heroin etc?
A combination of good luck and just networking. It’s not easy for a white guy in this particular field. The Mexicans control the heroin trade where I live and they don’t trust white guys. My first connect for dope was one that sought out because I couldn’t get enough pills to keep up with demand. It was a white guy who had gained the trust of a Mexican woman and was basically middle-manning it for me. He got arrested and they realized that I was the one moving most of his product. They approached me and I got my first Mexican connect. After my first arrest, they realized I could hold my mud (not tell dirt on everyone) and my connect’s boss approached me and that’s how I got down to near Mexican level prices ($35-40/gram) because normally even the white guys who can buy from Mexican suppliers don’t pay the same as Mexicans. So, yeah, luck, balls, and willingness to protect your own I guess.
