I only shave my beard every couple weeks so I hit it with short clippers before I shave.

As someone who falls in-between the groups, I don't know if I find anti-millennial or anti-boomer posts worse. Almost like any attempt to generalize an entire generation of people is going to be more wrong than right. Unless you're saying, "Those damn millennials and their constant need to breathe oxygen."

This was prob asked a million times, but any reccs for a bag that could double as diaper bag? It has to have pockets i guess, and not weigh a ton. Anyone? Thanks.
over the years various people have recommended Brady or Chapman fishing bags as diaper bags, including Putthison. this sort of thing, though this isn't my favorite color
option:
canvas fishing bag


and Putthison also has recommended Carhartt or Klein tool bags, like

Generations are relatively useless sociological concepts (their possible meaningful usage is very narrow) and ABSOLUTELY misleading pop-sociological ones. Boomers aren't anything except an age group.

Good to know that Teger is still as rosy and cheerful as ever.

I believe what that quotations is supposed to convey is the fact that fashion had to change anyway because it was unsustainable so you shouldn't go all apeshit about the coronavirus making your industry change.

it lacks basic empathy for the hundreds of thousands of people losing their jobs and livelihood because of the virus, instead casting their suffering as growing pains typical of any industry. I do hope all the small shops that laid off their employees can take comfort in the knowledge that they were part of needed change.

The solution is to equally hate everybody.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
