A painful lesson

I just changed the blade on my razor. It got me to thinking about a time, now years ago, when I learned that if you see something like a hair stuck in a double or triple blade, you free it by banging it against the sink/tub. If that doesn't work, you forget about it. Do not try to solve the problem with your fingertip.

Somehow evolution didn't program me with this knowledge.

Sounds like a painful lesson. Hot running water and an old toothbrush might work well too but let's not split hairs about the solution :)

Actually yeah, that could work. Especially if it's an old toothbrush you're not using for its primary purpose anymore.
