As Flannery O’Connor once said in a short story, a good razor is hard to find. If you hate hand razors with a passion and enjoy the simplicity of dry, electric shavers, you might have noticed the market is flooded with hundreds of shavers, all purporting to be the BEST, the most POWERFUL, the most COMFORTABLE.

Of course, they can’t all be, so we went hunting for the actual best. The ones that will not actively ruin your life every time you try to smarten up a little. Here are the six electric razors people swear by.

5. Panasonic Arc 4

An upscale model that means serious business. Look at this thing! Looks like something that would terrorize Neo in The Matrix. The Arc 4 promises “nanoblades” that can deliver up to 14,000 cuts per minute. Utterly terrifying language, but an impressive feat for a razor. [Amazon, $139.99]

1. Gillette Fusion ProGlide Men’s Razor Styler 3-In-1

There’s a reason Gillette have been top of the men’s grooming foodchain for decades on end: their stuff works, and it works well.

In the eyes of the feds, marijuana is most definitely still illegal, even as an increasing number of states have legalized the Schedule 1 drug. When California voters legalized medical pot way back in 1996, it seemed so culturally disruptive that few in the mainstream would expect America would looking straight at a pro-weed wave 22 years later.

What’s a devil-worshipping teenager supposed to do when it gets cold outside? For many of us with creepy proclivities October 1 simply marks the slow, delicious slide toward Halloween.

A new video from Banksy shows his “Girl With Balloon” picture frame outfitted with a secret paper shredder didn’t work exactly as planned. When the artist pressed the button to move the picture through the shredder, moments after it sold for just over £1 million ($1.4 million) at a London auction, the painting unexpectedly stopped moving halfway through.

As goes California, so might the rest of the country — which is why the Department of Justice is getting involved.

No sooner had California Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 822 into law on Sunday, giving the state the most powerful internet consumer protections — broadly known as net neutrality — in the country, than the federal government filed a lawsuit to stop the law from going into effect on January 1, 2019. The fight for net neutrality in California continues.

From a digital Wild West to landscape of walled gardens, the internet has diverged far from its original incarnation of decentralized freedom in the last twenty years. One area where the the change has been clearest is with online news. Outlets that once eschewed websites now see them as their entire future. For many outlets that rely on original reporting — which is not cheap — paywalls have gone up to ensure that original journalism is still funded. Meanwhile, Google and Facebook are where many get their news, for free, as local news outlets continue to suffer.
