As of 04/26/2011 I'm going to miss seeing that little "Points to next level" ditty on my profile.
While I'm not a practicing Catholic, I've had this academic fascination with the history of the Papacy for some time now. The histories, traditions, the stories surrounding the men who've held the position, the whole nine. One part I've been curious about, yet haven't found any clear answers on, were the names that Popes take upon their election. Exactly how do they go about choosing that name? Why did Karol Wojtyla choose John Paul II? What was behind Cardinal Ratzinger's choice to be Benedict XVI?3 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
I'm 30 and I STILL have no idea how/why this debate came to be. It seems to be that conventional wisdom says to shave on the grain to lessen the chances of nicks and ingrown hairs, but I've been shaving against the grain since I started shaving 15 years ago. EVERY single time I've tried on grain vs. against grain, against has left me smoother than a newborn's bottom. Does the on grain argument stem from a time when we didn't have the snazzy razors we do now? Fill me in, gents.5 AnswersMen's Health1 decade ago
