unfortunately, squeamish

bla bla bla, without knowledge of the unheralded and corrosive, bla bla bla

In other news, something new isn't new unless it is prevented from being older than something older than it is.

Personal grooming events I wish I never had to do but that were done automatically without my even being aware of it:
cutting toenails
shaving facial hair

Then if the thing that is older than the thing that is new that was prevented from being older than the older thing, is it only older than the new thing because it wasn't prevented from being newer than the new thing.......hang on, let me start again.....

Try waxing your legs, or your armpits then lets talk about personal grooming you'd rather not do.

and by done automatically are you saying that someone drugged you with chloraform, ate all of your microwavables, and then did this to you while you were asleep?

What I had in mind were intelligent bio-mechanical nano-bots that live perpetually on my toe-nails and on my face that consume (at the toes) any surplus toe-nail length and (at the face) any superficial facial hair. They would work full time and be impervious to soap and scrubbing and would be a healthy symbiotic partner - I feed them material like toenails or facial hair, and they help me out by keeping those things under control. How the bio-mechanical nano-bots can distinguish extra toenail length or what is facial hair and what is not, I don't know, but these will be very smartly programmed.

I like the way you think phil. bio-mechanical nano-bots....cool!

aye, but it wouldnt be long before that kind of technology would be used against you. have you read frnk miller's the dark knight strikes back?

I find shaving thoroughly annoying. If you find some nano-shaving-bots at amazon.com or wherever, please drop me the link. Thankfully, my toenails don't grow all that fast, so trimming them isn't quite as irritating. Although you have reminded me that I need to clip my fingernails.
