    Just buy one of them machines to run over your head, they are dirt cheap on amazon.

    Saves time, money and human contact.

    Ew, it'd take more than a tutorial armageddon to make me resort to that.

    I've given myself two haircuts since, and will shortly do another - trimmer w/guard and blended up the sides/back, scissors on top - it probably helps that my general hairstyle is "formally unkempt", but I've had multiple people that would tell me if it looked like I did it myself tell me they would be none the wiser if I said I had visited a professional.

    I'm never going back to going somewhere and paying someone to do it.

    I opted for the "**** it, buzz it off" approach some years ago.

    It's far better than someone asking what I do for a living and then them going silent for the rest of the cut because it's just not that interesting.

    It's made that aspect of this pandemic rather a non issue.

    If only more people opted for a number two all over.

    Apparently it'll be their own fault for going for a test in the first place.

    On the plus side, I think a two hour drive qualifies as a successful eye test. So, there's that.

    So rules to come in just after a race meeting expecting 3500 racegoers.

    Bit of deja vu on a smaller scale.

    Brilliant! "For more info just have a look again". That pretty much sums up....well, everything.

    I've just got the missus to do me a full Viking haircut. It should keep looters away in the event this just gets worse.

    This prison sentence... solitary confinement or a shared cell?

    Did anyone else get confused for a split-second when the government announced there'd be a new rule that no more than 6 people can meet, because they stopped following in July and assumed that was still the rule anyway?

    "Tough new restrictions coming in: now you can only do exactly what you've already been doing."

    Each individual message has been very clear, provided you used the correct version of Babelfish and picked the right message out of the vast sea of the fu**ers.:p

    To be fair, I and probably most people just stopped Googling the latest law once they let more than 2 people in a house. After that...

    Probably for the best, by the time you've read up they'll likely have u-turned on it or changed it anyway
