They sell those at mini-malls? I had to order a genuine aluminium one all the way from Japan.

There's a direct correlation to the amount of confederate flags you see in public and the amount of decorative sword stores in mini-malls, so maybe you live in the wrong location. Also, I shared a brief, friendly smile with a guy in a Walmart the other day in the produce section only for him to turn around, which is when I noticed the big confederate flag sewn onto the back of his jacket. It is worth noting that I live in British Columbia.

I used to live in B.C. and I can only remember, off hand, one decorative sword store. But maybe there were more and I just never noticed them all. Here, in Hawaii, we have the swap meet! And boy oh boy there's like, a dozen sword and knife vendor stalls all over the place! When I was thirteen I bought a katana because I couldn't afford the Real Metal Batarang(tm).

I know it's chaos, but gently caress if I can't stop reading that as "CASHEWS OF CHADS"

Especially with this being marketed towards "gamers," there was a solid few seconds I had to look real close to make sure.

Mobile sword stores? Like instead of some guy selling flowers at the side of the road, he's selling swords?

I've seen this for rugs and bedsheets. Would not be interested in bedsheets bought from a random person at the roadside, or rugs, for that matter.

But weapons being sold this way is a really strange image. Even if they are chintzy weapons for decorative purposes only.

I don't recall ever seeing a mall or Walmart katana, but conventions generally have at least one and sometimes multiple booths selling cheap stainless steel swords and knives in really impractical designs. I've also gotten some blank guns from there, which are more fun.

Yes, like that. Set up under a tent right next to the highway. And a few miles down the road you'd find a drive thru liquor store.

Maybe not the absolute most pointless, but I'm always super confused about why razors for men and women are like completely segregated. Gillette will never ever market the Machs or whatever to women. It's a drat blade, for getting rid of your hair. Stop it.

Every single product from them in that series says "For Men". Even the website is titled "For men". I don't understand it at all.

My husband once got a free MachSomething in the mail, completely unsolicited. He uses an electric shaver, though, so I inherited the MAN'S MACHMILLION BEARD DESTROYER 3000 to use on my dainty ladylegs. It always felt vaguely subversive. (Also smooth as a baby's rear end.)

It's counterintuitive but side of the road seafood vendors are usually amazing. I guess guys like that typically depend on repeat local customers so they take freshness very seriously. And it's the entire point of something like that, to get the freshest stuff that was just caught like that morning.

Yeah the 7 blade face turbofuckers are completely pointless, and replacement heads cost so much I'll need to mortgage my house. I should just go back to the disposables. It's bad for the environment but at least I'm not getting hoodwinked by some corporate idiots who don't know what to do to rebrand besides add more garbage to the handle.

He was the type of guy who just makes your whole day. Anyway, I was ringing him up and when he turned to leave I saw her had A HUGE (like the entire back of his head huge) tattoo of a swastika. That was a big "whelp" moment for me.

And on sword chat, the only sword store I saw growing up (still in Illinois) was a combo sword, comic, and M:TG store. My brother and I spent way too much time there.

Get a safety razor. They're cheap, low maintenance, and generate a lot less waste than disposables.
