A nice place for stupid questions...

  1. I'm watching Oz (never seen it before, and wow ) anyhoo got me thinking...do they allow inmates to shave in prison...you usually don't see inmates on tv or documentaries with long beards, but a razor's obviously a dangerous weapon?

    Hey, warned you it was stupid

    I would like to know what was the thing about Engelbert Humperdinck? I'm sure I spelled that wrong. But, driving past the Strip today and noticing his usual marquee, I wondered, what was it about him anyway? Did he have a hit song? Was he a hottie back in the day? What?

    Electric razors, maybe? When I worked in psych we had razors with a lock in the hadle which required a key to insert or remove a blade.

    well I did a clinical rotation on a forensic psychiatry unit in school
    and they let the patients use disposable razors for shaving purposes...
    until one of the patients came out bleeding all over the place from trying to shave his head with a stupid cheapo disposable razor....
    nice that he was Hep everything positive too

    good questions
    I have a question....
    who do you think is taller?
    gary coleman of different strokes fame
    or webster? *emmanuel lewis*
    I was watching a tv show with the webster dude on it and it got me pondering......

    I'm thinking gary coleman might be a lil taller..

    work in the OR. The last case we did today just happen to be to remove three razor blades from an inmates stomach. Yes he swallowed three safty razors. Did gastroscopy, thought we were at the rodeo, roped them, drug them right out of there. Don't know if I want to share what we took out of another orifus or shall I say organ: ::chuckle The guy is fine, was headed back to prison when I was leaving..
