Check it out. 
Fossils.  Real fossils.  The link is for 'sub $50' purchases.  Shipping is about $10 - $20. 
I just bought my son a 2.5" Spinosaurus Tooth for $55 (including shipping). 

They also have cool things like "Ammonite earrings" and all sorts of crazy cool fossils. 

This birthday my son gets a Mosasaur tooth and a Spinosaur Tooth.
What more could a "Dinosaur Crazy" 8 year old want?

And still it gets worse:

I had overlooked that that troublesome cannon has less than 200 rounds at load-out - ridiculous, you'd go through those in no time flat. Then what do you do in a close in fight?

Oh, and it has also been revealed it can't currently fly in rain and is a ludicrous amount over-budget.

Piece of garbage but I am going up to take a look end of April, my doc might even clear me for flying by then :)

Cheers

Heh,

I typically only use disposables when I travel and that is usually because I get yanked somewhere at five minutes notice and forget to pack the razor :)

I really don't like them much, but I dislike two day growth more...

Cheers

Gillette Sensor 3 is the one I have now, I picked a few packs up at cheap rates.  I can recall using Fusion too, similar.
I find the Gillettes about the only disposables that agree with me.  The Bics are just nasty and anything non-branded the same.

Another nice thing I found with these Sensors is if you tap them too hard the blade carrier just comes off but you can snap it back on similar to the disposable head system.

Yeah, I picked up some of the Nivea Gel the other day, it's not bad but it's not great either - unusual for that brand,

When you next need blades though try Fusion, really good shave in my opinion :)

Cheers

Must have been a thread @ the other place, sure Chris mentioned shaving gel as opposed to cream.

I picked some Nivea stuff up at Woolworths as it was going cheap.  TBH it seems exactly the same as cream when you're at the end of the aerosol and the foaming agent has run out but there's still propellant and soap remaining.

That said, I shaved tonight though with a fresh start on a triple-Gillette razor and did one side gel, second side foam.  It's hard to tell the diff but it feels like the gel has the slight edge on smooth areas but the foam did better on my neck where it generally gets a bit rougher.  Though I generally do a better job on the RH side of my neck, for whatever reason I usually do a good job of missing stuff and cutting myself on the other side (usually just do right-handed for all the razor work).

Probaly the worst shaving stuff I ever used was this tube of Palmolive cream stuff, it was next to useless to shave with but was excellent as an after shave treatment as in it releived any cuts and put out a nice odour.

Yes, in the UK badger is definitely top of the line and done very ethically.

I'm not aware if badgers exist in Australia so you are probably looking at an import.

Cute creatures, had one in our garden for years when I was growing up, they just sort of bumble around and sleep a lot :)

Cheers

Seems badger hair is top of the line, then boar hair.  Pretty sure mine had camel hair.
One thing majorly different is the way the bristles stick out on those ones - you can tell by the thickness difference that they seem to be clamped in well and good at the handle end.  The one I had, there was only a slight outward taper of the bristles, hence the way it just fell apart after a year of exposure to hot water.
