5 Blades

Stop the presses. Gillete has upped the ante and revealed a -get this- five blade razor called Fusion. This, of course, is one more blade than competitor Schick's Quattro, which was one more blade than Gillette's Mach3.
I think this is getting a little silly. Does continuously adding one more blade really help that much? Personally, I don't care as I use an electric razor.
The crazy thing about this is that satirist The Onion predicted this a year and a half ago. [note: crude, graphic language was used]

Amazing link. Definitely coarse language. Definitely hilarious.

This is great news! The 3 bladed razor is totally better than the two. And the five will undoubtedly be better than 3. The law of diminishing returns will catch up with them sooner or later...but who are we to stand in the way of true progress.

The Onion is one of the most accurate pieces of journalism in the world.
