Technobsolescence

By 2038, the world no longer used razor blades.

At least, not for the removal of bodily hair.

This was not because humanity had – finally – relinquished its socially constructed obsession with beauty standards and polished appearance. Alas, the cosmetics industry and the business of all associated paraphernalia was still going strong. Rather, in the preceding two decades had been developed a wondrous new substitute for shaving.

Hair removal gel.

The great societal switch did not occur overnight. However, gradually, shaving kits became seen as comparatively cumbersome, unwieldy, even barbaric things. Why bother with something that can actually draw blood when the first step – rubbing cream or foam onto your face, legs or pits – is all that is now required?

The application of the substance was simplicity itself. Essentially boiling down to a chemical reaction, once applied the process took between 15 and 20 minutes. This admittedly-arduous time was required to, in effect, uproot the follicles from the skin beneath. Thus, while shaving would still be a lot quicker, the results from the new method were considerably longer lasting.

Say goodbye to cuts, razor burn and the like.

Say hello to FolliCullâ„¢

Solidarity, brothers & sisters…
