No, but just be aware there's a $1.00/kernel fee for butter.

Re: United Airlines

Has anyone even taken notice that although United clearly deserves a flogging in this situation, the actual individuals who dragged the passenger off the plane were employees of the Chicago police department?

I find it odd that seemingly nobody is paying attention to that detail.

Re: Nair: Oh the ironing!

Kidding aside, personally I would have some qualms about putting evil chemicals near/in my ear canal. The stuff is probably okay for skin, but has it ever been tested on an eardrum? I use something like this: https://www.amazon.com/AVANTEK-Trimmer-Facial-Shaver-Battery-Operated/dp/B06WVPDGBH/ref=sr_...
