Recently I represented and tried a case on behalf of a young woman who had been the victim of a horrific attack by her ex-boyfriend. The facts of the case revealed that over the course of an attack that lasted hours, the ex-boyfriend violently raped her, inflicting knife wounds requiring nearly 500 stitches. The attack was so brutal that the blows to her face left many of the bones in her face broken. When the paramedics arrived, they believed she was dead. 

The problem is not isolated. It is so pervasive that the CDC, (Centers for Disease Control), actually has a division of Violence Prevention, and has studied the problem extensively. The CDC monitors the problem closely and recently updated its findings in its National Intimate Partner and Sexual violence Survey.

I’m sure most if not all of you have seen the great wars between Gillette, the unit of consumer products giant Procter & Gamble and its ongoing battle with Dollar Shave Club.  Gillette claiming that the way certain materials coat Dollar Shave Club’s blades is a violation of a 2004 patent held by Gillette filed the lawsuit about a year ago.  Supposedly, these coatings keep the blade sharp.

As I got interested in this patent fight, the idea of how to keep a blade sharped peaked my interest.  I decided to see how long a person could really use one blade.  Believe it or not, I have used the same Gillette blade for six months – yes, six months! – and it is still sharp.  It’s a relatively simple process and you don’t need an engineering degree or even a technical mind to do it.
