I know someone who has one of those Costco saunas too and can confirm they absolutely love it.

I love to sit in a sauna, especially in fall/winter. I put on some soft jams, close my eyes, and then just sweat it out for 20-30. It feels great. Pandemic killed that so I bought one of those 2 people Costco saunas. I had pretty low expectations, but figured I would give it a shot since you can return anything to Costco. Its amazing. Now I can sweat out my rage in the comfort of my own home.

Inside one or outside one?  If inside, how are you controlling for extra heat and humidity?

Inside infrared sauna thingy. Saunas are dry heat, steam rooms are steamy. I prefer the dry heat. It heats up pretty quick. I can hop in and be toasty within 20 minutes or so. I think I have this one.

Man, a sauna is one hell of a contribution to this thread. A freaking SAUNA! Wow!

Do you just preheat it like an oven? How long does that take? Does it have rocks or fake rocks that you can pour water on for steam?

No rocks. I think the rock ones are like the old school steamy ones. Mine is dry infrared so it just heats up. Takes about 20 minutes to get up to 120ish. I think it maxes out around 135 or so.

I have never considered these things in any positive or negative way and was only vaguely aware of them and folks, they are maybe healthy AF. should we all buy them?

supposedly tons of health benefits from them. I love it. Some times I can really get in a zone and after like 30 minutes I feel about as good as possible. That is the other best part about having one at home. I used to go to the gym and I would get there, turn on my sauna jams, get relaxed........then 3 cackling bad person ladies would come in and talk and laugh the whole time. My rage would build up to the point where I had to leave because it was defeating the purpose.

I'm looking to replace my electric razor. Currently have a Braun series 3 but it got dropped and the pop up trimmer snapped off. Thinking about just going back with the current series 3 shaver. Are there any (foil-type) electric razors that would be a big upgrade (in terms of shave quality, not price) that gE posters would recommend?

I wish I lived in a place where I could a
Go get a schvitz every day like some old Russian guy. I don’t think buying a small one and adding it to my house would really do it for me unless I added it to my basement or something.

Bought a new, overpriced putter for this first time in my life. Early returns are good so far. Two inches taller then my last putter.  :gocho:

4 giant bags of salad. I decided I was transitioning to a lunch salad guy. have been putting together these massive chef salads the last few days. egg, ham or salami, olives sometimes, blue cheese sometimes, like 2 minutes of cranking on the pepper mill, massive amounts of full fat salad dressing. just gigantic things to behold. probably about 1,500 calories a piece. but, folks, they are good.

i recently transitioned to buying bagged salad kits. i've always frowned upon them but man it's easy and usually pretty good.

i’ve been doing the same thing as you guys, my coworkers call me The Saladmander
the only difference is that I do potato salad instead of greens because I think it packs a better punch for my memory and critical thinking skillz.

16 ounce plastic container of reser’s potato salad every day helps me pound the dang stone!

I bought quite a bit of Bitcoin recently and it was a pretty good purchase.
