Writer's Distractions - Mythbusters on Superman Shaving


Yup, you read that right. It all stems from a campaign that Gilette has going in advance of the new Man of Steel  movie in which Superman is seen with a beard early on, but it's gone later; how exactly did he shave it, presuming that his hair is as tough as the rest of him? They asked the experts, including Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage of the Mythbusters, and this is their theory.

Science FTW!  You can see the other theories at Gilette's YouTube page, with theories from such luminaries as Bill Nye the Science Guy, Kevin Smith and Mayim Bialik.
