The Depilady Is Real

Earlier in August I put up a post entitled Definition: Epilation and Depilation where I suggested that the origin of the word "epilation" came from the product Epilady, and the origin of the word "depilation" came from the failed predecessor product Depilady. Ha ha ha. I'm so funny.

Even funnier - there was no failed predecessor to the Epilady called the Depilady. I just made that up. Yeah, I know. I'm a regular laugh riot.

But my friend Karl called me on it, and it turns out he's right. There actually is a product out there called the Depilady, it bears no relation to the Epilady, and it seems to be doing quite fine, at least in Europe. Now I had a little trouble figuring out what exactly this thing is, so I will leave that as an exercise to the reader. Here are the relevant quotes from the page:

Packaging: transparent blister applied on resistant paper with Europe hole, in exhibitor from bench to tear 12 pcs

Material of merchandising: showing totem

In sale:great organized.

Europe hole?!? There's one phrase that's not found on Wikipedia. If you figure out exactly what this thing is and how to use it, please write me. Read more about the Depilady here.

Looks like my electric sander (except for humans and without electricity). You stick the sandpaper on the holder, do your damage, then toss the paper when the grit is gone.
