nonono, your the lost 4th zztop band member!!!To answer the OP, cause I'm not going to read all the posts before. Hell NO!! I have a beard, now with grey hairs sprouting all over the place and a bald head. I compensate for my lack of ability to grow hair on top by growing it in the facial region. But I have a PhD, and work in education, so no one can tell me to shave or not!! I keep growing it longer and longer in the hope that someone will think I am a vagabond or biker when I come to teach. Then I can laugh at then and say "no I'm your professor and this is how I roll!" Deal with it!
My wife said that to me once. I told her go for it and I will shave your head in the night. She knows I would so she leaves me alone. She didn't like it at first but now she thinks its sexy.knotquiteawake said:
Does your priest moonlight as santa clause?I'm sorry to disappoint, but I'm the one with the less impressive beard. My priest is interested in brewing, but I don't know if he'll ever get around to doing it. He's pretty good at drinking it, as he demonstrated at our Oktoberfest party.
Funny you should mention that--he's talked about maybe doing that one year for a little extra money. He has the build, the reddish face, the jolliness, the whole package.Does your priest moonlight as santa clause?
Now that's an incredible beard! That's what I want to look like when all the pigment fades from my beard.
no.Is being in the military an allowable excuse for not having a beard?
That's a good thing to shoot for. He was blessed with early pigment loss; he's only about a year and a half older than I am.Now that's an incredible beard! That's what I want to look like when all the pigment fades from my beard.
I don't think any of that is going to happen. I'm far too happy as a Coast Guard helicopter flight mechanic. Much rather save people than kill 'em. Not being able to grow a beard is a bummer, but I got into traditional wet shaving a couple of years ago and rather enjoy a nice shave now! I like to grow a moustache a couple of times a year - reminds me of my late pops, whose moustache was a permanent fixture. 10 years to go until I retire, and then you won't be able to distinguish me from Grizzy Adamsno.
1) join SEALs, Army Rangers or Delta Force.
2) get posted to afghanistan
3) volunteer for being embedded with local anti-taliban forces
voila - now you HAVE to grow a beard while serving your country!
sure, it's a few extra steps, but having a beard is worth it. get on that, will ya?
Just googled them. There's some great facial hair in that group (and fashion in general). My wife was less than thrilled with the handlebars at first, but she put up with it for four months. When I chopped off five months of beard to reveal that, the first thing she said was "your mustache is wider than your face!" :rockin:
I get plenty of Santa Claus comments already when my red beard gets long, even from adults. I can imagine how it must be for your priest. Oh well, "grey hair is a crown of splendor."That's a good thing to shoot for. He was blessed with early pigment loss; he's only about a year and a half older than I am.
Just be prepared for kids to come up to you in the grocery store and tell you what they want for Christmas. It happens to him frequently.
Where the hell did you manage to find Peter Sarsgaard's lost Dwimli audition tape?Here's a pic. I can't find anything more recent. It's from October, so my beard has grown considerably since then, but you get the idea. Probably harbouring some wild yeast.
And, for some odd reason, Catholic altar boys.Lots of good beards on Orthodox priests.
*raises single eyebrow suspiciously*Went hardcore woodsman for 3 years...
The whole thread might as well be locked now, as that picture aptly represented everything that has ever been said, and ever will be to say, on matters even tangentially connected to the topic of beard.["Excuse me, miss"]
