Bob your face with hydrochloric acid. It helps promote hair growth.

I think you're nuts to want to grow a beard in Sacramento in this heat.

A truer statement never spoken, my friend. God, shaving is a pain.

I'll let you borrow my extra Y chromosome and you can grow a manly lumberjack beard in about 1 week.

I grew a full beard about end of my 2-year college graduation (so I must have been like 20 or so). It looked like friggin' Dom Delouise. I had to shave IMMEDIATELY before being mistaken for his illegitimate son. LOL

I shave my face roughly once every week and it still sucks.

Although, it is nice to have that "stubble" that some women swoon over.

I shave my head every day. While the facial stubble may be rugged and manly, and stubbly head is just gross.

Yes, I don't envy you women for that. It must be even worse than the face (and in my case, now, the head too).

That's why when I was tri-racing I used to get waxed. It's only a pain twice a season, but my, what a glorious pain! (See my pic in the "show us your tan" thread for full comprehension of teh painz)

I think all the Foo women over 40 should donate their random chin whiskers.






























Hey, don't look so shocked, fellas. You didn't think you're the only ones with hair growing in places where it shouldn't once you hit a certain age, did you?
