I like the way your hair holders match some of the butterflies on your shirt .

The mustache itself is a bit straggly .

I should also add that a certain Girl likes this ugly mug of mine when things are a little smoother...



Although I do let things slip from time to time...

Well, I am not The Girl, and her view would definitely be taken more seriously than mine, but I like the mustache.

Oh, congrats on being one of 'The Twenty' .

i'm a big fan of Jesus. i love in one of the movies i saw about him (think it was Zeffirelli's, but i'm not sure), the scene where he tossed the moneylenders out was done a la Walking Tall - in other words, he beat the crap out of them with a 2x4 as they ran away.



but that's not why i wear my hair long. i'm just too cheap and lazy to get a haircut.

that, and Fignon is my hero!

easy come, easy go.

besides, i like dropping ten years in ten minutes.

so, like the 'professor', you're using long hair to cover up premature balding?

Botto's mustache needs to be mounted on a white charger riding into the jaws of Death, into the mouth of Hell.

When can it's glory fade?
O the wild curves it made!
All the world wondered.
Honor the charge it made,
Honor the Lip Brigade,
Noble Handle Bar.

If you had to go through life with that face, would you be at all happy about it?

There's a great book by Stephen Prothero called American Jesus. His argument is basically that at different points in American history we have projected our ideas, values, etc. onto Jesus, recreating him in our own image(s). That's how you end up with tough guy Jesus, hippy Jesus, etc.

It's one of the most entertaining and accessible academic histories I've read. A must read for every Jesus fan and anyone interested in American cultural history.

Be sure that they adjust the reward for inflation, or you're getting screwed out of several thousand dollars.
