    Old man puberty?

    As my thirtieth birthday fast approaches, I'm finding that I'm getting hair where there was none before. In this case, it's nose hair that is sprouting at an alarming rate.

    It seems that from about age 12, I've slowly been turning into a gorilla. After I could grow a beard and had a little hair on my chest, my body took a break for about 10 years, but now it's back with a vengeance. What's next? Crazy old-man eyebrows? ear hair? Hobbit feet?

    Are there any doctors on foo who can explain what's happening to me? I thought this was supposed to stop at some point. So far, I've just been trimming with some small scissors. What should I do? Tweeze? Invest in one of those electric trimmers? Stop snorting lines of Rogaine?

    When I turned thirty five hair started popping out everywhere. When I take off my shirt, bigfoot takes pictures of me.

    I rock the hobbit feet. I'm hoping for no ear hair or super nose hair.

    Nose hair is gnarly. I can amuse myself for minutes staring at my own freshly pulled nose hairs as my eyes tear in amazement.

    Welcome to middle age. Hair stops growing where you want it to and starts growing where you don't want it to. It's one of those little jokes God likes to play on us.

    Good one, God.

    OP - It could be way worse. Try dealing with the 30-something gorilla syndrome and having a spare Y chromosome. I really am Sasquatch. It's a medical miracle that I don't scrape my knuckles on the pavement when I walk.

    42 this year and still don't need glasses. That ************ thing is a myth.

    Let's see...other stuff to look forward to...

    Getting helped across the street.

    No one bothers to card you any more...even if it'd make you feel better.

    Receiving your AARP card in the mail.

    Remember those old high school injuries? You will...

    I had a prof in college that went through cancer treatment for a while. He said not even chemotherapy

    It's certainly good to know I'm not alone, and that it only gets worse.

    I wish some foo endocrinologist would check in and explain it all to us though.

    No matter what grows out of where on your body, please do us all a favor and remove said hair. Nothing worse than riding a crowded subway and some neanderthal next to you has nose hair Tarzan could use and ear hair Evil Knievel could rocket sled over. Any good Wife will never let their Man go out of the house looking like Chewbacca. Don't have a Wife? Then buy a 10x mirror and do it your self.

    My old boss who has since retired had so much ear hair it was like balls of black stuff hanging out his ears. But when you got close you could tell it was hair. Would you go out with your woman if her armpit hair was flapping in the breeze?
