I am sorry that Tude had to find out that you are a degenerate beard sniffer and cannot spell jsharr.

I voted no. All of Tom's great and terrible power is held back by the beard.

He started shaving it once. That was the day tens of thousands were killed in the eruption of Mount Visuvius and the consequent destruction of Pompeii.

He thought, some years later, that maybe it was ok to trim it. We like to call that day "The Great Chicago Fire."

So, no, Tom should not, ever, shave his beard. The destruction of the world and possibly the universe lies beyond that...

No. I suck. I really do and I feel bad about it. Right after I promised balls, I got a new job offer and resigned, but I will get some out, I promise.

I voted for Tom to keep his beard. After all, if he shaved it he might get mistaken for being a sock puppet and have to ban himself forever.

Bf could not survive if that happened.

if you lose your beard, I'll donate mine.
longest it grows is about 1/2 in so you don't have to worry about overgrowth, just like grass you don't have to cut.

Actually, I'm moving some new furniture into my apartment. Picking up some really nice stuff from my parent’s back in Ohio. One couch, a new kitchen table, 100 year antique dresser drawer and some other crap. After I get it all moved in, I'm going straight to Monroeville News to pick up more hobby material.

Pix or pro beard doesn't exist! With that said, Tom's face is beard and his words are wise. Timber_8 rocks and is loved by Foo. Jsharr can't grow a beard, because of 'Giant Bass in the Sky!'

Sorry folks, I watch old Mel Gibson movies for fun.
