    I don't roll my pants, my jeans won't even roll past my calves, and I've had a bald patch on the back of my calves since... well probably about as long as I've had hair on my legs.

    I never could figure out what the hell caused this. I don't know why I never made the connection.

    Oh, yeah, probably 'cause I'm an idiot.

    I have two bald spots. One is from a third degree burn, backed into a low BBQ grill, and the other is from a poor drop in off of a brick ledge. I raked ny shin down the brick and peeled a couple of layers of meat off, no more hair growth. But I shave them anyway.

    My legs get kind of dry and itchy in the winter so I just attribute the bald patch to scratching all the hair off.

    back of my calves and top of my thighs feel like a stubbly face, i think its mostly attributed to skating but now that i think about it biking probably isnt helping either.
    oh well

    Thank god I was wondering if I was going bald in a very weird way....hehe I kinda figured it was due to rubbage on my jeans since it is at the widest part of my calf...but still thought it was weird.
