I love having a beard!

Sure, it's not the best looking beard. I wish it was a little more full on the chin and up the sides but riding home today cold, sleet/snow, and serious wind, the ice that quickly formed shielded my face from the biting cold.

How do people survive without them?

She's got a better beard then I grow.
But that's not quite what I was referring to.

I've had some sort of facial hair for the past decade... maybe longer. I've lost count, really. For quite a while I had a Van **** before deciding to grow out my full beard. Over the past 5 years I've done anything from a short, thin trimmed jawline beard for the summer to what my coworkers referred to as "The Crazy Ivan"; a long full beard and full curl handlebar moustache. (extra intimidation points for The Crazy Ivan, and a clean shaven head. Apparently gigantic bald guys with 1920's carnival strongman moustaches are frightening to most people.)

You enjoy it! My dad has always been a beard man. But I can't stand having all that much facial hair. I think the wife prefers me clean-shaven, too.

if you lived in civilization, then you would have realized that beards were 'sexy again' 5-6 years ago.

at this point, they're close to being passť.

Beards also allow you to taste lunch again later in the day.

I've had a beard since my early 20's. Not going back to clean shaven, ever.
