With hair like that, you post as many times as you want. :-*

If you wanted to go that route you could pretty much do it yourself. Wrap it, cut most of it off, and then shave the rest.

I didn't realize I could do it all myself. I'll look into that.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll probably just get a hair trimmer or whatever and buzz it as short as it can go without shaving it. I don't know how short that'll be though, but probably won't make for an authentic bambams look. :'(

Most of the time that's all I do too. Using a razor gets a cleaner look, but similar to your face it only lasts a day or so. I don't have the ambition to retouch it every day. I just buzz it and maybe shave it and then let it grow until it gets annoying or starts to look bad. For example, greatest thing about shaving your head is that you cannot have a bad hair day. You can wake up and just immediately go out. Once it's shaved there's zero maintenance. Your eyes may be crusty, your nose may be congested, but the top of your head will be presentable! It takes a few weeks or a month or so before it starts to be a bother again. I usually hold off until I shave it again.

A downside though is that your head is less protected from the Sun. If you also consume great amounts of alcohol or other substances that dehydrate you it can certainly have an effect.

I don't know what that face is supposed to mean, but it's creeping me out! :o Also, now you have double posted!

How long is it after that point? I honestly don't know how fast hair grows; mine's been too long to really notice.

Everybody's hair is different. I think mine grows very slowly because I don't cut it often and I shave it instead of cut it. I can probably go about 3 months and only grow about half an inch.

Most hair grows around 1/2 an inch a month. Check wikipedia if you don't believe me. ;)

Piccolo day is also my brother's birthday. And I also chopped off all my hair and my beard. I didn't have much, but I was gettin pretty shaggy. Your turn, Eric. ;) xD

You're not going to grow it out and sport a sick philosopher's beard? :(

My beard is funky - I have a bald spot in the middle of my moustache, and my chops are like peach fuzz - I can't grow lamb chops like Elvis. My moustache kept tickling my nose and it drove me crazy so I just gave it all the ax.

More like an old wizard who lives alone atop a tall tower who bestows upon young adventurers the ability to materialize turkey sandwiches in exchange for news of the rest of the world.

I fail to grow hair to connect my mustache with my beard. :( I always assumed it was called a "goatee", but I guess it's a "French cut", and I'm partly French apparently, so you'd think I could do it, but there are always obvious gaps even at 31! I just let it all grow until it becomes uncomfortable tickling me and then I shave it right to my face until I get carded buying beer again. Alas, in the last week I've been carded even with a beard. Bet you feel stupid now, eh. But I won't hate on you doing your job. It's poison, and if you can keep one person from becoming addicted to this sweet poison its worth it.

But I also fail to grow hair straight down the middle on my chin and neck. I'm a neckbeard 90% of the time except for that gap. I couldn't care less. Even if I did grow thick hair I wouldn't maintain it. Fuck it.

But the point is, I can relate to any struggles in trying to fill their face. You're not alone, and there's nothing wrong with it. I've never once been berated or questioned about it.

My car is sick with a fever.

Alas, I finally have paid off my 2008[1] Ford Ranger which my parents lent me money for to buy 3 or 4 years ago. I told Miranda now that I own it it's going to start breaking down. Doesn't the fucking heat suddenly quit on her while she's driving to work on a chilly Spring day. FUCK. Fortunately, we have a separate car, which has sounded better, but it's a Toyota so fingers crossed, and I have been getting away with working from home for a few months, so we have nothing to whinge (sp?) about.

I hate facial hair.

My facial hair grows too fast. In a week I'd have a light beard. I sometimes have to shave twice if I have something important later in the evening, like a date.

I take my appearance and hygiene incredibly seriously. Brush my teeth 2-3 times a day, shower 1-2 times a day, shave 1-2 times a day, good clothes, tasteful usage of makeup, regular exercise, decent diet ... I probably spend an 30-45 minutes a day on this stuff excluding exercise.

I do the opposite. I shave, and then let it grow out for a week or two. I like how I look with and without a beard.

So, as I was driving today, got a call from the shop saying they won't be able to tell me much of anything until tomorrow afternoon (or that's the soonest I will get my car back. Damn Bluetooth on the loaner they gave me was REALLY QUIET on phone call by default).

Also, DAMN FIREFOX! Why you get so slow all of a sudden?

When social justice took priority over progress. ;) It's the feature bloat of society.

Tasty sandwich, thanks! Apparently Nintendo is bringing back its NES emulation box soon.

Whatever the case, it gets laggy enough that you can compare it to some old version of IE in terms of speed.

I think it started a few years ago when they forced the CEO to resign. From there they took over the entire organization, and the software has gone to shit as a result. They completely alienated their userbase and just don't care. And their products are worse than ever.
