Real men shave it. With a Bic, not namby-pamby clippers.
If they are balding, sure. And lol @ Bic. I nick my skin every time with their cheap dollar razors
Be a real real man.  Let your beard and hair grow and flow.  Think of the $$ you'll save on razors, shaving cream, haircuts, etc.  AND you will look ever so manly!!
Soo... what you're saying is that we all have to convert to Sikhism?
Only if that's your bent ;D.  (You could just think of it as being a real man and looking like Rasputin ;D)

Jeffy, as I have said numerous times.

I can't grow a beard.

All I have is peach fuzz on my stache area and under my chin.
"Jeffy"??  "JEFFY"?!?!?!?!?  Only my sister has earned the right to call me that.  So...unless you're my sister.....can it!

You can't grow a beard??  Should I laugh or cry??

OK Jiffy, please cry for me.

And yes Alejandro life is miserable for me.

I'd age at least 10 years with a 5 o'clock shadow.

Sooo... I hate to be that guy, and I'm sorry to spam you kind people, but if you're feeling really bored-

I entered a quilt I made into the Blogger's Quilt Festival, so if you have time would you mind giving me a vote? Just click the link:

http://amyscreativeside.com/2013/10/25/bloggers-quilt-festival-baby-quilts-2/

and scroll down, I'm entry #84. And click the word vote that's ABOVE my picture, not below it. And in case the numbers are too small to see or not loading properly, it'll be this picture:



Thank you so much and I promise not to spam you again. :p

I've heard that shaving often helps to grow a beard. It's probably just another urban myth, but perhaps it's worth trying.

I look like I'm 8 years old
I have baby fat on my cheeks
Can't grow a beard or even a full mustache.

If you're a real man (or even a real, rare woman) shave with a straight razor.

Cheer up, Achronos. You know what they say:
Some things in life are bad.
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble. Give a whistle.
And this'll help things turn out for the best. And...

Wasn't it already discussed around here you get a badger brush and a safety razor?

Safety razors in the long run are cheaper than Mach 37.  But a straight razor takes a boss to handle.  And, yes, badger brush is preferred.  I used boar's bristle brush when I did shave.

I think I had an ex gf once buy me a razor set that costed either 300 or 600 dollars.

It was obscene. Gillette too. I ruined Christmas that year with a look of disappointment when I opened up.

Yeah yeah ungrateful ... then finding out how much it cost later...

A really fine razor will cost as much.  Yeah, it can be obscene.  And for what?  To baby and pamper your face?

Nodoby forces you to use luxurios razors. I've been shaving my beard with Mühle's safety razor. It's price was ~30€ and pack of 120 blades was 12€ and I can manage more than a year with those. That's both more effective and cheaper than using Mach 3 and other that kind of razors.

Hahaha, the wiring is slowly baking every time you use it.

Does that mean it can explode?
Probably not.  More likely, one day it will simply short-circuit and stop working.  Or just not turn on.

A fine example of Dutch humor. If you can haul it you can have it. It's all there is on tv.

School bullying ain't got diddly on workplace bullying.
Can you describe what this workplace bullying is?

Just curious. I'm thinking its more subtle than some schoolyard stuff.

EDIT: Been googling some articles on this, wow that has definitely happened to me over the years.

Seems to happen to a lot of women.

And sure HR is pretty worthless.

Since I am quiet and shy by nature, its pretty natural to be attracted to it I guess.

My first comic stuff I made in 2002:

Ninten.com Deathmatches!!
https://web.archive.org/web/20030819032749/http://www.ninten.com/f/showthread.php?s=&threadid=21656

I was 15 when I made these LOL.

Man I miss that forum so much, probably the closest I've ever experienced a "community" on the net.

WARNING: Language?

So you can get fired at work for swearing? Wow, I had really no idea. I never worked in a place that frowned on swearing.

Frankly I pretty much say the F word after every other word, including the workplace.

Have you seen any firings or people getting reprimanded for it?

I worked in a hybrid call center/tech help desk role, and the funny thing is I never actually complained about any of the people that called in like everyone else did.

We had folks that would throw headsets across their desk out of sheer frustration of people's stupidity.

Not me though, I have too much patience with people. I also had to train a new hire, and she didn't even know how to expand a window...yes like going to your corner browser and stretching it out. And this job required a little programming, I couldn't believe it. Took 2 and a half months to train her.

But when the bosses weren't in on the weekends, we were pretty much worse than sailors. All we did was complain about management all day long. We were pretty close to having a "mutiny" cept 12 people decided to up and quit at once so it killed any motivation to do anything about it.

If I could really let it loose, people around would probably be offended.

But I am "nice" to everyone I meet, and I do like to help others out if they need it. But if I don't like you, you will know.

I ain't Will Rogers.

People gotta watch out on the phones though. Cause we had this guy say "**** you" right as he hung up, but the system that was recording him caught it. He got in a lot of trouble, didn't get fired though.

I found my old mp3-player. It works with batteries and it doesn't have internet connection. Also, no gigabites but only 493 megabites of memory.

I was fairly happy about it something like 7 years ago. Not it feels like a relic. I feel old.
