Knights in Hairy Armour... Message Board

    I've seen various "polls" or "state your opinion here please" posts here.
    So here's another one.

    Earlier in 2005 I shaved my beard off after (too) many years of being hirsute. Was this a good plan I've since wondered?

    So, on a scale of 1 (Yum, yum!) to 6(Eueyeuch) I'd like people* to rank the following...

    a. Long shaggy beard, (e.g. Rasputin or Grizzly Adams)
    b. Short, well cropped beard (e.g. Russell Crowe)
    c. Designer stubble (e.g. George Micheal)
    d. Moustache (e.g. Ian Botham)
    e. Clean shaven (e.g. everyone else)
    f. 'I don't care, as long as I can see my man smile'.

    -------



    * Actually, by people I don't mean blokes.

    No, no, no, Alpen...there's no catch 22, because you don't need a significant other to do the job. You are thinking about going about it all wrong...you don't shave your body hair e.g. back hair...no, you go to an ethestique clinic and they will 'wax' it for you! Much better, you don't have to deal with again for at least a month, maybe more! You'd have to shave everyday! lol

    This is actually easier said than done...

    In fact it's a bit of a Catch 22 - if you don't have "another half" in your life, you couldn't get your back shaved (it's not the sort of thing you could ask your mates at work!). And if having back-hair was an impediment to getting "another half"...
    you're snookered.

    Ah...

    One of the big advantages of being a bloke is that in five minutes with a razor, hey presto! Appearance change!

    Of course, if the "New Look" isn't much cop, you've got a 4 week wait for it to grow back...

    On a similiar note, how do blokes feel about women with any of the following:

    1. Underarm foliage
    2. Pubic foliage
    3. Leg foliage
    4. Facial foliage (god forbid)
    5. Foliage on the least expected
    areas of the body (soles of feet,
    buttocks, inner ear etc.).




    4. Facial foliage is an absolute no-no! When I was a boy my granny had what seemed like a Kaiser Wilhelm moustache, it was absolutely terrifying. (In fact come to think of it, my granny was a terrifying woman, full stop!). It made one h*ll of an impression on me.

    2. Nicest well trimmed, but these days I'm not that fussy!

    1,3,5 Nicest if there isn't any, (or it's shaved), but again these days I'm not that fussy!

    I'd say 'b', 'd' or 'e', maybe 'c'...I'd have to see it first. :-) The Grizzly Adams look...hmmmm...don't think so!
    I grew up around one too many burly bearded bushmen...uncouth, rough, not well-spoken, uneducated ... is the picture I conjure with that look.

    Alpen, it's kinda like the fake ta ta thing. You do what you feel comfortable with, whatever makes you feel fantastic!
