    Why iz dat???

    New thread- for anyone curious about something that can't find the reason/answer for....serious or otherwise.

    One of mine-

    Two of my close buddies sport facial hair(beards). Nothing unusual,not my preference,but,to each,his own. Now,on occasion ,I have tactfully asked each pal "why the hell do you have that?"
    I never get a sensible/believable response;often a mean scowl,a suggestion that I should have sex with myself,etc.,etc. Of course,at that point in our polite discussion,I'll rename one of them 'Abe' or
    "Caleb" and ask them to loose the horse and buggy and join us in this century. That doesn't help,either.
    All joking aside,I would like to know what the motivation is- Too lazy to shave? Diggin' that Harvard prof look? What? These two guys are a bit too sensitive to my questions,so maybe someone knows
    what the benefits of beards are.......

    Susan likes mine.

    Otherwise, I'd be clean shaven.

    Used to love going to the barber for a real shave. I really miss it, but a relationship is full of compromise.

    I'm happy.

    Chicks dig them. I shave when I have to for an occasion or about once a month.

    I had one for years, I liked the look. I still had to shave every day to keep it from where I didn't want it. Thinking about it again for the winter now, it's damn cold already... The wife hates it though...

    Decided to convert my scruffy face from 10-days in the deer woods into a beard after maybe 8 or 10 years off daily shaving. Used to grow one yearly; quit when gray started showing up. Chicks said I looked way younger shaved, but I don't care about that anymore.

    Getting lots of reaction in the office from people who had no idea of my alter ego (the one who rides a dirt bike, bow hunts, etc). Kinda cool being a bit of a rebel. Beards come and they go; no biggie.

    I'm too lazy to shave, and I hate the ingrown hairs when I do have to shave for some reason.

    beard in the winter because it keeps my face warmer, clean shaven and cool in the summer. Its like a fur coat.

    Our place in Tennessee has no running water in the outdoor shower. Try shaving in the dark with cold water and soon you will say the heck with it. I did and after coming home to hot water and lights several ladies told me the beard looked good.

    You have issues, bro. Pet department at Walmart has a bag of clear glass dohickeys that look like squashed marbles. You might find one handy as a self-focusing belly button window.
