Ok. This one has been on my mind for a while.

What's with the beards you guys ? I just dont get it. No, I'm not talking about the goatee or a 3 day shadow kind of a beard. I'm talking about those...Jihadi lookalike beards...that appear to be...attractive to some. It appears that there is some kinda cultural/gender type of thing...where apparently..(because I cant think of any other reason)...one is considered...manly I guess, for having a long beard.

Now here is what my impressions are:

1. It's disgusting. I've seen more than a few times...where long facial hair on a man...gets in a way of a normal food consumption. I've seen beards dipped into soup, gravy (not intentionally), then...sometimes I notice food leftovers embedded in that facial bush.

2. If you're a smoker...no doubt your mustache and upper part of the beard will change color from the tobacco smoke...to a filthy yellow brown. Also pretty disgusting.

So...that's me. Now you guys...how do you feel about long beards...and by long...I mean anything that stretches more than an inch from your head.

Also...would like to hear what women think about it.

Men look younger without the beard. Tbh.. i think beards shouldn't be long for the reasons you stated.

According to some, a beard can act like cat's whiskers, giving the person extra senses. I read a paper on it recently. Will have to see if i can find it.

Seeing how I have a "Jihadi lookalike beards" or Duck Dynasty seeing how people claim I look like that idiot I have experienced your beard hatred many times over the years. Most of you people that complain don't really hate beards at all you envy them because you cannot grow one.

Spoken like a man who can't grow a beard....

I love mine.

That has never really happened to me, I do get a bit of beer foam in it every now and then but it wipes away easy enough. If you can open your mouth and put food in it then you are sorted. This is not a issue.



2. If you're a smoker...no doubt your mustache and upper part of the beard will change color from the tobacco smoke...to a filthy yellow brown. Also pretty disgusting


To me smoking is disgusting, I dont smoke, not a issue.

And as smoking becomes less and less prevalent then so too dose this whole issue.

Sounds like someone can't grow a full beard to me.

If one is hygienic they'll keep their beard as clean as the rest of their body. If you've got food stuck in your beard you're just a gross person.

Not like I ever had the urge to grow one, but after reading your post I can say with certainty, I will never have a beard.

I have a long beard . I will bet you money that it is cleaner and better cared for than most peoples head hair .

I never have food in it . NEVER . I am very careful when eating and careful in what I eat . I also inspect it after eating and run a comb through it just in case I may not see any crumbs . My wife always does an inspection also and never once had to tell me that I have food in my beard . And believe me , she would .

Not a smoker so not a problem .

I dont do number three . I dont want it in my beard .

But , as I tell my wife's friends who I over hear teasingly questioning her about my beard ... " It is my face , not hers . And I am not cutting it off for anyone" . But other than a few people who joke with me I get mostly compliments on my beard from women . Clean , well groomed , shiny , no split ends .

As for goatees , those are cute little beards but most beards come in man sizes .

Let me set this up.
My family and I went to eat at a local restaurant.
Over near the entrance sat a table of 4 or 5 well dressed guys, all had beards at least 4 inches long.
My niece had to go to the ladies room.
It was crowded and she had trouble seeing where it was,
so I told her "it's over there by where the Civil War deserters are sitting".
She didn't understand, (she's only 9) but I thought it was funny as hell.
But maybe I'm not that funny, but I don't care. Nana nana boo boo

I have my own theory about this. You have too look back to when it started to become "hip" to run around with these Talibeards. That was when western soldiers were send to muslim countries and needed to grow their beards, because otherwise they weren´t be taken serious by the people there.

Then they cam back home, maybe for vacations, but just didn´t shave off their beards anymore, because they needed them where they had to fight for the banksters, the military industrial complex and all that scum, after visiting home and being send back to be cannonfodder for the worlds "elites", for example to Afghanistan.

The most funny thing is, all those that hate muslims run around with beards that are inspired by.... MUSLIMS!

A nice trimmed mustache is called a "Flavor Saver" for a reason...

Now I'll slink back and continue My exercises (licking both eyebrows for 3 sets of 25 reps...)


Stay Hydrated...

P.S. Most beards look like "Fido's Fanny" and especially if there are blotches of 'open space'.

to be honest...neither have I...but I always wondered about the motives of those who do.

It's less hygienic than clean shaven, for sure. I'm sure there was something growing in mine last time.

It was one of those ZZ Top ones; it itched like a bitch so I shaved it off and my face was covered in zits.

I don't mind seeing them on other men, but yeah, I think I'd run away screaming if I were a sheila.
