Well, to be fair, neither am I, its just that there are some things I do in the dimness behind my bushel that I wouldn't want plastered all over the internet. Even 10yrs ago I could just about make myself pretty enough that I'd not have minded video going up on the likes of rotten websites, but these days... forget it! Please, do forget it. If there are any would be Light Warriors reading this, google such sites (if the 1 I'm thinking of is still live: I'm not even going risk looking). You'll see plenty of stuff there that not only is the kind of thing you probably feel you ought to be fighting against, but is the direct result of people blindly following somebody else's ideology.
One thing is certain: they aren't content with a single candle behind a bushel.
Yeah, I ended up with a similar shaped beard leading up to & just after my divorce. By the standards most seem to apply, our 'amicable' split was positively loving, but it was still a traumatic time: trying to find hope & emotional stability in a new situation. Thankfully, I have friends that can & will see through my masks & poke me with the 'remember who you are' stick. This isn't easy b/c, for a westerner, I had a rough childhood & was cursed with much higher intelligence than my parents, so, if I'm scared, I cant help but twist & turn like a snake with a corkscrew up its arse. I'm guessing these people can be bothered to persist b/c, I do the same & stick around to help mop up the mess.
No, no Pharaonic beard. When I had one a while back, it looked precisely like the one in my avatar, except grayer. Sadly, I had to shave it off upon my recent re-entry into the ranks of the bald-headed and serious-minded. Life has it's trade-offs, I suppose. In exchange for the whiskers, I've received in return a better tan, and that squinty-eyed Eastwood look, which I can muster up into a thousand year stare sometimes.
Well, I'd say "teste" myself, even for the women. As in, I've never met a bunch of people more likely to be running on too much testosterone & too little seratonin in my life. Sadly, I think many would-be Light Warriors may be suffering from a scaled down version of the same affliction.
Believe it or not, I carry around my own handcuffs for just such occasions. No need to inconvenience the constabulary. You know how testy they can get.
