Well,I have a goatee but switch back and forth between that, a beard and being clean shaven. I have not noticed any real difference personally.

The only thing I have noticed is that when I first shave off my beard, my face feels cold. I have not noticed any changes as far as what you are seeing.

I wonder if it is not just more that you are still getting used to having it. They make your face look different and so maybe that makes you feel a bit different.

That novelty wears off. I have honestly been shaving since age 9 ( Early puberty) and now I wish I never had to shave

Congrats on the facial hair young man! As someone who's had a full beard since Junior High, and who has a rather epic and sophisticated looking beard at the moment, with some nice grey stripes....I can say without doubt that..... Indeed Facial Hair Does Give You Magical Powers!

How is that you think Castro survived all those CIA attempts against his life? His beard is the most obvious answer my friend! In fact the CIA even had a plan to make his beard fall off (this is true...look it up!)...They knew that by removing his beard, he would be (not unlike with Sampson's hair from the Bible) powerless! Luckily for him it didn't work!

Another great example is Rasputin! Why it took shooting him, poisoning him, and finally drowning him, before he would die! (If he's truly dead and not just living on some Island of Immortals that is!)

Different facial hair will give you different powers! A full long beard as the two gentleman I mentioned will give you vitality and endless amounts of good health......a Jon Waters mustache will make you a successful film maker!....A Fu Man Chu will give you all of the powers of the Orient, including Kung Fu skills! .....And of course...a Nice Handlebar Mustache will give you unlimited sexual stamina!


Take care my friend....You are entering a new and wonderful world!

Is anyone else noticing a disappearance of hair in general? It seems to me like earlier decades were much hairier, especially in the chest/belly/back-area.

And it's not just cultural (although shaven ís indeed the new norm) but biological as well. In the men's locker room at my local student sports facility body hair is very rare, yet I don't know anyone who actually shaves their chest. I just doesn't grow anymore. In my mind, this change occurred roughly during the dawn of personal computers.

Are our bodies physically losing touch with nature because of our indoors, sedentary lifestyles? Are we evolving right before our eyes into smoothies?

All I know is I feel naked without my beard.

I have a few pieces of evidence against the notion that facial hair gives one "Super Powers":

1) Hipsters
2) Bums
3) Child Molesters

Well it depends on the type of facial hair. Usually a full beard and mustache is seen as good while a goatee or handlebar mustache is seen as evil.
This is such a fun thread.
Speaking of Samson, there are stories in the bible where someone says that a person can't be a prophet because he has no facial hair. People in that culture equated facial hair with power. I wish I could remember the verse. I think it was Elijah.
I did find this Lev. 19:27: 'You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard
I guess you can cut the hair on your chin and your mustache but you have to leave the sideburns.

And I have all the evidence in the world that facial hair does have "Super Power"

1) Chuck Norris.
2) Chuck Norris' beard
3) The fist inside Chuck Norris' beard



Joking aside, I agree, they don't have special powers.

Put a mustache on a woman...watch how fast it repels men away

I really hope not


At 30 years of age I struggle to compete with plooky teenagers in the facial hair department

Oh crap...maybe there's something to it all.

Ah you are bringing intriguing points to light.

Different types of facial hair invoke different types of traits.

Of course there is the creepy guy mustache, but I don't have that. I think mine is cool because it matches the exact consistency of my eyebrows.

Also, isn't it about our power of moderation in between caveman long stache beard and clean shaven raped facial skin to create an attractive, confident, assertive masculine look? The opposite of animals (and women)

It's funny the regulations the Bible puts on things. That's the same book some Christians point to when they are against gay marriage because homosexuality is an abomination in Leviticus. But then shaving and eating shellfish are also apparently sinful


It definitely depends on the kind of facial hair. There's the long old man WISDOM Gandalf beard, the 1970s pedophile style mustache, the Hitler postage stamp, and so much more.

I have only shaved once in my entire life; did not like it. Why shave when you could just be like how man was intended to be? But it is lucky for me I do not have much facial hair. As an earlier poster mentioned men today do not even have much hair on their bodies, even without shaving, and I wonder why that is? Thankfully that is not my problem, although I do look rather strange as my legs are extremely hairy yet my arms/chest is normal.

Anyway… do I think facial hair gives you ‘special powers’? Well no, but who am I to say. Maybe people with full grown facial hair have special abilities I cannot comprehend until I too have a complete beard/goatee/mustache.

Also, welcome back. Have not seen you in a while SolarE – Souljah.

I think I can answer the question with the evidence below...

Remember....



Because...



Would these guys be 1/2 as awesome with the facial hair??



Just a hint of the special powers facial hair provides...



Our brothers to the north have learned to harness these powers...




Case closed..

With my full 8 inch white beard i get to play Santa and don't have to use a fake beard.

My facial hair has the power of wearing out my razor blades. And that is about it.

I wander how old the op is since I could grow a beard since I was 16...
