This epic thread may interest you - The Truth about Hair. Obviously it mainly talks about head hair but there's no reason facial hair could not be included.

At nearly 29 I only shave my face once every 9 days and my mo area once every 3 days, so I hope the powers aren't too special.

Here is the part about the facial hair from THE TRUTH ABOUT HAIR:

The mammalian body has evolved over millions of years. Survival skills of human and animal at times seem almost supernatural. Science is constantly coming up with more discoveries about the amazing abilities of man and animal to survive. Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform for the survival and well being of the body as a whole.The body has a reason for every part of itself.

Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved 'feelers' or 'antennae' that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brain stem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.

Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.

When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out .

How old are you? Once in your entire life?

This does not compute with me unless you are 14?

Actually I am 19. My personal and religious beliefs influence me toward not shaving (although I can if it is necessary).

Personally, I like a beardly man. It just looks more natural to me.

Well, a full beard looks nice.

Neck beards and whatever those "I'm a badass and show it by growing a scraggly six inch thing of hair from my chin but continue to shave my mustache, YRAAA!" things are called are just weird looking.

I totally agree with the poster that stated that female facial hair has the Super Power of repelling males. Honestly, I could have used a nice, long and silky mustache during my adolescence. I wouldn't have had to deal with nasty old men ogling me and whistling at me and random men who I'd never even seen before asking me for dates or "digits".

It's funny the regulations the Bible puts on things.


Think of it this way, what do you do with an infant or young child: don't touch the hot stove, don't cross the street without me, don't put a knife in the socket (and how many times when you were young did you say "These rules make no sense" or "When I'm an adult...") Then as the child ages the rules become "be home by 10," "fill up the tank after you use the car," "practice safe sex." Then as the child reaches adulthood you back off even more. You have less and less rules and hope that what you taught them sticks and they grow into a good person, but you are still there for the inevitable call at 3 in the morning where they say "I screwed up..." or "I need help"

Anyway, I was reading one of those free weekly info papers that restaurants have and one of the Did You Know things said that Alexander the Great couldn't grow a decent beard or thought it was good so he would shave all his "peach fuzz" with his knife and his men didn't want to be disrespectful or seem like they were "making fun of" him so they did too and the tradition was born. Go figure.

And it was kind of weird how I just got done reading a thread on facial hair and then I read an article about facial hair.

Life is strange at times.

Here's the thread for any one who's interested, definitely worth a read.

Does Facial Hair Have Special Powers


YES .... On a woman it's natural birth control. (no one wants a woman with facial hair).

On a man, it's a sign of male maturity and is attractive to women (at least according to evolutionary psychology).

always remember going to a pub in york (uk) where it was listed as a place where the average clientle had "a beard you could hide a badger in" and it was some good beer that could put beard hairs on you just by being near the pumps


and the missus does love to stroke the 'badgers' so if it keeps her happy then i'm afraid gillete is losing money on me

never had much facial hair and im 30 lol
my brother have more then me ahah
im between brown and blond (chatain) dont know the word in english
i just hate when it become to long now i shave it once a week
i have try with a mini beard when i was more younger but never a mustache

for now i prefer to be clean ..they are quite annoying
we dont have the same hair cats does in the end of their nose
they do not extend the body like the thong of a snake to feel the surrounding
imagine in our past .. our encestors were like the bigfoot .. with a lot of hair
now look most men start to loose their hair at 20 (im starting)
imagine our futur .. we will be looking like aliens soft skin with no hair


i dont believe human hair have some sort of a power on us
but we never know ..we have all different habilities ..

There is a legend of the Samson long hair
if you were to cut them .. Samson would loose it forces
there is always some truth in a legend
so we never know

how old are you again ?
some start very young . they can have a heavy beard
and others start more older and have less

just to remove them from all over the body ..
and everybody today shave themseilf more then once a week
especially the ladies

The hairs are an extension of the nerves, so it's logical.
Even Santa Claus is depicted with a long beard, how else would he know who's naughty and who's nice? (jokes).
What I'm trying to say is that all wise men have beards.
By this logic I'm not wise as I shave mine. But there you go.

This epic thread may interest you - The Truth about Hair.


and if that isn't enough, there is this: The effects of facial hair manipulation on female perceptions of attractiveness, masculinity, and dominance in male faces


Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the effects of systematic alterations in male facial hair on female perceptions. A within-subjects design employed one condition (facial hair) incorporating five levels (clean-shaven, light stubble, heavy stubble, light beard and full beard). All levels were applied to three different facial designs, constructed using FACES software. The resulting 15 male faces were rated by 60 females on various attributes. Male faces displaying a full beard were considered the most masculine, aggressive, socially mature, and older. Males with a light beard were considered the most dominant. Males with light stubble were considered to be the most attractive, light stubble was also preferred for both short- and long-term relationships. These findings are discussed in terms of age preferences and good-genes models.

The only feelings that I get from the hair growing on my upperlip
is pain when I pluck them with tweezers.

Thanks, your avi looks so peaceful.

The only superpower I get from facial hair is pain resistance from cutting myself and razor burn and emotional patience from having to cut it everyday. It also helps me be more social. I get tons of "You look like a werewolf" or "Get a cut freak" or "Is your shaver broken" when I don't shave. Any time I try to let it grow out I end up looking like Grizzly Adams or some kind of man-beast. And when I tried to grow out my mustache people said I looked like Hitler. I used to joke to friends that I had a 3, 4, and 5 o'clock shadow. It's like that Seinfeld episode where he shaved his chest and the hair came back thicker.
