I'm not bald. I'm the opposite. I'm 51 soon and still have all my head hair, not even widows peak... but I've never had "sideburns" and you'd need the CSi team to find a chest hair on me (low testarossa levels LOL).
That makes perfect sense although I'd never heard it before. My voice dropped in about the second grade. Beginning of school year and every substitute teacher that called roll would give me the ole, "Are you in the grade you're supposed to be in" look.
Had to start shaving the summer before third grade. By 5th grade it was twice a day. My beard doesn't stop below the chin either, meets the hair on my chest. Grows at an ALARMING rate and tough when you wear a tie everyday. I've shaved with a straight razor since 11th grade. Multy blades and disposable won't even pull thru my beard, plus ingrowns are a nightmare. I bet I've burnt the motor out of at least 6 electrics.
I just assumed all my male classmates were the same. It wasn't until I started Jr high in the 7th grade that we changed clothes for PE. That's when I noticed everyone else and they noticed me. I had a full chest of hair and a 3 day beard.
In the 70's I had a hunk of thick hay bale hair and looked like I had a football helmet with no mask. About 25 I got serious widows peak and it just kept peaking. No comb over, just cropped real short. I'm 37 now and would LOVE to shave it all off, but I have a dip in my head towards the front and had a tumor removed that left a scar I'm a bit self conscious about.
I've always blamed it on playing baseball from 4 yrs old thru college.
