    A friend of mine straightened me out just after I turned 40. I was bitzhing and moaning about the haircut I'd just got. He gave me the fish eye and said "who the fekk do you think is looking?"

    Point taken...

    NO LONGER VANE!
    Primping and being vane about your appearance is a young man's thang.

    i've had a beard and moustache nearly my entire life, skipped a few years in elementary school, but other than that. ....

    fashion comes and go, but facial fur is a constant in my life...

    Ha! I'm still SLIM!

    NO hair at all.

    I'm wearing a BLUE shirt.

    I don't let my moustache connect to my Dobie Gillis tuft of beard on my chin.

    SO THERE!

    I've been fortunate.

    Good genes, I guess.

    But actually, a lot of it is my diet (imo). I don't eat like normal people.

    I was fortunate to meet some progressive people back in the 70's that ate what now is referred to as a "high nutrition" diet. It made sense to me, so I copied them.

    Lot's of veggies/fruit, very little (if any) meat, whole grains and lot's of spring water. Also, very little fat's like cheese, ice cream (love it, but only a few times a year) and butter... milk products. (I did eat yogurt but not much these daze.)

    I should have eaten more seafood, and I do like it, but it's pretty expensive.

    And, I've always lifted weight's and hiked, biked (never jogged) and spent time outdoor's with lot's of fresh air.

    (Most most of the time I've lived in the country, but always within 50 miles of a major metro area: Phila; NYC; Minneapolis; Orlando/Tampa, so that I could find work.)

    In 40 years, I can count the number of times that I've been to the doctor on one hand. I didn't have good , or any insurance, so I had to be really sick to cough up the cash. (And, I do have some minor medical issues, now.)

    Some it was/is luck; but much of it was kinda planned...

    I'm 66 and we'll see how far it get's me down the road.

    I had a bad habit of using "cool beans", "right on", and "neat-o" as a waiter. Started out trying to not be that "PERFECT!" guy like you mentioned, but just became my own breed of obnoxious.

    I guess that's OK, but sometimes it feels to me like there's no thought involved, and mindlessly fitting in is what makes people "happy". It's dangerous because it ain't just the beards and t- shirts.

    I am 55 and my wife always bugs me about growing and wearing a goatee. These are the reasons I don't. :D :p

    I tell her I don't want to look like the rest of the men I see out there with goatees and stained T-shirts with beer bellies. Everyone and their grandmother are sporting goatees and van dykes etc.

    I hunt and fish and shoot archery. They all have goatees and stained T-shirts and beer bellies. Some wear pajama pants into Walmart. :p

    I still play sports and I am still skinny. :) I like to be clean shaven, though I don't shave every single day. I need a new electric razor, then I will. I keep my hair short now as once I got out of the service, I couldn't stand it long anymore. I don't like beer and don't drink, so no beer belly like my pa had.

    I am my own man and don't care about trends. I like to do what I like to do whether it is the in thing or not. Sometimes I get lucky and I am fashionable. :)

    You said a mouthful right there.
    And it's equally dangerous on either side

    it's all tribes. remember punk? I remember when I went to Florida in the 1980s and all the kids were trying to figure out how to wear all-black outfits and doc Martens in the subtropical sun. (Eventually they solved this by chopping off their sleeves and pant legs and getting tats on the exposed skin -- but that's another story.) here in Montana we get the middle-age dudes with the sunglasses on a string around their neck and a shirt with a bunch of pockets and flaps, looks like they just got off the river -- another tribe. the cowboys running off for a gallon of milk in their diesel dually pickups, etc. it's all a matter of signifying what group you belong to.

    Phyllis Diller once joked that if she had one more face lift, she would soon have the cutest little goatee.
    She was so smart, funny, and yes, quite lovely!

    The facial hair can hide a double chin, especially sporting a goatee. Short hair is better at hiding the fact that you could be loosing your hair. Not all choices are based on fashion alone.

    I'm a good weight thanks to hard physical work. I don't shave because i'm lazy outside of work and figure I've earnt the right to rock a greying beard if I want. It's fun to change things up, shave the beard back an have a walrus moustache for a while, clean shave once in a while etc. I cut my own hair and have been clipping the back and sides for the past year but haven't touched the top due to it being hard to cut right not knowing what you are doing. I've just been styling it back up there and gluing it down with hair spray.:lol:
    My fringe comes down to my upper lip if pulled down. It's a job I will have to tackle at some point but I've been putting it off with many other jobs like painting the house etc.

    Also black t shirts help hide that gut :)
