Not all of us have silky smooth beard hair from whatever genetic stock is known for being greasy and naturally shiny. Some of us need poo poo to keep our beards in line. Just combing mine doesn't do poo poo unless I comb up and out and look like a real hobo.

Signing up for classes in the introductory to college welcome 'class' and had to talk to people. Mentioned I was in the military and was seeking to educate myself. First question asked is do I have the PTSDs. When I got out I would went on a long rant just to freak this kid out but just responded with nah man...nah...just chill'n. Afterwards someone dropped a book on the ground and I kinda flinched/spiked my head that way and this little poo poo chuckles.

I have the feeling I'm going to get very angry at people for no reason and should probably start taking my medication again.

I'm reconsidering trimming the beard before I go. I mean, I've got a solid start on what could be a majestic monster bird nest of a beard. probably been a month and change since I trimmed it last. any nice days and I'm going to be exposing nature to the ungodly amount of body hair I have on my upper torso. gotta get some sun.

basically my plan is to come off the trail looking like I escaped the state sanitarium

no, shaving is about conformity.

beards can be maintained and hygienic, but try getting a company of guys to keep their poo poo in line. hell, a squad would be hard to keep consistent.

It's a really good explanation for why you're a (relatively) old gently caress on a 4 year campus instead of doing 10 years of night classes at a community college like a normal non-trad student. I tend to out myself if I'm feeling self-conscious about my age.

For what it's worth, nobody in film school seems to gives a poo poo.

Or maybe I've gone full autist and just can't tell.

We had several dudes in my squadron where we had to buy them soap, toothpaste and deodorant. So yeah I'm willing to bet hygiene is part of it.

Edit: FWIW the story about not being able to get a seal on a gas mask is accurate. After a couple of weeks without shaving I was loving with chemicals in the garage and probably gave myself brain cancer because I couldn't get the respirator to seal up worth a drat. You'd need the hitlerstache equivalent of a goatee to make it work.

It's been getting up into the 40s most days for about a week and a half, most of the snow is gone. But there have been at least three idiots in the local area who have decided to "test" the ice on lakes and rivers by driving their cars out on them and sinking. I think the next one is going to have to drown to get the point across.

I always got the impression that shaving became a thing during little brouhaha we had a ways back with the gas masks and trenches and whatnot. It would have made sense at the time, and Major Burnside et al. for god drat sure would have disagreed that shaving was a part of military service before that time. So at first it served a purpose.

Unfortunately that purpose allowed it to be one of the few ideas to penetrate the reinforced-concrete-bunker-thick skulls of people with rank and once that happens it's like a pit bull with a ham bone; they'll never let that fucker go. Eventually someone says something like, "Sir, we haven't been to Europe for a few decades now. The war's over. We're not actually wearing those gas masks anymore." and since critical thinking or having ideas is like dividing by zero in their brains everything kinda short circuits and they start flashing the error message, "Tradition, Tradition, Tradition".

Keep your skin from drying out and wash your beard every 3-5 days with mild shampoo. If you get dry beard, buy beard oil and draw a line out on a comb. Boom, slick, cleanish beard for the day.

Wrong.

F1 is the loving worst.

Not only do they suffer from the same dumb poo poo all other motorsports suffer from, they are loving snotty bitches. At least Nascar drivers know most of their fan base is white trash blue collar. F1 drivers/sanctioning body still thinks it is for the sophisticated.

And somehow, Bernie Eccelstone manages to make Brian France not the biggest tool involved in motorsports.

This is not an endorsement of Nascar as much as its a insult of F1.

F1 has some insane engineering and honest to God amazing poo poo, but at this point they're really just good at forcing massive amounts of power and fuel efficency through very tiny motors. NASCAR probably has the most consistent drivers imaginable, because their laptimes are often within milliseconds of one another where even a slight involuntary tensing of the shoulders can cost a race. No real innovation because of how insane the rule book has become, they really need to go back to the old Smokey Yunick days where it's not cheating if the inspector doesn't catch it before the race, because that was amazing poo poo.

LeMans is more elitist than F1 without any of the engineering prowess all while they're pretty much just at the mercy of VW and it's subsidiaries for funding, ever since they forced Mazda out for using rotary engines that did much better in 24hr races they've pretty much just been the realm of petty slapfights between Audi and Mercedes
