I have one of those goatee beards that seem like a good idea at the time.

My current plan for the future is to become a math's teacher when the kids get a bit older. When I was younger, beards were compulsory for programmers and math's teachers, so I guess i'll have to grow another one when the time comes. How many folks here have beards?

I had one for a while when I was in the navy, just because I could.

I have had a beard since I was 18, it started off as a full beard, and has shrunk to a goatee over the years.

I'm not quite ready for a full beard yet, so it's a regularly trimmed thin-beard. I've seen enough bad goatees to make an itv2 documentary, presumably approaching it from the other side yields better results?

I've had a full beard since I was 19. It hasn't shrunk but it the colour does appear to have faded in the sunlight Sad

I think I'm destined to have a beard. I have one of those 5-minutes-later-stubble beards like Homer Simpson.

I've got a small goatee, had it for a couple of years now.. I can't remember when exactly Smile I'm not a fully-fledged programmer, but a scripter. Does that count? Very Happy

Maybe there's a subconscious scale. Scripts:Goatee <-> C++:Full-Beard

Is there anyone here who uses assembly? Do people ask if you were in ZZ Top?

Don't go out in a high wind or those whiskers will get blown away Wink

I've grown and shaved off all manner of beards and had some stuck on when there wasn't time to grow one Rolling Eyes

Well, I have a beard but none of the options fit me. I have a BSc in Biology, a subject where beards are almost as popular as they are among Geologists, but I didn't grow mine until I was about 25; then again, up till then I wasn't exactly mad-keen on shaving either Wink

Mine never makes it beyond the itchy stage, after a few days it HAS to be shaved off before I kill someone, or set myself on fire from friction scratching.

mmm.... I'm starting to really doubt my Slacker credentials, I'm going to have to go recompile something with --without-arts just to feel better.

I've been a programmer for in excess of a quarter of a century, and never had the urge to grow a beard. But I've had a fair few colleagues who have... and some of them have been men Rolling Eyes

Oh just learn to smoke a pipe, or at least get one to chew on. Your adept pipe smoker will get by filling the bowl only once a day and it will be lit for hardly any of that time, so it's not much for others to object to. Smile
