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

How many folks here have beards?


I have had in the past but decided some years ago to stop being so lazy.

I've got a small goatee,


That's not a beard, it's a: 'Whoops, I missed a bit, oh I can't be bothered to shave it now'. Very Happy

After 7 days growth the other half won't let me in bed, but I must admit 10+ years shaving every day in the Army means that I feel strange when I don't have a shave.

Actually, I strongly object to people smoking in my vicinity -- unless they're smoking a pipe. For some reason, I find the smell of pipe smoke fairly pleasant.

I failed to mention that pipes are also very good for all sorts of behavioural emphasis. I recommend reading Doris Lessing's "The Sentimental Agents in the Volyen Empire" for a few examples. Smile

In my defence, the photo doesn't do it justice and it was taken a while ago. When it was short Wink

I haven't seen anyone smoke one in a long time, so maybe pipe-smoking fashion has changed, but don't you need a handlebar mustache or full beard to smoke (convincingly) one ?

Well, the pipe-smoking Tux, which is Slackware's mascot, doesn't have a beard or handle-bar moustache, so no. Smile

hmmm, except for me, that is Very Happy --- ahrrr, the good 'ol days Smile


I had a really long beard but recently trimmed it. But i grow it out of the top of my head so it usually goes unnoticed. I do tend to wish i was furry though, especially in winter. But this one is really warm, which is also really strange for over here, this time of year. Weird things are happening on the weather front i fear ...

Being a Penguin, and therefore feathered from his chin to his backside and all the way round again, surely Tux can claim to have a full-body beard?

I've never met anyone with a feather beard, so I'll reserve judgement on that one.
Anyway, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs doesn't have a beard either, so I'm still sticking to my point of view. Razz

A beard should only be worn by the man who grew it Smile
