Well... I'm naturally bald (male pattern, not the clean Capt. Picard look)

6) No more cowlicks. I must have ate through 587654 tubs of product in my life trying to force that thing down. (Damn alfalfa looking motherfraker defied gravity. I hate when hair defies basic principles of physics.)

7) The ladies like to rub your head.

8) On the negative side, sometimes dudes do as well. (I hope that's not just me.)

9) You don't have to make inane small talk with hair dressers.

10) You can use the money you don't spend on haircuts to pay for hummus.

11) Much like five, people tell you "you look so mean". (Normally this happens when I do my usual on-again, off-again goatee thing and it's on.)

12) Chicks dig it

13) Best Star Trek Captain = Picard. Picard = bald. You do the math.

14) You get to sleep in a toque. (Well, I do. In the winter. Soooo warm.)

15) It make you look super handsome.

16) It tickles a bit when it rains on your head.

17) But mostly it's the hummus.

Cheers!

18) You don't get gum stuck in your hair.

19) You won't look like one of those poncy guys who use gel or mousse.

20) You get to laugh at more at Mr Clean jokes.

21) You'll never get mistaken for a girl from the back.

22) You never have a bad hair day.

23) You'll never go grey.

24) No one ever says that supremely brilliant observation people make that drives me nuts because they always seem surprised: "You got your haircut!"

25) The ability to swim like a dolphin.

troub and I sometimes go out in the ocean on weekends and rescue swimmers from sharks. Because we're awesome swimmers (thanks to our streamlined noggins, natch) and look totally bad ass sharks fear us.

Saying you won't go grey is not a judgement but rather a statement of fact. Viz, hair colour is rendered moot when one is part of the Sinead Brigade. Like saying the advantage to cutting off your feet would be never having to clip your toenails again; that is a fact, not a slam against people with toenails.

The Anti-Baldy Post.

Or, why I hate baldies:

1) The chicks dig bald; bald guys are always stealin' attention from the ladies.

2) Bald men are clearly smarter. It's frustrating to be constantly outwitted by baldies.

3) Bald guys look so bad ass they scare children............and me.

4) Bald guys are hurting the economy. The hair cutting industry alone is being savaged by the growing trend of "baldies"

5) Bald guys have more money, vis a vis their ability to save money on haircuts

6) Baldies are so cool, they make non-baldies look uncool by comparison

7) Bald guys are inherently funnier (see Creezy, Jeezy)

Rally with me fellow folically endowed friends. We must put an end to the growing threat of baldies!

See I was thinking about shaving my head recently, well maybe just really really short hair, because I absolutely abhor haircuts, they cost too much money and this one time the lady gave me the flu. But I've always been told I have a larger than normal head. Plus, upon further inspection, I have many dents and flat spots all over my head. I just don't want to shave my head and look like some alien who was in a bunch of car accidents. Plus I saw this guy the other day with a shaved head and he really creeped me out. He looked like a mix between a cancer patient and Gollum from LOTR.

Anywho, maybe I'll shave my head if I lose a bet.

lol I have a large head and a few wierd flat spots. I really hate the way my current haircut* looks from the side. but the front is awesome. I just try not to get my picture taken from the side lol.

also a tip: when (if) you shave it, try a beard of some sort for contrast and balance and the ladies (and... men?) will be all over you like jeezy on hummus.

My noggin is pretty big too. I have shaved it before, and it was so-so. I grew hair back for 2 reasons:

a: I got tired of my t-shirt sticking to my head as I was putting it on/ I got tired of little bits of fuzz and schmutz getting stuck to my head if it wasn't totally smooth

and the big, huge reason:

B: I can't stand not having sideburns. Must have sideburns. Sideburns are life-affirming joyous things.

Do any of you baldies have sideburns? I've seen a few guys with bald heads and sideburns and it was sorta weird looking.

Well...yes and no.

I've had 'burns since about 1987, long before 90210 came along and totally copied my look.

There was a certain amount of alcohol involved the first time I shaved my head, sort of like how when I snack there is a certain amount of hummus involved, or when I post there's a certain amount of sarcasm involved. VizI was in complete comfac of my mandulties that night.

Anyway, the guy who shaved my head left the sideburns. It looked beyond ret**ded. So I shaved them off the next day after sixteen years. Tears were shed. Eulogies were read. Black arm bands were donned. It was a pretty emotional day for everyone.

Now I shave my head once a week. As the week goes on and I shave my face, I leave the sideburns alone to do their thing.

So I kind of start off looking like Kojak and after a week I look more like Mike Swick. It's an on again, off again thing.

The profile angle is kind of not my best side either, case in point:

Attachment 8204

I was still using clippers back then. I'm a blade man now.

I don't think anyone had the "perfect" head for baldness. But shaving your head isn't about vanity. Heavens no. Shaving your head is about being incredibly virile, studly, and charismatic.

Bald vegans of the world, unite and take over!

Anyway, I'm sure a simple yes or no would have sufficed.


Cheers!
