Hmm...I think you should try for the look in the second photo. :biggrin:
I don't like the curly stuff.

I like this one - http://www.worldbeardchampionships.com/gunnar.html [Broken].

I've always wanted a beard that I could tuck into my belt - like Gimli. :biggrin:

I was looking for job on an offshore oil rig, and I had to shave and cut my hair, because an oil soaked beard and hair were considered unsafe. That was May, 1981. I shaved for about 1 or 2 weeks, then I ended up getting a construction job onshore, so I stopped shaving. My kids have never seen me without a beard. Before that I had a beard from August '77 through mid May '81.

I might be excluded from some jobs or industrial sites in which respirators or gas (face) masks are required.

I shaved it off in ~'92, having had a beard since the late '70s. My wife had never seen me without a beard. I shaved, she screamed.. BUT IT BACK ON! Needless to say I have not shaved since. :rofl:

Hey Astronuc, have you ever considered membership in the Flowing Hair Club For Scientists?

http://www.improbable.com/category/lfhcfs-hair-club/
Hmmmm. I'm not much for clubs.

My hair is a little shorter than Integral's, but then I trimmed it a couple of months ago to get rid of split ends. :rolleyes:

Nice photo, Integral! Looking very distinguished.

You'll have to consult a dictionary. Merkin = box-beard.

Astro, I just had me an idea. Given the popularity of topiary art, you could sculpt your facial foliage into the semblance of a really fine sheep. :uhh:
