No, I don't buy the CAT theory. My cat never licks me. We are both males, he is not gay.

If I lived in Australia would my hair curl in the other direction?

Yes, as soon as you cross the equator your hair uncurls and then immediately curls the other way.

This is true, except my hair is straight. Like me.

I suspect that its just lighter in color and therefore less obvious - beards solve the problem, but are just as much work to maintain.

No, the color hasn't changed, the growth rate has changed. After 24 hours my beard used to feel like sandpaper, now after 24 hours I can hardly feel it.

Maybe I took a wrong turn at the Y in the road

Sounds to me like a wrong turn somewhere.  How is your estrogen level? Have you purchased a training bra?

I don't think my motorhome needs a bra.

If you keep going you may not need a motorhome, probably intimidate you and and be too hard to handle.>>>Dan ;)

I hear ya. I hate shaving and I hate growing a beard. So I end up shaving every day because if I do grow a beard shaving it off is a royal pain.

To make matters worse I hate shaving with a blade and I hate shaving with an electric.

But hey it beats having to put up with childbirth. I don't know how women do it. They are amazing.

Nah, doesn't work, takes off some of the hair and leaves blotches where the hair doesn't come off. Waste of money. Just let the hair grow and enjoy it.

But might be fun to get Tom to try.  If that won't work, laser treatment might.  Maybe estrogen therapy?  I like my beard, don't ind shaving what I trim, so it is a foreign argument to me.

You know when you see real old people that there noses and ears seem to be so big?  Well they are, I read that the cartilage in those never stop growing so we do get bigger noses and earlobes.

Nothing to do with beards, just some useless info.

And yes I'm noticed my hair on my head is not growing as fast either.  It used to be so thick you couldn't dry it rolled on rollers overnight, it would still be damp in the morning.  They still thin it but its nowhere like that, getting old is the pits for some areas of the body!

Maybe if Tom calls them "whiskers" instead of beard, his problem will be solved.  ;D

Good idea, I use WD-40 for everything else. It is the best lubricant in the entire world. Nothing can beat it.
