I imagine it explains why I got carded for the first time in several years while buying booze.
I got carded yesterday, despite huge gray patches in my beard and hair (it's less obvious in the hair - in certain light the combo of still-brown with the gray gives the whole thing a blondish look), but I think it was because my checker was under-age and so had to call in the head cashier to ring up the booze, and she didn't know if it was me or the younger looking woman behind me in line who was purchasing the booze.

I got carded also a couple days ago, but I think it was also a rookie cashier making sure he was crossing t's and dotting i's while his boss was watching.

I was carded into my 40's. I remember the last ten years of that being irritating. Now cashiers and such make jokes about not needing to card me. Like so many things, I wish I had :roll: less, and ;) more while I still could.

University of Queensland study indicates that women want stubbly men in the short term, but full beards in the long term.
The researchers analyzed the responses of 8,520 women, who rated the photos in an online survey. Across the board, women preferred any type of facial hair to a clean shave. For short-term relationships, they rated stubble as more attractive than beards, which they rated higher for long-term relationships. Overall, they rated extremely masculine and extremely feminine faces as the least attractive, regardless of relationship length. Facial hair lessened the effects of feminizing or masculinizing the photos on attractiveness, suggesting that it nudges a man’s appearance toward the attractiveness “sweet spot” between feminine and masculine. For instance, a beard might balance out softer, more effeminate features, or mask the chiseled, masculine features that signal a man appropriate for taking to bed — but maybe not home to meet Mom.
The study doesn't address the question of who would want to date women with such appalling taste in the first place.

I always wanted to be able to grow a good full lumberjack/viking/dwarf beard, but sadly, I only have neckbeard genes. Sideburns and cheeks remain wispy no matter how long I let it grow.

I've never really been a fan of facial hair, but I haven't shaven my face for a week or so, and it's been growing on me.

I can't decide which is worse: the pun, or that you probably didn't intend it.

I've always preferred clean-shaven men (lucky thing, since my husband seems incapable of growing facial hair), with one exception: Rowan Atkinson, of all people. The first time I saw him in anything was the Elizabethan Black Adder series, and while his character was of course an utter sleazebag, I though he was actually fairly good looking -- enough to be actually shocked when I saw clean-shaven Mr Bean and realized this was the same guy.

Have a little faith, of course I intended it.

I mean, I formed that phrase once to myself unintentionally. Because it was accurate. But the pun was too good to pass up. So it's now been bouncing around inside my head.

The age difference in the way I look with a beard and without is probably about 15 years. And for me it actually grows well - no neckbeard, not much gray. My wife likes prefers the way it looks vs without.

When I have a bit of scruff or facial hair I look older. Like I'm in my late twenties or early thirties.

Yes, exactly like that.

When I shave clean and dress down I can pass for a college student.

The people who meet me in the gym don't realize I'm a professor until I say something. Sometimes this takes months.

My beard is about 7 colors, two of which are white and gray. Even so, people guess my age in the mid to late 20s, and I get carded a puzzling amount of the time.

My beard goes from my cheekbones to my clavicle (where it meets my chest hair) so I have to shave to keep neckbeard at bay. And I've got a big patch of gray around my chin.

It looks fucking glorious.
