Hair

Post by Gaznazdiak » 02 Feb 2019, 3:10 pm

Veiwers are advised that the following contains content whose irrelevance they may find offensive.

Been polishing a particularly nice batch today and you have to make sure everything is going ok, this requires diligent taste testing.

While testing hell out of this batch I rubbed my head and realized it was past time for a shave, my brain cell got to thinking about hair and wondering why so many blokes seem to have the ideal of a full head of hair psychologically entangled with manhood, as though anything less and they were somehow diminished.

I've got a full head of very thick hair that I've been shaving for decades and I've seen guys with the most amazing things on their head.
My first memory of the US was a catastrophically bad plug job on the taxi driver that tòok us from LAX to Hollywood. It looked like a dolls head.
Last time I was in town I saw a guy with obvious male pattern baldness that he was trying to cover with the worst toupee I've ever seen, it looked like he'd slapped a badly fitted merkin on there, with baldy bits visible under and through it.

Do we have any other head shavers? :unknown:

Do we have anyone willing to explain the need to hide their scalp? :unknown:

I think this calls for more testing :drinks:

Funny you should mention this...

First shaved my head about 17 years back..
I figured that if I was going bald, I may as well embrace it...

I was explaining to a niece the other day, that I firmly believe that every person should shave their head at least once in their lives.
There is a mind-set that you have to break through about how you look, and until you've shaved your head, you cant see how fixated you get about your hair, and how frivolous that fixation is.

[Niece was FIRMLY reluctant about the idea]

Once you've shaved your noggin, it's no biggy to repeat.
But that first time is like you'll DIE for people to see you nekkid on top...

I try to explain it as the breeze on a freshly shaved scalp being akin to the feeling of skinny dipping.

I would love to see what's going on under the Donald's mighty combover/around/across.

Mention of the big D's bouffant coiffure reminds me of an ancient Maltese my Mum used to have.
Poor old guy had a small stroke and became a little incontinent and his normally white hair got badly piss stained from errant drainage.
It was exactly the same colour as the Don's :lol:

I don't recall the last time I had an actual shave but probably around 2003-ish. I just use a beard trimmer to cut it back every month or so, but there's no rule. When it annoys me too much I'll trim it. I've had a moustache since I was about twenty I think, but again, that gets removed when it annoys me as well.

As for up top, I'm probably in the male-pattern baldness region now. I generally wear a hat or cap, but not for appearance. I tend to bang my bonce on anything and everything, so without a cover I'm always bleeding, even back when I had hair. A cap just gives me the minimal protection I need. I also don't wear sunglasses, so the brim of a cap or hat is how I shade my eyes, just like the old days. As my hair has receded I've also noticed how much sting the sun can have on the pink solar panel :-)

I doubt I would ever consider shaving my nut for the same reason I don't bother shaving my face, too much effort, and I can't see it anyway :-)

:lol: yep every couple of months a number one over the head cause I'm too bloody tight to pay a barber or hair dresser and a clipper over the face every fortnight or so is plenty.
Although there's a sh@tload of white in tue beard now so it might become once a week.

It's the feeling though, Blade, just like that free feeling when you're skinny dipping and the boys are floating about doing their own, unconfined thing :lol:
The only time it was a drama was during Opera Aust 1999 season of Tosca in Sydney.
I had to wear a wig, so the lack of hair was handy, but the wig fitter had a disturbing(and short lived) propensity for rubbing my scone with his hand and telling me how good it felt.
I explained that the fore part of my head would not feel so good to him if he did the rubbing thing again.
Very quiet in the wig room from then on, but there was no more rubbing.

I've never worn underwear so my boys are always doing their own thing :-)
I spent most of my adult life wearing boots and Stubbies shorts, and nothing else :-)

You'd have done the hairy egg peep a few times then.

I was on the vertical railway in Katoomba with a mate, hot and humid weather, had the big baggy legged type shorts on and 3 girls a couple of rows below us kept turning and looking our way and my mate and I were getting the idea they were checking us out.
Until I noticed a certain subtle difference in the boy's parking arrangements, one of them was getting a sly bit of sunbaking done.

I suppose I could get a haircut this year. Come to think of it, I did have one last year so maybe there's no need to rush into it.

One guy sent me out to do a pergola and every time I got up on top the woman would come out and have a seat. Later on he'd told me that he'd told her what to expect, and she didn't seem to want miss out!

Living in the far north ya soon learn jocks =ball rash ...I haven't worn them since I was old enough to choose. Before that I remember dads cure all for the rash was to wash the affected area un vinegar. .. :cry:
When I was taking the tours up north I got a couple of comments on things playing peekaboo when on top of the bus unloading swags etc. :lol: :drinks:

It amazes me that all your bodies preconceived timings are pretty much predetermined by DNA....What “trigger” told that hair to go grey? What trigger told that hair fokicle to let go? Won’t be long before those triggers are reversible or able to be told something else...

Reminds of a joke.

Kid says what’s up old timer, never done anything wild in your life.
Old guy says, yep - farket a parrot once and was just wondering if you might be my kid...

Gees...
You boys have no shame...!!!

The way i read it, this started as a thread for guys to express their need to cover up their baldness...

And its morphed into some guys clambering over ladders & busses with their nail bag & hammer dangling in the open vision of poor onlookers... :wtf:
:lol: :lol: :lol:


Well i was a rock star in my younger days ( :lol: ) & had long hair...always down my back, on my shoulders & in my eyes...

I still have the hair on my back shoulders & in my eyes, but now it comes from those parts of the body & not my head...
For example the hair in my eyes is from my eye brows now... :lol:

Id love the long hsir back again...the girls & women loved it... :D
But im a little unsure that the 'Bill Bailey' look will do my keeping a firesrms licence any justice... :lol:

And the grey...WTF happened there...??
Ive always been a stubble wearer--always seen shaving as a waste of time & not a fan of a beard so ive always hacked it off with clippers...
What is fashionable now, with the few dsys growth look, i was doing 25 yrs ago & getting told i need to conform to others opinions & have a shave...yea rite...!!!...me...? :lol:
Ive been through a good few sets of clippers over the nearly 3 decades of being told im a scruff...:thumbsup:

Little did they know i was really a trend setter...!!! :lol:

I was sharing a house with a female while i did some work on mine, & one dsy i noticed a bit of white in the dustpan from sweeping up the hair...
I thought it must have been from the sheila using talc powder... :unknown:

Six months later & my face is white... :wtf: ...it wasnt talc powder after all... :lol:

I wear a hat always as i work outdoors.
Some people apparently know me better & insist i wear a cap to cover up the skin scon, but the reality is the hat has become like pants & keys...if i havnt got it on i feel naked...

Good onya Stix.

OK, let's push it even further.

We are the most "evolved" primate but things have reversed for us in the hair dept.
Our primate cousins like Chimp and Bonobo are covered in hair except for their face and their bum.
We have lost almost all our body hair except for.....our face and our bum. (Yes, on the head too but apes have that so it doesn't count)

Yet we have hair around the blurter, guaranteed to catch crap. Chimps are bare all around.

I've heard scientists trying to relate their religious beliefs with centuries of scientific evidence by calling evolution "Intelligent Design".
Not too bright a spot to put hair if your designing a critter that poops

One of my neices worked in body grooming before she started in aged nursing and was totally grossed out by the number of blokes wanting a "back, crack and sack" wax.
She said that as bad as they were, it was the sweaty fat women that creeped her the most.

Damn, went and creeped myself out now.
