I have a deformity from birth. I have a single cell on the side of my left index finger between the knuckles that insists it's a finger nail. Every few months I have to tweezer it out as it starts to feel like a splinter and gets snagged on material. We are a complex machine so it takes a few thousand generations to sort everything out. Our electrical systems are particularly trouble-prone :-)

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.


So then...a business idea...

We can call it..."Mulesing For Men"... :shock:

Our slogan could be..."Dag Free For Life"...

Sales points could be...
"Why wax every month when with just one visit to Mulesing for Men, you will be hair & Flystrike free for life..."

"Save thousands on toilet paper...& stainless wire brushes..."

Join the one wipe club...millions of sheep cant be wrong...!!! :clap:

Id better leave it there... :roll:

This is definitely one of the more unusual subjects I’ve seen on this forum. Hair ? I’m of scot and Irish descent , and look like a extra out of the “brave heart “ movie if I let my beard grow and don’t have a haircut. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, sweating in summer isn’t fun, I spend money on haircuts ( I don’t mind when some foxy young hairdresser does the cut though ;) ), and unclogging the shower drain of hair clogging is tiresome . :lol: My damn akubra won’t even fit on my big hairy melon head at times! Be careful what you wish for my less hairy brethren

If I let my hair get to long it looks like that Redfoo clown. Big boofy hair everywhere, but I keep it well under control just as I did in the military. Old habits die hard I guess.
Am wondering why it starts growing on your back and guts as you get older though. Turning into an ape.

Any of you hairy faced types use anything on the face fuzz?

I've had a bushy Chopper style mustache for most of my life, just washed it with soap and it's always been a wirey, unruly bastard of a thing.

A mate of mine is a bit of a hipster type facial hair trainer, no sh!t, he has the fully styled beard waxed mustache, the works. I asked him how he keeps all that wirey growth so well controlled.

I'm not interested in the borderline female routine he goes through with it so he suggested some beard oil.

Got some today. Holy hell, what an improvement.

Now I'm one of those dinosaurs that think men's cosmetic products are only a couple of steps short of bum-banditry, so this is a total eye opener.

It's a little wierd and oily while it's soaking in but then the hair softens up and you can comb that hairy bastard any which way you like and it stays there.

You can make your own beard oil way cheaper than buying it.

Having a big beard is way more work than shaving, let me tell you.

DEX -3 auto transmission oil is good for your beards as well fellas. I got plenty of that on me putting a high stall gearbox converter in the old Holden as well. Seems to be good for the skin too . Dunno about the smell but, now if they could just make it smell like lavender ... :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's simple Mate,

1) Rub me the wrong way and I can be a "real prick"
2) Doesn't matter which way or how hard I get knocked,, the pointy end will always get ya.

And,,,,,,,,,,, did ya know that when you look at one of these little fellas through a jewelers eye glass they have 3 facets,
and each one is a 3D demonic type face looking right back at ya.

It's different from the average tatt, and has special significance for me, and earned my tattooist mate rave reviews from England and USA when it was first
put out there for the world to see.
