Shaving is dumb, too, but I do enough of it (not every day) to keep looking mostly civilized.

I have observed that I get the closest shave 3 days or more after my previous shave.

Same here. I hate shaving my face. If I wait for a while I get a closer shave. Because I am usually the only one in my office I try to put it off as long as possible, until it starts to annoy me, especially in hot, humid weather.

I generally do it twice a week. In addition to the time factor, shaving every day would be harsh on my skin.

Twerpy young guys with beards and meticulously trimmed beards on straight guys always seem sort of smug and pretentious to me. I shave my entire head with an electric shaver these days and it gives me pleasure.

#LPLO hit me on page 205, so I can't see Mojo31's reply from earlier.

I shave once a week because it's easier to get sunblock on for longer weekend rides without facial fur, but 4-5 days seems to be ideal.

Still not sure why it hasn't been all evolved off, though. Mother nature should get on that.

Could be University of Southern Colorado.

Welp, we survived our first tropical storm with wind involved. The power was on about half the time but is out now. They're telling us we should expect heavy rain through the weekend. We were closer to the eye this time, and as such had stronger winds. At the eye it was steady at 65mph. We probably had 40mph with higher gusts.

Stay safe.

Disneyland?

How did I not know about this place? It almost makes me want to go to Idaho.

I have to shave every 3 to 5 days. Not due to any romantic encumbrances but so that the gas mask will seal on my face. Beards are not allowed. It's almost all white/ gray anyways. My hair is still mostly brown but my beard has been white/Grey for 10 years.

Well it's no Mickey Rooney's Potato Fantasy, but since you can't time travel, I guess it'll do.

I am still living on EDT. I hope that will minimize jet lag.

Yesterday I pondered the merits of converting to UTC.
