Men will almost always have fuller and thicker eyelashes than women, much to the latter's "disgust". From my observations, even little boys tend to have "better" eyelashes than little girls. Must be a genetic thing.

I thought you were a guy !  Guess not  :P

I hope it's not a guy... I'd feel really awkward for thinking that a guy had pretty eyes  ;D

'Specially since you just said it out loud!  :D

Hahahahaha!!!!!

That is true, not too mention that men generally have better hair and legs too. So unfair! It's all in the testosterone apparently. Wish they would invent some testosterone hair treatment so us women can achieve the same effect. But then again maybe they shouldn't cause there could be some unwelcome side effects.

Is it testosterone or male pattern baldness, a genetic condition all its own?  I know men in their seventies who still have full heads of hair, and I know men in their twenties who are almost completely bald.  Testosterone itself cannot be the cause of this.

Excess testosterone is converted to DHT. Some men have hair follicles that are particularly sensitive to DHT. The DHT clogs up the follicles until the hair is chocked off and can no longer grow.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

I finish my contract here in Japan in another year and five months and my girlfriend and I have talked about getting married and moving to Hawaii.  I've never been but she's been 5 times and says it's really nice.  We both love warm weather and the fact that there are so many Japanese folks living in Hawaii and plus the fact that it's geographically in between the U.S. and Japan makes it appealing to us- as my girlfriend is Japanese.  When we first started to talk about moving to Hawaii I checked to see if there were indeed Orthodox churches there and was quite pleased to find there are! 

Sorry for the barely related tangent!  Now back on topic and here's some pictures!...

The eyebrow/eyelash thing on men is because they sweat a lot more, supposedly. I'm jealous of them too.

I look like a tiny, pasty byzantine with straightened hair.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

I am a heartless skeleton bearing a cross listening for the One who Cries out CHRIST IS RISEN!
Courteous is my name,
and I have always aimed to live up to it.
Grace is also my name,
but when things go wrong
its Courteous whom I blame;
but its Grace who sees me through it.

Here is me earlier this year:


You have black hair?
That's nice.
You look more aryan (persian with black hair,brown eyes, and beige skin) than most nazis do. (haha dumb nazis aren't even aryans. the true aryans are the persians like Darius the great Black hair, brown eyes, beige skin. hahahahahaha the nazis don't even look aryan hahaha. knowing this the master race theory goes up in flames.)
I love my black hair if only it were wavy like my Dad's.
yeah I used to want to look German light hair and stuff.
Now I just want to be from the south of Europe like Greece,Italy, Spain.
Imperivm Romanvm resuscitabitur.
By the way I like your hair, but it'd be perfect if it were wavy. (please Lord let me hair be wavy as my Dad.)
