They also apparently forgot 'Aircraft Mechanicly' on that chart thingy....

the people building your airplanes...are a mostly fantastically bearded group.  Then again maybe its just WA stateness.....
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

Glorious.

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Going to make beard oil soon.  Found some argan and jojoba oils at a beauty supply store nearby.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

If your leg causes you to creak, cut it off.  It is better to practice hesychasm with one leg than with two legs, one noisy, to abandon silence and the prayer.

I don't have a beard, but if I did, I would want it to look like this.



The World's Longest Beard Is One Of The Smithsonian's Strangest Artifacts

Quote
When Hans Langseth died in North Dakota in 1927, he left his surviving children with a final wish: after his open-casket funeral, he wanted to have his beard cut off and stored for posterity. His son acquiesced, lopping off his father's beard before the casket was buried. The beard sat tucked away, boxed in an attic, for decades, before Langseth's son Russell donated the beard to the Smithsonian—which turns out to be a perfectly reasonable place for the beard to be kept, because according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Hans Langseth's beard is the longest beard in the world, a staggering 17 feet 6 inches long.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I've been using this product when I need a touch-up on my beard during the day (when I don't have oil handy).  It's a blend of olive oil and beeswax.  You can also use it on your hands or lips if you want.  Works pretty good and has a unique scent.  It's also been good to touch up my moustache to give it a nice curl and sheen.

Ran out of this for touching up, but now, since I have it in my work bag anyway, I am using this:



During winter, I tend to get noticeably dry skin on my hands and this helps.  I started putting some in my beard since the ingredients list is comparable to other beard balms out there, including almond oil, beeswax, lavender/rosemary essential oils (among other oils).  Works really well to fix any stray hairs and bring back a healthy shine.  Then I fix myself up with a McClaren Woodshop Beard Comb made from a recycled skateboard.  It's nice and the wide-set teeth doesn't snag any tangles.



Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I fully endorse it.  And, yes, I really did buy such a thing.  Now that I'm well-groomed, I'm off to the co-op with my fourth-hand stolen fixie.

Compare and contrast the Bank of England Court of Directors 1903 and 1983:


Even the clean-shaven men have good suits of clothes

^A man who no doubt follows the traditions of his father, and his father's father. I bet he doesn't even carry a weapon, he just bare-knuckle-boxes his way through perp scum.

His backup weapon is an old leather slap jack.  Just kidding, he never needs backup.
