Okay, so I know I'm probably a crazy sonofabitch for this, but I'm thinking that as many people are interested should join me, in No Shave November. Post pics of yourself the 1st of November, and then let your beards grow all the way through November 30th. Then take another picture of yourself with your full beard. Headshots only. The reason I am doing this so early is so I can get some people committed. I will also participate.

Let those beards grow!!

If I stopped grooming my beard for a month the police would arrest me assuming that I was the last viking, the one who got lost and has been roaming the earth raping and pillaging all these years.

This thread goes out to everyone who is not in the service. No, you can't trim it or keep it up or anything. You have to not shave it for the whole month of November, or you lose. I think we could actually get members of NFLDC to vote on the person with the best beard as well. That would be pretty sweet as well.

I did Movember last year, raised about $500 doing it.

Idea over here is to style it into something ridiculous, which is what I did, by months end it was rather disgraceful.

My only problem with going a full beard will be how itchy it will get in both the motorbike and football helmets... but I will wait and see on my decision of how to attack it this year, will probably do it again though.

I would never shave if work didn't make me. I let it grow until my boss yells and threatens me if I don't shave by the next day.

I hate shaving. Viva la beard. Im allowed to have sideburns, any type of stache or goatee.. but it can't connect to form a beard. I don't really get it.

I decided to try and make myself look evil and have this stache goatee thingy going, it worked moderately well.

You should grow a handle bar mustache, it would be amazing.

Personally I don't like shaving either, like most people probably, but after a couple weeks it drives me crazy and so I inevitably give in and shave anyways. Generally speaking I shave every three days, as it saves me money on blades if it doesn't have to cut anything too long.

Longest time I went without shaving was in 2007-2008 when the Giants went on their crazy post season run. I bought into superstitions and didn't shave until a couple months after the Super Bowl win and probably grew my beard out for 4-5 months max.

Actually I think it was right before the draft that year I said screw it and shaved the thing. Someone dared me to not shave it until the next Giants loss but that was a bit too much for me, and I'm glad I didn't. I don't think the Giants lost last season for several weeks in as I recall.

But fisch said during the playoffs. and since it's well known that the bills don't make the playoffs, I figured you were just forgetting about the sabres.

I develop heavy stubble within days of shaving. After that, my facial hair growth hits a brick wall. I could go an entire year not shaving, and all I'd have to show for it would be stubble and a trashy neckbeard.

Rosebud
10-12-2009, 01:36 AM
speaking of the neckbeard. If we were to participate could we still shave the neck beard? I'll go full viking for a month but if I can't eliminate the neckbeard that'll be a problem.

CJSchneider

Count me out. The only time I don't shave is during the summer. I could just imagine some of the kids' comments while I was growing a beard out.

-Mr. Schneider, you look like a homeless person.

-Yeah, you look like a guy I was throwing rocks at last night because he was sleeping under the stairs at our apartment building.

-Do you really stuff newspaper down your shirt to stay warm at night?

my facial hair is convinient. my goatee is only a 4 or 5 day project. but, anything on the side of my face looks patchy and sloppy...kinda like the terrorist costume in Team America.

i can also grow a pretty thick neckbeard. so, yeah. i'd only do something like this if i could groom. work requires me to at least pretend i'm making an effort ot look presentable. allthough, i have stretched the limits of 'business casual'

I already have a beard. If I don't shape it though I get hair growing up almost to my eyes and almost down to my chest, and since I like having a job I don't think I'm down for this. If only I was still in college.

vikes_28
10-13-2009, 03:15 PM
Bumping this so I can know how many people are actually in this, I will make a list on the first post for who is in. Give me a simple "I'm in" And I'll put your name on the first post. If you are in, there are some guidelines that I would like you to follow:

1. You may not "touch up" anything. You have to let it grow strait through the end of November.
2. Your last day to shave is October 31st.
3. The first day of November, post a picture of yourself clean shaven. Headshots only, we don't need full body ********.
4. On December 1st, we will all post pictures of ourselves with our hairy faces.
5. After we post pictures, I will make a new thread with all the before and after pictures, and the members of NFLDC who did not participate will vote and discuss who has the best looking "month of no shavingness."
6. If you just can't stand the itchiness anymore, then tell everyone and post a picture of yourself when you decide to shave it.

Those are the ground rules! And also (I'm probably not supposed to be encouraging this), If you choose not to do this because of work, or because you're in the service or whatever, then I highly recommend doing "movember" and growing a mustache to raise prostate cancer awareness, ya know, since 99% of us are men :D

I woulda done it, but there's this higher up at the store I work who wouldn't take "but it's no shave november" as an excuse. He actually sent me home for not shaving the day the store opened over two years ago. When I was 16 and couldn't grow any facial hair to speak of. It's improved a little, but not much.
