Only from Maria "watch out I'm made of plastic, I'll melt" Shriver. Nah, strength doesn't equal sex appeal...it just means you'll attract power-hungry broads like Delilah.
: Sorry hon, but I'm sure there's MANY ways to perceive what the 'moral' of said story is. Its been a while since I read the book, but I'm leaning towards thinking that the last thing that story was about was hair.
Well duh, just as there are many ways to interpret what the moral of any story is. I was being facetious. Translated: I am not actually attempting to make a grand universal statement about, of all things, hair.
: Sorry, but if you shave my head...it doesn't take away what little manhood I do possess. I was led to believe that the head shaving of army lads was a means to bring all the new recruits down to the same level. It could also be viewed as a rebirth that negates the past 18+ years of their existence.
Whatever. It could also be viewed as removing the individuality of soldiers so that when the need arises they'll take orders & only act in what they feel is the best interests of the group.
: Uh, the guy I saw in AP had longish hair. You seem to be thinking of the 80's male, cause a grungier look seems to be 'in' these days. Guys that have every hair 'groomed and moussed' have a certain George Michael gayness about them.
Fucked if I know what's "in" for young American males. I don't even know what's "in" for females. But if your last statement can be taken to mean that you feel guy vanity is effeminate I agree. I suppose I should elaborate by saying vanity in anyone is unattractive.
: : Hair is manly!
: Take a look at my buttocks. You'll be changing your statement faster than Kelley changes lust interests.
That's more ape-ly than manly. But yeah. You've changed my mind, not to mention taken away my appetite. Thanks bunches.
: : However, while chicks may dig rubbin' the buzzcut for giggles, they don't :want to run their fingers through it...give me any other reason for the :continued existence in our culture of the thing known as Fabio.
: Overweight housewives? Check out the romance section of a bookstore sometime and take notice of the broads that peruse the area, tis quite sad indeed.
Never spent any time in the romance section myself. What were you doing there, cruising for chicks or picking up the latest Harlequin for yourself? You naughty boy, you.
: You really gotta drop this 'Kevin, don't change a thing about you, you're perfect!'-schtick.
Okay. Mr. Smith, there's only one thing that stands in the way of you being damn near perfect...and that's the lack of a buckskin kilt. I'll happily donate free seamstress services to correct this terrible flaw.
Seriously, why does it bother you so much? Is it so irritating to hear praise of someone on their own fanboard? Would you rather I insulted him? And I should hope I've made it apparent I don't agree with everything Smithy does by a long shot, that's pretty obvious. In fact I'm overly critical on some points, so I balance it by hailing his masculinity. Why this is an issue to anyone, I've no clue. It's beyond harmless.
: :There's a fine pregnant lady standing next to the hairy dude in that :picture. Coincidence? You may think so, but I know what I know.
: Yeah, it has nothing to do with the guys personality, talent,...I don't think I need to go on.
Oooh, GOOD POINT, never thought of that one. I wonder how anyone can possibly take my sarcastic hysterics seriously and actually attempt to argue them. Is it for the fun of it (my reasons for posting pointless stuff such as the previous hair manifesto) or because you are so bored with everything else on this board you actually believe they need to be argued? I mean, I'll never think about hair the same way. What a scandal that was.
