  1. well, now that I know the frequency of shaving does not affect in any way the speed of facial hair’s growth I have almost made up my mind to grow beard again. There is still something I am not sure about. Will I have a thick beard if I shave frequently?

  2. Not necessarily, it is more genetic than anything else. Shaving frequently will not effect growth rate at all. Good Luck Taranu!

  3. These are some pretty interesting facts that I haven’t heard before. Some of them are a little hard to believe like the average person will spend 3350 hours shaving over his lifetime. Maybe I’m just doing it wrong because I don’t spend a lot of time shaving.

  4. Number 13 made me think of something that I saw on the television. It was about a new type of beer called beer beard. It is made from the yeast off of beards. Kind of made me laugh and gag at the same time. Also, Abraham Lincoln's beard quest always makes me chuckle since it shows that sometimes a beard has to be grown to please others.

  5. Oh my goodness, they have an association for everything. How did a women get a beard that long? Was she taking hormones or something? These are interesting to say the least.
