    Here's a picture of me brushing my teeth.


    On an unrelated note: Is long hair lame? I'm thinking of growing my hair to shoulder length at least. My girlfriend doesn't really like it. But maybe it's the metal guy in me (I am in a metal band) but long hair is pretty sweet.

    Your expression + hair reminds me of Jack Black. Good or bad is your decision.

    For reference, here is an equally terrible pic of me with short hair


    I don't photograph well.

    I've been growing my hair out, & I get compliments. IMHO, the key is keeping it long,, yet neat & clean looking... Remember, my day job is as a software developer for a utility company. ie, pretty conservative.
  7. Do it long and shaggy and heavy nordic beard.

    I had long hair till last Sat, cut my beautiful curly locks. Now I got this David Byrne thing goin on ....ehhh
  8. you gotta let your freak flag fly, man.
  9. Being half native american, there is no other hair that looks as good on me as long hair does. And yes that was generalizing, but its true for me.
  10. most of my friends have long hair, including my half korean/irish friend, its weird as hell. hes smart but hes irish so it cancels out all the stereotype things asians have. i have surfer/skater hair kinda, but i looked like a bald 5 year old chipmunk when i had short hair in 7th grade, i pretty much had no hair
  11. Matt, m'man, I say grow thine locks long and the metal gods will smile unto thee.

    That said, as you've realized the girl situation can get a little more sketchy from then on....has for me. Not that I really had good skillz with the opposite gender anyways, but my mane is a total turn-off to most ladies. :D :(

    Meanwhile, they love the texture. :rolleyes:

    But hey, you're taken! Score! Alright. Less to worry about..

    I'd go with the long hair, maybe not shoulder length, but long.

    I had my long hair phase in high-school. I like it short now (I'm in a rock/metal band as well). If you think you can pull it off, do it... but don't let it get all greasy and nasty.

    I have had short hair all my life. I'm growing mine out for the first time.

    I'm in a rock metal band, but I'm bald. Frankly, no matter what I tell people, I secretly miss my hair with a passion and I'm incredibly jealous of all those with awesomely long hair.
    A roundabout way of saying: Go for it.

    However, on the gf note: My gf never wanted me to grow a beard. I never went long enough past the itchy stage to grow it, so I didn't. Then after a very long time, we broke up, and for a change of pace, I tried it. You konw what? she was right. I looked like an idiot.

    You'll look badass, but just keep in mind, the special lady may not just be all shrewy. She could be right.

    Personally I'm not hot on long hair on guys, but if they like it, I'm all for it. If my fella said, "Woman, I'ma growin' my hair out," I'd be all, "Good for you." I'd give an opinion, but I wouldn't tell him not to because I didn't like it.

    How I turned this into a mememe thing, I'm not sure. Sorry, Matt.
  19. I grow my hair long, then cut it short... Its a cycle. Its happend probably 5 times so far. Its starting to get long again. This time im going to grow it aslong as i can, then get the dreads put in.

    I'm going to have to see one of you wiping your ass before I can really make a decision.
