Yeah, didn't look too good to be honest. But it would take 7-10 days for me to develop the beard-effect.

What is this "Male Giant Bombers" business? Are you saying female Giant Bombers can't grow a beard? Get the fuck out of my face with your misogynist agenda!

...

Yes, I can grow a beard.

#3 Posted by Video_Game_King (36566 posts) -

I have a beard.

#4 Edited by TheBluthCompany (454 posts) -

Does neck beard count?

#5 Posted by zoozilla (1004 posts) -

To my everlasting shame, I cannot grow a decent beard. The best I can do is some scruffy chin-hairs.

#6 Edited by casper_ (915 posts) -

if by beard you mean pedo-stache then yes.

#7 Edited by 49th (3116 posts) -

Yeah, it grows quite quickly within a week or two and looks alright. I usually trim it for about a month then shave it all off and repeat.

#9 Posted by Stonyman65 (3081 posts) -

Yup. That was after a month of "no shave November"

#10 Edited by Jay_Ray (1244 posts) -

Yes, I fucking hate trimming a long beard though so I usually keep it at 5-10 day long stubble (I guess it's not really stubble but it's not what I call beard length)

#11 Posted by Daveyo520 (7378 posts) -

No :(

#12 Posted by wjb (1763 posts) -

I can grow a full beard, but I haven't had one in a while. Clean-shaven > beard.

#13 Posted by ZeForgotten (10368 posts) -

What kind of person in a used-to-be-filled-with-vikings country would I be if I couldn't.
Ugh, just the thought of not being able to makes me sad

#14 Posted by Clonedzero (4206 posts) -

Yes, i usually keep it at a nice thick stubble. I can't stand being clean shaven, it feels "wrong".

#15 Edited by crusader8463 (14755 posts) -

Yes/no. It grows in clumps and never very thick. When I don't shave for a week the lower half of my chin looks like a hairy scrotum without the wrinkles. I also can't grow facial hair in the moustache area. I have never had to shave there my entire life and its barren of hair.

It makes me very sad that I'm not able to as well. As a kid it's the only reason I was looking forward to getting older and growing up. I dreamt of the day I could grow facial hair but it will never be. Get your shit together science!

#16 Posted by IcedWhale (62 posts) -

Yes I could, but I can't since it violates the terms of my work agreement. Stupid safety standards.

#17 Posted by Pr1mus (4107 posts) -

Yes

#18 Edited by Sackmanjones (5216 posts) -

Why only males?

#19 Edited by smcn (949 posts) -

I go with a stache/goatee like Patrick, but I trim it real short like Timothy Olyphant on Justified except I'm nowhere near as handsome. If I shave it off I look like Jim Norton, probably because I shave my head too.

#20 Posted by Philedius (214 posts) -

I've never tried for longer than two weeks, but after those two weeks it wasn't looking real hot, yo. I can't really grow anything in the "Hitler-area" of my upper lip, and the moustache doesn't connect very well with the cheeks and chin. I wish I could grow a real beard.

#21 Posted by MistaSparkle (2283 posts) -

I don't think so. Whenever I try to let it grow out its so itchy that I decide not to deal with it anymore. Maybe that goes away the more you grow it out, though...but I don't know.

#22 Posted by jkz (4083 posts) -

I can but I hate long beards; too messy and tough to keep clean and kempt. Trim it every day to 12-9mm.

#23 Edited by pyromagnestir (4386 posts) -

No.

#24 Edited by Abendlaender (3005 posts) -

I'm much more interested in how many female Giant Bombers can grow a beard.

But to answer this: Saddly I can. Super annoying, if it was a bit cheaper I would shoot lasers at my face to stop it.

#25 Edited by MariachiMacabre (7097 posts) -
#26 Edited by _Chad (999 posts) -

Yes, it keeps my face warm.

#27 Posted by Clonedzero (4206 posts) -

Also, why is this for male giant bombers only? Some females can grow beards.

SEXIST BULLSHIT!

#28 Edited by Shimmy (197 posts) -

No, but then I don't feel I live a beardy sort of life.

#29 Edited by Bocam (4043 posts) -

I've seen many women with beards.

#31 Edited by AgnosticJesus (547 posts) -

I can grow a pretty nice beard, I've gone through puberty.

#32 Edited by Kidable (130 posts) -

Yeah but mine just stops growing at like...2 centimeters long and just looks messy and unkempt and pubic.

#33 Posted by Butler (399 posts) -

Rocking a handlebar mustache and trimmed the beard down to a triangular shape. Now I just need to learn how to fence and I can hop into my time travel machine and blend in.

Beard on brothers and sisters.

#34 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1154 posts) -

Yes/no. It grows in clumps and never very thick. When I don't shave for a week the lower half of my chin looks like a hairy scrotum without the wrinkles. I also can't grow facial hair in the moustache area. I have never had to shave there my entire life and its barren of hair.

I feel you not being able to grow in certain spot-ness. With my facial hair, the mustache, soul patch, and lower beard never connect, so even at my best I get a sort of Bon Iver looking thing going.

It's so frustrating! You're so close, damn it!

#35 Posted by Slay3r1583 (682 posts) -

Nope, I'm 30 years old and I can't grow any kind of facial hair. My face isn't completely hair free so I do occasionally have to shave but it is just so thin and sparse it doesn't form into any thing.

#36 Edited by FunkasaurasRex (855 posts) -

I suppose I could, but it probably wouldn't look very good.

Also I don't think generic metal-head-guy looks particularly badass, but whatever.

#37 Edited by MordeaniisChaos (5904 posts) -

I can, but I try to keep it at stubble.

#38 Posted by Deadmanforking (584 posts) -

Nope, just comes in all patchy. I'm only 21 so fingers crossed for the future...

#39 Posted by Dan_CiTi (3979 posts) -

I have all the cool facial hair and nice full chest hair, but it has never really gotten me anything more overheated during the summer. Also having a beard / a lot of facial hair as well as really long hair is just a nuisance and makes me unnecessarily warmer / sweatier as well.

#40 Posted by Max_Cherry (1216 posts) -

Yes. I can grow a beard very quickly.

#41 Posted by cloudymusic (1421 posts) -

Yeah, but I keep it short so it doesn't annoy me and/or look too unkempt.

#42 Edited by mlarrabee (3261 posts) -

The cheeks are too spotty. I could grow a decent goatee but that's not my style. My dad was the same way at my age but he's had terrific beards off and on again throughout the years, so I'm not worried.

#43 Edited by Kraznor (1610 posts) -

Well, here is what I have right now. My second attempt at growing facial hair (well...second one I kept for any length of time). Feedback welcome.

#44 Edited by Roger778 (960 posts) -

I have had a nicely groomed, beard for years, and I don't plan on getting rid of it.

#45 Posted by Fredchuckdave (7444 posts) -

Yep, and I even have red hair to boot; Norse blood reigns supreme.

#46 Edited by believer258 (12965 posts) -

Eh. Not really. Not one that I could be satisfied with, anyway, and I'd rather be clean-shaven.

#47 Edited by SomeJerk (3732 posts) -

I've got a shaolin master goatee.

#48 Posted by CornBREDX (6747 posts) -

Yes.

Weird that it is considered not bad ass if you can't.

Having a beard makes you look older, and not having one makes you look younger.

As I get older the idea of looking younger is actually fairly appealing.

#49 Edited by JJWeatherman (14801 posts) -

Yeah, sorta. I keep it around out of pity.

I have a beard.

Prove it.

@jjweatherman:

You will understand if I am uncomfortable showing my face.
