    I just got angry and shaved my beard off. I've been fiddling with it FAR too much recently, pretty much constantly whilst sat still, pulling, plucking, twirling. I trimmed it down in the hope it'd help but nope, so got annoyed and lopped the ****er off.

    I don't like my face. I feel like I don't know it anymore.

    I can imagine what you're thinking right now. I've not seen my face without a beard since 2013. Last time I did a complete clean shave of my face was summer 2009.

    Not sure I'd enjoy taking my beard off.

    I did the same thing a week or two ago. It was really bugging the hell out of me.

    Mind you I'd like to think i'm getting better looking as I get older, although in reality it's highly likely that's just my eyesight getting worse and putting me in soft focus. :)

    Wore my brand new helmet this morning. Great lid, can't really complain - quiet, we'll ventilated...

    ...except the pinlock inset failed and fogged up. FFS... I know it's wet as **** out there this morning, but having a fogged visor only makes my visibility worse.

    Yes, that sounds familiar. I've had a beard since 1994, and it has been more on than off.
    The length and style vary, but it's only been fully off for a short while 2 or 3 times over those years. About 10 years ago I took it off and was clean shaven 3 days before my wife noticed, and screamed! She then demanded that I 'put it back straight away'! Even with the spreading 'metallic highlights' I still look better with my beard than without...
    @The_Crapman give it a few days and see how you feel about it, without. At least you don't need to buy snything if you want to regrow it...
    The worst part for me when regrowing my beard is that itchy moment 2 weeks in. Get past that and it's fine.

    It used to come off maybe once or twice a year due to a trimming cock-up, but this is the first time in quite a while I've been beardless. I look like I'm 12! :hehe:

    I took mine off last Summer because of the heat, I don't cope well with hot weather. I was disturbed to see my cheeks are going jowly like my mother's face.:eeek::eeek::eeek:

    I stopped shaving again as soon as the weather started to cool again...

    Spent literally the whole weekend working, my to-do list just keeps growing, and my youngest is sick so nobody's sleeping. Hooray(!)

    I've got the Iron Man one of those (I think it's the '17'). It's great.

    The Polestar pished a fluid of some description all over the drive this afternoon when it was started up. Quite a bit of it, from the front and the back.

    Flatbed is picking it up in the morning to take it across to the garage. I'm going to pretend it's just a simple clip that's come loose somewhere until I know otherwise :/

    It would be typical that when it came to the end of its warranty last summer I considered that I have extended the warranties on a bunch of different cars in the past and they've never paid for themselves, so what's the point.

    Car battery is crapped out on me. Had to boast my car this morning with my wife's. Here's hoping it holds so I can get home after work.

    I ordered a HDPLEX AC-DC 160W off flea bay. Arrived today but it had a little rattle. I thought that was a bit strange so opened it up, glad I did. Could have been spectacular had I just plugged it in!

    Can't imagine you'd look that fab after constantly bashing yourself in the face with a white stick. :p
