Default Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

My fiance sent me this message today for some strange reason: "In massachusetts, Goatees are illegal unless you pay a special license fee to wear one in public."

I assume this is one of those weird outdated state laws that no one enforces.

Everybody knows that beards attract big Browns! My beard and I called this one in just the other day.

I have had a beard for the past 8 or 9 years. I tend to let it grow a little bit longer in the winter months.

Just shaved my vacation beard, started it about a week prior to leaving. It lasted one mild-weathered week back in TX, but it's just too hot here right now.

Wise-a** intern told me day before I left,"you know you have a lot of grey in your beard, right?"

#%^*&@ punk... He's just jealous because his beard is weak

I've got a Deadwood-style mustache going right now. It looks pretty stupid, but I just got married and (I checked) stupid facial hair is not suitable grounds for divorce in Massachusetts.

Default Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

Most of the jobs I've had required me to be clean shaved. I'd grow beards when I could. When I got out of active duty after 8 years, I drove a cab in Atlantic City. I grew that thing out till I could part waters or star on the cough drop box and carried 4 d cell flash light. Never doubt the power of a weird appearance. I never got robbed.
Once I was done with uniform jobs, the beard is back for good, though I keep it trimmed short. Great camo in duck season.

Don't make any money bets on that one!

I think I already have! Seriously though, it's been great.

May it long continue...

I wonder if this law applies both ways?
