Thanks for the welcomes...

My dad is white headed and has the ever-growing spot in the back. He keeps saying he wants to just go ahead and do it, but my step-mom "won't let him". He also keeps saying, "I don't think it would look good professionally."

Dad? You're retired!

If you're thinking of shaving because you're losing  your hair- SHAVE IT!  Nothing looks worse than a guy with a comb-over... plus the Galagher/David Crosby/Friar Tuck look is never in with the ladies...

Also don't respect men who are so concerned about keeping their hair that they take drugs whose side effects include impotence.

I'm reminded of the Snicker's Commercial where the guy made a toupe out of candy bars and everyone laughs at him.

Best that I can give is to take care when shaving for the first time... Make sure you know your head, that you have a Propper razor, and that you have ATLEAST buzzed up your head so that it does not pull, and you don't have to make multiple passes.

And o ya, almost forgot: you might not want to have more than three or four beers in you when you do it.  It becomes so easy to cut the Hell out of your head, and then it becomes all the more easier to expand the Carve into something of a little visible Fault in your scalp.

If you're thinning or balding or whatever, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY JUST SHAVE IT OFF! PLEASE! I'm not balding yet (I'm actually surprised because my dad was going bald at 25) but I have a receding hairline but I'm able to still grow all my hair, but I shave my head instead. I cant stand hair to be honest and it looks hell of alot better on me. This whole comb-over crap is stupid and rediculous. The whole hair club for men is just plain horrendous. Why in God's name would you want a rug slapped to your head! Imagine if that thing fell off or something or blew away in the wind! Imagine how REDICULOUS you would look! I would even laugh myself at such montrosity! Why put yourself in public like that where you know people will stare or laugh and say "does that guy have a rug" or "that is  a nasty combover"....look at Donald Trump! I think that dude looks horrendous I dont care how much money he has, he looks rediculous with that combover. Its disgusting. Remember this, people make fun of bald guys who have combovers or a rug, they dont make fun of people for shaving their heads and looks what I like to call "DECENT and DIGNIFIED. Keep that in mind. Rock on SLY brothers!

Bald Rob, I feel you... But it is bad enough to lie to them about my name, [on occassion] my profession, and practicly everything else!  Got to draw the line somewhere so they don't start "catching on"!  >:D

Got to be believeable... But I Feel ya!

You're never lying to them about your name... you're just misdirecting them "just in case"!

Case in point... I had this attractively challenged chick hitting on me recently, and I told her my name was Paul Burke and gave her his phone number!   O0
