I have a bit of a beard.

I don't let stuff get caught up in it, any more than anybody else gets chili on their chins.

I also wear, glasses, tho not in that shot.

What makes someone look more intelligent, glasses or beards?
i got both, i hate shaving cause it hurts, so now i haven't shaved in about 6 months i think (and for some reason the bottom of my chin don't really grow hair at all, and my mustache hasn't grown in like .. forever)... or got a hair cut .... anyways

+ u never get smacked in the face when u r wearing glasses lol!
you obviously haven't met this one girl i know, she smacked my glasses off like 10 times in 1 school year (thats at least 10 times), altho i didn't mind it, whatever doesn't hurt feels good is what i always say (altho i classify hurt as in breaking of bones, or serious sprains .... so might not wanna listen to me)

and where i live wearing gasses(in my former school at least) is almost asking for someone to smack them off (glad I'm outa that hell hole )

I wear glasses because my eyes hurt + mega death headaches when I use the computer. Beards only make you look wiser if they at least reach your chest, or you have a full beard (nothing fancy) and a bit more in the age category.

LOL,I think that geeks are seen as wearing glasses because most people think of people who wear glasses as someone who knows a lot about computers/tech--I wear glasses but now wear contacts. I'm still treated as a geek though!

I already have tattoes of evil creatures that haunt the devil, I have a grill for stir frying animal flesh, but not on my teeth, but I don't know what wife beaters are. Are they dungareens? I am not American so don't know the slang.

RE:

Wife beaters are basically white tank top undershirts. They got the term because alot of low class men wore em who beat their spouses...Personally I dont think the two go hand in hand

Got a beard and I wear glasses. Then again, RMS has a beard(I don't give a damn what you call it) and Linus wears glasses.


Stupidest thing you ever heard huh...

I don't see women complaining about Craig Davids designer stubble and I don't see men going off Anastacia because she wears glasses. Both are intelligent and in some cases se*y.

I wear coloured glasses when I don't wont the secret service to recognize me as Bill Laden and Allah to recognize me as Britney Spears.
