HadesThunder: i find shaving nasty,.. its pure torture for me .. so i don't shave, and i haven't got a haircut in months (in half a year or so ill be able to put it in a ponytail me thinks )

I'm just to lazy to cut/shave my hair (plus shaving hurts, and you have to do it everyday)

SciYro, it took me little over 10 months before I could put my hair in a ponytail. Kept it like that for close to two months but had to cut it off 'coz the summers here are awful.

I still have a beard though. Get it trimmed twice a month

The only glasses I have are 1 yellow plastic glasses to make me look ugly and smart when going to an interview.
Still have the frenchie beard, althought I reverted to a LOTR Aragon beards for a while and realised it took too much work at the cheeks and neck.
SciRo, why does it hurt to shave? I trim and shave my designer stubble every day and it does not hurt. But when I shave and trim my crotch every week it sometimes goes red, but does not hurt.

LinuxLala. I always figured you were a woman, and never expected you would have a beard. Thats my dreams of meeting a SuperModel female geek.

I did have glasses untill I had the prk surgery (went with prk instead of lasik for the better recovery drugs). But I am still a geek, just in disguise. Until there is an emergency and I am needed. Like the opposite of Clark Kent / Superman.

Any guy who said the last sentence to me would get rugby tackled to the ground But then if you changed to buy yourself some new shoes or some new glasses I would be quite happy.

Along with yourself? Steroids and body buidling are the bane on feminity.
Geeks can be macho. Mike Tyson was a Cisco Guru before he bit of a CCNA's ear. Honest

I am not a guy.

Not everyone who uses linux is a guy

And I definitely don't use steroids. I don't want a hairy chest or a beard. I don't body build either as the muscles obtained would be useless for doing proper sport.

I have met some nice looking geeks (male variety) ....... but that's a different story.

I wear contacts when doing sport and when I can be bothered in the day.

I was interested in laser surgery until I noticed that all opticians and other eye specialists I know wear glasses, and actually need to wear them.

I have a theory on the whole glasses = intelligence stereotype. See if you agree. In the days when paper first started to become available it wasn't anything like it is now. I suggest that when one would write on this paper, that it would be distorted somewhat. As it aged and was handled it would become even more distorted, so the scholars of the time would use a simple magnifying glass to be able to read it. Thus, since most people at the time couldn't read unless they were educated, glasses = intellect. Of course it could of been common practice before the days of paper. This one was just off the top of my head so, well you know.
