This! Is! Sparta!

So, my friends JSR and Annette have started up a podcast, wonderfully called Is It Nap Time. You can listen to it here, and I wholeheartedly recommend you do so…

One thing they mention that is of grave concern to me, and indeed to the world, is that recent research suggests that only seven percent of women find beards attractive. Now, there’s no great secret as to why this is the case; it’s simply that ninety-three percent of women are wrong about what is attractive.

However, just so that there’s no confusion on this serious issue, here begins Brain Stab’s Week Of Beards. What is involved in this is Beards.

Here, to begin, is Burning Beard, by Clutch, where the lead singer, Neil Fallon, possesses a beard you could get lost in, and levitates through the holy power of rock.

Bearded rock.

That’s right.

It's the Lord's work you do.
Any other year, I would be about a month into my winter beard at this stage, but the new girl falls into the 93% and I am also trying to get job interviews. If I freeze to death in the northern winter due to this lack of insulation you will speak well of me to future generations, won't you?

And I normally try so hard to be in the minority...

No. I will point at your smooth, frozen carcass and say "Look, children, at the consequences of beardlessness, and tremble!"

And Maud: sometimes the majority's wrong. I'd come up with a pithy example, but hell, the fact of only seven percent of women liking beards is example enough...

OK, look -- when you get to Alan Moore (and we all know you'll be getting to Alan Moore), can you make sure to use an older photo of him? His beard used to be an artifact of wonder -- these days it just scares the shit out of me.
