I'm going to bald, whose coming with me!
« on: March 30, 2003, 10:42 AM »
Well, it ain't a country in Europe, and most people sure as hell don't want to see it... It's bald... :(

Yea, I'm 18, and looking at my grandfathers, I can tell which one I favor the most in the good ol gene pool... so I give myself about 10 years before I really begin to bald.

So, what I'm getting at is this... Has anyone tried Rogaine? I gotta be honest I have no idea what Rogaine really is, but if it works, I'm all for it in about 10 years...

Of course, if I shave my head that'd solve the problem for good :-X ....

Nothing wrong about being bald. It's the in thing now.
There are alot of people at work with the old shaven look.  I'd rather be going bald than going grey.  :o

Dude, just shave it. I don't even mean Bic it. I have been shaving my head since I was in 8th grade. That was 10 years ago.

Trust me, it's a nice look.

I agree, I have been buzzing mine for 13 years. Most people like it. I wouldn't worry about it now, if in the future you are concerned then talk to your Dr. but personally there are things that will help keep what hair you have with out rogaine.

I've been accused of going bald since I was in 6th grade, which was like 16 years ago.  I have a really, really high forehead but I haven't lost any hair since then.  So while I may look bald, I'm not and I don't think I am going bald.  More of an Eddie Munster or Count Dracula looks with the big Widow's Peak

Good ol' Scott...  ;)...

As far as shaving it goes... I think I'll wait until after graduation before I shave my head. There's an indian-way that says when you go nuts with your hair (shaving, mohawk, etc) that it means your preparing for an extreme act, so I don't wanna alarm anyone as superstitious as me...

Bob is not even close to being bald. That man doesn't need a barber, he needs a weedeater.  ;D

I think Brent was talking about Bob's hair looking like Episode IV Obi-Wan instead of Episode II Obi-Wan

Quite so, OCB, quite so.  

Though I always envision Bob more as Palpatine from ROTJ.

No baldness in my family, sorry. I've always had a thick head of hair, although the hairline has always been high. When Episode I came out I had the Qui-Gon 'do (two feet long, top knot, sometimes braided), but after having long hair for five years, I decided to go Padawan. People didn't recognize me for weeks.

I'll probably grow it out again once I get a lot more grey, but I swore if I ever started to go bald, I'd just do a Picard Maneuver and shave it close. It's just hair.

Hmmm...  I think someone needs to tattle-tale on all you folks talking trash behind Bob's back like this!  For shame...  Didn't you guys ever learn to respect your elders?!?  Wonder who's going to blow the whistle on your little party here and alert the fella...   ;)

You guys are going to be in deep Bantha poodoo when he finds out about this...

...

...

BTW, the hair on my head is just fine.  But in a true physical oddity - my shins have recently gone bald.  Seriously.  Pretty weird really...   :-\
