Not for those of us with large, manly beards, according to the article.

then tell my beard to grow faster, i only have enough growth to shave maybe once every two days.
 
2006-09-03 10:29:45 PM

Just alternate what you shave.
Day 1: Face
Day 2: Nads


Repeat indefinately

Crap. I can push it to a week without shaving if I want to. I'm doomed!

I shave with a 1940s German straight-razor.
The rest of you are pussies.

Can we say correlation vs. causation?

I shave with an obsidian knife dug-up from some old Maidu campsite, pussy.

No breakdown of single-blade versus multi-blade shaving? Electric razor effect? Frequent thoughtful chin-stroking? This science is bland.
 
2006-09-03 11:02:06 PM  
They do a study about the effects of not shaving, and then don't include an entire group that doesn't shave (as in, people with beards)??????????? Now that is craptacular scientific method!

Respect.
Shaving your face on a bench grinder is a lost art.

/my grandpa did that

Worst. Science. Ever.

The 500 infrequent shavers were found to be more likely to smoke - a known risk factor for stroke. They were also more likely to have angina and do manual work, but were less likely to be married.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. And when you're done sucking on that cancer stick, you can mow my lawn you stinky bastard! What? You don't need to go home. Nobody's there for you.
 
2006-09-03 11:39:24 PM  
I chew my facial hair off from the inside, you don't?
 
2006-09-03 11:39:24 PM  
Nerdlinger

I shave by pulling each single strand of hair off my face, pussy.
 
2006-09-03 11:40:28 PM  
I shave with fire. The only way to ensure closeness.
 
2006-09-03 11:40:44 PM  
I don't think so much that it meant that the actual act of shaving has anything to do with it, but rather, the need to shave, because of different hormone levels.

Still, pretty retarded.
 
2006-09-03 11:40:52 PM  
I use a chainsaw.
 
2006-09-03 11:41:01 PM  
I, like Chuck Norris, roundhouse kick the hairs from my chin.

Pussies.
 
2006-09-03 11:41:08 PM  
I dip my facial hair in pig's blood, then stick my face into a tank full of piranhas, pussy.

The 500 infrequent shavers were found to be more likely to smoke - a known risk factor for stroke. They were also more likely to have angina and do manual work, but were less likely to be married.

The study also found men who shaved less regularly were at a higher risk of suffering a heart attack and of suffering from lung cancer.

But when other risk factors were taken into account, particularly smoking, these factors disappeared.


That's...that's...
 
2006-09-03 11:41:45 PM  
more likely to have angina

Yes, but is it acute angina?
 
2006-09-03 11:42:38 PM  
Am I the only one who removes facial hair by rubbing a three-day-old beard on a women's inner thigh?
 
2006-09-03 11:42:54 PM  
I shave by putting my face on a deli slicer and then use the deep-fryer oil as after-shave, pussy.
 
2006-09-03 11:43:04 PM  
I shave with the sharpened bones of the people who I have conquered, using their blood as aftershave.

Time to invest in Gillette stocks!
 
2006-09-03 11:45:20 PM  
At the time the study began, in the late 70s, the prevailing trend was to be clean-shaven

What the hell planet did they conduct this study on?

And yet, Dennis Miller remains perfectly healthy.


Quick, someone tell Eminem not to shave !!!!

"Men with beards were not included in the study"


Well they wouldn't would they
 
2006-09-03 11:47:11 PM  
Is it just me or do they never specify if they are talking about the frequency of actual shaving, or the need to actually shave? 'Cause with mentioning hormones it sounds like they are talking about guys that don't need to shave often because it grows slow not guys that don't shave often cause they're lazy.

I shave by scuba diving face first into the propeller of a moving aircraft carrier, pussy

Articles like that one only prove that retards are perfectly capable of securing jobs as research scientists.

You all are pussys! I shave with a gas mower. Not the electric kind though, they suck.
 
2006-09-03 11:50:00 PM  
For those of you who didn't RTFA...

It doesn't matter how often you actually shave; it only matters how often you should shave, i.e., how quickly your facial hair grows. Giving up shaving doesn't do anything for your risk.

I shave by skydiving in front of moving airplanes and helicopters, pussies
 
2006-09-03 11:50:59 PM  
Meh, this sounds like a really dumb study anways (not shaving often being common with guys with bad habbits, not that the act of shaving makes any actual difference unless you shave with butter and a chain saw).
 
2006-09-03 11:51:25 PM  
"However, even after all the factors were considered, researchers found they were had a 70% increased risk of having a stroke and a 30% increased risk of dying from any cause."

Any cause??? So does that mean that the remaining 70% are likely to be immortal?
