To bad I didn't know you when we were kids. I would have shit kicked your bullies. Then, as we got older, I would have told how I wished I hadn't done that. You, of course, would respond by saying "STFU! You weren't the one getting bullied! " Seriously though, those bullies must have been lame.
If real life circumstances allowed for it, I would totally be down. Alas, I currently have an obligation that requires me to keep a certain..um..clean appearance. But I might be able to track down an old photo. Off the top of my head, I can't remember, but someone might have "tagged" me in a photo when I head some good growth going. I'll go take a look.
In general, I think an RF beard off is a good idea. It's an Aarsome idea. They did that on Cheers. I might be in position to participate in that if it is held later in the year.
