    Wow... it's almost as old as me. I'm seriously impressed! Do you trim it? I wish my wife would tolerate no trimming, but she doesn't like it, otherwise I'd give the gandalf style beard a shot, you know?

    Incidentally, the bearded lady comment reminded me of a wonderful scene from blackadder...

    I can't stand the BlackAdder shows - completely unfunny.

    Great shows Even was a fan of the first series which most people don't. Very Peter Cook

    And just to show that Blackadder as a TV series was happy with either genders, Nursery's first name was Bernard She probably had to shave.

    You may have guessed I quite like Blackadder ...

    As for facial hair, mine varies from clean-shaven, a few days of stubble, a stubbly goatee, a thick goatee, a goatee with stubble on the side ... through to a month of goatee with 2 weeks of growth on the sides.

    I just like to surprise people when I come into work.

    I haven't any facial hair, so I can't be a geek either..

    (And a ginger, too - is there no hope)

    But MrwITch, who is of course a geek as well, has had a full beard ever since I have known him which is 25 years. It was a full-on jet black pirate beard in those days, now it is a very short, grey, nearly stubble-type thing.

    I had fully intended to keep my long hair and big bushy beard for good. However some time ago I was persuaded to have half the beard and half of the heair on my head shaved off [opposite sides] and the quarters sprayed four different colours.

    All this for charity. On that occasion we raided over £ 2000 [in conjunction with a Beaujolais run.

    We have had several shavings since with the amount raised going down each time.

    I shan't do another charity event bas I expect it would raise very little but I do not regret cutting off the hair and beard even though it has never really grown back properly.

    There's a vital option missing from the poll... "Van Dyke"... so I can't vote!
    I think that many of the blokes who voted "Goatee" may also have a "Mo", in which case they've voted incorrectly...

    I'm happy to admit I'm lazy so it gets done once or twice a week when I can be bothered so if its a lazy week its very designer, but it does get annoying if i leave it too long. Should keep it as designer and keep it that way but takes effort and I'm lazy.

    How can a geek's facial hair contribute to anything related to our "geekyness" though goodness only knows its as bad as the hair debate on length.

    Whatever happened to the pony-tail as proof of geekiness then (optionally co-ordinated with a PGP in perl t-shirt)?

    Now back to clean-shaven (ok ... a day or two stubble) and grade 1 hair. I look almost thug-ish .... if I wasn't so cute
