100% of women like a guy with a nicely developed chin, but less than 100% like a guy with a beard. so, if you have a good chin and then cover it with a beard, you're fucking up statistically. consequently, beards have become synonymous with weak-chinned motherfuckers (and double-chinned motherfuckers) who use facial hair to cover their shame. so not only might you run into a woman who just isn't into beards, but you add on women who dislike it because get why a large percent of men wear a beard: to cover their facial shortcomings.

I cant stand anything more than 4 or 5 day growth. Ironically, I can't really go clean shaven either because i get ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and overall redness no matter how much preparation I use before shaving... I'll go clean shaven once or twice a year for special occasions but otherwise I use a dulled set of hair clipers on my face every other day to trim it perfect 3 day growth that is just hardly visible but still conservative enough to blend in.
>Added bonus of looking pic related is that I look older, and more masculine with the stubble bringing out my jawline.
so far, haven't had a job that complained about it. And i've done white, blue and pink collar work.

I've had a pretty big beard for maybe 9 months now. I hate the whole beard-culture manly lumberjack trend but we don't really have that in my country so it's not so bad.

I'm starting to get a bit bored of it but I'm worried about how I'll look without it, I get compliments about it ALL THE TIME from complete strangers.

huffing was always that one drug that I think "why?"

>> No.9405822

Despite the emerging trend of "lumbersexual" and the whimsical belief that facial hair makes one "more of a man", it still holds a stigma of unprofessionalism and poor hygiene. Take that, along with the fact that not everyone's face is made for a beard, better or worse genetics for facial hair, and it's not feasible for everyone.

The "low test" argument is invalid because the demographic you're describing with said "low test" are the ones who relish a bearded look. Most people who sport a "full, thick beard" are neckbeards who found MFA and discovered personal hygeine, or insecure men who are more than likely closet homosexuals for Dan Bilzerian.

Clean-shaven will always be king. Maybe your beard is acceptable at your small-time, liberal company with no dress code (read: self-respect) and doesn't even sit in the Fortune 1000, but not the majority of the world. You think you look like the guy from 'Fast n' Loud' but you're just another average looking twenty-something, hiding a complexion riddled with blemishes and acne scars under a patchy rug of greasy facial hair.

I couldn't grow a beard if my life depended on it. I think it's my native american blood. Thick hair atop and never going to bald almost makes up for it.

do you not understand how rankings work or do you expect me to screenshot all 1,000 companies?

here, let me explain rankings to you, you child: the top ranks in any ranking system represent the epitome of those qualities and attributes for which that ranking system selects. therefore, the top rankings of the Fortune list are, by definition, the epitome of what it is to be a Fortune company. therefore, Wal Mart in 2014 is a better representation of what it means to be a Fortune company than any other company.

Except you went through the effort to make a point that literally had nothing to do with what I said initially.

You blindly grouped all Fortune-ranked companies under your "international mega corporations" label, adding something else that really didn't fit, and sealing your autistic envelope with a metaphor. All in all, despite the fact that I pointed out to you that not every company had to fall under that label you pressed onto it.

But no, that just couldn't slide. You had to deliver me a screenshot of the first 14, to really emphasize the point that a brash generalization couldn't be made more clear...by wait...more generalizations! After I pointed out your mistake, you responded with a long-winded explanation as to why your little summary made perfect sense, all despite the fact you still ignored what I was trying to convey.

To that, I "rebutted" with general sarcasm and a fair presumption of your education, simply because you cannot get around your thick-headed belief as to what you were actually talking about.

To your defense (which you couldn't put in words because I assume you do not understand them), is that yes, the Fortune 500/1000 is ranked based on revenue. You pointed it out that Wal-Mart is a prime example of this, but you fail to recognize that every company in this ranking, isn't globally-operated with tens of thousands of employees. Again, it's all based on revenue alone.

Really read through what I'm saying here and let it sink in. I'm just trying to help, I don't want to make you feel inadequate.

I'm going to make tea, but I'd like some to drink will you craft up a response with greentext and weak verbal assaults.

>> No.9407153


lmao brah you still don't understand my point do you. it doesn't matter if the actual traits that fortune selects for are not global operation and number of employees; if the traits it does select for result in a list of companies that, by an overwhelming majority, are global and huge then it is accurate to describe fortune companies as generally having those qualities. when people talk about fortune 500 companies they are not referring to the 3 aberrations in the list, else they would just refer to those aberrations directly.

So what was your point to begin with? (late-adopter, all that jazz) If said companies are so successful, why aren't they the ideal employer? Why is the stigma behind classic, white-collar business such a turn-off for you?

>> No.9407215

the social contexts that allow large corporations to be successful are changing. it's a way of business and life that is coming to a dead end. because it results in situations like greece and iceland (and similar stories with different results all throughout latin america and africa and asia). there comes a point where people reject coca cola and the imf, reject international debt, reject wal marts over local industry.

>> No.9407237

That's such a hard belief to grasp based on pure economics, though.
