    Anybody else workin' on their quarantine beard?

    With the stay at home orders abounding, and social gatherings being avoided, I've found that I've forgone the usual ritual of shaving to appease "The Man".
    I don't have the genes to sport flowing chin locks, but I'm giving it my best attempt, haha. I can manage a goatee just fine, but anywhere beyond a 1/2in to either side of the mouth is basically barren land with patches of growth here and there. I've never had the opportunity to really see what I can grow since it looks so bad during this stage. But since the wife and kids are the only people I'll see for the next 3 weeks, let the experiment begin!

    So, are any men out there doing the same?

    Any women?

    I'm way ahead of the curve. I started mine during SARS.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    What's this 'quarantine' you're talking 'bout?
    No beards allowed. I gotta gown up and put on an N95 mask minimum (or a surgical mask plus a face shield) with the patients manifesting symptoms (primarily fever and pneumonia) of the Wuhan Virus. Besides, too much grey in my beard now, I'd just look like an old man

    Paper face masks with elastic bands don't "seal" at all. They conform and only serve to block direct vectors of spray.
    If it gets to the point where I need to don the gas mask and require a true seal, the razor comes out.

    Oh, it's not good...
    The cheek fluff @KUSA is sporting is only a pipe dream for yours truly.
    I've got the kind of face fur that needs a shave every 3 days or so. I thank mother's father for that. He had a full head of hair until the day he died, but shaved once a week, haha.
