If you have "no place to go," come here!

Truly, we are doomed

I am so ashamed I read this:

"Embracing chest hair is also a reaction to the crisis in masculinity," said [San Francisco-based sociologist Anna Akbari]. "Refusing to trim or shave or wax your chest, and instead let it creep out of the top of your shirt, is a way of shunning the manscaping trend and giving off a signal that you're a manly man."

I know this sounds a little Zen-like, but I am neither refusing nor not refusing to wax my chest. And by so doing I am neither sending nor not sending a "signal" about being (or not being) a "manly man."

Binary thinking, binary thinking... What a plague!

NOTE Wax my chest? Quick, where's the brain bleach?

wow. Glad to see the MSM is reporting a "crisis in masculinity" by focusing on hair style instead of focusing on an overall lack of jobs and jobs that pay enough to support a family.

What is the world coming to when you have to make, er, this sort of product for yourself?!

Yeah, I don't think this is what James Howard Kunstler has in mind when he writes about a world made by hand.

I saw Maya Rudolph joke about this on SNL and had to look it up because I didn't believe it.

I started growing a beard because my electric razor stopped working. Let NBC analyse that statement!
