"I personally use a small detail attachment to my wahl beard trimmer and trim the hair to my top lip line or SLIGHTLY above to where you can't see visually tell, but I can feel the difference. As for the sides that connect downward I slightly…"
"Man, wanting to better yourself is great. However, don't take away from what you are currently doing. In my opinion your job is more manly then the burrliest of construction workers. Any "man" that looks down on your job and taking…"
"I am a PC gamer when I have the time.. I've.never cared.for console games as they have always been several steps behind the PC's capabilities. Anyway, I currently play Diablo 3, DayZ and my all time favorite Ultima Online. UO has been…"
"I am currently on the 5th or 6th ADHD Med. For some reason my body fights it off, a typical ER concerta for example lasts most people 12 hours or so and then still causes sleep trouble at night. I get 4-6 hours off the ER, and then would take 2…"
