"Yeah, I had the idea when I read the comics because a lot of real world locations were used in the books. Because of that, my interest was piqued in Toronto's coolness... and then there's also Nirvana the Band the Show."

Beard vitamins? Or other ways to thicken the beard?

Hello mates,Largely, my beard is good.  Not perfect, though.  Very thick on the chin, sideburns good, slightly patchy in the middle of the jaw, thin on neck (underside of jaw).  For some unknown reason, the left side of my chin has thinned out quite a bit, and it looks lopsided.  Not sure why.I do have a terrible habit of fiddling with my beard (and therefore pulling hairs) without intentionally doing it, and I continually try to find ways to subvert myself.Anyway, any ideas on a good beard…See More
