Tuesday's Trivia: Things Are Getting Hairy!

Because you've been wondering,

Because you're the curious sort,


Because it's Tuesday,


Because I have nothing else to post:


It's time for ...

Here we go with a nod to http://www.blurtit.com/!


1. The total number of potential beard hairs on a man's face is said to average around 30,000.

2. Beards grow about 5 inches a year.

3. Men without beards spend about 800-3000 hours of their lives shaving (10-15 hours a year)

4. Caution and Checkered's boys still swear by shaving with cake frosting. Says it leaves their skin soft and smooth.

And now your Tuesday is better for this knowledge.

Mental P Mama said...

I feel like I've sprouted just about 30,000 hairs on my chin alone these past few years.

When I was a kid, I always wanted to be like my Dad and put shaving cream on my face. Now? Not so much.

You must be a mind reader, because this is just what I was wondering this morning during my shave.

Mother nature must have had a sense of humor when she came up with that pay back. I want to know how many facial lacerations occur when men hold sharp objects against their face.

Too true! I keep my skin soft and smooth with vast amounts of frosting as well, but taken internally!

I better not tell Mr. M about the frosting tip. He'll want to start shaving tomorrow.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

OH my gosh I love that shaving cream! How adorable, and even better how much fun to take it all off.

But for the record, I have 40,598 hairs on my beard, so I win.
