    Lightbulb Advice for a balding man

    Iím going bald , there I admit it

    Ive chatted with friends and bar buddies about my best course of action , and they seem divided on what they would recommend .

    I am at stage F on the baldness chart , the things that are running through my mind are .



    In no particular order .....

    1. Do nothing and just keep the hair short. ( as I do now )

    2. Grow it a lot longer and sweep it all backwards then tie it in a pony tail arrangement .

    3. Cut all the hair really short like a military cut .

    4. Completely shave the head .

    5. Grow the hair to a longer length , then comb it to hide the bald patch some how .

    No. 4 sounds appealing considering the hot climate , but my wife says that shaved heads make men look older .

    I feel like I should be doing something , but not sure what .

    Any one gone through the same dilemma .

    when people ask me why I shave my head I always tell them that it's the only way I can keep it all the one length...

    Such simple and constructive advice , only one problem , hats are for old men and I don't want to be associated with the word ''old '' , well not just yet , is being 68 really considered that old , if the forum consensus is a majority Yes . Then I will immediately look for a sturdy chair , a length of thick nylon rope , and a tall tree.

    A rope thread?

    Natural, untreated hemp rope, hand-twisted in Romania into 50 foot bundles of various diameters.
    Made from dry-spun hemp yarns, this rope is traditional, rustic style hemp rope unchanged and in continuous use for centuries.
    This rope is suited for outdoor as well as indoor use.
    A classic product with a truly rustic and natural look.
    You'll get years of use for out of this hemp rope regardless of the application.

    Needs a pic



    Pure premium 100% organic European hemp ropes. Sweatshop-free.
    We grow, process, and manufacture the strongest, cleanest, and purest hemp ropes in-house in volume.
    Made from high-quality long-staple hemp bast fibers, not the acid-processed, shredded short bits that are quite common in hemp manufacturing.
    The possibilities are endless.
    Our super-smooth hemp ropes are skin-friendly and whole industries of hemp bondage, home decor, furniture, toys, and accessories has formed around them

    I was a D and for a long time cut it really short with the clippers.

    My ex wife talked me into going to a hair loss centre and took some medication.
    Ashley and Martin Perth - Hair Loss Treatment

    It actually worked but about $1800 a year. Made a big difference and I was back to the A.

    A few years ago I went to a charity auction and shaved my head to raise money. I was thinking of doing this for awhile.

    Once I shaved it I have continued to shave. I like it this way now and its really the in thing with a lot of guys.

    I have a story relating to rope , involving my late fathers premature arrest and incarceration due to an unsavory night time incident that took place behind Mr Patel's mobile chip shop van , with a large cucumber and a second hand bicycle pump and a length of rope , all being brought into court as prosecution evidence.

    I, for once, agree with M26!
    You're 68 - live with it.
    And if you can't feel anything below your waist porn is all you've got.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    Yeah but not your Alzeimhers where you forget how many times you've posted the same disgusting pics of fat chicks 55555!
