Chart of the day

Trends in male facial hair via Vox.  Oh how wish this chart didn’t stop back in 1972.  I’d love to know just how unusual I am now in having a beard.  I also suspect that beards are way more popular than moustaches for the first time in a long while.  On a related note, wow, the introduction of the safety razor sure made a difference.  My oldest son is 15 and he really needs to start using one.  Alas, he is deathly afraid of anything sharper than a butter knife.  Civil War general look for him?

Mustaches, Beards, and more
