Paul emails: Hi Luke:
I saw your video “Will a beard hurt my job prospects” on youtube and I just wanted to say I think you have a great beard. I am bearded myself and my dad doesn’t trust men with beards (thinks they’re trying to hide something!) my mum, sister and brother think it is horrible/disgusting etc so I know what it is like, I am also unemployed.
A great website I frequent, I don’t know if you know it, is www.beardcommunity.com containing the largest collection of beard pictures online and a forum, all of which is free, you can read the messages without registering but you do have to register to post messages. I am registered under the screen name Zenzizenzizenzic.
Before you ask a zenzizenzizenzic is a mathematical term for a number raised to the eigth power, it is also the word with the most Z’s having 6. I like words and numbers!
The Beard Community Bulletin Board is a friendly supportive place for those in hte process of growing a beard or just needing support when being attacked (is that the wright word?) for having a beard.
Also I have my own beard site called The World’s Longest Beards at www.angieandmikewright.btinternet.co.uk/Beards/Home.html
Finally I also have a beard video on Youtube called Yeard a timelapse of the first year of growth of my beard. I am now a week shy of 15 months growth.
