A: Long hair isn't working very well since I have male pattern baldness setting in. I didn't think it really looked very good. So I wanted shorter hair. Fiid suggested (based on experience) that I should go 100% short just to experience the interesting stages between shaved and short. So there you have it.
Q: When did you do it?
A: The night of Tuesday, January 11th.
Q: Night? Didn't you go to a barber?
A: Nope. Kim and I did it at home.
Q: How did you cut it, and how long did it take?
A: With scissors, my beard trimmer, and both of our razors; it took two and a half hours. Very tedious. A barber would have been a better idea but I didn't want to take time off during the day. Mistake.
Q: Are you a neo-Nazi or something?
A: No. Naziism is evil. I just wanted shorter hair.
Q: Is this some kind of joke done with Photoshop? You really didn't cut your hair did you?
A: No joke. Look at it from the back, no way I could fake that. Ask Kim or Fiid or anybody at work...
