 Great Moustaches from MLB

 From Bleacher Report:

"While many players have succeeded in leaving their mark and cementing their legendary status, still others made their mark on the game in other ways--through their appearance.

In terms of facial hair, there have been many styles sported by ballplayers through the generations, earning nicknames for some, and ridicule for others."

 Pacific Shaving Company Turns Budweiser Campaign on its Head

Inspired by Budweiser's "Grow One, Save a Million" campaign which asks guys to save water by not shaving, Pacific Shaving Company is asking beer drinkers across America to help save an additional one million gallons of water by drinking two fewer beers a week between now and World Environment Day (June 5).

In 2009, the leading global brewer sold more than 10 billion gallons of beer, of which water is a key ingredient. Pacific Shaving's just-formed Clean Cut, Clean Living initiative encourages consumers to get involved and save roughly 24 ounces of water each week by simply having a couple less cold ones.

Pacific Shaving understands that most of us need to shave every day. But the happy hour beer is optional. Consumers can visit Pacific Shaving's Facebook page to make the pledge and share the program with Facebook friends. For every pledge made between now and June 5th, the company will plant a tree. So let's each do our part to minimize the approximately 27 million gallons of water used each day in the brewing process by passing on the casual beer between now and World Environment Day.

When it comes to shaving, you can also do your part in conserving water by shaving at the sink and turning the faucet off. When it comes to the environment, Pacific Shaving Company is proud of the fact its line of natural, safe and eco-friendly shaving essentials is manufactured in the USA and uses minimal packaging. The company also works with Trees for the Future to plant a tree for every purchase.

 Turkish Politics, by the Moustache

 Does your moustache broadcast your political affiliation? Evidently it does in Turkey:

"Leaning back into a maroon barber's chair, its dark leather cracked with age, Onur Karadogan flips through a dusty catalogue of moustache styles.

"An Islamist will ask for this one," he said, pointing to a neatly trimmed, almond-shaped example, bringing two fingers together to illustrate the two millimeters of space that the Koran deems must exist between the end of the upper lip and the beginning of the whiskers.

"These ones," he said, upon reaching a brittle page covered in images of dark-haired men with thick, walrus-style moustache of the Marx variety, "are more for the leftists."

In his 16 years of experience as a barber, Karadogan has become an expert at shaping these bushy declarations. Men don't wear their politics on their sleeve here, they write them across their upper lip."

I wonder what facial hair political classifications we could make here in the U.S.?

 Stray Hairs = Stray Thoughts

 There's science, and then there's weird science.

"There is a similarity between unwanted intrusive thoughts and unwanted intrusive facial hair.

Recent research from the All-Bulgaria Agricultural College (Organic) in the former Wandsworth, proves conclusively that the two phenomena are not merely similar, but fundamentally interconnected. And interestingly, the causal sequence can operate in either direction.

An increase in hair production on the end of one's nose or ear can produce an automatic negative cognition. Equally, a negative automatic thought can produce an immediate increase in hair growth on the outer surface at the tip of the nose or on the pinna."

 Review: Kid Glove Hydrating Gel Aftershave

One of my pet peeves about shaving products is the number of choices that are overly oily. I don't care to have anything greasy feeling on my skin right after I shower and shave, so I'm always on the lookout for oil-free options.
