The Strongest Beard

beardsculpture.jpgThink your beard is awesome? Go beard-to-beard with Antanas Kontrimas and try lifting a person with it.

"The Lithuanian has been lengthening and strengthening his facial hair for over 30 years, which explains how it recently lifted a 140-pound female model nearly a foot off the ground for five seconds--a new Guinness World Record for "The Heaviest Weight Lifted by a Beard"

Beard Shearing in Amish Country

amishcountry.jpg

Five men have been charged in the shearing of an elderly Amish man's beard, with an interesting twist:

"Five members from a sect that was excommunicated by the Amish community were arraigned this morning on charges of kidnapping and aggravated burglary after authorities said they ganged up on an Amish man and chopped off his beard in Ohio, an assault that's considered sacrilegious for the group."

Never mind sacrilegious, it's also just plain wrong...

But it gets even better. Three of the men involved have the last name Mullet. I think it might be safe to say that's the first time that a mullet ever sheared a beard.

Beard Painting

grahamclark.jpgFrom the 'bizarre things you can do with your facial hair' story files:

"Like an elephant, Graham Clark never forgets. So when fellow standup comics Ivan Decker and Charlie Demers teased him about his ever-growing facial hair, saying he should paint with it the way an elephant paints with his trunk, Clark laughed--but socked the idea away."

Why Grow a Beard?

2411838372_4c951ed18e_m.jpgFrom Business Insider:

"When you always have a beard with short hair no one really says anything. Most people that I meet know me as a guy with a beard and life goes on as it would with any other person. But growing a full, big beard is different. You've got to put away the razors and scissors and step into something new. That's what I love about it - that it's different, it's change, and most people won't even try it in their life."

Beards and Credibility

beardandparrot.jpgHow do you build trust? Maybe with some fashionable facial hair:

"The way you gain people's trust is to earn it over time by repeatedly proving that you deserve it. That, or grow a beard.

A recent study in the Journal of Marketing Communications found that men with beards were deemed more credible than those who were clean-shaven."

The Beard as a Badge of Piety

hatandbeard.jpg
What's the connection between a hairy face and a man's faith?

"Go ahead, picture a religious Jew.

Now picture a Muslim cleric.

Now an Amish farmer.

What do they have in common? Beards. And not neatly trimmed beards, but, in the popular stereotype, long, unruly beards, which connote piety, spiritual intensity and a life so hard at study that there is no time for a shave. The scholar, the mystic, the terrorist, the holy man -- they all have beards."

Postmillennial He-Man Beard Epoch

curlybeardman.jpgFrom the New York Times:

"Four years ago, I grew the first full beard of my adult life on a whim. I was 41, and it was neither a fashion statement nor a midlife crisis, but it came at a fortuitous time: the style world just happened to be entering the Postmillennial He-Man Beard Epoch.

Utahns: Share Your Facial Hair Pics

yourbestbeardpics.jpgIf you live in Utah and you're sporting some fine facial hair, then you may want to think about sending your pics in to the Standard-Examiner:

It's the time of year when we honor Utah's pioneer roots -- and if there's one thing our forefathers did well, it's facial hair. These men sported it all, from small soul patches and goatees to fluffy Santa beards.

We think modern Top of Utahns could give the old guys a run for their money -- so we want to see the best beards in Utah today.
