I need respondents with or without beards (or beers) to get a good data set.

LMAO. I've fixed it now. Although the beers or no beers is also important.

This should be interesting. You should have asked for age information, I see more and more old guys with beards. These are people who wouldn't have dreamed of growing a beard when they were younger.

I was more concerned with the style of beards and the quantity for now. Although the seti@home beard may need more investigation.

I would like the ladies to also reply (honestly, its anonymous) so I can get a true idea of the beard haves and the beard havenots. I want to know if there is a correlation between crunching seti and wearing a beard.

Perhaps I should have a question on beard length and RAC to see if there is a correlation there too.

Ah yes, but you see, there will be a flaw in the results. Because the important question is missed off. "Do you have your beard all year round, or do you shave it off at certain times?" I'm thinking of our Eric here of course.

Picks up spanner and lobs it .....

Now that's a good point Chris, and I don't mean that as in "pointy beards".

Most people think it strange that I shave mine off at the beginning of each winter.

run Bill, run

Beard carriers are cool: Gandalf is amongst it, not to say about Mendeleev, Grigory Perelman, and even Onotole Wasserman, who is even more cool than famous Norris...:D

I've filled out my survey, too.

For a little over half my Navy career, we could wear beards, but had to keep them trimmed so we could get a seal on an oxygen or air-fed mask. We lost the priviledge in 1984, after a couple of very-public incidents of non-compliance with the regs, and the CNO said "No More". Stopped shaving the day after I left active duty, but still keep it trimmed per the old regs (but not my hair). I just look better, even though my beard had gone from reddish brown to Gandalf grey. And only shaving my neck really shortens my morning bathroom routine.

Thanks everyone. Hopefully we can get more responses.

So far we have:

Yes, I have a a beard: 58.06%
No, I do not have a beard: 41.94%


So the beardies are outnumbering the non-beardies. That may be a problem in the way I presented the survey that meant it attracted the proud beard wearers better than the non-beard wearers...or it could be as I suspected that people who crunch seti are more like to have a beard.

So I do appreciate the female responses. Perhaps I should have collected the gender data, but I didn't want to discourage the female beard wearers.
