Grow beard when you get old

Postby johnwang on Sun May 03, 2020 3:35 pm

I grew beard when I was young so I could looked old. When I get older, I like to shave my face clean so I can look young.

Why does someone want to grow beard in his old age? Your thought?

don't have any idea about the motivation to do that


i thought there was a chinese tradition of not growing facial hair while your parents were alive
(maybe so the parents don't feel really old...)

Direkt related to martial arts, can a big bushy beard act as chin protective against a punch? But for sure such a big beard could be grabbed and so to ones disadvantage in close combat situations?

Beard or not, should it be about looks rather that of practicality ?

21. You will look 12 if you shave. Don’t take the risk

You do want to look 12 when you are 80.

When I

- was young, I don't mind to train Taiji slow because I knew I could move fast.
- am older, I like to train Taiji fast, because fast = young, healthy, strong, ...

Am I the only person who think this way?

LIke to go fast when needed! otherwise take your time to explode when necessary i.e. issue force ;D ;D
It may depend on the social milieu. Wu Tunan was a clever bastard as I said previously but he needed to play a part of consciousness that never died so he got to manipulate the milieu along with his social status.

Beards are popular now but that wasn't always so. I heard that men grew beards after 50 because they no longer cared what their wives thought of their appearance. And a lot of men hate to shave.

Come on, 12!? Just trim it, or keep a stubble and you’ll look 21, that’s still young.....(maybe the writer of that list switched the numbers. It should be - look as21, and be in point 12) 8-)

However looking as a twelve year old and manhandling some burly bearded rough’n tough guy could look cool.

Wu Tunan’s motivation was pretty clear — faking his age :)

Fake his age to be older? Why?

Last time I had my hair cut, the girl asked me how old I was. I told her I was 20 years young than my true age. She believed me. It makes me feel great for many days.
