I was thinking of that song Andy Samberg and Will Ferrel did on the MTV Movie Awards called 'Cool Guys Don't Look at Explosions'...and found a decent looking picture I took earlier and made this.
I always find it funny that that's how it is in movies, explosions are like nothing to the hero or bad guy. If you've been around a real explosion, you'd probably know how deafening or powerful it is. The movie 'The Other Guys' actually satirized it, and I thought that was funny.
And yes, I shaved. I meant to only trim a bit of it until I accidentally shaved a line of it off leading to my neck. I feel so weird. I haven't been facial-hairless since day...80?
