No Shave November

If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?

Men (and women) all around the globe are putting down their razors for one month to participate in No Shave November!

For those of you who aren’t aware, every November for God knows how long, men opt to not shave at all for an entire month to raise awareness for prostate cancer. No Shave November is believed to be in response to the pink ribbons worn for breast cancer awareness month. This monthly adventure of hairy, messy beard loving proportions started out as Movember where men (and sometimes women) would try to grow the best moustache by shaving only the rest of their face.

I usually don’t even notice the hair on my face growing – it seems to appear so quickly but now I have decided to chronicle the growth everyday in pictures until December 1st. A virtual way of slowing down it down and examining for an interesting pattern. By “slowing down” the process, I bet I could figure out how many days on average it takes the first hairs on my face to sprout and when a decent mug starts appearing. There IS a science to this people!
