    WOW. I would just break, "the law."


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: How much red tape is involved to grow a beard

    In a beard related question, I have an interview later this week was curious what the proper beard etiquite is. I have had a beard since I was 18, and never go completley clean shaven. It's not a big girzzly beard or anything, I kept it trimmed and all uniform length. Is this a huge no-no to go to an interview with a beard? I look like a small child without it.

    You think growing a beard at BYU is rough, try being gay at BYU.

    As long as it's well-kept and not distracting, I think you should be fine. I've heard it can actually be an advantage if any of your interviewers have facial hair. Beards tend to make you look a bit older and more authoritative.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I gave a seminar 2 weeks ago with my beard. Just make sure its trimmed. It can make you look very intimidating if you do it right.

    I've had a beard since I was 18 too. I've done 10-15 interviews and have never had a single problem. Like others have stated if it's kept up nice and trimmed I think it can be an advantage in most situations.

    You know it is bad when Michael W. Smith is specifically mentioned as being forbidden.

    With as anal and restrictive as that school seems to be it just seems like cosmic justice that they have to be abbreviated as BJ University.

    Yet they allow you to bring a weapon, as long as you turn it in for storage.
