Statistically, the beard grows 1.25cm per month. Some of us must have stunted growth in our beard hair.
I have always wanted a bit of stubble, not much, just enough to make me look like I just stepped from the bush and seeking a place in civilisation. Unfortunately, the universe did not think it a good idea to bestow upon me this precious gift. I have had to contend with scanty facial hair, which is not funny when all your supposed friends stroke their thick facial manes. Even less funny when all the girls show a bias for them (or their beards, I dare say).
