Good point, Rob. It struck me they were just dirty, but I brought up the .PDF version and blew it up on screen, and you're right. I guess that's a lib thing.
Yes, just like armpits, but that seems to be more of a European thing.
My own razor has died but is still under guarantee; that happened last week and the intentional beard is getting competition from the other facial bits. I think I'll wait until the razor either comes back or I am given a replacement. I don't trust myself with open blades near my throat so why take a chance?
I'll ignore the first few good reasons - don't bother sending them along.
