So I am going for the shaggy look right now.. I am always being told that I look like some actor bs.. long hair I get told I look like shaggy from scooby doo, but I always been told I look like Mattew Lillard regardless.. with short hair when I was younger I constantly got Jim Carrey, when I was fat a couple friends joked around and said I look like Farvo..lol.
But with short hair and a goatee I’ve been told I look like Mcsteamy from gregs anonymity. And Angel from Buffy and Bones.. And recently I’ve been told I look Fergies husband..
I think about 75% has to do with my height and hair color..
The reason I am asking is because I am working on my pick up game and if I ask my real life friends it is just weird..lol.. So I am asking yall fucks.
I ask girls but they say I look good as is, but I am not trying to look good, I am trying to look my best..
Personally I like my hair bald faded with a long goatee, I look mean and I look military, but girls say that this is their least favorite version of me.. probably because I look mean.
So Nellie said I looked best with long hair and no facial hair, but that sounds way to feminine for me.. She hated facial hair.
I think facial hair makes you look more manly and I ain’t try to be no punk..
So with this overly long, half retarded/drunken post let me know what you think,,
This is more for the females, but I’ll you dudes troll on me to, because that is what we do here in TNT
Short hair, shaved and at 245ish
Long hair, with longer goatee and at 235ish
Short hair and short goatee
So girls, tell me what you think..
I am by no means saying that I think I am some stud or bull shit,, just looking for a honest opinion from friends

Researchers have known for some time that long-term cannabis use increases the risk of psychosis, and recent evidence suggests that alterations in brain function and structure may be responsible for this greater vulnerability. However, this new research, published in Psychological Medicine, is the first to examine the effect of cannabis potency on brain structure.
Exploring the impact of cannabis potency is particularly important since today’s high potency ‘skunk-like’products have been shown to contain higher proportions of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than they did around a decade ago. In experimental studies THC has been shown to induce psychotic symptoms and ‘skunk-like’ products high in THC are now thought to be the most commonly used form of cannabis in the UK.
Dr Paola Dazzan, Reader in Neurobiology of Psychosis from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London, and senior researcher on the study, said: ‘We found that frequent use of high potency cannabis significantly affects the structure of white matter fibres in the brain, whether you have psychosis or not.
‘This reflects a sliding scale where the more cannabis you smoke and the higher the potency, the worse the damage will be.’
Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technique, was used to examine white matter in the brains of 56 patients who had reported a first episode of psychosis at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), as well as 43 healthy participants from the local community.
The researchers specifically examined the corpus callosum, the largest white matter structure in the brain, which is responsible for communication between the left and right hemispheres. White matter consists of large bundles of nerve cell projections (called axons), which connect different regions of the brain, enabling communication between them.
The corpus callosum is particularly rich in cannabinoid receptors, on which the THC content of cannabis acts.
The study found that frequent use of high potency cannabis was linked to significantly higher mean-diffusivity (MD), a marker of damage in white matter structure.
Dr Tiago Reis Marques, a senior research fellow from the IoPPN at King’s College London, said: ‘This white matter damage was significantly greater among heavy users of high potency cannabis than in occasional or low potency users, and was also independent of the presence of a psychotic disorder.’
Dr Dazzan added: ‘There is an urgent need to educate health professionals, the public and policymakers about the risks involved with cannabis use.
‘As we have suggested previously, when assessing cannabis use it is extremely important to gather information on how often and what type of cannabis is being used. These details can help quantify the risk of mental health problems and increase awareness on the type of damage these substances can do to the brain.’
