Yep, bizarre.


Hey, from when I was 13 onwards, I had the same hairstyle as Ozzy Ozborne and did the teachers love me? Not much...and the one that hated me the absolute most caught me absconding to the pool hall on my daily exercise [biggrin] - the instructions were something like: "Get that bloody hair cut NOW and shine those shoes and don't come back back until you have!" Etc. I had to go to the first lesson, main class thing instead of snooker for a couple of weeks and nobody knew who I was... [mellow] . Teacher wanted to know how I signed on every morning while he had never seen me before in his life [tongue]

But the thing is, they sure wanted to cut my hair but obviously weren’t allowed to pin me down....or they sure would have.

Weeeeelll, not really sure. Where it probably won't do much physical harm, it can stay in there as a base of aggression.

I live in a tolerant community/society and though some might think my hay is too long, no one really signalizes about it, , , ,
apart from groups of motorized young lame Arabs, who thinks I'm gay and shout it out from their cars.
Have to add it doesn't happen often, but bein' a dude who got slapped in school, (maybe therefor) a little box of anger springs loose
which makes me feel like kneeling down takin' the vehicle out with a bazooka. Zhaaguunngg. . .

Now, that was not a nice post, was it, ,

, , but I was raised on the streets of suburbia.

Btw. for those who don't get all this Murph-talk about Crosby and hippies and Almost Cut My Hair, here's a take from nearly 10 years ago.
They nail it right on and listen to Stills between 2:40 and 55 - thunder and l. .

Yeah, in my younger days I would get the Jesus remarks. In fact, at my local Video rental place (remember VCRs and rentals?), they had me in the computer as "Jesus our Savior". And being mistaken as a woman: Once an old woman tapped me on the shoulder and said "excuse me miss". When I turned around and she saw the beard, she couldn't apologize enough. Also, I was very thin and into cycling (I still am...on both counts). But riding in Lycra with a ponytail, cars and trucks would approach me from behind and the drivers would honk their horns and sometimes call out. When I turned to look at them, their reactions were priceless.


Haha! That last line made me laugh! The thing with the Jesus comments is it's a bit like a form of racism, as in not all white guys with long hair and a beard look the same [smile]

I hear ya, I've heard it all before too. Maybe you should mess with them, "Amen I say to you, since I am the son of God, do you really want to aggravate me? One text message to Dad, and I can mess you up pretty bad" !LOL! (Just kidding Cody,, you know that right)

In these recent instances that I've encountered this, they don't mean it, the apologies come pretty fast.. But on the other hand, I guess I apparently am THAT pretty still!! so maybe I have that goin for me [unsure]


That's a good idea to mess with them [biggrin] I know you are kidding, don't worry I won't get the urge to throw you through a window!

I think the thing that annoys me is a lot of the people I have encountered say it in a demeaning manner and aren't apologetic. I work part time in a hotel and in the evening I get to see a lot of idiots coming back either drunk or just plain stupid and a lot of them are the ones I find particularly unpleasant when they start with the dumb comments.

A lot of people seem to think comments like that are funny for some reason, but I fail to see the humour personally. The one I get a lot is "Hey look, it's Jesus...HAHA!" because I have a beard a fair bit of the time (too lazy to shave most months) plus the long hair I mentioned earlier. I sometimes think the next person who cracks the hilarious 'Jesus' comment I would like to throw through a window [laugh]


My oldest son James had a crew cut for the first three years of college. During his last year he got hard core into surfing (still is). Long hair. Beard.
He came home for Christmas and we all met at my sisterís house in Brooklyn on Christmas Eve. My dad arrived. He saw his grandson but did not recognize him. James said, ďPapi... itís me...Ē. My dad exclaimed... ďJesus... James!Ē And then proceeded to cross himself. Now we call him Jesus James.
He really does look like Jesus. Or maybe The Dude.

It seems like it's all about maintenance, and the lesser of two evils to me... do you deal with the hassle of a haircut every 6 weeks, or deal with the hassle of long hair.

If you look different at all, people are going to stare, comment etc... As long as you are aware of that, and not going to get all riled up - then go for whatever look you want. If your going to do something radical, then complain people are looking... well - you should probably re-evaluate your plan of action.

I had long hair back in the day, short now - regardless, I am freakin' good looking! ;)

That's a stunning performance, all around. But Stills is the star, from replicating the sound of the police siren when Croz sings about getting paranoid seeing a cop car, to that absolutely ripping solo.

Anyone my age who had long hair back in the 60's can really relate to this song. Some of us didn't give in to fear, but trimmed our freak flags for other reasons. Every now and then I run across a photo of me from that time (my sister sent me one a couple of weeks ago, standing out in a field at our farm), and I think, "holy cow, have I moved forward, or backward?"

All I can say is that time flies, and I'm happy to have songs and performances like this to trigger memories, for better or worse.

I have the doughnut look. I was backpacking with a bunch of boy scouts a couple years ago. Sitting around the camp fire one of the kids said he thought I ought to get a tattoo. I said really. He said yea, get one of a guy pushing a lawnmower on the top of head. I guess there is no respect now-a-days!!

Surfing youtube with my nephew, we stumbled on this older video. It reminded me of this thread.

A kick in the *** or a slap now and then...? You've got to be kidding! Try that today and if the kid's parent doesn't return the favor the police will be talking to you - as they should. Come on now.

Spare the rod, spoil the child.
Sort of hard to deny that there will, in any generation, not be some kids that need more than a stern talking to.

I'm not sure there is any way to beat good sense into somebody. It certainly isn't the way you train animals, and it probably doesn't work for kids, either. It seems to be primarily a way for adults to take out their frustrations on kids.

I can remember getting my mouth washed out with soap once, having to cut a switch for my father to hit me with once, and having my mother hit me with a belt once. As I recall, it was more traumatic for them than for me, but that was more than 60 years ago, so I could be wrong.

What I learned was, "don't get caught."


Oh yeah, and my fraternity brothers in college beat on me with a paddle, but that wasn't for anything I did wrong. I left that fraternity shortly thereafter.

Agree, don't go there - you can leave all kinds of marks in the kid, , , , and in yourself.
I once in a while took some slaps over the back-head on the way out of my brothers room when goin' to far and making him cry. That was innocent.

But in school the punishments got more serious.
1 hard chin slap from an old teacherin over whom I cracked a joke while she did a sewing-machine instruction, , , slam !
(It was the late 60's - the first year boys and girls switched wood-work/needle-work and she must have been nervous)
But also chin clams and puffs on the head with a book took place over the years.

It started as early as first class where another in fact rather sweet and experienced female teacher would call the little bandits up to the blackboard,
then making them/us face the class. Standing close behind she grabbed our short hair just in front of the ears on each side and began to lift, saying what would be like :
Do you see the hens of Westham ?
Of course you kept answering no while she lifted you higher till finally breakin' down, "yes, yes, yes".
Haha he, , , wonder if the teachers then were so stupid they couldn't see we gained status that way. It was a mans-test par excellence - for a 6 year old musketeer.

I wouldn't allow any teacher to do that sort of thing to my kid.
Physical punishment is measured by the authority's highly subjective mind and personal state and controlling it is almost impossible.
That was how it was in the so called black schools in the 1950's and further back.
Not a scene to revisit. Then rather some hard physical tasks. Fx hours or days of shovel-soil-wheelbarrow work.
And the master frequently shouting from a speaker : Forward - Forward - Forward


No, for the sake of the 7 silver-salmons, , the last part is hereby drawn back.
