Most people don't think I'm balding when I bring it up but I can tell I probably have another good 2-3 years before it gets to Lebron territory.


rogaine is pricey isn't it? ever thought about shaving it all off?

the back of the head is a definite no grow zone once its gone. heard there's very little blood flow there as you age

I don't look bald at all. So it doesn't make sense to shave it off yet.

But once it gets to that point I will for sure shave it bald. I personally think its a dope look, I can grow a full beard so I think I can pull off the look well.


My hairline is receding, but I can grow hair everywhere else. I keep my hair short and won't have a problem coming completely home once it's time. Like you said, a beard helps tremendously. Thankfully I don't have an egghead either.

Bruh, they extended the school closings for another 2 weeks. I'm a substitute teacher and I don't get paid if I don't work. Since it's online most teachers don't take days off. So my regular schools don't need anyone.

So basically I'm making no money this month. This **** sucks.

Do you have enough hours to claim EI? They greatly reduced the requirements.

I don't have enough hours last time I checked. I'll check to see if I qualify for something.

man ya gotta get off the substitute teacher train. i have a couple friends that have been on it for years, one almost 2 decades now.

gotta apply for teaching positions in american schools in different parts of the globe. you might not get the same pension but some of them pay alright. of course the rona changed everything but once everything starts coming back to life they might need teachers again

I've realized you gotta focus on what you can change like being healthy, maintaining physical fitness, having a positive attitude etc. Other aspects like hair, height, skin colour etc is just what it is. Gotta accept it and move on with life. It's pathetic how widespread plastic surgery is in South Korea or skin whitening in India etc..

yea dark skin is loathed in those countries but i hear surgery itself is very cheap. 3rd world medical tourism has blown up quite a bit

funny how in the west its the complete opposite, girls wanna tan spray and have big booties and lips. completely frowned upon on the other side of the globe.

There is a doctor down in Miami doing penis extension for 400 bucks US. Think we could get a group discount?

Not me personally but I hear it’s become prevalent in the West Coast. Particularly the Surrey area.


don't know if you're serious but I've noticed thinning hair is way more prevalent in the Vancouver area than in Toronto. it's noticeable in more women here as well. when I first got here I noticed the shower water left my hair a bit more gunky and loose. gota buy a shower filter.

When I lived in the UK for a couple of years my friends all complained of hair loss who were from places outside of the UK.

Blamed the water and the weather.

UK isn’t so far off from BC weather so I wonder if there’s a correlation.

if its pattern balding then its genetic. like when your hair keeps going further back or the top of is completely gone with your sides left.

if its thinning all over then there might be an underlying health issue or vitamin/mineral deficiency

UK is probably due to a **** lifestyle and weather

My friends I met there who were from Canada were the ones complaining is what I meant.

I think the water is actually quite different but holistically it’s definitely genetic.

I think most people including many women are genetically prone to thinning hair as they age. The water or whatever it is in Vancouver/UK just accelerates it. It can be devastating for some and make you want to go home lol

Yeah I'm beginning to see a couple of thinning spots in my hair now. Might be a couple years away from being really noticeable.

I'll probably just end up going full bald with a beard once the time comes lol.
