    Right brothers, I have a confession to make...


    I'm giving the frys a miss, cutting down on the rubbish that i eat, cutting out the fizzy drinks, sweets, all the fattening stuff.
    I'm cycling to work now, cycling to college, all in the name to lose this dreaded beer belly.


    I have an Issue.

    I've been Granted a Head of Jet black hair, anyone who knows me will know how black it is,

    heres the Problem.
    over the last year or so, i've been getting grey hairs, first a few, one at front, 2-3 near the back, i thought, "ah i'll just pluck them out"

    now i'm getting worried. They are getting orginised. they are getting into formation,

    i woke up this morning and proceded to pull 11 grey hairs out of my head.

    should i give up? go the route of the bald eagle and shave all the hair off? let nature take its course and relise that i'm turing into my father ( full head of grey hair by 25)? i dont want to start dyeing it, i couldnt face the ordeal of dying my hair.

    You are in the wrong forums agent smith :eek:
    I think you meant to select PI :rolleyes:

    Let it be. Don't go down that road of worrying about it. Everyone has a certain amount of vanity, but some people go over the top.

    Some of the wimmen folk say its quite distinguished.

    shave your head, take a year off and go travelling. start a new life.

    Wheras getting in shape might be considered noble and manly,Agent Smith,fretting over a few grey hairs,and worse PLUCKING them,is verging on the womanly if you dont mind me saying.

    The only grey hair you need worry about is when you have tufts of it hanging out of your nose. And then, its only because it leaves brush marks in a guinness head / fresh cream bun.

    as a founding member of this forum i plead to be heard out....

    Teh wimmin have been commenting on the grey hairs, now if we cant keep them even slightly happy, then who's going to get me a cool beer when the rugbys on?


    are you?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 6,939 ✭✭✭mikedragon32


    Referring to your gut as "Dreaded" is doing you no favours, brother Agent.

    If you're worried about who will get beers when the rugby is on, you could always meet me and Eoin_S for beers next time there's a decent match on telly. That way there'll be a nice attractive lounge girl to bring your beers (and ours).

    i woke up this morning and proceded to pull 11 grey hairs out of my head.

    Just so you know Joe, if you pull one out, 7 grow back in it's place.
    7 x 11 = 77 grey newbies by the end of the month.

    My PI advice would be:
    Get over it ya big girls blouse

    MMM the problem is your getting stressed from cycling and your diet is lacking a certain amount of fats.

    Stop cycling and drink fiizy drink and sweets and rubbish and they grey hair will go away. if not make sure you wear a lumionus jacket because i'll bleeding knock ya down

    ...i dont want to start dyeing it, i couldnt face the ordeal of dying my hair
    "agent smith the man" becomes "agent smith the big girl's blouse" :(


    Maybe wear silver eye-shadow & nail varnish to compliment it? ;)

    Grey hairs at a young age are a reflection of lifestyle, means your body is starving for what it needs(nutrition) so it is neglecting the cells that aren't essential that is the cells at the base of your hair that produce pigment. Things like processed sugar/flour, alcohol all devastate your body and speed the greying of hair.
    Don't dye your hair.

    "The wimmins" surely?
    Respect for our sisters please.
    Who else would bring us the beers, chips & dips?

    you better start talking football and beer or, in the wise words of Choper Reid, harden the fcuk up!

    people do know that this was a piss take?

    i've commented on irc many times about how i'm dealing with teh grey hair


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,178 ✭✭✭Fozzie Bear


    Ha! Tis when the little feckers start appearing on your chest, back and ball sack that you need worry Brother Smith. While your rapidly shrinking gut will hide the ones on your sack for the time being and it's not possible to see your back the chest and head are the problem ones. I fretted for a while but then said feck it, just go with the flow. Herself sometimes finds entertainment in plucking the grey ones off my chest but the sheer quantity of them and their ability to replenish over night always defeat her.

    My advise, just grow grey as disgracefully as possible. You don't really want to go down the whole "Just for men" route. Too much like effort!!

    Do as I do. If anyone mentions gray hairs, tell'em they should see the ones...(pause for effect) IN MY PANTS! :D

    Note : The condition of your happy trail has no impact on the above statement. It's funny because it's probably not true. :)

    But Brother Agent, not all the brethren use IRC, myself included, so we were unaware that you were dealing it. However, can you also confirm that the exercise and dieting *spit* were also a piss take? mention of these worry the brethren far more than a few grey hairs.


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,769 ✭✭✭✭The Hill Billy


    Christ! I've grown a few grey hairs reading this thread & worrying about the future of some of the brotherhood & their apparent fretting over hair-colour.

    Crisis over!

    Congrats on all this. Soon you will leave BGRH behind and be able to post where mature men post: AH. :D

  • Subscribers Posts: 32,850 ✭✭✭✭5starpool


    I am disgusted I have only just discovered this forum now, especially since I could be a poster boy judging by the name. I am sure there are plenty here who would like to have a problem of grey hair actually growing :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,231 ✭✭✭✭Sparky


    I wouldnt worry about the greys.

    They have Just for men ya know.

    1.It takes more to feed a muscle than to feed a gut

    2.The commissioner would kick your ass any day

    3."harden the fcuk up!" Ha! I'm like steel compared to you guys!
