    Their is surely some body hair pairing for the mullet.

    Open shirt with the chest hair. I have little chest hair, but that is easily sorted.

    Everywhere else, everywhere else smooth as glass- sets the majesty of the mullet off best.
    Speedos at all times for best effect, naturally.

    I went through the winter hiding my lockdown hair (last cut in July) under a beanie. Now with the warmer weather that feels stupid.

    So I've been going out walking with it. I've grown a beard which compliments my shaggy look nicely.
    I might look like a tramp or derranged but who gives a fuck.
    Earlier, I could feel the wind in my hair!!

    Me too, in a weird way, I came across my old Zippo earlier today as have been decorating, the only smoking item I dared to keep after giving up. Upon trying to light it for old times sake it was apparent it was (obviously) out of gas but also the flint was worn down, I checked and there were a few spares stashed inside, had a little chuckle to myself, I vowed I would spend a few months smoking before I pop it! Funnily enough I don't miss the skanky taste or breath or stink it in any way shape or form nowadays, I know I'll have to go all Chandler to get through the first couple!

    Same. When I smoked, I was thin.

    Oddly I don't miss it at all. Especially not when travelling, when having a massive addition was a fucking nightmare.

    * barely makes it to flight *

    I quit in December 2019. I am addicted to nicotine lozenges, so I cannot say I have fully quit. But I imagine that quitting the smoking part is better for me than having not stopped at all.

    Haha, I was like that as well.

    I'm still amazed how easily I've managed to quit in the end. I used gum for about three months to overcome the physical addiction but once I had made up my mind it was already over.
    Not smoked ever since and I haven't felt like it even once either.

    My new nose hair trimmer is slightly curved, like Count Dooku's lightsaber.

    It makes me happy.

    You're probably smiling due to shaving away at the pre-frontal cortex.

    I have a job interview on Zoom coming up. What device should I use? Laptop or phone? My laptop is ancient, the webcam currently doesn't work because the drivers aren't installed and it's also probably very low resolution. I have a desktop with a webcam but I don't know about having the webcam offset from the screen so if I look at the webcam, I won't be able to see the people interviewing me. My phone is relatively new and has a good camera unlike the other two options but it does seem unprofessional. I could buy a new laptop I suppose.

    I found laptop and tablet cameras a pain for interviews so I dug out an old webcam and built a ramshackle tripod from a book and cardboard .

    I positioned it at the optimal angle.






    At my crouch.

    @MrFlay If your desktop has a webcam I presume it's an external one (I'm not aware of screens with built in ones other than on laptops) so why can't you just put it just under or on top of your screen? Basically the same as a laptop.

    I've done several interviews using my smart phone and despite having a shitty camera and being pretty small it worked out okay, even the sound was relatively decent.
    Just make sure you have somewhere to put it where it's a good angle and can't start to slip halfway through the interview.

    That's only good for talk-only interviews though. Forget about showing/viewing anything on it (presentations, screen sharing, ...), you absolutely need a big screen for that. Plus a smart phone isn't equipped with 90% of the software required to show anything other than your face anyway.

    You can also configure a smart phone to act like a webcam on a computer via USB. That kind of brings me back to my initial question though.

    Try to have the camera so it doesn’t point up your nose, do your best to have it so you’re looking at the camera.

    Then get naked.

    I think I'm going to have to test the various options. Some good ideas here. A phone stand sounds sensible . I will test the 15 year old external webcam and see how it looks. I'm well aware of the difficulty of angling a phone so the camera doesn't point up your nose. Fortunately it's a talk only interview. No presentation required. It's also with the organisation I already work for so that should make it easier. I will most likely be fully dressed. I may not wear shoes.

    I know we're supposed to have snakes in the wild in this country, but I've never seen one.

    It's all lies.
