I don't give a shit about fashion, but I've been wanting a buzz cut for a while now. But I hitchhike for most of my transportation so I feel like that would cut down on the people picking me up - I'd look scarier. Right now I've a bowl cut - it's ugly looking but very practical. How much do y'all think a buzz would affect hitching?

i think i get what you're saying

i'm a 'fucking' white male who, while having a great volume of facial hair, started balding up top very young and so as i grow my hair way out in the...rear half of my scalp you could say.. it doesn't look wonderful - especially after swimming

and so i generally prefer short, very short hair because it 'looks' better and is less maintenance - i like the feel of a bald head as well - although because it causes me to appear as a skinhead, i do get judgement cast my way which is something i don't want to engage in because internally i don't resemble that

as a result of this judgement i find it's in the best case to have some hair AND wear a hat

so you could get it cut all the way down AND wear a hat too and it'd probably be the same difference

happy travels!

The sides and back of my head are shaved...I think it has no effect on the rides I get. Also, I am female bodied so results may vary.

No effect at all. Considering that the people that pick you up, are alternative in their own right. Most who will pick up hitchikers, pick up those regardless of style.
I've been hitching for a while, the whole time- I've had hairstyles from: dreadlocks, to blue mowhawks. Never let shit like a haircut slow you down.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I've made some layout adjustments to featured content threads. They should look much prettier on mobile devices, although I'm still working on how the main featured page displays on those devices...
Due to a software bug, I've had to disable the ability for users to delete their accounts until a fix is released (hopefully no more than a few days).
You ever look back and kind of wonder even if you wanted to try to fix things... How you even begin to apologise for Fucking up someone's life??
