So, as I get older, I notice that once in awhile, I find a hair growin someplace odd like on my ear that is like an inch long. I know it was not there last night when I went to bed. THe thing must be growing like hell to get that long overnight. WTF?? Is this just me, or does it happen to all of us as we get older?

happens to me, and i'm only 18...

not on my ears though, that's kinda weird....

Yep.

You're getting old. Just wait til your eyebrows start sprouting hairs an inch and a half long and tough enough to need wire cutters to get rid of them.

Why oh why did I click on this thread.

I think BenDover just mentioned this in a thread.

I get the same thing too...I mean I must look in the mirror 10 times every day while brushing my teeth, shaving, and washing my hands...and then one day I look there's a fine white hair growing on my ear lobe.

It's freaky. I'm going to have to do a thorough inspection every morning to keep these things in check.

I know your pain:
Why is beard hair starting to grow out of my eyebrow?

I have a clear one that grows right out of the middle of my forehead . . . first time I saw it it was almost an inch long. Pull it and it doesn't come back for a year or two. Got another one that grows out of my right eyebrow and was the better part of two inches before I found it the first time.

Then there was the one I felt tickling my nose . . . got a hold of it and yanked . . . thought I was going to pull my friggin' brain out. Thing was as thick around as a cats whisker and almost 1-1/2 inches long FROM INSIDE MY NOSE!!! That really hurt.

I'm 18 and I have one on my neck. Suddenly there will be this thin inch long hair!

My dad gets those, and he doesn't trim them, they get to be like 2 inches. I taunt him without mercy. Now I'm getting them too. Karma's a bitch. I trim them.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 6:47:30 PM EDT
I thought I was alone!!!

Right near the bone on my wrists... both wrists... exact spot on both wrists, you know, just opposite. Big, coarse random hairs that grow to about a half inch before I notice they're back.

It just ain't right.

WOW! I didn't need that much information.

My ears grow enough fine little hairs that I feel like a hobbit sometimes. I have also discovered that the scissors on my Swiss Army knife trim eyebrow and ear hairs very well.

Turning 40 started the hair growth. I can't wait to see what happens in a couple of years when I turn 50.

Yup, got an ocassional one from my ear, and nose hairs have gone into overdrive since turning 31....

Does this explain why some folks put a gun to their head? That's one helluva way to get rid of ear hair.

O GOD.... IT GETS WORSE?! I'm 21, and I'd be hard pressed to draw a 6" line anywhere on my body without running into a hair. This morning I pulled a hair growing from the bottom of my feet.

I never had a hair grow on the bottom of my feet. You might want to get that checked.
Do you have any growing from the palm of your hand?

Those little ear and nose hair trimmers really do come in handy after you hit 40. Those dang hairs grow like weeds.

I'm 27 and not a very hairy person, but do have a bit of chest hair. None on the back, but will notice a 1 inch solitary hair on my back shoulders every few months. Like just out of nowhere they appear. Also I've had lots more long ear hairs, and an eyebrow hair that was a good 3/4 of an inch. WTF? I lose the hair on top of my head and now it's popping up in other parts of my body. I even have hairs that grow out of the tip of my nose, maybe just a few millimeters long, but I got to pluck them.

I get both the thicker, lighter eyebrow hair, and the stray nasty one out of my ear. Just the one ear though...strange. Vigilance is called for.

I know an older guy that has a white hair about one half inch long, growing out of the end of his nose. It sticks straight out and I don't know how he misses it. He must be legally blind. Its kind of gross looking.

if you roll said hairs between your fingers after removal, you'll often find that they're multiple hairs that have fused together.

I pulled a hair out of my chin once that was very much like a bit of fingernail.

I remember the time I was using Extra Strength Rogaine for a while.
I would rub it into my scalp without gloves, then one day I was at work
a girl noticed I had lots of hair growing on the palms of my hands.

Unfortunately I've inherited nosehairs from my granddad.

I tried on of those "microtouch" shavers (as seen on tv) and they do a good job of ripping said nosehairs clean out. That or it cuts the septum (piece of meat between the nostrils).

any good ideas on suitable nosehair trimmers?

On the subject of nose hairs, I have heard what I believe to be an urban legend, but may be true. Basically, if one pulls nose hairs, they run the risk of getting a potentially life-threatening infection (due to proximity to brain) in their nostril. Anyone able to shed more light?

BTW
I'm still a plucker
