The Twilight of Beards? Study Says Beards are Out, Stubble is In

We have a beard and mustache club, residents who participate in national beard competitions, and there was a S.F. man photographed eating ramen out of his beard -- it's safe to say, San Francisco loves beards. But a study shared on the BBC today says the days of the beard may be numbered.

In the study, 1,453 women participants and 213 men participants were shown four photos of men -- ranging clean shaven to full beard -- and the results say that beards are so yesterday. It looks like 2014 is the year of heavy stubble.

Fiery Proposal on Ocean Beach

Categories: Quick Take

We're not sure how the person pulled off this proposal; how do you explain a car full of lighter fluid to a significant other?

Did he/she drop to one knee and say, "My love for you burns like an eternal flame."? We kind of hope so.

And while we cringe any time someone substitute "U" for "you," we will give this proposal, first spotted on Reddit, points for being original.

We can only imagine the pyrotechnics at this wedding.

Wendy MacNaughton's Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City in its Own Words Captures the Authentic S.F.

Depicting the "typical" San Franciscan,

Every once in awhile, there comes a beautiful work of art that gives rightful tribute to the place we call home.

meanwhile-sfESDIT.jpg

Whether it comes in the form of song, literature, or art, these tributes depict more than the Golden Gate Bridge or the Transamerica Pyramid -- they depict San Francisco's character, energy, and diversity.

And Wendy MacNaughton's new work, Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City in Its Own Words, is a great addition to this list. Available as of today, this illustrated work of our City from Chronicle Books, depicts various aspects of life in S.F. -- the Civic Center Farmers market, the swimmers of the Dolphin Club, the staff of the San Francisco Library's main branch, and Muni drivers.

But instead of simply sketching these places and persons, she uses their own words to fuel the text. Our personal favorites include the Muni driver who gets paid about $30 an hour: "A dollar to drive and $29 to deal with people," and the security guard at the main library who has seen it all.
