As for appearance things aren't the same now as when us old guys were kids. When I was a kid only gang bangers, ex cons, and people in the military had tattoos. As far as appearance I could tolerate middle of the road by today's standards, I would say no to things that severely alter a person's appearance.

    I can give him pointers on head shaving, without the right razors, and shaving gel it is easy to turn yourself into a bloody mess.

    No. One of the reasons he gave for needing a job was "I have a kid on the way".

    He probably has an outside shower, something like they have at the beach, probably walks outside every hour or so to shower the crap off.

    6'1" on a good day (almost as wide). Pretty sure I'm not bullet proof. Not interested in scientific testing.
    But, still posting because I really DGAF what anybody says, shit rolls right off my back
    I do what I can with what I got.
    I'm just here for the entertainment like the rest of us at this point

    In one of the other threads (I think where I was asking about HMCs) I mentioned that a pool shower was one of the options I was considering to get me a crapper out here.

    Uhh, no. I'm only on 1-1/4 acre. The pool is already there. We built it in 2018. It is quite small. Nice, but small.

    Hot tub when we bot the place but so many trees it was a perpetual composter.

    Wife goes over to her sister's high-rise condo, genuine olympic rated, swims a kilometer twice a week. 30 years married, November coming, and she is still only 23 but could ass for 30-35. Shi Huang Di sure must have had his pick of beauties for it to track over 2,000 year.

    Default Looks... to be or not to be

    I'm curious on looks too. I think Teach said his mohwak is basically not real, like a wig if I remember... anywho..

    Often wondered if when I was bigger (used to be about 270lbs 5'11", now 180'ish... thanks to diverticulitus for my girlish figure LoL), if possibly some potential employers might have seen me as a liability? Can't move fast, health conditions, etc..?

    May never know as I got this job pre-health issues and such...

    I am 6'1" if I stand perfectly straight on my good leg (right leg is 1-3/4" shorter than left). And, 335lbs today. My right leg is Fucked!
    I bet money (lots of it) I could work circles around a damn big percentage of just about anybody applying for a production CNC operator position.
    I also bet damn good money, I would be one of the last guys picked for the position. Never, and I mean NEVER, judge a book by its cover!

    Forever-ago, I knew a veteran with a current "Master's Ticket". Not sure I have the details right, I was one of them "damned beavers" - a gravel agitating Combat Engineer meself.. but if I understand it, a ships Master (or Sea Captain) had to demonstrate, among more than a few other skills, the ability to rescue a disabled crewmate by carrying ISTR a 180 lb man up a ladder.

    The guy did that, no problem. Impressive enough. All the more so for a man who had but one arm.

    Buuuutttttt......remember that's YOUR drive because it is YOUR shop.
    I was the same for 12 years - 12/14 or more hr days with 6>5pm on a Sat and a Sunday morning thrown in too.
    When I sold up and worked for my best customer on a turnkey at their place, an 8 hr day seemed l o n g !!!

    I call that an unfair advantage over others with 2 equally long legs...

    on a serious note, reduce the amount of carbs in the diet, especially sugar, avoid bread, potatoes and other starchy vegetables and watch your weight drop significantly, body tends to accumulate a lot of excess water on high carb diets, pick up a 10 gallon bucket with water and walk up/down the stairs, that is how much extra work and strain you put on your body and joints for no reason at all
