My hair started greying in my 30s. Worse, tho, my dislike of shaving more than every four or five days combined with a whole lot of grey and white in my beard means that by day four I look like I should be carrying a bindle and scouting for railroad dicks. I easily become five to ten years younger on days when I shave.
I've had people tell me I look older when I shave.

Scouts are necessary, but he should pay more attention to the railroad dick stats.

I was born a Joe Morgan hobo, I'll die a Joe Morgan hobo—incoherent and convinced Billy Beane wrote that book about hobo code.

The important mission is his search for that railroad dick.

Less a mission than a calling.

I believe the hobo symbol is two x's over a kitty cat. (Two x's under a kitty cat means the lady there will give you free pie if you sing her a hobo song.)

Extended interview with Norm Macdonald: http://www.vulture.com/2017/06/norm-mac ... p-snl.html

I disagree with a lot of what he says re. politics (no real surprise there), but his observations on the mechanics of comedy are worth thinking/arguing about.
