    Then tried a specific company, not a comparison site, and they wanted my mobile number. I had already given my house tel number, but it wouldnít let me proceed without my mobile.
    Give someone else's mobile number. Or make one up. Unless they need to call you as part of the quotation process, there's no need of them to have your number.

    I give the work mobile number of an ex employer . I can't imagine the number of times it has been called.

    Always thought it was mental that grasses get a harder time than the folk who do the crime. Itís the way it is, but itís back to front.

    I always think there has to be a bit context.

    Some ******* assaults his wife right in front of me. I'd have absolutely no issue telling the Police what I witnessed.

    In the current climate if I saw someone shoplifting in a supermarket. I didn't see a thing.

    I keep getting accused of this and it just makes me laugh because those accusing me haven't got any hair left to dye. I'm sure some of them use polish on their heads.

    I always think men who just embrace going bald or turning grey look so much better than those who try to hide it.

    I've got an increasing amount of grey hair. Every haircut sees a greater smattering of grey as it grows back in. So what? I'm approaching 40 and most men will have to deal with going bald or grey. Embrace it and find a style that suits. You can tell the difference between someone who has retained their natural colour and a dye job a mile away. It looks ridiculous 99% of the time and about as natural as Kim Kardashian.

    I used to dye my hair but that was mainly for reasons associated with theatre productions versus vanity. Helps with a brother hair dresser.. . While I was always going silver, I was genuinely looking forward to getting that distinguished look. Hadnt noticed the crown receding and being baldy at the back but not front and sides Having two daughters accelerated the process.

    It's the men in their late 60's+ that do it, jeez I started going grey around 35, never bothered me one bit, if anything I wish it was more silver rather than the salt n pepper look I have.

    Itís an interesting wee side discussion for sure.

    Seems perfectly acceptable and normal for women to dye their hair anytime they want and of course many many do on a regular basis. Fancy highlights when they are younger and defo grey cover when they are older (Iíd wager the vast majority of women in the 40ís and 50ís cover their grey).

    But for men itís oddly taboo. Not that Iíd ever consider it really but not sure I have too much of a problem with dudes that might want to.


    One thing I do agree 100% on is the balding thing. Once it gets to a certain stage then the absolute best thing to do is just shave it off. Any pretendy efforts with long thin hair trying to make up for the lack of coverage just looks gawd awful and a thousand times worse than a simple buzz cut.

    Used to be a guy in my local in Liverpool nicknamed Cherry Blossom. He put black shoe polish on his whole forehead to disguise his baldness.😂

    I feel like I have a slightly biased position (see avatar) 😂

    Shaving it all off is actually quite liberating, only downside is having to do it every few days, and when you try to take off a thermal/beanie hat it tends to stick to your head 😂

    I shaved my hair off last year (the covid crew cut) last year and couldnít believe how liberating it was.

    That certain stage maybe needs to be advertised better.
    Years ago I was in the gents at the Firkin Footlights, clocked a guy in the corner of my eye with a substantially receding hairline, I was just about to turn to him with an "alright mate" when I realised Mr five-heid was actually me 🤣
    The mirror had a 90į return so I seen a side of me I hadn't before.
    Came home that night and gave myself a #1 all over, couple of weeks later I was just bic'ing it, the scalp soon gets used to it. I wouldn't say I've ever been terribly vain but 18 years later I reckon I'm more presentable now than I was then.

    You realise I'm a baldy? I've been rocking the 'zero' setting on the hair clippers for at least 15 years. 👍

    Much prefer guys like you that embrace their baldness, nothing worse than seeing the comb overs or the Mick Miller(comedian) look. Beards are another thing, some guys really suit them and others, well just don't, I attempted one during lockdown, with the salt n pepper hair, I just looked like an old drunk, definitely better clean shaven.

    I enjoy listening to documentaries when falling asleep, I can live with the odd advert before the video resumes but some of the adverts are longer then what Iím listening to e.g 50 minutes!

    On the contrary, forcing people to switch off. A number of the people who I watch are fully funded through Patreon so don't need or want revenue from advertising.

    It was a while ago but I'd read YouTubes adds matched netflixs whole revenue. They are here to stay unfortunately as they are annoying
