thats right, i have an awesome afro, been growing it forever, my friend is getting a macbook and was planning to sell his powerbook on ebay. he said if i shave off my awesome 'fro (not a buzzcut, shaved with a razor) he'd give me his 12" powerbook with CS2, final cut pro, logic pro, games, and lots of other cool software on it. should i go for this deal?

shave the hell outta that! Damn why are you even asking hahaha.

Think of this not as just a freebie but an outlet into a new style, maybe you'll decide you want something else instead of the fro. A blessing, not a risk ;)

I'd let someone shave my head for free, cause I'd be getting a free haircut!

Oh dear lord, the dreaded jewfro. :D

Make damn sure he signs on it, because you've got to take an offer like that. It will make for a good story as well.

with a shaved head, you'll also be more aerodynamic and can go faster.

Silver lining!

Don't do it!

I'm in the same situation as you, my friends are trying to bribe me into shaving my fro. They've me offered money, tickets.....

No way I'm doing it though.

Dude.... definitly do it.... everyone who's anyone and in a band is shaving their head. I mean, look at Moby, Randy Jackson, ummmm.........

I can't think of anyone else with a cool shaved head.


But seriously... a powerbook cant just grow in a year, whereas if you shave your head, and then decide that no other hair styles work for you, you can wait a few months and it'll all be good again...

Senior Trip in High school all the guys said they would give me $500 (collective, not separate) and they would all shave their head if I did. I didn't. And I'm happy I didn't. Would have been more memorable if I did, but they know I'm not a weak person.

Wait til he pays you to take the laptop...:cool:

Aaron Lewis has a shaved head.


At least they used to be good. So he used to be cool.

Yeah.. a FREE computer, just for shaving your head? It grows back!

Heck, I'd shave my head for a free computer, and I'm pretty sure I have a lumpy head!

Yup. but FREE IS FREE!

and I'd grab a wig from one of my more theatrical friends. It would be like being in a play, until it grows back.

Depending on how long it is, maybe you could donate it to locks of love?

haha....my head was shaved during high school baseball initiation. It wasn't bad at all. Yeah, I looked dumb for a couple of weeks, but hey, it passed. I didn't even get a free PB either.

Dude tell them I'll shave my whole body for it.

on the one hand, I wouldn't sell out an image that mattered to me for a powerbook.

on the other hand, afros really need to go back to the 70s and die there. No offense to you personally. :p

How much does it cost to have your hair made into a wig?

Look into it...

If an image matters that much to someone, then they have bigger problems than the dilemma at hand.

Good decision.

You can always just BUY a powerbook. Hair is priceless.

You're gonna have more people laugh at you for not taking this deal than you would for having a bald head. Plus this is just a little story to tell the audience in between songs. I can't believe someone would pass up something like this over hair. I'll donate you a hat if you need it that badly.

I can totally understand not wanting to shave it off. I don't think I'd do it unless it was for a substantial amount of money. I have a very round face and it'd make me look like a balloon or something.

On the other hand, it can look pretty good on some people, Natalie Portman being the perfect example.

Apr 9, 2006, 10:30 PM
wow...i can't believe you turned that down.
hell, i'd shave my head, my...well anywhere, for a heck of a lot less than a powerbook. then again, im pretty much a whore that way...:o

shave it! I personally think the shaving of ones head is something that every man, women and child should do at least once in their lifetime. I know a lot of women never will, but honestly it's an experience worth trying! Feeling water in the shower on your scalp, feeling the wind across your head. Ahh soo nice. I usually buzz mine off for the summer.

I'd totally shave my head... but then again I always wear a hat.

This reminds me of the Amazing Race when the model couple refused to shave their heads at the Fast Forward (because they were worrieda about their modelling careers) ... and well, they didn't win the 1 million dollars.

Fast forward a couple seasons when Uchenna and Joyce faced the same decision at the fast forward ... and went through with it. Guess what ... they won the million dollars.

(of course there are other factors in the race too...)

But everyone makes their own decisions. =)
