Next year is when I'll probably be bald... not by choice though. Damn my slightly crappy genes. But this means I create an enormous amount of testosterone (If I've read the science properly), which means that I scan put on muscle like it's going out of fashion (which, consequently, it sorta is), mixed with my high level tanning ability means that I can tan in minutes - what with being born on an island in the middle of the Mediterranean
On the subject of age... looking... ness *pause* Yeah, that looks about right.
When I was in Japan - back in 2008 - I got chatting to a Japanese waitress at a great bar that I can't remember the name of (try Shochu when you're next in Japan, it's a great alcoholic drink, btw). She was asking all sorts of questions, as she wanted to practise her English and I wanted to (as I do now) continually learn and refine my Japanese (been studying now for almost 5 years), and one of her questions was:
Japanese lady (in English): How old are you?
Me (in Japanese): guess
Japanese lady (in English, then Japanese because of my facial expression): 32?
Let me explain, I'd just turned 23 (like 2 days earlier) and had a bit of an Abe Hiroshi in Trick goatee coming on. For those of you playing the home game, imagine a dark black, thin goatee that's been shaved quite close to the skin so that it's only just a little more than stubble.
According to her, Japanese men don't have a huge amount of body hair, period. So when this devilishly hansom rogue of a Brit, with a naff goatee, was chatting her up in Japanese, she assumed that I was in my 30s. Which wouldn't have been that bad, considering that she was 31, but even so.
