    Default Long hair

    Just wondering if JET would prejudice against guys with long hair.
    I'm thinking of getting mine cut if I got accepted into the scheme but not for the interview. Do you think that would go against me?

    Mmm...

    I was a long-hair boy. I did the interview, got in, and never had a word spoken to me by the school regarding the hippy look.

    That said, I cut my hair a couple of months back, primarily because

    a) I look shit with long hair
    b) Japan can get quite hot

    So, going from my experience, there was no visible prejudice. I wouldn't think that this is a gospel statement though. Others may have had problems.

    I think the key thing though is to be professionally presentable. If you can manage that with long hair, you should be okay.

    I cut mine just before coming to Japan just in case (it was short for the interview too) but then regretted it when I got here and saw how many JETs have long hair, piercings, etc. I'm now growing it again and have had no negative comments from the school.

    Well that's ok. You know how prejudiced some places are with appearance even though it makes no difference to how you work.

    I will probably cut it off if I'm sucessful. I spent a month in South Africa with long hair and I have to admit, it's just a pain when it's always hot and sticky.
    In England it's fine.

    I can mysterious read loads now but writing them is more of a challenge. Plus I don't know WHY I can read them, I just kind of "have-a-feeling-this-is-right" and 9 times out of 10 it is!

    doo-dee-doo-dee scary stuff...

    need to use it a bit more though, been ridiculously busy recently

    With the long hair, just make sure that they don't catch you out with the trick Warhammer/Christian rock questions at the interview. They have little genuine interest in gretchin.h

    I found a shop here selling Games Workshop stuff. Lots of guys sat around painting, etc.

    Oh, the memories...

    80's soft hair-metal playing in the background? Or was it on of the 'pure' stores, where they play Man O'war to Manowar with rules they complicated themselves so that they can speak like pirates? The funk of adolescent sweat is so deep that a party of 11-year olds disappears in one of the more obscure aisles.

    Not that I wargamed.

    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    What's your definition of soft hair metal? Metal that's not Heavy, Thrash, Death, etc? Just curious. My fave comics & games store plays obscure prog-rock and 70s acid rock, and occasionally classic punk. Yay! No room for wargaming, though.

    80s soft hair metal = Stan Bush and theme songs on the 1986 Transformer movie soundtrack.

    No music, but did you know that you regain your virginity every time you go in there? I now have Virginity +5 now thanks to that place. But my CHA is still 18. :wink:

    Just think of the poor saps in there who never lost theirs. They've gotta be like, uber virgins.

    Sorry to jump in on a convo, but it was one of those things that just called to me.
    It is a solidly built word of just four letters, bracketed by rock-hard consonants. It ... explodes into space from a gate formed by the upper incisors and the lower lip. Then it slams to a dramatic glottal cough.

    We really need a separate 'geeky stuff' forum, don't we? Paul?
