Also says, "It would be nice to see you with some hair on your head again. Why not let it grow again a bit? Maybe 1/4 inch would be good."
It's bizarre but also encouraging. Yes, I guess it would be nice to have hair again but that ship has sailed.
The encouraging bit is that she apparently doesn't realise this. Even though I've told her. Even though she can see how little growth there is. She's seen it where I haven't shaved for about a week and it's plain that nothing grows on the top.
But apparently it's not plain to her. So it's good in one sense. It's apparently not as noticable as I thought. Or she has a serious vision impairment.
I mean, what does she think? That I'm doing it for fashion? I told her when I first did it that it was because my hair was really thinning. Then about two years ago, she was asking about this again and I showed her. "Hey. Look at the top of my head. Do you see any growth there? No. It wouldn't start growing if I just leave it." If I recall rightly, she jokingly (at least I think it was a joke) suggested a combover at that point.
I mean, some stubble, it's fine. That's why I only shave it every week. I shave it on Sunday and by Friday, there's some considerable stubble. It looks different but it's presentable. But 1/4 of an inch is pretty long. And the problem is you'd have to shave that again. And if you let it grow too long (two weeks or more), you have to first take clippers to it and it's just a lot more work.
Anyway, a bit weird.
Playing King of Colosseum 2. This was a game released in 2001 by the makers of Fire Pro. It's 3-d so unlike Fire Pro's sprite-based gameplay. I don't know why it didn't take off. It's great. I've been adding all of the unlockable characters in. There's a weird system for doing this. Takes a while. I only have five left to do, though. I've added 115 already.
So much potential for this game. Even if it was just more of everything, I'd be happy. Bigger roster (although, it's bigger than any WWE game even to this day), more edit slots (100 edit slots is a lot but need more...especially when there's 120 unlockable characters who each require an edit slot), more match modes, more characters in the ring at the same time (only 4 instead of Fire Pro's 8), et cetera.
And what's unbelievable is that this game got the licence for all the major Japanese wrestling companies. New Japan, All Japan, NOAH, Zero-One, and even some smaller ones that no longer exist. In the Fire Pro games, these feds were called "Olive Japan" and stuff like that. Fake names. Same thing they'd do for the wrestlers. But here, it's all legit names because they had the licence. And in spite of this, they still add other wrestlers and MMA guys from other promotions and give them fake names. Not many Americans but there's Hogan and Flair. I don't think they added anyone who was under contract to the WWE at the time.
It's crazy. Why was there no King of Colosseum 3? They seemed to have it all. The 3-d graphics that the kids these days want. The real wrestlers from every major (and some minor) Japanese federation. Wrestling matches. A good MMA system. Mike Tyson is in the game (under a different name, but you can change the names). What more do you want?
