Firstly, I must give a huge shout out to Lou-Lou Driscoll for finding this pic of no beard-Sayid from Lost for me. Holla!
Secondly, is this not one of the most compelling pieces of scientific evidence so far? The man is hardly an uggo without the beard. But with the beard? Sweet Christ Bale he looks good! Torturously good. This pic could be the full stop to BWAB because it confirms the theory so convincingly. However, I think we need to be conclusive about this, so if I must. I will continue the research.
