You know how when you go to the barber, he takes the edge of the electric razor and trims around your ear? Well, on the left, the guy had it done recently because there is a clear margin and a very neat look. But on the right, he's due for a haircut because you see no margin at all between his sideburn and his ear. The hair is growing all the way to the ear. There's no easement there. There is on the left.
They are NOT the same man. Stop fighting it, and stop denying it.
