What I was wondering is if you noticed the sparse hair growing in slower than the rest of the hair when it first started sprouting, or whether once you started growing it, it pretty much grew at the same rate as the rest of your facial hair. What I can glean from your answers is that the trend is toward the latter.
If I'd have to describe my own growth patterns as anything.. it'd be... I dunno.. like a badly seeded yard, maybe? Once it started going full tilt and wasn't just a random new hair every now and again, it filled in rapidly in certain areas. After that, it seemed to slowly spread.
While hairs more or less started appearing all over the place at once, along my mid and upper cheek it was so sparse that I kept it shaved down as it looked terrible otherwise, while my lower jaw filled in rapidly.
Also, I'd like to smack the crap out of 2003 me and tell me to shave the damn soulpatch bit off, because that's... that's just terrible.

Honestly, if you're talking BBQ and 'a guy in a parking lot' isn't part of the conversation, something's wrong."
