Frankly, if you’ve got the ability to grow a mustache, you really have a duty to do so.
Some of the most iconic men in history have exhibited some amazing mustaches – Atilla the Hun, Ron Jeremy, Charlie Chaplin, and Freddie Mercury to name a few. It seems that everyone these days is sprouting a fashionably twirlable handlebar mustache, but personally, I’m not one to follow trends.
Everyone wants to look like a movie star, right? Chiselled jawlines, handsome faces – Oscar winners are revered for looking effortlessly stylish.

As with any fuel, of course, some burn cleaner and some are better suited for different purposes. Natural gas, for example, has twice the energy content than coal (55.5 MJ/kg vs 26 MJ/kg) and produces half the CO2 when burned.
Why, then, do we still burn coal for electricity? Because it’s cheap and easy.
