Do you have a beard? If you do, how long have you had one?
I am clean shaven unless its duck season.
About 4 inches. Chronologically speaking, about 15 years
I wish. The genes just weren't there. I sport a goatee about half the time, but can't get the hair to grow on my cheeks and along my jaw line. Much to my wife's satisfaction. She says she would hate it.
I used to have a beard, from 1974-1999. It hung just about to my belly button. The reason for that was I just could not trim it properly. Went to the barber and they did a bad job at trimming, so I let it grow. Then for a new job I had to shave it off. Tried to grow it back but it itches to much now. It never used to itch. Most be getting old.
I grow my beard for the winter. Then in early Spring it becomes a Van dyke (what most people call a goatee). My wife likes it. The covenant youth at church like it. As one of them mis-spoke: "You look smarter with your beard!"
Hmmmm is that a Dos Itchies beard?
Clean shaven, but, I wish the Army would let me grow a beard.

Yes. Its been 3 months.
I grew it to start because I hated being 23 and looking 18 with out a beard. Now on good beard days with the right outfit I look about my age sometimes a bit older.
Now I have a beard for other reasons plus the one just given.
I call it my theology beard in the making or the Calvin. Every inch is one more inch of theology I have learned. (Jokes... )
Except that this year I decided not to shave it off.
I have a goatee in the warmer months and a full beard in the colder months. I've had some kind of facial hair (mustache, goatee or beard) for the past 35 years. My wife likes it and has never asked me to be "clean shaven" for which I am thankful!
Beard for 37 years - wouldn't recognise myself in the mirror without it.
I don't grow particularly well or fast, but every once in awhile I try to grow a beard. I never can get past the "itchy stage" and I end up shaving and giving up.
No desire to have a scratchy face.
In honor of beards, here is a top ten list from David Letterman about a great American beard.

I first had a beard about 26 years ago, with a number of years in that time - I can't remember when - when I was without it.
One of my favorites from the Top Ten lists
if I don't shave in the morning, yes, I have a beard.
I quite enjoy growing hair on my face since I cannot on my scalp.
my wife dislikes any facial hair, so I rarely have it.
I voted "clean shaven," but luckily that's not even technically true, since there's no shaving needed. There was no option just for "no." Though I suppose I could've voted "I can't grow one," but that would maybe seem like I was lamenting the fact.
I rock a goatee.
Beard and long hair - 1971-1977 (first son started pulling on it when he got to be 6 mo old)
Beard and buzzed (now bald) - 1995 to present
My eldest explained to his congregation at his installation as lead pastor that he was raised by aging hippies. Bald and bowtied makes that somewhat difficult to imagine.
I have a beard because I am a presbyter. (And I look 11 years old without one!)
My wife doesn't like my clean-shaven, 11-year-old-looking face, and even when I shave my beard, she only lets me use a groomer, not a razor. Luckily, I'm a songwriter, a profession requiring a permanent 5-o'clock shadow.
Currently going with a short-cropped goatee which I will shave in preparation for football season when I will put on the striped shirt and whistle.

Had a beard for about 3 years. Decided to grow it out this year. almost 4 months in and its looking really nice. Can't wait to see what the rest of the year has to hold.
I can't grow a beard. It comes out scruffy.
Can't grow a beard/wish I could. When I let it go out I have a tiny stache and side burns, although keep in mind I'm 17 and a late bloomer.
Brother, I am now 23 and just started to be able to grow a mustache.
I had a goatee since my late teens, started at 18. Now at 23 I decided to grow a full beard, had trouble at first but its looking thick now.
I'll grab a picture and post it.
Edit: Picture added
This is after a long day, needs some gel to look nice. Its also just the third month in, needs some work.
Here is a picture somewhat recent with out the beard. (Slight goatee, but not much)
I personally think I look better with a trimmed goatee, but I'm afraid to shave my beard. Beards become a part of you, you can't shave it off. Haha.
Other facial hair - see the picture
As Jessica pointed out, there are a few women around....
