    One of ScoMo's advisors must be too vain to bear going a week without a trim or something - I can't even fathom how else that even came to light as being viable.

    Shaun Micallef thinks Michaelia Cash might be the answer. Given a lot of the male polititians have no hair or nearly no hair, I think he may be on to something. She may also be the reason the half hour restriction was lifted. Mind you she could just get a new hairdo 3D printed...

    If you don't know her...michaelia cash hair - Google Search

    ...and her voice makes her hair seam subtle.

    Most people wait for the muse to turn up. That's terribly unreliable. I have to sit down and pursue the muse by attempting to work.

    My wife would tell you that if you think women spend a lot of money and time on their hair, you've never met a male CEO of a major corporation. Or a male member of Congress. The more fastidious the hair, the deeper (and darker) the insecurities.

    A friend who worked in politics used to take great pleasure addressing perfectly coiffed male members of Congress with "Could I have a small word with you?" and watching them twitch at the word "small". Trent Lott for one.

    I posted the question in one of these threads if people were going to grow out there hair or buzzcut it. I think all the guys that grow it out will have mullets in October for their Tiger King costumes.

    For you parents teaching kids at home, may I recommend the "True Facts" series for biology.

    Todd,
    Thanks for making me laugh out loud. Not many chances to do that lately.

    My wife spotted this near our house, someone wanting to say thank you to our National Health Service. My wife and I are both NHS workers and find it very humbling that we are getting such widespread appreciation.
