Does this have any thing to do with the musical Hair?

LOVED this post! Course I'm a sucker for luxuriant flowing hair... and mad scientists too.

From the article:

"The first member, chosen by acclamation, was psychologist Steven Pinker, whose hair has long been the object of admiration, and envy, and intense study."

Psssst... That's the guy Bob Wright is talking to on the latest Bloggingheads two posts down.

That Althouse is ALWAYS dropping breadcrumbs for us. Way to go!

@Penny I found this page after Meade looked up Pinker on Wikipedia. It's linked from there.

"Is it flowing? I like flowing, cascading hair.

Thick lustrous hair is very important to me."

Penny said...

Yeah, figured that out, Ann. Interestingly, I was reading Althouse in reverse chronological order today, so in reading this post, I became curious about the first person inducted into this "madcap" group, which led me to Steven Pinker's Wikipedia entry, and THEN I scrolled down a few posts to see he was on Bloggingheads.

Are men allowed to shake out their long flowing locks the way women do in that I'm hot stuff gesture? Or is that, uh...overdoing it?

Gotta love a club that brings together three of my intellectual heroes: Steven Pinker, Brian May, and Norman Ramsey. In fact, it's pretty darned hard to think of any other way those three names would go together.

Should I join?

EDH said...

Crimso,

You never told us you were mentioned in that President Kennedy's Inaugural Address!

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, Bear Andy Burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

Scientists with LFH tend to not wash it much, alas.

Crimso said...

EDH, it's not a coincidence my mother did just that. She's often cited Kennedy's call as the reason for her (arguably) poor decision to have me.

Or did you mean "bear" in a different sense?
