Jake Eccles joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

Jake Eccles has joined the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I hope that all scientists are driven not only to better understand our world, but also by a desire to improve the lives of its occupants. Certainly, research demonstrates incredible potential to contribute to such far-reaching goals, and yet I am struck by the degree of internal hostility to which scientific communities are prone. If we, in our profession, truly possess such noble aspirations, these ought be expressed regularly through our relationships to colleagues. Thus, my hair represents an appeal to all seekers of truth and beauty: let your good will toward fellow scientists ever be luxuriant and flowing!

Mike Coffey joins the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Mike Coffey has joined the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) and the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I am a lecturer in analytical chemistry at Nottingham Trent University, U.K. I last went to a barber at the age of 14; since then occasional trims remain times of tension in my marriage when my wife insists very hard. I grew my beard when my daughters started going through the “You are SO embarrassing” phase, just to prove a point. I wish to join before I need to apply for the “Luxuriant Former Hair” instead.

Michael Scheid has joined the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I am a PhD student in neuroscience at Northwestern University studying neurophysiology using biofeedback in monkeys. I stopped cutting my hair when I began working on my thesis to save time and money, and now, my only regret in life is all the time and money I spent not growing out long luscious luxurious flowing hair earlier.
