Lincoln Carr joins Luxuriant Former Hair Club (LFHCfS)

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

Lincoln Carr has joined the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

In graduate school I had luxuriant flowing hair.  I foolishly accepted a post-doc in Paris where crazed mobs of Frenchmen chased me down and shaved me bald, shrieking, “Vive la France!  Tu seras chauve, chien Américain!”  While there, I also had a very bald baby.  My hair has never grown back.

I am a biomedical engineer, and I design instruments for field medicine,to support healthcare in the remotest areas of the world. Hair has only little to do with my research, and this is why I need plenty of it.

Halfdan Skjerning joins the Luxuriant FFF Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFFFHCfSS)

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Halfdan Skjerning  has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or/and Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFHCfSS). He says:

I study Health-Related Quality of Life in children and adolescents with celiac disease. I am fascinated by the resilience or stubbornness of the beard. When trimmed down, it keeps growing out again – it’s like it doesn’t learn, or maybe it has a will of its own. Equally intriguing are the reactions of other people towards the beard; some want to touch it and look upon it with envy, while others are intimidated by it. You can tell a lot about people from their reactions to a beard.

Scientists let their hair down, welcome social scientists to the club

Monday, February 9th, 2015

The joint membership committee of the The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS), the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS), and the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) is proud and pleased to sheepishly announce the creation of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Social Scientists.

The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFHCfSS) was founded this month, February 2015, after the joint membership committee decided that it had been purely snooty in excluding social scientists from the clubs.

These are conjoined quadruplet clubs — members of each club are accorded full honorary privileges of the other clubs.

The members of all four clubs can and should be seen and admired online.

UPDATE (February 10, 2015): Almost immediately, the membership committee moved, unanimously, to make the new club fully inclusive, thus changing the name to Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFFFHCfSS).
