    If you're not already from The Physics Forum, you'll begin to regret it before long.
    It's an often thankless job in which you can please almost no one.

    A friendly reminder, before your trigger finger gets itchy- I still have copies of those incriminating photos of you.

    It was a tough campaign, for both of us. My opponent has been nominated, and I congratulate him, he is the better man. Well done Markus... until next election.

    Having been a moderator on other forums, I am hesitant to congratulate you.
    Instead I simply offer you my most sincere condolences.
    Good luck!

    To forestall baldness try extremely vigorous hand massage after shampooing scalp, especially from inside out motions. Same principle as massaging gums - stimulates subsurface circulation ("vasa pilorum"). Seems to have worked for me. I had thick hair till about 15 yrs ago started that technique and the thinning process seemed to stop.

    Thanks for the tip, but my hair is completely gone already ! But to be honest, I really don't have any issue with being bald, in fact I really came to like it. I'm quite comfortable with it now, and wouldn't want to go back to having hair at all

    I'm the same, getting thin on top through my 30s -- it will eventually get to the point I just shave my head, can't say it will bother me...

    @Babe, I love Oktoberfest -- I've been many times over the years... (P.S.I'd rather be bald than GINGER )
    Gingers have more fun! *chuckle* Brat Mr. Demon!

    Dr. Hankenstein I presume.

    This is definitely a quantum leap. However from my frame of reference I can't tell if the timing is right or if you've traveled far enough to get to this position. A position I am certain is for you even if I never get a real close look at it.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy....Congrats
