While reading a recent issue of Mental Floss Magazine, I came across a way to prevent men from losing their hair that has supposedly been known to work since the time of Aristotle. CASTRATION. So for those men who say they will do anything to keep their hair, how far will you really go?
And for those already bald, sorry it is too late for this method to work.
Aristotle was full of it; there was an early 20th century humorist named Will Cuppy who wrote some hilarious articles pointing out the old Greek’s insane “facts”.
If you can dig up a book called ‘How to Become Extinct’ by Cuppy give it a read; really funny stuff.
Actually it was proven scientifically in 1995 from what I read but I hope they paid the volunteers in that study well
Will Cuppy is a literary genius. He wrote “How to Attract the Wombat”.
Let the neutering begin ….. Sheez, Aristole had some balls suggesting that
Considering he was bald in the end I say he didn’t go for it
Loon: -groan- heheheheh
It’s only hair dude- personally, hair makes no difference in the attractiveness of a man (to me). Now confidence and a tad bit of cocky- that could seal the deal in about 5 minutes!
Rip comes home with his locks shaved and lets see how you feel then. Hahah
DHT, testosterone, and testicles all go hand in hand… uh, that didn’t sound quite right (actually it sounded just like I wanted it to. I haven’t had breakfast yet and am having a Snickers moment).
I read about this over 10 years ago when I was in the process of losing my hair. I have a 1 year old son, so needless to say I didn’t go through with it. 🙂
Well I guess dumping your testicles and therefore your testosterone should also limit your chances of Prostate Cancer.
I prefer to keep being bald, thank you very much. 8)
Well if you are already bald, it is too late.
Yep… Too late for me. Of course I’d had tried THAT! Yes. Really… Why are you looking at me like that?
Really? I expect your hair to look like your avatar
As much as I expect yours to look like yours 🙂
That’s like making someone double bald – insult to injury.
too close a shave
I think I’ll give Rogaine a solid run first.
I’ll bet transsexuals will be pleased to hear this. 😉
I bet that’s the reason they have great hair…
What? OOOOOHHHHHHH NM
Given a choice, I would go for the Walter White look.
I’m not thinking any guy would do this to keep their hair.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Not on purpose
Too bad hubby didn’t know about this a few years ago!
Good thing for hubby YOU didn’t know about this a few years ago
Nothing like a post to get us by the short hairs. Or how about – wow what a kick in the balls post.
I don’t worry about it. I have balls and hair.
Good for you…and fine locks of hair you have
All I got to say is, “OUCH!”
That about sums it up
Do they look any better?
It’s a little late (and drastic!) for someone I know.
Not gonna do it! I’m happy with the way things are here!
And as a monkey you could always grow out your back hair and comb it over
“How far will you really go?”
It’s widely known that Aristotle invented the “comb over”.
He did go bald so…
so the choice is between
sex but no hair ?
hair but no sex ?
it’s a no-brainer really !
So you are saying you are getting some? Good for you.
It actually works. As a married man who carries his balls around in a jar, I can at least claim a full head of hair. It may be the color of a cloudy day, with a hint of snow in the air, but It’s all there. [grin]
haha….Great one. Your wife makes you carry them too?
I may not be able to carry them around like some guys, but at least they are still firmly in hand when needed! [blinks] …although at this stage of life, they are vacuum sealed in there!
I knew there was a reason I’m not much of a philosopher.
That and your like of crappy movies
The Grand Budapest Hotel? Should I reserve your ticket now?!
Uh.. No pain no gain? Although that pain may not quite be worth the gain.
Would love to send this to the ex….
The No Tipping line kills me.
Originally I was going to have a guy running off yelling Keep the Tip but was too lazy
I think I would learn to embrace my impending baldness. I like my equipment just the way it is, barely working.
No fair…no black guy ever looks bad bald and most people think it is a stylistic choice anyway
Take just a little off the top. And the bottom.
Too bad it’s too late for me to try this time tested method. Wish I’d tried it earlier. Although my kids are probably glad I didn’t.
Dixie & all the other dogs dogs I’ve ever had were neutered & none of them lost their fur so it does work.!!!
haha…that is true. Never see a bald dog
I don’t know why I typed dogs dogs. Mustn’t have been paying attention attention
The best way for me to cure baldness is to stop using my shaver, I do that myself every for to six weeks or so but I have never understood guys crying over the loss of their hair. I have had the same look for over fifteen years so I couldn’t care less about it, and castration is definitely out of the question so hard lines 🙁 lmao
Have a wicked Tuesday Bearman 🙂
Some guys don’t look good with a bald head
Yes I have noticed that too 🙂 lmao
Castration it is then, oh dear those
poor sackless oafs, I mean souls 🙁 lol
No idea where the ‘U’ disappeared to in Four 🙁 Grrrrr
A guy who would go that route has to have balls (ironically).
Now that I am old enough that those bits don’t get used except to provide company for Excalibur, I am follockly challenged!
I thought those old Excalibur guards had long flowing hair.
Ha. You’re probably like me. I signed up for my free issue of Mental Floss when I saw Calvin and Hobbes on the cover. Got it yesterday so I’ll have to check out that article when I get a second to sit down and read it (which is hard to come by these days).
I don’t worry about it. I have balls and hair.
That’s a good thing.
