Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

January 25th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker listed three links for the video of his MITWorld lecture on Words and Rules: two pages at Harvard and the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists. Had I lingered longer in the lab, perhaps I too could have proposed myself for membership. However, I recently had my hair trimmed so I am not sure I would qualify now compared to those who could clothe themselves in their locks.

Time to go take a pair of scissors…to the draft outline of my presentation notes. Thanks to Steven Pinker for the laughs and looks at his ‘do. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in my love of the laboratory and long hair…

Little did I know: The public loves to see and applaud scientists who have luxuriant flowing hair.

    I think you should submit a photo from before you cut your hair, pasted together with a photo of you doing a science experiment with the kids…looking at the other photos, your hair certainly qualifies! It doesn’t say “long” hair, just “flowing luxuriant!”
