An ode to bald men Answered

When I was a child, in a galaxy far, far away, during the turbulent times of the 70's, my brother and I watched our little black and white Zenith® TV. I remember watching shows like Kojak, Columbo, The Streets of San Francisco, The Six Million Dollar Man, Police Woman, and many others. I also watched late night movies like Yul Brynner in The Magnificent Seven. Watching Telly Savalas and Yul Brynner with their manly bald look. Years later when I lost my mane I became inspired by these two actors that shaved their heads during those years. One day I decided to shave whatever little hair I had left and started to proudly show my shiny head. The first day my wife took a good look at me, told me that I looked "sexy". That is when I took her to the eye doctor for a new pair of glasses. I have been showing my baldness proudly for a number of years and I wonder if more of my Instructables brethren share my views. Remember: God made a few perfect heads and the rest He put hair on them.
Yul Brynner (after)Robby, aka Telly Savalas

It varies depending on who is bald I guess. You know what they say, beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone! Going bald is one thing I'll never have to worry about. I have enough hair for 3 people.

My hair has like super powers. Why when I go out in the rain my head doesn't even get wet under it. Once my hair even saved my life. I was riding my bicycle and got hit by a car, I did a somersault over the hood, I was wearing toe clips so me and the bicycle flipped over this guy's hood, then hit my head on the curb on the other side of the street. Not a scratch on me! Although my bicycle got totaled.

All true. Although maybe I just have a really hard head? I was a little dazed, and looked down at the curb right away to see if I'd cracked it. I really hit it!

Not bragging, just saying. Heck ticks die of starvation trying to get to my scalp. I got some thick hair.

Carrot Top used to be funny. Since he bulked up his muscles he doesn't look funny anymore. And he has lots of hair!

Top refers to the location on a person, carrots are orange in color.

That is one definition of what top refers to :-P and as for orange, that is maybe most carrots but not ALL carrots...

They use to all be purple, white and yellow before the late 16th century. The Dutch cultivated them over time into a sweeter tasting and more orange colored variety we know today. ;)

I heard that the reason Chuck Norris' face is not on Mount Rushmore is because they could not find a rock strong enough to make his beard.

Wet sand it prepping it to paint for about 2 months and you might get sick of it. I know I did, but I got over it in time.
