Does hair make you warmer?

Pete Hickey is your average red blooded Canadian guy – the type of guy that Mom wants every girl to bring home for dinner:

Guy with axe

But Pete wasn’t content with just his charm and good looks – he had a burning question that had to be answered: “has anyone ever really tested [the theory that facial hair makes you warmer]?” Realizing that two people might have different sensitivities to temperature, Pete took it upon himself to be his own experimental control:

Half beard

His results? Facial hair makes you warmer, is more comfortable, and reduces wind resistance. I’m sure he also found that having half a beard vastly increased his dating prowess and social allure. Take it from me guys – ladies go for that look.

    Years ago I knew a grad student who did this. But he was a diagnosed schizophrenic.

    I kind of like what this says about Pete Hickey’s emotional security. No lack of confidence here!

    Now put down that axe.

    That axe is scary expecially when you notice those guards over the blades. How sharp is that thing anyway.

    Now we know why Don Johnson failed.
    Or George Michael for that matter.
    They got the half beard all wrong!

    And what do you folk mean by “what’s with the axe?”
    With those that have one..Who hasn’t had their picture taken with their beloved axe?

    well? nobody. An axe is best charished by hearth and home. Dont leave it by the wood pile or in the shed. And it can make a lovely center piece next to that turkey on thanksgiving.

    The half beard—now I recall the half mustache Burt Reynolds sported back on Johnny Carson…Ahead of his time he was–as a thermal hair scientist.
    yup
    doo dah!

    That second picture is disturbing… A bezoar somehow attached itself to his face and obviously doesn’t wanna leave. Look how it grasps… Very painful to remove.
