Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) is a club for scientists who have, or believe they have, luxuriant flowing hair.

HOW TO JOIN THE CLUB: To propose yourself (and your hair) for membership in the club, please send info to: LUXURIANT HAIR CLUB c/o

Please include a photograph -- or a URL that points to a photograph -- in which the luxuriant, flowing hair is CLEARLY evident. Also please include a URL pointing to your credentials as a scientist. You may nominate someone else whose hair you admire, provided that you have first consulted that person.

NOTE: Each new member is entitled, should he or she request it, to a free issue of the Annals of Improbable Research.

PUBLIC ADMIRATION: The public loves to see and applaud scientists who have luxuriant flowing hair. Therefore, all LFHCfS members who come to Improbable Research events are invited to take a bow, allowing the audience to shower them and their hair with applause.

PALAEOBLOG NOTE: Paleontologists seem to be underepresented in this club. I can think of at least one paleontologist in Alberta who should be inducted. Let the paleo-nominations begin!
