I have the 40% peroxide based bleach paste burning into my scalp as I
type. My fingers are white. I guess you are supposed to wear gloves.
I'm breaking all the rules. Reapplying the bleach immediatedly and not
waiting 36 hrs. Not putting any conditioner on. Leaving bleach in for
an hour instead of twenty minutes to accelerate things. To be honest
i'm going blonde out of boredom. If meg can base a thread on
sandwiches it gives me permission to post a similarly irrelvant topic.

What's the 'nude female members' album then? That shemale thing again?

You better watch out for Wolfin. He has a thing for blondes.

I've got naturally blond hair and have tried dying it darker in the
past. Even black once. Feel like it has more 'character' to it than
blond. People always get upset when I do. I guess because more
people would rather have blond hair? One person said I looked evil
with black hair. :P

By the time you read this, it will be too late, but the rules are
there for a very good reason.

If you decide to dye your hair again, don't use peroxide, buy a
Clairol product, and FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!

I knew a natural blondie would have to rub it in that they are a
natural blonde. I just didn't think it would be a guy.

Like most rules, they are there for a reason, but breaking them isn't terribly
likely to make you end up bald or something. Its just a possibility. I've done
all sorts of horrible things to my hair in the past to dye it, and I've never
had a problem. The basic stuff you can buy in the hair-care aisle at kmart
won't do jack shit to your hair if its black to start with anyway.

On the other hand, if just the possibility of being bald for awhile
terrifies you, then yeah, you probably want to follow the rules.

This is not really related to what you wrote. I found another
e-mail in an old collection of e-mails to some of my classes a few
years ago that might be of interest. In a pre-calculus class I had
discussed the square-cube law (as an application of growth rates)
and it's importance using several examples -- why we have lungs and
blood vessels but bugs don't, airplane wind tunnel extrapolations,
why elephants have limbs that are so much thicker by proportion to
their size than the limbs of flies, etc.

I sent my class an e-mail containing some excerpts about the
square-cube law from a book that I have.

**********************************
**********************************

Guy Murchie, "THE SEVEN MYSTERIES OF LIFE: An Exploration in
Science and Philosophy", Houghton Mifflin, 1978

From pages 15-16 ---->

** It was Galileo who first articulated this law as the Principle
** of Similitude and it explains why no animal as little as a
** mouse need worry about getting hurt if it falls off a cliff or
** out of an airplane at any height since its body surface amounts
** to a parachute in relation to its meager weight, while an
** elephant is likely to be killed falling ten feet because his
** 10,000 times greater surface is made negligible by his 1 million
** times greater relative weight. This is because any two-dimensional
** surface increases as the square, while the corresponding
** three-dimensional volume or weight increases as the cube. And
** it explains why insects need no lungs and algae need no leaves,
** their simple spiracles and surfaces being ample enough to absorb
** all the oxygen or carbon dioxide their diminutive bodies need,
** while larger animals and plants would suffocate without their
** vast breathing areas in lungs and leaves. And, since digestion
** too is a surface function (of the surface of the intestines),
** it also explains why a ton of mice eats ten times as much as a
** ton of horses, and a ton of bacteria about ten times as much
** as a ton of mice.

From pages 20-21 ---->

** ... the task of keeping warm and getting enough to eat becomes
** critical ... for the small. This is because heat is radiated
** only from a body's surface area, not from its total volume, and
** little creatures have relatively huge surfaces. So the food
** supply must be proportional to skin size, not weight--which
** explains why men may eat less than 2 percent of their weight
** daily on the average, while mice (despite the insulation of
** their fur coats) must tuck away a good 25 percent of theirs.
** An extreme case in point is that of the tiniest and most
** numerous mammal of all, the shrew, who comes out at night and
** burrows largely unseen in every forest floor and through
** practically every garden in every continent but Australia and
** Antarctica, and is represented by more than 30 species in North
** America alone. Although some shrews are so tiny they weigh less
** than a dime and you seldom notice the traces of their diggings,
** their appetites are relatively enormous--inevitably so because
** such a minuscule creature, with so little mass per square inch
** of skin, metabolizes four times as fast as the smallest mouse
** (per gram of tissue), ... The fact that he feels hungry enough
** to hunt almost every waking minute, a compulsion ultimately
** enforced by the lurking threat of starvation should he ever
** fast as long as three or four hours, gives him a ferocious
** disposition befitting the most terrible mammalian predator
** (gram for gram) on Earth.

A discussion of how ferocious shrews can be came next,
but it got pretty graphic. It doesn't appear that Murchie's book
is in <deleted>'s library (I just checked the on-line catalog),
but it's in my office if you want to see the rest of what was
written about shrews.

**********************************
**********************************

Unfortunately, Murchie's book happens to be in storage right now,
else I would have copied the rest of it now. Although I didn't feel
comfortable e-mailing the graphic stuff to my class, I wouldn't
hesitate to post it here! (It was pretty graphic, and so I felt
there was a possibility that a sensitive student might register
a complaint.)

I investigated this earlier. There is no short-cut to bleaching hair.
You need peroxide. Peroxide is the best way. The sun is ten time worse
for your hair.
The instuctions are for wimps. I have bleached my hair 3 times and
coloured it 3 times in quick succession. My hair is ok and my scalp is
buring but i can live with that. For some reason my hair wanted to
stay platinum blonde. I want med ash blonde. I almost cried the last
time i put the dye on my head from the burning.

I know I've made some posts in the past praising the virtue of ice
cream, but since we're discussing this topic here, I would like to
take the chance and point all of your respective silver- and glassware
as well as your alimentary canals to the direction of... tomato juice.
With or without bits, it's equally succulent, luscious, and soothing
yet stimulating any time of day - or night, should a desire - or a
need - for something envigorating ;););) strike you after dark.
A.s.s'es up.

lol...trust me I'm not rubbing it in. :P Judging from my uncles I'll
be losing my hair. It's much more noticeable on someone with fine,
blond hair than thick black hair. Plus it makes me fit in more as a
steretypical, young, blond, white, male, evil bastard. Thank god I
have green eyes.

At least being blonde would give you a good excuse for......well......never

I'm not staying blonde too long. I've never liked blonde hair on guys.
I'm going to try dark blonde next. After that I'm going back to light
brown. I want to gauge how people respond to me as a blonde. I expect
people to try to initiate more conversations with me. That happens
when I wear a baseball hat or walk my dog.
