Perhaps I will just start having to choose a new hat for each DAC, and make that part of my signature appearance.

I read an interview with Patrick Stewart of Star Trek Next Generation fame. In the interview he mentioned a time when someone, commenting on his lack of hair, asked why he didn't wear a hair piece, since they obviously would have cured baldness by the 24th century. Stewart's reply was: "In the 24th century, no one will care if you are bald or not."

The 1977 comb-over patent is surely one of those that brings the patent system into disrepute. It is surely blindingly obvious and soccer players Bobby Charlton and Ralph Coates clearly demonstrated prior art.

When it reaches the RnR HoF that's going to be one grubby baseball cap

Add a hat to your repertoire. You'd look cool! :) Btw, hair challenge issues are why The Edge of U2 has been sporting headgear since 'The Joshua Tree'. But if you see him in the video concert Live at Red Rocks, bareheaded, his appearance was pretty nondescript. Now, with every new album and tour, Edge's latest choice of headgear is part of the story. For Rick Neilsen of Cheap Trick, it started in his 20's but the baseball cap has been his signature, destined for the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame museum one day. So it's not all bad!

A real man does not worry about such trivial issues as hair loss. Besides, it saves you money on hair cuts. If someone likes you only for your hair, buy them a furry toy to play with. You need someone much smarter. Just my opinion.
