No worries brother, it takes no effort to become a highly intuitive, super intelligent, tracking survival beast once again.

And this thread might just be the inspiration I need! I started growing it again a year ago and just when I was getting shaggy and was starting to feel good about it, she conspired with my hair lady (her good friend) and clipped me down all short again... She said I looked younger with short hair. Bah! I'm not buying it!

being more with one with nature and sporting healthy locks of hair may prove to be more valuable than sporting a Jarhead baldy…..


As a woman with hair that is ankle length touches the floor when wet, I wonder, if they have long hair and braid it or tie it in a cloth or something, how would it be any help...on the other hand if you leave it down, it gets tangled in the bushes, wraps around stuff and ruins it (amazingly strong it broke all four rollers on my office chair, can't cut it off the rollers), won't dry when it is wet, you get long hair in your undies :-) how is this going to help in the rugged outdoors.

I can feel every hair when it is down, which it is most of the time, if an insect walks on my hair anywhere or someone touches with a finger I feel it. But overall I think it would be a hinderance to cleanliness and stealth in the woods. All people shed around 100 hairs a day, a hundred of my over 5 ft long hairs would make it easy tracking me I think.

I was going to shoot sir but my hair got caught in the gun and...!!

Well we all know that Animals use whiskers to sense things near their mouths!
So is it such a far stretch to consider that our hair is somehow used like radar?
I don't know how valid this information is! Sometimes we get information on here
that is total BS but I never dismiss anything I read because there is just so little
we really know about this universe, our reality and perception! This is the reason
why I never accept anything or dismiss anything 100%. The truth is we never know.
Even when we are absolutely 100% positive of something! Maybe that's when we
should be most weary of our beliefs!
Be vigilant of everything because we never know what is possible!

This story hasnt been "hidden". I heard it years ago.

It is scientific fact that the longer and healthier a persons hair is, the more sensitive the follicles are. Thus, longer hair makes you more sensitive.

Haha! She would laugh in my face! She's 23 years my junior as it is!

That's why she always uses that trick, cause she knows it's a worry of mine, that I won't always look this young. As it is people think we are the same age, but I can see the subtle signs coming on, especially in the last couple of years.

Top predators such as big cats only have long whiskers for close proximity sensory use if long hair was of any other sensory advantage I’m sure they would have long hair all over.

The only other great ape that grows really long hair is the adult Orangutans and they not a prey species they do not hunt and rarely engage in combat so I find it hard to see why they would grow long hair for sensory reasons.

Long hair seems to have the advantage of retaining heat around the brain as its main use but it also provides camouflage and somewhat of a barrier to biting insects. In wet climates it draws rain water away from the scalp which is probably why Orangutans have long hair as their rainforest habitat is wetter than that of the other great apes in the jungles of Africa.

Good thread PurpleDog..

My good lady suggested I grow my hair, after I showed her a picture of me from 1980 at a Genesis concert.. I thought, why not!.. I dont know about all the sciencey stuff and that, but since I have not cut the head grass for about 5 or 6 months, I actually feel better about myself and people say I look ten years younger..lol.. Also I have noticed random women smiling at me..

Pics or it didn't happen.. Has it is now..

Never having short hair again..

Yyyyyyou cradle robber ! No wait I mean, Yyyyyou stud !
Now I got the whole pic. Pretty soon you aren't gonna
be able to grow long hair. It's all gonna be gone from running
your fingers thru it all the time. All stressed out, losing sleep all
over the house.


Pics or didn't happen.

Here is a post from 2010 about the long hair story.
It's interesting.


www.abovetopsecret.com...




The Story:
"This information about hair has been hidden from the public since the Viet Nam War .

Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and/or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Viet Nam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.

In the early nineties, Sally [name changed to protect privacy] was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Most of them had served in Viet Nam.

Sally said, " I remember clearly an evening when he came back to our apartment on Doctor's Circle carrying a thick official looking folder in his hands. Inside were hundreds of pages of certain studies commissioned by the government. He was in shock from the contents. What he read in those documents completely changed his life. From that moment on my conservative middle of the road husband grew his hair and beard and never cut them again. What is more, the VA Medical center let him do it, and other very conservative men in the staff followed his example. As I read the documents, I learned why. It seems that during the Viet Nam War special forces in the war department had sent undercover experts to comb American Indian Reservations looking for talented scouts, for tough young men trained to move stealthily through rough terrain. They were especially looking for men with outstanding, almost supernatural, tracking abilities. Before being approached, these carefully selected men were extensively documented as experts in tracking and survival.

With the usual enticements, the well proven smooth phrases used to enroll new recruits, some of these indian trackers were then enlisted. Once enlisted, an amazing thing happened. Whatever talents and skills they had possessed on the reservation seemed to mysteriously disappear, as recruit after recruit failed to perform as expected in the field.

Serious casualities and failures of performance led the government to contract expensive testing of these recruits, and this is what was found.

When questioned about their failure to perform as expected, the older recruits replied consistantly that when they received their required military haircuts, they could no longer 'sense' the enemy, they could no longer access a 'sixth sense' , their 'intuition' no longer was reliable, they couldn't 'read' subtle signs as well or access subtle extrasensory information. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I'm growing hair where there shouldn't be any hair and I'm losing hair where I want hair. But a fine woman told me that all the real heroes throughout history were balding. I think she's BS me but I'll take it.


I was once told that a man going bald in the front of his head is a great thinker, a man going bald in the back of his head is a great lover, and a man going bald all over thinks he's a great lover...

... so I grew a beard. That'll teach 'em to try and categorize me!

Again with this? Really tired of this exact same article getting posted again and again and again.

If you actually believe this tripe you are part of the reason ATS is failing as an educational and awareness media.

Hair is keratin. Nerve cells are complex multi part electrical signal processors. In a very limited sense, yes the hair on your arms or in your ear can respond to environmental stimuli and send info to the brain. But it is not externalized nerves. It does not transmit or receive psychic energy. It is made of dead cells which do nothing.

There is no science to this article, and not a shred of evidence.


That's like saying that a house is just dead trees heaped in a pile.

I've been paying attention to this all day, ever since I read it this morning before going to work, and have come to realize that I can feel every stray current and eddy of air around me. I can tell when someone is behind me because the air changes. I think there's more to it than you are willing to admit.

Longer hair, having more mass and surface area, is more prone to register disturbances and transmit them to the nerves.

I used to keep mine tied up in a ponytail when I was in the woods to prevent stray hair from getting enmeshed with stray brush. Granted, it wasn't 5 feet long.

Rather than a hindrance to stealth, I believe it was an enhancement. For stealth to work right, you move when the rest of the world moves, so as to be less noticeable. What moves the rest of the world in the woods is usually the wind. You move when the wind blows, and are less noticeable thereby - moreover, you move AS the wind moves, not counter to it. Feeling it when it immediately changes would seem to me to be something that would aid in that process.

Apologies to those who have seen this before……….. I hadn't and I didn't do a search just posted up what I had read……

It did make me think though that maybe just maybe we, as a human species have evolved to understand our natural environment more and it's only because we surround ourselves with our new found wonder of technology that natures gift is potentially being missed…

As far as the military is concerned, long hair would be worse rather than better.

1. long hair becomes dirtier easier. And it can host undesirable things such as lice.
2. It may impair your vision. Long hair can get into your eyes, and may even reduce your peripheral vision.
3. In the event of a hand-to-hand struggle, your hair could be used against you. Typically in a fight it's best to try and control the other persons head and neck. Grabbing hold of their hair would make it easier to get the upper hand.
4. Having a long beard or head of hair could cause problems should you need to use something like a gas mask.
5. It may also impair your hearing slightly. sound waves may be a little harder to reach your ears if there is layers of hair in the way. Wearing a helmet at the same time would further disadvantage you. It may not be significant, but it would seem to cause a small amount of sound resistance.
6. It has the potential to get caught or tangled on something. Such as your helmet strap, or inside of a bush that your trying to hide in.

I don't understand how your nervous system would be connected to your hair. Just because your hair is in your head, along with your brain, doesn't mean they act as some sort of antenna for the brain.

The only advantage to shaving your head is that your hair doesn't get dirty when your head is in your ass.

Makes it easier to pull out of your ass too, though most seldom do.

I don't think that apologies are necessary.
I think that we need to realize that we have head/facial hair for A REASON - which is not well-understood. Your presentation was worthwhile, and something to think about.


Since we are different in that way, there must be a reason. I think sensitivity/the whisker effect makes very good sense.
