... and Kosh says I look younger, LoL!

... and while we're on the topic of hair ...
1991: Me. Seated at my desk in my dinky little dorm room, studying. My roommate is also seated at her desk, also studying. Our backs are facing each other. My attention wanders off, and I play with my hair while trying to read the words in front of me. My eyes travel to the hair I'm playing with. I notice hair of different thicknesses: small medium large, or light medium and dark colored, and wonder about them. Then I notice split ends - aarrgghhh! I reach for the pair of scissors, and start snipping away at the nasty ends. A few minutes later I realise I hear the same snip! snip! from behind me - my roommate has also been distracted the same way, LoL!
~1998: Me. In front of the mirror in the ladies' bathroom in the project site office. I'm supposed to be observing how an internal audit is carried out. Instead I'm bored to tears, and keep going to the bathroom to wash my face with cold water. One of those visits, I study my hair in the mirror, searching for rambut gatal (literal translation: itchy hair, LoL! A "proper" translation would be rogue hair, I suppose), having recently learnt of that concept from my housemate. I spend the better part of my time at the office not auditing or observing, but plucking out those thick dark uneven hairs from the crown of my head.
fast forward to current times: every once in a while I'll spend some time in front of the mirror hunting for them rogues. I have to keep myself in check though, because I can see how easy it is to just keep on a-pluckin'... wouldn't want to turn up all trichotillomanic, do I? But, you ask, just how much difference is there between my normal and rogue hair? Ah, good question! I just so happened to have snapped some photographic evidence recently... see for yourself:
Going from top to bottom you can see medium small & large ... and yes, the "large" is just *one* hair. I wasn't kidding when I said dark & thick!
Have you noticed similar variety of hairs on *your* head?
