How long are you able to claim you are merely "balding"? I think I have passed any standard of decency by mow.

We can use mathematical induction to prove that all men are bald.

1. If a man has no hair on his head he is bald.
2. Assume that for some k, a man with k hairs on his head is bald. (Fair enough: most bald men have some hair).
3. If a man with k hairs oh his head is bald, what about a man with k+1 hairs? (Surely adding a single hair doesn't change the fact.)

Therefore, no matter how many hairs a man has on his head, he is bald.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Great, so I'm not alone. Was worried there for a moment.

When someone looks at you bald guys they don't care how you refer to your noggin.

That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

I think when you look at the top of the head, and it's all horizon and skin, you're bald. Before that, you're just balding.
