    In my case, that'd be a fairly small screen.

    Unless you are both utterly bald from top to toe, that's no guarantee. The article did not specify where this hair came from.

    I'm more interested to know how much hair is needed per screen, and what percentage of the finished product actually comprises just the hair.
    If it's something like 50kgs of hair to make up only 2% of a screen, for example, it's not exactly that impressive.

    I also question how much hair the source dude is sending to landfill, that it's somehow a massive improvement, given that hair is biodegradable.... and if this dude is sending it to landfill, why our customers can't do the same instead of clogging the drains up with theirs!!!

    Sadly, more elsewhere than the roof garden.

    No, not there.

    Nostrils, ears, flipping everywhere except my roof. Age! Pah.

    I used to suggest the bald 'spot' was the wife's thumbprint, but now it's more like a whole handprint.


    P.S. I'll stop now before I totally derail this thread .... and now that the mental image is seared in your minds.

    I have 3 hairs on my chest, that's all that ever managed to grow on my granite, not quite sure about the other side, but i assume it is just as few, i am definitely not a silver back like some people with a stronger monkey genome.

    I think i will scavenge my old mother, her hair are the whitest white i have ever seen, but when she was younger she was on the other end of the spectrum.
    as we all know the speed of light depend greatly on the medium it pass thru, the fiber optic glass cables slow light down with 20% or so.

    So would you be able to use shampoo to clean your screen?

    Imagine someone asks you what your screen is made of and you reply in all seriousness "ball hair"
