North Korean hairstyle guidelines

Found this link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4157121.stm whilst trawling the net, where North Korea has launched an ad campaign against long hair. My favourite part of the article, because it's just so stupid:

It stressed the "negative effects" of long hair on "human intelligence development", noting that long hair "consumes a great deal of nutrition" and could thus rob the brain of energy.


How the hell does long hair consume any more nutrition when hair comes out of the scalp dead? I'm looking for some "gotcha" phrase. I can't find one. The mind boggles.

Well for some ppl, managing hair is a daily chore. This can lead to excessive amounts of "brain juice" [scientific term] being diverted from other more positive pursuits. This is espescially noticable during the adolescent years.

Hmmmm... thankyou Mr Scientist. That could have been a point they took into consideration. You seem to be experienced on the subject. But did they stop to think about Anime characters? There are some pretty cluey Anime characters out there!

Clearly, you've never had a bad hair day.
Only people who have bad hair days on a regular basis, understand the 'draining' aspect of haircare.
