Since I know of no method proven to "reject the little buggers", that tells me that you are either better informed or more gullible than I. I hope it's the former: what method do you refer to? I am, alas, one of those for whom Minoxodil is ineffective (though it did give me a slightly fuzzy crown, it wasn't cosmetically useful hair, and certainly not worth $50 a month).

I am willing to suffer the beasts if the alternative is as drastic and expensive as surgery, but if there's something more reasonable that has valid clinical evidence of effectiveness, I'd use it.

ObExtropy: Anyone know of any correlation between cognitive function and cranial hair? It certainly seems to be a prevalent stereotype that smart guys are bald, though Newton and Einstein are obvious counterexamples.
