Shaving my head, beard, and eyebrows.

In Shaving my head, I announced that I would be having my head shaved tomorrow, but not my beard.

In Shaving my head (and maybe my beard), I offered to let my beard be shaved if the donations came up to $1000.  When that goal was reached one of my colleagues asked how much for my eyebrows, and I suggested hitting $2000.

Well that goal has been reached also, and one of my students asked what they could get for $3000.  I said that they could shave my chest hair if we hit $3000 by 1:00pm tomorrow (Wednesday 25 Oct 2017), but that is as far as I’m going.

  1. Shaved eyebrows can look creepy and can scare young children. I would advise against it.

    • Too late! they raised the $2000, so the eyebrows went! I don’t think that is makes much difference in my case, as my eyebrows were mostly hidden by my glasses frames anyway. I’ve always thought that Edward Teller eyebrows were scarier—google “edward teller eyebrows” to see what I mean.

      Incidentally one of the teachers at my wife’s school has alopecia and has no facial hair, but he doesn’t scare children—indeed he is quite well liked—so I’m not sure that the lack of eyebrows is necessarily that scary.
