Hairy Situation in Washington, DC

News out of Washington, DC that does not involve Donald Trump's hair.

Apparently, parts of the Washington, DC metro rail line have become so caked with layers of human hair that it presents a fire hazard.

“I was flabbergasted — flabbergasted — at the amount of hair that’s in the Metro,” said Brian Sherlock, a safety specialist for Amalgamated Transit Union.

“Hair literally comes off of people and off of clothing and gets sucked up."

The hair gets sucked up into the tunnel, and collects on insulators that house the electric third rail. The felt-like lining is 1/8 inches thick in some places, and could pose a fire risk by trapping heat.

“The amount of debris is just beyond vulgar to think of,” Sherlock said.

And the Password is....


Poseidon's Underworld has an adorable post filled with screen grabs of lots of glamorously coiffed dames that graced that game show back in those good old mid-century days. 

Here's but one of many you'll find.


I'm especially fond of Joan Fontaine's glorious Haddasah flip.

Movember

It's Movember. Are you growing a moustache?



Grow a moustache this month and do your part to raise awareness for men's health. You can shave it off at the end of the month. Or you can leave it forever and, like Salvador Dali's moustache (above) it may remain intact forever!
