why I shaved my head and beard

1. Because I will jump off a cliff if all the cool kids are doing it.

2. Because it's a gesture of solidarity with patients and prisoners and those who must shave their head.

3. Because my heroes have always included mad scientists.

4. Because it is good to be reminded that if you lose your hair, you'll still look fine.

5. Because it's spring in Arizona.

6. Because it's a symbol of rebirth.

And therefore, two quick pics.

2. Obligatory author making face:
