Dear Friends, I hope you don't mind me showing you these two contrasting photos from Reuters and I hope that Reuters - see Links - doesn't mind me sharing them with you (for those of you who are too young to know or too old to remember, Toni was a well advertised hair-styling product).

Now they say that beauty is only skin deep. We humans tend to forget that, under the hair, makeup, skin, flesh, muscle and tissue is a most unattractive skull! Sorry Yorick, fore sooth!

Image the model intact from the neck down but sporting only her naked skull above. Her attractiveness would surely plummet! Although there are a few people, it's called jumping bones isn't, I won't go there.

Of course it is fashionable these days for some men to shave their heads (even Parliamentarians) which does tend to reveal the outline of the hollow skull. Of course, there are outlines and outlines. Some men just shouldn't shave their heads because they look positively deformed.

Inside the hollowness of the skull resides the brain but, judged by the poor behaviour of certain hollow individuals (Tony, John, Olmert, etc), that is not always the case. In Bush's case, clearly there is only a vacuous vacuum. It astounds me that his skull doesn't, I won't go there.

Anyway, when next you're lusting after some handsome hunk or some hauntingly beautiful actress who doesn't even know you exist, stop feeling disconsolate, inadequate and rejected and think for a moment about their inner depths.

But don't go there for longer than a moment! Please...

Well said, albeit in a certainly different way!:)

"If you want to know what your wife will look like, look at her Mom."

But...until we reach a certain age, the blood supply to the brain is perilously low, when dealing with such weighty matters!:)

Poor blood pressure to the brain has been the downfall of many a young man! Nature designed it that way.
