I thought "this article is perfect for LHC". We are the nexus of all things hairy. :rockerdud

Up until now, I had been aware of long hair only on animals and plants. This is the first time I have seen long hair on minerals. :cheese:

The most impressive aspect is how much ground the volcano hairs cover. My shed hairs could never cover that much. :thudpile:

Could it be the volcano is shedding hair, because it's molten?
