Can they really choose freely or is the style assigned by occupation and/or social standing?  Also, if they choose a career in porn, do they get to dye their hair like in Japan?

On another note, what is up with the gestapo tv?  Why would anyone watch it voluntarily, or is that the point?

I love stories of horror and oppression out of North Korea, because next week I know I'm going to see "What We Don't Know About Super-Secretive North Korea" stories.

From what I could see of the hairstyles, most are quite fetching. However, the crowded sidebar covered the image and I couldn't see them all.

do the women have to wear red lipstick?
do the men have to smile all squinty?
 
2013-02-21 08:59:20 PM  
They all look alike.


Maybe they should add some dye options.

Apparently the Republican Party is advising N Korea on hairstyle management.

Did you ever notice that Republicans dress and do their hair like it's the 50s?

WTF, no peasant braids for the ladies?

Maybe it's too hippy.

Being that this is a hair thread, I am obligated to myself to ask my fellow Farkers if anybody has any sort of suggestions or success stories in regards to halting or regrowing hair.

I started losing my hair a couple of years ago, mostly at the crown and temples and I was only 27 years old when it started.  I have been able to slow it down with Nioxin treatment but it's nothing to be excited about.  The hair still thins and I have finally reached the buzz it off point a few weeks back.  I wouldn't mind it if my ears didn't stick out so much but they do and I think I look like a retard without a hat.

Any advice would be appreciated.  It is highly depressing and I have lost so much self-esteem and, not to mention, many relationships because of it.

From the few documentaries Ive watched, Most North Koreans (at least the ones with a roof and electricity) all have TVs and they only have one or two channels (Dear Leader and Dear Leader).  Everyone needs some background noise.

You have never noticed that Asians don't seem to age as badly as... any other group of people? I spend hours trying to figure it out.  I think it has to do with:

Having a darker skin tone (darker than Europeans) but still avoiding the sun.
Eating vegetables?

I have no idea.

I would sympathize with them, if only they would stop screaming about killing us constantly.  Kinda kills the pity party with all that.  Maybe if they could tone down the whole 'hot nuclear death to America' talk I could start giving a shiat about whether they have more than 10 haircut choices or were starving or not.  But yea, here we are.


Yes I know govt does not equal populous but if the people don't agree with the populous, you know what they can do?  Well most places vote but in the very least if enough of them are upset they can do something about it.

Do they seem upset with their government, no they seem like beaten dogs too skittish to do shiat but chant "dear leader" over and over?  Yea farkem, and fark their haircuts.

I read a book detailing NK life as told by defectors, and one guy got the idea from watching TV. Seems the TV's are just ordinary TV's that are set to receive the Dear Leader channel, and the Glorious Leader channel. Inside on the circuit board are the buttons to change the channel; the case in front of them has little holes where the exterior buttons would normally go, and these are covered by a government seal. Anyway, this guy found that by poking a needle through the seal, he could reach the buttons on the board and start watching SK television. 

His mental world got flipped upside down, and he eventually made his way to the south.

Well, I dont know how far gone your hair is, but Rogaine helped 2 of my friends maintain and actually regrow some of their hair. They started the treatment in their early 30's. The problem is, if you stop the treatment you are going to lose the hair. They will be taking that shiat for the rest of their lives if they don't want to go bald.

Thanks for the thought, Igor -- I'm actually a Dermatology resident, so I counsel people on hairloss daily. :)

Being bald actually makes it a lot easier to counsel my male patients on the importance of sunscreen use on the scalp. I can say things like "guys like you and I ... " instead of "bald men such as yourself ..."

They also can't grow beards well.  Unless they know kung-fu.  Which is odd.

NP, As a Dermatology resident, what do you think about Rogaine? Yeah, you need to use sunscreen on your scalp unless you wear a hat. My brother has learned this. I imagine relating to your patients makes things a bit easier for them.
