Alexander Mastin has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:
Having submitted an application some years ago to this prestigious organisation and failing to get in, I have since fastidiously and intensively worked on developing a collection of hair which befits both the Luxuriant Flowing Hair and Luxuriant Facial Hair Clubs (with a provisional application for the Former Hair Club in due course, I am sure). I am a veterinary epidemiologist working at the University of Salford in England, investigating Echinococcus tapeworms in domestic dogs in China and Central Asia. Which basically means I am a professional collector of dog faeces. I like to think that the luxuriance of my hair complements the glamour of my job.
