Halfdan Skjerning has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or/and Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFHCfSS). He says:
I study Health-Related Quality of Life in children and adolescents with celiac disease. I am fascinated by the resilience or stubbornness of the beard. When trimmed down, it keeps growing out again – it’s like it doesn’t learn, or maybe it has a will of its own. Equally intriguing are the reactions of other people towards the beard; some want to touch it and look upon it with envy, while others are intimidated by it. You can tell a lot about people from their reactions to a beard.
