OK ~ I agree that my great nephew, Jet, is way cuter than me. Our family is split though on who has more hair, can you help us decide so we can be one :) HAPPY:) family again? ;)

Very handsome little guy -- you do have the mostach going for you -- so do you measure hair/per surface area -- because that may catch you up (you may have to include mostach/nose hair), but if you go by shear content and coverage, the little guy wins!! Congratulations to your family on the cute little man!!

Tough call on the hair gary... yours may be a bit longer but his seems more evenly distributed.

and I think there are a couple "way"s missing...way WAY cuter. :p

Are we talking percentage of coverage? Surface area of head covered? Total hair volume?

depending on your answer.

% coverage of head - Jet

Surface area of head covered - you, but only because your head has more surface area, thus more square inches of scalp to cover. If we talk about ratios, Jet totally wins (see first answer)

Total hair volume - you again, but because your hair appears to be longer. But Jet wins in the length-to-head-size ratio.

I have a feeling i didn't help much...

mandalinn - how about rate of growth? Because clearly gary has had ..what was that again..53(?) years to grow that skimpy coverage and jet has had only a few months.

Jet is flying along at something like 1/4-1/2 inch a year, gary is sputtering along at 1/4 inch per decade.

Ok, I have no opinion on the matter at hand, I just think Jet is just about the coolest name you can give a person.

An excellent point! Jet wins on rate of growth and percentage of coverage. Gary wins in other categories only because he has a big head :-P

Gary - you have more FACIAL hair, whereas Jet wins hands down on the cuteness and fluffy baby hair factor! ;)

Are you going to start singing Jet by Wings at him? Oooo-ooo-oooo-oooo-oooo-oooo-oooo-oo-oo! (great running song btw...) [/ramble]

Big head. You said it!!! Too funny, Gary. But I have to agree with what everyone has said.

Happy Valentines to everyone! :val1:

Jet is an awesome name! Is it a nickname, or short for anything?

Am I the only one who thinks Gary has more hair? Perhaps the coarseness of adult hair makes it appear thicker.

I dunno who's got more hair, but I keep telling my grandpa that babies always come out looking like their grandpas....bald and toothless.

Gary, you have beautiful eyes! You definitely win on that one.

Hair? Hmmmmm. Didn't you just tell us that you went and had yours weed whacked off? If so, then wait a month and post new pics.

What is all that on the credenza? It looks like a row of shoes. Do you not wear shoes in the house? We try to limit them because we spent a mint on reclaiming our hardwood floor!

I love the name, too. Didn't John Travolta name his son Jet?

GEE THANKS :thanks: ..HOWEVER! I have 13 more days to go on that one!

Angie says I am always "sputtering" ;)

Ok, I have no opinion on the matter at hand, I just think Jet is just about the coolest name you can give a person.

Hey Kiddo ~ what do you think of his mom's name SUNSHINE or his aunt's SUMMER DAWN? No, my sister wasn't a hippie!

EL CABAZON! And to think I named my daughter Amanda! ;)

It was that EDUKATHUN you had here in California.

I'll give ya the cuteness factor FRUSTRATED, but wouldn't Band on The "RUN" be better?

Big head. You said it!!! Too funny, Gary. But I have to agree with what everyone has said.

OF COURSE you would! But I have seen your DH's legs...you got nutin' to say girl! ;)

Happy Valentines to everyone! :val1:

No, I think I have more hair too. :)

I don't care what they look like ~ talk my kids into getting me one! :carrot:

SERIOUSLY TIKI, do you really think my family CARES about my feelings? :hug:

Oh great! Now we're going to have to decide who has better teeth in a few years! :D

Around 10 grand already in my mouth MARE. Maybe I can win by default!

Gary, you have beautiful eyes! You definitely win on that one.

THANK-YOU :) You should have seen them when I was a kid.

Hair? Hmmmmm. Didn't you just tell us that you went and had yours weed whacked off? If so, then wait a month and post new pics.

GOOD IDEA!

What is all that on the credenza? It looks like a row of shoes. Do you not wear shoes in the house? We try to limit them because we spent a mint on reclaiming our hardwood floor!

Mare, when the carpet was new, about 3 years ago, we did take our shoes off...but my 2 golden retrievers broke it in...seems they don't really care if they have mud on their feet! We still do keep our shoes there, but honestly, one of our dogs, Reba, collects shoes through out the house, garage, closets, etc. So we just pile them up there until the rightful owners puts them where they belong.

I love the name, too. Didn't John Travolta name his son Jet?

:shrug: :shrug: :shrug: :shrug: :shrug:

Seriously PHANTASTICA Jet is my nephew's name, not short for anything...last name...RHOADS!

Thanks for all your input gals ~ It was fun!

I have a friend who named her son Tuff.

His last name?

Love.

I kid you not, this child will go through life named Tuff Love.

I'm secretly convinced she has promised her child to the WWF when he's of age.

Hey JuneBug ~ When I was a kid we lived next door to a family that had 3 kids ~ Stormy ~ Frosty and Blizzard! I couldn't tell you if that was their real names, I was only about 8, but that's what they went by.

Tuff Love better start LIFTING now! WOW!

Gary: You have the early lead, but I suspect he'll pass you up in no time!!

As for nose hairs....one never really 'loses' the hair on their heads...they just reappear in other, less desirable places! Like in your ears, nose, down your neck, etc.

Oh sure SHELBY :yikes: and have you gals kick me off 3FC for the entire summer...no :fr: freakin' way! What would I do for entertainment on those long hot August nights?

Gary--my Daddy told me his view on hair loss in men....

When you have a receding hairline...you're sexy

When you have the bald spot going on...you are a thinker

When it meets in the middle..you just thought you were sexy!!!

Jet's got a rock star name so in a few years I think he will be doing the long hair thing and definitely surpass you!! Though you could do the zztop beard to go along with the moustache!!

Yeah but JULES What if you just have a 5head.....I passed forehead several years back?

Jet's daddy is a skateboarder/drum player! And a pretty darn good kid too! So, with a dad like that and a mom named SUNSHINE...well...can't wait for the nmaes of the next kid! My brother in law told me that this was the only nmae that they though was even close to normal of the ones the kids picked out, for their first grandchild.
