Think about it. Somehow your arm hair knows to only get so long and then stop, however your head hair will keep growing and growing seemingly without respite.

Why is this?

Can you imagine if other hair never stopped. Imagine Pubic hair that kept growing and growing. There would be Pube barber shops, possibly.

I betbyou can get some decent info if you look it up. Pube barber shops would be pretty hilarious though.

My girlfriend demands that I get rid off all hair on my body that isn't on my head. And honestly, I don't mind having it all gone.

Waxing is a motherfucker, though.

This needs to be done.


Please disregard all of my pre-2013 posts. I was young and borderline retarded.

It keeps growing inwards into your brain.

It's mainly because you shed hair. The hair on your arm isn't the same hair that's been there for the past 5 years. Though you still do shed hair on your head, just not as often.

You see, this is why I love Newgrounds, I get such random questions asked that no one in their right mind would ask.

Anyways, the hair follicles on your arms are programmed to stop growing every couple of months, so the hair on your arms stays short.

I guess that makes sense but I find it hard to believe I shed hair that often. I mean I notice a hair fall out maybe every other day or two from a random part of my body. I think I'd see it a lot more. Hair growth length just seems to consistent in size to be base on just randomly falling out.

Basically I'm saying fuck your science.
