Robbos Weird and Wacky Facts !

Longest Male Beard:
Back in 1997, Shamsher Singh of Punjab, India, had his beard officially measured at an impressive 1.83 m (6 ft) from the end of chin to the tip. This is the longest beard on a living male.
The longest beard ever was grown by Hans Langseth of Norway, whose whiskers stretched an incredible 5.33 m (17 6 in) when measured upon his death in Kensett, Iowa, in 1927. The beard was presented to the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, in 1967.

Longest Female Beard:
Vivian Wheeler of Wood River, Illinois, USA, grew a full beard after the death of her mother in 1990. The longest strand from the follicle to the tip of hair was measured at 27.9 cm (11 in) in 2000.


Some random facts about beards:

Number of inches whiskers grow per year: 5.5.
Length of beard an average man would grow if he never shaved: 27.5 feet.
Amount of time an average man spends shaving: 3350 hours.
Number of whiskers on the face of the average man: 30,000.

"Werewolf syndrome" or hypertrichosis:
Where even the women of the family are covered with a light to medium coat of hair, while the men have thick hair on every inch of their bodies, apart from their hands and feet. Far out, how about that.

According to a study in Quebec:
The hypothesis according to which male common baldness has developed in the human species as a compensation for the growth of a beard in order to achieve heat loss has been tested In 100 clean-shaven men. During light hyperthermia the evaporation rate on the bald scalp was 2 to 3 times higher than on the hairy scalp. The results support the hypothesis that male baldness is a thermoregulatory compensation for the growth of a beard in adults. - No shit, they needed a study to tell us that?

ZZTop Facts:
The only guy without a beard in ZZTOP has the surname Beard. I've always known they had class.

Pogonophobia or fear of beards:
refers to an abnormal and persistent fear of beards. Symptoms typically include shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and overall feelings of dread, although everyone experiences pogonophobia in their own way and may have different symptoms.
