The world is full of unanswered questions!
Right now I have a burning question I can’t seem to find an answer for …
Why do big toes have hairs?
Now I haven’t done a massive survey on this and collected loads of data, but I have asked friends. Most women I know (which isn’t many) confess to having under five big toe hairs,
I myself have three. Does that make me a freak!
I am not sure how many men have as I’m thinking it may be slightly offensive & weird to ask straight out. I may set up a no shoe and sock policy in my house using hidden foot CCTV to be able to get some real statics collected. Just gotta get some men to enter through the threshold, need to think …
Also the quality of hair, mine are soft and fine but a woman friend said hers are thick which leads to other questions …
Are we born with it?
Wondering about texture, how extreme does it differ and why?
Do they go grey in old age?
Can your big toe suddenly go bald?
Anyhow I digress … Why do big toes have hair, it can’t be for protection because three hairs aren’t going to do anything to protect. In fact if my foot were covered in hair and a car rolled over it, I am 100% sure it would still hurt loads.
There are no openings so no need for protection there either. They aren’t long enough to style to funk up a pedicure or go to a big toe hair stylist.
Visualising new movie … Hair raising performance ‘The Three Hair Musketeers’ coming to a big toe near you!
Why oh why are they there?
Other hair bits I can understand and can come up with sensible & novel answers, for example hair on fingers is to help when you use your hand to wipe your nose (if you haven’t got a tissue handy). It creates a anti slip surface for the mucous to be wiped away discreetly.
We know eyebrows are the umbrellas on our faces.
Leg & hair arm are thermostat control.
I shall stop there! 🙂
Would love to hear any pearls of wisdom you may be able to offer, I am certain there is an answer I just can’t see it …
