Fireside Topic: How do you handle hair loss (going bald)?

It happened several years ago. After getting a haircut, the first in quite a while, I noticed something looked different. Had she taken off too much? No. My hair was thinning. I always had a full, thick set of hair and never considered it might thin out, at least not at such a ...

Choose your scenario: End of Civilized Society or Super Strict Gun Laws. You have to choose one rifle caliber to see you and yours through the tough times ahead. What’s it going to be?
