They say you lose about 90% of your body heat through your head....

But how?? For most people (girls), your head is the hairiest part of you....why wouldn't your body heat escape from some other, less insulated part of your body? And if hair doesn't help to keep your body heat in, what makes hats so special?? What have they got that hair doesn't? -- And does that mean that bald people are cooler in the summer, since having no hair apparently speeds up this body-heat-losing process?

And where exactly does this heat go? Is the air directly above our heads slightly warmer than other air?

It's questions like these I often ponder while walking home from the bus stop in the dark. I'm not really looking for answers...because pondering is good, and the need to ponder is even better.

There, put that in your pipe and smoke it.
