“Baldness- It's not just for your grandpa anymore!”

~ Movie from health class on Baldness

In mathematics, baldness is the set of all points on a male human head which are bereft of male human hair.

Bald spot theorem[edit]

Advanced vector calculus proves that it is impossible to comb all hairs on a male human head in the same general direction, even with the application of copious quantities of superhold styling gel. As a result, there exists (at least) one point on every male human head of which the hair growing from out of all surrounding points spirals outwards. This particular point (technically termed a "bald spot" in advanced barberology[1]) lacks hair, because the sun shines there without mercy, like in a lifeless desert. Therefore, all men possess (at least) one bald spot, especially Socrates.

They will also be A HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE deciding factor in the upcoming election. Have you SEEN the debates? "Joe the Plumber"? Bald people are huuuuuuge!

Some also theorise that bald people are decendents of the egga-kegga-king, for he was born an egg and as such no hair was made.

Proof that all men are bald[edit]

As of April 2006, Homer Simpson possesses three (and only three) hairs on his head. Also, Homer is bald (by definition). Let . If a man has one hair more than a man that is bald, then is also bald[2]. Therefore, by induction through the infinitely many finite ordinals, all men with either the same amount of, or more hair than, Homer () are bald.

Unfortunately, this stunning and counterintuitive proof leaves a small number of cases left to consider, namely , , , and . Since all men with hair have a bald spot (see above), it follows that a man with no hair has no bald spot. As a result, since has no hair, he himself also lacks a bald spot. Thus, is not bald. By induction through the finite ordinals less than 3, both and are also not bald, in spite of the fact that their comb-overs are totally lame and we laugh derisively at them[3]. However, we dare not laugh at 's comb over, because is God Almighty Himself, the Infinitely Hairy One who wouldst smite us for acting so wickedly.
