OK, to change it from food a tad to myth, which is what I considered the topic to be in the first place, not food, but ni modo, I understand why it was shifted here to the food forum. Logic happens. But, bald babies? Perhaps someone will shift it back to the General Forum.
It is also believed in Mexico, certainly by my painfully representative Mexican relatives, that it is important to buzz-cut babies a couple of times, in the first year or so, in order to guarantee a full head of hair as an adult. I do not have to ask others about that because I know it to be total nonsense, a myth.
What this boils down to is you gotta good-looking kid on your hands, and then one morning you gotta ugly hairless one. It grows back, and he looks good again, and then one day you see he has turned into an ugly hairless one again. This happens three or four times, and then it is over. The locals are then convinced he will have a good head of hair on him as life progresses.
I am in no way bad-mouthing you bald guys, so do not get miffed. Many of you are quite sexy. I mean look at Yul Brynner and Kojak. There are others. But it is not a good look on a baby.
We need a myth forum. I know a good person for moderator.
