In 5 years we will all look 10-15 years younger


#1

I woke up today and realized that baldness will be cured in the next several years. I’m convinced of it. And in 5 years we will all be having HM injections in the same way people have Botox injections. IOW, in 5 years all of us will look 10-15 years younger. Fantastic.

BTW, below is another post from Dr Rassman on HM. Keep in mind just a few years ago he kept saying that it’d be about “10-20 years” for HM, now it’s just “years”, he’s just “a bit” skeptical, and he doesn’t even doubt the final outcome. I love it when the skeptics change their tune:

“I don’t know enough details about Intercytex to comment beyond what I’ve already written. My present thoughts are that it may take years to prove and then have approved for clinical use, the final treatments that Intercytex is working on. I am a bit skeptical on the schedules that are projected (maybe not the final outcome), but I frankly don’t know nor do I believe everything I hear or read. DHT will not impact hair that is not genetically impaired, so if the hair that Intercytex is such a hair, then it will be resistant to the impact of DHT.”


Now compare this with Rassman’s earlier statements.

For example, here’s Dr Rassman pessimistic analysis back in March of 2007:
“Just be patient and we all should know the result of the research in less than 10 years one way or another (at least that is what is being projected for a solution timeline).”

And here he is in February of 2007, even more pessimistic:
“My opinion runs better than 10 years before it is available, and another 10 years to actually perfect it. Let’s see who is right.”

And here he is in 2006, obviously selling his hair transplants:
"Personally, I do not believe that I will be unemployed for years yet as I do not believe that hair transplantation is going to go away anytime soon. If you are balding, ask yourself the following question: Am I willing to wait for years, possibly decades, for the best solution to hair loss and remain bald during my youth and most productive years just to avoid a simple surgery?


Oh, and this is also interesting… Rassman in 2006:
“I stay right up front in this process and stay in touch with everyone doing the various types of research.”

Could he be changing his tune because he knows a little bit more than we know? (I actually rather doubt it, but who knows…)

All the best,
BB

+1 lol

in 5 years we’ll either be dead or look pretty much five years older, with or without hair :o

i I do not understand your happy in waiting for more 5 years to come hm. with all the study already made and shown facts we cannot wait for more as much time. I believe exactly that hm will come more in delaying in 2009 at least in England. for aderans or intercytex, what we cannot is to still wait for more as much time.


#5

I think 5 years from now is a conservative estimate, so I agree with you. 2010 seems most likely to me, with 2009 a rather optimistic scenario. Regardless, any of these timeframes will make me a happy man. In 5 years (or sooner) I will look drastically younger. IOW, my baldness/balding will just be a temporary phase, in the same way a normal-sized man gets really fat and then diets for 3-4 years and returns to his previous weight. Really, why get stressed about something if it’s just a temporary period? In fact, why not even get a wig – in the same way cancer patients temporarily get wigs during their chemotherapy? Or why not just shave it off, tell people you’re joining a buddhist monastery or whatever – test out the new look for a few years since it’s only going to be temporary?

God bless science!

You wish, you jackass! Just like evolution said, you’ll be older and balder and probably yammering unmercifully on HAIRSITE about the newest wave of baldness cures! Just do yourself and us a favor and get yourself a good mach3 razor, some KingofShave gel, skin off the couple strands that are probably combed over your bulbous forehead from an eighth of an inch above your left ear and go OUTSIDE! Like, get a life, man! BostonBaldy, you seriously irritate the living shit out of me. One day you’re boo hooing about something and then the next you’re caught up in some new nonsense. Bubbling over with some ridiculous enthusiastic post about a baldness cure. You’re the biggest sucker out there.

I sure wish some of us could “get a life” like you. Instead of sharing experiences that have some feeling like they’re in need of covering some emotional void, we could just run attacks all day long about how pathetic everyone is that has this anxiety do to whatever their situation may be. That’s what this forum needs- more armchair psychologists like you. What a fu*king douche.

TheRealBodhi,

  1. You seem to think I’m totally bald, with some kind of combover. LOL. I’m a young guy! Wrong.

  2. You seem to think I don’t go outside and/or have no life. Wrong again. I’m a student so I work 6-8 hours on my computer each day and use hairsite as a way of procrastinating, not to mention a bunch of other non-related sites (boingboing.net is great, btw).

  3. You seem to think one day I’m falling for HM while the other day I’m complaining how long it’s going to take. Wrong again. I’ve always thought 2010-2012 is a realistic timeframe for first-wave HM with reasonably full commercialization, never changed my view on that. I think if you actually knew something about HM then perhaps we could have an informative debate about this.

  4. One other thing: you seem to be incapable of detecting humor and seem to be taking my original psot waaaaaaaay too seriously.

Now go back and get your f**king STRIP SURGERY.

All the best,
BB

So, it is still “within five years”, nice to know that the board is consistent :slight_smile:

HTP Docs & politicians are very similar. EVERYTHING that comes out of their mouth is a carefully scripted crock of sh*t that benefits no one but themselves. HTP docs & politicians are well known for their back flips & flip flopping on issues so assmans change of heart is no surprise. 10 years from now he’ll probably claim that strip & fue were barbaric procedure & he always supported hm.

Assman’s opinions/ predications on hm are as accurate as our own.

» TheRealBodhi,
» Wrong!

  1. I think you are probably going bald. And certainly someday soon you will have a combover! And still as a young guy!

  2. I see your posts don’t follow any particular time or order which leaves me to believe that although you may be a student, I don’t think the 6 to 8 hour time frame you may work on a computer is the ONLY time you post on bald forums. (including several others besides this one)

  3. I think you’re falling for whatever these companies put out. I saw you post a thread that detailed an innovation that was YEARS in the future and then jump on the bandwagon for another completely different method of hair resoration.

And I’ll freely admit that I know nothing of HM or even what it stands for. Because I don’t give a shit. Ok, I shave my head and I just enjoy the panicked reaction of self-centered, body dysmorphic assbags like yourself.

And I don’t appreciate your weak Billy Batts type reference from Goodfellas as to go get my fucking strip surgery! (As shinebox)

See ya baldy

Bodhi,

I will reply to your message since BB seems to maintain modesty. I have exchanged e-mails with him about Acell (maybe the other method that you are speaking about). I have sent e-mails to his HARVARD e-mail address because he is a grad student at that prestigious school.

As far as when HM will be released, nobody knows…but one thing that is for sure is you are one of the typical negative posters in this forum that comes to this site to douse the hopes of the members who post here often. If you don’t believe that HM is a hope in the near future, why waste your time (or ours) by comming here. We won’t miss you…honestly!

Thanks for the Rassman timeline. I say give him another year or two, and he will be claiming to have invented HM :smiley:

First of all. I’m not “TYPICAL” by any means. I don’t come to this site to douse anyones hopes. I certainly wouldn’t do that. I didn’t say that I didn’t believe that HM isn’t a hope for the future. If you read my post you would have saw that I said I didn’t really know what HM was. And as far as coming here, well I’ve been coming here for 7 years on and off and I will continue to do so as long as I feel like coming here. Or until Dave boots me. And if Boston Baldy and a few other precious posters can babble on about nonsense and get people’s hopes up when there is NO indication of any signifigant cure for at least a decade, if ever. Than I can also post my disagreement. It’s a forum to discuss research and it’s a forum to discuss hair replacement. It’s not a forum for people who agree with YOU or Boston Baldy. Get used to it. It’s the internet after all. And the Harvard email that you are so in awe of means about as much to me as what you ate for breakfast yesterday. I went to Columbia myself. Prettier girls and not as much whiney douchebags!

See ya

Bodhi,

You say that you don’t come here to douse anyone’s hopes because you don’t even know what HM is, but yet you also state that some people “babble” about “nonsense” when there is NO indication of of any significant cure for at least a decade, if ever. How can you make a statement like this if you haven’t done any research about the field? If you have done any research about the field of possible “cures” for hairloss, you certainly would know what HM is. It just doesn’t make any sense.

Oh, and by the way, congratulations on Columbia…that’s impressive also.

Take Care,
Raptor

Different people have different ways of coping with the disease of hair loss. Some become obsessed with hair multiplication, others with hair transplants. Others shave their heads and avoid photographs. Others chemically castrate themselves with avodart, spiro, propecia, and so on. And yes some lurk on hair loss boards and make random caustic outbursts. So Bodhi, I really don’t blame you – it’s a nasty disease and for many of us there aren’t very many good options. Plus I read your heated exchange with James Bond and thought it was rather funny.

You guys have a point. I guess my former posts on this subject don’t make complete sense. At one time this forum was full of a lot of guys trading insults and flaming one another while making fun of whomoever had posted a new Farrell system to the gallery. I guess those days are gone. I will admit to posting without thought once in a while and I usually cringe the next time I have a chance to re-read what I have previously posted. I see that the conversations here are very serious and obviously I know that people are also serious about this research. I have also done a bit of reading on the subject and realized I was familiar with it. Just not exactly what you guys meant by HM. I must have blanked. It will be interesting to see what happens. And just because I enjoy a little flaming now and then does not mean that I don’t have empathy for anyone that’s bothered to any degree by their hairloss. Boston, I’m sorry I singled you out.

Bodhi
