I’ve charted the mood of this forum since I landed here 10 years ago.
This forum goes in a cycle from despair to hope and finally hype every 5 years like a sine wave. The pattern repeats like clock work - only with new characters.
Right now we are trending in this cycle towards hope. New doctors, characters, companies, technologies, media fanfare…etc is building the hope momentum. The mood is on the upswing and soon the hype of an impending cure which is always right around the corner will be upon us.
The mania will reach its peak and blow its top around 2015 according to my calculations. Then we’ll fall off a cliff into deep despair. Guys will commit suicide around that time once they realise they will die bald and there is no cure coming.
From then on its another 5 year wait for the spark of hope to rekindle the cycle all over.
This is the Law of Baldness.
