Wow, look at you!

It's one of the world's great many imponderables: how a great day can be resurrected from the ashes of painful humiliation, a tragic loss, or romantic catastrophe. You can salvage a day sabotaged by a spiteful boss, savage children, or rampant economic recession.

There are surprisingly few situations, really, that can't be turned around for the better--whether by hook, crook, or pluckiness. But, as I've said before--nothing good ever happened on a bad hair day.

Enter Ben Brown, who has great hair. His new blog, Must Share Hair solicits and publishes pics of your hair in all its manifest glory:

"To document and promote real people with real hair for the amusement and inspiration of the whole world!"

Just when I think I've seen all the most wondrous bits of the Internet! I didn't realize it before now, but I've been waiting for this site my whole kinky-headed life.

I don't know about you, but I can't count the number of times I've looked into the mirror, struck dumb by either disaster or wonder, and thought to myself, "I just wish somebody could see this mess." And there's nothing quite so frustrating as having a really, really good hair day without a single place to go or person to show yourself to.

Once again, the Internet saves the day. Even on those days when nobody should have to look at you.
