Wear and tear I suppose.

I once got Phil L and Gary M. to play at our school gig. Now, PL was considered a real Dubliner and Irish by us. And GM too.

Rejection sampling of random girls.

Depends on whether she's linear congruential or Mersenne twister, what?

Sobol sequences better?

My mother has copper-red hair, freckles and green eyes (though they were light blue when she was a child), but more delicate facial features than the one above. She's got Udmurt ancestors.

I had to google udmart
I used to know a girl in college who had red hair, and she was of russian jewish ancestry. I remember her saying that they'd been to russia to visit her grandmother and the only way they could communicate was in yiddish. Her father was a retired USAF colonel

In the old days when I had a beard, it was red. On my head it was dark brown (not the bear, the hair).

Your beard was possibly bleached by acids in your food. My husband has a similar problem.

@ppapuer
I googled Udmurt too and most photos it returned are of Irish people from what I can tell :-)
