    Lots don't realize, but being "ginger" is actually a rare (<2%) genetic mutation, and it can and does often include ruddy to translucent skin, a high pain threshold, and seemingly contradictorily and puzzlingly enough- a requirement for larger does of anesthesia for dental and surgical procedures

    Vikings were more likely redheads than the blondes they are often portrayed as

    If we've got tempers, it's likely developed from dealing with the non-redhead jerks out thereo_O

    Laaaaaast gal that I dated before meeting and marrying my wife was a flaming red haired woman named Val.

    She was not yet 23 and I had just turned 30. Those 7 years are huge at that age.

    We had zero in common - but it did not matter. Worst conversations in history but - that was not the point.

    So glad I checked that box before the settle down. She would stop clocks when she walked into a room with that Galway mop on her head.

    Then, a 5’10” gal with long white blonde hair walked into the office and , mister ? That was that.

    We been together for 25-ish and married for 20.

    Back when I had hair, it was a glorious dark red. Eventually it got so thin it was just an annoyance, and then it turned gray as a final insult, so I kicked it to the curb. Nobody treats my head that way.

    Had a girlfriend named Ginger, does that count? Actually it wasn't her real name but a descriptive nickname.

    I used to have a hint of ginger in my whiskers before the greys fazed them out.
    I tried to bleach my hair from brown to blond in the early 90's with a home dye kit and it turned it orange. Apparently the ginger gene was laying in waiting and doesn't take well to home hair dye kits.

    That's another "saying" regarding redheads, they are either purely good, or purely evil.
    When I'm asked which one I am (it's happened more than once), I point out that I'm also a gemini-the twins...:cool:

    Lots of brown haired Europeans have the ginger gene. The Vikings got around back in the day. If the Vikings were born in more modern times they would have all been in rock n roll bands.

    Can I join the cub by association? I am not a redhead myself - but my wife is (was - she claimed she went grey soon after marrying me 37 years ago!). Also, my eldest son, his wife and their daughter (my granddaughter) are all redheads. Here's a pic of Nanny with granddaughter.

    My sons are not redheads (no milkman jokes), and I am happy for them that they don't have to deal with it, especially regarding the sunburning easily part

    Not a ginger, but somehow one sprung from my loins:

    Does that count?

    Used to be ginger, but now heading for the silver fox look. Apart from my one ear hair, which is black and annoying.
