"All the Presidents' Hair" ...
Exam time! Identify the presidents by their hair styles. No cheating. I'm only posting this because I got 6 out of 7. Kevin Murphy of Ghost in the Machine, ah, didn't do as well. Back to the books for you, Kevin!

Only 1 for 7 but I changed two right answers to wrong ones (Garfield and Adams) despite the fact that I always tell my students that your first hunch is usually correct. D'oh!

Yeah. In my defense, I was never off by more than about two terms: it's quite an interesting look at evolving hairstyles, if nothing else. Kind of odd how many of our mid-20th century presidents were balding....

yeah. me two. I only got 3.
The thing is totally rigged anyways because everyone before 1963 wore those white powdered wigs, making the "haircuts" inaccessible to the general public.

Ugh! The British PMs. I think I could do Churchill and Thatcher.
Sharon Howard - 3/27/2005
Which means you did one better than me. I hadn't even heard of two or three of 'em. (I have my doubts that I'd do much better if it were British PMs though...)

... which is the only thing that comforts me about getting one out of seven correct.
