Not so much a thought experiment as a single neuron misfire.

The idea is simple: establish a museum devoted the subject of all
things to do with hair and beards. This would naturally include
mustaches, under arm hair (referred to where I live as oxter hair)
and of course pubic hair.
Hair is a facinating subject. Nothing can creep people out more
for example a single strand of hair detected in a sandwich.
There is almost infinite variety to human hair types colour and
styles. Just think of the extremes between rasta dreadlocks and a
shaved head. In between there are: corn rows; Mohicans; short back
and sides; plaits of every description and attachments of numerous
varieties. Then there are the ethnic styles to add to all that.
Of course no museum would be complete without its souvenir
section where miniature wigs, mustaches, etc are all available for
the compulsive collector. Perhaps such a museum already exists?
Could not find though, and if you build it, I will come frequently.
Imagine the possibilities... [RayfordSteele, Jul 10 2012]

||Ha - excellent... Posted from my iPad without a problem
thanks to the fab Jutta.

what about a toenail clipping, or north-east Asia, or
||I can still see you giggling so I won't m-f-d it, but better quality hairpieces are made out of real hair (go figure), and surely there's a wig museum out in the world somewhere.
||What was the problem with the iPad anyways ?
||As part of the "etc" in the main text, "merkins".
||This would be a great exhibit in a natural history museum. Maybe some material on the races of lice as well.
||Hair is not always your friend, I was briefly detained at Customs in Bangkok, suspected to be part of some obscure international animal-hair smuggling ring after cat-sitting (blurgh) for ten day for a friend and then visiting another friend with mad dog.
||Upon production of my HB explanatory card I was released.
||Possibly I'm also on to win the least imagination prize as well, sitting by the swimming pool mit palm trees and all I'm doing is typing HB annos on a laptop <sighs>
||palm trees - lovely. I'm just about to put on my hair shirt and go to work.... <sighs>
||Don't feel to bad, [nmrm]. I'm supposed to be working right
now, which means that I'm sitting indoors on a beautiful
summer day typing various bullshit of little to no value,
when I _should_ be sitting indoors on a beautiful summer
day typing various bullshit for which somebody may pay me
decent money someday.
