“The last natural blondes will die out within 200 years, scientists believe. A study by experts in Germany suggests people with blonde hair are an endangered species and will become extinct by 2202.” –Blondes ‘to die out in 200 years’BBC)
Two comments. First, this reminds me of the game theory scene in A Beautiful Mind, where four male mathematicians scheming for the attention of a blonde all agree to ignore her in favor of her four brunette friends, reducing the chances that any man will be rejected. Second, this article is needlessly alarmist; blonde genes are recessive. People with blonde genes aren’t having as many blonde children, because they’re now more likely to have children with people outside the Scananavian communities where blonde genes are so prevalent. The story gets your attention becuase it seems to be claiming that all blonde people will fall to the ground and die by the year 2202.
