December 11, 2007: Blonds
From Neatorama. Blonds in Europe.
Undertoad Tuesday Dec 11 12:36 PM
So in Northern Poland there are many Polish blonds.
Coign Tuesday Dec 11 12:40 PM
I am polish and there are more than a few blonds in my family.

I didn't expect the one beige area in the British Isles.

And I can tell you that most Swedes are NOT naturally blonde. Peroxide sales in Scandinavia must be through the roof to keep up the fiction.

I think we now know where the hole in the Ozone layer is.

Oh wait, you weren't talking about the NFL Vikings now were you??

isn't it funny how there's more blondes in the HEEL of Italy's boot than anywhere else in Italy? you'd think the Italian blones would be in the north.

It would be interesting to see the stats for here in Australia. We have a huge nation of blonde heads roaming around, including myself.

Helllo Elephant lady.
Leah Tuesday Dec 11 10:00 PM
Hi ya , I'm itching to get back to Thailand to be with the elephants again. I'm hoping Santa will be nice this year and give me a trip. The only problem being I've got a one year old to tow along.

Apparently not. This is one of the original articles by the author:
And here is an article: Cavegirls were the first blondes to have more fun:
Frost has some interesting articles on the sexual dimorphism of skin, eye and hair color.

I do find fault with the article. IMO, the only prerequisite for a man to want to have sex with a woman is the word "yes".

It maintains the presumptions that women could never hunt, and that the societies were predominantly monogamous.
It ignores the connection between skin colour and hair colour, and that lighter skin is better in low-sunlight climates because it enables more vitamin D to be produced.
Still, the study does point out that European pigmentation is very remarkable compared to the rest of the planet, and seems to have emerged very suddenly and quite recently. That does call for an explanation, and maybe they have found some contributing factors.

There was a programme on fairly recently re tracing bloodlines back in the UK. I only caught the end of it, but it seemed less people were descended from Viking bloodlines than they (the families) had hoped.

There's no way more than half the people in the north of England have naturally blonde hair.
xoxoxoBruce Saturday Dec 15 11:25 PM
The highest percentage of natural redheads in the world is in Scotland (13%), followed closely by Ireland with 10%. In the US, about 2% of the population are natural redheads.

Are these statistics based on the adult population? Including kids can skew the statistics. Some kids start off with blond hair when they are young and then grow out of it.
