My maternal grandfather had a head like a billiard ball.
I have  distinctly longer 4th (ring) fingers compared to the 2nd

And I have classical male pattern baldness at age 63.  That's somewhat 
more bald than the average 63, I think.

And I'm interested in the details of that Chinese rejuvenation study.
