Bang vir die Wolf (HairBall)


No ponytails were harmed in the making of this cartoon. I had read about the RaPunzel number before, but since I had to sign a subscriber agreement not to link to said article; I had to google it. (Which seems counter-productive):

The Rapunzel number is a ratio used in this equation to calculate the effects of gravity on hair relative to its length.[7] This number determines whether a ponytail looks like a fan or whether it arcs over and becomes nearly vertical at the bottom. A short ponytail of springy hair with a low Rapunzel number, fans outward. A long ponytail with a high Rapunzel number, hangs down, as the pull of gravity overwhelms the springiness. (Wikipedia)
