Sefirah Beards UPDATED! (scroll down)

I received the following email on the 19th of this here month of April:

Hi,

I came across http://therealshliach.blogspot.com/ while searching for resources around psychology and facial hair and was wondering if this is the correct contact in regards to the content on the site. My team just created a graphic on the topic, would you be interested in taking a look? I would love to get feedback from your readers and see what they have to say about the topic, as well as yours.

Thanks in advance for your time.


I wasn't sure if this was spam or not, but eventually decided that it most probably wasn't, so I emailed back:

Hey, 


I'm not sure what the blog has to do with psychology and facial hair, but yes, I would probably be interested in seeing a graphic on the topic.

Just like clockwork, I got the following email:

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me. The graphic illustrates a brief history of the beard and how they are perceived today. The piece lives here and you're welcome to use it as you'd like: http://onlinephd.org/facial-hair/


Let me know what you think, I appreciate all feedback.

Thanks!



And for those of you too lazy to click on through to the source link, here(I don't think an apostrophe belongs here, so I'm not inserting one)s you go:

Two things: I'm impressed that Safari managed to maintain the hyperlinks while I was copying and pasting from my email to Blogger; obviously things have changed progressed from the TRS heyday. Two, I'm not sure what to make of this graph, but I'm sure my astute readers will have much to say on the matter.
