I don't care how much "fun" y'all are having. What I do care about is keeping threads on topic. if you want to start another thread fine. but I've deleted all the off topic posts after my warning. If you guys can't stick to the topic, this one gets locked. I don't mean to be 'mean" but I have a responsibility to keep things on point.

I just want to say one thing: Lenin lost his hair very quickly and so young! What a terrible thing to happen to a teenager.  :-/

I don't have a thing nice or indifferent to say about Lenin's hair, or Stalin's hair etc. What I do have to say is that I find it very difficult to understand why people who post here under the guise of learning more about the Romanov's, The Alexander Palace, and Russian Imperial history have to fawn and make adolscent comments about the men who directly/indirectly cause the death of the IF and their relatives. And I find it more than disgusting to fawn over men who contributed to the wholesale slaughter of their fellow countrymen and women. I find it neither funny, nor cute. I do find it more than sickening.

While I applaud the expression of free speech, I also wish understanding the responsibilty of that free speech was taken and understood.

Louise, everyone is just being silly, perhaps as a reaction to all the arguing that's been going on here recently. Sometimes it's nice to stop being ultra serious all the time and just lighten up. No one means anything by it, it's just for fun.

Well back to topic, I never knew Lenin had hair, because most pics I see of him his hair is gone. PLUS  " I NEVER liked Lenin", so iIdon't care if he had hair.  >:( for what he did to the Romanovs.

I believe that it is a birthmark they call "portwine stain" - it has been Gorby's trade mark.

Lenin's hair (or lack of) may be a fascinating subject for some - so let's refrain from being so judgmental  ;).

I wonder if the loss of his hair at such an extremely young age had an effect on his psychological makeup? I'm serious, this could have worked to make him an even more bitter and negative person.

It could very well be... I remember reading in one of the Romanov books, it may have been N & A, that just around 1916-17 when Lenin was living abroad, he was getting really frustrated about the way things were going in Russia and thinking that the revolution will not happen during his lifetime, and besides that, the hair balm he purchased to help his bald pate was not working either. I am serious, this is what the book said! At the time I thought it was kind of funny. But maybe some of his personality was shaped by this "hair" (or lack thereof) frustration. Hey, I've heard of stranger things! Does anyone else remember the passage I am talking about?
