Ghengis Khan Had Red Hair and Green Eyes

Yes, you read that right. According to ancient historian Rashid Al-din, Ghengis Khan – the great ancient marauder who terrorized much of Asia and Europe, burned many a town, and had over 2000 concubines – was a redhead. Many scoff at the idea of him being caucasian, worse yet a redhead with green eyes. However, when you think of it, who else fits the picture better than a hot-tempered red head?

Redhead Surfer O’Brien Scores Perfect 10 and Loses

Jamie O’Brien poses for a portrait prior to surfing The Wedge, in Newport Beach, CA, USA, on 1 September 2012. // Jimmy Wilson/Red Bull Illume //

Riding the pipe is downright a dangerous sport and it takes quite a thrill seeker to wish to surf such waves. Take red haired surfer Jamie O’Brien from Hawaii and you have the perfect example. Daredevil and immune from the apparent hazards of this sport including sunburn, O’Brien is a top contender. Recently at the Red Bull surf event in his home island, Jamie scored a perfect 10 and lost to another surfer. My first thought was this could only happen to a redhead.

Spencer Tracy: The Redhead Lover of Women

spencertracy

Possibly the best actor of the 20th century, Spencer Tracy let his red-haired persona come out on screen as well in real life.

Tracy had hot romances with many of his leading ladies, drank excessively – on the movie set as well – while garnishing two Best Actor Academy awards. Teaming up with Katharine Hepburn for nine Hollywood onscreen romances, their love carried off the screen for over 25 years even while he was married. Sounds like a wild redhead!

Redhead Mummies: China’s Ancient Secret Uncovered

We have been taught that the Chinese civilization developed without any outside influence. When Chinese archaeologists discovered mummies in their desert province of Xinjiang, they were startled to find that these people were of Celtic origin. The mummies had red hair and clothing made in Europe. These people brought with them horses, the wheel and woven cloth. Evidence suggests that these ‘caucasians’ resided in China for over 3000 years. This amazing find would have been kept secret to the outside world if not for the chance discovery of an American professor Victor Mair in the 1980’s.

These mummies were part of the ‘Secrets of the Silk Road’ exhibit which toured the US in 3 cities in 2010-11. However, the exhibit was cancelled suddenly without warning by the Chinese government because of their perceived cultural sensitivity.

Personally, I think it would be appropriate for the Chinese government to return these mummies to a western historical center, such as the British Museum, since the mummies are not Chinese. They should be displayed and their history shared, not hidden away in China.

Redheads High on Marijuana

There is a strain of marijuana named after Willie Nelson called the Red headed Stranger.iu

I am wondering how other redheads respond to getting high on marijuana, since we  respond differently to almost everything such as needing 20% more anesthesia to be put under. I myself smoked it many many times before I felt anything. But when I did, it was quite a ride. I was at a concert where White Snake opened for Quiot Riot. The music never sounded so good. I shouldn’t have been driving when we left. I remember being on a slant and the other cars moving and I thought I was going backwards, so I pressed the brakes and started screaming. I think I drove 10mph all the way the home. Those stop signs took like eternity to arrive.

I have read other discussion sites where redheads often never get high, to getting higher than anyone else to just a regular high. Sure enough there is always the uninformed  response from non-redheads that cannot believe that marijuana would react differently because of one’s hair color. Personally, I haven’t touched the stuff in years. That is funny to me now that marijuana is legal in most states. Lastly, it’s always a bad ride when I have drunk alcohol before smoking.
