Possibly thanks to deforestation I'm okay with.

Pubic lice, the crab-shaped insects that have dwelled in human groins since the beginning of history, are disappearing. Doctors say bikini waxing may be the reason.

Waning infestations of the bloodsuckers have been linked by doctors to pubic depilation, especially a technique popularized in the 1990s by a Manhattan salon run by seven Brazilian sisters. More than 80 percent of college students in the U.S. remove all or some of their pubic hair -- part of a trend that’s increasing in western countries. In Australia, Sydney’s main sexual health clinic hasn’t seen a woman with pubic lice since 2008 and male cases have fallen 80 percent from about 100 a decade ago.

My last deployment, there was for whatever reason a little place just outside the gate where we shopped. You could get custom made suits, haircuts, bootleg dvds, and interesting to this story waxed. So, being on break a group of us went up there and convinced one of the Specialists to get his chest waxed, saying we would pay for it. Best five bucks I ever spent, I don't think I've ever heard screams of pain like that, and it made for an interesting video.

I read about this the other day and I had actually wondered before if the shaving trend was affecting the rate of lice infestations. Guess it was.

Now I need something new to wonder about.
