In one of the university shops today, I found myself queueing behind a young woman with the most amazing hair.

It wasn't actually hair, it was extensions attached to her hair (which was arranged in cornrows). It was like a blue-grey mass of half-inch-diameter woolly tendrils with rings and other things in it, quite impressively spectacular. I really wanted to compliment her on it, but you never know how people are going to take these things. Rather than finding myself reported for harrassment or racism, I therefore kept silent. She'll never know how impressive this particular stranger found her hair.

So much for random acts of kindness.

Self-censorship may be the worst sort of censorship, but its the safest kind.
