As you may recall, fellow ScienceBlogger Ethan Siegel of Starts With A Bang agreed to wax his chest in exchange for $1000 combined charitable donation from Isis the Scientist and Comrade PhysioProf to Kiva, the micro-loan outfit.
Well, the motherfucker actually did it! Here is his chest in it’s pre-wax hairy glory:
And here is a Youtube video of the waxing process:
Ouch! As promised Isis the Scientist and I have made our donations to Kiva. Isis is directing her ScienceBlogs proceeds to Kiva going forward until they reach $500, and I have just directly donated my portion to Kiva’s operating budget.
Anyone who is impressed by Ethan’s courageous chest-waxing escapade is hereby encouraged to go over to Kiva and make a loan or donation.
Since Ethan has caught the waxing and shaving for charity bug, the comments of this post are an open auction for charitable donations in exchange for Ethan to remove MORE HAIR FROM HIS BODY! We will not stop until Ethan is COMPLETELY HAIRLESS!!!!111!!!11!! ELEVENty!111!
