Study suggests US Presidents age at warp speed

Pound360 noticed Obama's hair is getting a little grey around the temples last week and wondered how much his race to the White House had to do with it. As it turns out, there's evidence that public office, specifically the Presidency of the United States, reall wears people down.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
