Does Hair Length Affect ESP? A tale of two heads.

There is a tale making the rounds that if you get your hair cut you lose your psychic ability.  Here’s the gist of the story: The Army’s Special Forces canvased Indian reservations for talented trackers and scouts. They recruited a number of impressively talented Native Americans, but once these folks cut their hair to military standards, they mysteriously lost their abilities.  Scary, no—especially for those of us who regularly engage in psychic behavior?

However, once this story started to float about on the Internet, enterprising souls researched to see if there was substance to it. They could find no instance of the Special Forces recruiting Indians specifically to be scouts, nor confirm any stories about cutting hair adversely affecting psychic functioning (at least, that weren’t all spin-offs of this particular Internet legend.) But I have a better refutation to this mythical story. If it is true that losing one’s hair leads to psychic dysfunction, then why can I still remote view?
