I once read that hair and fingernails continue growing, even after a persons death, Im not sure how long it grows for, (Im assuming until the skin rots), so Im not sure that much hair could grow, to actually breach the surface of the ground!


It would take years for hair to grow that long.

Actually, hair and nails do not grow, the skin shrinks. So it looks like it’s growing but in reality it’s a optical illusion.

As for hair coming out of a gravestone? I know if you lived where I lived, it’s absolutely possible. I don’t know if it’s bad weaves or crappy hair extensions that fly off or huge catfights, but where I live it’s not uncommon to find huge clumps of hair everywhere. I don’t even think about it anymore it’s so common. Also tennis shoes tied together and flung up on telephone wires. It’s just what we do here.

Our joke was every time we saw the tennis shoes thing, we said the Ramones must be in town. Because the day we went to see the Ramones we saw shoes all through the car ride to the pavilion.

Isnt the tennis shoe over telephone wires, a gang thing? Seems like I heard it explained once and it had something to do with gang territory or something.

That’s an urban legend. A good one. But I’ve also heard it’s to mark where you can buy drugs.

Basically, it’s kids having fun.

Its possible it means different things in different cities...I know for a fact, things in my area to look for with drug dealers (years of personal experience!), but thanks to the internet and social media today, most of them have gone online, but they still use 'covers' to advertise...some Ive seen are pretty clever...


'Brown dog for sale'
'white dog for sale'


'garden or tools sections' in online classified sites such as Craigslist and FB marketplace are frequently used in my area too.

Sometimes when I go for walks you'll find hair all over the place and it's basically where an owl or other animal caught something furry like a rabbit and ripped them up and left behind a lot of fur. It looks a lot different once it's pulled out and can look like hair.

The hair and nails aren't really growing. The skin is retracting as it shrinks.
