Dear 100 Hour Board,

If you had a single strand of hair that was insanely long, how long would it need to be to be able to completely cover you entirely by itself?

- If it could make it change colors, then you could be invisible!

A: Dear now that would be cool wouldn't it,

I'm calculating this for my body, since we're all different. Human hairs are on average about 0.0000254 meters thick. Using the Mosteller Formula, my body has a surface area of approximately 1.788 square meters. Therefore, the hair would have to be 70,377.42 meters long to completely cover me (that's 230,897.047 feet). SICK!
