Did Page dye his hair? A bit off topic but it's a bit shocking that a 39-year-old would have hair that gray. I guess even running a wildly successful company is stressful.



> Did Page dye his hair?

Page doesn't really strike me as the type to invest heavily in appearances.

> it's a bit shocking that a 39-year-old would have hair that gray.

shrug maybe. I've had significant gray hair in my beard since I was 19 or so & my uncles were both bald by 25. Weirder things have happened.

Probably more so than a failure. At least failures end :-P Having had recently to negotiate various potential outcomes in parallel, with nothing but upside all around, I couldn't believe how incredibly stressful it can be. It's an odd thought to find yourself wishing for (startup) death, to make the stress go away. However, on the other side, most of that type of stress is self-imposed. Maybe the same thing that made him so successful is what made his hair go gray...

I'm surprised that you haven't seen other relatively young people with gray hair. It's more common than you think, and it's not always stress, it just runs on the family sometimes.

I have a friend who is under 35 and his hair is going nearly completely gray at this point.

I'm 30 and half of my hair are grey. I spotted first grey hair when I was in 8th grade ;)

He's nervous even in this interview.
