Yeah, I don't get tattoos, either. It's a generational thing. My son has various tattoos, although not one shows if he wears long-sleeved shirts and pants. I cautioned him years ago that there might be some older dude like myself who might view visible tattoos as a demerit in a job interview.

Interesting how cultural fads change. In my youth, tattoos were considered very blue-collar lower class. No women that I remember ever had tattoos in the '50s and '60s.

Regards,
Alan

No offense taken in the 'hijacking' of this thread... actually, I think I may have been the hijacker?

I find injury stories fascinating. Not because I'm demented, but because when I look back on my life (I know, I know, I'm not old enough to say that yet right? Well I'm 38 now, and this is the oldest I've ever been, so...) I'm often amazed that I am still in one piece. Some of the hijinks I performed growing up (I was always a bit of a daredevil, which my parents were completely oblivious of) would scare the hell out of me if I knew either of my kids were repeating. Scenario's like me knocking my tooth out were very rare.

I'd say luck had more to do with the fact that I didn't end up a quadraplegic myself than anything. But I find it interesting to hear similar stories of these types of incidents. Call me crazy.

By the 70s you could add bikers and far out artsy types to that list, but Tatoos were still pretty unusual.

There are around 50,000 people or so in the town I live in. We have 6 tattoo parlors. I would bet in the 60's there were none to be found in a smallish town like this, you would have had to drive to Indianapolis or Dayton to get one. Actually, back in 94 when I got my first tat I had to go to Dayton come to think of it.

Yes over the last two decades tattoo's have really exploded. But I don't think it will get MORE popular, I think this is a fad that will eventually burn out and sooner or later 16 year olds will be asking their dads, "why do you have that stupid looking sleeve"? Every generation feels the need to be different from the last. So if this generation is tattoo crazy, the next will choose not to be, just because!

Micah, I'm sure you know this, but I wanted to let the others know that it turns out the String Theory has been supplanted by the Membrane (or Brane or M-) Theory due to unresolved problems in the 11th dimension. Thus, they cured the singularity (big bang) problem via many parallel universes. Not positive, but I think this means there might be an opening for your theory on Simple Gravity! Just and FYI.


Here's another brainteaser bordering of gravity for you Micah.

The basis for Felber's "hypervelocity propulsion" drive is that the repulsive effect allows a relativistic particle to deliver a specific impulse that is greater than its specific momentum, thereby achieving speeds greater than the driving particle's speed.

Untested of course. They want to use the Large Haydron Collider so hopefully this will break us into faster than light travel so we can escape the black hole the collider is going to create. ;\)

Unfortunately, the Large Hadron Collider may be sabotaging itself.

I found this idea pretty fascinating, if unlikely. But, what if...? \:\)
