I don't want to be cool. I am cool. And tattoos are cool. So we go together.

You'll stop being cool the minute they inject the first drop of ink into your skin. For good.  Wink

I have a reliquery:

If tattoos appeared on a relic, what would that represent?

Sounds like something for the OC.net Epilogue from Ochrid.

If tattoos appeared on a relic, what would that represent?

1. A criminal hand tattooed the relic - the Saint will avenge the profanation.

2. If the tattoo appeared spontaneously, the relic does not belong to a Saint, but to a cursed or heretic soul - a priest or the bishop himself must be summoned to read the funeral absolutions once more and it will naturally decompose.  Grin

No offence to those who've already got them, but I've always thought tattoos to be the ultimate mark of poor taste.

For every 200 ugly as hell tattoos there is 1 that is somewhat decent.

Depends on the tats. I think they are trashy on a woman IMO.

Every comment made in opposition to the acceptance of homosexuality is not made out of a phobia.  It's a neato burrito catch phrase and all, but it's wrong.

Thank you. I was sort of leaning towards that one, but it has been ages since I last saw an Indiana Jones film.

I agree that the vast majority of tattoos are ugly or just plain stupid.  Some women with tattoos can pull it off and look good with them.  The vast majority of women - not so much.

Pocahontas is one of my favourite Disney flicks, despite criticism (haters gonna hate). So are The Three Musketeers. Too many people treat it too seriously.

I don't know what you are talking about.


Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

Pocahontas was pretty hot, but Jasmine, or even Jane from Tarzan, is better.  But I'm not a cartoon, so ignore my nonsense.

I watched Toy Story every day for almost 2 months.  I can sympathize.  My friend and I could recite half the movie by memory.  I wish I could recite something more useful.  Like, more than three telephone numbers.

That would definitely be impressive. I can only remember two.

Over last Christmas break, there was one particular day when we watched the entire Kung Fu Panda franchise (two feature movies, holiday special and the two Secrets of... specials). It was fun, as I hadn't seen any of them before, but by the end of the day we adults were dangerously close to OD zone.

There was a time when my son wanted to see it Every. Day. I consoled myself with the Muses' prowess. Grin

I watched Toy Story every day for almost 2 months.  I can sympathize.  My friend and I could recite half the movie by memory.  I wish I could recite something more useful.  Like, more than three telephone numbers.

That would definitely be impressive. I can only remember two.

Over last Christmas break, there was one particular day when we watched the entire Kung Fu Panda franchise (two feature movies, holiday special and the two Secrets of... specials). It was fun, as I hadn't seen any of them before, but by the end of the day we adults were dangerously close to OD zone.

I've done the TV/movie OD several times.  My friend and I watched 5 movies at the cinema/theater and we were almost dead afterwards.  My wife and I saw the first two seasons of Homeland in a single day.  I was bushed by the second to last episode.  I don't even really remember what happened at the end.

Especially literature in its original language.  Who reads anymore?

The quote in Cyrillic's Signature? Unless he changed it since you posted, it's an excerpt from The Count of Monte Christo by Alexandre Dumas.

Uh...nooooo......I'm referring to the book entitled, in lower case letters (very creative, btw) "anymore".  Or, is that the author's name? Grin

Now, there's a question!  (Careful, though...this could go political very quickly!)

I just called a business and their hold music was "Yellow Rose of Texas" in MIDI music.  I thought I was transported back to the 90's for a second.

Thanks, I know exactly what that sounds like and it's playing in my head.   Angry
