Women having piercings and tattoos...Is this hot or not?

I love your stance on it sir - good on ya for respecting her desire. However, I never understood the name on the shoulder thing. I ask people who are getting it "So, you expecting to get Alzheimer's or something?" If I wanted to express myself, I wouldn't walk around yelling my own name over and over again.  (Dec 21, 2009 | post #86)

I will agree that it can be overdone, and I appreciate the "natural " look. I absolutely agree with your last statement. However, if you talk to the men/women who are getting tattoos, you will find in most cases they are not getting them for anyone else. My ink is mine, my wife's is hers. We value each other's opinions/suggestio ns but we do not let that be the deciding factor. If they are getting a tattoo on themselves specifically for someone else, then they're trying to honor someone - which isn't bad, but also isn't why I'd get a tattoo.  (Dec 19, 2009 | post #27)

Sexy/Not sexy? I'm ambivalent. People are sexy. What they are wearing for clothing or tattoos or jewelry is an accessory to that, nothing more nor less. I've got 2 tattoos, wife has 1 but piercings in her ears and one tiny nosering. We got our original ink done back in 1994. I admit it took a while to get used to the nosering, but once I got over my own hang-ups it's pretty cute, and barely noticeable. (Now, if she had gotten a bull ring or something, we'd still be talking about it a year later.) Skinwalker had the best comment, and it was the first one. They can be very much appreciated if done right. I've seen many, MANY tattoos done wrong (or overdone), and it looks terrible. They can be a great form of expression/artwork , or they can be an embarrassment. Choose wisely, take an extra MONTH when making your decision, and you'll end up with something that you still like having 10-20 years later.  (Dec 19, 2009 | post #26)

The Railrunner Made 2 Million but costs 21 Million

Corn & Whisky (2 of my favorite things, btw) - what I have gleaned from both of your posts is "it's bad, it sucks, our leaders are stupid". 1) I agree. 2) It's never really a good idea to list problems without having a suggested solution in hand. How else should this money be generated? Obviously the taxes as they exist now are not cutting it. Make a suggestion (simply "getting rid of Richardson" won't do it, the nepotism in this state is too thick)...you've got a different perspective than I on this; I'm interested.  (Dec 18, 2009 | post #39)

The Railrunner Made 2 Million but costs 21 Million

On the original topic, scroll down halfway... http://www.lightra ilnow.org/news/n_a bq_2009-06a.htm I don't know how much of this is truth vs. hype. There is no citation from the OP regarding the $2M generated, but it's oddly reassuring to know our friends across the U.S. helped pay for it. Also reassuring to know Sandoval county handled some of the cost. I started off thinking the RailRunner was a stupid idea; I'm gradually being swayed in the opposite direction. Any daily commuters in here ride it regularly? How much $ do you save monthly? How would you guys feel about them making certain stretches of I-40 (i.e. where Rt. 66 runs parallel to it, and/or through town) a toll road? Perhaps upping sales tax on anything related to motor vehicles? The money for maintenance of how we travel has to come from somewhere...  (Dec 17, 2009 | post #33)

DUH, they were created. Haven't you ever seen doughnut seeds? I think they're sold in boxes labeled "Cheerios " now. And J1, not sure I got your point. 30% of the world is Christian... so if you hold fact based on belief system to a vote you're in for a hard lesson.  (Dec 15, 2009 | post #556)

Not if you count global religious followers it doesn't. If that's the case then you are far outvoted my friend.  (Dec 14, 2009 | post #550)

Someone's going crazy with the spam/clueless/nuts buttons, but doesn't want to speak up. I find that sort of cowardly and funny at the same time.  (Dec 10, 2009 | post #14)

How important is sex in a relationship?

With all respect, so is "don't murder and there won't be killings", but unfortunately that doesn't make it so. The amount of "they should" and "they should not" statements used in our society - and used as a basis for morality - is insane. People need to start saying "They do", get a good dose of reality, and start working from that instead.  (Dec 10, 2009 | post #440)

I'm sorry. I know it's a classic, and kids love it, and all carolers know it, and everyone sings it, and it's about a wonderful story...but "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" irks the heck out of me. Since I see Christmas as a positive time of year, I'm going to put in my favorites as well..."The Little Drummer Boy" is my favorite, "Christmas Eve - Sarajevo" (http://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=alIc wofkrS8) is a very close second, and Silk's suggestion is also up there in my book.  (Dec 10, 2009 | post #10)
