    its because the tattoo is half above the pant line and half below. If the tattoo was completely covered then no one would notice it and it wouldn’t matter. If it were completely uncovered then people would think “that’s cool” or “that person is socially deviant” depending on their view of tattoos. But since a tramp stamp is half uncovered it makes people wonder what the other half looks like and because of where it is located that leads to other thoughts. Therefore if the purpose of your tattoo is to make people wonder you can be considered a ‘tramp’.

    In one of the stores I frequent there is a sort of message board stall. Every time I use it the amount of scribblings have increased. One person even wrote “now that I have defaced public property my self esteem has risen considerably”.

    No, I don’t think its taboo. I started college a little young and I eased into it by taking night classes before going full time. The majority of students going to night college with me were either military, retired and wanting something to do, or had already gotten one degree and was working on another one to help with a promotion in their already established careers. I think the closest person in age to me that year was 24. Now I go to full time day classes and there are very few people not in the ‘traditional’ college age range. In most of the classes I have had though the middle age people sort of automatically band together ( and start swapping stories of their jobs/families etc.) which may discourage others joining their group since most of us don’t have those experiences. Maybe the other students wont go out of their way to hang out with you, but I don’t think they would go out of their way to avoid you either.

    I used to play World of Warcraft and the first character I created was a male, not because I want to be a boy, but because I thought he looked cool. The second character I made was a female and I stuck with her because I found that I could get more help from other players as a girl. I told this to some of my guy friends and two of them made their first characters female for this reason. It didn’t seem like that big of a deal to us. I didn’t think my guy friends were weird for doing this, it was just a game.

    Back when I went trick or treating. I always remember being extremely thirsty. I mean here you are loaded down with candy, walking for miles with no water in sight. I remember one year a trusted member of the neighborhood was giving out hot apple cider. It was one of the best houses to go to. If the parents in your area would be uncomfortable with unsealed liquid, I don’t see where juice boxes could go wrong. They are probably more expensive than candy though. Just don’t give out those cheap erasers that don’t actually function as erasers.

    I know it is hard to believe, but people are actually getting smarter. Check this out “In his study of IQ tests scores for different populations over the past sixty years, James R. Flynn discovered that IQ scores increased from one generation to the next for all of the countries for which data existed (Flynn, 1994). This interesting phenomena has been called “the Flynn Effect.” Many of the questions about why this effect occurs have not yet been answered by researchers. This site (http://www.indiana.edu/~intell/flynneffect.shtml) attempts to explain the issues involved in a way that will better help you to understand the Flynn Effect. It also provides references for further inquiry.”

    I am in college and I hate missing class for any reason. I would have to be really sick to stay home. Previously I have gone to class when I felt dizzy, had a headache, had a cold, had a slight fever, etc. If I was so sick that I had a raging fever or was throwing up, I would stay home. Other than that I am there when the professor calls roll. Just be sure to sneeze into your elbow, wash your hands six times as much as normal, and try not to breath on your fellow students.

    The history of the world is a pretty long one. I think it would be hard to think a thought that has not been thought before at one time or another by one of the trillions of people alive at any time in the past. Just in the past two hundred years the number of inventions seems to point to an increase in individual thought. That being said I don’t think that thoughts should be judged on what other people have or have not thought. My thoughts are individual and unique to me, and therefore are not common.

    in reply to: How do deaf people name a child? #21763

    but I do hang out in the Deaf community and have many Deaf friends. If I was Deaf, I would probably name my child something that was fun and easy to finger-spell such as Ruth. I would not name them something long. My last name is 9 letters long and its really hard to finger-spell. It makes me feel like an armature when I am giving a presentation because I usually ‘stutter’ while signing it. Also I do think that the meaning has a lot to do with it. The other day I met a Deaf women who recently had a baby. When I asked what the little boys name was she told me “Jonah like in the Bible”. Hope that helps.

    Name signs are given by Deaf people to other Deaf people or as a sort of gift to hearing people that they want to include in their culture. They usually mix the first letter of the persons name with a personality trait or physical feature. I have only seen four name signs that could be considered negative and derisive. These signs meant, in essence: stupid, shy, large ego, and crazy. All of the name holders were proud of these signs except maybe the girl called shy, but if she didn’t like it she was too shy to say anything about it. A Deaf person is rarely ‘stuck’ with a name sign if they hate it they can change it, just as they would if it no longer made sense. I once knew a women who’s name sign was based on her long hair, she changed it when she cut her hair short. Your contact was either ignorant or pulling your leg. My name sign was given to me by a very dear friend and means ‘cool’.
