I admit I skipped through most of it. Doesn't take much watching to see the crappy riding. I am amazed it took that long to crash!

Really? My university differential equations professor had his WWII concentration camp number tattooed onto his forearm.

Fair enough.

Voluntary tatoos are the mark of a stupid person.

And I'll bet that the tattoo was applied by someone who was just doing his job.

The correct phrase is "just following orders", I believe.

Actually, stupid pronouncements are the mark of stupid people.

Seems prudent to me.

Well, gosh, that seems remarkably like a plan to stay alive in uncertain circumstances. And if you don't think the average public road is uncertain, you may be part of the problem.

Nice one! at least someone here can translate my obvious-to-me sarcasm in my post!

Back to your regularly scheduled "make fun of people at the Gap" program!

Hey Mike, I made that comment...yes, I thought the guys in the booth at the end, who all seemed to be sporting matching tatoos, seemed pretty dang cliche. I thought it was humorous; hence my light-hearted comment.

I didn't say all guys with tattoos are stupid (never even thought it, actually). But, you seem pretty sensitive about the subject. Don't worry about it, man. Everyone uderstands that it's not the tatoos that makes a person stupid. But, stupid tatoos are a pretty good indication that someone stupid is in the near vicinity.
