    Life is death Tech-hopper. Repetitive stress injury is a fact of life. It's sort of a riddle. How do you know you're really good at something? When you require surgery from doing it.

    I myself would be looking forward to an entire generation of deaf, crippled, video game addicts. But alas, I don't think I'll live long enough to get the proper enjoyment from watching them hobble around and go "huh" all day.

    Yeah I know I have a bad attitude. So what?

    I'm more looking forward to the generation of 80 year old men and women covered head to toe in awful tattoos they thought were "the sh*t" when they were in their 20's :D

    I've already had the Rep strain in my thumbs once as a teen...Curse that Mario!

    If someone in their prime smartness get some tattoo(s) on their body, and as they age and become fatter and fatter, unable to freely move, how would that 'inflated' tattoo(s) will look like :rolleyes:

    After sixty years the tattoo's would more than likely be blotchy, or at least indistinct- unless they were re-inked on occasion. Over time the ink trapped in the skin layer settles deeper into the dermis and will spread as it does so.....not that many of these sedentary generation Z'ers are likely to see 80 years.
    @Archean
    Spread tattoo's from weight gain don't look good, but contracted tattoo's from weight loss, loss of muscle tone- and in women who thought it was a great idea to get their breasts inked with a symmetrical design or large animal motif and then breastfeed a brood...well, they can be stunning in their ugliness.

    (and yes, I've been inked, and no, not across the chest....I can look forward to developing moobs without the added folly of bearing a likeness of a Salvador Dali print)

    While We're on the Subject of Expanding Tatoos....

    The nurse was attending to a man in a doctor's office when she noticed at tatoo on his penis. She ran out of the office laughing hysterically, quickly telling the other nurse how the tatoo spelled, "MITY". Curious, the other nurse went in to see for herself. A bunch of banging and screaming was heard, and the nurse ran out of the office, clothes torn, hair disheveled, and crying. As the other nurse was trying to comfort her, she asked, "how could that little thing cause this much damage? The sobbing girl explained, "when it was erect, it spelled, "Minnesota Institute of Technology"!

    Some very good points here on tattoos (or is that tattoos on points?)

    I obviously neglected the fact that 50 or 60 years down the line technology in tattoo removal may well be far more advanced, easier and cheaper to apply.
