    I live in an area where if you don’t have a tattoo you’re considered a freak, so if the military is going to limit its choices, that’ll hurt them in the end.

    And I have one word for you: RECHARGEABLE

    the wii batteries are ridiculously weak. we replace them at least once every two weeks.

    I almost joined the air force in 1994. Now, I had a college degree and thus wanted to be an officer. Part of my paperwork stated that appearance could be grounds for denial and they listed things like piercings and excessive tattoos, although I don’t rmember if it said head or face.

    I have 8 tattoos. all of them are small to medium size and they’re in places likes biceps, hips, shoulder, etc, where I can cover them at work.

    wait…wth? You watch x factor?

      Well we started to watch it and then it got worse and worse… but we’d put time into it…

      I’m so ashamed.

    PS Please keep watching XFactor and other crappy shows. My guilty pleasure is reading your take on it, rather than subjecting myself to watching (read: weeping for humanity).

      Shit. I was afraid of that. Ah well. That’s the beauty of being a drinker. You can lower your IQ to double digits and get some enjoyment out of just about anything.

    Oh my god I’ve been telling people for years now that January Jones is the worst actress in Hollywood. Sure she’s fine for the part of Bettie in Mad Men but if you watch her in anything else you realize that she is doing the Bettie part in every role. i.e. every line is delivered as if she is just reading it off of a piece of paper for the first time. I actually wish they would write her off of Mad Men.

    Oh, and boo at the military for not accepting everyone regardless of tattoos.

      Yes! Isn’t she awful?? I’ve seen Disney animatronic puppets show more emotion. I’ve been rooting for her to get knocked off the show for a while, instead of just knocked up by Jason Sudeikis. That little Lothario…

    Dumb question, but is the policy based on the look or on the health aspect? I know you can’t donate blood, etc. if you’ve had a tattoo in the past year due to possible health complications and contamination or whatever. Either way it’s weird, but I don’t understand much about the military. Or why people watch X-Factor 😉

      The look, because it only applies to certain areas. Blood problems don’t only occur above the collar. I think they just find it a little to wild and crazy for their sense of discipline, but come on… they soldiers, not yacht club managers.

    First of all, I can only imagine you are watching the X Factor for potential blog material. That’s why I started watching The Voice but then I got totally sucked in and am hooked. So, you should too.
    Secondly, tattoos scare me. Those things are pretty much permanent. Piercing my ears was bad enough.

      It’s because by the end of the day I’m so brain dead I’ll watch almost anything… The Voice is a lot better. Love me some Blake Shelton… long tall glass of water…

    Um, most military personnel I know have more ink than a office supply warehouse. Granted, it’s usually in the torso region, but still…seems vaguely unfair.

    You would think the tats would make a soldier more menacing rather than a problem…I hear war paint is effective, why not ink?

    The military is all about standards. When they need to boost their numbers, they get a little more lax with some rules (like allowing tattoos on hands), but when recruiting is good, they can get more picky. Physical appearance is taken seriously. See what happens if you show up to formation with an earring in, stubble on your face, or your hair long enough to touch your ears.

      Nice – I was hoping someone with some insight would help me with this. The “we care less when we have to care less” thing is interesting. Thanks!

    Why does Brittany have to squint every time she speaks?

    I completely agree with you about the body art. Ridiculous on the part of the military!
