    Interesting list. Well, I didn’t know there were legal issues with circle lenses. I bought a bunch for my models. And #8, yes, I have a kid that tech’s all night sleeps most the day. We used to confiscate his electronics at bedtime, I guess we have to start that again.

    I gotta beg to differ on the piercings claim. Unless they’re doing it themselves with needles (which is extremely risky for disease transmission or infection) it is safe. Yes, sometimes infections happen, and some piercing parlors are less than reputable. But like any purchase (especially something that is modifying your body) you have to shop around for quality.

    I have my nose pierced and I went to a place that looked like a hospital where they actually performed the piercings. Yes, infections happen, but if you don’t care for the piercing (essentially just like any other wound) that will happen. And it’s the piercee’s fault in 90% of the cases.

    The REAL trouble is 13 year old kids trying to get away with it behind their parents backs or anybody not going to a clean facility.

    I was 22 when I got my nose pierced, and I shopped around, just like any good consumer should! The same could be said for tattoos, but I’m not ever getting one for religious purposes.
