You could always tattoo an episode of the upcoming DIC comic that gabehabe is putting together...


... just make sure it is a funny one.

So, not programmers, you're saying?


Assuming you run every other day, you sleep an average of 8 hours a night. :bananaman:

Even if I was that lazy, I there would never be a time when I'd sleep eight hours in a night. But no, I typically go for a week or two before I run down.

Personally , I think tattoos are for sheep . But if I ever felt I had to get one it would say 'born to code in C' . It was the best book title I ever saw.

Who sleeps for eight hours? For me it's four on a normal night or twelve, when I come to the end of a run and reset.

Same, yet everyone seems to think I have a weird sleeping pattern.

Consensus opinion: Don't get a code tattoo, unless you want to be naked in the vicinity of Elmo Gabe.

You might have to eat a processor to comply with Intel's strict branding campaign.

I might sketch up that logo for my own tattoo. I have sketched 2 tattoos for friends. Finished a design for a coy fish last night actually. My old roommate is getting it done next week.

Another coy tattoo? First, "coy" is how you say "cock" in Thai- so they aren't popular options here for anybody but the ladyboys, despite a thriving tattoo industry. Second, coy are carp. They eat garbage. They are the ancestor species of goldfish. I suppose they're better looking than catfish, but that's the kind of behavior and diet you're looking at permanently imprinting on a visible portion of your body. If you must get a fish tattoo, go for something that is as cool as it looks. Piranha, lionfish, clownfish, sea horses, pike, puffer fish, arawana, black ghosts, archer fish, the list is endless.

So look, the skill and effort put into that sketch- and probably the others you mentioned- is impressive, and that's not what I'm trying to discourage, but it could be better spent on other (cooler) fish.

Koi, not coy. :P Though that's exceptionally interesting.

In Japan, where the word comes from, koi meaning carp, there's a whole mythology around the things. They are a stable of Japanese art for a reason. In it's basic form, it's all the good stuff you'd expect from the magic fish, luck, happiness, love, wealth. In Japanese, the name sounds similar to affection or love. In Chinese, it's close to profit or fortune. I recall there's a Cinderella style story with a magic carp; Chinese, I think.

They're a Buddhist icon; one of the Eight Auspicious Signs.

I was unaware that any Asian country viewed them in a remotely negative light. I guess Thailand is not a fan.
