Georgian
Victorian
mid to late1800s American school marm
well, that's a sleeveless French maid blouse, right?
mix-n-match (please explain)

Well, on the plus side - May doesnt need to breathe.

Except possibly for speaking ?

But a speaker would be more efficient for that than actually recreating a human breathing apparatus.
As long as the designers didn't also recreate a digestive tract and have the tubes cross.

Went looking for images of the James Webb Space Telescope to see what might be a good tattoo.
The sun shield is not yet fully deployed in Sam's spray.

There are lots of "cool S" tattoos on the internet. Some obviously home done.

Breathing would be an interesting cooling solution, more human like than a spinning fan. A large heatsink on the lungs and a diaphragm to move hot air out and cool air in. Also, given the right technology, you'd have much more "expression" in voice than it's practical to code (I guess).
Also, I'd add that breathing is also a way to have the sense of smell.

I'd never thought about it before - and yeah, I suppose you can buy just about anything online - but... a tattoo gun? To anyone who wants it - even a minor?   :?

Yeah, that tends to worry me too....

The sites usually ask for age when you create an account. Not that it'll stop folks from lying, but it's about all that they can do.

In Brazil, you're required your CPF number (quite similar to social security number in USA) in order to create an account in pretty much any online store. It's linked to your age, so, a minor wouldn't do it unless using the information from an adult.

Right, forgot about that insurmountable age verification internet check point.  Always stopped me dead in my horny little teenage tracks when looking for pornography...  :evil:

Also, how do you get images on here?  I went back thru the archive and found a great tit for tit comparison on May 3.0 that I combined and cropped, but I cant figure out how to attach, insert, copy/paste, or otherwise. Are forum noobs locked out of image posting to keep the spam down?

I seem to recall being asked for it at a supermarket as well. My Portuguese was terrible, so I had to stumble through figuring out what they were asking for, and how to explain that Iím a foreigner and donít have that number.

You can't upload images to this forum.  You need to host them somewhere (any of the widely used image-hosting sites will do, e.g. imgur.com).  Once hosted, you can embed them in a post using the [img] tag (under the bold tag in the menu when writing a post).

They normally ask, but it's not necessary, you can decline. Of course, if it's a physical store, and it's simple items such as groceries, clothing, that kinda stuff.

Pretty much anything beyond the age verification starts getting dystopic real quick. Using one's SSI/CPF/whatever number is even a bit dystopian depending on how it's used to verify a user's age. Not to mention a cyber security risk.

You can actually get lactose free milk though - or at least you can get it here (Australia). I wonder why that wasn't suggested. It tastes exactly like regular milk in my opinion. You can also get tablets to take when you do have lactose (one of my friends has them). They probably don't help much if you have lots of lactose all the time but - as I understand it - they can help if you normally stay away from lactose but have some at one meal for a special occasion. Perhaps Jeph hasn't encountered these options, or maybe we'll see them mentioned in future.

My daughter uses those tablets when she has a meal with dairy. We've bought the lactose-free milk (which is just regular milk with lactase added) a couple of times but she has not been willing to try it - even after getting me to taste some to verify that yes, it does taste exactly like normal milk and not weird.

.....Acidophillus milk or milk that's had the lactose removed? Because I can assure you that acidophillus milk very much does not taste like normal milk.

They reckon that your taste buds will perceive lactose free milk as sweeter than ordinary milk due to the lactose having been broken down into simple sugars. I didn't notice any difference personally but to be fair to the article, I also didn't try to do a side by side comparison with a glass of regular milk. I did, however, try the lactose free milk straight out of the carton (not on/in/with something else) and it tasted just like regular milk in my opinion. I haven't ever encountered acidophilus milk so I can't comment on that.

I'd have to try it again. It's been a long while since I've gotten acidophilus milk. I normal get unsweetened almond milk.

Exactly the same here, I tried it on its own and it just tasted like normal milk to me.
