Oh, the idiocy

So my sister, in usual idiotic form, has decided that as today would have been my dad's 60th birthday that she's going to go out and get a tattoo. Oh and by the way would I like to come along and get one too?

I suspect that eventually in life I will get some ink but certainly not on a minutes notice. I'm far more careful and methodical for that. I want to draw it out a couple million times as vector art before I start marking up my skin...

It begged the question for me, at what point do you draw the line on remembrance? For example, should I be celebrating the 261th birthday of von Goethe today? No, I shouldn't be, and let me tell you why. IT IS CRAZY TO DO SO! You don't get to keep celebrating birthdays when you're in the ground... at least as far as I'm concerned. :)
