    Time to start getting people to advertise "Certified Dork Products" again.

    Of course I'd be more tempted by products advertised on a female's breast, stomach, ass, legs, etc.

    I wish that I was a student. I would certainly wear a tattoo on my forehead.

    I did it once already. My wife and I attended a class by Dr. Mac Bob Levitus at MWNY '02. He said that if we would wear his logo tattoo on our forehead during the convention we could win a copy of his book. He said it was OK if we came to find him. Both of us got a signed copy of his book. He took a picture of us for proof to his friends. :)

    I did it at WWDC 2000 just for grins. I can't remember what it was even that I had the logo of. They were handing out temporary tattoos and applying them and I said "just slap it on my forehead."

    Heck, last year I had my wife shave an apple into my hair.

    Saw this on the local (Providence RI, home of JWU) news back in September or October. I wanted to try it then, and I want to try it now :D

    Is this the mark of the beast? :D

    Back during the dot-com madness when people were desperate for original ways to get their site name publicized, I remember something about getting paid handsomely to put advertising on the side of your car. I could imagine doing that, if the price is right. But my forehead is my own, thank you very much.

    Ok, well consider this. How many hours do you work at a PT job? 15-25 hours max probably. No one has time for a FT job unless they're doing a bs major (and that's not bachelor science either).

    If you get paid $7/hr., then by wearing that you can potentially "work" 25 hours w/o actually "going to work". Yeah people may be laughing at you, but you can be studying/working while others who have regular PT jobs have to drive/commute to their workplace, drudge through the typical PT work, then drive back. The same time (25 hours) are given back to you. I suppose that is the logic behind it.

    Not that i would wear it though, it looks ridiculous.

    But do you have a choice in what the sponsor is....it can be pretty bad if you get one that is less than appealing.

    All sorts come to mind that I won't even start to mention here :D

    the market currently puts collegiate dignity around ¢36/hr, but you can expect that to bottom out with spring break rapidly approaching.

    How do they monitor this anyway? I mean, what's to stop some kid from putting in on and then just taking it off and collecting a paycheck?
