I'm with'ya Keith. These uncouth philistines just don't get the wry, poetic humor of XKCD. Ever see The Joy Of Tech?

Mine's doing better since I've been getting regular UV treatments.

Went down that path, cleared it up but that much UV over many years? I don't think so. Had it since I was 19, in the genes of course. Not as bad as some, no arthritis with it, seemed not to make a difference to my social life as long as I didn't let it. One girl I knew cleared hers completely with veterinary mastitis cream, but a feller had it all over and topped himself in the end. At present I do nothing but swim in the sea regularly. When I was playing rugby the first tackle was the worst. Cracked the skin and it was ok for the rest of the game.
Some thread drift eh? Sorry
