    I believe he was complimenting your mustache, Ubersoft, or he thought you were such a cool person that he'd overlook you being a pedophile. I have some experience speaking the language of awkward.

    I understood what he meant, PG, but you have to admit it's a really screwed up way to go about saying it.

    "Your nose and eyes are so beautiful, like you had plastic surgery!" Said multiple times to me in Korea. Thanks, my fellow countrymen.

    In Korea, as far as I'm aware, having had plastic surgery (or any procedure done) is something of a status symbol. Some people get braces and keep them well after the point they've served their use, just because of that status?

    Might be getting that wrong.

    In my case, the weirdest has to be something that was said to me years ago, by a friend who'd been drinking. "You know, you're just beautiful, and you're even cool, too. If it weren't for your acne, you'd be the perfect woman!" Hard to know what to say about something like that, but now that I've gotten older and I don't break out the way I used to, perhaps I've become perfect! XD

    Palladian that's just weird. Some people have no filter! :P

    Wildbow, I asked my mom if what you said was true and she got this, like, intense, haunted look in her eye and was like YES. IT IS TRUE. "Koreans like to impress each other, so anything they can do to impress each other they will do it." She also noted that the last time she went to Korea, about a year ago, the whole plastic surgery thing had gotten so common that people were talking about eye and nose jobs like it was something they had to take care of, like fixing a cavity or getting a haircut. If you didn't do it, there was an implication of laziness. :/

    Not Korean, but the same general mindset led to this:

    Braces worn for aesthetics.

    Some speculate that advances in genetic engineering will lead to tattoos that are part of the skin, and even different skin colors. Like green skin and maybe bioluminescence. So that'll be fun.

    Have you ever seen what baby teeth look like within the human skull, Amy? Much worse than any simple braces.

    And you probably don't want to look up hyperdontia if you don't care for things that probably scare most people. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to some of that.

    And now, a new entry for the list.

    Amy, has anyone ever told you you shriek real purty?

    With the prevelance of under the skin implants, I don't doubt it. I personally want one that was in a sci fi short story back in teh 70's, where the main character had a watch that as built in. Press on a patch of skin, and his wrist lights up with two internal under the skin lights corresponding to hour and minute hand.

    Also, some people are doing experimentation with highly conductive tattoos. circuit board skin anyone>?
