(NBC News)   The tanning industry has joined forces to form a lobbying group designed to combat all the vicious lies being spread by hostile scientists about the dangers of UV exposure and promote a "fair and balanced" look at their industry. Hm, sounds familiar   (openchannel.nbcnews.com) divider line 18

Mr Guy: mgshamster: Or it may have something to do with genetics. Perhaps those with ancestry closer to the equator prefer darker skin, and those closer to the poles prefer lighter. I don't know; it's just per speculation.

Actually, for me, it's how rich and full her lips are on the left. I associate the pale pinkness on her cheeks and the pale pinkess on her lips with potential warning signs of a respiratory infection.


Are you some sort of medical robot?

The color of the girl's skin takes a backseat to her willingness to sleep with me.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

xanadian: Cythraul: Diogenes: Cythraul: Isn't there a certain level of tanning exposure that's healthy?

I think is the better question.

Yeah, but is getting enough exposure to sunlight to cause your skin to change a shade of color too much exposure?

Our ancestors used to run through the savannah buck-naked and came out all right.

...

Oh, hell, what do I know? Maybe skin cancer was the #1 killer back in the paleo age.


I don't know about you, but all my ancestors are dead. Coincidence? I think not!!!!

Well the "Fair and Balanced" crowd are already in the pockets of the indoor spray tanning industry, so good luck with that.

Clearly tanning beds with more then a 10 bulb capacity should be banned. If....if only one child is saved it will be worth it.

T.rex: i wear underwear in there, which answers all your questions... I'm more worried about picking up some bed bugs or bacteria than i am, cancer.


Are you sure? Because bed-bugs with tans are dead sexy.

Man, I'm starting to feel like it. Once I taught myself how to look, I can't NOT see those sorts of things, you know?


Yeah you're drilling down pretty far. I can pick up on general cues, but if I had that level of analysis going on I'd probably never leave the house without a hazmat suit.

Mr Guy: amquelbettamin: Mr Guy: doczoidberg: Pale chicks are always hotter than tanned chicks.

Why do some people still waste their money on that nasty habit?

That's a vicious lie. We're genetically programmed to prefer "healthy" looks, which include color in the face and skin. Tanned skin is one visual indicator of a diet rich in anti-oxidants, which is something we're biologically programmed to prefer. You can test that with small children who haven't let their taught fear of cancer overcome their instincts to prefer symmetry and signs of good health and nutrition. Infants prefer to look at a tanned symmetric face.

Counterpoint:

You honestly believe the pale version is superior? I find when I look at the picture, my eyes are drawn left.


My eyes are drawn to where her boobies would appear if she'd only stand up.

A lobbying group attacking scientific consensus. Any bets this won't appear in the 2016 GOP convention platform?

For some reason I read tanning in the definition of making leather... which I suppose you could argue is what some people do to their skin in tanning booths. But I kept thinking "PETA is at it again".
