If only there were some kind of giant flaming ball of tanning rays in the sky they could use.

I know, right? plus they have all those gators. Don't get me started about the gators. Do you know Burt Reynolds?

There are a lot of melanomas because people like to spend time outside in Florida, not just at the beach.

I miss the old video rental tanning salon combo

and South of the rest of the states, thus getting a lot of very direct sun.  Texas does too, but in the high summer most Texans stay inside with a sweater on and the AC set to 63 degrees.

If your standard unit of measure for counting things is the McDonald, you might be an extra-shiatty journalist.

The Shunshine State?  You don't say?

I know this is cliche', but the Sun is free.

I got a little too much sun at the golf course on Friday, and I'm in Atlanta.  Why would you need to pay in Florida?
 
2013-12-30 07:16:38 PM
Hot sun +1,350 miles of beaches?  Does that weigh in?

I kid you not, on the east side of A1A, literally RIGHT ON THE BEACH in either Satellite Beach or Indian Harbour there is a tanning salon, something like "Tans on the Beach" or something. Right there, on the beach.

But apparently they have no web presence whatsoever and Google turns up nothing.

I should swing in there on my way to get a Da Kine Diego burrito tomorrow and ask them if they've ever heard of this thing called "the internet."

What is the SPF of special sauce?
 
2013-12-30 07:25:53 PM
So the people who go there are prudes that won't sunbathe topless or in a thong, yet they want no tan lines.

It could be a money laundering place.

If the place is fully booked, and all the customers pay cash, why would they need an online presence?

Plus old people are slow.

They spend more time in the sun just shuffling from their car to their front door than a young person does.

There's only 693 CVS Pharmacies in Florida?  I would have thought there was that many just between Tampa and Naples.

The facts are that the skank unemployment would sky rocket here in Florida without the tanning establishments.  Understand that these are strip joint rejects that were just too skanky to be a stripper skank.

I would like to see the historic avg big mac cost in the US.  That will show us the real inflation rate, not this manipulated figure where they ignore everything but lima beans.

The beer is getting to me.

I had to read this like three times to understand it. Not that it's improperly written, I just didn't get it. Then I spent like five minutes pondering your premise. I'm still at a complete loss.

I've never been in a tanning salon, is this a thing? Are women working at tanning salons really "strip joint rejects?" I'm confused. But that's fairly common for me.

Paying for tanning is perhaps one of the largest indicators of a person's abject stupidity.

I think most natives are smart enough to use sun screen. I'll bet a lot of the older people who move down there already have the onset and aren't smart enough (i.e. men who used to have hair but as they got older it's thinned out) and exasperate it once they arrive.

Ok, ok, maybe I over stated the situation.  Once you shovel off the makeup, you might like them after all your beers.

He's right. Imagine the most vapid, narcissistic, vain, dim-witted chick you can think of; This is the average tanning salon employee (and client, but that's another story).

The owner, however, is usually either a Type-A businesswoman, a hyper former fratboy, or a swarthy middle-aged man who wears too much cologne and also owns a chain of cruddy restaurants.

Howdy neighbor!  I live just down from there.  The tanning salons are for the snowbirds and tourists.  Da Kine is great!!!

I was going to do a GIS and provide a disgusting pic of a tan fatty for the lols, but then I said to myself, Why? Whats my farking problem?  No one will laugh. Some will actually cry. No,,, no, I'm not going to be that guy any more. I can feel the healing process taking hold.

Put an email address in your profile, retard. You do know that they're free and you can set up a throwaway account with no actual ties to yourself, right?

Too lazy to check, but "Schemy123@gmail" or "Schemy1958@yahoo" or whatever is probably available.

That dirty feeling you have inside is your conscience. Heed it, before it's to late. Think of a happier time before Google and go to that place.

Hey, I've gone to a tanning booth.  In Ohio.  In January.  Before going to the Caribbean for 2 weeks.

True, though I confined my comment to the continental US not out of US centrism but rather the headline itself.  I remember when the ozone hole went right over all the southern Australia beaches and 4-5 years later they had a melanoma spike.  Was it late 80s?
 
2013-12-30 08:27:26 PM
They talk about banning teens from tanning booths. It's about the only way you'll get them to put their phones down. I've seen them sitting on the edge of a spa poking away at their phones.

It was overcast.  And I had to be at work during the 6 hours of daylight.

Ugh.

I avoid direct sunlight, why would I ever want to go to a tanning salon?

/a suntan is a sign of skin damage
