Wadded Beef: cryinoutloud: Yeah, no. I use sunscreen religiously because I spend a lot of time outdoors. Now, I look my age, but it could be a lot worse--I've seen the people who don't use sunscreen.

Yep. Go to the ski slopes and you can tell who the locals are and who doesn't wear sun screen. 25-year-olds look 50 around the eyes.

First time I traveled from the upper Midwest to Colorado and saw people living above 5000 feet without sunscreen I was amazed at the difference in skin appearance.

Do not care.  It prevents me from getting sunburned and that is good enough for me.

Well, no -- it might not keep you from getting skin cancer, but it does stop you from getting sunburns.

A few years ago I accidentally conducted a test on the effectiveness of some 50 SPF by missing a small area on one shoulder before I went out to do some volunteer work in the sun all morning, so that by the time I was done I had one little oval of horribly burned skin. The rest of me was just fine.

After the burn peeled and turned into a tan, it was a really weird spot just hanging out on my shoulder. People kept thinking I had a smudge of dirt or something.

TinyFist: Fun fact: "suntan lotion" was originally invented by some horny kid in Hilton Head who just wanted an excuse to rub regular lotion on women on the beach, promising it would protect them from being sunburned.

This caught on with several other young horny guys, who started patrolling the local beaches offering to lather up any gullible woman who would let them rub lotion on them.

It was only after this nefarious practice had spread across the Southern U.S. some guy figured there might be some merit to a lotion-based treatment to prevent against the suns harmful rays.

I know a guy that owned a jewelry and piercing shop in the state with it's own tag, and when women would come in for nipple or other such naughty parts pierced he would pull out some like precision calipers and tell them they needed to go to the back so he could measure to make sure the piercing was perfectly centered.

Yes gullible women believed him. He was just looking for an excuse to play with boobs.

Dude, the sun is nothing to be toyed with. Wear a hat. Like, always.
