the difference between a "crowd" and a "mob" is one push

the appeal of the so-called beauty mark. Why would anyone want to voluntarily place a dark disfiguring blemish on their skin? Why is it beautiful?

Ditto, tanning.

Not sure why people want beauty marks. Unless they are trying to look like me. I've got moles all over my body. My moles don't much bother me, but it's not like I want more of them, either.

Tanning? Tanned skin can be beautiful. So can pale skin. It all depends on the look you are going for.

I have tan skin (farmer style) but it is because of my job, not because I am trying to attain something. Fortunately for me my wife likes the "farmer tan" look.

lajos got it right

perfection is boring
symmetry is boring if done wrong

if everything's perfect, what's to keep it from being perfectly boring [or perfectly awesome]

visual interest
movement
contrast

You've got to cover up the syphilis sore somehow, and velvet patches are so nice to the touch.

I think they should be called "fugly marks". I don't see where the beauty is in them.

Maybe it's because someone famous has that beauty mark and inspired other women to follow it. I think it was Cindy Crawford that had a beauty mark, or was it marilyn monroe?...


Is this similar to the trend about putting on fake glasses when you don't need glasses? I have to wear glasses because I have near sightedness but only while working in front of the computer or watching tv, and driving, other times they are off. Yet some people, who are blessed with good eye sight, wears fake glasses to look smart. lol...

Oh ya, also, what's up with the pre-dirtied jeans that costs over $100? They look like a painter wore them for years.

The beauty mark has quite a history actually.

The Romans used to put fake beauty marks using kohl on their faces. They were used to highlight the best facial features and also cover pockmarks or other blemishes. I also remember reading elsewhere that they could even signify political leanings.

In the 17th and 18th century Europe it was quite common to have patches in the shape of stars etc. made from different material on the faces. It was quite fashionable and, along with the fan, were part of the language of flirting/coquetry. For example, a patch near the eyes showed interest and a patch near the lips showed the desire to kiss. Both men and women used these.

As for tanning, it's one of those unusual things. Women in Southeast Asia and Japan actually bleach their skins to get paler.

Women in asian countries such as China, Japan and Korea do a lot of skin care to make sure their skin is soft and white! One thing is to avoid the sun! =)
