For today's example of "Duh"
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/articl...d=11889732

Quote: Mark Cropp wants to get off the dole, get a job and put food on the table for his family.

But there's one small problem - a giant tattoo saying "DEVAST8" that covers half of his face is proving off-putting for prospective employers.

The Oamaru-born teenager says he had it inked a few months ago, while drunk on homebrew in a jail cell in Christchurch.

He was locked up in 2015, aged 17, for aggravated robbery, after he and a friend pulled a knife on a tourist in Nelson.

The tourist had pulled out of a marijuana sale. Cropp and an associate were trying to sell him a fake "tinnie".

Cropp pleaded guilty in the Nelson District Court to charges of aggravated robbery, escaping custody, assault with a weapon, intentional damage, breach of community work and theft.

Quote:Corrections facilitates access for prisoners to tattoo removal services at low or no cost through Work and Income and a variety of private and non-government organisations, Miles said.

Any applicable cost for the service is funded by the prisoner.

Two offers of access to removal services were made to Cropp but he declined, Miles said.

Quote: He said he had visited job agencies appealing for work.

"One employment place said to me 'I wouldn't employ you with that on you face, I wouldn't even take a second look at you'. I've had other people that just shrugged and laughed at me."

But since putting sharing his plight, he has had a potential scaffolding job offer and has been flooded with well-wishes and suggestions of possible jobs.

People have also suggested growing a beard - he's tried that - or using thick concealer. They've even quoted him for tattoo removal - but he's not sure.

"That's the thing - it's part of who I am. But if it comes down to it, if I have to get rid of it to be a normal person and function in society again, then I have to."

Cropp appealed his 2015 sentence but the High Court at Nelson dismissed the appeal.

Justice Brewer noted Cropp's "significant criminal history", which included convictions for violence and dishonesty.

Would you hire someone who looked like this?

If he's got a skill, it won't matter.

What exactly is his genius?

Oh, he's a dullard, too?

No thanks.

I hold out a bit more hope for him than some of the morons who would be like "no, they have no right to tell me what to do...."

while I understand your point, the point of "perceptive influence" remains the same.....

limted valuation is simply a bad move in any realm....

RE: For today's example of "Duh"
This is something that just gnaws at me. My niece a very vociferous Liberalturd has tats all over her arms and neck. She hates Trump but don't most Liberals do, anyway I can't even look at her Facebook page as it saddens me that my family had to have someone like her in it. Her husband is a tattoo artist so she gets them free.

My wonderment is: Don't these people realize that they WILL get old someday? Her tattoos will be nothing but a splotch of very dull color on their very wrinkly skin and will not even be distinguishable. Oh well, her skin, her life, dumb S.

that's where sound/family values are important .....and why, as an atheist, am pro-religion when rearing....

how 'bout that?

Stinky.....I think you need to hire this young man. Imagine the looks he'll get walking into all those Section 8's in Mississippi.
