Overnight Open Thread – I’ve Got You Under My Skin. No, Really, I Do - (genghis)

Item #1: This story is either really creepy or really touching but most likely equal parts of both.

”OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Dwayne Courtney walked to a tattoo shop to immortalize his beloved friend. Cancer claimed David Comstock four months ago. "One of the biggest things he feared in all the cancer - he didn't fear passing, he didn't fear the cancer itself - he feared being forgotten," said Courtney.”

Ok, you kinda’ know where this is going, right? You’re gonna’ make me spell it out anyways, aren’t you? Assholes.
”Comstock was cremated, and Courtney got some of the ashes. "In this tattoo, there's the ashes of David Comstock," said Courtney. With the permission of Comstock's children, tattoo artist Buddy Green mixed just a little of the ashes into the black. He said he's honored to be doing this for two old friends.

Guess it could’ve been worse. At least he didn’t ask for a taxidermist or something to rig up his friends moustache/sideburns with Velcro so he could wear those as well. ‘Cause that would just be plain strange.

Item #2: This one needs no introduction, explanation or snark. Oddee.com merely provides us with a photo essay of things you might see in the subway. Given that all of these people in the photos are regular overnighters, your job is to match up said photos with the names of your fellow nocturnal commenters. I’ll go first to get things rolling: The guy in the 2nd pic down (with the very short shorts) is obviously Maetenloch. Now it’s your turn.

Item #3: Because I’m just that lazy today, here’s a list from Gizmodo of 10 gadgets for an instant game room.

Tonight’s Overnight Thread is sponsored by the tilde: ~

Mainly because I’m re-reading The Jesus Incident for the umpteenth time and that’s what I always imagine what the Nerve Runners look like.
