I love to see new and inventive ways of measuring the passing of time, and especially I love this fabulous "Digital Calendar" (haha) that Bre Pettis laser-etched onto his fingernails.
If by "fabulous" you mean "a insipid waste of time", and by "calendar" you mean "an uneven yellowing list of the names of the month without any actual dates", then yes, I agree.
Sorry for the double-post. The system hung on me.
"calendar" schmalendar: I wanna iPodNail!
How accurate would that be? Do fingernails grow at a regular pace? I'm pretty sure that differing nutritional conditions, and some diseases, can lead to slower nail growth.
And if he gets one of them caught in a car door or something equally unfortunate it will all have been a bit of a waste.
What if he gets a hangnail? Does he time travel?
