Probably funny, but I had to stop at "perfectly asymmetrical."
well, crap. This was supposed to include the Hot Woman teaches about Boobs video, but I guess I failed to quote it correctly. Now I can't figure out how to delete my failed post. Ha ha.

Hey Sloanie, I hope you have a shade on your driver's side window, or you slap on some sunscreen while you're on the road...
Striking photo reveals dark side of sunshine
A new striking image of a 69-year-old truck driver shows just how much damage the sun can do.
This photograph, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, shows what dermatologists call dermatoheliosis — sun damage, a common sign of aging. What makes it striking is that this man, a retired truck driver, shows the damage on only one side of the face.
"He was a truck driver for the majority of his life and never wore sunscreen," said Northwestern University dermatologist Jennifer Gordon, who reported the man's case. "We think the sun exposure just on this side of the face is what caused the damage."
Ultraviolet A (UVA) light from the sun can easily penetrate window glass and even light clothing, Gordon told LiveScience. UVA rays cause damage deep in the skin, affecting connective tissues such as collagen and elastin.
"That's where you get that aging effect: the wrinkles, the deposits of material in the skin," Gordon said.
The patient in the photograph came to Gordon and her colleagues after he got tired of his grandchildren asking him what was wrong with one side of his face. So far, the man has not exhibited any signs of skin cancer, Gordon said, though he'll need to be monitored carefully in the future.
The best way to prevent skin cancer as well as early aging is sunscreen, Gordon said. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends using sunscreens that provide a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30, and that offer broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are the primary cause of sunburn. While UVB rays are blocked by window glass, UVA rays are not; even on a cloudy day, up to 80 percent of the sun's UV rays make it through the clouds. The AAD recommends wearing sunscreen on exposed areas of the skin daily, even during winter.
"The biggest thing I've probably learned from this is that you're never safe from the sun," Gordon said.

Perhaps Sloanie could drive trucks in the UK for a few years to balance out the skin damage.
He's got a heart as big as Tito's f*cking head.
Nice. This is really interesting.
