I so need one of these.

And one of these.

And one of these.

And definitely one of these to help freak out my friends.

If only they had the Five Fingered Hand of Eris. . .

But they do sell Chaosphere cufflinks. . .

Re: Fuck Tabs

I remember that too. The idea of the tabs as legal tender brings up a few questions that make me doubt that they're actually used that way very often. (Why would the tab recipient be more likely to give sexual favors in exchange for a tab? Because they could then turn around around trade the tab for favors from someone else? Even then, why would someone be more likely to give sexual favors for a tab than they would be for free?) But someone who was less of a geek in middle school might know more about this than I.

Re: Fuck Tabs

In my experience, the original concept sort of translated down to "I'm going to give you this shiny piece of metal in the hopes that you will take pity on my pathetic ass and kiss/fondle/screw me". So, you know, not all that unlike an engagement ring :-P

And (just to take this back on-topic) quite a bit unlike a Necronomicon Gate ring. I hope.

Except that the tab trade didn't require you to say anything squishy and ridicule-worthy, like "I like you, and I'd like to take you to the movies" or whatever one does when one is thirteen.

Or even, presumably, "I like you, and I'd like to kiss/fondle/screw you." Because after all, movies aren't what they want.
