Subject: RE: Sorta BS: Tattoos & Piercings
Hey Les, I heard that, but I also heard another one... that some of the sailors, having been to the Far East, were acquainted with the principles of acupuncture. Supposedly there is a pressure point in the earlobe that when manipulated properly can ward off a headache. Thus they could sorta tug on that earring to ease the pain. I don't know.
