One of my profoundest regrets about being human is that I am not equipped with a splendid and useful tail, like many other members of the animal kingdom.

I am sure that, with a little thought, the genetics chaps could come up with some scheme which would enable people to grow the tail of their choice, fully functional.

This would be a fascinating cultural phenomenon. A tail could be an additional emotional indicator, as well as (if of the prehensile variety) a useful third hand, for holding umbrellas and the like.

Whole new sections of the clothing, hairdressing and pornography industries would come into being. Religious fanatics would grow tails, solely for the purpose of being ashamed of them and tucking them away in the trousers. Tyrannical regimes would gleefully lop off their subjects tails for minor transgressions.

The possibilities are vast.

       The sure sign of a mature technology is its adoption by the pornography industry - we saw it with the VCR, the telephone and the internet. I think the genetically engineered tail would be taken up pretty quickly.
hippo, Jul 24 2000
  

       Other way around...Pornography provides the impetus, then 'mature industry' picks it up. How many movies on DVD take advantage of the multiple camera angle ability? And how many of them aren't porn movies?
StarChaser, Jul 26 2000
  

       Umm - dunno. Not my area of expertise :-)

I did remember at the weekend though, I once read that some hundreds of years ago there was a minor royal family some of whom had small tails, thanks to generations of inbreeding (so, a similar kind of deformity to the Hapsburg Lip).
Inbreeding also caused some characters in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude to have small tails.

       I once had a cat named Lucy - a big, fluffy, white cat with a matching tail. That tail was the subject of much envy: it was an accessory, a statement of mood, and a method of dismissal. I want a tail like Lucy's.

       Starchaser- This may be pretty obsolete now, but I have a few pornos on DVD with multiple angles. Vivid Video uses it quite a bit, but it isn't really a different angle, just different footage of the same scene. Ahem.
AfroAssault, Nov 17 2000
  

       That's what I meant. Beta died because the people who ran it didn't want to let it be used for porn. Secure servers on the internet were developed mostly so people could buy porn without getting their card numbers scammed (Any more than by the porn site, anyway).   

       About the only technology not driven by porn is computers, CPU's and video cards...that tends to be driven by gamers.

Most people rekon I'm unstable, or that I was dropped on my head when I was a nipper- I shouldn't have mentioned the stapler idea. Place your order- One tattooed prehensile monkey tail coming up!

absterge, May 04 2001
  

       'Furries'--we certainly have a mammalocentric view, eh? Nobody mentioned a lovely finny fishtail or a lean and whiplike lizard tail. How about a black gothic scorpion tail curled over your left shoulder? Well, there's absterge--is that an alien tail? To be quite frank, my first thoughts were all of the furry variety too. And of course our genes probably favor that kind anyway.
Dog Ed, May 05 2001
  

       Actually no. Reptiles, birds, insect/oids, dragons and other mythological critters are all 'furry' by courtesy. One of my best friends is a bluejay, and I myself am a part-time dragon. And mech. Ask me nicely sometime and I'll show you...We call ourselves 'furries' because the vast majority ARE mammalian, but everybody's welcome.
StarChaser, May 05 2001
  

       I didn't realize that, StarChaser. Interesting world you inhabit. Still, most of the annotations here referenced mammalian tails. That's interesting in a kind of have-nothing-better-to-think-about way, I guess.
Dog Ed, May 07 2001
  

       Would still have to have muscles installed in the lower back to move it. Tails <Mammalian, at least> do not have their own muscles, much like fingers. They're moved by tendons and ligaments...

       I have a fishtail...but no legs. All things considered, legs are much more useful from my point of view.
salmon, May 07 2001
  

       Careful what you wish for, Salmon. Remember the deal the Little Mermaid <Not the disney abortion, the other one> made...
StarChaser, May 07 2001
  

       um, I thought leathery/scaly tails had muscles. If you were to cut off a lizard's tail (and I don't know from firsthand experience, this is purely conjecture and hearsay), wouldn't it writhe around a bit without being connected to any tendons? Certainly, squirrel tails and the like aren't muscle, but muscly tails must exist, no?
absterge, May 07 2001
  

       Lizard tails do...I did say 'mammalian, at least'...
StarChaser, May 07 2001
  

       Few women have sexual needs that involve deep penetration to begin with; that's mostly just a male fantasy. (The place that you like to think you can stick your dick to make us feel like real women is where we stick a tampon five days a month and forget about it for most of the day.) There are very few nerve endings in a vagina. Check further up and outside for the fun parts, and yes, we have hands.   

       [Ejs, if you want to argue with me, respond to what I'm saying, not to what you think it sounds like. You're trying to argue from selective anecdotal evidence. A better measure of vaginal vs. clitoral preferences among women would be to compare the number of dildos sold, minus those intended for a male recipient, to the number of vibrators sold. My local sex toy store happens to be Good Vibrations, which stocks a large selection of dildos and targets women; they happen to publish their top ten bestselling toys. Vibrators: 8. Dildos: 0. Admittedly, one of the vibrators is part of a G-spot kit, and of course some of the buyers are men.]   

       Nevertheless, a nice bushy tail might be interesting for both sexes ... mhh. Furr.
ping, May 18 2001, last modified May 22 2001
  

       Ping, you make it sound like women don't enjoy vaginal sex, and just put up with it so they can get direct clitoral stimulation later. You should go to your local sex toy shop and check out who's buying dildoes-- it's women, straight and gay (who also have hands).   

       Besides, we men don't stick our dicks there so you can feel like real women, we stick it there so we can feel like real men. ;)   

       Anyway, back to tails: As a baby step towards this, I'm going to strap a boa constrictor to my lower back, after I've implanted electrodes in its brain so I can control its movements with a joystick. In return, the boa constrictor will get to see what it's like having arms and legs. It doesn't get a joystick, though.
ejs, May 21 2001
  

       Actually, I'd rather have an elephant's trunk myself. It's a much more useful appendage than even the most prehensile of tails. The tip of it can grasp like a hand, taste like lips (I think) and snort like nostrils. Like having a big, wiggly Swiss Army knife stuck onto the front of your face.... Cool.

I infact am going to make some trousers with a monkey tail attachment so I can hold an umbrella or a sign or put my tail around some lovely girls waist. I am interested to learn more about this 'furries' group of Starchaser's. I want a cool monkey tail sooo much. Please Starchaser put up a url for the furries thing I want to meet other people who want tails. I know I probably can't get a real one. I want to however work on one I can control rather than one that has to be static until manipulated by hand. I am so plesed other people want a tail to. I thought I was alone until now.

Monkeyboy2, Jul 25 2001
  

       Look at the 'What is a furry' link I posted earlier. There's a couple of good things on how to build tails, but they seem to be tango-uniform at the moment. I'd like to see one that would be controllable, myself; I've seen some ideas on it, but never a real one.
StarChaser, Jul 26 2001
  

       Hey thanx starchaser. Well I think I am a furry. I am going to make that monkey tail. Infact I want to have a whole monkey suit. If anyone finds a way of building a prehensile tail that works on its own please tell me I will love to know how to.
Monkeyboy2, Jul 27 2001
  

       "Orgasmic Gardening" and "Butt Bra" may have done nothing for StarChaser's ability to feel sexual pleasure, but he, like every other person ever to see the ideas, was polite enough to not throw a bizarre tantrum over them.
Monkfish, Jul 27 2001
  

       Mephista, I invite you to read my annotations and my webpage, and show me where I said anything about wanting a tail for sex. I mentioned porn as a reply to Hippo saying that the VCR was adopted by porn purveyors. It had nothing to do with tails.   

       Labeling something a rant before someone else does doesn't make it less offensive. Being a furry, people already assume that I fuck animals, without knowing me at all. Try learning a little bit before whipping out your broad brush.   

       'Bizarre tantrum' is a good description of your bitching. I was asked a question, and I answered.   

       Don't make generalizations about things you don't understand.
StarChaser, Jul 28 2001
  

       Hold up, Mephista, what's this shit about me and tails and sexual stuff? I personally would NOT like a tail, nor would I want to use one for sex. So maybe I own a few "mature videos," that's nothing compared to the child molestors, rapists, and all the other shitheads running around the streets as we speak.
Face it: Many people have fetishes. Mine goes no further than having tendencies towards girls who are shorter (not midgets, mind you). Is there something sick and wrong with that? Does that mean if the girl isn't around 4'11" I won't have anything to do with her? No, it doesn't. Here's a thought: Do you have a favorite color/song/book? YOU DO?! THAT'S A FETISH! YOU'RE SICK AND CRAZY AND BUILD HUTS OUT OF ROCKS AND EAT CARDBOARD AND ALL THE OTHER STUFF PEOPLE WITH FETISHES DO!
Let me restate: I do NOT find anything sexually appealing about a tail. You very much misrepresented me. People who are quick to slap labels and cast stones on others are VERY often people with dirtier hands than those they criticize. You can tell me you disapprove of anything I do, but do NOT falsely assume who I am or what I do.
AfroAssault, Jul 30 2001
  

       mephista - read Starchaser's Jul 26 2000 annotation as to why I commented about pornography. You obviously know me better than I know myself, as how you suddenly decided that I must harbor nothing but evil sexual thoughts with tails just because I made a sidenote on DVDs, which has nothing to do with tails. Using YOUR assumption guidelines, I can safely assume that you like to burn children at the stake in your backyard, shoot at your neighbors with a sawed off shotgun, and knit. How do I know these things? Because you used the word "humorous," and anyone who comments about things being humorous, which isn't directly related to tails being used for sexual matters, does these things. Oh, and you're commenting about sexually using tails, which BY GOD means you are the Queen Master Goddess of Using Tails For Sexually Exploiting People, Animals, and Cars for Fun and Profit.

My first annotation had NOTHING to do with using tails sexually, and yet your psychic powers gave you the ability to see straight through this and into "THE REAL ME," the one who thinks about nothing but hot sweaty Tail Sex. Maybe you should have a psychic line! I'd call it!
"Mephista! Help! What should I do with my life?" I'd say.
"Stop thinking about Tail Sex you damn dirty ape!" you'll scream at me.
"I was actually thinking about tanks running over Kung-Fu ninjas, but since you are Grand Master Psychic I must have actually been thinking about hard pounding Tail Sex! What a fool I am!"
"You are scum! Die! I summon Pokemon!"
"nnoooooooo!!"

       Given the sexual overtones of the number of 'For' votes currently standing at 69, I don't know if I should change my vote from For to Negative or Neutral. If I change it and somebody else comes along and votes for it, then it will be in the 69 position again. Then If someone else changes their vote to Negative or Neutral, and someone else comes along it will be going right back to 69 yet again. If some evil person amongst us sees that a member has swollen the count to beyond 69, they may try to manipulate the other members by applying slight pressure in order to get back into the 69 position. Then again, if those who have cast negative or no votes in the past change their votes to 'For', the tables may turn and go to say - 77, with 77, you get 8 more. There are those who have their hands tied, albeit losely - yet still show no resistance - perhaps they are submissive. There are others who display dominant characteristics, even though it appears they have assumed the missionary position. Naaaaah - Ithink I'll leave my vote to 'For' for the time being.
thumbwax, Aug 01 2001
  

       The idea is about humans with tails. Obviously if some humans think lewd thoughts in connection with mention of the idea, the same lewd thoughts would come into play if the idea were to be implemented somehow. So it seems perfectly legitimate then to discuss any possible sexual aspect of the notion.

       I have seen squirrels sit in one place and move their rear end side to side, flicking their tails left, right and forward. They look cute when they do this.   

       My mention of piercing was adding a bit of reality into the discussion; tails tend to be mostly fur, then skin and bone, nothing much to pierce.   

       Someone, somewhere, finds EVERYTHING sexual. Cars, baseballs, power tools <like saws. Get your mind out of the gutter. I don't like the crowding...> the bible. If this offends you, you're going to spend a lot of time offended.   

       You intrepreted my annotations as being 'approving' of porn, when for the most part, they were neutral at best. Look up the history of the Beta tape format for yourself, and see why there aren't Beta home units anymore.   

       As it happens, I DO approve of pr0n. It does not hurt anyone <Aside from kiddy porn, which is an equine of an entirely different chroma>, despite all the wailing about how it 'exploits' women. <I know a lot about computers, thus I exploit my abilities and get paid for it, while my employer exploits me to get calls answered and get paid. The women have attractive bodies, and exploit this asset to make money, or for the thrill of showing themselves off.>   

       I didn't feel that 'defend(ing) the idea that tails are something other than pornographic.' was necessary, as the annotations were humorous. Not to mention the fact that humans will use ANYTHING for sex. Fingers, toes, tongues, ears, toys, fruits, vegetables, unbalanced washing machines.   

       In short <too late...> I feel you're wildly overreacting to a bit of humor to begin with, and to 'pornography = EEEEVIL!' in general.

       It would be great only if you could choose what kinda tail. Just think if you got stuck (sic) with a porcupine tail. This would also have an impact on the rocking chair industry big time. It might hurt too if it got slammed in a car door, or an elevator door... any kind of door in fact...now a kangaroo tail would be cool... BOING, BOING and your at the front of the line. The uneven bars in a Gymnastics tourney would take on a whole new dimension. It might even help a drunk in walking the white line. Just think, your aunt could use a little spit on the end of her tail and wipe a bit of grime off your face. Polite people would still use a tissue after a juicy sneeze. There would be gangs of Striped tails. My cat would be jealous (he's a Manx!)

       Back to the subject, I would love to have a tail. Although it might get in the way sometimes, it would have many advantages. I want a long one with long, soft, thick fur. However, there might be a problem with shedding...

       Guys, guys, guys...no reason to get upset. It's okay to have more than one opinion presented here. That's the fun in 1/2Bakery, right? On tails for humans: I'm a big fan of the fish-tail idea...think of how fast you could swim with such a marvelous appendage! English Channel? Pshaw! Too simple...
MonumentInGreen, Nov 03 2001
  

       Seems to me it would be possible to surgically build a small, moveable tail from bits and pieces taken from elsewhere on one's body. It might be troublesome in some chairs and on dirty thrones in public tiled rooms, but I'd have one just so's I could wag it back at my happy dog. Might learn something from the dog with that sort of silent conversation.

       Yeah, me too. Well, ah, I just signed up out of pure boredom, but now I'm still bored. I think I know how they can do the horses tails: they can easily graft hair to the end of the spinal column. For just tails in general, I think they should take the DNA of an animal, and then maybe go from there. Yeah, yeah, I bet my little plan has about a million mistakes-- but it's a start, right?
Turin, Nov 23 2001
  

       Only one big mistake. Genetic modification does not work on individuals. You cannot have your specific DNA changed.   

       And They don't 'graft hair to the spinal column'.
StarChaser, Nov 24 2001
  

       does the tail have to be organic? (sorry if any mention of this has already been made) but a little metal or wooden contraption might be useful with a battery operated motor for wagging motion. Clip it to your clothes.
po, Nov 25 2001
  

       A poor substitute, but one that thousands of furries resort to. Not wood or metal, tho...

       The count stands at 98+ for this. I must confess I remain completely baffled by the outpouring of support for this concept. I shall not fishbone, however, as I clearly do not understand enough to make a sound judgment.   

       Perhaps we can rename this idea to "Tails for Everyone except waugsqueke".
waugsqueke, Jan 18 2002

LeighBoy, Jan 28 2002
  

       Hey! wow this is amazing! i always thought i was crazy for wanting a tail. lol guess not. I always imagined having a large thick tail. I'm a snorkler/scuba diver and thing it would be really cool to have a thick tail kinda like an aligators or an otters to help me swim at high speeds through the water or a whip like tail would be cool to. To use it to pick up things like another hand and maybe as a martial arts tool or weapon. wouldn't it be so cool!!
hooger43, Feb 03 2002
  

       // ... one that thousands of furries resort to ... //   

       There are _thousands_ of furries? I'm not understanding what the concept of 'furry' is all about.
waugsqueke, Feb 04 2002
  

       Excuse me, everyone involved in the whole furry thing, if I'm wrong about this, but I thought I'd interject.   

       Isn't there a show on M.T.V. about furries, just in case anyone is curious? From what I have seen of it, it mostly just exploits the sexual side of the whole furry business. Just thought I'd add a comment about this, as I too am somewhat bemused by the whole tail idea.
Pseudonym #3, Feb 04 2002
  

       Tens of thousands. FurryMUCK, the largest and oldest MUCK, had eight thousand characters as of seven years ago. I haven't seen stats since...Read the first link waaay up there...   

       Pnym3: No, I didn't know that. When is it on?
StarChaser, Feb 07 2002
  

       Yick, that MTV special was just an attack piece. Hey, look at all the plushies, zoofiles and other furr-verts. Be glad you missed it.   

       Personally, I think a tail would be nice, but I'd sooner take wings or improved senses like eagle/hawk distance vision, bat's radar or canine sense of smell. I can emote well enough already (atleast in person, we are all limited in our internet emoting where tails won't help).   

       To bring up an old thread-- Yes, Porn has driven it's fair share of innovations. They were the early implementers of Real, and Quicktime products(Microsoft is again a latecomer to new markets). But the computer itself was mostly driven by the need to accurately calculate balistics for artillery. War beats porn as the overall best motivator to develop new technologies. I like war much better than porn.
Aspera, Mar 28 2002
  

       "furr-verts"... hehe, great word.   

       One would imagine that having a canine sense of smell would make life virtually unbearable. Most cities generally smell bad enough as it is, without amplification.   

       I'd take talons, if offered.
waugsqueke, Mar 28 2002
  

       Not surprised that the MTV thing was an attack piece. Most of them are.
StarChaser, Mar 28 2002
  

       You know, if you had a really fluffy tail it would require a lot of maintenance- as you'd have to brush it every day if you didn't want it to get matted up.   

       It would be nice to have a short-furred tail, though :)
rythil, Mar 29 2002
  

       I dunno... Positive aspects of tails: Utter coolness. Emotional expression. Outlet for furries. Sexual aspects (yes, there are some, with any part of the body. Ask a foot fetishist.) Possible use for offense.   

       Negative aspects: Chairs. Slamming doors (ouch). Stupid brats who enjoy harming people. Stigma. Toilets (how the heck do you do that with a tail? Let alone the positioning, what if it gets in the way?). Getting the danged thing to work.   

       I think I'd have to stay neutral on this. Although I would like a nice thick reptilian tail to thwock people with if I get sufficiently peeved.
Delcan, Apr 09 2002
  

       This one just keeps coming up.   

       Why a tail, when there are so many other animal physical characteristics that would be more useful to us? Chameleon pigmentation. Cloven hooves. Ink sacs. Regenerative dentition. Dual iguana penises.
waugsqueke, Apr 10 2002
  

       Prrrr... I'm furry, and I want tail, too. =^.^= (and, mind you, furry is NOT about zoophilia or whatever). So far, I have a nice leopardtail I proudly wear on weekends, but I want something more purrrrrmanent... And controllable, too... BTW, recent studies proved that the brain would accustomize to a new appendice over a rather short period of time.

       With a name like "Mephista" is she serious? sigh. no, that's not fair of me. How's this- I think about sex and literature constantly. I have always wanted a prehensile tail, but never for sexual activities- I'd think of it as sticking my foot somewhere. yuk. I would love to hold tails with my boyfriend as we walk down the street and to tease my cat with my tail. I could use my tail to direct the mouse while I'm surfing online!! yay!
captivity, Jun 28 2002
  

       There is a sci fi short story (forget by who, was 40 years ago) where everyone on earth is born with a tail, after a certain date. One of the consequences is that you have to sit backwards on toilets.. but they lower the tanks & make them into tables.. and people born 'pre tail' make mock tails to pretend they are younger! I gotta say, those 'tail on a belt' things kids wear seem fun for the 4 year old set.
pfperry, Jun 29 2002
  

       There are so many possible uses for a tail, and so many different kinds. It's hard to decide. On the one hand(or other appendage), a nice bushy squirrely one would be lovely on land, but wouldn't be any help at all in the water, too much hair.   

       Maybe big strong legs with webby toes to go with it?   

       And a side order of claws, for climbng trees and picking up nice fresh onion rings without burning my fingertips. And the human tongue is ditressingly short, what if I want gecko-style eyes with those nice clear hard covers. I'd need a longer tongue to lick them clean.   

       Maybe scales too...   

       I'm either a furry or just plain weird. :)

       The more well-endowed males of the planet could always just... improvise
NickTheGreat, Jul 03 2002
  

       instead of genetics (which allows no choice for the recipient) use (semi) existing medical technology with metal/plastic bones and muscle and skin grafts to construct a tail from scratch. nervous system would be difficult (nigh on impossible), both to make and connect. to start with they would be short, bald kangaroo/lizard-style tails, further variation would take longer to develop.

       For over two years now, I've watched this idea bounce in and out of the recent list and I'm amazed that, in all that time, nobody has mentioned how difficult it would be to lay down in the bath if you had a tail.
DrBob, Sep 16 2002
  

       I cannot see a problem with bathing at all [bob]. they are quite pliable after all. a prehensile tail could hold the soap - how neat would that be?
po, Sep 16 2002
  

       Quite interesting to see how the HB has evolved. An idea like this posted now would be pelted with fishbones and be mfd'ed for "Genetic Engineering Magic". One would hypothetize that as the HB population grew, and ideas of this nature became more common, genetic engineering became an annoyance and evolved into downright taboo.
BinaryCookies, Sep 16 2002
  

       Movie critics give this idea two tails way, way up.   

       This is a little off-topic but, Ive seen online that the human genome project is complete, so where are all the the wonderful advancements we where promised? But back on topic, if anyone actually started using our gene info we could all probably get a tail, if we could afford it...
Charlesr1, Oct 19 2004
  

       [For over two years now, I've watched this idea bounce in and out of the recent list and I'm amazed that, in all that time, nobody has mentioned how difficult it would be to lay down in the bath if you had a tail.]   

       I disagree - that would only be trouble if you based your tail on a velociraptors' tail. On the other hand, something canine/ feline/ draconic/ whatever would tend to be plenty flexible, at least (especially?) near the base of the tail.
Chrontius, Oct 19 2004
  

       My MFD got lost in the crash. But here’s another: [marked–for–deletion] genetic magic and let’s all have tails (or wings, or four stomachs, or elephant trunks).

etherman, Nov 24 2004
  

       Yeah, MFD all you want, but there's far too much here to throw away. Also, it's not simply 'genetic magic'. There's people in the mainstream medical community (well... not sure how mainstream, but there's doctors and professors :) ) who believe that human *wings* are possible; tails should be pretty trivial using vat-grown tissue.
Chrontius, Nov 30 2004
  

       Nothing's sacred.
bristolz, Nov 30 2004
  

       There are also people in the mainstream medical community who think the world was built in seven days by a chap with a beard... And possibly even more worrying, some that really believe that Liverpool are the best team on merseyside!
  

       Scary stuff!
MikeOliver, Dec 01 2004
  

       I think we all know deep in our hearts that this is verging on magic. The reason it shouldn't be deleted is that it is a superb idea, thoroughly explored and resonant with many HBers.

This one's had the rules bent for it because it's just that good.
DocBrown, Dec 01 2004
  

       Well, that’s a matter of opinion. In any case, it was anticipated by humorist H. Allen Smith, who wrote “The Age of the Tail” some fifty years ago.
ldischler, Dec 01 2004
  

       //Well, that's a matter of opinion//
Like pretty much everything on here, then [ldischler]? Current opinion seems to be pro-TFA in an approximate 3:1 ratio.
DocBrown, Dec 01 2004
  

       Smith also wrote such notables as “A Short History of Fingers” and “How to Write Without Knowing Nothing.” (I intend to study that latter book as soon as the library opens.)
ldischler, Dec 01 2004
  

       I like the sound of his autobiography "To Hell in a Handbasket" and an article he wrote called "Nobody knows more about Chilli than I do". Thanks for the tip.
DocBrown, Dec 01 2004
  

       //I think we all know deep in our hearts that this is verging on magic//   

       Erhm... *medical technology* is what's verging on magic, in all honesty. Wired News just today had an article that rased the prospect of genetically engineered cells that turn into stem cells without going through the embryo phase, and using these to grow *replacement parts* for *people*.   

       Just trying to keep this in perspective.
Chrontius, Dec 07 2004
  

       if everyone had a tail, the world would be a better place. if i had a foxes tail, my world would be better. although, the people at my job would look at me funny.

clementedelacuadra, Jan 04 2005
  

       //There are also people in the mainstream medical community who think the world was built in seven days by a chap with a beard... //   

       Not seven literal days, and not even a literal beard. That's merely the stereotype. I hear people are finding interpretations that actually agree with modern scientists' beliefs....   

       Now back on topic, I made a post here a long time ago, which got deleted in that October crash. I'll try to go over it again, but better and more rationally than before.   

       Now it's not easy to be un-biased about it, being semi-furry myself. I do feel much like Blue Fox, though to a lesser extent, and with strong feelings that this is quite an eccentric idea. And yet... //Movie critics give this idea two tails way, way up.// ...how much I'd like to be able to hold two up....   

       //... let's all get tails so we have one more thing to judge eachother by... //, //My tail is bigger than yours//, etc.   

       As we actually get to -choose- the qualities of this appendage, I don't see how that makes this different from any other bodily decoration (like big earrings or long hair).   

       //One of the special interest groups at furry conventions is often Furgonomics. Where does one put the tail or wings...//   

       I find it quite fascinating myself. I haven't thought about it all that frequently, but surely new clothing designs can evolve if any popularity ever arose for this new appendage.   

       //Do people fidget with their hands and fingers because we no longer have a tail to wag? Just thinking...//   

       Good thinking indeed. Is it not true that you'd expect nervous animals to have fidgety tail movements, and not paw movements?

putterling, Apr 25 2006
  

       If you consider that embryos have a tail at some point and that tails are in our genetic history we are actually quite close to being able to make this a reality IMHO.   

       I was having a discussion with friends about technology and asked "If you could have any technological or genetic physical enhancement, what would it be". Tails were not mentioned, but wings were.   

       I believe that within my lifetime, having a fully functional tail will be an option.   

       edit: and it's not only the porn industry that srurs invention, the military do too. I think they'd find the idea of a usable tail interesting.

Ling, Jun 04 2006
  

       what about a screw on tail with a metal plate, kinda like the screw in mohawk peircings some have, placed in the lower back, probobly attatched to the pelvic bone. There would be small electrode pads placed over, or electrodes grafted into the muscles of your butt, that would make the tail move kinda like prosthetics that can open and close the hands with movements of the chest muscles. The tail would probobly have to be made of superlight materials so it wouldnt seriously screw up your posture..
rascalraidex, Aug 17 2006
  

       also.. as far as military applications.. the tail could easily be a camera like device, a seperate gun(probobly have to be reinforced for recoil), or even have detatchable segments that fall off and detonate after a few seconds for cover during retreat... maybe a grappling hook .. hah...
rascalraidex, Aug 17 2006
  

       //Just saw this in the Simpsons: where Bart gets to look at his future teenage years. A lady comes out of some kind of cosmetic surgery storefront, looking quite normal until she turns around.//   

       I saw that one too. Funny thing is that I could have sworn that in at least one episode I've seen signs on the shops that look very similar to halfbakery ideas. I saw one which was about getting tails put on.   

       Of course, there are loads of Simpsons episodes, and I've see pretty much all of them, so I don't have any evidence. Therefore I have come to the conclusion that either there is a halfbaker or somebody who frequents the Halfbakery who happens to work on background design for The Simpsons. No, I can't substantiate this claim, but oh well.

       yes of course most chairs, etc. would have to be redesigned a bit and there would be structural challenges if one were to opt for a power or gross-balance type tail (kangaroo or something sufficient to hang from a tree by) and of course having a default posture of standing upright presents challenges in itself, but still......

There's a halfbakery t-shirt (since 2002 or so); see link. Most sizes are gone by now, though. On the back, there are little illustrations of the ten most popular ideas, and this is one of them, in spite of the pretty obvious "using GM as magic" marked-for-deletion tag.

       [Jutta] Are there still pencils? Every now and again I've looked at that page and assumed that you must surely be out of them.

       I still have my pencils, and my tee shirt. And I still love this idea because it used to drive [waugsqueke] crazy. "NOT an invention", he would screech.

       We should not be too hasty to brand stuff as 'Magic'. Todays magic is tomorrow's everyday technology. And as Arthur C Clarke said: "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"

       When Francis Collins was on the Colbert Report, Colbert asked him if our new knowledge of the human genome could outfit him with a pair of lobster claws. Collins did not, in so many words, deny that it could be done.

       Finally, finally baked. I was browsing the web, looking for something completely different, when I came upon a "furry hypnosis" website containing files meant to cause the user to have full-sensory hallucinations of fur, pawpads... and tails.   

       I can speak from personal experience that they work. It is but a pale imitation of true bakage, but it will do until genetic research can provide.

       This idea is much like Jesus Christ.

       //This idea is much like Jesus Christ//
Jewish?
Offspring of blue-collar worker?
Iron Age?

       Misunderstood?
Unappreciated?
Furry Bearded?

       //This idea is much like Jesus Christ//   

       Inexplicably popular?   

       Edit: ... despite being decried as magic and as irrelevant to modern society.

       Re: the drawbacks of tails - I am equipped with a frontal tail of sorts and still manage to wear clothes and sit on chairs. Cats and dogs also seem to be able to manage sitting without difficulty, so I fail to see how it would be a problem unless you put the tail where your anus is. (sorry for the mental imagery).   

       Re: magic - this is clearly a possibility in varied forms. A simple detachable tail that sways gaily back and forth as you walk would be easy. Prosthetic limbs/ears/eyes are all somewhat developed, so a tail would be of similar complexity, although it may have to share motor control with another area, eyebrows would be best I think, both for how your tail moved when you were surprised/cross and the look on your face when your tail holds a mug of coffee.

       I've always wondered why this Idea was never given an MFD due to "Let's All" --it says "All" right there in the title, after all. (Not that I'm going to do that, but am still wondering.)

       I believe it was grandfathered in as predating that rule.
normzone, Mar 26 2010
  

       I'm keeping this one around because it's on the original halfbakery t-shirt. (There is no "grandfathering" and "predating" and all that.)
The idea has been, correctly, marked for deletion many times over.

       Thank you, [jutta].

       and I almost posted the same anno I did last year about this time.

       Sick, Dr.Bob, just plain old sick. Bleh...
blissmiss, Nov 28 2012
  

       So which one will you be buying then, blissy?
DrBob, Nov 30 2012
  

       So, listen to Jay Mohr doing Walken wishing he had a tail. No doubt, he's a baker.

       Ha jutta's link bakes this. Too funny.
