A ready to hand stylus for the EMO about town

We've all seen PDA's that require a stylus to operate, however have you ever considered what you would do if you happened to be an EMO / Goth and use of a PDA Stylus was verbotten (ie not cool).

My idea is for the putative EMO / Goth to add to his / her extensive black wardrobe / makeup by adding a long acrylic black fingernail. This fingernail would then act as the stylus for using a PDA.

The advantages immediately apparent are a) you would never drop / lose the stylus, b) it would fit in with the general 'Goth' theme and c) . . . sorry I can't think of a c)

Emos http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emo_(slang)
Not sure why [Brett]'s capitalised it but they are fellows that like emotional rock and have bad hair. [theleopard, Sep 26 2007]

       c) it could be used as a claw/ pointy weapon which would further up the goth cred.

       How about a soft tipped nose stud that is worn on the tip of the nose, Rhino-like.

       i was thinkin for sure that it was gonna be a razor blade shaped stylus... maybe a wrist shaped PDA

       I know a girl who does just that. She's not a member of any particular clique, she's just a girl who has long nails and a PDA.   

       Not new to me.

       Baked by myself. I keep my fingernails long for playing guitar and autoharp. I've found the nail on my index finger to be particularly useful for my PDA and the tiny buttons on my cellphone.

       A PDA stylus shaped like a flightless bird?

       //What's an EMO?//   

       EMO is a new, popular type of pop-rock that has turned perfectly normal high-school kids into EMOTIONAL black wearing ###'s. EMO is short for emotional, and its the style of rock. Very sad, simple music that is being gobbled up by "cast away's"   

       The problem is the music (AT FIRST) was supposed to be made, and made for societies rejects. It gained popularity and then grew exponentially at the hand of producers and record companies. Don't listen to it.

       New? My ass. Emo brats have been calling themselves that since the early 1990s.

       Is using a PDA in any way cool for a Goth? Or Emo?

       [Galbinus_Caeli] Your right. It just took the mainstream producers / record companys / MTV / american pop-music machine to get its hands on 'EMO' music and exploit it into retaurdedness (I know, that word is made up)

       // not sure why Brett's capitalised (EMO) //   

       Thanks TheLeopard - I'm just assuming that Emos shout more than Goths.

       Seems like they 're the ones most in need of a hug, a kiss, a simple touch. Maybe a little handholding as well.
