Marital status chip

A chip that tells a person someone elses martial status.

This is pretty straight forward......i don't think i am the only one that has been interested in a girl, only to find out that she is taken. This REALLY pisses me off. SO! basically, a chip placed under the skin on the back of the hand, and everyone is issued with a snanner that will work from long distances, possibly in the form of a wrist watch for discrete use. Basically, the chip will give you, the persons martial status (single, long term relationship, etc), and how long for.

This is one of my more serious ideas. I don't think it will take off due to the lack of people willing to have stuff inbedded in their hand just to help people hit on them. But hey! it might be a laugh ;)

       They have or had these-- a Japanese fad, IIRC.

       Does it really matter how long they have been married?

       I have a special marital status device. It's on my hand though not embeded in it. It's analog, but works with existing equipment. Perhaps if others have something like this you could look for it to try to figure out how they work.

       Part of the whole love game is the theft of those who are "taken." If she's really interested she may not tell you that she's taken. If you already know via this propoed technology of yours, you'll never try.

       I have a black belt in marriage.

       <obligatory>Wouldn't this be a chip that determines your fighting skill?</obligatory>

       If she's married and someone else is paying her bills... sorry what's the problem again?

       There was a bar called "LuLu's" that had a similar idea with Balloons. Everyone who entered was given a different color balloon depending on what they wanted to express from "single" to "Horny" to "Virgin". Now that I am married, it would be nice to see the same clear signals! +++

       Perhaps you could scan their hand from a distance with your eyes.

       [Rods]: Took me a while to get that one--to see that one. Funny.

       I think marriage is a martial art. I have a black belt in origami by the way.

       I'm a lover not a fighter. Oh wait... is it the other way round?

       Howsabout a flavour of potato chips (crisps) that you can buy, so that people see you munching walking down the road, they'll know you're single?

       what like garlic?
po, Aug 08 2003
  

       If you're eating Garlic crisps, I think you're saying you're taken (or not looking to be).
