Tanning Habits for Nuns

  [vote for,

Nuns deserve to get tanned too, if they want. A specially made fabric is black in the visible spectrum but partially transparent in the near UV (the good tanning part, not the bad skin cancer part).

       Actually, a better reason for this Idea is the fact that the skin makes Vitamin D from UV light. So, people who don't get enough sun-exposure can suffer from a deficiency of that vitamin. What tanning is, is the skin's defense against too much UV. I've read that black people living in places like Chicago sometimes suffer from Vitamin D deficiency because their natural protection against equatorial sunlight doesn't let enough through, when they live that far north.

       Clothes: Nun, not Clothes: None. Easy mistake to make!

       Yes, all nuns should go naked when in public. Problem solved.

       Well, I bunned this, but aren't nuns allowed to have bathing suits?

       What's black and white and red all over?

       What's brown and sticky?

       It's not just black folks, [Vern]; even pale-skinned Nordic types like [The Alterother] suffer numerous maladies from short winter days. It's even worse if you live in mountainous regions where the hours of direct sunlight are even fewer.

       What's brown and sticky?   

       A stick.

       A: a sunburnt nun, a newspaper, a penguin in a liquidiser, a communist zebra

       [nmrm] has the correct answer. What's brown and comes backwards out of cows?
pocmloc, Mar 21 2012

       Do Penguins have this problem?   

       If so,someone or something could spray them with a concentrated liquid version of //specially made fabric//

The Isle of Wight ferry.

       The change in livery did spoil that one decades ago though.
pocmloc, Mar 21 2012

       So photographing in the UV spectrum would give you nudes of nuns? I'll bun that.
