I am now officially terrified. Even though the sun rarely shines where I`m from, a friend in my high school had aggressive melanoma. It took a hell of fight but he kicked it, thank god. Just goes to show that even though we don`t see the sun, it sure as hell sees us!

Dear 16-year-old me: Yes, alcohol is great; and yes, that tingly sensation you got when you kissed Melissa was arousal, it wasn`t the acid you took.

They should do more shock therapy by showing pics. I noticed most white people who tan often. Usually their skin also begins to look like a well done roast beef in appearance. Then as they regress to fair skin tons of freckles show up.

I have to admit though as a spear diver and surfer boy. I am just as guilty of neglecting my skin. That Hawaiian sun doesn`t feel that hot until you noticed the burn later that night.

Just came inside from a beautiful day and a 6 mile hike, at 7,000 ft elevation. I`m going to die, apparently. But it sure as hell won`t be diabetes or a heart attack.

"Oh good, I`m glad I`m not the only one who got teary... I thought I was gettin` soft. (It didn`t help that I watched this right after the Sudan lost boys vid).

I would be like: Dear 16 year old me, why you such a skank?! Wait until college, when you`ll blend in."

The comment reads like an Oscar-winning movie...I cried, I laughed. :)

The man at 3:05 looks exactly like my husband when he has a goatee. And maybe its because my husband did have skin cancer last year, I really thought it was him for a second there. This hit home, I started crying when I saw that man tear up.

None of those places at the end were in America, but they were speaking American. I feel I have been tricked.
