Certainly not, that's one thing I love about this thread. You have your idea of who the end user will be (knowing that it will be much broader), but you never guess when and where you'll run into things.

on the tattoo tip:
My friend and one of my mentors in school, Frankie Flood, had a fun experience with one of his designs.
http://www.frankieflood.com/home.html

He did a series of pizza cutters based on choppers/motorcycles as part of his Masters degree in metalsmithing.

Mike Isabella, a Chicago chef (former top Chef contestant) saw them and got this.

Tattoo artist reinterpreted the handle a bit, giving it a more brass knuckle feel.
A few of us saw Mike's tattoo from and interview and were like, wait a minute...
somehow Frankie and Mike got to talking and Mike commissioned Frankie to make the pizza cutter from the tattoo.

Saw a corn dish I designed at a duty free. I mean, usually it's more about saving taxes on alcohol and tobacco, but a corn dish?

Preface: In Wayne County (Detroit) morgue they have a display case with stuff they have found in the river, and stuff they have found in people.
My sister, a lawyer in Detroit, told me that an adult toy I designed was in the case...


I've seen a picture frame I did all over, to my dismay...

And a thing I did at a DARPA contractor got weaponized, which was a little surprising.

I put "Grown Ups 2" on the tv last night and saw a wall sconce I designed 3 years ago lining the hallways of the Sandler Household.

I sense a 1HDC in the making, and then quickly shut down by shocked moderators.
