For those of you that went you know what I am talking about. Its a military style dogtag with the scion logo on it, but we were only given one per owner. Military dog tags are always sets of two. So I decided to have a custom one made to go with it. Well I got it and it looked good until I put it with the other one. Thats when I discovered that it was not made of a acual military dogtag blank. Its too small. So guess I will have to get it made again. Here is a bad photo to show you what I mean. Sorry it sucks but my camera doesn't do good at close up photos.




For those curious the second one says:

Just a quick fun little fact for those of you that don't know - Military dog tags do come in sets of 2 - The dog tag is hung around the neck on a chain of 365 beads. The second tag is actually your toe tag, hence the smaller chain of 52 beads. The reason for the number of beads is of course number of days in a year / number of weeks. If you are captured you can count days by removing a bead.

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

Jeez, talk about morbid.. I guess that's one you'd definitely want to keep around your neck.

eviljack.. does your camera have a micro setting, for closeups at about 4 inches? Probably see a picture of a flower for it on front or in one of the internal (programming) sections.
