Springs for hot, wet dipping

spencer_tunick.jpg

I went to Japan last November and planned to hit up the country’s collection of ancient hot spring baths. I brought along this “Hidden Hot Springs” guide, but never used it. Total bummer.

That’s why I’m vowing to hit up a stateside spring sooner than later*. Whether you need a relaxing soak, or you’re looking for a potential “healing“, here’s how to find hot water spots [via Cool Tools]:

- Soak.net
- The NGDC’s Geothermal Map and Text Database

No gadgets allowed! Turn off your cell phone. Don’t pull out a PMP. And definitely don’t take pics of naked people (unless you ask for permission, which actually now that I think of it, is even weirder than just taking a pic in the first place).

*Be sure to go soon. Hot springs have a tendency to dry up.

    I think someone forgot to close their tags.

    I have to say that it isn’t like you can actually *see* anything in this tiny picture. I think to be NSFW you have to be able to see the naughty bits…otherwise this could just as well be a picture of a slice of agate or jasper.

    I’n Canadian by way of the Netherlands, so people being bothered by nudity always bewildered me… anyway, this picture *does* creep me out, for the way everyone is packed in, and the fact they all seem to be unconscious. Guess I’ve seen too many pictures of mass graves.

    Is everyone at happy hour? close the tagz!

    Fixed. All this heat melted my brain.

    Way to go all NSFW up in this bitch!

    please tell me that the picture here isn’t actually a bunch of real, nude people. NSFW on the front page == bad boingboing.

    Johnny, I guess I could see that.

    Secret Life … I think you’re right; my wife saw it and it took her a few seconds of looking at it to say “Is that naked people?”

    What a beautiful picture!

    I’m not usually one to complain about stuff, but such a blatantly NSFW picture on the front page is a little much. Would I be out of line in asking that you change that to a link and put a different picture up?

    insertfingerhere, you’re not the only one.

    Why are you surfing Boing Boing during work hours anyway? Busted is busted.

    (Thank His Mighty Noodles that I work from home)

    “I think to be NSFW you have to be able to see the naughty bits”

    it’s not really up to any of our discretion, now is it? it’s the tight wad higher up who decides.

  17. dculberson says:

    At what work place is it okay to browse Boing Boing but not okay to see an artful nude?

    I mean, I get the “OMG Naked!” reaction, but aren’t you just as likely to get in trouble for misuse of company time/resources/equipment without the OMG Naked?

  18. InsertFingerHere says:

    First glance, I got a bit of a chill with this picture. I’m editing a Holocaust doc, my mind isn’t in a good place right now.

  19. johnny_action says:

    A picture with nakedness on the front-page?

    Really? *head tilt* really?

    This is SO very not cool.

    dculberson -> Many workplaces like mine don’t mind if you use the net for personal use on a break as long as you, *gasp* “Don’t look at anything offensive” Personally I’m fine as heck with this picture if this was purextc .com or Fore to the Chan. Both sites that I *do not* look at while at work.

    So, the type of people to turn other people in at work generally tend to also fall into the subset of people that get upset by things like nakyness.

    All of this boils down to if I see something like this on the *Boing* sites again I will have to limit my *boing* perusal to non-business hours and reduce my overall visits and overall likelyhood to visit BoingBoing’s sponsors.

    Even Brownlee’s Ectomo is more worksafe with little octobee’s put over the naughty bits most of the time.

    One more reason I’m glad I work at a porn company – NSFW means nothing to me :)
