"From mermaids to the ancient Babylonian scorpion people, stories of humans with tails abound in mythologies from around the world. Often, these figures possess some sort of magic power or wisdom beyond mortal understanding.

But what would it be like if humans actually had tails? How would the extra appendage change our daily lives? And what would they look like?…"

Chairs would be designed a little differently.
If they were big and bushy, we would be better at walking tight ropes.

My imagination is running amok, thinking of all the things I could do with a prehensile tail!

I would have enough hands to assemble multi-part 28mm figures with separate arms and weapons.

If you used a prehensile tail to help assist with figure assembly, that would open whole new vistas of accidentally gluing appendages together, esp. if fur were involved.

Hmmm, I seem to recall getting some tail but I can't remember exactly when.

If I had a tail I would have one more way to annoy my wife. :)
