      as a kid, if you went to any county fair. I understand if giving a current print would be uncomfortable. I can't think of another good way to assign unique identifiers to people without assigning numbers to them.

      Maybe its a generational thing, but I am not fazed by letting Uncle Sam know what the grooves on my fingers look like.
