The mysteries of life: why skin is called the horny layer

Or rather, the mystery (at least until I think of more) of life.

Men who molest women publicly are (lecherous and disgusting aside, that we all know) thick-skinned. What then gives them the kick of touching women since they can’t really feel whatever they are touching too well due to their thick horny epidermal layers?

I think I should compile more mysteries of life and publish them into a book as my backup retirement plan. Oh wait, that was like, two mysteries in one. Whoppie! I can go publish my book on The Mysteries of Life NOW!

Posted in memory of bored buddy. May you rest in peace and not boredom.

according to the Free Dictionary, the horny layer is the "outermost layer of the epidermis consisting of dead cells that slough off". This means thick skinned people is made up of a lot of dead cells. which would explain a lot.
