You know, it would probably be easier to have a sticky with a list of surfaces that CAN be tiled over.

Would hopefully cut down on the "Can I tile over my little brother?" threads.

Sure can. You might notice a little movement in the tiles for the first 3-5 minutes after you lay the mortar, but after that it should set fine.

absolutely not, the floor you set tile on must have minimal deflections (cannot move) or after a week of foot traffic your tile floor will look more like a gravel path.
