They still do wear baggy jeans hanging off their butts. Whenever I go to the mall I see kids with a phone in one hand and holding up their jeans with the other. The fad is like 20 years old and it never stopped.

As for TFA, why to black people get tattoos? You can't make anything out of them. Except if it's in cursive and on their neck, then it's their baby daddy's baby. If there are numbers after it, that's when the kid died.

Kids these days...
 
2011-09-01 12:08:39 PM  
My 13-year-old nephew wears "skinnies", which in my day we called tight jeans. Baggy jeans seem to be out of style here. The style now seems to be skinny jeans...and has been for a few years. Don't know how he can stand to wear them. They must be squashing his balls.

Mugato: The fad is like 20 years old and it never stopped.


I was talking with a friend of mine about this the other day. There hasn't really been a major change in the way urban/suburban young people dress since about the mid-90s. So, yeah, almost 20 years.

It's not just pre-18 year olds, either. I live in the same college town where I went to school in the early-to-mid 90s, and I look at pictures from back then and there's been no real significant difference in the way college kids dressed then compared with how they dress now. Now think about what kids looked like in the mid-90s and compare them to how they looked in the mid-70s. They aren't even on the same planet.

I blame the internet and vaccinations. And high-fructose corn syrup.

Man that is hardcore. But I'm evil for laughing so hard at it.

I also live in a college town, and I can see the shift, but only amongst the cliques. Skaters have gone from super baggy clothes to wearing skinny jeans and either late 70's hair or emo hair (depending on if they're white or hispanic). The goths have disappeared almost completely as have most of the "attractive and successful Caucasian-Americans". Hipster fashion has taken their place amongst the white kids, especially those majoring in art. Dudes sporting beards, fedoras, wearing striped pants with checkered shoes. Women dressing like Kreayshawn. Sitting around talking about irony.

Meanwhile asian kids and black kids all seem to be the same as they've been for the last 10 or 15 years. Same with the jocks. There was a brief period there where the jocks all got into trucker hats, but that quickly passed.

That's because jeans, sneakers, a tshirt and a hoodie is the pinnacle of human clothing.

Let's be honest, if he's wearing skinny jeans, he probably doesn't have balls.

If someone caught a glimpse of your underwear when I was in school you'd have to dropout due to embarrassment, your only friend would be that girl that was stigmatized for life when they caught eating a booger in second grade.

================================================================

They were TRYING to come out when I was in college (I graduated in 2010)... the guys that wore them did manage to look half decent.

They were really skinny kids with chicken legs like me. Just in my case, I don't like to flaunt my chicken legs...

Seriously. And Lil' Wayne has got to be the most butt ugly motherf*cker alive, too. I have also heard better rap from Devastatin' Dave. Kids must be f*cktarded.

I'm light enough where one would show clearly on me. Still haven't decided if I really need anything permanently drawn on me, though.

It's funny. I'm nearing 30 now and any inkling I have had of my 20's to get a tattoo has completely faded. I see all my friends with their tattoos of flash in the pan bands or the same tribal/barb wire crap that everyone else has and it makes me chuckle. Tattoos are permanent. Janes Addiction obviously wasn't.

And ladies, please stop with the giant wings on your backs. It the second worst thing you can get besides a face tattoo.

I saw a kid the other day walking into the mall with his mom and his hair was swooped over his face covering his eyes. I had to pretty much hold it out of the way to see. When need another Vietnam.

As recorded history piles up on the internet, our culture will become more and more stagnant, as old trends never go away. American culture will become an oldie's station.

CSB time. One night while driving home on the expressway, a car tore past me doing at least 100. The driver lost control and did a 360 spin off the road. It was a bunch of punk teens in an obviously stolen car. They all fled and try to make their escape by running across the expressway. Thee of them made it. The fourth got tripped up by his droopy jeans.

Imagine in your head a full tube of toothpaste. Loosen the ca and lay the tube horizontally on the table in front of you. Do a karate chop right in the middle of it. Yeah, that's what it looked like.

/prolly not so much of a CS for that B

2011-09-01 04:48:17 PM  
I have noticed that we've gone from fauxhawks to actual mohawks, albeit wider than the punker type and maybe with the head not completely shaved down to the skin.


Also, I don't wan't to see any ahole's underwear; it's a violation of my rights.
 
2011-09-01 04:54:31 PM  
Skinny jeans and tights were worn by your generation when you were younger!

You can't lie to me. I've seen pictures of the old hair bands!

At least kids today are only dabbling in neon. Ya'll mother farkers too that WAY too far.

Ok, that's gross.

But I stopped wearing flip-flips/sandals for a similar reason. If you need to GTFO or defend yourself....baggy jeans and sandals ain't gonna save your life.

our current military involvements are nothing remotely close to vietnam. the only things in common are the waste of time/money for misguided reasons.
when we start drafting high school kids for a proxy war and suffer 200k+ casualties, then we're in the same ballpark.

oh yeah, don't forget that we need to start shooting (at) protesters back home, too.

A garter belt for baggy jeans... That's fantastic. This is why I'll die a poor man; If I had this idea, I would have snerked to myself, waited for the opportunity to use it in a throwaway joke, and then gone to bed not a penny richer. Another guy not only makes money on it, he has the option of laughing his ass off all the way to the bank if he feels the need to.
