well, I'm poor and i have holes in my underwear... i probably would buy new underwear if i was rich... nope, probably not. no one can see the holes. not worth the effort. I would only have new underwear if i could tell someone else to buy them for me.

/ that which does not matter does not matter.

Well, now might be a good time for some music and literature. Specifically, Air On A G-String while reading A Brief History Of Time.

My dog, a boxer-doberman mix, seems to enjoy quiet classical music as well. He just lays down silently, as opposed to when I have Metallica or Iron Maiden -- he usually pants when I put that stuff on, but it depends on how loudly I play it.


Bloomers.

Not new. Economists have followed this indicator (among others) for years.

Alan Greenspan followed and mentioned this indicator often when he was fed chairman.

I prefer to track sales of crappy, cheap beers. When Natural Light, Keystone and Milwaukee's Best Ice sales go up, the economy is going in the crapper.

Is that really true? I think that it kind of depends.

It just goes to show, a lot of people have been wiped out by the recession.

I get underwear for Christmas. My roommate hasn't worn underwear for over a decade. Oh how I wish he would.

Or wear a belt, at least one of the two.

Or an indicator of substantial weight gain or weight loss.


/in America, probably weight gain

When I have extra extra money, I upgrade the underwear. I'm particularly fond of some line of boxer briefs that Jockey makes, without that irritating flap in the front that just negates any support you could possibly get from tight fitting underwear. Seriously, who the fark through putting a double hinged hole right where your donk is was a good idea for tight underwear?

Anyhow, they're more like thin spandex shorts than regular underwear, and they keep everything nice and tight during the day, which is how I like it. Nothing worse than getting a ball stuck to your thigh in the middle of a meeting and trying to figure out how to gently unstick it while remaining professional.

/Oh, and fark boxers. My ordinance can't swing freely, they might kill small animals or young children wandering nearby.

pfft what are you talking about I live six miles out of downtown la if I was ever to poor to buy tighty whites I go in the fashion district and by 5 packs for less than $3.00 dollars from a mexican or chinese wholesaler. That or ask in pity at one of the missions.

Figures... Biden's underwear would be the last place I'd go looking for those unreported new jobless claims.

Maybe it's a lagging indicator of less food poisoning.

I am disappointed at the lack of pictures demonstrating how women help out the economy by purchasing and or modelling underwear.
