WTF is a "Deciple"?

Blatant infringement.

Sooner or later, everyone modernizes. Adapt and overcome, or perish.

There are lots of HA that are in their 20's, 30's and 40's so it's not exactly just a bunch of old guys.

Who would be dumb enough to wear anything that looked like the HA death head in public?

Kids who want the latest trendy prepackaged fashions, of course.

Not sure I'd want to wear that anywhere a Hells Angel might see it and take offense.

Right tool for the right job. A department store gets treated differently than someone hawking merch with their trademarks on the streets.

Good reason for this rule. Someone posing in HAMC gear robs a pusher,one of the real members might get shot.

WTF is a "Deciple"?


It's a unit of measurement named in honor of Alexander Graham Bell, using a logarithmic scale to denote, for instance,  the amplitude of an audio signal.  The Bel is too small to be practical, so it's become standard practice to use a unit of 10 Bels, or the decibel, instead.  You know, it goes to 11.

I'm in DC for a few days. One of those "loud pipes save lives" asshats roared by me this weekend when I was running on the bridge between Arlington Cemetery and the Lincoln Memorial. I'm not sure what it is about the capital that attracts these idiots, but every time I visit they're around. A few years ago I was walking someplace and saw the WBC nutcases protesting. I stopped to listen to them for a laugh and a bunch of those self proclaimed patriotic motorcyclists screamed at me, just for listening.

Most of these guys seem like pseudo-individualistic, group-reliant, overweight morons who use inferior (I understand Japanese bikes are actually faster and more fuel efficient) machinery to compensate. The obvious conclusion is that they're overreacting to substandard penises, but I suppose it could be any number of problems.

The term is "piss off".  There is no need for the dash, unless you are trying to turn it into some sort of a noun.

Now that I think of it, "Piss-Off" could be the name of some sort of cleaning product.

True but it doesn't exactly fit into their image as outlaws existing on the fringes of society.

It's not the same. They have no argument. They will fail. That is all :D

It doesn't matter man. I feel bad for anyone who will wear this. They will get killed.

Anymore they are becoming "legitimate" much like the mafia.  Criminal activity cleverly disguised as an above board business venture.

What kind of superdouche do you have to be to buy and wear knock off hells angels gear?
 
2013-11-04 11:35:53 PM
The face on that knock off looks like Frieza. They are lucky that Akira Toriyama isn't the lawsuit happy type.

Fun fact: 44 years ago, the Rolling Stones hired Hells Angels for security, allegedly in exchange for beer. You don't need to read the Wikipedia link to know how that turned out.

I can't believe there ain't chapters making 'exploratory' runs to Dillard's stores for shelf-clearing. Loss of inventory would slow this down. A tour of the 8732 headquarters parking lot would help, too.

You know what, I'm gonna say that the Hell's Angels essentially being a giant criminal organization, they can go fark themselves if they want the protection of copyright law.

Omahawg: not sure the angels are what they once were. time passes.


They run most of the BC weed trade, worth billions annually, so yeah definitely not what they once were. People with the skills to manage that level of industry are far from the dirty dumb biker stereotype Hunter Thompson helped to promote into the collective consciousness 40 years ago..

They just aren't what they used to be. Back in the 70s they ran a catering service. Roach coaches. They still might. A competitor tried to move in on their territory. The competitor had a few problems with exploding propane tanks on their trucks. Problem solved.

Back in the day they were bad ass. Now they do toy runs but don't underestimate them. Never underestimate the angels. Never.

If I were the big boss of Dillard's, I would PERSONALLY PUNCH the design team for that alone.

Either way, Hell's Angels TOTALLY HAVE A CASE.

They have had lawyers for years, but don't expect a cease and desist letter if you are caught falsely wearing colors on the street.

Curious question, why do they call their leather jacket patches "colors"?
