This headline is erroneous. Fedoras are not fun.

Is it too much to ask that we put Jenny McCarthy in a rocket and launch it...well, anywhere?

Oh HELL no. I brought two pairs of Ray-Bans. The first pair was stolen in a month. The second pair was stolen in a week. I have a pair of cheap sunglasses Ive had since 1997, paid $3 for, still have.

Fark spending $200 for a pair of Ray Bsns. Fark that in the ice hole

my oakleys dont leave my head till i get home. i fear scratching or misplacing them more then someone taking them. wifes were stolen after leaving them in a changing room for about 5 minutes.. human nature sucks..

I got a fedora last week and wore it at the bar last weekend.  I can say, the ladies seemed to love it.

Also Jenny McCarthy can DIAF.

Actually the credit goes to this guy.  But preppie teens in the 80s wore them.  Along with madras shirts, khaki shorts, and yes, sometimes fedoras. Hahahaha, hipsters dress like preppies.

Why the hell are you leaving your nice sunglasses laying around where they're getting stolen?
I've never had a pair of shades stolen, and nice sunglasses are one of those few luxuriesi'm a nerd about.

/my last pair of Raybans was chewed up by my dog when he was a puppy, but they were a few years old anyway.

And THIS is why religion kills. Because as a society we give validity to people who hold irrational beliefs that are not evidence-based and we don't call them out as being batshiat insane.

Therefore we have to concede that the anti-vaxxers also have a position that is valid even though there is no evidence for it because Jesus.

Katie Couric was in the paper just now for highlighting the "HPV Vaccination Controversy" when there is no controversy. But people will hear supposed experts say incorrect things on her show and they'll go away believing that and spreading the misinformation themselves.

Anti-scientific beliefs need to be called out for what they are and dismissed as anything but fantasy, regardless of whether religion is involved.

It was corroborated on Infowars!

You can buy good Ray Bans for 80 bucks.  I haven't had a pair of Way Farers since the 80s, but I bought a pair of Daddy-0s in 2007 and they are still kicking.

Can we bring back keeping a small whiskey bar in every office and drinking straight liquor all day at work?
 
2013-12-06 10:19:35 AM
Back in the 90's when Ray Ban's were still cool, Fox Films was one of my customers... I used to eat in the commissary whenever I visited them. One afternoon, I found myself sitting next to Jenny McCarthy. She may be dumb as a bag of hammers, but goddammit she was unbelievably smoking hot in person. It was all I could do to keep myself from crawling under her table. /CSB

well, that became vomitous in a hurry...

the antivac people might support junky science, but many claims about the harm of vaccination were rooted in a fanatical opinion that was grounded in what people thought was scientific.

Thanks a lot vaxxers, now douchebags think wearing fedoras is cool. The only hats that are acceptable in public are top hats and stovepipe hats, and hats of that ilk. Get it together.

I'm waiting for Spanish Influenza to be all the rage, along boater hats. Bow ties are already cool.

If you are willing to pay $287 US. Seems to me that I paid $70 back in the day. I was the coolest lifeguard at the city pool. The chlorine faded my parachute pants though....

The prevelence of ant-vaccination belief is very surprising to me.  I have some friends that are otherwise smart people, but fall for this non-sense for some reason.  They claim they aren't like THOSE anti-vaxers, but we still should be careful because of some girl in Australia got the Gardisil shot and she got sick and blah blah blah.

I mean sure, there is as much evidence to suggest that Gardisil caused the girl to get sick as the moon entering Taurus, but it just FEELS weird, doesn't it?
 
2013-12-06 11:26:47 AM
Anti-vax idiots can jump in a lake full of polio.

Fedoras are only cool when worn properly, wearing a suit in a black and white movie.

I'm wearing Ray-Bans right now.

/really, I'm blind as a bat, my glasses just happen to be Ray Bans.
//not sure if I had a point here... oh well

Lol, same thing happened to mine, only she wasn't a puppy. She was older and pissed at me. Went into my purse took them out and left the pile of pieces in the middle of my bed. She was right, I apologized and now I own some cheap sunglasses (zztop style)

I lost my $250 Maui Jim sunglasses jaywalking across Queens Blvd. Never again. My current pair of shades is a $30 faux pair of Oakleys (Fakeleys) that I bought in the optical department at WalMart. They work just fine -- UV protection, fit my face, polarized.
