trends that need to die. - Page 9

post #201 of 387
ok, this isn't a style, but I am so sick of seeing guys around campus who have huge man boobs and they wear shirts that are too small for them and to add to that they have a bookbag that pulls their shirt back so you can see every sick detail. it also makes me puke whenever girls wear tight shirts with no bra as well. there is a girl in my summer school class who is like a double D and wears thin tank tops with no bra. so trashy IMO.

the guys with huge man boobs statement just me reminded me of a story....

two friends and myself were hanging out in this cafe lounge type place in brooklyn where in walks a guy, with what looked like C cups wearing this thight shirt that said, "it's not easy being a sex icon." i coudnt have laughed harder....i mean....he thought he looked good!

I despise seeing guys wearing "wife beaters" (i.e. undershirts) in public. They are undershirts, meaning that they are meant to be worn UNDER something, not out in public.
Also, those huge, huge, huge hoop earrings. The ones that are the size of bracelets. Please, no.

I also agree with you jetta_07, I hate seeing girls in those tiny tanks and no bras...

Hey, for those of us too cheap to spend $25 on a tank top with trendy writing on it, those wifebeaters are some really nice 100 degree plus weather gear. I wear them all the time. Dont be hatin!

blm14, not your ordinary run-of-the mill tank top or sleeveless shirt. I am referring to those really, really paper thin, white ribbed ones with the HUGE arm holes. The ones that you can get packaged at WalMart 3/$6.00 or something like that. The really skeevy, trashy ones. I don't care how hot it is, just please no.

Thats the one! When I'm biking 40 miles in a day, and its 100 degrees outside, if it were up to me I would wear absolutely nothing but apparently society has this whole "thing" against public nudity, so I'm gonna have to go with the smallest and lightest clothing available and thats it.

As far as I know, that IS the run-of-the-mill tank top. I'm talking about these bad boys:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...2954 952&rd=1

I'm telling you, when it gets hot, you really cant beat those things.

Ok, for biking, yes I can see that. However, I don think it's appropriate to wear them to a restaurant for dinner or anything like that. That seems to happen a lot here in the good 'ole south.

Oh yeah, whenever I go around in the city wearing just an undershirt, I always have a regular T or a short sleeve button down in my bag so in case I have to like go indoors I look somewhat respectable. Also, my undershirts invariably get really dirty and sweaty so I always have a change anyways

i don't know if anyone has mentioned this or not.. but i remembered how much i hated it when i saw this girl today wearing sweatpants that said 'PINK' in big block letters on her ass! does she actually think she looks cute? fun? hip? sexy? i sure hope not. more than anything else i would just like to get inside the mind of these people and take notice what they are thinking as they are slipping these awful things on.

haha what ?
post #212 of 387
I don't see anyhing wrong with the ribbed tanks that blm posted links too as long as they aren't worn somewhere like a nice restaurant. I understand how sometimes it just way too hot/humid to wear a t-shirt everywhere. The tanks i hate are the ones the cotton ones with arm holes that go down several inches. I live in hick filled kansas and i see guys at restaurants wear those and you can see all of their fat (most of them i see would be classified as being obese.) I just think its really disgusting and they shouldn't even make those esp. in the huge sizes. (i am not making fun of overweight people, nor am i a 'skinnny size 1 bitch' myself (as was said in another post about the girls on here) but i don't need to see whats underneath your shirt when im trying to eat.

Hahah you should visit a nudist colony But seriously, the arm holes are pretty uniform in size, I think the problem with them is that they stretch like nobody's business once they get too old.

I barely even wear a shirt during the summer....I work outside mostly and always have my shirt off with shorts and some sneaks I work in....but I carry shirts with me for when I eat lunch or something.....

Actually the only time I get to wear my nice stuff is pretty much weekends and most of the time me and my bud Rob are off on the boat all weekend til dark.....then we cookout and sit around and drink beer talkin' smack all nite....but I've always got some Diesels and a nice shirt just in case we all head out...

trends that need to die.

three words "get R done"

also i wouldnt mind seeing "im rick james biatch" go the way of the dinosaur

and most of all, the amount of attention that the general public gives celebrities.

it drives me crazy when talking with friends my age (20 ) about something like; declining marine ecosystems, sociological consequences of economic devolopment (or lack thereof), or about policitacl reformation. and someone interrupts me mid conversation to talk about how "jacko narrowly escaped getting his azzhole being turned into mashed potatoes"

the more i travel around the world, the more of a foreigner i feel like in my own country

you would be suprised (or perhaps not) by how many people who actually say that actually know who rick james is.

post #220 of 387
yea i heard he was in rehab or something. if anyone, he's responsible for corrupting youth with his dumb jokes and stupid skits. not things like violent movies or heavy metal.
post #221 of 387
i heard a good joke a while back about him going back to africa. but i know how a joke is funniest the first time, and less funny every time after. thats why i think chapelle threw in the towel. there's only so many times you can run around with fake crack on your nose until it stops being funny.

if anything, kids are a product of thier enviroment. all those ghetto booty girls and those gangster boys got where they are by the society they were immersed in.

i feel that the majority of the people leave thier brains off, and sorta go on autopilot following the flock. instead of using the brain that they were given.

trust me, even violent movies, and heavy metal have produced thier fair share of societal problems

Like what?
post #224 of 387
well, firstly there are a couple dumbasses that i know that like playing video games with guns. who happened to buy an ak-47 for fun. and started shooting the neighbors chickens. they also happened to like heavy metal

also a friend of mine who is a guitarist who decided that he liked drugs alot, and went into a downward spiral until he hit bottom.....

trust me...... they do... maybe not you...

for me i live by one ideal, which is BE RESPONSIBLE. if there is just one thing that i wished that all children were taught. that would be it.

I feel like there is a disconnect in your argument there between necessary and sufficient causes of those negative behaviors. In other words, playing violent video games is a sufficient cause of behavior like shooting neighbors chickens etc but not necessary. There are plenty of people who engage in such behaviors and never touch a video game, let alone a violent one. There are also (obviously) TONS of people who play violent video games and never do anything violent in their own lives.

I read an interesting article a while back that argued that people who vent their anger and such through the playing of violent video games are actually LESS likely to vent such emotions in real life. It's pretty easy to square this with the fact that most violent crime has dropped quite noticibly in most of the US over the past 10 years, the exact period during which the number and violence of video games has been on a massive increase.

Its kind of like the whole marjuana-use-leads-to-cocaine-use gateway theory. That concept derives from a study whereby habitual cocaine users were asked if they had tried marijuana prior to cocaine. The number of users who reported using marijuana first was divided by the number who said they'd tried cocaine first, eg:

x = (# coke users who tried MJ first) / (# coke users who tried coke first)

Now, since MJ is WAY more heavily used than coke, and people are more likely to try it before cocaine obviously the number was very large (anything with a small denominator! ). This was used to say "Use of marijuana is likely to lead to cocaine use" when in fact what the numbers REALLY say is that "Cocaine users are more likely to have already tried marijuana" which is completely different.

Similiarly with video games. Plenty of people play violent games and never do anything violent. A small number of people play violent video games and do something violent. Another large number of people do violent stuff and never play video games. I dont see there being a causal relationship there.

Whew sorry for the long post!
