    Though given the generalized nature of the quote, I don't see how context adds any useful information.
    It's on a par with making women wear headscarves.

    Re: Unlikely assertions

    The only way I can see it working is if you were to tie one legging round the waist and tie the other loincloth style between the legs front and back. But then to stop it just slipping off you'd have to haul the waistband up over your shoulders and end up with an impromptu mankini.

    Informal social occasions in the the US seem more demanding than I thought...
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    There's always some absolutely tasteless and stupid clothing trend going around, usually with the young adults.

    In the 1970s, it was long hair on guys, hiking boots, and denim overalls. In the 1980s it was bike shorts and mullets, especially with wildly exaggerated primary colors. In the 1990s, it was the "grundge" look with flannel shirts unbuttoned and hanging out, the more unwashed the better. Earlier this century came the "sagging and bagging" look of oversized clothing and pants down under the bottom with underwear showing. Now it's "leggings" and skin-tight jeans...on men or women. I just quietly laugh, sigh, and get over it because...who am I to judge?

    The thought of my first winklepickers still embarrasses me.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
