    You were lucky.

    My family did not have big toes.

    Having lost my waist to excessive body mass, I find that a belt is useless in an effort to keep my pants over my butt. I use a good pair of suspenders. Have been for several years.

    Though I wouldn't wear them downtown, I have no problem going to my car in the drive wearing only my boxers and a shirt. I don't see much difference between shorts and boxers.

    Though I'm not bothered by the sight of someone's underwear, I don't quite understand the fashion statement they are trying to make.

    Again, an oddity of popular trends.

    Yep.

    I say the same thing about business suits, replacing "underwear" with "necktie".

    Actually, I admit the neckties do actually bother me a little, insofar as they are deliberate requisite badges of socioeconomic status. But, you know, self-inflicted suffering is what it is.

    I will say this, though, they're not pitching to queers; I don't know anyone who thinks it's sexy except as a costume when everyone knows the bitch showing flannel boxers is going to need extended recovery time after daddy is finished with him tonight.

    So unless we're talking about an uncounted mass of homosexual masochists, well, at least it ain't a necktie.

    Just another name for a "leash." People tied to their success and ambition.

    Well, I never claimed saggy pants are the most stupid thing. I always thought neckties are a badge of stupidity.

    They're utilitarian. They keep the foreskin from sliding up over the face.

    On a positive note if some-ones' pants are on the ground, at least they are without a lower reference point. A miner, while under-ground, may still only have his "pants on the ground."

    More like a culture thing. I don't see them much anymore.

    Culture exempts things from being stupid?

    Yeah, you'are right. I'm still trying to learn to appreciate Hip Hop.

    Culture provides a contextual framework, without which pretty much anything is stupid. (This is axiomatic; e.g., if something makes no sense to you, then it is stupid.)

    I can easily doubt your method, but that's a long theoretical question. My best advice is to listen to a lot of foreign music.

    It's all foreign at this point.

    You have this weird presentation about yourself, like the guy at the party who talks to people when he doesn't want to talk to anyone, but just wants to talk. That is to say, as a punch line, I'm sure it works, but it's obviously an inside joke.

    I really don't have much to say. I do apologize that my investment here is limited. It's just a website that I visit from time to time. It's not as though we're changing the world, regardless of our efforts here.
