The Social Reality Challenge

You’ve had a long day at work.  You get home, turn on the computer and escape into the lives of others.  

How was their day?  Did they get the promotion at work?  Did their kid finally go #2 all on his own?  Let’s see those vacation pics!  

You may even share something about yourself.  

Here’s what’s for dinner.  Look what my dog did today when I was gone!  Boy, I can’t wait til Friday, we’re gonna get wasted!!!

 It’s all fine to share our lives and see what that person from middle school is up to (granted they live 3 miles away from you and you have not seen them in 15 years.)  My question is, how come we don’t share anything that’s real?

Student gets arrested for science experiement

 

Last may a student at Bartow High School in Florida made a mistake.  She was making a volcano for her science class.  Kids being kids, she was pressured into showing others on the playground how it works.  The method for this experiment was to mix toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum  foil together for the reaction.  This was a suggestion from a friend.  Now, true this could create the volcano effect she was looking for however what she didn’t know at the time is it also a bomb recipe.  Called The Works Bomb” taking these items together in a closed bottle can cause an explosion.   Read the rest of this entry »

Saggy pants: Style choice or public nuisance?

The saggy pant debate:

Where should I even start with this one?  I guess I should start with where it pissed me off enough to think about posting about it.

It was a three-day weekend, time to go to the store and pick up a few beers.  I have found a good deal at the local store for some tall boys (24oz cans).  I grab the 15 cans in a box and head to the counter.  This counter is set up for fast business.  Large area to set your beverages and two cash registers ready to take your money.  I arrive to find a couple in front of me.  They guy leaning over the counter with his bright yellow shorts (shawts?) hangin’ out his pants.  He looks back at me (holding the case of beer I now more than ready to enjoy) and asks “y’all look like yo ready for the party.”   YES!  That’s exactly what I’m ready for.  However, before I can do that I have to buy this beer.  It’s kinda heavy and awkward to hold while waiting in line.  There’s a nice big area for me to set this, right where you are leaning and displaying your ass.  I just nod in agreement with his banter and wait for him to leave.

I’m not sure what ticked me off the most.  His disrespect towards me not to offer his “leaning space” to set down my product or the bright yellow shorts hanging out his pants.  “You disrespectful pant sagging punk!” I wanted to say, however I had not yet been drinking so common sense took over.

This style has been around for years and there are multiple possible reasons people started “sagging”.  I won’t get into it because, well I don’t care!  Just stop it!!  Maybe it’s just me getting older however I’m not interested in seeing your ass! (Then again, I’ve never been interested.)  Ok, I’m sexist a bit in this one.  I’ve seen some girls do this with the low riders and pull it off.  Even then, in most public situations…no!   Read the rest of this entry »
