    Actually, why shave your legs at all?

    Listening to music so loud it can be heard through walls and felt through the floor. That's a fad I would like to die off right now!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Wearing them in Canada on a bike, I can see. Wearing them at Disneyland with shorts, not so much.


    Exactly how can you be hot and cold at the same time? It's just a tacky look, those boots are a crime of fashion. Not to mention the fact that they used sheepskin.

    I think they make people look like hybrid-somethings. Yeti, maybe?

    Or something silimar:
    On the bus/train, listening to your own MP3-player and hearing the music of someone else's player much better. That's what I get for being nice (to those around me and my ears) and keeping the volume low.

    Femme fatale, I am always hearing other peoples MP3 players, and wonder how many of those people will be able to hear much at all in 15 years! There are some people who go to my gym whose players can be heard 15 feet away, over the sound of the elliptical machine--and I can still tell what song it is. Maybe the trend in 2025will be for the latest, trendiest hearing aids. MP3 users, think about what you are doing when you use the volume control!
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    I am totally sick of so many women doing the poorly maintained bleached blonde hair. At least if you're going to bleach, have enough pride in yourself (and money) to keep it looking nice. :nono

    What I hate is when they have their car stereos blasting so loud that the bass literally rattles the windows.
