    Random Thoughts Thread #1

    This thread is for those random thoughts we have all the time.

    When did kids start wearing black socks with sandals and tennis shoes? I see them everywhere.

    Why would anybody wear socks and sandals anyway? I thought that was a nerdy thing?

    It's so you can easily slip into another type of shoe at a moments notice. Say you've just finished your morning run and take off your running shoes, but you have a tennis match on your calendar. You can keep your socks on, slip on your sandals to keep your socks in perfect shape, and saunter on down to the local tavern to get a double Tito's Bloody Mary...because that's the only way that ***** is going to have a chance at beating you at tennis.

    High schoolers are probably wearing socks and sandals because they've just come from open gym and they've been playing so much basketball their feet are totally nasty looking.

    I wear black socks as well, but not with sandals.


    Also, I'm not a huge fan of the medium length black socks people wear with their tennis shoes. Either a no show sock, or none at all.

    yeah, I find it funny that boys wear black socks now with white shoes with their shorts....guess, that is about the only offensive fashion faux paux left to offend previous generations with.

    I wear no shows with my running shoes to work. Every once in awhile I will wear the medium lengths with shoes around the house (usually save those for winter under jeans).

    In high school I wore black medium length Nikes with my white Cael V1's
    Wore white socks with them once, boy did I look stupid.

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread #1

    Another random thought.

    Why do people going Eastbound on 80/35 get antsy back by Merly Hay and camp in the left lane going 60 mph because they know they'll have to exit left in 6 miles???

    This is great. I was wondering the exact same thing a couple weeks back. I was at a fair where there was a large population of high schoolers. Keep in mind I am only 24, not very far removed.

    These kids all had mid shin length black socks with Sperry's on. Now I like Sperrys, but the whole point of them is to wear without socks. I was in disbelief at this and still am. Glad it got brought up.

    Not too mention their hats that they wear backwards and basically falling off their head.

    Kids these days!

    Why do people think the best thing to do on the makeshift on ramps by the I380 construction is to come to a complete stop?

    so at a four-way stop by my work people will come to the intersection at the same time. one going east and one going west. the guy going west will go and then once he's done the guy going east will go. GO AT THE SAME TIME. people have road rage because other drivers suck.

    And than there are the guys who have no concept of waiting their turn. Was a a very busy four-way stop (cars backed up north-south-east-west) last week and nearly got hit by a guy who just stopped and than went with me turning left in front of him. It gets even more dangerous because with some of the motherships people drive can totally block your view when they are passing in front of you.

    About 2 miles outside of Carroll going west on 30 the 2 lane goes to 4 lane. Usually when going from 2 lane to 4 lane traffic thins out. Not here, for some reason those same people that were running 60 now decide this is a good time to slow down to 50. Some of them don't even make a lane choice for a quarter mile and just kinda float down the middle. IT'S MADDENING!! I have more road rage in that 2 mile stretch than anywhere else I drive.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    So in addition to being a cop you're also a drivers Ed instructor? Man, you're busy. When do you have time to buy your black socks and think about how you're going to word your meltdown posts?
