    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?

    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.

    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.

    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

    Around Christmastime, I probably creeped out a neighbor.

    There was a Christmas bow on the floor of our garage, so I decided to put it on a car. There was a lovely Dodge Charger next to me, so they got the bow. The next day, the bow had been cruelly thrown to the ground. So I placed it back on the Dodge Charger. The third day, no bow I wonder about the bow's fate and the neighbor's thoughts about who was creepily putting said bow on their car.
