I just hate people like that. And people who pay £15 for a t-shirt, £20 for a hoodie almost weekly, straighten their hair and buy the necessary accessories (pointless bag, useless bike) to keep up with what Topman is saying we should all wear, and so look just like everyone else. C'mon, where's your individuality, people? You all look like little clones!

There's plenty of individuality going on even in the same brand. I'd give you pictures as examples if I could, but I don't have them. Just accept it, it's a fact.

Really that applies to botd's statement just as much as mine. :P

When you come to find the sharing codes, there will be a field for forum thumbnails. If you want the little trick, then you need to insert '.th.' before the file type extension, like so (look towards the end):

[url=http://img90.imageshack.us/my.php?image=desktop010108lt9.png][img=http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/9412/desktop010108lt9.th.png][/url]

You still place it within the img section of the code.

Does that help you oma?

EDITED: it would have helped if I indicated why I posted this straight after Rick's post, when mine has no obvious relevance.

No, there isn't among the UK teen demographic. I can go into a busy shopping centre, and see nothing but people who look the same as the person standing next to them...

And look at us Americans.

Barely, if any, individuality.

Sized 0 jeans for girls

Oversized jeans for boys.

And the brands of jeans get annoying.

That's another reason why I shop at Forman Mills (besides their prices).

I can find something their that wont make me feel like a clone of everyone else.

Here it's more of a brand thing. You either go for sack of potato fit or skinny fit. But there's plenty of creativity about, you don't see anyone dressed the same way as anyone else around, except maybe for the 'Soulja Boi's. But they look stupid anyways...

Heh. You say oversized pants are "in" for guys? Are you delusional?

:-P I've seen many more boys in tight pants than I care to see in my entire life.

They are, it's just usually the skaters that wear them. With all racist prejudice put aside, I've only seen one black male wearing tight jeans and he was skating.

I also hate how people generalize clothing choices based on their race.

Like, I'm African American, and you don't see me with my pants off of my posterior.

and Dave, scene kids wear them too :lol: .

I now say "Thank you" to my DT teacher all the time and it really does drive him round the bend.
Perhaps I'm missing something, but around my area, teachers are grateful when genuinely thanked. Mayhap it's the manner by which you thank him that's making him want to smash your head against the wall. Or cry.

A long long time ago, in Year 7 assembly (at the time I was in 7 but now I'm in Y8), we had another boring assembly on respect and our Head Of Year was droning on about being polite to your teachers and saying please and thank you.

Since that assembly, we said thank you to lots of teachers, leaving them confuzed. Then we started doing it on our DT teacher, we would just thank him for nothing. We'd say for example, "Thank you for today's lesson sir" or "Thank you for opening the window sir" and you get the picture, we'd be saying thank you for everything. Of course, soon he just hated it and so we keep on doing it, after all, respecting our teachers by saying thank you to them (constantly) is very polite.

This year, I found out I'd have my same DT teacher so I decided to print a piece of paper which had "Thank you, sir!" and using that piece of paper, I made him an origami crane becuase last year, he taught us a bit of origami.

:P

Over in the UK, if you don't either wear track-suits with knives stuffed down the waistband, or whatever $30 t-shirt and $60-70 pair of jeans that the all-pervasive Topman wears, you are in a tiny, tiny minority. Plus, Blooper, I think wearing tight jeans makes skating easier, owing to air resistance, but I just reckon that for every-day wear, they're impossibly tight: I had a pair I couldn't sit down in... Scary thing was, they were actually my size.

Also, what is it with the American brand Abercrombie? Not only is the stuff they sell ridiculously expensive (£80 for a hoodie, anyone?), but it is also ridiculously plain. For the prices, you'd expect something more than a plain piece of fabric with a name on...

@ Vista?: Fun fun fun... If you have a good teacher, you won't want to annoy him/her. The best teachers I ever had were approachable people whom you would not wish to even try to annoy in earnest - out of fun, maybe, but not to genuinely annoy them.

Dang it, I knew this would happen. No, we can't judge people on attributes such as skin color, but you grow up differently when you're a black person in the US than a white person in the US. It's not a bad thing, it's not a good thing, it's not something I despise, but it's true. I've yet to see a black metalhead for example. You become what your friends are.

@BOTD: I hope you're kidding. Skinnies are much more comfy than baggies, at least if you don't wear the down to your ankles (I saw a guy whose pants fell in the middle of the street, good fun). There's much more room to stretch your legs, they're warmer in the winter (same reason as mittens and gloves, and that's a very important factor here in Canada), and, for skaters like me, it's generally much better. If the jeans were your 'usual' size, it might differ depending on brands.

lolol where's my 1000th post? XD
