    I have trouble finding clothes that fit well & somehow no belt lasts long. It is astounding that people choose to wear loose pants.

    Someone wearing only underwear in public usually goes to jail or a hospital or at least is escorted home. Yet someone showing their underwear is not. I am baffled by this.

    While I do not want to see these idiots underwear, my main concern is consistency in both the law & what the public will or will not put up with. The only significant difference I can see is that the people wearing only underwear do not have to bother with trying to hold up their pants.

    What the heck is the purpose of wearing pants if they do not cover your frigging ass.

    Can nothing be done?

    I have a belt that's probably more than thirty years old.

    I wonder how many of these kids know the origin of the pants-hanging-down look.

    It stasted with prison garb.

    It did not, however popularly recounted, have anything to do with advertizing for gay sex.

    This is Ball on the ground

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_Ground,_Georgia

    Some records indicate Ball Ground was originally named Battle Ground on early maps. The town is located near fields that the Cherokee people used to play stick ball, a rough game similar to modern lacrosse.

    Aaagh no - looking for a college football or quasi-hiphop football game chant , more of a kick to it than the over-musical number there.

    I know I heard it somewhere - no way my dreams have deteriorated to that extent.

    Found it

    http://www.startribune.com/readers-write-for-tuesday-jan-26-2010/82642817/
    The memory - but not the original source: it's from the fan reaction to the Minnesota Vikings loss to New Orleans in a big game a few years ago.
    Where, and who, is the original?

    Might have been this guy, earliest I could find:

    Kids wearing pants that hang down showing their underwear bothers the 'old guys'. Well there you go - mission accomplished.

    Did you guys forget what it was like when you were young?

    I'm just glad when I was young I only had to wear stupid cloths and have annoyingly long hair. Now a days the uniform of the day includes having some failed artist give you a stupid tattoo and you get to poke chunks of metal into your face and body. Seems like todays youth have a much higher commitment to annoying the old guys....

    No. Clothing is clothing.

    Look at the bright side, if some young punk wants to mess with you, all you have to do is run away, even old farts like us can out run some kid with his pants around his knees!

    Well, in my time we were expected to cop an attitude, and it had to be legit, not just some bullshit. Complaining is rite and right of teen years, as such, but if my parents' cohort is to be believed, the world was evil, and then they came along, and then the world was evil again. For instance, I'm pretty sure the punkish teen boys of my father's pre-hippie era spent their rebellious years complaining about not enough opportunities to work themselves to the bone and suffer for God and American virtue, as if the only reason they had to walk barefoot in the snow to school and back and uphill both ways is because those awful commies, their schools, and the goddamn roads, and if only we hadn't bothered with education maybe someone could have opened a coal mine right here, where there is no coal, so all the kids could get an honest day's work and learn some character when they leave their fingers behind.

    What? No, that's not the Boomer youth? A'ight, then. I wonder what the hell happened to that lot.

    We were not allowed to hop. Would have been faster.
