Things that were/are considered cool...that I just don't get.
The wearing of ones baseball cap backwards. Did some baseball player back in the day attempt to get dressed in the dark and accidentally put his cap on backwards, thus starting this trend. A few fans in attendance saw this and thought it was the coolest thing since Fonzy and the rest is history. I know not everybody who wears their cap backwards thinks they're cool, but unfortunately there are some people who do and those are the people I don't get. Is it like turning into a superhero, forward cap normal mild mannered dude, turn it backwards and now you're a super cool dude?
Wearing sunglasses indoors. These geniuses were trying so hard to be cool that they even came up with their own name for this trend...hata blockas. The only reason people were hating is because you looked like an idiot wearing your sunglasses indoors. Back in the 80's it was cool to wear them at night, now indoors, what's next...while you're sleeping. My hata blocka is a wiffleball bat...everytime a hata comes up to me I beat them silly with it.
The pants sag. I heard this style originated in prison, as a way for homosexuals to show they were available...I'm not sure if that's true or not but that's what I heard. I'm wondering who actually saw this and though to themselves that it would be a cool style to mimic. Honestly, it looks like a heck of a lot more work trying to keep your pants up then I'm willing to invest, why not just go with a belt...or even a piece of rope. I can understand someone saying they don't like wearing ties because they are too constricting, but a belt...c'mon man. I'm waiting for the day when I see someone sporting the sag with skid marks on their drawers...I know it's coming, it's just a matter of time.
Hydraulics on cars. I don't see how this is comfortable in the slightest, just looking at a car bouncing up and down as a result of this, hurts my back and makes me want to cry.
Speaking of cars, another thing I don't understand, is having the music so loud in the car that the bass vibrates everything within a mile radius of the car. Sure the chicks may love it (huh huh) but it makes my ears hurt.
I don't know, maybe it's because I'm so white I'm almost transparent, maybe it's even because I walk like my underwear is too tight or maybe it's even because I don't have any rhythm whatsoever, but whatever the reason is...I just don't get it.
