  • Vanity Fair Writer Obsessed With Trump's Pant Legs

    Remember about a decade ago when New York Times "conservative" David Brooks stared with awe and admiration at the crease in Barack Obama's pants leg and took that as a sign that he would be a very good president? Well, in a latter day update of that, Vanity Fair writer Kenzie Bryant is currently gazing with complete fascination at President Donald Trump's pant legs and is obsessing over their size. There is neither awe nor admiration in Bryant's tone but there is an unhealthy overdose of very weird obsession as she wonders What Is Going on with Trump’s Pant Legs?...

    JUST A THOUGHT. PEOPLE WHO PLAY A GAME ARE MORE ETHICAL THAN GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. FOR INSTANCE, A GOLFER MAY TAP A PUTT AND MOVE THE BALL AN INCH. NO ONE NOTICED, NOT AN OFFICAL, NOT A FAN, NOT A FELLOW PLAYER. YET THE PLAYER STANDS UP AND ANNOUNCES THAT HE MADE A STROKE. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO PLAY BY THE RULES THEN WORRY ABOUT WHO WILL WIN. THE PLAYER HAS ALREADY WON BECAUSE HE WAS HONEST. THE ANSWER IS NOT TO HAVE MORE JUDGES OR MORE CAMERAS ON THE BALL. THE ANSWER IS TO HAVE MORE PLAYERS WITH...
  • Fresno Nightcrawlers Are Terrorizing The Dark, And They’re Spreading Far From California

    Fresno, California, might not always be the most exciting place in the world, but they have one claim to fame that's out of this world. The Fresno Nightcrawler sightings began back in the 1990s, and have only occurred a few times since then. These strange beings are cryptids that look like pants, but are only a few feet high and just wandering through the street. There are only a few eyewitnesses in Fresno, but they do pop up on surveillance cameras, startling whoever has the misfortune to check the tapes the next day. Much video footage of cryptids is easily debunked by video analysis, but the...

    FULL TITLE: Paid parental leave, pantsuits for women, colored shirts for men — those changes are coming for Mormon church employees Like their peers, many contemporary Mormon women work side by side with men in boardrooms and courtrooms, surgical theaters and sports franchises, college labs and city halls. Such women are smart and sophisticated in their manner and their dress, overseeing multimillion-dollar projects and donning Hillary-esque power suits. And they certainly don't see having a baby as the end of their careers. Now the LDS Church is acknowledging that new reality among its Mormon employees by changing what some see...
  • Jedediah Bila Tells All About Her Days As Fox News: "I Wasn't Given a Pants Option" (oh noes!)

    Mediaite ^ | | 2:06 pm, April 4th, 2017 | by Lindsey Ellefson
    A longstanding rumor in media has been that on Fox News, the women aren’t allowed to wear pants. It might interfere with the infamous “leg cam,” right? Back in July, three Fox anchors told Mediaite that there was no rule against wearing pants and no leg cam, as other reporters had claimed to have found. Today on The View, Jedediah Bila told a very different story. “We get wardrobes, but it’s different than here. We used to go into a room and there were a bunch of dresses you could choose from. I was told at one point I wasn’t...
  • BUSH: ‘I Could Drop My Pants (Moon the whole crowd) Press Guys Would Never Notice’ (True, Feb 6)

    Sitting on his campaign bus - laptop, turkey jerky, and coffee all nearby -Jeb Bush was befuddled over his campaign's failure to capture more attention from the news media. "I could drop my pants," he said in an interview. "Moon the whole crowd. Everybody would be aghast, except the press guys would never notice." Bush is entering the final days of his last stand, and hints of exasperation are leaking through his cheerful, stoic demeanor. Without a major comeback in New Hampshire on Tuesday, or, absent that, a Bush miracle in South Carolina later this month, he will face increasing...

    New York Times ^ | November 17, 2014 | by David Brooks
    They say failure can be a good teacher, but, so far, the Obama administration is opting out of the course. The post-midterm period has been one of the most bizarre of the Obama presidency. I’m not sure why the Obama administration has been behaving so strangely since the midterms. Maybe various people in the White House are angry in defeat and want to show that they can be as obstructionist as anyone. Maybe, in moments of stress, they are only really sensitive to criticism from the left flank. Maybe it’s Gruberism: the belief that everybody else is slightly dumber and...

    Bruce BowerMay 31, 2014, 7:14 AM The oldest known trousers, including this roughly 3,000-year-old pair with woven leg decorations, belonged to nomadic horsemen in Central Asia. Two men whose remains were recently excavated from tombs in western China put their pants on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us. But these nomadic herders did so between 3,300 and 3,000 years ago, making their trousers the oldest known examples of this innovative apparel, a new study finds. With straight-fitting legs and a wide crotch, the ancient wool trousers resemble modern riding pants, says a team led by...

    FULL TITLE: Don't get caught with your pants down: Tennessee city creates ordinance that makes wearing saggy pants illegal Standards - and pants - have been slipping in the Tennessee city of Pikeville, where the mayor has decided things have gotten as low as they can go. Mayor Phil Cagle is the author of an ordinance that will soon see anyone wearing their pants 'more than three inches below the top of the hips' fined for public indecency. Pikeville is just the latest place in the U.S. to take issue with where young men position their trousers. Scroll down for...

    Japanese Rule of 7 ^ | 24APR2014 | Ken Seeroi
    “Ken? Ken! Wake the hell up! Meet me at the station.” I sat up in bed, and realized it was not my bed. Words like this are why Ken Seeroi does not answer his iPhone after 11 p.m. The dreaded Yoko was on the line, and I was in her bed. Well, at least she had a bed, and not a horrible futon like I do. Either way, I really gotta remember to turn off that ringer. “Ah baby, I’m kind of asleep,” I mumbled, “and it’s pouring down rain.” “I forgot my umbrella,” she said. “Bring me one. “Yeah,...

    School officials in Calvert County, Maryland have denied a request to expunge the suspension of the kindergartener who brought a plastic cap gun on a school bus last month and then wet his pants during a subsequent interrogation. The refusal came in the form of a letter dated Friday, reports The Washington Post. The letter stated that the five-year-old “did bring a cap gun in his book bag.” It also charged that some other children were frightened and told school officials that they couldn’t discern if the orange-tipped cowboy-style gun was real or fake. The unidentified kindergartener had brought the...

    MARSEILLE, France, - Bus drivers in a French city said they will go on strike because, among other grievances, the uniform pants they are required to wear are too tight. The drivers, who work for the public transport authority in Marseille, said Friday the company's 1,600 employees will strike for 24-hours June 3 because they don't approve of "the quality, the color or the fit" of their new uniform pants, The Local.fr reported Friday. "I won't be wearing them," a Marseille bus driver told the La Provence newspaper. "You'd think we work for [car repair company] Speedy! The shirts are...

    Most LDS women wear their “Sunday Best” to Church, but one group is trying to encourage sisters around the world to wear pants on Sunday, December 16. The group is called All Enlisted. Their Facebook Page already has more than 600 followers and is gaining national attention. All Enlisted was started by a local LDS woman. Members of the group said this new movement is all about equality and not necessarily about wearing pants to church.

    COCOA, Fla.- A Florida city council said an ordinance that could result in saggy pants wearers being fined will not take effect until next year so the community can be informed. The Cocoa City Council voted 3-1 Tuesday in favor of the ordinance, which would impose $25 fines on wearers of saggy pants who previously received verbal warnings, Florida Today reported Wednesday. Councilman Clarence Whipple, the sole opposing vote on the ordinance, said he sought to postpone voting on the ordinance after residents raised concerns about profiling and selective enforcement. His motion was not seconded. "We need to make sure...

    In the classic 1968 film "Once Upon a Time in the West," a villainous Henry Fonda shoots one of his lackeys, in part for the sin of wearing both a belt and suspenders. How do you trust a man, muses Fonda, who "can't even trust his own pants?" Mitt Romney is slipping in the polls because, when it comes to his own policies, he is once again wearing a belt, suspenders, and even some elasticized waistbands. The bold Romney who picked Paul Ryan as a catalyst to run on ideas has been ousted by the return of the careful Romney...

    THIBODAUX – Maybe it was the weight of things in his pants that caused them to sag enough to get a policeman’s attention. A 16-year-old was walking in the middle of the road with his pants drooping below his underwear when an officer approached him. Police said the officer several times told the teen to take his hands out of his sagging pants and hold his hands up. He refused, so the officer did a pat down, allegedly finding a handgun and five bags of marijuana. That’s when the boy tried to run but pants falling down his legs made...
