    Was that a cruel jab at my thread title?

    The worst part is I just wandered in here after 2 hours of productivity to check other threads and saw the old chat thread locked at the top.
    I thought fortune had smiled upon me, but alas, she is fickle.

    no, I never saw your [chat] title

    but yes it was a cruel jab

    it's always a cruel jab

    I know that, but he wasn't getting any attention in [Chat] and there seemed a collection of people who had a better chance of knowing over there than here.

    Then again this is coming from the same people who have a thing against black jeans.

    Which just mind boggling.

    Black jeans are usually associated with trenchcoats, ponytails, fedoras, and wispy goatees.

    A. Pony Tails ROCK.
    B. I don't know where you live but here the majority of people don't wear trenchcoats with their black jeans.
    C. Wearing navy with black is AWESOME so F U FASHION THREAD.

    pony tails do not rock

    you can certainly think they do

    but i'm just gonna tell you that most people will disagree with you

    what you are expressing with a pontyail is "i am a huge nerd who doesn't know/care that i look silly," and if you don't care to that extent then you shouldn't be wearing anything nonfunctional at all. everybody cares.

    Most D&D fashion nazis maybe, but I've yet to see a study on worldwide opinions of ponytails so I'm not convinced they are as bad as you say they are.

    Really, long hair is NOT a bad thing at least it's DIFFERENT but I know how you guys hate 'different'.

    ponytails are a universal sign for nerddom, or otherwise poor aesthetics.

    other people who have ponytails include gross bouncers, and no one's going to tell them they're doing it wrong.

    ponytails aren't different. lots of people have ponytails. if you really wanted to make your hair different, you'd do something interesting with it - style it, dye it, cut it all off except for one sideways mohawk that fits into your friend's like a jigsaw puzzle and call it a brohawk - but no; you go with the ponytail, which is a symbol of your cultural aesthetic, as much as silk shirts with dragons on them or trenchcoats or ill-fitting metal band tshirts.

    there is nothing essentially wrong with long hair or ponytails on men; but fashion and appearance is all contextual, and in this context they all say the same thing: i'm a big geek who isn't self aware.

    You are a horrible person and your ideas are horrible as well.

    Mike, your answer had better be three.

    So related to the trench discussion. I've been pleasantly surprised how few people in my philosophy class wear them, just the two out of the twenty or so of us. With video game and 'comedy' shirts of course. The rest rock the normal/intellectual look.

    i don't necessarily even like the fact that it's true; this is my perception of the situation, and my explanation for my own reaction when i see a dude with a ponytail.

    i speak as someone who dressed like a huge nerd for a long time, and was not self aware about my appearance in a way that was actually cogent with how others perceived me.

    Yeah. Saying "ponytails make you look like a nerd" isn't a law of fashion wisdom woven into the fabric of the universe; it just happens to be the way things are in this time and this place. Clothes send signals. It boggles me how many people refuse to believe that, or idealistically think that that's not fair so they're just going to ignore it.

    Oh I totally understand that I will be judged by my choice of dress. I WANT them to think I'm an antisocial geek because, well, I am.
    Like I said, all that matters to me is my resume. I will dress nice for an interview. I will dress nice for an important event, otherwise, jean shorts, gamer t's, and crocs are fine with me. I don't even own a suit.

    well that's just it

    ponytails in some cultures are very different, much like long hair on dudes

    in our culture, long hair and ponytails, especially in conjunction with other items, have a meaning. they produce an impression.

    even if that impression isn't true
    , you are conveying it.

    and if you aren't aware of that impression? then chances are it is kinda true.

    Pixieforce.

    You take any Pixies song, add constant god-awful annoying double kick through out the entire song, and then EQ all the life out of the vocals while adding even more reverb.

    ermm, so I am going on a ski/snowboard trip to montana for spring break with people from the ski team/club, and i don't really know most of them well, but a good friend of mine was going to go on the trip with me and he sucks and snowboarding as bad (actually, probably worse) than me, so we could go ride together and it'd be cool... but he just cancelled because of a family emergency, I don't know exactly what, but that sucks, damnit... :(

    I like the old appearances by bands/musical acts in the 50s and 60s where they would perform a song, but it was deathly obvious that none of the guitars were hooked up to amps and there wasn't a mic anywhere near the drumkit. It's all so amusing.

    If they are congressman it does no good. They'll all tune into their party leader later and say how evil his horrible agenda is. Most of the republican congressman have shown where their loyalty lies and its not with the country.
