    I don't care for Gabe saying he's not wearing pants while literally demonstrating that he's wearing pants.
    Sweatpants are pants, right?

    In British slang, pants = underwear and fanny = vulva. 'I do not wear pants, so I fanny pack it' is a real showstopper.

    I think the Universal Internet Hivemind has decided long ago that neither sweatpants not cargo pants (the polar extremes of the pant spectrum, as we all know) qualify as Pants™.

    What's funny is that the modern word "pants" (US usage) came from a 16c Italian comedy character named Pantaloon (Pantalone in Italian). He was known for wearing really tight long trousers instead of the knee-breeches that were more fashionable at the time.


    Thus the most historically authentic pants are yoga pants.

    Digimon is also old. It was from around the same virtual pet fad time. It was different in that it melded Tamagotchi and Pokemon. The pets could have fights. Which is totally on-brand for Gabe.

    Considering the fanny pack and the sweatpants, I think they got on a roll of just how many old things they could tie together.

    Aki Maita & co. at Bandai created Tamagotchi in 1996 and Digimon in 1997.

    Kinda, has a little bit of a different way of growing the vpet. Digimon requires you to take steps and keeps track of them so they lean more towards a pedometer with gameplay stuff attached to them, where as a tamagotchi doesn't. Otherwise they're kind of the same.

    The Vita bracelet is great, but also kind of fails at being amazing. If it was more like a dumb smart watch or even just a smart watch app it'd probably be amazing. Right now it's just kind of an oversized digivice that's wrapped around your arm.
