    The second year I marched drum corps I took a Greyhound bus up to New Jersey. Long story short: my bag didn't get there with me, I spent several days rehearsing (and sweating profusely) in whatever clothes I could borrow from friends, and when I finally got my bag everything in it had been stolen except my pajamas, my shoes, and my prescription drugs. I'm pretty sure someone that worked for Greyhound was irritated that the corps staff kept calling them every couple of hours to bitch about it and decided to get back at them somehow.

    Anyway, the corps raised some money for me and I "got to" go to the mall and Wal-Mart to buy some replacement clothes for the summer. I ended up shopping for a couple of hours in someone else's pajama pants.


    A couple of weeks later I got jock itch from all that sweating into the same pair of underwear for five days.

    the best chinese in bad clothes ive ever seen was this one time in japan when i was telling this british guy that its not too hard to spot the more distinguishable koreans or chinese amongst the japanese if you know what to look for

    and i looked around to see if there might be a good example around even though there was hardly anyone around

    but right there, in a quiet backstreet of tokyo, a city where neat clothes and proper daily grooming seem to be the bare minimum dress code for anyone leaving the house, were the two most downtrodden farmer looking chinese people you could imagine

    faces looking unwashed and aged far beyond their years, dirty tattered clothes of the most basic sort, grey trousers brown jacket and a tweed cap that probably cost all up a couple of dollars max sort of clothes
    calloused hands holding cigarettes that were clearly crushed and bent


    basically they were a shit example because it was too obvious

    also its cool that a lot of chinese people would step out in pajamas
    actually a while back a friend whos been living in china for a few years was saying somethin about how one thing he likes in china is that people basically do whatever they want and dont worry about what other people think so much

    im pretty sure pajamas in the street was his main example
    and/or spitting in the street

    Supposedly in North Korea the men just whip it out and piss wherever they please. If you're caught taking a photo of this they'll confiscate your memory card or make you hand over your film. The photographer that wrote about this did manage to snag a pretty clear shot of a Korean man in a business suit peeing into a river (in a public place with dozens of people walking around and paying him no mind) but he said he saw several folks just pissing on the street as well.

    You do see that in Japan sometimes. Usually in more rural areas or elderly guys, but I saw it a few times.

    once in india i saw a kid taking a shit in the street
    but im pretty sure thats because he didnt have a house so where else could he
    except i seem to remember him being on the top of some mound in full view of everything instead of in a ditch behind something

    but i could be remembering that wrong

    i once pissed in an alley in japan but only because i was dying to and only after waiting a few minutes until the surrounding streets looked clear and then i did it in a hidden corner at night

    then heaps came out and it started flowing down towards the street and i think maybe i exited from the other side of the alley

    Once me and my friends were just hanging out in downtown

    everything was closing and no one would let me into the restrooms so I shat in an alley

    it was actually pretty quick, took lke 4 seconds and then we were out of there

    Public peeing. Oh no. You might be seen by someone.

    Talk to me once you've "saved up" like 6 days worth of poo until you decided it literally cannot wait any more, sprint off like a half mile away because you're above the tree line and you have to get out of sight of everyone, find a particularly sharp looking rock to dig out a little hole, poo into the hole, then cover it up, dispose of the rock (?!), and walk back another half mile.

    Backpacking for 2 weeks teaches you to respect outhouses.

    lots of people here wear pajama bottoms just like other people would wear jeans
    most people here are obsessed with lulu lemon pants so pajamas aren't far off and are a better substitute.

    So many people at my university come to lectures in their pjs

    I hate it. Mostly because I try to make an effort with my appearance if I'm in public

    Call it a quirk

    i'd never wear sweatpants out of the house
    ever
    i don't understand how people feel like they are suitably dressed for being outside when they do so
    unless they are jogging
    then it's okay

    My PJs are boxer-briefs and whatever undershirt I was wearing the previous day.

    Also my socks if I go to bed drunk and forget to take them off.

    What I am saying is that public appearances thusly are highly inappropriate.

    If I'm not doing a sports or something I will must likely be found in a suit that makes me look like I am a 95 year old man.

    I like to wear suits and nice shoes all the time.

    Because people just aren't trying anymore:

    Really why is it neat to look like you dig through other peoples garbage for fun and for profit.

    i have BCIT sweatpants that are the most comfortable thing in the world but, yeah, wouldn't wear outside. also they go like 5 inches past my feet and i haven't the heart to tear them or cut them, and hemming is too much work.

    i think that's it, too -- also we've conditioned ourselves to link sweatpants to certain activities. for example, whenever i take my glasses off, i feel like it's bed time. i start getting sleepy even i if wasn't sleepy at all previously. i can't draw while i'm wearing jeans, however. that be sweatpant territory.

    I don't even own pajamas, but I've been working in a job so long that requires wearing suits or dress pants and coat every day, that I would cherish the thought of being in grad school full time, going to class unshaven with a t-shirt and jeans. It's not pajama level of lazy, but I totally understand where the people wearing pajamas on campuses are coming from.

    Yeah I'm like that too with writing. In fact I'm going to do that now as it's late and the time is right.

    Also i like to put my robe on and pretend that it's a smoking jacket :wink:

    I have pajama pants, but I don't really use them for anything at the moment.

    When I'm at home they're my "not doing anything for an entire day" pants, and they are amazing
