Dammit.

 

 

I still see it a lot. Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster, allah, god, Buddha, whatever...  I certainly don’t mind.

Yup.  I know the feeling.  I came across the build thread for Curmudgeon's GT6 project.  In the last post, he thanked me for a part I had sent him, which I had not seen before.  He passed a couple of weeks after he posted that.

I was just thinking that when I saw WB Jones' posts. He was one of the few GRM forum folks I saw in person regularly and SWMBO knew him as related to another recent post.

I almost spit out my drink earlier this semester when I spotted someone in the college cafeteria wearing skin-tone leggings. I bet I wasn't the only one who did a double-take.

Same thing happened to me yesterday at the airport in TCI. This specimen was closing in on sixty.

"They were initially made of a mix of nylon and Lycra; more specialized fabrics have been introduced to provide moisture-wicking, [Canoe Skins], and odor reduction."

Just read through all of this... and nobody ever reminded anyone   "don't forget - spandex is a privilege, not a right !"

I may have spoken too soon.  The servers at the restaurant I now work at still wear them.

And I'm stuck in the back.

Just to add a data point here, I usually wear under armor type tights under my motorcycle leathers to help with wicking and cleanliness and getting them on/off. I went to get them on Sunday and they were in the wash. My wife says "wear these" and handed me a set of her tights. She doesn't personally wear them as pants outside the house, but they are identical to what we're discussing here. They were fabulous.  So much nicer than my regular stretchy under layer. I'm now firmly in the "men should be socially allowed to wear yoga pants/tights in public" camp.

Hilarious.  Just promise if you ever do stop by the Detroit Metro area for a GTG on your way to or from the UP each year, please don't demonstrate your new found passion for ladies tights to us.

Yoga pants would make good long underwear for men engaged in outdoor activities in cold weather.  Different thicknesses for different temperatures.

As for women, some can get away with just about anything, and look great, others should stick to a Hawaiian muumuu.  I don't what to see Rosie O'Donnel in yoga pants but Jennifer Lawrence, sure.

I'm a cyclist, so inappropriately tight fitting outerwear goes with the territory. Especially when road riding (on a mtn bike, I usually wear baggy shorts for the pockets).  The chamois tends to hide "things", but at this point in my life, I've definitely entered the "MAMIL" * stage.  But for better or worse, a side affect of aging is a general "DGAF" attitude regarding how people see me.

*(a euphemism in the cycling-crazed UK for "Middle Aged Men In Lycra" - usually somewhat overweight)
