    OK, first of all, Low, this isn`t exactly the medium most people use to come out. Now, if you feel we are the people that you want to know this due to lack of anyone else that would care, I applaud your bravery.

    Yeah SWISH and what not. Okay, I`m ready to suck up my pride and ask, WTF does FTW mean (Fu*k The White, For The Win, Follow That Wabbit)???

    and side note, I JUST realized that it`s WTF backwards... am I getting close?

    FTW typically means For The Win (and adversely FTL means For The Lose). i have never heard it used as F* the Whites, but if an angry internet "minority" (even though i think every race is actually getting quite equal in population) felt inclined to say that, so be it.

    as for the article, i thought the netting the chick was wearing IS a fashion statement of today, at least it looked like something a stupid model would wear? and how are some of those clothes any worse than some of the designs that i have seen, like a couple of years ago the shirt that wasnt, all it was was a collar and sleeves (or was i imagining this?) or some of the dresses that get walked down the run way but never seen on anyone in public.

    what im wondering is why dont we have more articles about why we arent like the film Back to the Future suggested...

    But CRIPE! What were they on!? and how come they all thought we`d be in an age far beyond anything a jetston`s writer on drugs could have come up with. And what`s with the dude`s outfit? Hair from the 1600`s, a suit from a Romeo and Juliet play, and a stolen copy of batman`s first conceptual bat-belt.

    That was so inaccurate it was hilarious. But at last they got the carrying around phones part right. That`s why I don`t even bother speculating too much on the future, because I`ll probably be dead wrong anyway. We always tend to over/underestimate the development of technology and culture.

    "The likely clad woman of tomorrow-
    Oooh, swish!"
    Ha ha ha...I love the past.
    As for the transparent net thing, we wear that crap all the time! Maybe not as a dress, but as fish-net shirts were popular for a time.
