Gangbanger wannabe


Here is me as a gangbanger wannabe. You can find these guys all over myspace. They got the hat turned backwards and the stoopud gang signs. And they try to look all bad with their gun turned sideways like they saw it in some brainless action movie. And of course there is the dumb expression on the face that just begs you to go smack the little twit upside the head. So what I want to know is why someone would wanna be a gangbanger? What is the least bit appealing about any of that? Yo, wazzup wit dat, cuz?

Not to mention that accuracy falls off the scale dramatically when you try to shoot sideways.

Thought about your Mandelbrot Set fractals when I took the kids to UTA planetarium last night (well, Friday night, I guess we're up a little late...).

Maybe it's the prep school education, but I can never quite square with kids using 'ghetto' talk. I wasn't into Izod and such, but did try to keep a fairly neat appearance (will admit to having LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoes).

There's a 6th grade center here where my kids went and I listened to the vice principal give his orientation talk to incoming kids. Referring to the practice of boys sagging pants; he explained the practice originated from prison inmates and said if he caught any students doing it he would send them home for a belt. If they couldn't go home, he said he would cinch their pants right there with a large plastic zip tie and they would be out of luck if they had to go to the bathroom. I liked him but he probably couldn't get away with this in today's politically correct world...

We can't say that Hollywood has never done us any favors as long as the criminal element keeps shooting sideways. Thanks to all those movies where the bad guys hold their guns that way, real criminals keep missing what they are shooting at.
