Jeans certainly need not be blue, and I would say don't even need to be denim. I would argue that jeans are made by the cut. If you were to ill-advisedly make a pair of slacks out of denim, they would not be jeans.

However, to answer your question, though the default color for jeans is blue, if no other colors were jeans, then Mr. Greenjeans would not be a valid person.

But yeah, it's the cut.

I used to have pink and green jeans, denim that was just dyed crazy colors, they were even Levis button-fly 501s.

Heh. My way and runstaverun's way are listed as acceptable. Yours is just scary.

I tip my hat to you good sir, for you have bested me in the hatred of Philadelphia. I believe that the best thing about Philly is that it ends, but that does not compare to your great statement.

Philly just sucks.

Yet it is still better than Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Detroit in my book - at least NYC is nearby.

eks-peh-RE-ment is how I pronounce it.

You cannot Destro. It's Cobra Commander or bust.

I was always more of a Zartan man, myself.

Philly hate

I have never met anyone who hates Philly more than you.

This however is not one of your (numerous) good qualities. It's more like a hairy mole on an otherwise attractive face.

Re: Philly hate

At least that carpet sample is gone.

* ecs-per (as in pear, not as in 'per diem')-ah-ment
* denim + right cut = colour irrelevant (FUCK YOU FIREFOX COLOUR IS RIGHT)
* with that fucker graye doing the whole 'casual' thing, destro is good
* I liked running up the art institute steps like the walking cliche I am, but it subjected me to awful rain and Hall and Oates, and that's a definite black mark against a city. At least it means you're out of Camden.

That being said: soft drink, donuts/circle work, grahge, prod-use. I do like to use the american 'toob' and 'noo' over the aussie 'tyube' and 'neuuu', though.

Also on that track, 'aluminium' has two i's, buoy = boy, quay = key, it's a manual, not a 'stick', and for a country that likes to drag everything in and spit it out with your own polish on it, LOL at 'beestro, meet-su-bee-shi, huun-day, moz-da, et al.' You collectively both look and sound stupid saying these. We just anglicise the fuck out of them: bis-tro, mit-su-bish-ee, h-yun-day, maz-da.

  • Yeah, but we've got tons of destro. Uzik, Konrad, and some new guy Ash with awesome gear and experience. The only affliction `lock left, besides me, is Finagle/Nevyn.
  • Yeah, Camden's shit. At least Newark is a suburb of NYC, Camden's just a suburb of... Philly.
  • I sometimes find myself saying stick, but I usually say manual. It's the opposite of automatic, after all!

Philadelphia, through Camden, has done something brilliant. Not only is one of the worst parts of their city not technically in the city, it's in a different state.
