Or betimes his shirt reveals that he has broad back muscles like someone who spends a lot of time rowing (rowin') a boat, which prompted an inquiry (interrogative comment spoken with a rising inflection) from his hallway companion, which inquiry could be misunderstood as direct address?

Hey there lasbar no I do not resemble Rowan Atkinson at all. I do have a child named Rowan, but I abandoned him when he was of baby and no one even knows about that. Maybe she knew the abandoned child, and maybe the child looks like me (how would I know I abandoned him.)

(Only one claim in the aboveposted post is true.)

Herschel backbacks... why? Suddenly absolutely everyone MUST have the exact same, shitty looking backpack. I totally don't get it.

Because they're cheap and look pretty good ??

um no & no. $50 for the "regular" one, $120+ for the stupid rucksack-ish looking monstrosity I wouldn't consider cheap for some nylon and a strap. the "regular" one is just that... the same as any other backpack on planet earth, and again the rucksack is fucking ugly so that doesn't jive either. Same for RVCA, Uggs, fucking yoga pants, Beats headphones, fake baller sneakers, etc. Point is any actual justification does not exist. How does the sudden herd mentality of "oh I just absolutely have to over-spend on a poorly made product" happen? Is it just "oh I'm an idiot, and all these other idiots are doing this so that's what I'm going to do"?? (clearly that's a rhetorical question) lol.

The Herschel rucksack looks pretty good, although no one would mistake it for a premium item. The backpacks are just normal backpacks, but in my day everyone wore jansports and I can't recall anyone getting upset about it

Time for us to get freegin' serious about backpacks in this country we got a cultural decline going on of which no justification, no peace!

Jansport kept it real and didn't make ridiculous marketing statements like "Herschel Supply Co. manufactures the finest quality backpacks, bags, travel goods and accessories. Our goal is to create timeless product with a fine regard for detail."

I don't wear backpacks. I could never deprive the world of a portion of my chest the strap would cover.

Lol I never saw that. Could it be that someone is translating Chinese ad copy? They love the hyperbole like "eat our mango and feel your soul a refreshing breeze"

What is that largish nylon purse with leather handles and pull tabs that every woman and her sister has in at least one color combination?

"which character in (name of series/movie/book) are you?"
