    And chino, as a singular noun, refers to a dude from China or from some place were the people look like they are from China or to a pair of chinos worn with one leg rolled up because the wearer has only one leg and / or is trying to steal your bike.

    I have always wondered what a pant would look like. Is the plural defined by the two legs, or do you have to remove half of block as well? And then how do you half it, side by side or front to back?

    Get that crudely photoshopped western propaganda out of here. The Supreme Leader had perfect teeth.

    What is wrong with that poor girl's eye?
    Looks like a fruity case of pink eye, possibly.
    Actually, I think her eye is fake so nevermind but I hope her lab partner washes his hands after testing.


    Ryback are you over 15? 18?
    Those are rhetorical and thus I cannot be held responsible if that type of question is inappropriate in the forums.

    Where is the pic of you in the shirt? You took one of your pants so........

    Or post one wearing the pants and shirt.
    Is there nowhere else to shop in Sydney besides RL store?

    Its fine that he shops at RL, I advocate it.

    I want to see him wear his shirt and pants.

    He mentioned in the other thread he was 21 or so, didn't go to college, and seemingly proud of the fact. This guy has got his shit together, just a matter of him posting a picture to prove it.

    Yes, I agree that it is fine if he only shops there. I just found it odd but that is also based on the assumption he bought these items at the store on different days. Perhaps that is wrong and he is just stringing out the posts for each item, all of them purchased at once.

    I do recall his approximate age but when I first read his original post, I thought how awful I(and others, sure) was for picking on some innocent child. Plus it would explain away so much of the naivete so I keep hoping this actually is the case even though it makes me a bad person.

    PIC OF YOUR OUTFIT, RYBACK!

    Now I thought the poor girl was nursing a black eye, because her lab partner brother took a swing at her. "MY TURN FOR THE FUCKIN' MICROSCOPE, BITCH!!! I WANNA CLOSE LOOK AT MY RL PANTS!!".

    I wish I could get a black eye like that. Sweet and swirly. Plus she is smiling which implies delirium and I could sure go for a heaping of that.
    And I will say it, not knowing anything else, do you want the boy or the girl doing the science?
    He looks pleased, too. Imagine how excited he will be when he gets that chino swatch to examine.

    Now I want the boys and girls doing science at school. So they can tell me if my authentic Ralph Lauren pants really are chinos or not. Because doing the lab work myself could give me a biased test result.
