Yes, it is retarded.

And the Carnival is always dissapointing. Real animals, such as cheetahs, should be raced, not horses.

I love how people throw on expensive clothes and consider themselves stylish.

Australians..at Royal Ascot!


Sator excepted obviously.

It's retarded. Sprezzatura is concealing an art form as effortlessness, not rumpling your silhouette and buttoning the top button "because everyone else buttons the middle button."

Sometimes I think people need a license to wear a jacket. Or at least a couple Flusser books.

I sorta like the title of this thread, we should make one like this where you post pictures and posters give their opinion.
