[Quote] Trump's morally corrupt and Hillarty's politically corrupt. The American population decided which they believe is worse. Is Hillary more qualified to be president? Undoubtedly. But that isn't what this election was about. Similarity with Brexit is that the Leave voters over here were motivated and enthusiatic enough to go out and vote, just like Trump's supporters. If everyone who would have voted for Hillary had actually bothered to go out and vote, she would have won easily. Over here 90% of 18-25 would have voted remain, however only 36% of them voted, I'd imagine the stats are for Hillary with the same age group are similar.

Democrats fucked up by nominating Hillary. If you're facing an opponent who is running on the basis of being an anti establishment figure in a political climate which is extremely anti establishment, why the fuck would you nominate someone who embodies the political establishment in human form? Trump was the only candidate who could have beaten Hillary and Hillary was the only candidate who could have beaten Trump. People are being far too dramatic about this on both sides, neither candiate was better or worse than the other, they were both completely useless. At least trump will make the news more exciting though.

/r/streetwear is some wack shit

Streetwear has been dead since Odd Future propelled Supreme into the mainstream in 2012. I didn't realise how mainstream the shit has become until I went to Supreme recently to get the Shaolin Temple tee from the Barrington Levy collab and there was a bigger line than any North Face or Nike collab from before like 2013. Also the demographic has changed, used to be a queue of like 100 16-25 year olds now it's more like 400 12-15 year olds. Palace is the same hyped up shit now to. I remember back in the good old days around 2009 when there was only about 20 asians and myself lining up for the John Coltrane collab at The Hideout (RIP). Still a few people and brands who do it properly but they're like a fucking edangered species nowadays.

I always thought seeing a shink would be a bit of a laugh just to see what they come out with. I'm far to cynical to take that shit seriously though. Problem with shrink's is, if you are seeing one then you, and their other patients, are effectively their income, so it's difficult to see how them helping you to any real extent is in their interest. That's another thing about most people, they are inherintly selfish. Why would they help you if it doesn't benefit them? Saying that I'm sure there are a few doing it for the right reasons, but nobody knows you better than you do.  Also I've gotta take exception with one thing Memphis said "if you want to be rich when you're 40 or 50", that shouldn't be your main aim, now don't get me wrong being rich is better and far less stressful than being poor no doubt. But never put money before happiness, that shit will fuck you up. I've seen a lot of people put getting money ahead of doing what they want and they always end up sad and lonely. I am by no means religious but Jesus did say one thing that I agree with, it's often misquoted as "money is the root of all evil" but what he actaually said is "the love of money is the root of all evil" i.e. Greed. Look at most of the world's problems and it can always be traced back to some insecure fuck's greed.  Oh and Shiba don't do something just cause your parents want you to. They want what's best for you, but they almost certainly don't know what's best for you. I've had the same shit, people comparing you to other family members saying "why aren't you more like...." but then when you end up doing well at something they didn't want you to do it's "I always knew you were going to do well". Again do you, listen to people but don't be dictated to.

@Captain Al I feel like I know what you mean fam, I'm 22 now but I think I was in a similar place to you when I was about 19. I'll try and keep this short but it'll probably turn into an essay. So basically, same as you, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my life, felt like I'd missed opportunities, drifted away from friends etc. Now this will probably sound kind of weird but bear with me, the one thing that really helped me gain some perspective was reading a lot of philosophy and realising just how completely devoid of meaning and purpose life actually is, and not on some "life is pointless, I'll kill myself" type shit, just that there is no reason why life should have a purpose. Like every other form of living organism we are hear to survive and reproduce, that's it. The problem with humans is we have developed superior intelligence to other life forms. So instead of just getting on with eating and fucking like everything else we ask ourselves all these questions that have no answer, "what's the meaning of life?", "why am I here?", there is no reason, we are just here as the result of a series of random genetic mutations. Now this may sound depressing as fuck and I'm not sure what your views on afterlife and religion are, but I think that when we are dead the experince is most likely similar to how it feels before we were born. Basically nothing, you could say it's "black" but that doesn't accurately describe just how empty a feeling it is, we see/hear/feel absolutely nothing before we are born. Now I don't know about you, but to me experiencing something is better than experiencing the completely empty space so devoid of feeling and consciouness that is death. Basically we're lucky to be alive and should be thankful for that no matter the circumstances we are in.  Anyway after I came to the conclusion life does not need to have a meaning I thought that I might as well enjoy my short time here, so I quit a job I had working in an office that I completely hated and started working various trainee roles for production companies. Now, 2 years later, I'm doing something that I actually enjoy, and even though I'm getting paid about 15% less than I was a couple years I really don't give a shit. So in terms of what you should do with your life I think you basically just need to think about what you enjoy doing or find something that you're interested and try and pursue it, and trust me I know that it's not as easy as just picking something and going with it but it's a start. In terms of inhibitions I think the same thought process can be helpful, the earth is 4,543,000,000 years old and we are here for about 75 years if we're lucky. When you realise just how insignificant we are and the tiny amount of time we are here, do you really have time to give a fuck about what other people think? Wear what you want, listen to what you want, just do whatever the fuck you want. I have to say I don't think a lot of people think like this lmao, most people just go through life with their head in sand doing what society wants them to do without realising it (I understand how corny that sounds but whatever), we might just be the unlucky/lucky few (depending on your perspective) who actually think about this shit and try and understand it. This forum seems to draw in all the fucking weirdos who think about this kind of thing lmao, that might have something to do with streetwear being an "outsider" thing, who knows. Anyway, I feel like this won't help you at all lol, just trying to put down all these ideas and experiences, things have a way of working out fine though, trust.

Does the 1 style per item rule apply to skate decks? Never bought decks from Supreme online before.

I wish Supreme would make some decent graphic tee's and tone down their designs, can't wear most of this unless you want to look like a 14 year old. For the last 4-5 seasons it's been 95% shite. I'll probably just get the motion logo hoodie and a Mandini ashtray.

Kanye's alright but that's about it, hip hop really is awful nowadays, some of it is tolerable but no better than that. I dont care what anyone says Big L is/was the best rapper, if you haven't heard this before listen to it, if you have heard it before listen to it again. [Embed content] Jay-Z's decent on this as well, funny hearing him talk back in 95'.

I get your point, but someone with a knife is going to struggle to kill 5+ people before he is stopped. Someone with a gun can easily get 20+ in a matter of seconds. By "take my chances" I meant that I would be able to turn around and leg it away from a bloke with a knife, not try and fight him, again the same can't be said for a guy with a gun. The Lee Rigby thing was weird cause the killers hit and killed him with a car and then tried to cut his head off but didn't manage to do it, they were talking to passers by calmly saying they just wanted to kill the soldier, that's why no one was panicking.

[Quote] If you're caught with a pistol in the UK you pretty much get 10 years in prison instantly, the trial is just a exercise, it's a pretty good deterrent. That's why we have less than 1500 illegal firearms in the country and only 30 murders using firearms in the last year. We also don't have to worry about terrorists shooting places up, just bombing, stabbing etc. And I'd rather take my chances against a bloke with a knife rather than a gun any day. Also Americans calling Europe racist?? lmao. It's common knowledge Americans are the most obese, religious, ignorant, racist, stupid, people in the western world. I still fuck with you though lmao.

USA mass shootings are barely reported over here anymore. It gets 30 seconds on the news like "there's been another mass shooting, x amount of people dead, America still isn't doing shit about it, move on". It's turning into a bit of a joke to be honest. The rest of the western world thinks you lot are stupid.

Condeming Islam is not the same as condeming muslims. I hate all religions equally, but I don't hate religious people. There is a difference between an ideology and people who follow that ideology. Also saying christians did this 500 years ago, jews did this 300 years ago, hindus did this etc etc, is completely meaningless. We are talking about now, the people commiting terrorist acts are living now. What some bloke did 600 years ago has absolutely no relevance at all.

To clarify: War against Islam is not the same as war against muslims.
