bums wearing nikes/jordans/etc.

so i live in chicago.. and the bums are all over the streets. wherever you turn. some are nice. some are straight up assholes. others are just looking for a pity party. BUT.. in the past maybe 6 months i've seen numerous bums wearing nikes, jordans and SBs. no joke. it's ridiculous. they'll be super dirty and ragged as f*ck then i look down at their feet and i see a brand new pair of white on white air forces and a crisp clean Yankees new era fitted. the other day i saw a bum in SB Money Cat dunk HIs (aren't those a good $200!?!) and on a regular basis i see numerous OG jordan 3s,4s, 6s, 8s, etc. (beat to shit but OG). they're not fake colorways or anything.. i see those on a regular basis too, but it's the dumb soulja boy type of guys that i see in them. tell me how a bum who has on a brand new somewhat scuffed pair of white on white forces and a brand new NY fitted (with the sticker STILL ON) is begging me for money.. and then gets heated and upset because i can't give him .25 cents or go get him something to eat. anyone else got stories?!

check your local urban outfiters for cheap monday.. marked down to $9.99.

NO LIE. just randomly at urban outfitters with the lady friend yesterday, saw a table full of jeans (tons of randoms), look on a bottom shelf and i see Cheap Mondays marked $19.99. Tight OD in dry. Tight OD in black. mine only had the drys in sizes 25-28. i'm a true 30 so i tried the 28s on thinking they would maybe fit (b/c that's my size in Nudies and all other denim) but i couldn't even get them over my waist and they were ridiculously tight on my thighs. ended up getting the black ones in a 31. [Image]. so for those of you looking for cheap mondays.. check out urban outfitters blushing your location may have them on sale.

BUT.. [I]how can i get my camera in?[/I] i was thinking.. wear a belt with a metal buckle.. and putting the camera behind my belt.. since the camera is kinda thin? so that way when the metal detector beeps.. i can be like..'that's my belt..' [I]any ideas[/I]? this is the UC set up for a concert.. i'm assuming it will be set up like that.. wth a bigger stage.. but the view from 300 shouldn't be bad at all. [Image]

what would you do? *question for everyone*

so there's this super super attractive girl in one of my classes.. really caught my eye.. always in designer denim, chanel, kitson, ed hardy, juicy couture, etc. always always rocked out.. nice eye candy. lately my family has been looking to buy a condo downtown so we've been going out with our realtor around the city on the weekends looking at places.. and we were in the lobby of a nice building and i see this girl all juicy coutoure-d out and i'm like..'whoa she looks super familiar, but whatever, she probably lives here.' so we go look at condos in the building that weekend.. nothing too special. fast forward to this weekend.. we're checking out more condos in the same building and our realtor is like..'this current condo is occupied but its similar to the one we looked at in this building before..just higher up on the 17th floor.' so we go in.. and i'm like.. 'okay girls live here. obviously, there's pink all over and there's issues of US weekly and laguna beach and OC dvds all over the place.' so we go check out the bedrooms.. ktchen.. bathrooms.. closet space for size and just overall checking out the condo and i see a ton of juicy couture, designer denim, etc just all over the girl's room on chairs, random shopping bags, hoodies draped over a chair and i'm like..'ah typical girl in chicago wardrobe.' and i was like..'wait.. i seen a girl wearing that same ed hardy hoodie.. in one of my classes.' and then it clicked in my head.. 'this is that girl's condo! the one from your class that you saw come out of the elevator the other weekend.. WHOA.' and sure enough.. i'm walking around the condo and i see a pic of her.. then the book for the class she's in with me. i wasn't weirded out.. but it was just like..'uh.. the fuck? so random..' i've never talked to this girl ever and don't really think i ever will, but it's just random knowing that i was at her place to check it out with a realtor. what would you do if you were in a situation like that? (imagine like.. you're on the search for a new apt and you see a random person with some nice kicks walk out of the building as you go in.. and the person looks familiar but you can't realize where from..and then you go look at apts wth your realtor and you realize, as you look around the apt.. that it's a member from HB's. you recognize it from the shoes all over the room and one of the rooms you see happens to be the 'background' in a w.a.y.w.t. pic... ) this is probably the 3rd random thing that's happened to me in the past week that's made me go "wtf.'' or ''how the hell?'' (situations like.. people i meet off a car forum.. add me on facebook.. and they're from California or some shit.. then it says we have friends in common and they happen to know a guy i went to middle school with..) shit like that makes me think.."damn. this world is fuckin small."

Mom throws 2 sons off bridge into oncoming traffic then jumps..

[URL] i can't even comprehend this shit. WTF. blinkyeyes By JEFF CARLTON and SCHUYLER DIXON, Associated Press Writers 1 hour, 20 minutes ago DALLAS - Motorists watched in horror Wednesday as a woman tossed two young boys off a freeway overpass, then took the two-story leap into rush-hour traffic herself. But the shocking moment had an incredibly fortunate ending. Police said Khandi Busby and her children, ages 8 and 6, somehow survived the fall onto Interstate 30's fast lane and the rush of vehicles. "It was really miraculous that we didn't have some fatalities with this incident," Dallas police spokesman Sgt. Gil Cerda said. Busby, 27, was in fair condition, a hospital spokeswoman said. Police said her sons were stable at another hospital, but hospital officials declined to comment later Wednesday. The three were able to speak with investigators, although the 8-year-old may have suffered internal injuries. Busby had not been arrested as of Wednesday but could face two charges of attempted capital murder, Cerda said. "The why remains a mystery to us," police Lt. C.L. Williams said. "If you try to apply logic to these incidents, they totally defy any logical explanation." Shortly before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, Busby and her sons walked away from her father, who had stopped for gas while driving them to a friend's house. Police do not know why Busby left with her children. "She was not fleeing for her safety," Cerda said. "She just threw them over and decided to throw herself over." Her father tried to follow the three in the car but was unable to get to them before they reached the overpass east of downtown Dallas. Police said each boy struggled with Busby as she picked him up and threw him onto the far left lane of the freeway, where cars swerved to avoid them. Police believe Busby and the 8-year-old were struck by cars, which managed to miss the younger brother and avoid collisions, Cerda said. Motorist Sondra Plunk said traffic was moving at 35 to 40 mph when one of the boys fell in front of a van one lane over and about a car length in front of her. The van fishtailed as its driver slammed the brakes and swerved around the boy. Plunk, 44, said the boy landed on his side and then immediately popped up onto his hands and knees, staring directly into the van's headlights. "I saw his face," Plunk said of the boy. "I saw the fear in his face. He rolled to all fours. Knowing he was still alive, knowing he was still conscious and he had the presence of mind to think, 'My God, I have to get out of here.'" Medical experts said two-story falls can be fatal, but not always. Dr. Dave Milzman, a member of the American College of Emergency Physicians, said that if someone lands feet first their odds of surviving a fall from 22 feet are good. "As long as they landed kind of upright, it's not that unusual not to injure themselves severely," Milzman said. Busby has a criminal record, including convictions for assault and criminal trespass of a habitation. Child Protective Services had intervened with her on at least three occasions for incidents that police described as relatively minor. In October 2004, investigators substantiated allegations that the boys were unkempt and wore dirty clothes. Busby was ordered to take parenting skills training. In March 2005, the boys were placed in foster care following a domestic dispute between Busby and her boyfriend. Busby was arrested, and the boys stayed in foster care for about five months before moving back in with their mother. A third allegation in October 2006, involving neglectful supervision, was unsubstantiated by state investigators.
