I purchased two new pairs of cargo shorts on Saturday because my others were getting too big and ratty looking. They will be relegated to outdoor work wear.

Any pants getting too big is an excellent occurrence, and one to be celebrated.

We purchased my two older children kayaks for early birthday presents this weekend. They immediately took them up to our local lake and spent 8. hours. on the water... I stayed up there and fished and whatnot. I wore cargo shorts and shoes without socks the entire day. I thought of this thread.

I stopped at the store the other day to pick up some new cargo pants (long pants) for work since my others are beginning to develop some holes. There were two racks of cargo pants. There were about fourteen racks of cargo shorts. I took it as a sign that I'm in the top 12.5% by wearing full-length pants.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I was wearing some earlier when I schooled The Boy on Galaga. Afterwards he asked, "When did you get to be such a bad-ass?"

Obviously it is because I wear cargo shorts.

Cargo shorts are permissible when: 1) it is necessary to carry cargo; and 2) said cargo cannot or should not be carried by other means, such as a jacket, vest, or carrying bag of some sort. Avoiding the unnecessary raising of one's upper body temperature is a reasonable cause for the eschewing of a vest or jacket, but one must remember that full pockets in an upper body garment or a satchel do not affect one's movement quite the same as heavy pants pockets.

1) It is always necessary to carry cargo.

2) No shirt. Therefore, cargo shorts.

You know his real name was Lipschitz, right? Ralph Lipschitz. You're wearing Lipschitz cargo shorts.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

I did not know that.

You know, AMJ thinks we need more pipe and tobacco talk but it's little nuggets of knowledge like this that really make CPS worthwhile.
