    I was watching a young guy waddling down the street just now and it made me wonder. Do you suppose there will be an uptick in the number of middle-aged adults with hip and knee problems in a few decades? I just can't imagine the the spradle-legged way of walking it takes to keep your 3-sizes-too-big pants from falling down around your ankles can be good for your joints...

    I think there will be. I can't imagine how they think it is attractive to have their pants hanging almost to their knees... And on top of that having to walk that way to keep them on! I personally find it rather disgusting... [​IMG]

    I was definitely feeling my age as I typed that out. I think I would rather be old than subject everyone to watching me waddle with my pants not where they should be...

    My dads brother in law (my uncle by marriage) told me the greatest pants falling down and waddling story I have ever heard, although this guy didnt do it intentionally. When he was eight years old he and his father went to town to get a belt for their lawnmower. As they were coming home thier car started sputtering and died halfway up a not very steep hill. They were only a few hundred feet from their house so he told my uncle to steer the car while he got out to push. He did not realize that his belt had got snagged on the car and had come undone and as he began pushing the car, his pants actually fell all the way down to his ankles. My uncle was too short to reach the brake pedal and didnt know how to work the emergency brake and he obviously could not let go of the car as it was on a hill. His only choice was to push that car the rest of the way up the hill to the flat spot with his pants around his ankles. My uncle said even though he was little and thought that was the funniest thing in the world, he knew if he laughed he would never see nine years old.

    Fashion statement?

    I can't see anything fashionable about it.
