What’s in your Pants?
« on: November 13, 2019, 09:45:58 AM »
I did some reading and wrote up an article of public interest. It's about the chemicals in clothing and inherent possibilities.

There are also a couple of links there, an article and a paper after my write.

Old denim is like a guitar string. They start out kind of stiff, then there is that period in between that sounds and moves so sweet. Eventually it gets kind of shabby and breaks. When the knees have gone out on my 'ol jeans, my heart has broken....

when the knees go chop the legs off and turn them into shorts.

its the pockets going that kills them for me,  all the keys wear holes.   it is possible to buy replacement pockets but a bit of a faff to sew them in.

The change pouch goes on mine, then I put coins in and they run down my leg, or get caught up in my cash and cards. It is always handy to have DF along with her little bag at resorts, or when kilted. Places where I need money and have no pockets.

Hmm, I hadn't thought that the title would bring a literal question to answer. I just figured the thread would be about pollutants in clothing. Well then, keys in left pocket. Change, hairband, any loose pills, or dental floss might be found in my change pocket in Levis. Otherwise, the rest goes into the right pocket. Comb in back pocket. Usually, a pair of tall minimal bikini gruns...no hidden surprises in my pants....a ticket stub, or note to myself. My hands end up stuffed in my pockets sometimes.

An uncomfortable Jbee?...nobody's in my pants...certainly not at the moment....

I have sometimes placed pocket items in my socks, when pants were not available, but if pants weren't available, then socks wouldn't generally be available either...If I can do it, barefoot.

There is a sexual innuendo, but I'll opt out of it.

When I'm wearing pants, I generally have my keys in the left pocket, with a lockblade pocket knife clipped to it on the top. The right pocket gets a Victorinox Swiss army knife, a money clip, and my phone. I also usually wear a fanny pack that holds my ID, ready cash and credit cards, a Leatherman tool, flashlight, and other potentially useful emergency items.

my pants is fallin to pieces right now.  Can't bear to part with them so end up wearing them till they fall off in rags.   That's the ones I was using for woods and shop work today.   Just because it was too chilly to not wear something.   What's in em?  dirt and grease for the most part,  I'm still sort of in em and spillin out.  as for pocket fillin that's usually a folding knife, either swiss or that generic old thing that stays sharp better than the swiss.   But the swiss has a saw blade on it that comes in really handy sometimes.   For going places a comb and billfold and some change gets added.   Of course I switch to a better looking version to go places. The old fallin apart kind is just for chilly weather home work.

Keys, handkerchief right pocket,
Phone, change pouch left,
Wallet back right,
Comb, pen left breast pocket of shirt or leg left side pocket of cargo trousers.
Always the same if I can.

At a minimum, house keys and a handkerchief--unless I forget one or the other. These are not things I think about very much.

Right pocket cash and cards. If change pocket, change and a piece of dental floss. Left, keys. Rear right, comb.

The issue here, I should think, is what to do with those things when there are no pockets...then again, I don't need these things when I'm naked. I need these when I'm at the store.

If I were to go to a store naked then a purse, or bag on a belt would suffice.

I have said before that the fact that god, evolution, mother earth or whatever we all spring from has not given us a natural pocket, say, perhaps usefully situated in front or on the buttocks, is evidence that nudism/naturism is unnatural and a mortal sin.  Or more likely that, since naturism/nudism is in fact a good thing that this is evidence that god does not exist, otherwise how could s/he have let their omnipotence lapse and not afforded us humans the benefit of such a useful adjunct to naturism! And, continuing the metaphysical speculation, why is it that we humans are so inextricably attached to wearing textile items of all sorts?  That looks like a punishment for original sin to suffer eternally the discomfort of clothes when we should really all be permanently comfortable and naked!!


Sorry, I couldn't resist the above humorous speculations - apologies, peace and respect to those with other beliefs!  Pax,pax,pax

We wear textiles because we choose to live in places where such things, or furs, are necessary. Total and everyday nudity appears to be limited to those places where the climate is more benign, at least most of the time. And in fact, the case has been made that humans originated in those places. The nature of sin does not turn on the existence of pockets, a relatively modern thing, except among kangaroos and like animals. Some clothes might be uncomfortable, others anything but. I've never heard anyone say a cotton t-shirt was uncomfortable, except perhaps for those who were particularly sensitive. For them, I recommend silk.

Ötzi the iceman is an interesting person to study. Something like 5,000 years ago, he was wearing both furs and textiles, had a belt with a pouch, a sort of backpack and shoes made of, I think, fur and cord. But everything he had was necessary for survival in the Alps. (Although he didn't--he had been in a fight and had been shot). I guess you could say he was a modern man. But he sure lived off the grid.

So, we evolved out of lush circumstance, with no need for pockets into an upright cruising hunter thing. Are we expected to grow pockets, when we obviously began to make them instead and also have the use of hands. I don't see many people of the plains, or aborigines using pockets, just some with a bag, or a stick, etc.

If we're running down our prey, we don't want to be loaded down ourselves. Let someone else carry the load when in the hunt.

Then, the gatherers, would need some dang big pockets. I think that even the kangaroo's pocket is a home/shelter for the young and not so much a carrying case. Lower center of gravity for parents and speed until the kid has its own.

Sorry, I had to make that remark....

Although it should not be imagined that primitive or isolated peoples have easy lives, it is nevertheless said, so I am led to believe, that such peoples actually have more leisure time than we do. Or more correctly, they enjoy more leisure time than we do. We use up a lot of time commuting, as you probably know, slaves to the clock. But sometimes we have the idea that we have to keep busy. We have hobbies, we play games, we go out for entertainment and for eating out and sometimes, a few of us go hiking. American Indians played games but none of the other things. They relaxed and smoked their pipes. I'm referring to the men, of course. The women had more to do.
