    #13 – that is fucking AWESOME!!! There's your learning leason for today, kids…

    • Obrien

      Yea, cuz prisoners just sayin' "I want someone to FUCK ME IN THE ASS" didn't do the trick… o.0

    • Der_Joe

      I think most of the people who wear their pants like this, know this already

      Learning "leasons" out the wazoo.

    • Imyourhuckleberry

      Why are the three guys white? Yea some dumb white guys do it but the vast majority are our Nubian brothers

      • https://thechive.com/ mattythegooch

        White or Black, anyone dressed like that is eventually go to "get shit on their dick for one cigarette"…to quote The Ghetto Boys, respectively!

    • Redynz

      After this one, I won't be able to resist laughing at everyone I see wearing their pants around their ankles.

      …wait, nothing has changed.

    • 1zmaj

      lesson being don't trust everything that comes up on chive, especially in posts named everything-on-the-internet-is-true?

    • MCMLX

      I heard the practice came from hand-me-down clothing that was too big for the younger siblings.

      Also heard the phrase "Rich white kids spending a fortune to look like poor black ones"

      • The_Dood

        I was under the impression that prisons only carried limited sizes of pants back in the day, so if you were skinny, they didn't fit very well and would constantly be falling down. When the prisoners were released they brought the trend out with them because they had become used to it. I have no idea if it's true or not.

      • gradaddy

        i was under the impression it was because their butts are too big to get pants up over them

    • Pwithc

      Prisoners aren't allowed to have belts, cause they'd kill people with them. So their pants would fall down. Nothing to do with being gay.

      • somebloke

        Yup, thats the origin, but if we spread this wonderful new myth, it might help end the ridiculous practice!

    • dan234

      The reason for this is actually because prisons do not necessarily fit prisoners for proper sized clothes and since prisoners are not allowed to have BELTS their pants naturally sag. Not sure whats dumber, the caption on the picture or the people who believe it…

      • Biggus Diccus

        It's funny that black people think emulating a prisoner is a good thing. If only suicide was fashionable.

    • hMMMM

      i happen to think the opposite. if your pants are anywhere near your bellybutton, then i think it's gay.

    • Craigery

      You actually believe that's true?

    • Mason420

      I am pretty sure the truth is that it started with people who were just too stupid to figure out how pants work.

    • Biggus Diccus

      Yep, because there is nothing I hate more than seeing some moron waddle down the street like a penguin because his pants are around his thighs. I'd rather this story take hold over reality, maybe it will discourage the practice.

    • Oakroscoe

      A great story, but not true.

      According to the writer Edward Bunker, who spent most of his adult life in prison, it originated from when the clothes were originally given to the convicts when they initially entered the prison. The inmates with money could bribe the guys handing out clothes to get a set that fit. The poorer inmates, which at that time were more often than not black, couldn't afford the bribe so they were given then largest sizes shirts and pants. They turned it into a fashion statement. And like many trends, it worked it's way out of the prisons onto the streets. And now we have baggy pants.

    • Scott

      I've never seen this many "thumbs up" on a Chive post. You win the interwebs.

    • http://www.facebook.com/dbeirne David J Beirne

      Not only is this NOT TRUE. (It did originate in prisons with the practice of taking away belts and shoelaces to prevent suicides, look at 90s rap, most of them wear unlaced boots as well= prison issue) but it's also a little homophobic that the worst thing you can think of to deter people is consensual gay sex.

    • NofxFan

      Hmm… looks like Canada is unchanged in this map. Mexico's territory was still hundreds of miles away from the Canadian border. How would they have had siestas?

    • Leonel_LyL

      Maybe you should study history.

      • Get Real

        Um – okay. The US Mexican War, which ended with the Treaty Of Guadalupe gave the US sole possession of what is present day California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona. It also established the southern US/Northern Mexican border at the Rio Grande river.

        Good day to you Leonel. I said Good day.

        • JDB

          You beat me to it.

        • MJKIVP

          HAHAHA Well said sir… If my country had a bad ass army and a less corrupt government we probably would've kept that land. I like what you did with California, can't imagine it any other way and I don't want to. That's not Mexico (Even if it's full of Mexicans), doesn't matter how much Mexicans on that side want to make it so. If you want Mexico come to Tijuana, come live in the motherland… I dare you… HAHAHA


          • Rhadammanthis

            totally agree with you man, I'm from Aguscalientes, jjaja it would be nice to see how they manage to live here in Mexico 😉

            • bigdeal

              yeah, cuse living in that shithole is great. and your taunting ppl to come live there? because your proud of your shithole? yes please, lets all go over and us women can get raped and our men can get their heads chopped off! yay! fun!
              our daughters can get married off at 13, have 9 kids and get beat daily. our boys can not go to school and get on the streets selling plaster statues …FOREVER.
              what a world of promise.

              i guess its pussy to not want to live like that. fucking fags. both of you.

              • MJKIVP

                HAHAHAHA Fucking idiot… You have no clue what living in Mexico is like. The closest thing to knowing is what you see in the news, you've never been out of your barn my sheep friend. You can't say that, you've never lived here. You don't know what our education is like (which has me writing better English than you). I have my own house, my car, a beautiful girlfriend, I can party every day of the week, I have a good job, a great family that taught me to respect anyone who deserves it. Just because you have nice freeways, clean roads and nice cars means you're a better country. I FUCKING LOVE my country and wouldn't change it for any other one. Just because a lot of people choose to go to the US doesn't mean that ALL OF US want to be there or wishes they could have been blessed with the American Dream. I was blessed with a Mexican family, and Mexican friends and a Mexican way of living and it's the fucking shit. I've never seen anyone rape some one, or kill someone and I've never in my 27 years living in Tijuana (Most dangerous place in the world, according to your news) been mugged or robbed. You wouldn't make it here, not because something bad would happen to you, but because you don't even have enough brain to learn another language other that fucking English, you're so fucking paranoid that you wouldn't even drink the water here. You wouldn't make it in China, India, any country in South America, Europeans fucking hate you, you won't go to Africa (FUCK THAT), you won't make it any other place other that the controlled, "safe", "free" country you live in right now. So stop talking shit… Kiss my Mexican ass… And have a good life…

        Actually is is 10.5% of Hispanic Origin so that would mean more than just Mexicans. But don't believe me go to the Pentagon if you need more evidence Senor Alexandro. Please try to keep up.

    #21 If only….

    • Owen Smithers

      Owning the land doesn't automatically create wealth, quality health care, education, and a ton of other benefits. Those things come from a free, moral, engaged people, in a stable society, making choices in an open market, electing a government whose primary purpose is to protect the rights of the people. That's how the US got to the point that everyone wanted to exploit it.

      • Iceman2509

        Well said Owen. As I said earlier, Manifest Destiny.

      • Craigery

        And "owning the land" is as simple as slaughtering most of the people who already live there and forcing the rest onto reservations. It's Manifest Destiny. The whiteness of our skin and our devotion to Jesus give us the right – no, the OBLIGATION – to conquer and displace anyone who has darker skin or different beliefs.

        • thedude325

          Well fuck man…I don't think the natives were entitled to the entire continent. Besides they weren't exactly saints. Not that the settlers were always right but not all the Indians were exactly friendly.

        • manifhurst derpstiny

          it has nothing to do with skin color, the dumb have to be treated like it because they get in the way and are dumb. This will probably come back to hurt 'Merica down the road.

        • Cynical or not

          FYI, Latino's are nothing more than the bastard children from the raping of Native Americans by Spaniards. Remember, for nearly 300 years before the US, we were all Europeans over here in colonies. We didn't start any of that shit, we just took what we learnt and applied it here.

    • _maxPain_

      Hey Leonel,, Looking at u'r past comments on this site there is one consistency about you and your long history of hostility remarks towards the US. As a Canadian I'm quite happy and glad to have my U.S neighbors and would never allow this scenario to change.
      So grow up,,get a life and shape up or ship out ..

      Comprendé la rasa !!

    • Leonel's truth

      is if having this land would some how make your country not poor and corrupt. all this map means is that illegals would be flooding oklahoma, arkansas, and missouri. so proud of your heritage and customs. can't fix your own country so come here and make our country look like yours.

      • Chantal

        Holy shit. I didn't realize Americans were so fucking racist against Mexicans. I mean, usually the racist asshole get a bunch of thumbs down.. but you guys are upvoting racist comments? I don't care where you come from, a racist comment is always wrong.

      • ShakeyTheMoyle

        WhereTF is Tejas?! If I want to mingle with the Espanol! crowd I'll go to Covington, across the river from Cincinnati.

      • Cynical or not

        Tejas is a Caddo (Native American) word meaning "friend," pendejo.

        If you want to appear like less of a dumbass on the internet, please think before you type.

        If you want to fail at trolling… WELL THEN FULL SPEED AHEAD CUZ UR DOING IT RIGHT

        • Underbaker

          It also is Tejas, the region that is today Texas and it also was meant to be a joke because at least in San Antonio more people speak Espanol then English, amigo.

          Wikipedia entry – Tejas is the Spanish spelling of a Caddo word taysha, which means "friend" or "ally". In the 17th century the Spanish knew the westernmost Caddo peoples as "the great kingdom of Tejas" and the name lived on to become the name of the 28th state of the United States – Texas. http://www.texasbeyondhistory.net/tejas/index.htm

          Tejas, the code name for a microprocessor developed by Intel.
          Tejas, the fifth album by the blues-rock band ZZ Top.

      How did the state of ignorance stop that from happening?

      • Cynical or not

        Alabama didn't do shit. Are you even looking at the same map as the rest of us?

    • Dr. Prof. Patrick

      google "First Mexican Empire"…. Texas didn't stop anything, it seceded after years of this being a reality.
      Source: I'm a Texan who actually paid attention in history class.
      Also, if you want a battle where the Texan army actually beat Mexico, try San Jacinto, the battle of the Alamo was a sad excuse for a battle.

      • Cynical or not

        I also paid attention in history class. There were 5 battles in the Texas Revolution. Two of them where at the Alamo. The first one was a landslide victory for the Texan troops. The second one was the massacre where the Texans where outnumbered by some huge margin. The only other Mexican victory in that war was the massacre of Goliad, which played out similar to the second Alamo battle. Texas won 3 of the 5 battles, ultimately winning the war at the battle of San Jacinto.

        I also know that the war was backed by the US, which is why people like David Crocket lost their lives fighting for what would become the Republic of Texas. Texas also tripled in size extending their borders far South, West and North.

        I could be wrong on some of these sense Texas History was like, 12 years ago or something, but I am pretty sure most of this is spot on. Thanks for playing.
