america thanks you

why doesn’t every man do this?

still my favorite picture on tumblr

This man is a fucking hero

I’m sorry I don’t understand how those tight ass shorts are more attractive than cargo shorts? lol okay.

they just mad that they have to now hold water bottles instead of in their cargo pockets

Cargo shorts are a good thing .

Cargo shorts are a way of life. 

People complain about the size of women’s pockets on their pants and hate on cargo shorts.
Can’t please the Greeks nor the Trojans.

How can people hate pockets. I don’t get it.

There’s no good reason for hating cargo shorts to the degree people do. Frankly, very very few people actually care enough to hate it actively- for the rest it’s a fad of opinion that people latch onto to appear because they saw other people doing it, with no real good reason for themselves as to why they don’t like cargo shorts.
An opinion, I’m assuming by looking at OP, that started with some average upper class snob who dresses in boat shoes, chubbies, and brightly colored polos everywhere they go, as if every destination is a wine mixer at someone’s country club where no ones balls have dropped yet.
You’ll have to excuse some of us if we prefer functionality over flashing our upper thighs and lower scrotum at people everytime we do something that requires a greater degree of leg movement than a brisk walk.

U.S. Imprisonment Rate Per 100,000 Residents, 1978-2012

The US incarcerates more people per capita than any other nation in the world: Approximately 1 in 100 adults or more than 2.2 million people are behind bars in the US, according to the Pew Center on the States. In addition, another 4.6 million (or a total of almost 7 million) people live under some form of correctional supervision. 
Mass incarceration is not a result of higher crime rates: The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world not because it has higher crime rates, but because it imprisons more types of criminal offenders, including non-violent and drug offenders, and keeps them in prison longer. With the exception of homicide, US crime rates are comparable to other European countries with much lower incarceration rates. 
Mass incarceration disproportionately impacts US racial minorities: Mass incarceration has had a devastating effect on blacks and Hispanics in the US. African Americans are six times more likely to be incarcerated than a white person and non-white Latinos are almost three times more likely to be incarcerated, according to the Pew Center on the States. 
Incarceration hits hardest at young black and Latino men without high school education. An astounding 11 percent of black men, aged between 20 and 34, are behind bars. Much of the racial disparity is a result of the US’ war on drugs - started by President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. By 1988, blacks were arrested on drug charges at five times the rate of whites. By 1996, the rate of drug admissions to state prison for black men was 13 times greater than the rate for white men. This is despite the fact that African Americans use drugs at roughly the same rate as white Americans. 
Mass incarceration is expensive: Imprisoning people is not cheap. The average cost of housing an inmate is approximately $20,000 to $30,000 per year. This price tag comes at the direct expense of public money that could be spent on public education, medical care and public assistance. And it is one reason why so many states face fiscal crises today.

Okay, not to dispute that this is wrong and the such, but since this is based on a number and not a percent, then doesn’t it make sense that as the population in the USA grows, so does the number of criminals thus the number in the jails?

Population increase doesn’t take into account the fact that the US represents 5% of the world’s population and 25% of the world’s prisoners. It’s the highest known incarceration rate in the world, surpassing China, North Korea, and Russia.
~750 prisoners per 100,000 people is a massive number.

In prison forever: Gitmo detainees might not see freedom even after Afghan War ends
The United States military plans to end its combat role in Afghanistan later this year and close the chapter on America’s longest-running war, but the Afghan men being held at the US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay aren’t expected to see any changes.
Although the White House has long insisted that it will adhere to a December 2014 deadline to withdraw most of its troops after more than a decade of war, government officials past and current say the Guantanamo Bay detainees who call Afghanistan home likely won’t be returning anytime soon.
