Tight Fit

It wasn't that long ago when tight jeans were in style. I'm talking jeans worn as tight as possible. Like most teens, Megan kept up with the latest fashion trends. As soon as 15 year-old Megan could afford some new jeans she rushed out and bought a pair.

On Monday morning before school she put on her new jeans. To make them even tighter she filled the tub with water and got in with her jeans on. As soon as she was soaked she got out and waited for the jeans to dry.

Unfortunately for Megan, when the jeans started drying they became unbearably uncomfortable. They were already tight to begin with and as soon as they completely dried things became painful. Megan's legs started to go numb and she couldn't even walk. She tried getting out of the jeans, but it hurt too much and they were too tight. Lying on her bed Megan yelled for her parents who immediately ran into her room.

The end result was a trip to the hospital where doctors cut off her jeans. Megan had lost circulation in her legs but once the jeans were cut off she was fine. Megan's not the only victim of tight jeans. Paramedics have had to cut off a few pairs of jeans from lots of females, not just teenagers, who have managed to squeeze themselves into jeans that were a little too tight.

Believe it or not? Take our poll and see what others think.

Did you chuckle at the tourist in last weeks story, A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, when the kangaroo ran off with his jacket? Kangaroos have been hit by both locals and tourists but I don't know if any have ran off with someone's jacket.

Here are last weeks poll results:

Believe It or Not?

Yes: 75 percent
No: 16 percent
I don't know: 8 percent

    Believe it or Not?

    • I think that could totally happen.
    • There's no way jeans could be that tight.
    • I really don't know, I hope not!

Life having intrinsic value doesn't mean that a person's value can not increase or stagnate based upon their actions and character. Mass murderers, for example, are viewed as having less value (either to you or I, or society in general, but either way we perceive them differently) than an ordinary law-abiding citizen. In a similar way, a man has greater worth than a woman in certain situations, and a woman greater worth than a man in certain situations. It's not necessarily strictly based upon being a man or woman either, it's just what their general behavior is viewed as: for example, women are generally held to be more empathetic than men, therefore more people prefer to open their heart up to women because they believe they will be given a more sensitive response. Short of attaining ego death, you're always going to value people differently. It's very nice to say from an abstract, intellectual standpoint that all people are equal, but even in solely your own life you know this isn't how you actually look at things, unless you really are prepared to tell me that the worth of your parents or siblings or close friends or distant friends are not worth more to you than a stranger on the street. I just want to point out in bold that I'm making a distinction between intellectual (or hypothetical/theoretical) understanding of people being equal, either in general or between men and women, and the actual application of trying to apply that principle. It likely leads us to view the two as more equal than if we didn't hold the intellectual view that they're equal, but nonetheless there is always going to be a hint of bias located somewhere. One last thing just for any additional clarity it might provide, because I recognize I might be getting vague here: "Jolly-Rancher206" wrote:I'm saying at bottom one s//x does not have more value than another. I am saying that all people have different values, be they man or woman, but in many situations one is preferable to the other and therefore their value as you perceive it is greater at that time (context).

    Well, go to his website and there is a picture of a new animatronic: Baby. But there is more than one animatronic, so why would he say one? :/

A favorite pet dying is not as tragic as a child starving in Africa.    I get it now. You have the iq level of a fish.  Yes. I agree 100%. A favorite pet dying is not as tragic as a child starving in Africa. But that has no bearing on how a child should feel if their pet dies, was my point.

Only about. You might be able to delude yourself into thinking the two have the exact same worth but that will never actually happen due to unconscious biases, nor does the principle translate into the real-world very well where people are not made of the same stuff and the worth of a person is based upon context and character. Hold up. Yeah people are biased and some may see one s//x as better than the other. And yes people don't live that way in the real-world. I'm saying at bottom one s//x does not have more value than another. One human being doesn't have more value than another. I don't believe someone's character or personality changes that. I can think someone is a bad person, does bad things, but still affirm they have as much worth as a person as I do. If one believes life has intrinsic value in the first place (can't be proven, touched measured, just is) then how can you go about distinguishing the amount of value someone has?
