I can tell you that it's not particularly effective.

I don't have massive thighs but they are much bigger relative to my lower legs
so it's hard to get that true straight fit
which is why the slim straight works out pretty well
fits up top and tapers down enough

I just got a pair of khakis from the Gap
called the "lived in khaki" slim fit
pretty much fits me perfectly
but I am not willing to pay $40+ for a pair of khakis from the Gap ... such a dilemma #firstworldproblems

I pretty much wear the latest stuff that came out of the washing machine
so I wear the same stuff over and over
until I somehow end up going through my closet and dig something out ... and maybe keep wearing that over and over again

so not having a cd-rom drive on the new computer is just a little annoying since i'm trying to install a bunch of software ... and sometimes it take a while to find the installer online
like for canon software ... I only see the updaters not installer so it won't work for me right now

you are so disciplined
way back when i was in college... senior spring
i was days away from graduation ... or NOT graduating if i didn't finish all my stuff i had to do
i was playing counterstrike back then
and i'd log onto my regular server that i played on
and the other guys asked me if i was done with school
i told them i had 13 papers to write and such ... and they turned on team kill and killed me and told me to leave
so i'd come back after i finished a paper and play for 30 mins to an hour and then go back to work
ahhh those were the days

so I put the CD-rom in my old laptop and copied all the file to a folder
then copied the folder to my external drive
then transferred the install file from the external drive to my new laptop
it's working

it's mostly because I don't have a steering wheel and that makes a huge difference for the game...

Compared to his Rolex, an Omega is peanuts.
I take care of my stuff...that cheap watch lasted me 14 years, so this will be my "forever" watch.
