I learned a new word. Joggers
Posted by: vision63
Date: May 21, 2022 12:18PM
A guy said he liked my joggers. I said "my shoes?" He said, "No, your pants." Just some thin Adidas sweatpants.

I have a whole list of words that I dislike (Umami, Vegan, Empath etc.), I'm not sure if I'm gonna add this to it. I don't know the full meaning of it, nor will I research it. I'm trying to embrace aging with the proper dismissal of that which annoys me for petty reasons.

Happy May 21st!

My friend from Cali used to call sneakers, running shoes. What's up with that?

I pride myself on being a vegan empath who enjoys the taste of umami while wearing joggers, my man.

There definitely regional takes on these things. It's collapsing though.

My cousins in the East (NY/NJ) call all athletic shoes "sneakers." We on the West Coast, never, ever called any athletic shoe sneakers. We called them all "Tennis Shoes" regardless of the purpose of the shoe.

We called Converse (Chuck Taylor) "Stars" or "All-Stars), most Stars. Now everybody calls them "Chucks." Even my friends that used to call them Stars, have caved into calling them Chucks.

When Crack Cocaine became a thing (after Freebasing), the term "Crack" was just an Eastern term. In the West, they called them "Rocks." The East Coast expression took over since that's were national media was based.

In the Chicago area, all brands and flavors of soda pop were referred to as a “Coke.”

Edit: And a baseball glove was always called a “mitt,” whether it was a glove for a catcher, infielder or outfielder.

We called them all "Tennis Shoes" regardless of the purpose of the shoe.

My friends and I called them that too when I was a young 'un! Funny how you called them that two thousand miles away.

And, here in Detroit, and most of MI, we call soda "pop". Everyone knows where I'm from when I ask for pop...

yeah, I thought that the midwest was "pop" territory and the "coke" thing was from the south.

I think, although I'm open to being corrected, that "sweatpants" has come to mean the pants that have a loose cuff -- and "joggers" are the pants that have the cuff with elastic that grips your leg, although not necessarily tightly. And the pants that had elastic but the pantslegs were long and loose enough to flop down and obscure the cuff seem to be obsolete.

The ones I have use a zipper which does grip your calf to your ankle. I'm wearing Joggers, though my neighbor guy says he calls them soccer pants.

...and before that (i.e. when I lived there) they were "plimsolls" (the name comes from the plimsoll line that is painted at the waterline of a ship because plimsolls generally had a white line painted around their perimeter).



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Agreed. While I refer to all of these things as sweatpants myself, I think that term conjures notions of baggy, heavy, unflattering cotton loungewear. " Joggers" sounds a bit more stylish and tailored...and more marketable

And it wasn’t a “soda” unless it had ice cream in it.

In my parts, we call them "tennies" I guess from Tennis Shoes.

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater
