It's a thing in poverty stricken cultures where the appearance of wealth is of utmost importance, so several hundred dollar "rare" shoes that you've never worn become a high prize in terms of social wealth and standing.

lol that only "poverty stricken cultures" are conspicuous consumers

In my country, there's an obscene wealth gap where a small minority of the population horde the majority of the wealth, and the rest of the culture serves to cater to their needs and whims which are often obscene displays of conspicuous consumption.

It is still very weird to me that like, the cheap hi tecs I got given as a kid are apparently high fashion for some people.

And that apparently the progression in trainer design has just meant more weird loving blobs of plastic glued on.

By 2050 people are gonna be walking around in giant platform trainers composed entirely out of the soles from every pair of trainers since the mid 90's.

When are ones that light up when you walk coming back into fashion?

I think lightup sneakers have already come and gone multiple times throughout the 2000s-2010s old man.

I expect the next round to take after the current car door logo projector trend and the Nike swish is gonna be a light that projects the word nike next to your foot on every step.

I love how you can still see the glue where the sole meets the rest ("body"?) of the shoe.... on a loving official website product shot.

It's almost like those spam emails with deliberate typos, so they can pinpoint the real fish.

I'm sure there's a clip out there of The Bern on Desus & Mero, where they're trying to explain shoe culture to him. Eventually he just asks something like "They cost how much? And it's just for what... bragging?", and then gives them the frowning of a lifetime.

I might not be understanding how x rays work because wouldn't pointing one longitudinally through a human produce an unreadable image?

Yeah, there's enough bones in the way it'd be closer to a rorshach test than anything useful.

I think they put the film on the outside of the patient at particular angles, like how you have to bite down for one of the little film plates when the dentist zaps you.

Sure, but like, I'm not sure where you put the plate on any of those people unless you make them eat it.

Or does the machine whip past your rear end real fast like in Wanted so it curves the x rays.

There's no way to position the film and fire an x-ray up someone's b-hole and not have it blocked by a ton of bones.

It looks more like a periscope so you can investigate the area without risking pink eye from an ill-timed fart.

Hey, Adora.



It says "tubehead" which is typically associated with x-ray equipment, but unless the tubehead is inside of that structure (rather than part of the structure itself) and you can move it around to different angles I don't see how it could be used for x-rays. But it's possible! Without reading anything about it I thought it was some kind of extremely elaborate giant borescope

They gotta be careful pulling it out or they risk giving the patient a pink sock.

Perhaps it is for radiotherapy, so just blasting your rear end with x rays.
