    Come to think of it, there are actually a lot of things I might consider acceptable if you were bringing me Rum.

    I allow for listening to podcasts (edit: or music) while on cardio. There are some interesting studies going on that seem to say it's easier to pick up a foreign language if you combine the learning with exercise. It's too soon to tell if it's true, but I have my Dutch learning pod cast on during cardio. I ignore any texts or emails that come in during that time.

    What's wrong with female penguins wearing sequins? You assume too much. :p

    A few years ago-a guy right next to me on the treadmill let the entire gym know how he felt about his I-phone battery going dead on him. It's a wonder that he could continue his workout the way he was yelling!!

    I'm sure it was a great experience for everyone.

    Wearing a ball cap backwards lowers one's IQ twenty points...unless you are a catcher.

    Fewer and fewer catchers wear a cap at all while behind the plate. They are using the new style masks now.

    Listening I understand. I listen to music sometimes at the gym, it’s the texting, reading and playing games basically using the equip,met like a desk or sofa.

    Or a photographer; the brim can get in the way, when you are taking a picture.

    The ones that drive me truly postal are the (typically) women in the most expensive yoga gear on cardio having a loud and often rather personal conversation with their BFF on the phone.

    You can't understand why you can't lose any weight? Well... I have a few ideas... like if you can carry on a conversation while doing cardio, you're doing it wrong.

    A few catchers wear glasses. How can they manage to keep their glasses on when they flip their mask off for a foul ball, wild pitch, etc...?

    Not a trend for some, but a serious religion. Looks very silly on those who simply appropriate for fashion.

    I'll try:

    "Dreadlocks... if you're not an actual religious follower of Emperor Hailie Selassie, ruler of all, and King of the Universe. Jah! Rasta Fari."

    For most of african negroid descent, creating dreadlocks isn't difficult. It's like a strange braid.

    For the 'white boys' I've seen do it, one explained it to me that you have to braid the hair, then not wash it for an extended period of time. In other words, yes, you have to be filthy.

    Edit - why do they do dreadlocks when Haile Selassie had short hair?

    Samson and Delilah is the source. Dreadlocks are neither filthy nor silly when cared for properly, and are more identity than fashion statement for some.

    I simply meant that for someone with straight hair to get them, that's how it was explained to me by someone who actually wore them.

    I guess they either don't worry about it, or they wear these:
