I mean the judge takes a look at the guy and he goes, TEN YEARS! just like that

My husband has lots of tattoos and a stupid haircut and a job, he's also never been to prison. I, on the other hand, have spent one night in prison and like to wear sunglasses indoors 8)

You too? I thought I was the only one likes to wear sunglasses indoors. I tried wearing them in the grocery store but the lighting is too dim and I just can't see. There is a real danger I could buy a bunch of mangos and think they are avocados. :clown:

As for tats and haircut and whatnot... I am trying to capture what these guys look like. We are talking photos posted on a FB group to attract women (and/or other?). I don't think I conveyed that yet. Your boyfriend, may not look like these guys.

-shirtless (optional) and beefy (always), like hunkalicious for ya, yeah good right? Almost makes me think, well maybe the wimmins would like this, except for the shirtless ones, apparently wimmins object to shirtless?
-not smiling, but mean-looking, like you best have a taste for fist if you invite them over
-gun in hand or somewhere in the picture
-sunglasses, optional
-they are sitting on a Harley-Davidson sometimes
-they have a funky hairstyle, like if black, there are tentacles spreading out in different directions and may be tinted green, orange or purple. If white they have not heard about this invention called the comb. Or else they are bald because in prison, you don't want any hair that a rapist can pull to drag you down.
-some of them have pictures that show them with a bottle of spray paint and graffiti on a wall saying "F- 12" which means F- Da Police.

o.k. hopefully that conveys the general impression accurately and does not touch upon types like you or your boyfriend but what do I know, maybe you are a tough gang banger going to knock some sense into your cellmate one day.

Oh hell no ha ha ha! We do the punk and psychobilly thing, definitely not the "gangsta" thing. I only spent one night in a cell for having a meltdown at a restaurant, it seems fifteen year old autistics are considered very dangerous in the US :mrgreen:

Ah, cool.
15 was the toughest year for me too. My parents nearly put me in military school. :lol:

Cool to me is being yourself.
I met an Aussie in China who refused to wear shoes. That's cool. He didn't do it to be cool, he just disliked wearing shoes.
When I was a punk rocker I never bought the uniform of studded leather jackets and mohawk, I opted for a hippie style. I like to think that was cool of me. And I got respect.
I think the typical "cool" attributes, like sunglasses, jeans jackets, and whatnot are harder to be cool in, you really have to wear them like it's natural, not just put them on.
