Rolling up one pant leg

After months of curiosity, I sorta figured out why some people roll up one pant leg. I consider myself pretty practical, so this concept of rolling up one pant leg always had me pondering. Like, why roll up one pant leg? Why not roll them both up? Perhaps it also has to do with me always needing things to remain equally balanced.

For bikers, they roll up their right pant leg so that it doesn’t get caught on the chain. It makes perfect sense doesn’t it?  Well thankfully, of all the years I’ve ever ridden a bike, I’ve never had an issue with my jeans getting caught on the chain. Doesn’t that seem awfully dangerous?! Do THAT many people get their pants stuck on the chain? Most the bicyclist I see around campus wear tight jeans anyway…so what’s up with this one pant roll up ordeal?

But yes, for the sake of being practical, people roll up one pant leg to avoid dangerous bike accidents and ripped jeans. As for others, it’s a fashion statement? I guess I just don’t have that knack for fashion.

I bet you’re thinking…why the heck did I read this huh? haha… it’s been on my mind for awhile!

  3. I should show you the bottom of my pants… All my pants are torn only on the right leg because it *always* gets caught in the chain when I ride. Usually I’ll tuck my pants into my socks to avoid it but if/when I forget… my pants get torn.

  4. Bboys (breakdancers) sometimes roll one pant leg up and tie it with a bandana.

  8. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell

  9. Like in the Oasis-Poker, the dealer can have “no game”.
    If you are wondering-how to get my ex girlfriend back from a
    new boyfriend. This is French cuisine at its finest, served
    in a dining room that can only be described as decadent.

    Forex Magnates upon inquiry.
