    or III... or IV... I've lost count. Plus Roman numerals... my lord. :D

    OK, so I'm in this metal video for my friends project. I wrote the song, he sang it (quite bad) but this is another story all together. Regardless, I bought a long black haired wig. Looks quite metal I might add.

    We were going Bowling, unfortunatly, the Rednecks feel that the bowling alley is their sanctuary from us college kids. So, I decided it would be a good idea to wear my wig with a winter hat. I looked like a giant stoner, it was quite amusing.

    We get their, and we are getting the usual looks of "what the hell are college kids doing here." We bowled for two games, where I would vary between wig and no wig. Just to convice them that we are crazy college kids up to no good. Third game, a marine guy comes up to me and I'm wearing the wig.

    He says, "Is that really your hair." And I said, "Yes, it is." Pause for 5 seconds and take it off. He said, "Good, because I was worried about you... REALLY WORRIED." All bad ass and marine like. Then, like a coward, he took off. His friends were egging him on to say that to me all night, so he waited until the very end to ask me. And let me tell ya, it was clever.

    I was a little pissed, my friends were very pissed. I wanted to chill, my friends wanted to kick his ass. So we end up following him outside. He runs to his truck and drives away quite fast. I'm glad to think a guy like that is defending our country. At this point, I'd like to say:

    People ask me everywhere
    "Is that really all your hair?"
    I just tell `em, "If it ain't
    Then it sure don't mean
    That now I can't"

    I just don't believe it's fair
    To judge a girl by the length of her hair

    Take two words like "hip" and "square"
    The truth will shine and not your hair
    Even the blind can almost see
    What's outside you and inside me

    Down or high, truth or lie
    A weak girl's laugh can be
    A strong girl's cry

    Black or blond or nappy or fair -
    You can't judge nobody by hair
    If I thought that you would care
    I'd wear a wig up under my hair

    Down or high, truth or lie
    A weak girl's laugh can be
    A strong girl's cry

    I'm getting sick of Rednecks.

    you sure he was a U.S. Marine ?
    be very careful when messing with an all out , fully trained Marine .

    maybe he was just some short haired guy , not really a harda$$ at all ... looks can be very decieving .
    sounds to me like your friends are the ones with the attitude problem , they wanted to chase him and kick his a$$ after all ... jmo ... be cool

    you guys go into a bowling alley with the intention of making people around you uncomfortable, and then your friends wanted to beat someone up over asking you about your wig? sounds like your friends are the ones with the problem, not the rednecks.

    I fought and wrecked more than one Marine, but I'm big and mostly numb. The thing about Marines; they are all different, just like any other group. As an organization, I have great respect for them, but there are always a few bad apples, the Marines are no exception.


    Matt, I sort of see where your going with that, but chasing someone out to their car, (or following them in an intimidating fashion) is never cool. Also, he might have shot you.

    I'm with you Matt - Fight the Power! Don't let the man get you down....

    nah just kidding....you acted like a tool...you're lucky you still have your arms attached! :D
  13. I can't think of a moral for this story other than, "Don't go to the bowling alley."

    Are you sure the guy was starting trouble and not just genuinely curious about your whig?
  14. It helps to have crooked cop friends. But those are easily acquired w/ blow and hookers.
