    Jake75 ak1134 In bike racing, we called people like this Freds and Bettys (Flintstones).  These people had a saying, "If you can't be fast, look fast" and they spent a huge amount of money looking fast but were just pack fill at the races.  Most of them had better equipment than the sponsored pros who they couldn't even keep in site.  It looks like it has become popular with the spoiled rich kids to do the same thing with the military crowd, especially SOF.  It looks like the military crowd has got the cycling Freds and Bettys and they should have a saying, "If you can't be good, look good."  No wonder the military crowd is having so much trouble with trolls, it is popular among the Freds and Bettys.  What pathetic people.

    Jake75 ak1134 Indeed! In my mind that equates to being the best dressed wall flower at the prom. You may be in Armani... but you still ain't getting laid.
