When lots of Americans picture Japan, they're picturing Tokyo one big Blade Runner esque city. But take the subway out of the city, past the endless suburbs and there's a Japanese heartland just as rough and tumble as the deepest parts of the South. There are even Japanese truckers. But unlike American truckers, who spend their off hours doing meth and hiring inexpensive prostitutes, Japanese truckers spend their free time and thousands of their yen turning their trucks into something out of an extremely flamboyant, musical version of The Road Warrior. Named for the English word "gal," gyaru are young girls who dye their hair sickly shades of silver and blonde, get fakey tans and slather the makeup on thicker than Bugs Bunny in drag. They can be found hanging out on street corners in almost every major city, but the movement was born (like almost every freaky Japanese style) in the ultra hip Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo. There are all sorts of subgroups of gyaru, and each successive generation gets weirder than the last. First came the kogyaru, high school girls who wore sexualized versions of their school uniforms (supershort skirts and incredibly saggy socks) and dyed their hair blond. Once that style peaked, some girls started to go off the rails. Known as ganguro, they slathered dark makeup on their faces, painted their lips white and attached shiny stickers to their faces. On the Internet at least, the word "lolita" conjures up images of sweaty middle aged dudes who hang around schoolyards and get their hard drives confiscated by the FBI. But in Japan, lolita refers to another bizarre subculture. Unlike their gyaru contemporaries, who cake on the makeup and bare as much skin as legally possible, lolita's dress up in clothes so modest, Queen Victoria would tell them to loosen up a little. Clad in petticoats, high collared dresses, bonnets and wielding fluffy parasols, they walk the Bladerunner streets of Tokyo looking like graduates of The Tim Burton School for Girls. There are all kinds of lolita's, each with their own variation on the theme, but they all share a love of women's fashions that died out before their grandmothers were born. And these aren't just outfits they wear to special clubs or garden parties. You can see grown women in these full Victorian doll costumes on trains, in book stores and wolfing down cheeseburgers at McDonald's. Why, you may ask? It has something to do with the rejection of male created beauty standards and sexualized dress. Yes. In Japan, to express their rejection of oppressive cultural stereotypes and proclaim their independence, women dress like creepy school girls from 200 years ago. That sounds about right. 136027 035 Air Jordan V Oreo Black Cool Grey White ,599873 602 Jordan 1 Fire Red Retro 89 653996 840 Men Size Nike KD7 35K Degrees 2014 378037 010 Air Jordan 11 Bred Black Varsity Red Nike Air Foamposite One Air Jordan 10 Bulls Over Broadway 308497 103 Nike Air Jordan 4 White Cement 2012 Air Jordan Winterized 6 Rings Khaki Imperial Blue Olive Khaki 528895 023 Women Size Air Jordan 11 Retro Low Infrared 23 638471 007 Air Jordan 1 Retro KO High Sport Blue The Bible is the perfect Word of God. It is filled with wonderful and not so wonderful people who encountered a lot of different situations. And although the Bible is perfect, I think God might have left out a few quotes here and there. For example, don't you think Jonah could have easily said, "Being in that whale sure was stinky!" or can't you just hear Zaccheus say, "Climbing up sycamore trees is lots of fun especially when you're short like me." I think it's highly probable such sentences escaped from these Bible characters' mouths. Why not throw some of the following "quotes" to your kids and see whether or not they can guess who was the famous Bible person who said it.

One year later, the Dassler shoes had the most wonderful appearance in Berlin Olympic Games, when Jesse owens, the American man track and field athlete, in a pair of Dassler shoes running on the runway. The hero won seven gold medals and 5 bronze medals. In 1948, the brothers sharpened their conflicts when the factory has expanded largely. The result is that they broken up the factory. The old brother Rudolf Dassler established PUMA brand, and his younger brother built ADIDAS. In that year, the first pair of PUMA football shoes were born. After four years of development, to 1952, PUMA gained a remarkable reputation all around the world. In the 1958 World Cup in Swenden, the Brazilian football team and the Swedish football team fight for the champion wearing PUMA football boots. The design of 'runway' on vamp came up. In 1962, the Brazilian team won the World Cup once again. Pele and the other players of Brazilian team worn PUMA football shoes. In 1967, the NO.1 tradmark came into the world. It was the famous puma logo that designed by the German famous cartoon painter Lutz Backs. The Puma Logo is still used today with little modifications.
