I went to WalMart and bought one of those boxes with a hinged lid and clasps for like $15. It's huge, and rigid enough that I don't worry about things hitting the side of the box and damaging the contents.
I decided a paintball gearbag wasn't worth the cost. It's up to you whether or not it's worth the coughinflatedcough price.
By the same token, we could also say the stereotypical dad that gets no respect from "Mom" and is by all measures an idiot is also the norm. I see far more of that on TV than a competent father with a wife that is reasonable. Does the stereotype exist in real life? Most definitely. Is it the norm as well?
There's a reason why expressions like these are around. They are popular among the majority. The same majority in which a generation is often judged and caricaturized.
Yes, there are decent people, but they are the minority and the minority is bound to be overlooked and often forgotten unless they are able to make a stand against the majority.
I'll say this is patently false. It's a term used by a particular subculture. I can say I don't know a single person that will (seriously) use "swag", "yolo," or any of several other irritation raising terms.
