I'm Glad I Learned How To Sew

Newish Eddie Bauer jeans, bought in April, worn around mainly in Venezuela, washed no more than ten-eleven times, belt loop broke away. The pockets are fraying. These are the first jeans I've bought in over a decade, I'm usually dress casual for daily wear. Were jeans a lot stronger twenty years ago or am I wearing Nostalgia Goggles?

I ended up using some stiff quilting edging, sewed an inside patch and attached the loop to the patch.

Life Cycle of a Pure Roleplay Area

Yay! Started!
Have fun for awhile, then some joker shows up wanting to be Spiderman.
Drama ensues. Spiderman gets banned after a loud scream fest on general chat.
List of sim rules turns into a five page legal document.
Play continues, 2-3 regulars stop coming as much, people suggest less for fear of being shot down.
Spiderman comes back with an alt, this time wants to be Batman.
Rules turns into a twenty page legal document.
5-6 players remain.
Recruitment drive begins, someone sets the sim 'group only'.
Week later, someone discovers parcel is group only, changes it back but ups up a 3000m high skybox with notecard/LM giver by the TP down node.
Sim languishes mostly empty for about six months.
Sim owner's wife discovers the credit card statements.
