    They've been together for 9 years. I've known him since he was a smart-ass 17 year old. It's a little late for sucking up. He really is charged up about analog photography.

    I'm surprised to hear that from an American.

    If he wasn't an American, he wouldn't have used "yards".

    Is "Bad Ass Coffee" that stuff the critters eat and crap out?
    Means you have very boring friends.

    Oh yeah, baby, you found it. Here's my definition. I don't consider myself to meet this definition, but there are people in the karate club where I train who think I do. There aren't too many 55 year olds who can live up to this.

    badass
    The badass is an uncommon man of supreme style. He does what he wants, when he wants, where he wants. You won't find him on facebook, myspace, msn et cetera because he is probably out being cool somewhere. He might be on a motorcycle, but it's probably not a Harley or a crotch rocket because he won't spend that much money to be accepted. Traditionally, he will smoke, but it's not necessary at all. He feels no obligation whatsoever to justify his beliefs, values, convictions, morals et cetera with anyone. He likes his music because it sounds cool to him. You won't find him if you look for him because there is no sure way to identify him. One does not think that he is badass; he KNOWS it and that's that. Alternatively, a badass is the complete opposite of a douchebag.

    Likely to be found in a popular pub taking your money on the pool table then buying you a beer with it, you won't identify him by his clothing because there is no badass uniform. He's probably not sporting the latest fad, he's not wearing $200 jeans, and he doesn't have frosted hair. He's always up for a challenge, he'll probably succeed and he seems to be good at everything. But at the same time, the badass attitude is like: "ok well I don't give a shit".

    Unless he was English.
