    Very perceptive. Yes. The rules are there. They are always there...like the sun is always in the sky. The rules are ingrained in us so well as children, that by the time we enter our teens, we are sick and tired of them and want to rebel. Rebelling is fun! It makes you feel alive and independent. But even rebelling becomes rather boring and supremely selfish after a while.

    I suppose that it's kind of hard to break the rules that, in my mind, I consider as "rules", such as gravity, thermodynamics, geometry, etc. "human" rules aren't really real, it's just our imagination creating them, so they can easily be disregarded when the situation calls for it.

    I'd definitely think that if somebody were able to defy them he'd be super cool.

    Coolness as a whole can be defined by "not caring what others say/think". So, in a sense, Breaking Rules is the epitome of coolness, really.

    I think that certain rules can be viewed as glorified when broken. Look at street racing for an example. People already finding the thrill of racing cool, mixed with the pain in the ass of going to a track, you have a potentially dangerous combination. Mix that with media showing it as the coolest thing possible, marketing it to younger people, etc..

    I don't think anyone thinks that jaywalking is the rockingest rockin to ever rock. (Uber.. this is NOT a cue to say "Jaywalking rocks." You either, Mr. Flak! ) I think the rules that are labeled as cool generally have to do with things like drugs, underage drinking, traffic and car laws, and even stealing.. these are generally things seen as awesome in younger ages.

    It's my impression that once you get older, you don't view whatever you do as "cool", if you break a law it's just an act, necessary or otherwise, and if there's no consequence than yay.

    Kyuuei, could you explain that again? I'm not sure I get what you mean.

    Sometimes, rules don't make any sense and they ought to be broken. For example, in Buffalo, New York, it is against the rules for bus drivers to inform other bus drivers that they are running late and to please wait to pick up passengers. Sometimes, because bus drivers are so eager to follow the rules, passengers end up out in the cold for up to an hour waiting for their connecting bus. And there are times when they reach the corner where they have to wait, just to see the connecting bus go through the light and go bye bye.
    How annoying is that... just because of mindless rule-following.
