Gps not working?
Just dropping this off here as it made me laugh. http://www.holdingournosesforhillary.com
• greasy pizzaNo, but we did do hamburgers, IIRC.• no dancing in barsOh, please. This is SF.• ratsYes, lots. Lefty has turned them into a hobby.• manhattan = giant business park/food courtThere was some complaining about food trucks. No one complains about Manhattan. Almost everyone except for Manton and Lefty are hipsters and live in Brooklyn. Manton lives in Connecticut or someplace like that and Lefty is so happy not to be in SanFo that he hardly complains at all...
This summer, there is very little of the complaining everyone typically does about the heat, getting caught in torrential rain storms, getting stuck on miserably hot & humid subway platforms etc.. I miss it. As I typically suffer none of that, it gave me a certain amount of schadenfreude.
Yes, I was totally wondering about grain runout the whole time.Actually, I'm kidding. I had to google it to find out what it was. The first hit was on the Ukulele forums.
Sounds like the least funkiest funk group of all time.And the Four Seasons prices seem insane. 12K for ashtrays? The Campbell Apartment guy should have an auction. If he flogged off some of his swizzle sticks, maybe he could afford to stay.
My understanding is that one of the points of French polishing is that, while it is incredibly time-consuming to do initially, it is also incredibly easy to repair. Is that correct?

Well, I don't want to get all current eventsy here, but I guess the first question is, do public operators have all that much of an incentive to maintain and improve facilities? From country to country, some are better, some are worse. I understand the Taipei one is quite nice and it is government run. But publicly-run metros all too often end up in a nasty intersection between rent seeking and political imperative all overseen by a stultifying bureaucracy.I think one of...
The dirty little secret that public transport agencies don't want you to know is that the best public transportation in the world isn't public.MTR, a publicly traded company, runs the Hong Kong Metro which is clean, efficient and convenient. HK metro cards can even be used as payment cards for all sorts of small transactions.(I think the Taipei metro has a similar deal.) The MTR is a private company that is in the business of operating metros.It also operates the Stockholm...
