Quote LA Guy, what was the point of this post? Â LA is not so violent as people make it out to be. Â I lived in LA for a long time, and had no problems. Â Well, I take that back, I had some stomach problems because there was this great barbeque place which I loved, and ate at frequently, and it always gave me heartburn and indigestion. Â But it was SO good I'd eat there all the time. I really have to find that place again. Â Anyway... why go off on some kid like that? Â Even if he is full of sh*t, which he may or may not be, what is the point of saying that he'd get hurt in Los Angeles or Boston? Â That is just silly. Â And what afterhours club in Inglewood are you referring to?
I don't recall immediately the name of the specific afterhours I was thinking about but was in a light colored pillbox bunker type of building. Â Does that help you any? Â I figure I'd take him to the Dragonfly beforehand (he'd probably get in with a proper fake ID), where I got the info from about the afterhours in the first place. Â South Boston clubs I'm not particularly familiar with, but I know loads of native Irish Bostonians who'd be more than happy to help educate this pr**k. No, LA is not that dangerous, although there are some sketchy areas that you wouldn't immediately think of, El Monte, for example, with its larger than fair share of skanky strip clubs and the accompanying sketchiness. My point was that he would learn a little more humility and stop calling honest people butt ugly and poor, if he was taken out of his little dream world for a while. Â My idea maybe wasn't the best one. Â Maybe globetrotter could persuade him to join the Israeli army for, say, a week?
actually that is the responsiblity of the fool paying his bills.if they want to raise him right, they should take away his watches and make him work summers in construction or some such work where he will have a chance to learn from real people a little bit about the real world. it will make him much happier as an adult.
People from families like ours do not work for people.[/quote] I have some cousins. their great great grandfather founded a food brand that pretty much every american knows (alas, the money comes from the other side of the family). they are very well to do, as in having matisses and modgilianis on the wall of their family house, and in having a yaht with a crew big enough to take more than 10 guests across the atlantic. to me, that is as rich as I care about. my cousins grandparents worked their whole lives, every day, as doctors. they didn't have to. my cousins parents worked every day, even though they didn't have to. my cousins work every day, even though they don't have to. they have been to some fo the best schools in the US, and they might not be either rocket scientists or heros, but they see nothing wrong with work. by the way, I had the pleasure of working with the Ambanis (possibly a name you know) a little, those gentlemen also come into work every day. true, they work for themselves, but they didn't always.
