    Is Brooklyn meant to be that rough? I feel sorry for you.

    When things are really getting rough, I reach my horsehide rider jacket and my thick 23oz denim.

    Throw in the Interceptor, and you have the ultimate in commuter wear.

    Thinking about it, I'm less concerned about what I'll be wearing and more about my quality of life. If you need me, I'll be in a bunker stocked with shampoo and razors for the wimmenz of the post-apocalypse. So, hopefully, I'll spend my time naked.

    I try my best to stay out of NYC if it's at all possible...

    it's bad enough out here in the sticks.

    For Schenectady, I am sure the incident was a media-worthy event.

    I like to refer to Steven Pinker's The Better Angels of Our Nature when talk turns to Mad Max-ian end-of-the-world scenarios.

    That said, I'd like to be here:

    Probably wearing something like this:

    No it was quite bizarre and random but it happened. At least it was only a paintball gun. I was brought up on a council estate in Bolton so I've seen and heard much worse, not that it's a badge of honor of course.

    I would have wrapped it round his head if I'd seen who did it.

    Some nut shot a woman with an arrow over there a couple of years ago.

    OP, did you manage to clean/dry clean your clothes sufficiently?

    Although it sounds like a waste of time, I would have probably reported it, as the twat who did it will probably do it again.

    I'd probably wear a fur coat and that's it.
