    She always assumes I'm being unreasonable. I'm guilty until proven innocent.

    i always feel awkward when a cop comes onto the train that I'm riding. "is there something about this train that I don't know? should I get off?"

    Did you see the video of three or four cops in SWAT gear slowly walking the aisles of a Greenwich-bound MTA train? That would be cause for concern.

    He's well in fourth place. Won't even make the runoff.

    if I had a boat, Carlos Danger would be an awesome name for it.



    at least before people start to make sinking jokes.

    ^they have a ton of RC planes going in Floyd Bennett field (near breezy point). its cool because they bring out the big ones and even jet engined RC planes. Its theoretically really dangerous because there's foot/car/bike traffic that crosses right on the runway/landing strip.

    the area (surrounded by Jamaica bay) can get windy (as evidenced by what happened when sandy hit) so a 150 pound 6 foot long jet engined RC plane could obliterate someone.

    but it is awesome seeing huge 6ft long jet engined RC planes there. my wife and I were mesmerized watching for almost an hour in the past.

    Predictably, NYPD isn't happy.
