i'm not necessarily convinced that they're capable of this in the first place
Sure, we can plug you into the hive.
Just leave all belongings, tangible and intangible, at the door.
They are capable. It is our job to change that.
To me, that would be un-plugging from the hive.
It isn't if all your belongings, tangible and intangible, then belong to the hive.
Yeah. My NY is a never-ending series of replicated movie scenes. I have called guys "mooks" and once said, "I'm walking here" to a cab driver.
I don't think Midnight Cowboy had come to Bangladesh yet.
Alleys are your friend. I also scan two blocks ahead for anyone who looks like they're getting into a car. Once I'm in a 6 block radius of my destination I jump on the first spot I see. Pretty standard approach.
Rarely use a garage.
My father's favorite word to call people he is irritated with is "mook". In his defense, he is from Brooklyn.
Or to get lip balm
Schmuck is far better.
Also, he usually adds somewhere along the way that he wants to "pipe" said "mooks" (pipe meaning hit them with a piece of metal piping).
New york , is it Manhattan ? Small island largely converted to shopping mall? Is it unbearable traffic and overpopulation? Is it unbelievable noise 24/7 and lack of breathable air?
Is it Broadway and off broadway that mooches money from celebrity voyeurs with their pathetic productions always starring a celeb who happened to be between shoots?
i like this guy's work
The Seinfeldesque discussion.
To be fair, buses and trains in Queens don't follow very straightforward paths and it can be kind of annoying to get somewhere-- like, say, from Union Turnpike to Grand Avenue along the L-- without a car. In theory, the example I provided ought to be an easy trip, but the best you can do without a car is either ride a bike or walk to Briarwood, take the 54, and then walk past/through the cemetery. Other fun options include taking the F all the way to 14th street and catching the L to basically end up in the same borough you started in, and catching the M at 71st and enjoying that fun ride.
So yes, we're dumb about our cars in Queens, but sometimes, the transit system's even dumber.
