    I'm just happy I didn't rush up with an actual axe. Could have gone badly for me.

    I have those mul-t-loc keys keys so this will be an expensive replace. Great system, they have but one flaw ... easy to steal.

    Anyone in the market for a gently used pine tree, about 6' tall? I know where you can get them.

    Talked to the forensic cop they sent over. He is a 14-year-old kid who has been dipping into apts for two days. They called his guardian (uncle) who said, "fuck him."

    Kind of sad.

    Also looking at a $600 locksmith fee.

    Kind of fuck me.

    So, in addition to the beggars, there is also a noticeable uptick in crazy street ranters.

    Coincidence, or DeBlazio?

    today sucked because mid to high 30's ºF and slushy snow was a welcomed improvement in weather.

    its practically light jacket weather right now.... except don't forget the boots.

    D, I used to think it was just something about you and SanFo, but I'm beginning to think you are a magnet for unusual urban experiences. :)

    That said, any concerns you may have had about being corrupted by our unmanly ways here in the US should be forgotten. Ax helve? Way to charge, my man. :slayer:

    Sometimes I think the universe has put a big "kick me" sign on my back. But then, I am a masochist so it all works out.

    On the plus side building is picking up the locks.

    Jesus Christ that shit pisses me off so much.

    I so, so, SO want one of those cars being blocked to just say "fuck this" and drive right through them. Un-fucking-real.

    I can see why the cops can't or don't want to chase them down, but when they're performing stunts for 20 minutes in the street you should be able to cordon the block off.

    Was wondering the same. Why can't they just plug the street from both ends, then arrest the lot of them?

    I did not read the article, or click on the link. I am afraid I will get very irritated if I do.
