    Lulz, that panic in their eyes is so real, but unwarranted, it's a bit funny. I always help them out though. Whenever I see people confused, I try to help on the subway or platform.

    That is definitely true. I hate drummers regardless where they are in the transit system. If there is no melody then I don't want to hear it in the subway. Some idiot hitting a bunch of spackle buckets isn't getting shit from me.





    I think it is amazing how everybody thinks Brooklyn is still the way it was in the 70's and 80's.

    I find most Asian and European tourists are pretty familiar with public transportation and can navigate the subway pretty well even with a language barrier and a system as vast as the MTA.

    But most domestic tourists who are used to hopping in their car to go down the block are completely lost.

    I expect a lot out of myself and will expect a lot out of my kids. But not so much out of other people. Then again, I'm a criminal defense lawyer, so it's hard for me to be outraged by people who are being annoying on the subway when I deal all day with people who are accused of terrible things (and the cops and prosecutors who abuse their power on a regular basis in trying to put my clients away).


    Yes, good game for Pandev, but a win would have been better.

    It is ok, you are not in the courtroom and have anonimity, you can be honest now.

    Sadly, I wish I was lying, but it's the truth. Also, I think a lot of people on here know who I am IRL, so I don't have that much anonymity. ;)

    Get out of here. You'd rather be on an NYC subway commute to work than in Albany walking through snow and slush.

    Whenever I hear that word, I tend to think of something else.... maybe I have a one track mind.

    It's because they're using Chinese grammar. 口語 = oral English

    FYI 口交 = oral sex :teach:
