    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    and another entry to this tread.

    I was just a Duane Reade purchasing my sugarfree Red Bull, and the guy at the register next to me was "busted" for paying with counterfeit money. A fake 1 dollar bill. WTF?

    In the end, I recon there is a <1% chance that the bill was actually fake since there is a 100% chance that the person behind the counter was a moron.

    I got road raged at for walking across a clearly marked intersection. The guy then went blew through a stop sign and honked at a car in front of him that was going the speed limit and honked a block after that. wtf?

    I didn't see it, but my friend bought his sister's boyfriend's old phone and noticed some pictures and a video on it. He played the video and it was his sister sucking her boyfriend's dick giving him as he put it "the dirtbike", (think about it).

    I am laughing so hard right now.

    ugh, that reminds me, yesterday I saw a cab nearly take out two families. The walk sign was there and this guy was plowing through the intersection at what seemed like 35-40 mph. On the one side, my side, 2 girls screamed and leaped back, while on the other side two 14-15 year old boys stopped roughly halfway through the intersection and had to do one of those Matrix-style bends to avoid being hit. The driver slammed on his breaks (he still would have hit people had they not moved), but as soon as he seemed to have enough room he just went "fuck it" and kept plowing through. When they passed, I saw that the passanger in the back had his hand over his face, and rightfully so. The driver should be pelted with stones.

    Being mortified by my cab driver's driving is at least a weekly occurrence for me.

    Why can't people just say brakes? I guess it's a pet peeve from BF.

    cabs are the reason why I would never ride a bike in the city. They terrify me as a pedestrian as the idea of "share the road" does not apply to them. A few months ago, I had a rental car in the city and was tailgated by a cab on a side street. As soon as we crossed an avenue, he actually darted out and passed me before (barely) sweeping back in as the avenue space ended.

    That happens to me weekly, the dog and I almost got run over yesterday.

    Bike riders are just as bad when it comes to not obeying the traffic laws, I'm surprised not more cyclists get killed each year.

    I was riding with my boss one time; we got stopped short at a red light, went to make a right turn. Some bike came off the sidewalk, went right into the intersection across the red light. Plowed directly into the side of the SUV and got catapulted across the hood. He crashed to the pavement, leapt up, grabbed his crumpled bike and took off running. It was incredibly bizarre and shocking.

    I was once explained to me that residents these days are quite coddled. Back in the old days, the residents lived in the hospital 24/7 -that's why they are called residents. They were given 2 white shirts, 2 white pants, 3 meals per day and $50/month (apparently salary was quite a coup ~ they used to be paid $0). If you had a wife and/or kids, you could see them on Sunday afternoon.
