The guy deserves the hero tag for being at the bar until 2am. Makes me want to move back so I can reelect him. Of course, this is the same guy who "suffered the embarrassment of seeing photographs of himself, naked and slumped over his porch after too many drinks, posted on the Internet."

As a Jersey City resident who worked at a JC bar tonight...when that came on the news after the basketball game, everyone in my bar cheered. Jersey City is also the fastest growing urban area on the east ooast. Think of the location of DUMBO NYC, the neighborhoods of SOHO, (crime rate of Newark/Camden...I know someone who gets mugged at least once a month. To be fair though...they don't understand how NOT to be mugged...it's ok though, most white/rich people don't.) This is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the world, and the old school corrupt politicians don't know how to handle it. (there is no Sopranos...they're the ones in charge...but sssshhhhshh...) Just glad to see that farker maced! Jersey City...Even Our Own Mayor Can Get Farked up!....BTW Google Ex-Mayor Cunningham, this Mayor and all of the other politico wannabes/insane people.

I love Jersey City, not gonna lie, but I find sooooo much satisfaction in hearing about this farker....

kudos to sick_tired for the Mexas XLR (Lowbrow) pic...I always thought the show should've been aimed at adults, not kids....GOAT RULES!!!!!(Just watch how much jagermeister he drinks!)

You know, I actually find this amusing.

Back when my kids were in high school, we sent them out to visit my sister and her husband in New Jersey, about six months before the first attack on the WTC.

While they were definitely shook up over seeing the damages to the PATH station, the one their aunt, my sister, took them through on their trips into NYC, what really creeped them out was when the FBI found the mosque or whatever in Jersey City where the dirtbags cooked up the bomb.

Their Uncle Joe is on the faculty at Jersey City University. "Dad," they said when they watched the news, "we drove right past that place every time we went in to see Uncle Joe at work!"

Some how, this latest nugget is not in the least bit surprising after all that.

Please do not base your opinions of New Jersey on Jersey City. Yes, Jersey City is corrupt, dangerous, and dirty. There is plenty of beauty in Jersey, you just have to look for it.

I'm in New Brunswick a lot because that's where my school is, and the only time I've been sketched out was when I was parking my car on the street and some random dude tried to get me to give him a ride down the street because he'd twisted his ankle and couldn't walk. Though he lifted up his pant leg to reveal his supposed twistedness saying "see how swollen it is!", when I quickly drove away he lost his sagging limp and walked off to find someone else to rob and murder.

/Other than that and the drunks, New Brunswick's not too bad.

quadropheniac: I would like to officially propose a new Jersey tag for New Jersey articles. Any supporters?


Second the motion. The tag would have to be a Jersey barrier with the name "Joisey" written across.

Support for the tag:

The only state with a convenience chain called "Wawa."

Other stores always seems to have "Bubba" in the name: Buuba's Liquours, Bubba's Deli.

Beer is only sold at liquor or "packaged good stores" -- can't buy it at the supermarket.

It is ILLEGAL to pump your own gas.

The endless Jersey Barrier, which in NJ is called a "traffic divider" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jersey_barrier) Need I say more?

In order to make a left-turn at one of the rare openings in the Jersey barriers you have to make a right turn at a "right-turn loop".

The only state with a "State Smell."

The state is really just a long bypass, in order to move traffic and goods as fast and effectively as possible to and from NY. Just look at a map: The NJTP goes from NE NJ (that is NY) diagonally SW to connect to Philly and then points south via the Delaware Br. Central NJ and its handful of residents between the NJTP and the Garden State are totally disenfranchised and not at all served by any major arteries.

Even back in 1866, the now defunct Jersey Central RR was intended for traffic between NY and Philly. New Jersyans need not ride. (http://jcrhs.org/cnj.html) The southern portion of the RR was intended to bring New Yorkers and Philadelphians to AC. Again an entire portion of the state simply was not served by transportation.

Not only is NJ's usage of the term "borough" somewhat confusing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boroughs), they are too lazy or ignorant to spell the term properly; "boro" is used instead.

/I'm sure fellow farkers can add more.

zyle: JerseyChicago. teh armpit of America. nuff said.

There, fixed that for you. Now if I could only fix your ignorance.

blackheart666: but he gets a major "speak the truth" point.

Yes, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you either live west of Bosley Avenue or are a Towson University student. Because if you were from my area of Towson, you wouldn't speak such ignorance.

RU_Rules: The only state with a convenience chain called "Wawa."

And yet MORE ignorance. WaWa is a PENNSYLVANIA-based chain in PA, NJ, DE and MD, dum-dum.

Beer is only sold at liquor or "packaged good stores" -- can't buy it at the supermarket.

There are quite a number of states in the US where you can't buy beer and wine except in liquor stores.

Last time I was in Cape May, you could buy beer and wine at the Acme or Shop-Rite, but had to go to the state stores for hard liquor.

It is ILLEGAL to pump your own gas.

And yet, the gas is STILL cheaper in NJ than in any of the surrounding states. Why is that?

The endless Jersey Barrier, which in NJ is called a "traffic divider". Need I say more?

Yes, because I don't understand what your point is. The divider wall is not unique to NJ.

In order to make a left-turn at one of the rare openings in the Jersey barriers you have to make a right turn at a "right-turn loop".

Called a "jug handle". Do you really want to make a left-hand turn across some of those four-lane high-speed roads? You're not from around there, are you?

The only state with a "State Smell."

You know, given your FARK ID and your arrogant and ingnorant post, I'm going to go out on another limb and say you're an out-of-state student at Rutgers, aren't you? Try getting leaving campus from time to time and learn that there is much more to New Jersey than the Route 1 corridor between Trenton and New Brunswick. Head over to the Delaware River, take a day trip to Lambertville and New Hope, go up to the mountains, down to Avalon or Stone Harbor, and live a little, eh?

Mor Beal Don't even bother being offended by the anti Jersey posts. Some of them are true. Unless one has grown up here or lived here a long time, they'll never understand what makes Jersey an interesting place to live. Growing up in urban Jersey is a priceless education in human nature...something the detractors from bumblefuk will never have.

Yes, many times, more times then I wouldlike to remember. My grandmother lived in south Jersey until about 1987. Was just there last week on a suicide run to Great Adventure. (Overrated and overpriced.)

Errrrr.....Wawa is headquartered in Wawa, Pennsylvania.

Oregon prohibits self-service gasoline, as well.

NJ's "state smell" also exists all along the gulf coasts of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.

The "bypass" argument is really old, and equally valid in huge areas of many states. No originality points for you.

The "Jersey barrier" is so horrific that it's used all over the world as an effective means of dividing traffic and protecting construction workers. Shame, huh?

Oddly enough, "borough" is a term that's used all over the northeastern US. Ever hear of "the five boroughs" of New York City?

I buy beer at Shop-Rite every time I'm in NJ. Where the hell do YOU shop?

Aulus: While they were definitely shook up over seeing the damages to the PATH station, the one their aunt, my sister, took them through on their trips into NYC, what really creeped them out was when the FBI found the mosque or whatever in Jersey City where the dirtbags cooked up the bomb.

back in early '02, a SWAT team busted an apt. 3 blocks down from my apt. They pulled out a bunch of guys who turned out to have been housing and aiding the 9-11 terrorists, and that a couple of them had probably shacked up in that apt. for a spell. Fun stuff.

To all the people ripping Jersey City, its really not that bad. I've lived in crappier neighborhoods in Indianapolis and Oakland, and my GF (whose been living there for five years longer than me and has seen her neighborhood slowly gentrifying with each successive year) said that compared to the shiatty Richmond neighborhood she made the mistake of renting an apt in, sight unseen, back in college, this area was a walk in the park)

Mor Beal: And yet MORE ignorance. WaWa is a PENNSYLVANIA-based chain in PA, NJ, DE and MD, dum-dum.

Don't get me started on PA.

There are quite a number of states in the US where you can't buy beer and wine except in liquor stores.

Doesn't make it the norm.

And yet, the gas is STILL cheaper in NJ than in any of the surrounding states. Why is that?

Tax and spend liberal politicians, placing needless taxes on gas.

Yes, because I don't understand what your point is. The divider wall is not unique to NJ.

The barrier IS a good thing, the bad thing is having to drive miles to make a U-turn at a jug handle when you simply want to patronize a store that is across the street.

Called a "jug handle". Do you really want to make a left-hand turn across some of those four-lane high-speed roads? You're not from around there, are you?

Other states, such as NY, have a dedicated left-turn lane, along with a left-turn traffic signal.

You know, given your FARK ID and your arrogant and ingnorant post, I'm going to go out on another limb and say you're an out-of-state student at Rutgers, aren't you?

Hell no!

Schmee: The "bypass" argument is really old, and equally valid in huge areas of many states. No originality points for you.

Old or not, large swathes of NJ need to travel miles out of their way to reach highways, since NJ doesn't have a higway running N-S in the middle of the state. Once 55 opened, I stopped using 206, so I have no idea if it has been widened. I think not, since I needed to go to +6 magnifaction in Googlemaps to find the number of the road.

The "Jersey barrier" is so horrific that it's used all over the world as an effective means of dividing traffic and protecting construction workers. Shame, huh?

It is the endlessness of it that is the problem. How does it protect construction on workers on northern NJ roads where there is a shoulder, 2 lanes, barrier with next to no clearance between the left lane and the barrier?

Oddly enough, "borough" is a term that's used all over the northeastern US. Ever hear of "the five boroughs" of New York City?

Yes, except that we spell it correctly.

And yet, the gas is STILL cheaper in NJ than in any of the surrounding states. Why is that?

I am guessing A) property tax and such is cheaper B) something with oil refineries being in NJ and crappifying a portion of NJ that the oil companies actually feel pity and give a discount?

You know, given your FARK ID and your arrogant and ingnorant post, I'm going to go out on another limb and say you're an out-of-state student at Rutgers, aren't you? Try getting leaving campus from time to time and learn that there is much more to New Jersey than the Route 1 corridor between Trenton and New Brunswick. Head over to the Delaware River, take a day trip to Lambertville and New Hope, go up to the mountains, down to Avalon or Stone Harbor, and live a little, eh?

Unfortunately there is a smell in "certain" areas of NJ you pass by. These are the industrial areas, so I am guessing that is what is causing the smell that NJ is infamous for?

I don't think I could live in NJ. I work in JC (along the river side) and I can tell you that this area has no fast food and they gouge you on food prices like they were in NYC or something. The rest of JC is a in a bit developmental phase which makes it look like crap.

When they have a city that never sleeps, where you can wake up around 11PM and say I want to go eat something and walk over to a deli, McDonalds, diner, etc. then I might reconsider living elsewhere. I say screw all the other cities that have McDonalds and other fastfood places (and malls) that close at 6PM-7PM everyday! Fark any city who thinks a chinatown is 1-2 city block(s) and/or which is comprised 50% of Vietnamese, Indonesian, etc. stores.

In order to make a left-turn at one of the rare openings in the Jersey barriers you have to make a right turn at a "right-turn loop".

The "jughandle" mentioned above, helps keep the left lane as the passing lane. (Which by the way, NJ Law is to use the left lane on highways (GSP, NJT, US1, I195, NJ42, etc) as the passing lane only.) Like a normal highway, the "exit" is on the right. Of course to make things a bit more confusing, although many of these are being removed on our highways, you will see the occasional left-turn lane or exit.
