Great picture in today's NY Daily News.

To go along with a cheesy headline.

There's proof that the gas price has been inflated if that guy can spend $140,000 so he can cover his fricking gas pumps.

Right hand, meet Left hand. Working together should be helpful. DUhhhh.

I saw this on New York One this morning - and as the reporter was standing there giving the story, Con Edison trucks pulled up and started moving the live wires to the new poles already in place on the new sidewalks.

Behold the power of media!

once I was left standing in the middle of the road. Now THAT'S a headline.

Oh, for a picture of Hamdi with this a caption.

"...widened so the city would allow him to put a canopy over his gas tanks."

They have above-ground tanks at NY gas stations? That's a terrorist act waiting to happen.

There was a dirt road in Queens?

Dear New York,
Welcome to the wonders of the 21st century and the magical paved roads it brings.

Bet he wouldn't be complaining if it was this pair of Live Utility Poles out in the street:

I think they must have meant over his gas pumps. But then who the hell has uncovered gas pumps anymore? Maybe they were those propane tanks you see on the outside of gas stations, because I can't imagine how big a tank that actually held gas would have to be.

Yes, live utility poles. As in they still have power. Not too difficult to understand.

well the station was on a dirt road up til they paved it recently....probably some old mom and pop gas station thats been there for years

Ohh, and above pic is in reference to this.

2003-03-04 05:55:17 PM
I'm surprised noone stole them. Do you know how much they are worth?

We had a "live" utility pole down the street a couple of years ago. The pole had been replaced. The next spring, it sprouted branches about 6 feet off the ground. I guess being pickled in cresote wasn't enough. The guy from TXU that came out said he had never seen such a thing in 35 years with the electric company.
 
2003-03-04 05:56:17 PM
I hope those utility poles are ok. The polish peoples have suffered enough.
 
2003-03-04 05:57:21 PM
You'd be surprised about what non-urban areas ezist within the 5 boroughs, especially in Staten Island.
www.forgotten-ny.com has loads of such places.
 
2003-03-04 05:58:30 PM
mmmmm...cresote pickles...
 
2003-03-04 06:00:26 PM
*from various movies* It's alive!!!!!

*sighs* I've got nothing.
 
2003-03-04 06:13:02 PM
I hope they saved the dirt. They could open up a Wild Dirt Encounter Discovery Center and make a lot of money.

2 Live Utility Poles -- Luther and crew are back!
 
2003-03-04 06:24:31 PM
Hamdi Nagi will hit it for sure! I love it!
 
2003-03-04 06:25:22 PM
here's your live utility pole...
 
2003-03-04 06:26:56 PM
Big deal, a utility pole in the road. Try driving under the L in Chicago, all kinds of poles all in the road.
 
2003-03-04 06:49:05 PM
...i guess they took the strippers out to lunch and got lost...
 
2003-03-04 06:50:59 PM
I got your live utility poles right here.

Oh wait they are more like dead stumps.

2003-03-04 07:22:59 PM
extricated ????

*Ooh, big word*
 
2003-03-04 08:42:07 PM
As opposed to Dead utility poles?

Oh, I think the thread has died also.
 
2003-03-04 08:50:48 PM
i live a few miles from the site,and i had to see for myself-yeesh,we're turning into florida

queens dont have many dirt roads anymore,but the same garbage and broken bottle glass have been on the streets since the 70s

and how admirable of con ed to place 3 orange cones as a safety precaution,in case drivers dont see the pole IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET

dumbass indeed

*Ooh, big word*


Yeh well at least *that* big word was used and spelt correctly.
 
2003-03-04 09:21:29 PM
On Tuesday, Con Edison spokeswoman Joyce Faber said that the poles would be extricated

50 bucks says that this was a paraphrase by the author and not a quote.

Yeah, I love how you biatch about how crappy Florida is and then spend the rest of your post talking about how in queens the trash same trash has "been on the streets since the 70s"...Wow-ee, where do I sign up to live in an over-populated landfill? Go fark yourself.
 
2003-03-05 05:42:15 PM
I used to live in Florida. I moved to Queens. They're both crappy in different ways.
 
2003-03-05 08:26:19 PM
sorry,jeep,i guess you get offended easily.

it was a reference to the florida fark tag,because of the wacky nature of the story.

yeah,i biatch a lot,who doesn't? certainly not you.did you have to rewrite the whole post?mercy.
