Is "Coney Island whitefish" slang for used condoms?

Jesus Christ, is it so hard not to throw our used medical waste into the ocean? How is that possibly legal?

I'm pretty sure needles were around back in those "good old days" too.

This happened in the '80s frequently. It's due to illegal dumping of medical waste in the ocean.

Why are you so quick to defend junkies? Is there something you want to share?

If a Diabetic or Junkie is a moron, and being human that's pretty likely, then they just dump needles into the trash. They're light enough to blow away and the air in the syringe makes them float.

I can't think of many things that are more disgusting than stepping on a used needle.... and I've been on the internets.

The article seems to imply that it was "medical waste". Unless they're just using that as a blanket term.

The content protection on that site doesn't endear itself to me very much.
 
2012-07-26 08:27:03 PM
I didn't read "junkies" from the article; I read "mafia trash dumping medical waste".

Nut case Bloomberg should outlaw needles in New York City. They kill more people than guns, salt and 32 oz drinks.

In the 1980s there was a funny-comics-turn-serious-PSA day when they warned about the dangers of needles on beaches.

For you kids, comics used to be printed on paper and bundled together onto a single page for your reading pleasure. Occasionally they would conspire to have a single theme across multiple strips on the same day.

Legal Schmegal. Won't you think of the job creators? They invented the job of dumping medical waste in the ocean, you want to put those people on the streets? You want to see United Health's CEO have to buy a 72 foot yacht instead of the 100 footer he earned creating all those jobs?

I remember in 2002 I had to do a trade show in Atlantic city for a week, the company I was working for booked me and my girlfriend at the time in a 5 star for a week, and then for 4 days in Philly, as a present for having to be in Atlantic City.

My girl and i decided to get a buzz on and walk down the boardwalk at about 4:00 pm.

farking nastiest beach I have ever seen, rubbers, syringes, and a 50 year old tranny offering to suck my dick or sell me heroin....

Which could easily be stopped using the same sorts of regulations where your input better match your output to proper disposal, Christ I've seen how well that works in Mexico.

You just quoted my experience with Genoa Italy. Wasn't a tranny though, think it was a reverse tranny.

My guess is that this is mob activity, in which case, they've greased some palms to look the other way.

Or simply detached some palms from their owners for talking.

Count your blessings, East Coasters, at least it's not radioactive tsunami debris caked with invasive species.

Growing up in NJ this was always a concern when I was younger. Lots of medical waste dumped in the water from Staten Island that washed up on NJ beaches.

Be thankful she didn't try to suck your heroin then sell you your dick.

I grew up in new york city and my father used to refer to them as hudson river whitefish, and yes, they are used condoms.

The addendum to that was I had brought the DVD for the film Barcelona with me and told the girl to pop it in whilst I was in the shower, and she did and she yells out"you love strange flicks"

I get out of the shower go in to the bedroom, and there is a gian black woman getting assbanged on tv. Turns out the last guest had left his Anal Fat Black Chick avengers in the DVD player....

Ahhh, I remember the good old days of doing "Sharps Patrol"... even better was when they'd call you over the walkie-talkies to do that and beach-goers would overhear and thought they said "Shark Patrol" and freak the heck out. Good times, good times.

/found 2 needles
