FunkOut: I would like to trap these people in human live traps and release them somewhere where they have to struggle to survive. Holiday in Somalia Des Moines, perhaps.
i upped my meds-up yours: First world overedjumacated white people problems.
StoneColdAtheist: LOL...okay, I apologize. I finally clicked on TFA...and realized that DeltaPunch's photo links had nothing to do with it.
UncleStumpy: i upped my meds-up yours: First world overedjumacated white people problems.It wind be first world once Frankenstein is doneMUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
AgentBang: I am in the park slope neighborhood and just went to one of the "normal" grocery stores. Definitely long lines, but it was mostly families and very normal. Was able to get what I needed with minimal hipster interfacing. I figure I didn't want to get too much since if we have to evac how the were we supposed to carry 5 tons of food?Last year for Irene I did enjoy the folks at Target stocking up on milk and frozen pizzas though.
Vectron: hmmm. They didn't look much different from people in Dubuque
Farnn: The only things out of stock were bread which makes sense and vegetables which seemed weird to me.
ronaprhys: Meh - it was only hipsters. It's not like anything of value will be lost if they don't make it.
OgreMagi: I stopped going to Trader Joes because the stuff wasn't all that great. They have a few things I like, but I rarely bother to go there. I had a girlfriend who insisted on shopping at Whole Foods. Even when she was struggling to pay rent, she would shop there and spend at least twice as much money than if she just went to a regular supermarket. Last I heard, she was homeless. She's probably now begging for money to get organic juice and sustainable macadamia nuts at Whole Foods. She pretty much went off the deep end and should probably be locked up.
StoneColdAtheist: LOL...okay, I apologize. I finally clicked on TFA...and realized that DeltaPunch's photo links had nothing to do with it./still, that Athens cop kicking the dog needs a boot to the nutsack
OgreMagi: I guess the hipsters have to buy wine because they want to make sure it's fresh. Personally, I'll just suffer through these old dusty bottles of wine I have stored away.
AbbeySomeone: People panic and stock up before storms. The really f*cked up part of the story is that they had to go to seperate stores to buy wine. WTF is wrong with you people?
UncleStumpy: UncleStumpy: i upped my meds-up yours: First world overedjumacated white people problems.It wind be first world once Frankenstein is doneMUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAI meant won't. Appropriate autocorrect/sent from my vic20
jjorsett: I could live comfortably for months on the food and other consumables I have stored. When I see stories like this, I'm thinking that I should have a backup survivalist compound in the mountains, since all that stuff just makes me a big attraction to my starving-within-two-days neighbors.
zerkalo: Des Moines
Bonzo_1116: Whole Foods is a f*cking rip-off.
LemSkroob: Wine & Liquor = at liquor stores. Can't buy beer at them.
