The Green Manalishi: Work canceled tomorrow. Only thing open is the bar down the street. It's Miller Time.


I begged, pleaded and demanded, but they refused to close down work tomorrow. They didn't listen to any of my arguments, the news, anything, they were all just like 'But, the hurricane is on the east coast, and we're all here in Seattle'

Also, they threatened to lock me in my office again, but that happens a lot so it may be unrelated.

hehe exactly. Ask directions? Happy to help. Just don't block the sidewalk 5 across as you meander down Central Park South and I am trying to get to work

And you say my point was bullsh*t? NYers aren't going to do any of that. Ergo, you love other NYers.

bullshiat about being dicks to tourists.
We're not. I love talking to tourists at the bars or giving them recommendations for places to eat or see. Happy giving directions or answering any questions you have if I can and have the time. Just don't impede my daily shiat

That's been my experience with NYC. I've been there a few times for work, and even though I have a very obvious western KS accent (think Bob Dole if he were younger -- and female), everyone has always been very courteous and helpful to me when I'm visiting.


NYC's reputation for rudeness is very undeserved. It is a hurried city and people do tend to be curt but that shouldn't be mistaken for rudeness. It's just that sometimes you people sound like Ents to us :)

Go ahead...look up ANY comparison chart between Katrina and this SUB-tropical system...Katrina was worse by an order of magnitude on nearly every measure...yet all we got were pictures of people looting in order to have something to eat after 4 days without, or something to drink (if all that was left to take was beer, then you'll drink beer before you drink sewer-water).

No compassion for new orleans...no compassion for you.

Marine1: skullkrusher: Marine1: 12349876: sethen320: Category 1 storm with extras on the side...not farking end of the world. Get a grip people.

The storm surge is much more than a normal Category 1 and is creating unprecedented flooding in many areas.

It's not that we don't get that, it's that we have been told that New York is The Greatest City on EarthTM and they apparently never thought to install flood controls despite the fact that they're on level with the Atlantic Ocean and on a potential hurricane track. Now we're going to get to spend a few hundred million dollars cleaning it up.

NYC does have flood protection. However, these surges are the greatest they've been in recorded history in lots of places. I suppose Bloomie could build 40 foot sandbag walls all around the city and have avoided a lot of the damage but there's a point where you can only plan for what can be reasonably expected.

It's a Cat 1 hurricane. You can reasonably expect those.


and the NY metro area has endured those and worse with much less damage. This isn't the same. This is a frankenstorm which my research tells me has something to do with a regular hurricane falling into a vat of radioactive waste and emerging with super-storm surge powers
