Nice photo.

Look for an increase in gourmet restaurants with "mystery" chefs.
 
2012-11-01 11:25:58 AM
Imagine the smell in a few days!

Wait - it probably won't be much different than the standard New Yorker used to.
 
2012-11-01 11:26:17 AM
Don't worry, the other rats will eat the dead ones and their numbers will be back up to higher than ever in time for Christmas.

I remember this happening years ago in DC. There was a major storm with flooding and rat bodies everywhere.
 
2012-11-01 11:30:05 AM
Not like NYC gets their fresh water locally.

Probably the best 'city water' I've ever tried.

...and that was the thing that bothered me the most every time I've visited New York.

Don't get me wrong, phenomenal city. I eat well, I always leave exhausted and hungover and I'm constantly amazed by how cool the people are.

But goddamn if my neck doesn't snap back now and again when I get a snootful.

Just wait until they start pulling out the bodies of the homeless who live in the subway tunnels. I expect he death toll to skyrocket.

What is a euphemism for "peeled rats in heavy cream"?

Thousands?

I give it under a month for the rat population to get back to what it was

Honest question: Where do you go in NYC that smells so awful?

I have never understood this complaint. But you are being fair so I figure I would ask.

I dont know if this is correct or not, but I did read once that a rat can swim 1/4 mile underwater

think about that the next time you are sitting on the toilet

Unfortunately, the rats that survived were all the genetically superior "super-rats" that were intelligent enough to figure out how to escape.

Sleep well, New Yorkers!

Sadly, this...

Also, it only made the survivors stronger. Now we're breeding a generation of rats with Michael Phelps - like swimming ability.

Look out New Jersey! You're about to get a whole new influx of immigrants!

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherf**ker.

For me it was Brooklyn. Spent a week there, but I will be honest with the fact that the reason I was there (university class community outreach) probably placed me in less than perfect conditions.

I did visit other parts of the city so my view isn't totally skewed.

Probably just redistributed the existing rats.

Pretty much any big, old city has a whole mess 'o rats. It's the way of things. Rats are truly astounding survivors, and you just can't get rid of all of 'em.

Come to New York. Visit our wonderful subway system. See wildlife in its natural habitat!

Hurricane Sandy knows all about extermination. Takes Computer Science 3, knows what he's talking about.

I grew up on a farm in the days before rural water, when everyone had their own well for drinking water. The wells usually didn't pump fast enough to keep up with demand, so most people had a cistern that the well would pump into. Our neighbor had an old wooden one that was above ground, and one day their water started smelling funny. After a couple of days of foul smelling water, he went and checked the cistern. There was a huge, bloated, rotting raccoon floating in the water that they were drinking. I never drank a glass of water at their house again.

Yeah, any city can have occasional "aroma" problems. It happens. I just never understood why so many people single out NYC as having a particularly bigger issue with that than any other industrialized, large population city.
 
2012-11-01 12:06:23 PM
So basically the weak, slow, stupid rats all were killed off by Sandy. This leaves only the fast, strong, cunning rats left to repopulate.

Bottom line, in about 6 months NYC will be about 3 generations along with the new breed of super rat thanks to natural selection. Good to know.

The homeless weren't considered to be people in life, why do you expect any different in death?

Yeah Manila can be pretty bad. (it's a city best explored in the back of a bullet-proof, chauffeur driven SUV with tinted windows). But I don't expect cleanliness in a place like that.

Funny, my dad was wondering about this during their "mandatory vacation."

I think, though, that only the tunnels in southern manhattan were flooded. Now the uptown rats have more lebensraum and will be heading downtown for better digs.
