IrateShadow: Can we stop with the liquid bans already? It's a farking stupid security measure that's based on the plot from Die Hard 3.
Mangoose: 2) Why is this asinine?
TheSelphie: This. I would know, I have to take Storrow on the way to work. They sure as hell do not close it on the 3rd... except for this year. One lane is going to be closed westbound starting at 6am, and the whole thing is going to be shut down by noon. What a clusterfark.
The My Little Pony Killer: Wow, it's really really sad that Boston is allowing themselves to remain terrorized.
Zulu_as_Kono: Theaetetus: Christ, what an asshole.You probably complain about how expensive beers are at Fenway, and popcorn at the movies.
Zulu_as_Kono: Theaetetus: The real enemy they're targeting - people who won't pay $20 for a beer and a hot dog.Again - the type of folks who go to this thing? F*ck 'em. Let them get overcharged. None of this will affect me or anyone I know in any way whatsoever.
Mister Buttons: I swear to god, all we need is a few biker gangs full of disenfranchised teenagers on motorcycles and we'll have fulfilled the prophecy of every 90's anime movie I've ever seen./tentacle porn need not apply.
Zulu_as_Kono: BunkoSquad: I guess everyone has their own definition of "sniveling weenies". Anyone who feels "well, they can do whatever they need to do to me to keep me feeling safe" fits my bill, but hey, freedom to interpret it your own way.Yeah, I don't see going through security in order to attend a free outdoor event within an enclosed area as a great affront to my liberty. But maybe I'm more robust than you.
BgJonson79: Well, it *IS* the People's Republic of Massachusetts...
jshine: Were I in charge, I'd cancel the event entirely rather than going as far as what they describe in TFA. Just admit that the terrorists won rather than demonstrating the fact by making an obscene spectacle out of "security".
FarkinHostile: I'd sooner snort draino than be in Boston for the 4th.
