It's amazing to me that perfectly routine occurrence that happens four times a year, every year, continues to make national news.  It is even more amazing that anyone outside of New York City gives a shiat.  I live IN NYC and I don't give a shiat.

Is it cloudy in NYC today?

I wish Fark gave me more warning so I would have time to book a flight!

It is.

And I have perfect vantage point

Ennuipoet sounds so cool. I wanna be just like Ennuipoet and tell people all the the things I don't give a shiat about.

Tell us - what are your thoughts on fungi?

This is of course not possible in Seattle because the streets were laid out in two different grids that are at an angle to one another.

Must be fun trying to drive west on one of those days.

Wonder if there is a San Francisco henge.

I enjoy seeing patterns that led to calendars, festivals, harvests, and every thing else our species used to understand the world around them.

Nah, we're good.

Thank god the article explained how Manhattenhenge was a play on Stonehenge, and then what Stonehenge was.

I would have been lost otherwise.
 
2013-07-13 05:56:22 PM  
Holy frak...are New Yorkers really that starved for nature that something like this makes the news?  Get out of that cesspool every now and then and experience real life.

Oh look, New Yorkers wanting attention.  That never gets old.

I'm older than 25 and I don't recall having read about it as "a thing" before. Of course, I live in a flyover state, so if I were there and I witnessed it, I would momentarily think it's cool.

There are several thousand trees on our property, and during every sunrise and sunset any number of them line up perfectly with the sun. We call it the Pacific Northwest Magichenge (one of the biggest henges in the world, btw).
Even better, we don't have 8 million New Yorkers on the property to spoil the experience.

Don't give a shiat.

I could provide you with a complete list of things I don't give a shiat about if you find it relevant to your interest.

I am trying to follow your logic, where in my snark did you infer any statement on my self worth? I noted that a perfectly routine event is somehow presented as news worthy rather than mundane.

I consider myself farking awesome.

I live in CT and did basically the same thing.  Now I'm drinking hard cider and eating bratwurst.  At the end of the day I'm ahead, so there's that.

Bet not one in a thousand even understands why...oh, OK, maybe, but unprompted?

So, I guess every sunny day is good for the north/south streets?  I suppose with some work you could set your clock by it.

I think George Carlin would agree.

I mean, I don't want to see anyone get hurt... but at the same time these events seem to lack a certain je ne sais quoi.

A few stone alters and screaming virgins would really give it the gravitas it deserves.

My house is 130 feet long, and oriented perfectly east-west. On the spring and fall equinoxes one can lay on the peak and observe the sun rise (or set) in perfect alignment with far end of the roof. I figure if society ever collapses and I survive the zombie apocalypse I will at least be able to reset my calendar accurately twice a year.

Smingleigh: The ancient Manhattanites must have so much to teach us.


Mainstream archeologists believe that the Manhattanites based their city construction on a grid system, and that the alignment of the sun down their city's ancient streets is just a coincidence.  But what if this aligment isn't a coincidence, and was instead directed by celestial, alien forces, as ancient astronaut theorists believe...

Look, you guys never made the delivery.

I don't know what you did with those souls but I never got them.

So far as I'm concerned, you'd better make with the sacrificing and bonfiring, or I'm going to send a plague of lawyers.

I would love to see a complete list of things you don't give a shiat about!!

Make sure it's complete, though. 'Cuz I will screencap and use it every chance I get.

"Nope, nope, nope, I have the list, and this event is clearly not on it, therefore you obviously give a shiat about it..."
