What's a metro card? Is that something you need to get on the bus? Could that be the reason he was kicked off?
 
2013-10-29 09:20:28 PM
I don't want to believe that's true

Please tell me the 11 year old his lying his ass off
 
2013-10-29 09:49:11 PM
There's no proof he wasn't a terrorist. Liberal media.

That's usually what they do before they explode, allahmitter!
 
2013-10-29 10:10:59 PM
Yeah.  "couldn't produce his metro card."  But it was the prayer that got him kicked off.

A metro card is like a Man Card, only very well-groomed and often found at sushi bistros.

I don't want to hear anyone praying in public. If you can't do it in your head, do it in private.

"This bus don't go to Mecca!"

10 year old boy was an attention wh0re.
 
2013-10-29 10:20:57 PM
The boy was probably having the last laugh...

Standing there, thinking about going to the press, knowing he never had a Metro card to begin with, a bunch of explosives in his backpack.

Calling him a terrorist was unnecessary, but, yeah, no card/fare no ride.

Not nearly enough info to determine who did what, much less why.
 
2013-10-29 10:26:48 PM
So did praying help him find his metrocard? I'm curious as to whether it works. BTW... does anyone know if there's currently a website to review God/Prayer? Like yelp. I prayed for my metro card, didn't find it... and got kicked off the bus. Then I got home and my mom beat me for losing my metro card. Zero stars. Something like this could maybe even help God improve his costumer service.

Sheesh.

Not-so-cool story, sis: One of my law school professors is Turkish, she had to take her dog in to the vet for sudden unexplained vomiting of blood (poor doggie) this weekend. As she was sitting in panic in the waiting room & talking on the phone with her mother, apparently mom was praying for doggie, and Seval was semi-hysterically replying "Insh'allah" every few moments. She looked up and realized she was getting some VERY intense looks from the two other people in the vet's waiting room and had to explain she was from Turkey and her mom was praying for her sick dog.

Because clearly the next terrorist attack will be a frantic woman who brings in a bomb cunningly disguised as a vomiting greyhound to an obscure vet's office in Orange County. Clearly.

Other articles (with more actual information) say the kid had already found his card, and was then called a terrorist and the door slammed in his face.

Did he find the card? If he lost the card well, yeah you don't get to ride. Sorry kid. So he couldn't find the card and then starts praying, bus driver loses patience, says something racist, and drives off? Is that where we are?

Not really news, is it.  Yeah, it's not news, it's Fark.  I still remember the last time I was in Chicago getting a cab ride to the airport.  The driver had to stop to pay a toll and the black toll collector told him to go back to his own country.  WTF?  It happens.

But who the hell lets their 10 year old kid out alone in NYC?

More New Yorkers have killed or tried to kill New Yorkers than Muslims have, whether or not they are 10 years old or not.

/I don't have the facts to back that up

The only way this would be possible is if "The South" somehow occupied New York City and displaced its enlightened, tolerant residents! Obama needs to deploy the Army, stat!!!

They let all sorts of degenerates ride buses without metro cards all the time.  I agree that followers of the bloodthirsty abrahamic god are degenerates, but given their normal leeway you probably shouldn't slam the door on a 10 year old.
 
2013-10-29 10:55:45 PM
Prayer in public is a goddamned problem. Why? Because it goes against that holy book some people revere.

There's a passage in the New Testament where Jesus tells his followers not to pray in public. You should pray in private, he states unequivocally, because only Phariseespray in public. Of course, the "followers" today where cotton and polyester together, eat shellfish, and have no problems going to money lenders and being sick heads despite demanding everyone treat them like VIPs.

/Yeah...
//Stupid farking people

No, not really.  Kids in major cities all over the country can usually handle themselves on public transportation by 10.  Or they just have to.  No SUV and available parent to pick up and drop off Precious Child twice a day.

The idea of driving an SUV any major distance in Manhattan at 8am for the old suburban "school drop off" just made me snort so hard I nearly snarfed my beer.

I forget sometimes that some people have just never lived in a major city, so they don't know any better.
 
2013-10-29 11:22:34 PM
How did they know it was a Muslim prayer.  Wouldn't a Christian who is a native Arabic speaker say a Christian prayer in Arabic.  How different would the prayers be, anyhow?
