doglover: Goimir: Chicago was founded by people from New York who said "We like the crime and the pollution, but it's just not COLD enough!"

And cholesterol.

And they brought with them a picture of a pizza, with no knowledge on how to make one. Thus Chicago Style Casserole was born.

pivazena: p the boiler: pivazena: Just moved to Chicago from North Carolina.  What the fark is this shiat?  What tiny bit of moisture exists in my apartment, after having these awful clanky LOUD drying radiators on, is frozen to the windows!  I have frosted glass!  i didn't even THINK about stepping outside today.  Maybe tomorrow, just to experience this stupidly cold city.  Pretty sure my car won't start.  There's salt stains all over my jeans and my floors.  AND I got a parking ticket the other day because I didn't move my car to the proper side of the street in a snow emergency?  How was I supposed to know it was a snow emergency?!  UUUUGGGGGHHHHHH

/okay seriously, I'm happy to be here and it's a good move, but JESUS way to roll out the welcome mat, upper midwest.

Chicago thanks you for your donation to the  streets and sanitation department. Also, get boots.

On it.  My jeans are too long is the problem.  And now I get text alerts when there's a snow emergency.  Still pissed ;-)

Also, you should ditch the car - it makes life so much easier in the city. Unless you have a dying urge to go to Schaumburg.

KawaiiNot: I just LOVE all these recent links that auto direct me to the App Store instead of letting me read the stupid news story.

(Since you're stupid: No...No, I don't)

I want the person who created that bit of code to be punched in the kidneys repeatedly.

Moved from Chicago last year. Still own a condo I'm renting there. Talked to the renters yesterday to remind them to keep the kitchen sink running so the pipes won't freeze.

Friend of mine posted a picture from this morning where he did the trick where he goes outside, pours boiling water into a bucket, throws it in the air and it turns into frozen "dust".

Meanwhile, I'm in sunny So Cal and debating taking the kids to the park when they get up from their naps.
