Mugato: Joe Peanut: Where and when?

The city, decent apt, about 10 years ago. Got used to the traffic, just couldn't stand the people, mostly.


Define "the city".  And are you trying to bunch a population of over 8 million as "the people'?  There are just as big a concentration of a-holes in this city as there is anywhere else.  Just as there is just as big a concentration of wonderful people.  It really depends on whom you chose to associate with.  Will one find a-holes in NYC?  You bet.  You'll also find a lot of great wonderful folks.  it is just that with a concentration you'll find more of both.  The trick is to ignore the few bad ones, and concentrate on the good.

Ima4nic8or: No shiat??? That is what you get for living in a place with so many folks crammed in together.  Humans are not meant to live that way.  There should be a rule that every residential structure provide at least one acre of free space per family of 4.  If less/more than 4 then scale linearly.


That's nonsense.  Since humans evolved, they've been living together in cities.  Our earliest ancestors formed clans of family and realized that living together would give them a benefit in obtaining food and for protection from other clans.  Then they realized that they could live with this clan for even more protection and ultimately tribes were formed and so on.

We've been cramming into cities forever.

Loads of people don't like it and live in a more rural or roomy setting but just b/c you may fall into that category, it doesn't mean that we are not meant to live in cities.


Also,   you can't hear planes coming to or going from LaGuardia in Jackson Heights.

Noise pollution and light pollution are actually serious issues. The health effects are very real, though they are not always as easy to trace. The catch is that they seem to be a hazard of industrial society that is hard to stamp out. That said, they could put noise limits on vehicles and other engines (like leaf blowers and stuff), and actually enforce them, but it would be painful in the short term for a lot of businesses. Those 2 stroke landscaping engines honestly should be banned for the pollution, not just air pollution but noise too.

Even those of us who DON'T live in NYC mostly have hearing damage; we just rarely experience near silence so we rarely notice how farked our hearing is. I have noticeable damage, and intermittent problems with tinnitus. Too late to do anything now but try to prevent more damage.

It's not the traffic, pollution, crime, overcrowding and just the general ashhole-ity of New Yorkers?
