We took one of them from outside a store and put it on our friends roof one night. This one was plastic and hollow. We even gave it a Hitler mustache.

//We took it as we were leaving from eating there after bar-close, we were glowing as much as the plastic statue.
//Friend was not amused
///mmmm, grilled cheese made out of bread sticks is great drunk food.

Cop beatings are more consistent, like rain. Riots could be more like hail.

These Californians are never happy.  First they cry about no rain.  Now they cry because there is rain.  Next, they'll be crying because it's too fiery.

Reporter Chicks, very nice, my compliments.  If you can look that good reporting on a "massive" tree falling over in a windbreaker and jeans, they got to be edible all dressed up.

I was in that movie.  My scene got cut, along with every other scene that made it make sense.

Not gonna lie, it was treacherous driving around the city yesterday, more so than normal. Im used to driving in the rain (from PA), but my fellow Angelenos aren't and it shows.

It's all the build up of muck as well.  My first rain in LA, I was barely moving, less than 5mph.  i applied the brakes and slid all the way down Laurel Canyon.  if the light at the base hadn't switched to green, I would've slid into oncoming traffic.

I gotta say though, Angelenos know how to handle their weather and traffic a hell of a lot better than Virginians.  Over here they flip out when it rains even though its expected.

Since it only rains every 5 years there, all the oil that has been soaking into the roads floats up when it rains. After moving from LA to PA, I can't believe how grippy the roads here in PA are when they are wet.

I still find the funniest thing about all this is all the "Is the drought finally OVER?!?" hype. No, you dumbasses, the water is coming down so fast it's all going to run off into the ocean instead of soaking in.

I'm glad they got rain, but it would have been better to get a light rain over 2 weeks rather than this.

It's not everybody, it's just the people who on a normal day drive like maniacs that cause the problems during a storm because the wet roads magnify the danger. They think they can drive in exactly the same manner as if the streets were dry; speeding, tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, LOOKING AT THEIR GODDAMN CELLPHONE. That kind of shiat is dangerous on the clearest day, you throw in decreased visibility and slick roads and the law of averages catches up real quick.

\ they key is to leave later and drive faster, that way you're on the roads for less time.
\\ SAFETY!

That was the movie I took my wife to on our first date. Amazingly, she wanted to keep seeing me after that.

\ it wasn't that bad, it had its moments.

The dog in the pumps was hilarious.

 I was stuck in that movie theater for 18hrs straight.  Robert Downey Jr. played Doors tunes on his guitar and Steve Martin did an improv comedy act to keep us sane.  Eddie Murphy had apparently told all the ADs that extras were not to look him in the eye or approach him, so they applied that to all the leads. Steve Martin and Jaime Kennedy finally had to ask me why the ladies seemed to shun them. I blamed Murphy, and they rolled their eyes.  Apparently he's like that.  It was truly a weird night.  It was the day Falco died, so there was this bar right next to holding that was giving out free shots and playing Rock Me Amadeus.  We would sneak out and get drinks.

Awwwww :-( That is where my hubby and I met through friends. True love at first sight. 14 years ago and I remember every little detail. We were sitting in the Beatles booth. I love you hubby!

Somebody tell Bill Maher that turning your car headlights on with the wipers in the daytime is actually required by law in Illinois, so, you know, YOUR CAR is easier to see in the rain and snow.

Is that the Bob's Big Boy that David Lynch ate at every day for seven years?  If only he had told them what the weather would be.

The dogs don't want to go out. They think that Outside is broken, and want us to fix it for them.

That happens when a bulldog has to endure hot weather.  He looks at you, "I'm HOT!  FIX IT!"

TheAbstractor Is that the Bob's Big Boy that David Lynch ate at every day for seven years?  If only he had told them what the weather would be.

Yes, cup of coffee, chocolate milkshake every day, he also used that time to write "Blue Velvet".  God knows what it did to his teeth.

The 'Mo's' restaurant across the street was also the original iHop

while I'm on a roll "Big Boy" was the nickname of Richard Woodruff, a local little fat kid who would do odd errands around the original location in turn for free food from Bob Wian, shockingly he died in his 50's iof a heart attack.  A Warner Bros cartoonist who ate there sketched the Woodruff cartacature  http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=55313131
