Saborlas: That's New York for ya.

If you leave anything made out of metal unsupervised in Vegas, it's getting swiped. They love stealing AC units, too.

rev. dave: A chunk of copper that big is like bait for meth heads.  How on earth did they think leaving that laying around in open was a good idea.

By being  extremely naive; you'd have to measure their street smarts using numbers usually reserved for quantum mechanics.

In between the rampant crime and the "ketchup and cheese-wiz on cardboard" pizza, they find a way to disappoint no matter what the topic is.

Oh look, someone from Boston wants attention.

I didn't realize it was a rivalry until I went to Boston for the first time 6-7 years ago, you people just won't STFU about it. Jeez, I just came to visit.

You know what people in NYC say about Boston? Nothing... They really don't talk about it much at all. Boston is to NYC what Canada is to America... Only the Canadians care enough to trash talk America, and Americans are all like, "Yeah, that's cute, whatever wierdos"

Suitable for a Super Villain or Mad Scientist starter lare.


It looks like somebody already started to carve it into a giant menacing skull or a portrait of the occupant. And it's in the vicinity of Martinique, in the Caribbean. These rock island lares are hard to find outside of the volcanic islands of East Asia. What a bijou real estate gem. Martinique is a French-speaking sugar island that was worth so much to the French that they traded Canada for it. Stupid French. Our quelques arpents of neige are now worth ten or twenty trillion dollars--they could have kept that and invaded Martinique for the Winter the way Canadians invade Cuba and the Dominican Republic each year. The French are just not that good at colonialism, although they are good at putting down rebellions in the former colonies.

brantgoose: Welcome to the dirty mean streets of New York, where gangs of conceptual artists roam the side streets, stealing each other's work and creating meta-conceptual junk art with it.

Sounds like the beginning of a Month Python skit.
