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.

Saborlas: That's New York for ya.

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.

Not everything about NYC is disappointment.  Y'all just need some cowboys to liven it up a bit

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"

For the record, as a Canadian I only talk trash about America because it's a laughable declining superpower who hates its most vulnerable citizens and has so little moral fibre as a nation that it even privitizes prisons. I won't even be visiting, fret not.

/corporate controlled government is ALMOST democracy. (Yes, similar problems exist here, but not nearly as bad as there.


You elected Rob Ford as your Mayor. You don't get to point fingers anymore.  I rather liked the months I worked in Toronto, very nice, apologetic people... But Rob Ford? Oh please, fark off.

Blackburn metal thieves strip gothic church organ


I'm honestly surprised more statues and structures aren't stolen, in Gainesville GA few years ago a lady tried to sell a park locomotive for scrap even though it was owned by the city, surprisingly meth was not involved.

A big, red candy-like button

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.
