Uh, oh. They've been living like kings and have had lots of time to booby trap everything. Stay safe and shoot first, New Yorkers. 🙏

I have lived in Williamsburg for seven years and still haven't figured out why my neighbors feed rats. All my neighbors. Every day there is food laid out for blocks in ever direction. I guess Hasidism just like rats.

You could nuke NYC and the rats would simply start fighting over the suntan lotion.

Do people there still leave their garbage bags out on the sidewalk for collection day?

If you're in New York City and get fazed by a rat in the street or, oh my stars and garters, in the subway, just leave town. You're more likely to catch a disease from a Wall St lawyer.

My daughter lives in the LES and always makes a point of sharing any particularly interesting rat story with her old man.

In a former life, I walked to the rockridge BARTstation every morning.

One morning a rat the size of a small dog attacked.

New York City Rat Complaints Surge as Urban Life Revives

Did they learn to dial 311 or something? Why do we give a shiat what rats are complaining about anyway?

Yeah. It's really weird. Every single day there is rotting food (and gigantic piles of other garbage) laid out all over the side walk. I have hundreds of photos separated by food type.

Ok, at first I was "oh, scatter the trash... cheap bastards just need to buy a garbage can"...

Then I saw the bagel ring around the fire hydrant.

Sometimes I think a little authoritarian boot is necessary for civilization...

Thank you btw. I learned something different today. You're obviously as nonplussed as I am.
