Poughkeepsie is a hole, color me unsurprised.

What's so scary about that, it would have been more intresting if they found Jimmy Hoffa.

I can find lots of good points in digging up human skulls. Not only the social status at being famous for finding skulls, but just the freak-out value alone is enough to make it enticing. But all things considered, when I really put alot of thought into it, I'm glad they were the ones who dug them up, and not me. Yeah, I'm comfortable with this situation the way it is.

Hey it's Jimmy Hoffa!!

/Oh, it's been said
//And again
///I'm such a loser, fark it
2006-11-24 12:31:33 AM  
I am personally obligated to post in every Poughkeepsie thread that I used to live there.

//dunno why, just an attention whore, I suppose
2006-11-24 01:05:57 AM  
I'm not an attention whore but I was born and raised in po-town until I was 10. I did not however, move to GA.

I moved after I killed my parents and buried the bodies in an empty lot. I hear they're building something on it no... hope they don't find any evidence.
2006-11-24 01:06:15 AM  
I was born in Poughkeepsie, so hey. Here's the post.

/only lived there a year
//I remember Rhinecliff better

When I was 4 or 5, my baby sitter was murdered. This was back in 1969 or so. She was a mildly retarded girl named Ursula Shiba. She lived downstairs from us at 101-A S. Hamilton St. She was murdered in the woods between Academy St. and South Avenue, long before the retirement home was built there.
2006-11-24 01:33:01 AM  
She'll figure it out. She always does.

Such a small town, the ratio of farkers and Poughkeepsie is just way to high to be a meer coincidence. Maybe being in the presence of serial killers does that to people, post on FARK that is. Interesting!
2006-11-24 02:18:17 AM  
Yes, Pok. is a small city, but it also has an overabundance of famous people. Also, back in the '70's, my mother's best friend, Virginia O'Hare, won a landmark medical malpractice lawsuit. $850,000 for a misplaced belly-button.

Po-town really is a hole. What do you expect with the safest street called "Hooker Ave." Not kidding.

/grew up 30 minutes away
//lives 15 minutes away now

'Better leave it there, Fred. That's a load-bearing corpse."
