New Jersey and CT are moving faster, which may mean that you can drive across the border and buy there.

The wife and I have no real plans to make Hudson Yards part of our NYC life.

We view the real estate ads in NY lifestyle publications and realize that they're marketing toward the type of insufferable boors whom we tend to avoid here in the city.

With regard to restaurants, why spend extra if you can get the same/similar experience at a competing restaurant that's located in a neighborhood that's easier to travel to?

Definitely looks like a fake sign. Either way it's still illegal.

I was thinking that as well.

  1. Those signs are heavy and he seems to not have a problem holding it once it comes unfastened.
  2. Also, he wasn't using a tool to unfasten the sign (perhaps it was fastened by a wingnut?), which would indicate that he put the fake sign up and designed it for quick removal

As a PR professional, I look at every business news story and try to figure out who's PR team influenced the reportage. I also look at every advertisement and marketing effort and try to determine who the target demographic is and what the underlying message is

I'm in my late 40's now; wife is a few years older. Some of our friends and relatives kids are now in high school/college, so we've had the benefit of 20+ years of watching others raise a family to see if we felt as if we've missed out on something in our lives.

The Verdict is ... nope.

While we love our nieces and nephews, we love our child-free life even more. We have SO MUCH more freedom, more discretionary income and less stress. We never miss out on a fun event. We take epic vacations to wherever we want. Wife and I recently had a discussion recapping all of the above and more.

AMOMA - they offer cheap travel arrangements (airfare, hotel, etc). their software tricks users into choosing alternative travel arrangements and they do not allow for changes nor cancellations.

Never Book with AMOMA

Wait - this is AMAZINGLY stupid. The guy in the Volvo gets into a fight with the guy in the pickup truck marked with a "guns & ammo" sign on the tailgate. This means he's escalating a road rage fight with a man who is quite possibly armed with a handgun.

How stupid is this?

"Why are you so quiet? "

This question is usually asked by the Beta in the group who - knowingly or not - sees an opportunity to appear superior to someone else.

I usually smile and reply with "I'm more of a listener than a talker ... and for the last 15 minutes, I've been quietly judging you."

As a Catholic, I was taught that much of the Bible - especially the old testament - is allegorical. For example, no need to try and believe that Noah actually collected more than 60,000 pairs of animals and fit them in a large, hand-made ship. The importance was to learn the lessons contained within the story.

The exception to this rule, of course were the Gospels

Are these the "few bad apples" that we are always told about? With these guys off the Force, the NYPD will now act ethically and morally straight, right?

reading this has instilled equal parts fear and determination to continue caring for my health

That all republicans or conservatives are racist, Bible thumping, bigots.

And all liberals are free speech hating, gun banning, sjw snowflakes.

Amen.

I vote Dem pretty consistently and I am a gun owner and 2A supporter (within reason). I also know more than a few Conservatives who don't fit the Trumpanzee stereotype.

I can only imagine the emotional pain of reading this just a few hours after the towers went down

Ten stories is roughly 100 feet off the ground. I think you may be OK, especially if there are tall trees nearby. Check out the Audubon Society guide here:

Yet another way the NYPD abuses their power

Yeah but Melania doesn't care. She's probably relieved that she doesn't have to fuck some old man. Though I doubt little Trump can do it any more.

True, but she paid a HUGE price for it all. I am not sure it was worth it

Are you voting for Cuomo, or the least-talented Sex & The City star? I'm gonna hold my nose & vote Cuomo

Who gets your vote for Attorney General? Zephyr Teachout gets my vote (extra points for having a cool name)

Is this another one of those "few bad apples" on the force? Because there seems to be a lot of them

I am a child of the 80's and I'll attest to the fact that growing up in that decade was not optimal

  1. We had to deal with the threat of Nuclear War and President Reagan goading the USSR into perpetual arms races. Add to this the fact that we were aware that our paltry little fallout shelters would not help us
  2. We had the AIDS crisis and were convinced that most of us would contract HIV and die of AIDS
  3. Popular culture was hypersexualized, so almost every movie, song and most TV shows told us that we had to engage in sexual intercouse, so - as kids - we were always provided with conflicting messages
  4. Divorce rates jumped in the 80's so many of us were dealing with Parents who were bailing out of their long-term endurance marriages, leaving us in therapy or acting out.

I could go on, but these are the main reasons why the 80's were a big stinkaroo

Reasonable request. If a group of Holy Rollers walked in and started proselytizing, they should also be asked to leave. It's a coffee shop, not a lecture hall

Exactly. This is an empty promise.

Has she spent the last few years studying this matter? Has she already gathered a team of engineers who have assembled a preliminary plan to transform the subway? Probably not. She'll just assume the Governorship and assemble a task force and ... well ... we've been down similar roads in the past.

While there are cops who does do a piss poor job and are the cause of some of these payouts, there are lots more bullshit lawsuits the city just settles for because they don't want to waste money litigating the case. $25k settlement is better than 50k to pay lawyers (and you can't sue back poor people whose wasting the city's time/money).

The job basically says to arrest anyone who makes a complaint about something, the ada finds later that the original complainer doesn't want to prosecute any more, now the case gets dismissed and the person arrested could try and sue. Does that mean the cop did the wrong thing? Nope and the city knows this.

Just a little perspective, continue hating on mostly decent cops /r/NYC.

If they were "mostly decent," they would not allow the "less-decent" from breaking the law and violating people's rights.
