NYNY taxi's really are the pits.

Caught a cab from JFK to the Waldorf this morning. I swear I can still smell the rotten curry and saffron. Really an amazing odor. I can't shake it. I had to roll down both back windows and was still grossed out. Then I got to listen to a 45 minute argument the cabbie was having with someone on the phone in Indian. At least he didn't hit anything, but he tried really hard. We did pass everything in sight.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

it is much easier to jump on a giant rat and ride it like a horse to where ever you want to go.

He wasn't having a argument. He is a Tech Support Rep. for an American company some where.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Why does it gotta be Bobby?

New York is one of the filthiest cities, we're luck Chicago is so damn clean.

My sister used to live in Harlem and that was the worst smelling place ever!! My daughter and I would literally hold our noses as we walked down the streets. The smell of hot garbage is not so appetizing but apparently everyone gets used to it.

Sometimes your knight in shining armor is just a retard wrapped in tin foil.
