It's only fair to bring New York state down a notch.

Driver Who Did Fastest Lap Around Manhattan May Never Drive Again
Quote:
Last fall, police arrested Adam Tang (a.k.a. Afroduck), the driver who released a video claiming he had set the record for the fastest loop around Manhattan. Tang, 30, claims he drove from the FDR Drive around to the Henry Hudson Parkway and back in 24 minutes.

@tsarstepan,
I'd say 'idiot!' but that's already been overworked.

@tsarstepan,
The article ends with....

When the MetroCard is retired in 2022, it won't depart with anything close to such a disgusting story

Well, I take that as a challenge. I'm gonna cogitate on this one.

Seriously though, how completely disgusting.

Eliusa?

She's some troll pretending to be a 50 something woman who is obsessed with affairs, sex and the fact that everyone else here hasn't had any fun in bed since 1987, or ever.

@chai2,
Question re this picture tsar. I got it from a link in your story.

http://gothamist.com/attachments/arts_jen/phpDwKLMLAM.jpeg

Text accompanying it:

"Saw this woman on the uptown 5 this morning at around 9:15 a.m. She had set up a cozy little corner for herself and was eating a banana... The banana was taking up the last open seat [and] leaving a smear of banana stuff all over for the next commuter to sit on."

First off, and this might just be me, I can't believe someone would, especially this woman, would be eating, in particular a banana, on a subway.

Second, if she's so superior, why isn't she above ground taking a cab? Is the subway a lot faster? I know it must be cheaper, but she looks like she can afford it. Although of course looks can be deceiving.

Third, if someone asked her to move her banana peel, or just picked it up and put it under the seat and sat down, would she freak out that someone asked her, or touched her belongings. Could/would she say "no, you can't sit here"

I know people don't talk to each other on subways, but this just seems silly that someone wouldn't just swipe her banana peel away and sit down, or ask someone to move their bag.

Someone would definitely go forward and do so if the remaining seating is already gone. A lot of NYers aren't passive aggressive (like me).

To my fellow methheads? I'm sad to say, it's already sold out.
