I have a very similar story.

My rightwing, gay best friend (Crazy, I know) constantly posts on his Facebook how he hates welfare, Obamacare and everyone collecting unemployment is cheating the government by being too lazy to look for a job. It's crazy cause so many of his other friends are nutjobs who agree with him… » 4/13/15 1:45pm 4/13/15 1:45pm

Years ago, a co-worker of mine invited me over to her mother's old house in Queens. Her mother was a bit of a hoarder and invited me over to take some stuff before it goes in the trash. I got about 8 Yashica cameras for free and in great condition. Now I need to double check if it's this model. » 2/16/15 3:24pm 2/16/15 3:24pm

My brother was walking by a hotel in midtown and a man comes out of a limo and walks towards the hotel. My brother recognizes him immediately as Barry Williams (Greg Brady from The Brady Bunch).

The problem is getting little to no exposure in their own city and competing with 9 other professional sports teams. If you really want a shitty location for a sports team, try getting to MetLife Stadium… » 1/02/15 1:52pm 1/02/15 1:52pm

Maybe it's a Central Jersey to South thing. Or Urban vs Suburban. I've lived in Jersey all my life and most of us city folk Jerseyans are cut-throat impatient bastards. And hell, I have a muscle wasting, neurological condition that makes regular motor functions difficult and I still haul ass. Can we talk about the… » 12/19/14 12:49pm 12/19/14 12:49pm

Agreed. No one should be shamed if they get their dog from a reputable breeder vs rescue. I'm glad you brought up the reputable breeder thing cause a lot of people commenting here seem to think all breeders are running puppy mills, etc. » 12/18/14 1:11pm 12/18/14 1:11pm
