    Rat hunters of NYC, don’t click if you’re on the rat’s side 😉 This is actually considered a “sub-culture” of NYC.

      I was staying at The Willows in Chicago back in November. It was 3:30AM or so and I was waiting on my ride to come and take me to the airport. I am at the front desk talking to the receptionist while keeping an eye out for the car. I look outside and I see a rat disco going on.

      There were so many rats and they were just darting all over the place! I said to the receptionist, “There is a rat party happening.” She goes, “Yeah, it’s a bit of a problem lately.” Wouldn’t you know, right then the car arrives. I think, OK, well they’ll scatter because that’s what usually happens when a human enters their space. I walk out the door and one just headbutts into my ankle. It just bounced off my ankle! I got into the car as fast as I could after that. I was absolutely disgusted.

      Rats and roaches I cannot deal with and funnily enough I’ve always had strange run-ins with the two.

      NYers hunting opportunities are reduced to this. Sad.

    Welp, so much for gay men. You’ve served your purpose, guys, so unless you have some trendy new form of oppression that’s useful to the Left’s goals, it’s under the bus with you.

      Few animals are as mind-blowing as Argan goats! They have the ability to climb trees up to 30 feet tall in order to reach the fruit they desire.

    My dog woke me up this morning. We’ve been sleeping in until 7:30 or 8:00 while on vacation, I guess the dog has had enough of that. At 5:45 this morning she stepped on the remote and turned on the TV. Then she excitedly got her squeaky toy and began running all over the bedroom squeaking the damn thing. When I got up she had the nerve to act surprised.

      My elderly cat is going through this phase. She jumps on the bed, walks around on my legs and lets out a yowl that sounds like CAT BOWL!!!!! She never walks on hubby.

    Without the ability to express our political opinions freely and openly, without fear of reprisals and attacks on our beliefs, we are one screwed nation. It is amazing how rapidly and completely we have slipped into this authoritarian state.

    “I want you to argue with them and get in their face!” – Barack Obama

    OK…let’s do that.

      I think it is going to take some time for this country , and the world, to recover from the abuse of the Obama administration. There is no reason for Americans to live as if we must be ashamed of our existence, and that is the burden he has placed on us. His administration has all of the dynamics of an abusive relationship.

      • driguana says:

        Yes, well put swanie….because in an abusive relationship you can’t say anything. I’ve personally never felt such a mixture of anger, confusion and an inability to do nothing without being lambasted. Having been in college during the Vietnam Era and participated in a lot of the protest and dialogue at that time, I don’t remember politics being so seemingly stifled. Maybe I’m just coming in from the fog but….

    Any of you with kids volunteerism is yuuge on college applications. I started taking the brat to animal shelter over a year ago. We walk the dogs. I would go more often on my own but it is near the casino. I love poker. Casino bad. I went in one day at 9 am it was dark outside when I left. I don’t understand why NY does not make it legal. They want to tax everything but criminalize a yuuge source of revenue.

    I guess we better lawyer up 😉
