  1. When you no longer enjoy doing something, it's time to walk away. I thought that joining internet transit forums would enable me to interact with railfans who shared my interest. Instead, over the past 9 years at Straphangers, Subchat, Transitspot, and here, I've encountered cliquish, vindictive, and bigoted people. I regret joining Straphangers back in 2002 since it all led to this. I will always be a railfan but it's time to walk away from an abusive relationship. The internet is full of evil.

  2. Everything on the internet is a facade. You meet the biggest phonies and fake gangsters on the internet. Maybe I should spend more time interacting with real people instead of cowards who hide behind a keyboard.

  3. They can't just purchase new buses, like the Nova LFSA?
  4. Today I headed to Valley Stream to take pics of the Cannonball. Too bad Mother Nature couldn't wait 15 minutes to rain. I took a shot that was blurry due to the rain (which I won't post). Had it not been raining, I would've easily nailed it. I'll have to wait till next week, but at least I verified that the Cannonball travels via the Montauk branch.
  5. If the MTA can't even function in the NY Metropolitan area, why would they become a statewide agency.
  6. You're right. I was delusional. I once considered you like an older brother, but unlike you my real older brother isn't chickensh*t. Your comments hurt more than anything Terrapin Station has done to me over the years. However, I'm glad I finally saw your true colors instead of thinking you were this cool guy who respected me even though we had our differences. And I don't know who the f*ck you think you're talking to, calling me dumb. I don't care if you're bigger than me. I'm not scared of a pompous, wannabe gangster, and mediocre rapper. It's clear that you prostituted yourself in order to gain LRG's and Grand Concourse's approval. Very well. BTW, I shopped at Walmart tonight. You can go f*ck yourself.
  7. I'm not an Uncle Tom. I'm not Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. FYI, I was born in Bushwick. My mom came from the Marcy Projects (that's right, the same projects that Jay-Z came from). Up until she passed away last year, my grandmother lived in the Marcy Projects. My dad was born in Harlem. Once again, you're missing the point. I didnt' say that a retail job was the ideal job. I merely intimated that a retail job was better than NO JOB. You mentioned that your cousin hooked you up with a job. Not everyone is that lucky. In the two years between the time I finished college and attended law school, I desperately looked for employment at Workforce 1. I'd wait on line for an hour and fill out all of those stupid documents. It was to no avail. I even joined the military briefly, but it didn't work out. By the grace of God, I got into law school. Ideally, everyone from the projects would have the opportunity to attend college and law school or graduate school. In reality, that's not the case. You speak from the perspective of someone who has a job, but if you were unemployed you'd rather work at Walmart than be broke. If only you knew about all of the times I was falsely accused of shoplifting. If only you knew about this lily white, blonde professor at my law school who gave me two D's and put me on Academic Probation. The Dean has made it clear that she wants to increase the minimum LSAT score and GPA required to attend the law school. I'm actually part of a black law student group that's advocating for more minority students at the law school. So yes, I've dealt with discrimination. However, this isn't about me. The fact of the matter is that we used to be tight, but since you want to look cool in front of LRG and your other buddies here, you figure that antagonizing me will make you more popular since I'm perceived as an outcast due to the fact that I don't always state the popular opinion.
