"New York kinda scares me. And San Francisco is great but too cold."
Future Los Angeles Resident
Where the hell are you now, R18?
New York is NOT the bastion of sophistication it's purported to be.
Uh, r19, yes it is. I don't live there and rarely visit anymore, but is a bastion of sophistication. And style. And art.
I just blew my paycheck at H&M. They have really high quality clothes, so it's worth the 3 hour drive to Peoria.
I don't understand why all the gay men in NY were so unpopular in high school?
Oh how I wish we had a Magnolia Bakery in the Pick 'N Save strip mall on rte 35.
You pay THAT MUCH for this shitty apartment?!!?!?
R24, I think it would be more like, "You pay that much for an apartment? Why bless your heart..."
Don't let the bed bugs bite!
My partner and I are celebrating my promotion to the middle management of my company so I decided to take him to a fancy dinner at P.F. Chang's. Any recommendations? Favorites? What if I don't like spicy food or strange ingredients such as shiitake mushrooms or bean sprouts? Would the waiter bring me some cheese to put on top of the noodles and do they do ice tea refills? Oh, and I am not good with chopsticks. Do they provide cutlery or should I specifically ask for it?
I'm moved here from Staten Island ...
I don't want to travel. Why travel when you've got the Travel Channel, Netflix and the internet? I can see it all on my HDTV!
You haven't been to the opera or the museums or the theater or the ballet in the last four years, but you know a lot about TV. So why exactly are you talking about the cultural advantages of living here?
Mother gave me her complete set of Gone with the Wind collector's plates. She knew I was the only one who would really appreciate them.
Why is the bathtub in the kitchen?
I love my yard. The garden tomatoes are wonderful! Next week we're putting in a pool!
DL-NYers are obviously the bottom of the barrel in an otherwise fine city.
You're earrings are Fabulous
you're caftans DiVine!
[quote]Why is the bathtub in the kitchen?
Those exist in old NY apartments! I saw it once in an otherwise very decent apartment in the W 70s. This was about 10 years ago.
Elitists like OP and the others on this thread are the reason why terrorists aim for NYC.
r10, is this a valid 'oh,dear'?
Which is odd because you omitted punctuation.
*click* "Hole presentation: bruised and watery with acne haunches"
*click* "Fat - in panties"
R38, I am just a Flyover Queen, what would I know?
"golly gee! i wish i was 42 and living with two roommates in a walk-up studio apartment and working as a waiter! i mean, it would be so fabulous. i would be in NEW YORK!"
Why would anyone pay $3k/mo in rent to live somewhere with shit weather?? NO THANKS.
I really don't get the defensiveness of the rest of you. Sorry, we in the flyover states ARE different. Have a sense of humor about yourselves.
Gays who collect Gone with the Wind crap.
Gays who collect all things Disney and go once a year.
Gays of a certain age who have decorated their 1930s wooden bungalow in Louis XV.
Gays and the Masons, Eastern Star, Rainbow Girls.
Gays and County Fairs
Gays and 4H club
Interior decorators that are married with kids, but need lead Dr Scholls to keep them from flitting away.
Gays with Christmas sweaters and cord trousers embroidered with snowmen and Christmas trees.
Damn, can't we laugh at ourselves?
Way to stereotype, R43. I'm not sure who you're associating with, but I've never met any of the people you just described.
R44, and of course your personal experience is everything. I have known all of those people. The do exist.
And the Disney gays, are not few and far between. I have know several gay guys and couple who live for all thing Disney. Their homes are Disney in every room. They go to Disney resorts and on Disney cruises.
The Masons, may be a bit geography specific, but I have found this in both IN and MI.
Gays and Christmas sweaters? You have never experienced this? Ever? Really?
Basically, lighten up. Some stereo types as true. Get over it.
Must be an elder thing, R45.
Right, OP, because that only happens in flyover states.
[quote]The Masons, may be a bit geography specific, but I have found this in both IN and MI.
Isn't that a little like the Dorothy Parker quotation: "She ran the gamut of emotions from A to B"?
Too many on this thread (including "Evansville, IN") are confusing geography with class. "Flyover" is simply the wrong category for these distinctions. That's why we get R44's confusion vs. R45's vehement conviction, when both are presumably representing a "flyover" point of view.
r43, there's a difference between "laughing at yourself" and "playing up to DL-NYers' irksome, queeny, self-congratulatory stereotypes."
Things Flyover Queens Say:
"Damn, I'm so thankful that I don't live in New York or L.A. - I can breathe fresh air, walk around without bumping into rude people every third step, and I don't have to deal with superficial, self-serving cunts every minute of the fucking day."
Those Steubenville boys are so cute! I would've found them not guilty! That girl was a slut anyway.
LA Disney queen checking in--an hour from Disneyland (if traffic's ok). Season passholder too. Suck it snooty bitches!
R52= a very proud Minnie Mouse.
I play the organ at church every other Sunday. The little old ladies are always asking me when I'm going to settle down. I just smile. They don't have a clue. Besides, I wouldn't want to embarrass mother.
I hate to burst yourrbubble, but you do know that Disneyland is infested with huge roaches, don't you?
The Pirates of the Caribbean especially. Roaches are now frequently seen walking on the top of the seats in front of guests. Often hitching a ride on people's hair. the warm, moist, dark environment has made POTC giant-roach central.
Disneyland fumigates as much as possible and sometimes you will smell the pesticide if you ride in the morning.
The It's a Small world is the other giant-roach infested ride that has left guests stunned by the boldness of said roaches. These roaches are actually waiting for you on the seat! They will also crawl up your pant leg in a desperate attempt to get away from the repetitive singing.
I hope you enjoy your stay at Disneyland, the World's Happiest Place!
Disney is disgusting. The last thing on earth I want to do is be around ten thousand screaming, germ-spreading, unruly children. Fuck to the no.
R50 you forgot the advantage of being able to travel instead of spending that money on an expensive apartment.
Most families cannot afford to take their children there. It very expensive, and they don't allow guests to bring in any food.
What you see are mostly adults and teenagers. Recently, the guests have become overwhelmingly obese and Latino. No one is allowed to run around let alone act unruly. Many of the rides are temporarily inoperable due to the obesity of the guests.
The Disneyland Hotel is so infested with giant roaches--I'm talking nuclear here--that guests are seeking reservations in nearby cities.
If one is squeamich about bugs I suggest one stay on rides that are outdoors only and cannot accomodate bugs.
I say this because if you jump up in fright you may be DECAPITATED.
The shows at the Sheboygan Community Dinner Theatre are Broadway quality! And not nearly as expensive!
I love your new Dockers. Is that a new color?
It gets battered.
R43 sounds like a more level-headed guy than most of the men I meet in NYC.
I have a 5 acre "compound" with a spectacular view of the Atlanta skyline. In the summer I grow tomatoes, corn, yellow squash, lettuce, carrots and scallions, among other things. I have an herb garden in big pots. I have a little barn and a chicken coop. Twenty chickens. I barter the excess eggs to my neighbor's restaurant.
Last summer, the zoning review board finally OK'd me building a garage. It will be big enough to house my cars, and space for a car repair shop. It will eventually pay for itself.
I know none of you NYC people have what I have, or even want what I have. I know I sure don't want what YOU have.
The other day, I turned over the soil in the garden for the first time this year. The dirt is black. My flyover friends will confirm how good turned over dirt smells.
California is awful and SF is a complete shithole where the wall to wall homeless fling their feces at those poor unsuspecting tourist victims. "Louisville" is so much more exciting.
[quote] "Louisville" is so much more exciting.
Only if you are brain dead. But, hey, it feels good to laugh again.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
