On 'Strangeways, Here We Come' At 25

Are you in my brain? Except it is always skip Girlfriend in a Coma, I've come to terms with Death of a Disco Dancer and can argue it's merits.

On How To Bring A Bike On The New York City Subway

@freetzy This! I hate people who bring their bikes on the crowded rush hour train and I hate people who bring their bikes on uncrowded trains. If you are riding the train, why do you need your bike???

On How Bad Are New York's Airports?

@max bread What cab costs $100 from EWR to the city? It's $50 in Delancey car service or approx $55-60 if I am dumb enough to wait on line in the taxi rank. I live on the LES FWIW.

On How Bad Are New York's Airports?

@Tuna Surprise Yes - best and fastest customs, but sweltering hot in there.

I am disagreeing all around on EWR, I travel int'l a lot and I go out of my way to EWR. The crosstown traffic just to get to the Holland Tunnel is a nightmare, but once through, it is smooth sailing the rest of the drive and through security. Their duty free shops are bigger and better when it comes to cigarette selections (hello Gauloises), the Star Alliance lounges (formerly Pres. Clubs) are better (the C1 location, in particular, not C3 which is full of kids), and I never sit in traffic on the way back into the city, when it matters.

LGA is good in terms of speed and size, but not an int'l terminal and JFK makes me want to weep. Nothing good ever happens at JFK. Nothing. pre-flight sucks, post-flight sucks, it is a jumbled nightmare of angry employees and multiple flights using the same gate. And if you are delayed and have to sit at the bar? Forget ever even hearing that your flight is actually boarding.

Y'all can have the other airports, I'll take EWR FTW.

On What A Pack Of Cigarettes Costs, State By State

@LDM Tie between GB and Denmark. Spain and Portugal are the cheapest - under 3E for a pack of Gauloise.

On Here's Why You Need These Seven Odd Kitchen Ingredients


You can get close enough to tipo 00 flour the lazy way from www.kingarthurflour.com (it is the Itailian Style)if you don't want to do the amazon route, though the amazon is selling it through Taylor's market who you can buy direct from: www.taylorsmarket.com if Amazon skeezes you out. I have not been able to find tipo 00 in NYC, then again see above lazy ref, I can order it to arrive just as easy.
