@stuffisthings That's terrible. I'm going over there to see what I can do.
"FBI, drug cartels and private armies are coming.
- Fuck, I'll see what I can do."
Hey, Reddit, while you are at it, could you please see what you can do about that Russian invasion of Crimea?
"no one wants you, you stupid bitch who goes nowhere."
What in the fucking fuck. For all of us who live along the L, you take the E from the 8 Ave stop to get to West 4 and Spring street stops, and also to 34th and 8th (to get to B&H, duh!). Plus, for those who live in Manhattan, it's the fastest way to get to JFK (and to La Guardia too!) - because it runs express through the damn Queens.
Yeah, it's a bum train, but as if anything in this city is perfect. If you have sensitive senses, you are living in a wrong city, E or no E.
"Adam: Fuck the E.
The E doesnt run to JFK."
Just get out of the way, tourist.
Ahem. Revenue is not equal to "money you make". It's not equal to earnings either. That said, I agree that LinkedIn and Twitter are worthless (while Facebook is standing on stilts made of glass), and that the companies that own the physical infrastructure that delivers the broadband internet basically own all of us.
@Gef the Talking Mongoose And mine was that Miranda July must be pissed. Had no idea you were hanging out with her today.
@Kate Baum@facebook OK, I admit I was a bit flip. Sorry. It's just that I've found that in my second marriage the very fact that my wife and I have already put the first one behind us is what has helped: we have learned from our mistakes, we "know better" now. To me, this situation is not matter of concern, and in fact, it's the marriages between two young and inexperienced people that are more worthy of concern and examination. Us two old farts will be just fine.
@Kate Baum@facebook "No, as someone who is dating a divorced guy, I can tell you that planning my wedding sucks"
As someone who is into his second marriage with a woman who has a child (in shared custody) from her previous one, I can tell you this: planning our wedding didn't suck at all, and our marriage sucks even less. That said, I'll be the first one to tell you that taking on responsibilities as these is not for just anyone, but that's my point: (both of) you need to be grown up, and if you can't even enjoy planning your wedding, then how are you going to enjoy the rest of your days together (most of which will be a lot less fun, and a good number of which will require a lot more thought and effort)?
@Kate Baum@facebook She specifically talked about "planning our wedding", which is all about who is going to wear what and eat what and such things. The part where you actually get *married* doesn't require much "planning". Even with that part, being married is something you have to keep doing every day. That one-time ceremony where you stand up in front of everyone and "commit" isn't worth shit, as we know all too well, and it's lack of actual value is not something specific to this particular man as he is not the first one to divorce.
So, yes: grow the fuck up.
"When we were planning our wedding, it often slipped my mind that he'd done it all before."
Heh. Never mind he had a child with another woman, it's that this one time they dressed in fancy clothes and drank champagne and ate cake in front of a bunch of people!
Seriously, people... grow the fuck up.
