EZ-Pass

EX-Pass is very particular about WHERE the tag is located on your vehicle: How high, how far back, etc. I used to have a "system" in which I kept my EZ-Pass in my jacket breast pocket, and with my right hand would extract it and hold it up, without stopping.

It almost never worked.

OTOH, since mounting it on my windscreen, I've never had to wait like an ass for the toll booth attendant to fix the problem. (In NYC we have gates.)

Fuck you, and fuck your acusation of ignorance.

You know what burning human feces smells like? BURNING HUMAN FECES. Its the smell of a city so poorly managed that people dump piles of trash and excrement in front of their homes on the street and set fire to it. Its the smell of a city where people neatly tuck their cellphones between their shoulders and ears, and whip their dicks out in the middle of the sidewalk and take a piss while still walking. Its the smell of a city that lets dead dogs and cattle rot in the middle of the roads.

Did I make a general statement about India? No. Guess you have some insecurity issues about your origins, and no, I don't give a shit if you're Indian. You brought that up, and I wouldn't have asked. So go fuck yourself.

Areas of New Jersey along the Turnpike near Newark smell horrible too. Should I categorize the entire United States to be like that ?

And yes before you ask, I am Indian but living in Brooklyn for the last decade and half.

Dirt.

i want to take my v-strom offroad.

i don't have knobbies, though that could be a future consideration. i'm not looking for anything too crazy. the strom is a heavy ass bike, but it's all i got.

i'd like to find some gravel roads, dirt roads, double track, doubletrack with rocks, baby heads, whatever...

is there anywhere to go? why the hell do i live so close to NYC?

someone help me out here

So you are just enhancing the stereotype of the "American" tourist who goes to a foreign land and starts getting all judgmental. Thank God that it's a stereotype and as most stereotypes go, mostly wrong.

I did touch a nerve here looks like. Seems your real beef is with your employer who put the company's balance sheet before the human capital. Am presuming you have shown the same bravado aka "Fuck yourself" etc to them already :)

GHO and ArZan discuss their difference of opinion in the alley behind Dr.Rock and Francine' s building Saturday night before the party.
