Are you aware of how often trains fall off their tracks in NY? Because the official rate is "absurdly often." The RDM will believe this state can furnish a functioning rail system when he sees it.

There is no set date for the RDM's NYC trip. He and his wife will probably do a 1-nighter some time in mid-to-late August. The kids will be babysat, they already had their NYC time. teatime

Well, if Alstom handles this, surely they can do the job properly? After all they already have tons of experience in other countries, they're not total nubs like Amtrak.

I'm moving to Westchester county in mid-to-late August so the timing doesn't seem ideal. Oh well, SGNYC will have to wait I guess.

We're too small for that to happen to us, because we can monitor each post individually without software. Even in its prime, it was possible, although more difficult, to read every post on SG.

She should shed office at least. And maybe go live in a shed.

Pretty sure that was just a drop of fluid leaking from one of her venom sacs.

I know, it's not perfect. But that's where the jobs are.
And more importantly, it's not as crazily noisy as NYC.

Indeed. And it's actually a quicker commute to get to midtown Manhattan.

Indeed it does. Kind of crazy that all the people going "This might be something more than a blood clot..." turned out to be right. The RDM thought that was just clickbaiting.

I mean, I kind of thought he just sounded incoherent because he was trying to trip up comey with questions that he knew didn't make sense, but this does explain that episode.

I have to say that episode was really confusing to me, because it seemed out of character. Whilst I don't agree with many of his ideas, he's always seemed to me like someone just fighting for what he believes in, in a fair way and not relying on shitty tactics.

I'm not sure if he caused it or not. We'll have to ask him later.

Does seem likely. They didn't have an earthquake before he got there.

It's just like when Cecil and Kain went on a honeymoon to Rydia's village. Coincidence?! I think not.

Different topic but this is why I asked about the yard/garage sale thing recently. See, Europe works in a different way.

Yeah. That wouldn't happen here. Unless the kid was black and then they would maybe get shot or something. That's not an insensitive joke, because I'm serious. I could actually see that happening.
