The T has been woefully underfunded for decades. We're running 50 year-old cars on some of the lines. Anybody who's looked into it (as you just have) understands this. Last year Deval Patrick sent the legislature into special session in order to push for more transit funding. He didn't get what he wanted and now that… » 3/02/15 7:16pm Yesterday 7:16pm

Hey now, cock sucking is an enjoyable and admirable hobby. It takes skill and patience to do it well. Let's not dirty the good name of cocksuckers everywhere by bringing Inhofe into this. Even if he did suck cocks, he'd be a disgrace to the art. » 2/26/15 9:48pm Thursday 9:48pm

Do you think record breaking events are becoming the new normal? Not in the sense we're going to see record tornadoes every year, but in the sense that when we do see records fall, they're going to fall in a big way. I'm asking out of curiosity, not to make a political statement. I was in Florida for the 2005 season,… » 2/26/15 12:13pm Thursday 12:13pm

On the bridge accident article yesterday, people were going on and on about how awful and rude Boston is as a city but I have not found that to be the case (unless you're on the T after a Bruins game...). Maybe it depends on your definition of rude? I've found people here to be distant and polite but generally… » 2/25/15 1:55pm Wednesday 1:55pm

it might seem that way because traffic cameras don't move to follow the action and cars don't have faces so when the accident happened nothing changed making it look like everyone is indifferent. If you could see inside the cars it would probably be a different story. » 2/24/15 4:28pm 2/24/15 4:28pm

I just set mine to boot directly to the normal desktop. I don't find any of the apps particularly useful. It's easier for me to read my email in my browser, I had a lot of trouble with the netflix app crashing and a lot of the "apps" are really just shortcuts to a launch a desktop program. It's easier just to work… » 2/19/15 12:36am 2/19/15 12:36am

Umm... they cited Boston rules and the mayor. It's definitely Boston, we don't have dibs in Cambridge. I've spent an hour+(2.5 hours after the big storms) digging out at least four spots only to have them taken as soon as I left. That works okay as long as you can take someone else's spot when you get home. Some… » 2/18/15 11:43pm 2/18/15 11:43pm

I'm generally against dibs but I get why why both of these guys did what they did. Dibs illegal in Cambridge but about a third of the spots on my street are piles of snow (there's literally nowhere else to put the snow, the pile of snow in my front yard is about eight feet high, some parking spots had to be… » 2/17/15 12:59pm 2/17/15 12:59pm

Agreed. I'm especially uneasy when the internet plucks tweets from ordinary individuals that were clearly meant for a small audience of friends and pours the full hate of the mob on them. The people pouring on the hate feel so self-righteous about destroying the life of a total stranger. » 2/12/15 10:38pm 2/12/15 10:38pm

Good Anime on NetFlix or Amazon Prime

Hey anime watchers, I just plowed through all of Knights of Sidonia and Attack on Titan and I'm looking for something new. I wouldn't say that I'm a genre specific anime fan, like I don't watch anime just to watch anime, but I really like good anime with good characters and stories. I really liked Cowboy Bebop,… » 2/12/15 7:58pm 2/12/15 7:58pm

No shit. She's saddled with a system that is still running 50 year-old cars that people expect to work perfectly in all weather without additional investment? Fuck that. If anyone deserves to be scapegoated it's the state legislature that refused to give Deval Patrick the transportation funds he requested in the last… » 2/11/15 5:32pm 2/11/15 5:32pm
