Top 10 things NOT to do as a tourist in New York City

As someone who lives and works in New York City, I firmly believe that a set of rules, or guidelines, should be handed out on all arriving flights into Newark, JFK, and LaGuardia. I understand that people visiting don't know any better, but tourists annoy the hell out of us and if we could supply some simple tips, maybe our lives, and their visits can be more successful.

Below is my contribution to what this NYC Tourist guideline pamphlet might look like:

1) Don't stop in the middle of the sidewalk. Unreal as it may sound, even though you're on vacation, everyone in NY doesn't stop working for the week. We have places to go and we don't like wasting any time getting there. This is really the most simple rule. Be aware of the people around you and make sure not to get in our freaking way.

2) Don't stop in the middle of the sidewalk. (yes, it's important enough to mention twice). Yes, the buildings are big....stare from somewhere else.

3) Don't casually stroll down the middle of the sidewalk. If you want to move slowly, move to the side, or be prepared for a very rude "excuse me" and people pushing you out of the way.

4) Don't walk with your entire family side by side. I know you all want to walk together, but generally, walking together breaks rules 1-3 and pisses off everyone trying to use the same sidewalk as you.

5) Stay to the right on the escalator if you plan on just standing there. The left side is for walking up and down the escalator. If you plan on standing on the left, be prepared for a very rude "excuse me" or the homeless man on 53th and 5th to yell at you while he tells sexist jokes.

6) Don't stop at the top of the escalator. Amazingly, even when you get off, the escalator continues to move and other people need to get off.

7) Don't stop at the top of the subway stairs. I know you're lost, but I'm not, so move the hell out of my way.

8) Instead of just yelling two street names at me, try asking me politely for directions.

9) Don't go out to eat in Times Square. If you do, be prepared for an expensive shitty meal. Eating at the Red Lobster in Times Square does not equal fine dining in NYC...even if you do have lobster.

10) Don't think that New Yorkers are rude because of these rules. Chances are, you don't live in a place where tourists come which means you have NO idea how annoying it really is. Maybe next week I'll come to your city and drive 2 miles an hour in front of you during your entire commute to work. Then maybe you'll know what it's like having your entire family block the sidewalk on my way to work.

11) Make sure to come back real soon! We love having you here!

Great clip from Bill O'Reilly's return to the Late Show with David Letterman:


Dear Red States

I found this here: http://cronus.com/redstates/ and I think it's awesome...so I'm sharing it here on my blog.

Dear Red States
We're ticked off at the way you've treated California, and we've decided we're leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue States with us.
In case you aren't aware, that includes Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the entire Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.
To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get Elliot Spitzer. You get Ken Lay. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand. We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss. We get 85 percent of America’s venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama. We get two-thirds of the tax revenue; you get to make the red states pay their fair share.
Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms. Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home.
With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent of the country's fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation's fresh fruit, 95 percent of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners)
90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools, plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.
With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals than we lefties.
By the way, we have all the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.

Great Dennis Kucinich video

It's great to see a candidate out there who is not afraid to speak his mind:


Security Guard: 'God Guided Me And Protected Me'

I don't know what's more interesting. The article? or the comments about the article on Digg.

See for yourself and let me know what you think:

Security Guard: 'God Guided Me And Protected Me'

Digg link: http://digg.com/world_news/security_guard_god_guided_me_and_protected_me/all

There's a lot of people on Digg screaming, yay 2nd amendment! this is why more people need to be armed! This user pretty much summed it up for me:

"I love how the fact that the gunman can so easily get his hands on an automatic weapon and a thousand rounds of ammunition is a rallying cry for more people to carry guns.

Does anyone else see the irony there?"

For Mets fans, and all sports fans, it's natural to root for

"I remember back in the early and mid '80s when the Mets were getting a bit "white" under Frank Cashen's rule. Personally, I did not like that, but compared to what Omar Minaya is doing today, that was nothing! Minaya is simply looking for the best Latin players available, not the best players available."-- A recent blog posting by a Mets fanClick "read more" below to see the full article.

Report Exposes the Billions Wasted by Homeland Security

The Department of Homeland Security is an embarrassment that would be comical if only our national security were not at stake. The agency and its leadership must be held accountable for its failures and pushed to do better. This is a shocking and disturbing report. The American people deserve far better from their government. Much better.
