Snoooooooooow.
This morning’s snow really pisses me off.  I was totally getting into the thought of it becoming spring.  Even on Friday, it was really nice.  You barely needed a jacket.  Then, wham!  All this snow.
It’s total bull.
So it should make this morning’s commute a gem.  Actually, what will really be interesting is when it all [...]

There’s a new geeky duo that claim the title of being the fastest to ride the entire New York City Subway system.  Back in December of 2006, some guys broke the old record by an hour.
The new record holders claim to have beaten the record by a couple of hours.  How did they do it? [...]

Beautiful Subway Photography
