Goodbye Philadelphia

I won't actually miss the item at the bottom here:



Still, the guy behind the bar was nice enough and had me drink this, which was very bitter and very drinkable all at once. Named after a kitty and everything.

I did not go inside this place although it sounded SO INVITING:



One thing about the security state is jobs jobs jobs!



When the Mounties zapped that guy to death at the Vancouver Airport they were phoned for; the billion security guys around here could zap anyone to death - or quicker still shoot whoever was handy - without costly fuel charges. EFFICIENT.

See the funny thing is that if we Canucks had that "Prisoners Only" sign technology, we could shrink our police forces by half or moar! We'd just leave the signs in safe out of the way places and whammo - crime rate goes to zero.

The chocolate stout sauce is going rogue!

They should put them on the prisons, with trails of them leading towards the entrance. Peace, order and good government, I say.

I would suggest you wait until you are safely across the border before criticizing the Security States, man.

Dude, I totally have a Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Mood computer bag, you know? Why would The Man hassle a groovy peace-loving guy like me?

Because that's what The Man does.

BECAUSE TIM KALEMKARIAN IS NOT PRESIDENT YET.

JOBS JOBS JOBS

yeah, but they are non-union, so they work for tips, or whatever they can grab off a tased citizen.

Explains a lot, doesn't it?

You people are SO BITTER. I blame the IPA.

Because you have a really fine ass and he wants to fondle it?

Or bounce a coin off it? It's something you upsidedownies do, I'm told.

That Empanada SOUNDS delicious. And in many ways a safer choice than the calimari.

Some lessons you just gotta learn in real time.

The sauce for it was nicer than the item itself, which turned out to be sort of undifferentiated mild mush in texture and in flavour.

Locust Street seems like a dangerous neighbourhood. Last night, in the next block:
Police say they're looking for two men in the robbery. One of them is a tall, thin guy wearing a green dress who went through the booth looking for cash but found a safe instead.
The other man, described as having dreadlocks and estimated to be 250 pounds, can then be seen in the video going through the pockets of the parking lot attendant he'd just beaten to badly-bleeding unconsciousness and nearly to death.

Good you didn't go in.

My younger brother (who left Philadelphia for college and other stuff) says he got mugged three times when living there. That's sort of a lot for a teenager.
