  1. The last line in the article about Russia's Oscar Wilde: "We should never think that hard-won gains can’t vanish overnight at the stroke of a pen here in Canada, just as they have more than once in Russia."

    That's a wee bit of a stretch, dear lad. The differences between Russian society and Canadian society are legion. Plus Steven Harper has (unfortunately) been P.M. here for god knows how long, and our society continues to make many gay-positive advances.

  3. We get some of you clowns don't live in NYC,we don't care what your opinion of our city is. You probably live in east bumble f*** anyway. Probably some irrelevant place that most traveling people fly directly over. So really,we don't care!

  4. And I'm pointing this out simply because I'm sick of the pathetic/loathsome queens around here trash talking New York,a city that is not only a melting pot and is generally way more accepting and inclusive than any of the places most readers here are originally from,but also from a bunch of bitter idiots who have probably only been to the city 2 or 3 times in their entire pathetic lives (if at all) and those who have lived here for a short time and probably had a crappy reprehensible attitude from the start and could just dish it out but couldn't take it.

    And as far as that reggaeton "Daddy Yankee" or whatever the hell his name is,who cares?! He probably is gay and refuses to come out of the closet,just like all the other "urban" ghetto "artists" out there. So he'll lash out,say a few anti-gay slurs to cover his a** and then the rumors will circulate next year.

  5. If North Korea bombs Japan or South Korea, which it won't, it will have a wave a hellfire rain down on it. The US would fully support any attack. The little punk running the country is going to be taken out one way or the other, and the country is powerless to attack or retaliate.

    Also, Audi, when do people attack NYC on this site? I agree there's too much bitterness and malice in the comments, but I've been on this site for 6 or 7 years and don't recall anyone going after NYC. Why would they? There have been a lot more attacks on SF, LA, and various rural towns.

  6. @Audi-owner

    You're the one who sounds bitter... and vulgar and rude. I've never been to NYC, I live in a City on the south coast of England and I like it a lot but I'm not so arrogant as to say "It's the BEST city in the world!" as so many Manhattanites like to say.

    I'd like to go some time but I suspect that NYC is a riot if you're rich and miserable if you're not. I'd much prefer to live somewhere clean, relatively low in crime with little to no homelessness than to be standing in the gutter looking up at the Park Avenue balconies and the offices of Fortune 500 companies where men earn more in a year than I will in 5 lifetimes... or watching celebrities and trust fund babies swan around in town cars while I'm crushed to death on the stinking subway or freezing to death on the streets. Or simply just being mugged or murdered.

    My city may not be the greatest in the world - far from it. And it probably isn't NYC either.

    Yeah I live in Austin, and unless you're coming to Austin I would imagine you'd fly over it. If you're a traveling person visiting Austin it WOULD be relevant to not to, though.

  8. @ Jack Ford

    Thank you! You're a case in point! Get the stick out of your arrogant ass pal! By the way,the city doesn't use Town Cars anymore,they're gradually pulling their remaining town cars off the road,it's 2013 not 2003. Stifle yourself and get out more.

  9. And yes Jack Ford,you *ARE* the bitter one. Accusing the messenger of the same crimes you're guilty of doesn't make it any less true. I read so much useless garbage and excrement from you people it's gotten to the point where I can no longer act all "politically correct" about it. Get a life,get a clue,and get a blow job or something. I'm sure it's tiresome walking around like a pompous ass with a big ol' stick so far up your rectum,it reaches your esophagus. I'm not gonna stand here and make your personal bitterness my problem.

  10. Seems like you already have.

  11. Are Rick/Audi-Owner/Adam all multiple personalities of the same person? This must be the meth-head version.

    You're the one who started attacking before anyone even commented on NYC, AO. I probably shouldn't have painted such a bleak picture of NYC or the people who live there. I'm sure it has so much to offer that I can't access even in London but people like you are the worst type of arrogant... so to any other NYCers óther than this w*nker, I'm sorry.

    And PS if they're (now) gradually pulling town cars off the road, how are they not still using them?
