Re: “RDC Announces Plan to Raise Atlantis

Okay-I had to look up candiru fish. I was laughing really hard until I did that. Now, my life is consumed by guarding my genitalia.

Re: “RDC Announces Plan to Raise Atlantis

I concede that it is entirely possible that over the course of thousands of years the lost city of Atlantis could have migrated from the bottom of the Strait of Gibralter across the Atlantic Ocean and into the Gulf of Mexico and upstream through the Mississippi River to a site "just west of Mud Island." As well, "psychic contact with the Atlanteans while in an ayahuasca-induced trance state" and consultation with the Atlantean Council of Wisdom all seem like something that could happen. But come ON, do you really expect us to believe Linderman used the words "totally cool?"
I cry foul!

Re: “Fancy Art Critic "Knocked Out" by Memphis Pedestrian Crossings

My Yorkie suffered from sensory processing disorder (SPD). Well, no longer. We went on a walk through the downtown area, upon reaching the intersection of Third and Peabody Place, my little Baxter's head exploded. I'm sure this could happen to small children too. "Visually brutal" is an understatement for my late Baxter, may he rest in peace.

Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

@FUNKbrs
All I know is that a jail should be near the courts. But not necessarily right dab smack in the middle of things. I did sit down with a community leader once when I was on a task force for panhandling. This community leader said they pick up panhandlers in other parts of town and drop them off at 201 to "inconvenience" the panhandler. You can see the problem from there, I suppose.

Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

See, CL Mullins, that's the other thing I don't get about our lovely Memphis jail...why does it have to be be in the middle of DT Memphis? The SF jail is in that janky part by all the interstate overpasses that's not very walkable anyway. Who puts a jail in the middle of a stinkin' tourist area?-by that, I mean DT Memphis proper. Though I wouldn't know where to put it the way DT has developed. The overpassy area in DT Memphis is too close to St. Jude. Maybe over there on Pres Island?

@CL Mullins, I have never heard the San Francisco jail called 850 Bryant. Not saying you're wrong-but I lived in SF for quite a while, even worked at a law office once-never heard it referred to as 850 Bryant.
