Comment The Dogpatch (Score 1) 310

At the corner of 3rd and (if I recall correctly) Mariposa in the parking lot of an abandoned diner, sitting in a rented car writing code that talked to a box on the lamp post through special radios while the homeless ambled along on their business. This went on pretty much every other week for a several months. And this was just at the beginning of when the area was starting to get improved. Fun times.

I'm sorry, I don't know how this got past me, as a resident of Illinois. I've been really busy lately.

On behalf of Illinois I most humbly and sincerely apologize for the frightening depth of stupidity displayed by our state legislature. I suspect it has something to do with the water in Springfield or somesuch.
