Yikes! We ran into that by accident yesterday... The terminal point of the march was right by the north-most exit from the High Line park at 34th Street that just opened yesterday, too, which I wanted to check out.

It was insane! And we had to walk a few blocks opposite the direction of the march to get home... I thought we'd get trampled before we found a cross street (41st Street) that wasn't so jam packed we could get off the main route.

Being short, I didn't get many good photos from it as most of them are of peoples' backs that I couldn't see over.

This is certainly not news for nerds. But seems it is news for non-nerds

Well, it gets a bit nerdier if you figure this is much like Wesley Crusher's psych test to get into Star Fleet Academy... He had to go into a room with two "victims" and rescue one so they could make sure he wouldn't freeze and fail to rescue anyone.

And that is "stuff that matter"

Well, that's a bit harder to argue with...

Well, there you go... It's harder to replace a middle-aged parent with much more life experience than a teenager who can be replaced easier. The parents of the MILF are probably old enough they can't replace her, but the teenager's parents are more likely to be capable of replacing the teenager, so you value them that way.

Note, I'm middle-aged and I hate children and don't have any and don't understand why parents seem so attached to young kids.

UFOs are for real: the Air Force doesn't exist.
