I know, I wasn't complaining about that, I was complaining about how slow they are. Its even more annoying when you have to wait for multiple trains because they're so small too.

Every time I get the opportunity to go on the 1995 rolling stock on the Northern Line, I can't help but appreciate how sexy it looks compared to the S stock on the circle line ;~; maybe its that curved shape or the black strip at the face of the train that makes it look so badass as it enters a station.

If you can't walk around the circumference of Dundas Square without falling to your death, I'll be very disappointed.

This is where I get the Tube to work every day - Whitechapel:

And this is where I get off, Blackfriars:

Kinda different!

Those both look quite similar to the train lines down here.
Although it's too dangerous to take photo's with the large number thugs that collaborate at the station where I live.
I've been threatened with a knife at least twice for looking at someone at the station. A few of my friends have been stabbed, it's rough here I suppose.

They only congregate at the stations though so you walk 100 metres (Oh no not the metric system) in a different direction and you're relatively safe. Unless it's into the nearest high school in which case you're probably in trouble..

I don't live in a bad neighborhood, at least, not anymore. I used to live on Jefferson Street in Birmingham, Alabama and that's like mixing people from Bronx, New York with people from Harlem and taking away their basketball.

Lol 'rough'. Oakland

I dunno, where I live it's rich white people and first-generation Asian or Indian immigrants so I've never had to deal with anything really bad.

It's so nice and clean tbh. Even the homeless people are dressed nice.

But then outside smells like eggs.

It's probably the one of the two you'd most likely end up using if you ever visit Minneapolis! It runs from downtown Minneapolis to the airport and then on down to the Mall of America. The other one runs the other way out of downtown into the boonies.

All my mall has is a mini-train for kids that I never even rode. :(

The one here at school has some kind of bungee thing though!

The only time this happens in Boston is after a Red Sox - Yankees game that we lost...
And I"ve bungee jumped at my mall. :D

I always wanted to do it but never really got a chance. Plus I think it's for kids. >_o

I saw a forty year old bald guy doing it so I thought I'd give it a shot. It wasn't half bad.

The closest thing the mall closest to me has to that stuff is a play area for kids. It has a lot of stuff kids can climb on. But that's just at the closest mall to me. And there are at least 6 malls closer to me than MoA is, and there are probably more that I'm forgetting about.

WELL THEN FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GET TO MINNESOTA. Though there's a very high chance my car would be broken down if anyone ever came to Minnesota to hang at MoA.

It actually has a pair of them now, from what I remember. It's also got an indoor log flume ride. And I'm not sure what else Nickelodeon Universe has in it, but MoA also has an aquarium below the mall (East Entrance, iirc), Legoland in the south "wing", a hotel being built on the south side, a hospital and hotel planned for the north side, and a massive Ikea store on mall-owned land across the street. There are probably several other things that escape me right now because I rarely visit the place.

Oh, right, it's full of expensive novelty and souvenir stores.

And they have plans to make it EVEN BIGGER. The eventual goal is to connect the Ikea store to the rest of the mall. That means the swaths of parking lots on the block north of the mall where Ikea is would be removed, almost doubling the mall in size!


Personally, though, it's not my favorite mall in my area. The ones that are part of larger shopping districts tend to be more interesting to me. Like Rosedale, Ridgedale, Southdale, Eden Prairie Center, Brookdale, and Minneapolis's pedestrian mall, Nicollet Mall.

Does your car have psychic powers that cause it to break down when PC members visit you?

I have not heard the story behind this enchantment. Do tell.

I wish that were the case. Then it would break down considerably less often! my fault for buying a lemon, though

My mom got a new car and almost immediately it got scratched by a piece of metal on the road and then she thought it was breaking down because the mud flap broke off and sounded ungodly while she drove. XD;
