Beware The Warmth of Spring!


I just saw this on Drudge - "200+ Teens Storm Philly Streets".

As someone who spent many years in the original City of Bro Love, it was just yesterday when the temperature hit 80 degrees that I remarked, "I wouldn't want to be on the streets of Philadelphia today - the first warm day of spring."

That's how it's always been.  Once a buddy and I were caught in ungentrified North Philly on such an early warm spring day.  We were driving back from a round of golf in his *gay* little Alfa Romeo convertible, two UPenn students,...

Well we tried to take a shortcut over to Broad St and well, we practically pooped our pants.  In fact we started running stop signs and red lights because we were petrified to stop at populated *corners*.

About 90% of my business day is spent in areas where my head is on a swivel. Stop signs mean nothing to me at all.

Could someone explain this to a Central European, because I'm like WTF?

That's not what a swivel-head is!

Have you seen "The Wire"?

Basically all the thugs are all over the streets at this time. And they are looking to mess with anyone.

One guy I know in Philly pulled up to a stop sign where a car was ahead of him. Another car came right behind him and stopped real close, pinching him in. They got out of both cars, pulled guns, and carjacked him.

This is why not only do you not stop at intersections. If there is a car in front of you, you don't pull right up behind it and fall into this standard trap.

Worse than losing the car and almost getting probably trying to walk home somehow through that area!
