When I first moved to Chicago everyone thought I was from NOLA even when I kept telling them I was from Lafayette. One of my friends even thought Lafayette was a suburb of New Orleans and that I was still from metro nola. ...

In Chicago many of them ride the subway especially in the winter so they don't freeze to death.
The worst was one time there was a guy on there just crying for food. Really sad. Many people gave him food though and he was so thankful. ...

I was really pulling for Chicago for 2016. The only problem is this city is broke. I mean, they got rid of July 4th fireworks because it was too expensive. I think there would have to be a national effort put for...

| O-T Lounge|| re: California takes first steps at getting high speed rail - AddisAbaba on 7/7/12 at 9:08 am|
Many people are confusing High speed rail with commuter rail. HSR would not be the best way to travel from BR to NOLA. It is designed best for regional travel. That is where it's pricing could be competitive with the airlines. In my opinion, traveling from BR to NOLA would most likely cost too mu...

I personally am a fan of commercial aviation, so going to an airport is fun to me. I usually will walk around to see which planes are going where or just get a good seat to watch planes takeoff and land.
When I was younger I used to hate takeoff, but now I kinda get a rush from it. Though I see...
