New York's Other Epidemic

Tyler Durden's picture

The flu will come and go, but another, far more troubling epidemic appears to have gripped New York: one which, in a post Sandy Hook world, probably needs as much discussion as tragic mass murders conducted by deranged lone gunmen, especially since absolutely nobody appears to be addressing this particular issue. Why? Because, frankly we think the two kinds of tragedies are very intimately connected.

Attention poor residents of New York: please realize that there are other cities out there, and they are willing to accept you.  Places like Detroit and Chicago.

Bloomberg!  Listen up bitch.  Time to outlaw buildings.  FUCK YOU!

Someone with the flu needs to sneeze in his face and then take a wrench to his balls. Let's see how he feels about limiting painkillers after that.

Holly fuck, there starting to jump, the end must be near....

guess it saves us ropes and lamp posts

I'll be the Debbie Downer, and note that those Queens locales are not in well-to-do neighborhoods where you would find our banker-types. 

Dr. Richard Head's picture

I disagree.  Those bankster fucks still need to buy coke and hookers.

Chump's picture

They definitely don't get their hookers and coke from the hood...

Lohn Jocke's picture

We need coke and hookers to be more elastic.

Actually both of those Queens neighborhood are largely Muslim, one by Eastern European immigration and one by central Asian / Pakistani immigration, not Colombian.  You make your own inferences there.

Of course, few neighborhoods in western Queens are completely homogeneous.  Just sayin.

We had a lady pull over on the I-94 bridge into minnesota, get out, and jump.

Her 10 year old daughter was in the car watching.

We are becoming unhinged and I am very afraid.

how high's the bridge?  I've wanted to jump out when my kids were pushing me to wit's end too lol's picture




Clark Griswald: Roy... can I call you Roy? Have you even driven cross-country?
Roy Walley: Oh, hell yes. Drove the whole family to Florida. Worst two weeks I ever spent in my life. The smell from the back seat was terrible.
Clark Griswald: Ooooh. Ooooh, I know that smell.

do new yorkers like bloombergs nanny state? hes spouting off as if everyone agrees with him.

but to the rest of the country he seems like a little hitler removing freedoms left and right.

I spent a month in NYC with my sister for the holidays and there's all types there.  I found most don't like him at all, but some that think there's no harm and he's looking out for them.  I would say most smokers can't stand him, they pay about $12 for a pack of cigs.

My favorite Vacation movie of the bunch. Such a classic.

While sad, the country is full of narcissists who just realized they are not rock stars, not their cars, not their fucking khakis...

You see where all this is going?

san francisco took care of this problem back in 08 with the golden gate bridge and supposedly put up safety nets

Muhammed Hussein Oba'Mugabe has about a 81% approval rate in NYC. 

F them.


ParkAveFlasher's picture

Right, because if there is a single MOPE statistic we can trust, it's "Obama's approval rating".

I have a better idea though, fukc YOUR town. 

fourchan's picture

bloomberg just outlawed gravity.

MsCreant's picture

Thought you said gravy...

RockyRacoon's picture

That'll be next on the menu (sorry, couldn't help myself) of things to help make New Yorkers slim and trim.

MsCreant's picture

Maybe they could just make a certain amount of gravy illegal!

Obviousman's picture

Don't matter how slim and trim you are, you ain't gonna fall UP.

You have to reverse those poll numbers to get the truth.

Can we get that Zames guy to jump?  Maybe take away his hookers for a day. Lew, too. That fucker is going to mess us up forever.

There is not enough fiatsco in the world, to make me live in NYC.

Why dont we put Piers to work doing what he does best.

Phone hacking..

Have Piers hack the suicide hotlines and bring the whole fucking thing down on top of them?

Freddie's picture

Can you imagine if the Fed/WallStreet/Treasury/HFT/Algos were not falsely inflating and blowing the stock market higher?

Hedge fund managers would be diving off apts in Manhattan and mansions in Greenwich.  Hey Stevie Cohen - jump you evil ****er!

jerry_theking_lawler's picture

Do your civic duty....start a petition on to create a law than prohibits people from jumping to their deaths....but put in the law that if anyone breaks that law, that a new law must be created that will ban all buildings taller than the height possible to jump from and know, because laws stop criminals from acting, right.

nobody would break any laws would they...oh, lets say like.....killing someone(illegal), stealing their property aka guns (illegal), transporting them while loaded (illegal), taking stolen property aka guns onto school property (illegal), destroying school property (illegal) and killing again x26 (illegal x26).....nope, if there was only one more law in this chain then all the others would have been prevented.

But suicide is already illegal. These people should be arrested immediately.

John_Coltrane's picture

Buildings don't kill people, gravity does.  And the Pauli exclusion principal certainly makes the landing harder than it would be if two fermions could occupy the same state.  And gravity is the weakest of the four fundamental forces!

Widowmaker's picture

Your sarcasm is closer to fascist truth than you realize.

That swine fuck will likely do it.

Does Foxconn have a plant in NYC?

akak's picture

They were just squatting on the parapets to take a dump onto the sidewalk below, and simply lost their balance (their one daily ten-minute break not giving them enough time to reach street level and then climb the 20 stories back up).

Albertarocks's picture

I did that once many years ago in Hawaii.  It's easy to fall especially when you're as drunk as I was.  Luckily I didn't fall but my log sure did.  God bless those innocent victims.

Used to do a fair amount of gargoyling back in my heavy partying days.


That's when you get up on the roof and squeeze out some turds right on the edge. Hilarious stuff on booze and blow!


Gargoyling Bitchez!!

AgAu_man's picture

Better yet... Move the WH, Congress, Senate, DOD, etc. to NYC!  Only office space from 7th floor and up is available.  Everybody base-jumps at 5 PM to get to street level.

these are generally not poor neighborhoods they're jumping in, in fact, it looks like a lot of them are wealthy...

kaiserhoff's picture

Jump Ben, jump...  Oh wait, let me attach the rope.

Raymond K Hessel's picture


What the fuck are you talking about?  


With the exception of 2 or 3 locations in Manhattan, they are all in shitty neighborhoods.  

Take a walk southbound on Gates Ave from Fresh Pond Road and tweet me from the ER at Wyckoff Heights.

Sorry dude, Benny's in DC. Lloyd, Jamie, and Blythe on the other hand...

Gov't sponsored Psyops and mind-control through forced drugging and coercion creates most of these tragedies. Their latest massacres in Aurora Co. and Sandy Hook CT. will prove their involvement eventually. It's the "Agenda" that reveals their intent. "Problem-Cause-Solution" Initiated Locally-Enforced Globally (ILEG).

These sick pukes need jail'in fast...
