And America's Dirtiest Metropolis Is...

Well, you guessed it, New York City of course - this dirty city has more pests and litter than any other large metropolis in the United States, according to newly compiled government data by the cleaning-services company Busy Bee.

The cleaning company ranked 40 large cities across the United States based on data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Housing Survey (AHS), and the U.S. Census Bureau to create an informative infographic to determine just how shitty America really is. Factors include litter, pests such as mice and cockroaches, population density, particulate matter air pollution, and nitrogen dioxide air pollution.

The City that Never Sleeps ranked the highest in three out of five categories, placing it as shittest-city-in-the-nation of 427.9 on Busy Bee’s “dirtiness index.” The next closest competitor for all the wrong reasons is Los Angeles, which has a dirtiness index of 317.8. To complete the top five list, the remaining dirtiest cities are Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Francisco.

Busy Bee Cleaning Service is one of New York’s premier commercial cleaning services, but in their latest report, they might have angered the millennial generation who just moved out of their parent’s basements into overpriced homes across America’s inner cities, to only now discover their new environment is trash. Busy Bee does a great job tearing apart the narrative that everything is awesome in America’s inner cities, and perhaps, the ‘City that Never Sleeps’ should take a night off to realize just how much trash its citizens are living in. The report further verifies that America’s empire is rotting from within, as its culture and lifestyles from its major metropolises are producing a toxic environment that is softly killing its citizens from within.

The New York Patch highlights just how toxic these inner cities are:

Some 904,000 homes in the city have litter on nearby streets or properties, and nearly 2.3 million homes have seen signs of mice, rats or cockroaches in the past year, Busy Bee’s review shows. New York also ranks first for population density, with 28,000 people per square mile.

New York has less air pollution than some other large cities. EPA figures show the city’s air has a one-hour average concentration of 60 parts per billion of nitrogen dioxide, a harmful chemical that can cause breathing problems. Los Angeles leads the nation in that category, with a one-hour average of 77 parts per billion.

Pittsburgh is the worst city when it comes to particle pollution, which the EPA says can give harmful substances a way in to a person’s lungs or bloodstream. The Steel City shows a 24-hour average concentration of 40 micrograms of particles per cubic meter of air, double New York City’s average of 20 micrograms per cubic meter of air.

Even if New Yorkers get used to the grime, that doesn’t change the fact that the city is still far dirtier than many others. Take Jacksonville, Florida, which was the cleanest city Busy Bee reviewed. Just 44,000 homes there reported litter and 90,000 had evidence of pests, the company’s review shows.

How they come up with all of these bullshit statistics is the real question.  We are so easily diverted day-to-day, hour-to-hour by this kind of non-sensical "data".  All the while, serious antics continue apace regarding our monetary and foreign policies.  But, shit... who cares.  Who won the Knicks game last night?  Who won the Maple Leaf's game?  THAT'S what really matters.

Bashar Assad demanded a UN security council resolution yesterday on the situation in New York after a Iranian News Network, INN, report in which Yellow Helmets carried little children through the litter of a unnamed New York waste disposal site who had their limbs bitten off by rats said to be fed by the US regime.

Bashar Assad denounced the waste management in New York a "threat for humanity" and a “reprehensible” system against innocent people “that cannot be ignored by the civilized world.”

The Syrian Secretary of State, who had said that Mr. Trumps’s fate “will be decided by the American people,” struck an increasingly sharp tone, urging the Nato allies Germany and Italy “to exercise their influence over the US regime and to guarantee that this sort of horrific rat attack never happens again.”

After the typhus epidemic spreads across New York and LA from lice spread by filthy liberal jewish congress members, Bayer restarts the Zyklon B production to help aid in combating the epidemic.

Immediately the jew owned international media starts kvetching and squealing about 6 million dead "american" jews.

"NYC is the center of evil."

I lived there for three years 80-83 on a $4K per year graduate student salary.

I had a very tiny apartment in Soho with a window and a fire escape.

I used to go to Dan Lynches bar on the east side and spend the whole night  listening to good blues for the price of one heineken.

 I used to scalp the scalpers at Carnegie hall to listen to Mahler and other symphonies

I got a fine education at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences which facilitated a life long career in mathematics.

It was one of the finest times in my life

Indeed that was a great time. The West Village exploding with art and music. Washington Square Park was world class free entertainment. The East Village inventing whole new levels of gayness. Restaurants from every nation and corner of this planet except for maybe Eskimo and cannibal.

Soho for some reason smelled worse than any part of town. In summer you are just swimming through stench of junkie piss. The smell actually has tidal motions, a palpable flow. And the whole black turtleneck art crowd cruising through it like it's perfume.

Alas, we are serial beings and time only flows in one direction for us.

That New York City doesn't exist anymore.  Whole swathes of neighborhoods in Brooklyn and the Bronx were torched out of existence by arsonists.  Cocaine was everywhere, usually in the form of crack.  The Mafia owned the Governor's mansion and City Hall.  The corrupt Wall Street-run Municipal Assistance Corporation controlled NYC finances and had control of the city sales tax revenue.  Only the names of the rats has changed in NYC, now they are called Cuomo and DiBlasio.

"So what have you been doing since math was suspended in 08'?"

Thats a very good quesion. My employer for 26 years, Los Alamos National Laboratory, finally decided that 

" We dont need no stinking mathematics"

so they made my life miserable until I left.

They have an army of people there that will provide a solution to anything you ask, but if you ask them what the problem they are trying to solve you get a blank stare.

I was the second to the last to leave, the last left the year after me.

As of 2014, there are no mathematicians at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

And the situation is similar at the others.  

I guess  thats going to keep us competitive.

I worked there in the very late 1960s and early 1970s and had some good times. One cool experience was the day when I was waiting to cross the street near the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, there was a "crazy guy" in a rumpled dirty suit in the middle of the street pacing up and down while talking to himself and shouting out and complaining very loudly! So I decided to stand there a while longer and see what it was all about. To my surprise the guy walks up to me shouting and complaining and bitching and moaning, talking about suing people and getting revenge on those who screwed him over. In the middle of this, he looks me right in the eye and says: "You still don't know who I am do you?!" I did not say a word because I thought he was nuts, so I watched him a while longer and went on my merry way... Fast forward 15 years later, I was watching a movie called "The Out-of-Towners" starring Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis. When it got to the part where Jack is bitching and moaning about how miserable their sad situation is and then all of a sudden a manhole cover blows up into the air near him, it hit me! (no pun intended) Jack was the guy acting like a nut in the middle of the street, and he was practicing for that part of the movie still in production. So if I had recognized him back then, I would have said something like" "Jack, what the hell are you doing acting like a crazy maniac, and can I please have your autograph?" :)

Back then I thought it might be a Candid Camera stunt or something, so I did look around for hidden cameras but then just shrugged it off. I never dreamed a major star would practice like that out in the street, with no protection around that I could see. Guess he presumed no one would notice him with the dirty clothes and unshaven face, and no one did! People would stop at the corner, look at him for a few seconds and then just move on. I guess they considered that behavior normal for New York City! LMAO

"Well, of course Jew York is the dirtiest city of all. Shlomo knows why."
Patton On Jewish Unsanitary Behavior
"Most of the Jews swarming over Germany immediately after the war came from Poland and Russia, and Patton found their personal habits shockingly uncivilized.
He was disgusted by their behavior in the camps for Displaced Persons (DP's) which the Americans built for them and even more disgusted by the way they behaved when they were housed in German hospitals and private homes. He observed with horror that "these people do not understand toilets and refuse to use them except as repositories for tin cans, garbage, and refuse . . . They decline, where practicable, to use latrines, preferring to relieve themselves on the floor."
He described in his diary one DP camp,
"where, although room existed, the Jews were crowded together to an appalling extent, and in practically every room there was a pile of garbage in one corner which was also used as a latrine. The Jews were only forced to desist from their nastiness and clean up the mess by the threat of the butt ends of rifles. Of course, I know the expression 'lost tribes of Israel' applied to the tribes which disappeared -- not to the tribe of Judah from which the current sons of bitches are descended. However, it is my personal opinion that this too is a lost tribe -- lost to all decency."
Patton's initial impressions of the Jews were not improved when he attended a Jewish religious service at Eisenhower's insistence. His diary entry for September 17, 1945, reads in part:
"This happened to be the feast of Yom Kippur, so they were all collected in a large, wooden building, which they called a synagogue. It behooved General Eisenhower to make a speech to them. We entered the synagogue, which was packed with the greatest stinking bunch of humanity I have ever seen. When we got about halfway up, the head rabbi, who was dressed in a fur hat similar to that worn by Henry VIII of England and in a surplice heavily embroidered and very filthy, came down and met the General . . . The smell was so terrible that I almost fainted and actually about three hours later lost my lunch as the result of remembering it."
These experiences and a great many others firmly convinced Patton that the Jews were an especially unsavory variety of creature and hardly deserving of all the official concern the American government was bestowing on them."
