i think it's hilarious how they start resorting to racist and homophobic name calling when they run out of an argument, or rather yet, when they run out of brain cells
yes i live in glenside, that's how philly craigslist works, no matter what forum it's in, it's to the point that it's hardly worth checking, and then one day you find the girl that's selling a 42 inch wide unopened 96ft roll of photopaper that her old roomate left behind and she's asking 50 dollars for it, and then it all seems worth it again

I feel homesick

I saw this on craigslist yesterday. It's amazing how many idiots are still out there.

Hahaha, re-read the original post. He edited it apparantly. I've seen the frame in person, it's quite nice.

based on the OP pic, i thought the whole thing was a joke... craigslist in philly has a lot of joke track-bike/hipster posts. hmmm, sounds like another place i frequent (not that i don't enjoy reading it one way or the other)...
Weird. My parents live in Wyndmoor.
And Craigslist reminds me why I moved, yet again!
philadelphia hates itself far to much to ever be considered a great city, it's a shame, i like it, not as much as other cities but it's still good

i don't exactly prefer the east coast, but i lived in philly for a while. it's one city out that way i wouldn't mind going back to too terribly much.
12-12-05, 09:54 PM
where do your parents live
theres a chance i know them
but there seem to be a lot of people on here from this area
12-12-05, 10:06 PM
philadelphia hates itself
but the minute a philadelphian leaves town, they LOVE philadelphia. its rather silly, actually.
12-12-05, 10:17 PM
i always love philly, even when i'm riding septa or at some hipster filled bar, or when some suv driving prick tries to run me over then gives me the finger or when....you get the idea
12-12-05, 10:33 PM
I LOVE philly, but only for about a month at a time. After that, I start wanting to kill myself and have to leave. Can't really figure out why, its rather uncanny how I can only be happy there for almost exactly a month at a time.
It's the city you love to hate. I really enjoy living here, and center city's a great place to walk/ride around -- but I've never seen so many angry (and I mean ANGRY) people so concentrated in one area.

I enjoy philly very much i've been living here for two years and its great super fun to ride around. The anger is best when its concentrated at the eagles. i have never seen so many people so passionate about something they aren't involved in at all
it's a city that's laid out really well for cycling, but the drivers that can really only be described as ignorant make it scary, and that's not just in the city proper, i work in lower gwynedd at a school, with autistic children, i had a parent u-turn and within inches of my front wheel yesterday, i count myself lucky, also one of my student's parents worked for penndot and was run down yesterday in bristol by a motorist not paying attention and ran through the cones, great place for biking, aslong as you're on your toes the whole time

Philly and its suburbs have the worst drivers. I had to go out to REI in Conshohocken to get some gifts Sunday and I almost got hit 3 times and I was in my car. No lie 3 times with in an hour. If not for my lightning quick reflexes my car would be in the shop right now.
Glenside in the house

For anyone that hates Philly, just remember one thing......at least it ain't Jersey.
