I had no idea this thread would be so wildly popular through the years, as an outlet to vent about petty stuff during your day-to-day grind. I should have set it up in a way that I could charge you motherf*ckers.

Hmm... "Dr. David." I think the title, "Doctor" is legally protected but it does kind of have a ring to it.

^ University of Michigan gave Mos Def an honorary PhD or maybe it was visiting professor... I can't remember.  Either way he got something.

People that charge / plug in their electronics on the subway and let the cords dangle across the aisle. At least sit in a seat above an outlet. Same goes with stations.

If people abuse this by creating a trip hazard, they're just going to put locks on all the plugs.

I've never seen a outlet on a subway.  Commuter train, yes.  Subway no.

Every seat or just certain seats on the train?  And are they on all train lines?

No which why I complained about wires crossing aisles. All vehicles have them near the end seats and some in the center.

Yes, people do seem to spend a lot of time using the information superhighway to "surf the 'net" on their cellular telephones today.

Cord Violation again!!!  Walking back to my place from a bar and there's an extension cord hanging out a third floor window of my building plugged into an electric car.  No...no..no!!!  I mean, I'm all for electric vehicles, but nearly all the garages in the city have EV charging spaces. 

And another pet peeve, I tried to photograph the said extension cord, but my phone HD is full.  Deleted a few videos, yet it still wouldn't let me take a photo.  Damnit apple!!!

It's simply due to their strength in large numbers, dude. At least Cincinnatians come in second in terms of numbers and Cincinnatians take great pride in their city's history and development. Hell, the Cincinnati Streetcar thread has like 20 people viewing it (and are actually prone to engaging in conversation) at any given time. Columbusites come in third on here and to make matters worse, they tend (not specifically on this site but in general) to be pretty apathetic when it comes to city affairs or just the culture of the city in general. They tend to not realize what they have here.

I think the other Columbusites are all over at Columbus Underground. Cleveland, Cincy and Ohio's other cities don't have something as popular as that.

I wasn't around when Cincinnatians outnumbered Clevelanders, but was there a similar issue?

Pretty often I see a thread title and think "oh, this will be interesting" ... and then I find out it's some parochially titled Cleveland thread.

Bellyfat.

I am finished with the word. I don't want to see it on a banner ad, I don't want to hear it in a radio commercial, I don't want to see it on late night TV preceding a Tim Misny commercial.

The word is irredeemably childish. It sounds like what a four year old child might say describing Santa Clause. I would imagine the word was focused grouped to appeal to 'lite beer' drinking, drivethrough eating, nascar watching exurbanites whose idea of a good time is seeing if they can finish the 50 mcNuggets box all on their own while listening to the most recent Keith Urban pity twang fest.

Yeah, I suppose that's true to an extent though most people who post on message boards tend to post on multiple message boards, anyway. I can't see loyalty to Columbus Underground making much of an impact.

Seems like there's about 10-15 people (there's probably more, but they don't use the same names) that are active both places. CU is well known around town amongst non-forum-junkies, whereas people in Columbus have to kind of go looking for UO.

I think this is the first time since I've moved in that groups of people have lingered in the hallway talking.  Sure people can be loud and rowdy heading to the elevators.  It's not a big deal...just a minute or two of noise.  But 30 minutes of the same people that keep stepping in the freight elevator, then back out moments later...then stairwell....then down the hall....then fire escape....then back in the hallway....then down the hallway...back to the elevator.

What is going on?  Do I want to know what's going on.  Can you do whatever it is more quietly. 

I should point out people are really well behaved because of our building management.  Oh they...or should I say SHE really gets involved.  She can be really nice if you are well behaved and respectful.  But have an attitude or create problems in the building and it's HELLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!   

My building actually has great yelp reviews.  The only parts where points are docked are HERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
