I can't even tell you guys how much of a Cincinnati thing this is.

Chum are you from Caney? Just curious. I know of an EMAW that moved to Cincy.

Nope. Manhattan townie!  :Lolrun:

Emo was enjoying his ass off in that place. The entire time he was at LEGO, he was daydreaming about his return trip to Square Café & Kiosk.

The Square Café and Kiosk is the center of life and excitement. It is at this restaurant where you meet with family and friends, but also here where you say farewell before your journey begins.

The Square Café and Kiosk opens at the first morning departure. During the day you will be served exciting hot dishes, that are made quickly while you wait.

Mr. Williams was cool to the touch with rigor mortis present in all of his extremities and livor mortis positioned appropriately for the position he was located in. The inside of Mr. Williams’ left wrist had several acute superficial transverse cuts. A pocket knife with a closed blade was located in close proximity to Mr. Williams. The pocket knife was examined and dry red material was located on the blade which appeared consistent to dried blood. It is unknown at this time if the dried red material is in fact blood or if it is Mr. Williams’ blood, but scientific testing will be conducted to evaluate its investigative value.

man, clinical analysis is just so. . . clinical.

also, livor mortis is new to me.

It's a fancy term for blood settling or pooling after death. I believe it is more common to see it referred to as postmortem lividity.

I don't know how you can understand a word of those barking/growling/whatever vocals.

what are you referring to?

We all know where you learned about that stuff.

Does Cincy have a rival? Louisville? Columbus? Indy? Cleveland?

Not really.  Lots of people in the metro area don't like the Steelers.  And the St. Louis Cardinals.  But I think it's pretty limited to the sports teams.  Some people in Cleveland don't like Cincinnati, but that's largely a one-sided thing.

cincy seems really easy going. what makes a cincy townie's blood boil?

Right now, there is a segment of city people who are SUPER sensitive about the amount of bike lane construction going on.  REAL cities have an abundance of bike lanes, you know?  Let me show you pictures of the wonderful, beautiful bike lanes in cities like Paris and Amsterdam.  Let me tell you about the virtues of bicylcle transportation!

Interesting background on "The Nati" - the first I heard it used was on the Jim Rome show in the 90s


too bad this one didn't stick

Cincinnati for many years was known as "Porkopolis", a name perhaps not much coveted by the citizens of the Queen City but justified possibly by the large pork interests centered here for several decades

Everyone knows that one and is fine with it.

Can you ask for less than 4lbs of cheese on your spaghetti or is that frowned upon?

Not possible. No one could ever conceive of such a thing.

62
what is there abbreviation for it if it isn't cincy? please don't tell me they say the whole four syllable word every single time.

If they're talking to other locals, they would say the name of their neighborhood or suburb. Otherwise, they're not saying "Cincinnati" enough to be tedious.

63
chum, local thoughts on the use of "cincy"?

Not commonly used by locals, but they would be indifferent and not miss a beat if they heard it used.  I can't think of any names that would bother them.

the Nat?

Is "The Natti" frequently used by suburban bros? that would surely bother some hipsters.

Is the tennis tourney like a huge deal there?

People in the suburbs would say "downtown" or "the city" and might do so while saying they don't go there because it's too dangerous.

"The Nati" had urban roots, I'm pretty sure, and primarily used, though not all that much, by longtime black residents.

Hipsters in Over the Rhine might take offense if you say that they live in some poor, adjacent neighborhood like Avondale rather than "OTR." They have lots of OTR pride.

I can't imagine that as many as 1 out of 10 people are aware when the tennis tournament is happening. The pics on news sites and such talking about the upcoming tournament all featured Nadal, last year's champ. No one has a clue that he is not playing this year.

But, yes, this thread can be about any town that no one gives a crap about, including Cleveland.

67
i think larry flint was cinnci

Not much difference, if any

Show me where you can buy nouveau liederhosen in Cleveland.

The transformation of that whole stretch is truly astonishing. A Bill Snyderesque turnaround.

Anyone like out of town running? The comments here have helped me find some amazingly scenic routes: http://www.usatf.org/routes/

Running along the Mississippi and by the arch was pretty memorable. My favorite thus far was along Lake Michigan on a road like 75 feet up from the beaches below. Stunning.

Michael Bay reminds me of Lance Armstrong. The dude is basically like the best ever. But, admittedly, he's also kind of an bad person.  So, certain rivals start badmouthing him. Then, before you know it, everything turns into a 24/7 Michael Bay haterfest.  As they say, it's lonely at the top.

No Steinbeck?

Already read most. But I should also clarify my project further. I was more after stories that might capture unique aspects of the the nature of some of the state's people and places, conveying a distinct California flavor.

I just completed my reading list designed to include uniquely California stories. I was pretty happy with it, so here it is:

The Day of the Locust, Nathanael West
Less Than Zero, Bret Easton Ellis
Ask the Dust, John Fante
Where I was From, Joan Didion
Slouching Toward Bethlehem, Joan Didion

To be quite honest, I've encountered far superior burrito chain snobs on other sites.
Are you the one that's all about Moe's or Baja Fresh?

My position is that burritos are good.

I got four yellow out of first four. Remembering this thread, I logged the rest of my draws. There turned out to be 10/21 yellow in the bag. So, 3.5% chance for first four yellow. Of course, the draw may not have even been random in the first place if the colors weren't sufficiently mixed for whatever reason.
