I heard about that, but why dident they just fix the leaks? 0_o
I mean an actual outdoor cafe that is done correctly and warmly! That corner is very pleasent to eat on(I'v eaten my lunch there like 67 times). Its a very busy intersection and the mood of the area is very nice and alive.

They couldn't find the source of the leak. Plus they have those 4 flagpoles out there. INB used to maintain the flags. Now just the US flag is there. You are right though. I guess they couldn't compete with the hot dog vendor set up next to the bus stop???

That sucks.
Maybe, I mean those hotdogs are pretty good.
I think maybe a sort pastry shop or something with coffee would be good.
Then all the donut addicts(like me) would be there 24'7.

It is indeed an optical illusion. There were two problematic angles in effect when I took the pictures: 1. Where my camera was in relation to the center of the print. If the camera lens was completely parallel to the print but I was above center at all, the building tapered 2. If I was centered on the print, but the camera lens itself was tilted, you would also see false perspective. I hope that makes sense. Just thought I'd try to explain. I tried to center the camera and get the right angle, but nobody's perfect. They're straight as an arrow in reality. :-)

How recent was this? That is pretty brazen of adolsecent children to solicit sex from a stranger. They must have thought you were pretty.

It was early last summer.
I have no clue. I was just eaten my healthy meal of a starbucks frappo and a little box of chinese take out with my co-worker Allison, and these two boys on skateboards come up to us(one with radical hair) and go "hey. " then Allison goes "um. hey" then the other one goes "I'll pay you $3 to have sex, you up for it?" and I'm like "get lost." and then they go "I like em' rough" then I told them to **** off, they left after that.

A truckload was delivered yesterday and again this morning. If they don't start putting it up they'll run out of room on the staging area.
