    You should be forced to see a ultrasound of your thoughts before you have them crushed in a vitamix and sold on the frappafetus black market.

    i love the john Stewart school of trying to crush other thought.

    So this school you speak of, is it online? Correspondence courses maybe?

    When your thoughts are crushed, does it hurt? Afterward, are they donated for the betterment of other thoughts? Just wondering. I have to report back to the cult later.

    Though I do wonder the extent to which this will noticed outside of central Ohio.

    FWIW, it was mentioned pretty quickly on a few of the Chicago feeds I follow on Facebook.

    I’m glad the Moonlight Market got a shout out, but the last one was May 9th. ;) I wonder if he was talking about Friday’s Pearl Market?

    He said they were hanging out on Gay Street and then mentioned Moonlight Market, so…maybe? Perhaps he saw a sign for Moonlight Market and assumed that’s what Pearl Market was. I thought at the time the reference was odd because I thought Moonlight Market was a Saturday only thing.

    Classy guy.

    He’s just misunderstood. Often.

    This dude is going to win and Gahanna is going to spend the next couple years living out an embarrassment the level of Ice Town from Parks & Recreation.

    Gahanna is the city that once saw its mayor fight a high school kid in the Burger King parking lot. Embarrassment is nothing new.

    For fucks sake… That fountain was NOT designed to be interactive. Jesus… This fountain WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO BE INTERACTIVE!!!!!! That is why their aren’t any walls. Why are most the posters on her so stupid that they can’t see how fucking insane their comparisons are?

    FFS…proofread your posts, or learn the difference between “there” and “their”. But I agree, all these posters should get off of her. That’s really rude.

    B.) Why have a freaking fountain with a bunch of lighting and projection effects if they are shutting it down 2 hours before sunset?

    It is possible to enjoy a fountain without running through it. I’m pretty sure Chicago doesn’t let anyone run through Buckingham Fountain.

    Who said the CU forums are dead? All we needed is a good dispute about when kids could run through water.

    There’s the noise of traffic, crowds and the like and then there’s children.

    I don’t get why the distinction is important or if you’re even being sincere here. Car horns, people talking/yelling and music are acceptable distractions but the sounds of kids aren’t?

    I’d guess not many people move downtown to raise kids? Not that it doesn’t happen, but isn’t downtown more popular with younger singles and older, childless couples?

    That’s not an assumption I’m prepared to make. Maybe the mix in Columbus skews younger but I’m sure downtowns in general (if we’re speaking about the issue of noisy downtowns) have a healthy mix of parents and non-parents.

    Besides, we’re not talking about banning kids from a park. We’re talking about cutting back by about an hour the play time in the fountains. To use your analogy, less about buying a boat and complaining about the water but fixing a leak in the hull.

    I don’t have an issue with a time limit. I think dusk is probably more appropriate to strike a balance between parents using the park and the enjoyment of the neighboring businesses and residents.

    Is a bit odd. Apparently one can have input into their neighborhood unless they live downtown?

    You should have input, but to me bitching about the noise downtown is like deciding to live on a boat and bitching about the water. Presumably it’s part of the attraction to live there.

    Come live down town, we have some of the best noise pollution around! Don’t like it? Fuck you!

    All the best downtowns roll up their sidewalks at an early hour so their residents can get some peace and quiet. Who wants noise and bustle in the middle of a city?

    I believe our TOS covers that. Any instances where it has happened and/or brought to our attention, it’s been addressed and resolved immediately:

    Hmm…”otherwise objectionable” could apply to just about anything.

    The reality is, it all depends on what happens to that plastic bag after its used…meaning education and better recycling options are probably a better solution than a ban

    +1

    How does the bag compare to what it contains? What’s the biodegradability of the cans, jars, bags (bags inside bags, oh my) of the groceries themselves? I think encouraging recycling is a better option than an outright ban.

    Well, when the Dispatch shut down the Other Paper, the stated reason was that the two publications were essentially duplicates, and the implied promise was that the Alive would continue forth as a union of the two.

    Did you really believe that at the time? My assumption was The Dispatch bought out The Other Paper to silence a critical competitor, and gradually wound it down to make it less obvious that was the reason.
