Essence Of NYC: A Play in One Act
Bimbo tourist #1: Anyway, so when he pulled it out of me it made this farting noise, and I know it wasn't a fart because it didn't smell, and... It was just really embarrassing.
Bimbo tourist #2: Quip.
Bimbo tourist #1: What?
Bimbo tourist #2: A quip. The farting noise, it's called a 'quip.'
Bimbo tourist #1: Oh, they have a name for it? Wow.
Bimbo tourist #2: Oh, totally. It happens to a lot of people.
Stranger: Um, that's not right.
Bimbo tourist #2: Excuse me, sir?
Stranger: No, it's 'queef.'
Bimbo tourist #2: Wait, what?
Bimbo tourist #1: I think he's saying his name is 'Queef' or something.
Bimbo tourist #2: Oh, sorry. Excuse me, Queef?
Stranger: No... Oh, lord. The sound, it's 'queef.'
Bimbo tourist #2: Who's a 'queef?' What's going on?
Bimbo tourist #1: I think he's one of those crazy subway guys you hear about. I think he's telling us he's gay.
Stranger: I can hear you, and I'm not... What? That's 'queer,' you ingrate!
Bimbo tourist #1: Here's some money for you, sir. Buy your boyfriend a nice grocery cart or something.
Stranger: What?! Does it look like I'm homeless to you? I'm wearing fucking YSL over here... I ain't queer and I ain't homeless. You ignorant, you skinny, Paris Hilton-wannabe whores. All I was saying to you was that when your sleazy-ass friend over here pulled her boyfriend's dick out of her STD-ridden pussy, the word...
Bimbo tourist #1: I'm not following... Is he speaking Cockney or something?
Bimbo tourist #2: I don't know. Are you allowed to mace crazy hobos?
Stranger: ...I'm not fucking crazy!
Bimbo tourist #2: Of course you aren't, sir.
Passenger: Oh, shut your mouth, both of ya, or I'm gonna whoop both your scrawny asses, you hear?
Stranger: Thank you. All I was saying was...
Old lady: Ah, hell no! Can't you see this conversation has gone past anyone in this damn subway's comprehension? Know when to drop it, brother. Know when to drop it.
Bimbo tourist #2: [Mouthing] Oh my god.
Bimbo tourist #1: I know. That was intense.
Stranger, muttering to himself: ... Last time I ever take a subway... Unbelievable shit I put up with... Fucking Civics... Unreliable fuckers...
If the landlord sells, dies or transfers the property, the new owner is obligated to honor your lease and any other agreement you made with the original owner or management. (This is another reason to always have important agreements in writing, signed and dated.) However, if the property is foreclosed on by a bank or some other entity because the landlord did not pay the mortgage on the premises, the new owner is not obligated to honor your lease (or any other agreement), but they must allow you to stay at least 30 days from the date of the foreclosure sale as long as you do not violate any other portion of the lease and you are current on your rent. If you receive notice that your landlord is about to be foreclosed on, and someone else is demanding you pay them rent or vacate, consult an attorney because it is sometimes hard to determine who to give the rent to.

Scientists had thought that the scarring associated with cirrhosis - known as fibrosis - was irreversible.
However, recent studies have shown that is not the case.
Now the Newcastle team, in tests on animals, have shown that Sulphasalazine can aid the recovery process.
When the liver is injured specialised cells called hepatic myofibroblasts create scar tissue, and secrete proteins which prevent it being broken down.
In healthy liver tissue the scars eventually melt away and are replaced by new normal tissue.
However, in diseased tissue this process does not happen. Instead the scar tissue proliferates, and spreads throughout the whole organ.
The Newcastle team showed that Sulphasalazine could aid recovery by blocking the production of proteins that keep the scar tissue cells alive.
They plan to carry out trials in humans, but already believe the drug has the potential to provide an alternative to a liver transplant.
The drug will initially be given to heavy drinkers who have given up alcohol, but too late for their liver to recover naturally.

Excerpts from the Daily Texan
Ian Warren - Posted: 9/7/06
For many years, UT's fraternities and sororities have thrown massive parties with very little police interference. That may all be about to change.
A new plan, revealed during an Aug. 31 Austin Police Commander's Forum held by Commander Michael Jung, will focus on cracking down on large parties in Austin, said John Foxworth, president of the Shoal Crest Neighborhood Association and a photo advisor to The Daily Texan.
Michelle DeCrane, spokeswoman for the Austin Fire Department, said the new plan does not single out fraternities. It focuses on Austin's safety codes and will apply to all Austin residents, she said.
"Over the years, frat parties have gotten bigger and more elaborate, and it's getting difficult to keep them safe," said Don Smith, an Austin Fire Department fire marshal.
Any gathering of more than 49 people requires a public assembly permit, Smith said. These permits are available at the AFD but require a fire-safety inspection of the intended location of the party, Smith said.
As a result of stricter enforcement, the things that students are used to seeing at greek parties, such as "party builds," man-made pools, outdoor bands, "trash can punch" and the all-concealing black tarps may soon disappear, said Richard "Tiny" Clinton, president of Tiny's Risk Management, a popular risk management choice for fraternities. Interfraternity Council restrictions recently banned "trash can punch," bands who perform outdoors, which create a huge risk for a noise complaint, and man-made pools, Clinton said.
Any group attempting to construct a "party build" will have to obtain a building permit prior to beginning construction, Smith said.
The black tarps that usually block visibility into the backyards of fraternity and sorority houses are highly flammable, he added. They will have to be replaced with new tarps that are not flammable.
The group responsible for enforcing these ordinances will be the Public Assembly Code Enforcement Task Force, which is composed of members of zoning, the police, the fire department, code enforcement and the TABC, Smith said. He
"Any party that does not have a permit should expect to be shut down if law enforcement arrives," Clinton said.
I don't think SnS counts as a "party build", and the pool is not man-made. I'm sure this will be enforced much the same way as the Narc patrol that slows by our house and speeds up to drive past the frat two doors down that drew all over a dying kid last year. I'll drink to that!

"We basically go around impersonating bad institutes or institutes doing very bad things," said the man, who identified himself as Andy Bichlbaum, a 42-year-old former college teacher of video and media arts who lives in New York and Paris.
"That would be HUD. At this moment, they're doing some really bad things."
Masquerading as Rene Oswin, an official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Bichlbaum followed Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to the lectern Monday morning at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner.

The University of Texas at Austin beat Penn State University, West Virginia University and last year's winner, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the Princeton Review survey of 115,000 students at campuses around the country.
It topped the overall list — its first time atop the Princeton Review chart — by ranking second in the use of hard liquor, third in beer drinking and 13th in marijuana smoking.
For the ninth straight year, Brigham Young University was voted the most "stone cold sober" school.
UT spokesman Don Hale said campus leaders don't take such rankings very seriously.
"I know there were a lot of good parties here after we won the national football championship, and I'm going to guess that a lot of the kids who filled out the survey remembered those parties," he said.
Student body president Danielle Rugoff said the school had a vibrant social scene even before the top ranking. With about 1,000 student groups, including more than 50 social sororities and fraternities, it's easy to find a way to unwind after a long day of studying, she said.
"It's such a unique environment," said Rugoff, a senior government major. "It allows for students to just live life to the fullest and have such a rich academic environment and rigorous academic program and still have an amazing time and enjoy being in college."
The party school list is included in the Princeton Review's "Best 361 Colleges" guide, which goes on sale Tuesday. The company is not affiliated with Princeton University.
It contrasts with U.S. News and World Report's annual guide to "America's Best Colleges," where UT-Austin tied with four other schools in 47th place.
Rugoff said administrators and student leaders work hard to help students make good decisions about alcohol and drugs.
Despite those efforts, a freshman died of acute alcohol poisoning in December as a result of fraternity hazing.
Tests showed Phanta "Jack" Phoummarath's blood alcohol level was 0.50 percent, more than six times the legal limit. University officials canceled Lambda Phi Epsilon's status as a registered student organization until 2011 after an investigation found new members were expected to drink large amounts of liquor.
The author of the Princeton report, Robert Franek, said the lists are simply meant to provide more information for high school students.
"It's simply finding that community both inside and outside of the classroom that I think is the challenge for many students," he said.
