O'Hare sucks, the one and only time I've ever even kinda been in Chicago was running through O'Hare and almost missing my connecting flight because geniuses put connecting flight on entire other side of airport, seemingly??? WTF.

Allyzay heard you got beat up in a club. (Allyzay Eisenschefter), Wednesday, 27 December 2006 15:44 (fourteen years ago) link

if you were able to run to it then it wasn't on the other side of the airport. i suppose not having to ever have another lay over at o'scare is one good thing about living here.

who would even book a flight like that, though??? srsl, wtf

baby wizard sex (gbx), Wednesday, 27 December 2006 16:19 (fourteen years ago) link

i misread your post, i thought it said "connecting flight TO midway". i was wondering what dumbfuck airline would fly 15 miles. take the blue line to clark/lake then jump on the orange line to ohare. or get off at harlem and take the pace bus to 63rd st.

otto midnight, that 'tofu makes you gay' ding dong (otto midnight), Wednesday, 27 December 2006 16:21 (fourteen years ago) link

er, obv orange line to midway.

I think the standard answer to the Vietnam vets / lightbulb joke is a really well-acted "that's RIGHT you don't know, because YOU WEREN'T THERE, MAN." (This joke makes me feel guilty, but it's fun to do in public.) You can get similar intensity out of south-siders by talking about what Chicago is/is-not like in north-side terms. (Judging by ILX, similar dynamics apply to Jersey City.)
