The Daily Ping

P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

Cabless Corners

I work in Chicago and when you’re in the city every day, you begin to expect a few things. Jaywalking is generally okay. There’s a Starbucks and Potbelly on every corner. And you can catch a cab anywhere.

But once you’re out of downtown things get a bit less structured. For instance, the intersection of Elston and Armitage is pretty much cab-free. You can look for cabs or even call cab companies, but no cabs will come. It’s like a giant black hole exists there, and no taxi can escape it.

Lesson learned? Memorize the bus schedules.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
