The Crack Addicts Are Back In NYC!

They must be! They're stealing s**t again!

Last night, I went to K Mart with a friend who wanted to buy a bike there. Way down in the basement of the 34th Street store, they have perfectly nice cruisers for as low as $110, all pumped up and ready to go!

He also got a long and winding lock for $22, which you can wrap around both wheels. It looked pretty secure.

Well, we rode up to Hell's Kitchen. He locked his new bike to a mail box, using the long lock to cover the length of the vehicle. We went into the Flaming Saddles bar. We came out 15 minutes later.

And it was gone! Someone had snapped the lock and raced off with the K Mart bike!

The crack addicts are back, I tell you.

RE: the photo. Isn't it easier just to buy the rocks than go to all the trouble with the baking soda?

A clunky old bike is the best defense. It's safe if it doesn't look worth stealing.

A better question would be "How could you stand 15 minutes in a HK bar?"

You were in a bar for only 15 minutes?
