    Maybe it is a serial killer luring guys that maybe like to play the choking game.

    "The first victim was murdered at 32-23 91st Street in on February 3. The medical examiner determined that 53-year-old David Rangel, a middle school teacher, was choked to death by an assailant, The Daily News reports.

    The second victim was murdered at the Crown Motor Inn at 74-01 Queens Boulevard. Joseph Benzinger, 54, was found in his hotel room around 11:45 p.m. with a t-shirt wrapped around his neck."

    This is why when you're the host, you leave weapons hidden in case you need them and you ALWAYS tell a friend who is coming by and if possible send them a photo of what the person looks like.

    Well, that gives showing off your fuck-buddies to your friends a whole new utility. With the dating pool being so tight, if you have 20 gay friends one of them is bound to have dated the guy in question. If none of them ever heard of him... well... use one of them as the guinea pig! icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    Less hookups.
    I have been to Elmhurst at nights.
    It's so dirty and seemingly unsafe.
    The areas under 7 line remind me of Chicago's The Loop area.

    I always worry the dude on the other side has an axe or soemthing.










    Okay, "always worry" may not be the best choice of words! icon_razz.gif
