Because cars can't drive that high.

I can see my city in this picture and it’s making me nostalgic

It always reminds me of a kid's pop-up book, whenever flying in to Philly.

I can see my old bedroom window in this picture and it’s making me nostalgic

Pa. Supreme Court Chief Justice to impeachment lawmakers: "Threats of impeachment directed against Justices because of their decision in a particular case are an attack upon an independent judiciary, which is an essential component of our constitutional plan of government."

Pa. Supreme Court Chief Justice to impeachment lawmakers: "Threats of impeachment directed agains...

What?! An attack on the independent judiciary? The GOP would NEVER do that!

For a bunch of people to claim to love the constitution, they dont have a very good understanding of it. I guess its more complicated then just putting a giant flag on the back of your truck.

They are an independent, co-equal branch of government. Independent of the Legislature and Executive is the point. It is not for legislators or governors to attempt to veto or punish the judiciary because it disagrees with their interpretation of the state constitution or the law generally.

Leave it to Reddit to have a story about GOP politicians trying to impeach judges because the GOP-controlled Supreme Court agreed that the GOP-drawn districts were illegally gerrymandered and have some guy mash his keyboard trying to say both sides do it.

Uh huh. Except, you know, Democrats have never tried to impeach a state supreme court to keep illegally gerrymandered districts in place.

You don't seem to understand what independent means in this context.

And this our life, exempt from public haunt,

Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,

Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

It would have been a great photo if you lowered the HDR filter a bit.

You heard the man! Everyone go to your nearest library, check out as many books as you can and throw them into the river.

East Falls is the best Falls. Shout out to all my non-local yuppies.

Last day of winter vs second day of spring

Last day of winter vs second day of spring

Wow I didn't know the trees were popping. I live like 45 minutes north and all the trees are still dormant.

Addison street? I grew up on 17th and addison. Breaks my heart my dad sold that house. It had been in our family for 50 years.

I believe the time frame of seasons are changing

Same here! Three of my mini daffodils opened yesterday. I have three hellebores that have been blooming for a couple of weeks - I thought the December freeze had killed them - and a handful of crocuses. Other than that, nada.

We are still 6b but Philly is 7a.

Heading to Wawa 🥖🌭🍩

Heading to Wawa 🥖🌭🍩

I remember one day back when my brother and I were teenagers and had just moved to Philly, we made a journey to track down a center city Dunkin Donuts. It was freezing and blasting wind and snow so we put on all our gear, even ski goggles. I told him that the trip would be more fun if we pretended we were on Hoth's first city founded by the New Republic. It was.

On broad street, we were walking leaned into the wind. In the opposite direction came this very tall crackhead looking guy in this huge black great coat and black beanie sticking way up off his head. As he passed us, walking very quickly, he leaned right in towards us and made an airplane/race car noise of a vehicle going past.

My brother asked, "What the hell was that?"

I said, "That was a T-47 Airspeeder."

i walked the 4 blocks to my Wawa for lunch. it was nice, the panhandlers weren't out front.

I worked at Wawa for 1.8 years and this is so insanely true, our busiest days were the days it was never safe to drive.

Seriously? How did you manage to open the door without them though!?

Holy shit, these kids

The fucked up thing is if they get hit, A) the driver may very likely be held liable (provided there's no video like this one, and even then, it's a toss up), and B) the driver would be fucking scarred for life. Really just the dumbest, most selfish way these kids could possibly spend their free time.

I fucking hate wheelie kids. They put way too much faith in the person driving the car.

Almost South Philly's flattest

Unique angle, I like it

Great shot@!

Fuck, did you ever watch the sunset from Mt Tam in Marin?

One thing I miss about the square states and the Berkeley area, the sunsets. This is pretty good for Philly.

Intersections of Philadelphia

Intersections of Philadelphia

Red Lion and the Boulevard is actually just an active tally for how many drunk drivers have crashed in the intersection that week alone.

As someone who doesn’t live in Philadelphia: what the fuck

It's a series.

95% of the intersections in the city are 90 degrees, since the city's laid out on a grid.

We love your work on /sub/citiesskylines btw! If you don't know, it's a city building game akin to SimCity
