    "Drop It Like It’s Squat: North Carolina legislators ban ‘Carolina Squat’"
    Why ban the Carolina Squat now? Roy is retired.

    As to the thread, when in 2001 is this hypothetical "you" reading these future headlines? We lost a lot of innocence and naivete about three-quarters of the way through that particular year. The December 2001 me would be a lot less baffled and a lot more "anything goes" than the January 2001 version.

    Anything with Bitcoin or bitcoin. The 2041 me will still not understand it.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    I will just be happy if there is a 2041 me.

    I thought you stopped existing in 2017 when they renamed you Mario M. Cuomo Devil.

    By 2041, Tarrytown will be “Patakiville,” Sleepy Hollow will be “de Blasio Acres,” and the Nyacks will be known respectively as “Upper Kardashia,” “Kardashia” and “Lower Kardashia.” Oh, and the Hudson River will be renamed after Derek Jeter.

    I don’t make the rules. I just point them out.




    (And I appreciate you hopefully putting up with my jokes about this — the TZ Bridge is a huge part of my childhood and I miss the area. And of course abhor the new name, regardless of politics. Just FYI — if they come for the Throgs Neck, it’s war!!!)

    To help you sleep a little better tonight, when they replaced the Kosciuszko Bridge a few years ago with a newer version, they kept the existing name. So there is a win.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thaddeus_Kosciusko_Bridge

    Theaddeus must have been a heck of a guy and a lover of bridges, because a large one also bears his name on I-87 (Adirondack Northway) north of Albany...I guess you're referring to the Brooklyn entity, right?

    Are you saying the Tappan Zee Bridge no longer exists?!!! Why……pffft….. how?
    I could have peacefully gone through my life without knowing this. Next time at least have the courtesy to warn me with a “Spoiler Alert!”

    We have discussed starting a Headlines that would baffle 2022 Skydog thread. I think we should do it!

    It’s ok - I’m on the road to recovery already. I’ve just decided it will be the (New) Tappen Zee Bridge in my head forever.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    At least we can still drive to/from Manhattan on the Triborough Bridge and through the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel.

    2001 me: "That's not so surprising."

    2022 me: "Men's basketball."

    2001 me: "Oh, I guess that is surprising."

    2003 me: "Wait, WHAT?!?"
