Great movie, I'd bet a lot of guys on here are to young to have watched it. I believe its from the early 80's.
Bad Boys with Sean Penn is another oldie but goodie. Filmed in Chgo and at the old St Charles juvenile detention center
I remember them filming bad boys on 18th st near my grandparents house. My cousin still has a picture of her and Esai Morales when he was filming the movie

So Google fucked me last night.

I'm on my way home and I call burrito place and place order. I show up, wait in line, they say they have no order for me. Fuck.

So I look up my Google search history. It's the place I went to... I look at phone calls, it's the other burrito place in town 30 mins away.

So I called them and paid for my order I wasn't gunna pick up. They only made me pay half which was nice.


So yea ended up with McDonald's.

We installed those seats in your picture about 6-7yrs ago lol
Have fun dude, we will be finalizing our January trip this weekend over cocktails in our pool.
Got about 10-12 people coming over so we can get everything dialed in.
Really haha

thanks! It’s more of a business trip but as always I’m making the best out of it, only flying to Cancun because it’s cheaper this way, I’m actually going to Mexico City, I’ll only be in Cancun for a few hours.

Mexico City is one place I want to visit, but have been warned by Mexican friends that its really not that safe. That was 7-8yrs ago, has it changed?
My Mexican friends said they wouldnt go there unless they really had to.

You would be the last person on here I imagined would say "Imma not go there" for sure.

Have heard some shit about Mexico City though. One of the girls in back told her son who also works here when he went to Mexico and his connection was in Mexico City that he was forbidden to leave the airport so I assume there are some bad spots.

It’s just like any big city there is places where you should stay out of unless you know someone there.
You’d be just fine just use common sense and stay in the touristy areas, don’t use public transportation and don’t wear anything too flashy.

I have heard exactly that about catching connecting flights. Also heard what Izzy said about nothing flashy or pulling out cash

I mean Its true to an extent I was born there and grew up in some rough neighborhoods, but really it’s all relative though, if you are smart and lay low you won’t have any issues.

I wouldn’t be worried about Shawn but your average suburban white folk that don’t speak any Spanish yeah I’d stay inside the airport lol

That was the funny part, the woman who works here is from Mexico and her son speaks Spanish fluently.

I could picture him not paying attention to his surroundings though and be standing around surfing his brand new iPhone Max in front of a bunch of people though or something stupid like that so probably for the best that she told him to stay inside the airport. :bowrofl:

I’ll pull my iPhone out anywhere no problem, iphones are actually super common there so he wouldn’t gather much attention from that.

the things you gotta be a bit more careful with is jewelry and nice watches.

I remember when I got mugged riding a bus home from school the robber wanted my $2 watch and pointed a gun to my face for it lol

My son just went with his GF. Just stay out of the ghetto. Stay at a nice hotel. My son was using Uber to get around. Rental cars are expensive because you have to buy insurance.
