Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I was at this rooftop party and everyone was acting drunk and leery and I was just feeling really down about my generation and about cities and about everything really.

I leaned over the edge, resting my head on the railing and just letting out a slow sigh when I saw this scene.

So I'd just like to dedicate this photo to the guy who had to throw all his belongings out because of bed bugs. You could've just tossed your mattress into the alley, but you took the time to spray-paint a warning message on it. Thanks man.

    What is up with bedbugs these days? I keep seeing reports on 60 minutes about hotels! Yuck!
    Try not to get down on the 20 somethings, we all had our "issues" and still do. Please, we can't even make this country run properly anymore. "sigh"
