"Chuck Berry" and "Uranus" in the same sentence is begging for so many jokes that my head just exploded.

19. You still look for George Nieman in the mornings.

20. The beggars don't bother asking you for money anymore -- they have figured out from experience that you're either too broke or just stingy.

Really? Mouth rape a trumpet? That's really horrible and insensitive.

When you wake up with bullet holes in you.... You know you are spending too much time in the loop.

Hey, that Scavenger Hunt is an integral part of the WashU experience. Be kind to freshmen. Three weeks into the semester they won't know what hit them.

A button that deploys spike strips as you cross would be more efficient!! Then again the gangsters would then just slide though without tires. :-)

Hipsters hang out on Cherokee and Grand. Not the loop.

My partner and I were stabbed in the city. I fought off 5 guys. I don't need courage, I needed a gun.

I'd prefer not to be stabbed and mugged, I stay away from the Loop.

When you look at the Tivoli sign and consider if it were upside down, the shape it creates and it says "Ilovit"

21. You've been desensitized to the sound of gun shots and often shrug it off as fireworks in the city

I've come to the Loop since I was a little kid, I'm 29 now, and the stuff about Vintage Vinyl's annex and the location of Brennan's both utterly confound me. Anyone care to explain? And yes, I still have a torch for both Smith Hardware and Paul's Books (I've still got my bookmark).

Haven't hung out there since high school when we used to go there to get rave invitations and directions.

There should be an add about the bench outside of Ziezo being the most coveted outdoor seat in the Loop. DOn't overstay your welcome on it, or you WILL get mean-mugged.

I used to go to the loop a lot as a teenage. Now I think a lot of it is overpriced and clothing stores. S. Grand is better.

What does Mike even do? I've known him since middle school and randomly see him at parties. Still no clue what he does.
