If any of you haven't heard, the G20 started in Pittsburgh today. Previous G20 meetings have resulted in protests and physical response by police. It looks like this one will end in the same way, as the police have already started using tear gas on protestors.

Discuss the G20, or if you live in Pittsburgh, what you are doing to avoid the madness. I'm staying at my friends house in Robinson until this whole mess is over.

What is this G20? I live in Philly and I don't even know what you're talking about.
I will stand by all this drinking if it helps me through these days,
It takes a long time just to get this all straight.

I plan on replacing every tear gas bomb with laughing gas.

I've been trying to follow the news, apparently a bunch of protesters smashed windows in Bloomfield. Hopefully nothing gets too out of hand.

Yeah, I just got back from the Schenley Plaza which is where the protesters were pushed back. It was super lame, there were very few people protesting. Also, I spoke with someone and he said that apparently there were only about 20-30 protesters and the rest were mostly just college students when the police fired the tear gas. They fired it into the wind and it blew back at them

The police were running shit. Oh, and there was some terrible B.O.

I live outside the city (north hills ) so it doesn't really matter at all, but I'm already sick of hearing about it

I was rolling a cigarette when I noticed a tiny spider on the inside of my rizla. I quickly lobbed some tobacco on top, rolled up, and smoked that bitch. Felt pretty bad after.

The police really seemed to have the situation under control. Again, there were very few actual protesters. Most people were just college students waiting around for something to happen and snapping photographs. I did hear the people marching from Lawrenceville had smashed up some windows like pricks but that's it.
