i just randomly thought this was interesting

hi, this is from robert, that guy with the scarf and the black and white checkered coat that is sometimes reading, playing a board game, or on a laptop. i saw that the site was inactive so i decided to cross post something. its not related to the city but its definitely coffeehouse conversation material. that is a stretch though. if going off topic here is a problem let me know and i won't do it again.
