  8. Your question cannot be answered by yes or no the way it is phrased. Transit Fanning can be done alone or with a group of friends. Both ways are fine and equally enjoyable as long as (in the group setting) everyone is agreeable on what and where to 'fan'. The group setting has advantages in that you can all go for coffee / breakfast first thing and go for supper / beer / wings / nachos afterwards. Social interaction is valuable and sure beats sitting on a bus and tweeting / instagramming / youtubing / FaceBooking etc. Put that shit down and have fun with your friends. I have fantastic memories of going out fanning / riding with my friends. We have had a blast or two, usually ending up with one person getting drunker than the rest and the ensuing hilarity is something that just doesn't happen otherwise.

  14. Scored some free stuff in my building. Someone left these by the mail boxes saying they were allergic to the fragrances. The laundry detergent bottles were nearly full, and the body wash was about 1/2 full. Free is free. There are some fragrances I do not like, but I am fine with these.
