Why do the really cold winds in NYC always blow from New Jersey? It is always walking west that I have a cold wind in my face.

This is one of the few things for which New Jersey should not be blamed. It's actually Canada's fault.

Is the implication here that Canada sucks?

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

Do we ever FEEL hungry when we're not? I know I sometimes THINK I'm hungry when I'm not. So what I'm wondering is, when I FEEL hungry, am I really hungry or is it a trick my body is playing on me?
“And another thing. You don't have to "move on" either. Not until you're ready. People say, Oh, you should be grateful. They say, Oh, it's time for you to move on. I'm like, What are you, a cop with a nightstick? I'll move on when I'm done playing the blues on my harmonica, thank you very much.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

You don't have to move on until you're ready.”

It depends what you mean by "being hungry". If "being hungry" means just feeling hungry, then I submit that feeling hungry means you are hungry.

If, however, "being hungry" means that your body actually needs fuel, then I think it is possible to feel hungry when you are not. The usual cause, I believe, is your blood sugar getting out of whack, which can make you feel ravenous even though you have eaten normally.
