Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Northern VA and DC drivers suck balls.


Any bit of weather, be it rain or snow or whatever, and everyone is driving like ****ing Helen Keller. Insane amounts of traffic too. Had a friend from Richmond visit one time and he was complaining about driving in the traffic, my brother and I were like "what traffic?", since it didn't even seem like real traffic to us. Just a lot of cars.


Drives me nuts. During weather is just the absolute worst.


Craziest drivers Ive ever encountered were in London. Those mother****ers stop for nobody, you better watch your ass when crossing their backward ass streets.

Yeah DC drivers are completely horrific, if you see Maryland plates prepare for being behind an awful, awful driver. Chicago probably the best big city driving-skill wise.

Eh, I was mostly just lazily troalling you, I can see the argument for jughandles. The most likely reason they don't exist elsewhere is almost certainly right-of-way and land costs. Plus it is a little counterintuitive to make a right turn in order to go left.

In other news, Diverging Diamond is the hottest traffic engineering feat I have ever seen. I want to have its babies.

Quebec drivers suck.
I took the same picture as Noze when I drove down to Kentucky for a wedding.
I'd take a random New Yorker's opinion on pizza over a random non-New Yorker's opinion all day.

Speaking of pizza blasphemy. Has anyone ever had Pide, it's a type of Turkish Pizza, i was told there was a really good place by me, but didn't believe it until I actually went. Here is an example of what one looks like

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

The simultaneous best and worst drivers I have ever seen were in the Mexican border town of Matamoros.

Stop signs mean literally nothing they just all try to push through the intersection like it's a high school hallway (and everybody lays on the horn as if it means something). And buses pass eachother with literally like 3 inches between them - no idea how half the city doesn't die everyday. Their skills were good because every 8 seconds I was thinking "oh **** he's about to hit- nevermind" but their sense of law and order was out the window like so many half-eaten burritos.

Crazy place. I remember throwing pennies off the bridge when we were walking back to the US and a woman holding a baby was running and more or less diving on the ground to pick up my pennies. I threw larger coins (whatever the hell was in my pocket) but I distinctly remember even the pennies were being run to and pounced on.

My brother was arrested in this town and transferred into a prison somewhere further inland. Cost him $12K to get out lol.

DC drivers suck because it's a mix of aggro city drivers and weak/tight northern VA drivers. One group repeatedly tries to kill the other.
