  • Are you sure this wasn't Florida?
  • Dear Rest of the country :

    Most of the northeast gets by with four-lane highways.
  • Weenies!
    Here in Minneapolice, we just drop sections of the I-35 into the Mississippi at rush hour for the fun.

    Wow.

    Dear Northeast,

    The rest of the country doesn't like you. Or your tiny highways.

    P.S. We won't even bother to mention how one of our two rivers vastly outsizes all of your rivers put together!
  • I somehow missed it this morning, I didn't know they were going to do it and I live really close. Good thing they'll have to do it 2 more times to get the rest of it down. Maybe I'll be able to make it to one of those.

    Now the old 115 bridge explosion was cool! They took that one down all at once.

    The only problem is, that bridge takes something like 4/3rds of the cross-river traffic for the whole country.

    I dropped acid and watched them implode a building once.

  • That's one way to keep the people of St. Charles out of St. Louis.

    University City here. And just kidding.

    Sort of.
  • Let me know when it includes Texas, Mississippi and Alabama
    THEN I WILL PARTY!
  • Wasn't this supposed to be in the 3rd Atlas Shrugged movie?

    That's ok, at least when ours flood they aren't the equivalent of spilling a pitcher of water on a pool table. Also we pretty much already figured out most of the places we shouldn't build houses in case of '100 year flood events'.
  • I should add, the Atlantic Coast is on their own, because for some reason beaches turn off the logic center in some people that controls the desire to have a safe residence.
  • I guess the 370 bridge is going to become a bit busier.

    I remember when growing up in the 70s that St. Peters was way the fark out in the boondocks.

    It's more like the opposite. :p

    Although I will say, traffic has been moving pretty smoothly through that construction zone.
  • Lovely, and I gotta go to Earth City tomorrow to drop off a package.

    /thank jeebus for the page avenue extension...

    Both 370 and the Page Avenue Extension (364) have been getting more traffic to try to direct the traffic away from I-70.

    Apparently this project is supposed to last for a year so I better get comfy.

    That's a little cold even for fark.

    /and it was hardly a section - it was the whole damn thing

    He typed minneapolice, so it's not like you're dealing with intellectual dynamite.

    I've been trying to find a decent route to get from Harvester to Boschertown that doesn't take an hour or force myself through 100 stop signs. 370 has been a parking lot in the morning about 4 out of 5 days a week lately. 94 has never improved in the last 16 years (even after widening it and removing some stoplights) I've lived here. Taking 364 to Arena forces me through the parts of St. Charles that I hate because of the old people leaving the casino (it'll probably be tons worse tomorrow because its the last day the Hostess store will be open). There are various other routes to get there that I haven't explored yet. What used to take 30 minutes is now up to an hour.

    By the time I get it figured out, it'll be done and over with. But, that's traffic in St. Louis!

    Dems fightin woids!

    Mainer(ah) here. You're dumb. (but you are from Mississippi, so we all kind of knew that already)

    Mississippi is EXACTLY 1,520 square miles of water (lakes and rivers). (We call those colored words a link, Go ahead and click it.dummy. I know I know, colored means a WHOLE nother thing where you live...)

    Maine alone has EXACTLY 4,523 square miles of water.

    Now, assuming you can count to more than 20 with your socks off, 4,523 is BIGGER than 1,520. I believe you used the term 'vastly outsizes'. Do you know what that means?

    vast
    [vast, vahst] Show IPA adjective, vast·er, vast·est, noun
    adjective
    1.
    of very great area or extent; immense: the vast reaches of outer space.
    2.
    of very great size or proportions; huge; enormous: vast piles of rubble left in the wake of the war.
    3.
    very great in number, quantity, amount, etc.: vast sums of money.


    which one of those meanings supports your claim that 1,520 'vastly outsizes' 4,523? Dont forget, we haven't even started to add MA, VT, NH, CT, RI..

    I think we're done here. Now keep your piehole shut when grown ups are talking.
  • For nearly a year, what had been five lanes of traffic each way are being squeezed into three on the unaffected eastbound structure, with a lowered speed limit.

    That's pretty good by St. Louis standards. Constricting 8 lanes down to 1 is more common.
