WWKD: Traffic Stops

Dear WWKD,

i know this is an unimportant question with all the goings on in the world, volcanic explosions, unicorns, etc. but why the f**k do the suburbs have to have a stop sign or traffic light on every single frikin corner? Are people that inept at driving 15 miles per hour or are the excess in stop signs making them inept, over stimulated and dependent? Isnt there a better way to plan cities? Sorry, thats two questions.

Dear Boris,
There is no question too unimportant for me. My readers are welcome to send me any questions.

I don't know how or why, but I think an SUV I saw today held the key. It's license plate said, YO GERT. What do you think that means? (I don't always have all the answers) It's either an inside joke or this person is so wrapped up in yogurt love they haven't found the time to learn how to spell it. We may never know.

In the town I grew up in we had yield signs on every corner. So many that even where there weren't yield signs, cars would yield. I feel like yielding is a cop out. It's for city planners that don't have the balls to just tell a car it needs to stop. Just says "Yield" and hopes for the best. And one spot they decide to put a stop sign, totally and completely unnecessary and right in front of the cops house.

There is probably a better way to plan cities. I bet someone with a CAD program could figure it out.

And that, my friends, is how you give advice without helping one bit.

Dear WWKD--what city has more bridges than any other on earth, per person????
Dear WWKD---who has the best mom on earth?
Dear WWKD---Who the hell is HOWARD F##KING BEALE and what is his zuccini empire?
DEAR WWKD----Does this Howard have a good recipe for zuccini fritters? I had some once and they were super tasty.

I have no idea. Me. He's mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore! I wish.

KC, why does the gas station in DC always have to be one penny more expensive than the gas station in Grimes? Do you think .01 cent per gallon really pays for the extra 9 mile haul for the truck? I think it's BS, mostly because I usually end up getting gas in DC.

Duh Moines has the most bridges sweetie! I read that somewhere. I gotta wear my Duh Moines tee today :)

Reverend Awesome said...

Really? Well damn. Learn something new everyday. I even googled it. There was some fighting about some place in Seattle and Pittsburgh. Both claiming they had the most bridges. Guess Des Moines doesn't feel the need to brag about it.

The extra 1 cent is just because it's more fun to stop in DC than it is in Grimes.
