Lakeshore Drive in Chicago, right near Navy Pier has a curve that sounds like the same thing. Seriously: the concrete walls are probably covered in more rubber and paint than a nascar crash-wall. I'm not sure when the lights went in near there, but from anecdote: about 10 years ago a friend could hear an accident occur in that area from their nearby office nearly every day.

The thing is... I-35 is a straight road O_O

I remember one pull on Will where I went "5, 4, 3, oh god my cat just puked on the bed, 1" --- We had to take a break after killing Will so I could clean the mess.

My most favorite driving thing are highways with no exits on them but have a slight incline or curve so traffic slows down to a near standstill.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Oh man...

South of Denver on the way to Colorado Springs there is this hill near a town called Monument.

There are no exits on or off, nothing whatsoever to slow down traffic other than this large rolling hill.

People just stop thinking as soon as they start ascending it. Speed limit still 75? Yep. Been doing 80+ this whole time? Yep. Oh shit, it's monument hill. better fucking go 45.

I have a 3hr round trip commute daily and that guy is spot on.

We need self-piloting cars that are aware of one another and optimized for traffic flow.

I mean, c'mon, the future is here. I know we're not going to get flying cars ever, but at least we could get intelligent traffic in our lifetime...

I'd be okay with mandatory autopilot on motorways and maybe cities, but I greatly enjoy driving, so I want the country roads! :lol:

it's no 'WoW lore according to Richard Knaack', but it also isn't trying so hard... so I think it becomes better for it.

That moment when a boss attempt is going all right, and then you hear a clear "ETCIU" and the tank sneezes and accidentally taunts Lei Shen right at the fusion cut cast getting throw off the platform like a baseball ball, and you wipe but can't stop laughing.

I wonder if he's leaving because he was upset MS had to do an about-face on the XBone things he was trying to push forward despite the criticism.

Also, can someone get rid of Ballmer? Ever since Ballmer took over, Microsoft has been going down.

Disagree, for two reasons...

While good/effective companies can drive competition, good effective companies that hold a virtual monopoly already can crush competition, and be the default "safe" choice for business.

Secondly, Ballmer is too damn amusing... "DEVELOPERSDEVELOPERSDEVELOPERS..."
