I'm the girl driving 10 mph below the speed limit and staying in the middle lane so I can read the signs and make sure I don't make any mistakes. Then, I will invariably figure out where I need to be, drop it down to 5th, speeeeeed waaaaay the fuck up and aggressively get in the correct lane before it's too late. You will shit yourself a little and go "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS CRAZY BITCH DOING?!?"

Ha ha.

That "EDR" and "when to call, what to say" stuff doesn't read like manipulation to me. It reads like a remedial course in social interaction for stupid guys who are having problems because they act starving dogs who want to grab a tit like a football and run.  :x

All the PDX hippies do that. It doesn't keep them from being eaten by carnivorous bridges and it won't help you either.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"

Though it WILL make me add you to "the list".

ECH,
has no use for people who don't realize that speed limits are a minimum, not a maximum.

I fucking hate people that do that. Even when I am driving someplace I don't know, I drive the speed limit, at a minimum, and I have shitty ass distance vision so I won't be able read the signs as soon as the rest of you guys.

The good news is that the highway signage is currently being replaced with a typeface designed specifically to withstand things like reflective glare in the fog and still remain legible.

Hopefully this will improve the chances of you making it out to Portland—you missed a good time with Alty and an epic house party.

Dammit, I don't want them to make the signs readable. Next thing you know they'll be installing streetlights that actually illuminate things.

I am fucking terrified of the bridges.

Imagine trying to walk across the motherfuckers.

Another thing that our bridges have a lot of is ghost ramps.



Here's what they look like from the topside:

They are. Just not in the way you expect.

I would have been very disappointed in this board if no one went for that joke.
