Rhode Island and the Mass Pike are probably the best-signed areas in New England. Connecticut just likes people to get lost.

It would have been okay to vote for Testje in the poll since they don't have any votes yet and Randoom is only going to get 5 or 6 anyway, I think!

Because there's a car race track there and they want the rednecks to be able to get out.

randoooom isn't going to get as many votes in the end, testje will have more eventually (once it's no longer 3am in europe).


*moment of silence for the old randooooom*

That's funny that we commented on the Mass Pike at the same time...

You have to actually get ON the Mass Pike before it's well-signed. It's confusing as hell to get on it from 146 North; the green road signs and orange construction signs all contradict each other.

right up near the MA/NH boarder there are huge-ass liquor store signs. apparently so people can drive up to NH to get their booze sales tax-free.

although not too many people live in those upper regions of MA west of worcester.....if i were to drive up there to get some beer, it would be more expensive to factor in the gas i used than paying the sales tax down here

it is freaking horrible to find the pike.

they like to hide it or something.


the NY thruway is far better signed than the pike, though.

here's another thing:

worcester.

what the fuck?

is that so you can tell who's a new englander and who's not? accents aren't too clear an indicator unless you're nearer to the coast, but everyone knows that it's wustah/wuster.

oooooooooh.

social d are cancelling their shows in ohoi and ny.

maybe they'll still be sick on the 22nd and 23rd when they come here, and they'll postpone them for weekend dates sometime in the near future!

/wishful thinking.
