They have been removing the bad ones in New Jersey, they just don't work well in high volume areas, and for areas where "yield" is an unthinkable concept...

In Wisconsin they seem to be tearing up every major intersection in the state to replace them with roundabouts but nobody understands them and they're causing a bunch of accidents so now we get to watch this.

That would be an example of constant angular velocity.  With linear velocity getting slower as the needle moves towards the center.

Or a way to generate blank stares when used as an example in physics class....

You'd be surprised how many people under the age of 25 know what records are. They're retro now, so they're cool. Oh, and hipsters. Can't forget them.

As for the traffic report by Al Jazeera, they just launched an American channel a few days ago.

I've been in a few roundabouts, and I can see their advantage. But ONLY if they are one lane! As soon as you add anouther inner circular lane to it, I can understand how people have problems getting stuck in them when traffic is heavy.

Good point, I think all the ones they got rid of in NJ were 2 lane ones, replaced with intersections with stoplights.  The ones I still encounter over there are all the one lane type, but you still have to be careful once in one, there are plenty of idiots that fly into them at full speed even if you are already in the circle and they are about to hit you.

I really hate Sofia Vergara.  I mean, not on a personal level.  I don't know her personally.  She may be a perfectly nice person.  But on screen, she is unbearably obnoxious.  Gloria from Modern Family is a shrill, entitled, bitch trophy wife.  Physically she's attractive, but her repugnant personality and horrid voice tends to turn me off.

There are these radio ads for McDonald's.  A guy walks up to the counter and says "I'd like an order of fries please."

The girl at the counter responds "What would you like with your fries?"

The man then gets all confused, like it's the most foreign concept in the world.  Which maybe it is a little off... but he started the process by ordering just fries instead of going for a meal or meat flavored sandwich.  But it's the guy's utter confusion that gets me so much.  Like he made this unusual order and didn't comprehend that there might be other things to order at McDonald's.

I guess it's a little hard to describe.

The new KFC ad for their special togo lunches (like two strips and chips).  They show one policeman starting to eat his, then his partner sends him outta the car to get a bad guy, then he starts to eat his partners lunch.   He bites into the chicken strip and they put in a VERY LOUD crunching noise as he bites into it.  Why the hell the noise like he is crunching metal with his mouth?

So I understand the Tooth Fairy, and of course that would be Captain Smiles in  the superhero getup, but what's with the monk?
