Road observations.

You know those signs that tell you that the speed limit is 20 mph unless otherwise noted? Well... why does it always seem that whenever I see said signs, there's a marked mph sign RIGHT THERE a few inches from this sign? For example, I saw this 20 mph hour sign JUST before the 45 mph sign this morning on my way to work.

This leads me to a few different possible conclusions:

A) The sign means, "Hey you, 20 mph if you don't see a sign. You know, like *this* one right here that says 45 mph. Yeah, that means you can go 45, but if that wasn't there? You'd only be able to go *20*. Got it?"

B) The sign is a punishment for the rare 'half-perceptive' person. The ones that see the 20 mph unless otherwise marked sign, but then completely miss the 45 mph, so they wind up going the 20. Of course, this is also a punishment for all those cars behind them. *Pauses a beat* Actually, that would explain so much.

C) The person ordering these 20 mph signs mistook the "Bob, make 50 of these signs for Boise and surrounding areas" note by adding a 0 to the end of the 50. Not knowing what to do with all these extra signs, they decided to place them wherever they could so their tax money wasn't lowered the following year for having excess supplies.

    I really tried to get the 50 books read in one year goal... but yeah, 2009 was pretty busy mostly sucking. (Though, yes, some fabulous things did…

    Just finished Turn Coat by Jim Butcher. It took me awhile to finish this, actually. The beginning was a bit slow, but the second half was very well…

    If you're not caught up on How I Met Your Mother, don't watch this! Also... I so need a Barney LJ icon.
