    ZG becomes a martyr to demonstrate that jaywalking is extremely dangerous.


    Also (somewhat bad taste):
    "Free ZG!"











    If you didn't get teh last one, replace ZG with cat and see if it rings any bells

    A little known fact: in the dead of winter, native Floridians warm themselves on sun-warmed rocks and asphalt.

    New AICP question:

    I a planner with a weight of 150lbs. is in the center of a crosswalk and struck by a moving vehicle and leaving the ground at an angle of 27 degrees, how fast was the vehicle moving for the planner to land at the pictured location.

    a) 45 MPH
    b) Planners always ride bikes.
    c) Rumpy did it.
    d) Pi
    e) All of the above.

    By the way... that sign is all wrong!

    Mastiff - Unless you want to see a Cyburbian high on Diet Mt. Dew go postal, I recommend that you lower that assumed weight in your AICP question.

    One of my coworkers and I were out in the field yesterday and kept finding stupid signs and got silly taking photos. Unfortunately one has an animated portion so I can't post it! But really, that sign in this post was too dumb, like "people on pavement right here"!

    You guys are lucky we didn't do the sign that said "Dismount before crossing bridge"...

    Yo, Sasquatch. I'm looking forward to using your mange covered skin and fur to clean the court.

    BTW, funny line.
