7/12    Does anyone know what happened near the San Mateo Bridge toll plaza
        around 8am?  All lanes except the carpool lane were blocked.  I was
        half asleep on a shuttle and I couldn't see it fast enough.
        \_ The only thing worse than looky-loos slowing down traffic is a LL
           sitting half asleep on a bus posting to the motd about it.  Who
           \_ But the shuttle is free and it's public.
           \_ But the shuttle is free and it's open to public.
           \_ obviously one person does, so shut your ass.
              \_ Yes just like thousands of other idiots slow to a crawl when
                 they see someone on the side with a flat tire.  Stupid
                 gawkers.  Your reply is just "one idiot thinks its important
                 so it must be important".  Stalled truck.  Jesus F. Christ
                 on a stick, save us from this stupidity.
                 \_ I don't slow down or look when I drive, and I hate drivers
                    who do and I honk at them.  I only look when I'm a
        \_ Stalled truck.
           \_ Thanks.

9/18    The Space Shuttle Endeavour is doing a fly over of Nasa Ames on Friday: []
        \_ They have reached their cap on car passes!  Ahh!  I wish I heard
           about this earlier! :-(
        \_ I saw it above HW 101 in San Mateo this morning.  I wonder how many
           people in the Bay Area watched it (the real thing, not a broadcast.)

3/9     "First amateur video of Challenger shuttle explosion revealed" (
        Given that the explosion occured so far up in the sky, why was the
        "boom" sound heard at the same time as the visual explosion?  Shouldn't
        there have been a couple seconds of delay?
        \_ Wake up, sheeple!

        NASA keeps air safety data private to avoid public panic.
        \_ If we give people real things to worry about, they might stop
           caring about the War on Terrah.
        \_ NASA?  Shouldn't FAA be doing this?
           \_ NASA = Nat'l _Aeronautics_ and Space Administration.

        "... the jam between Beijing and Jining city had given birth to a
        mini-economy ..."
        And we think traffic in L.A. is bad.
        \_ Actually those of us who have travelled don't.

2/10    Does anyone have an authoritative URL that shows the % of people
        in the Bay Area who commute via foot, bike, car, BART, and Caltrains?
        In particular I'd like to look at trend as well.
        \_ has some.  -tom
        \_ Guys, guys, guys, I asked a simple question. What % of Bay Area
           traffic goes to autos, bikes, foot, BART, and Caltrain? I'm

7/20    Do people not know that the only place where there is no speed
        limit is on a freeway onramp?  Which means that it is the entrant
        driver's job to speed up and get in past the existing traffic?
        \_ The ones who can't accelerate are in SUVs
           \_ True.  My 2nd-gen Prius (not the 2010) accelerates on the
              on-ramps fine.  -- !OP
