I like driving in Canada. The signs tell you exactly how many "demerits" you will receive for speeding, based on how far over the speed limit you are driving. I always wonder what would happen if I got pulled over and sent to the principal's office.

Huh? Fried Chicken from Kentucky?
BTW, there ain't no championships in hockey.
Adam, the signs are so you know how fast you can go without losing your license and whether or not you'll need an additional job to pay the fine if you get caught. They'e quite handy.
Then again, I'm not really sure if speeding tickets are actually issued up here or not... you woulda thunk you'd get one for doing 100+ over the limit down to Toronto and back when you find out at 4:00pm that you don't have your film yet for the 6pm show.

Weird stuff from the road ...
Once while driving through the back-end of Texas, I got a stupid answer to what I now realize was an EXTREMELY stupid question.
While driving through the only street in "Downtown" Roby, TX I noticed a the remnants of an old theatre that was obviously a sign of the once proud and prosperous times in this small, small town. And curious as to what the ?12? people of Roby, might've called this theatre, I asked the old-timer standing outside in his Stetson, "Do you know what the name of the theatre was?"
And he looked at the skinny dork sitting in his rented Cavalier and said "Why I reckon it was the Roby Theatre."
As if the tiniest town on Earth was thinking in such grandiose terms as "The Paramount" or "Grand" or even the "Rialto." Stupid city slicker...

A month before Texas was Illinois. It was February. It was snowing. Now that summer has hit California's Central Valley, I got a kick out of this photo when I realized what the kid on the right was doing. I never even noticed him catching snowflakes when I took the photo.

What RU saying Bob? Don't beat around the bush and make grazing, cow-ardly statements. That's a bunch of bull. You seem to want to milk this thread until Adam would be mooved to close it down.
I don't toot anyone's horns , but you sure have a nack to bring the cream to the top no matter whether they have a beef or not about something.
