An example of the thing I find most...disconcerting...about British signs (and which I haven't seen anything like anywhere else) is that bit for the A12(W) sitting on top of the pull-through. All those parentheses the Brits insist on using are a bit much as well. I'm sure it's fine once you're used to it, though.

Hey Penn's, no more Carla Tortelli moments?

The Phils are still in last, so it may come to that. But I refuse to panic at the beginning of June.

(Extra points for any non-North American who knows what I'm talking about.)

I give up immediately. I suspect it's something about sports, but consider I'm probably the only Italian not following soccer

Baseball.

I posted that Carla Tortelli moment - "I, Carla Tortelli, am no longer a Red Sox fan....No, no; I mean it this time!....Stop that! [because everyone in the bar's reciting it along with her verbatim, obviously having heard the announcement before.]." - minutes after the Philadelphia Phillies were knocked out of the playoffs last year, after failing to score a single run in a game they had to win. This after eight months of confident local expectations they'd win the championship. The implication being, I'm mad at them but I'll get over it. Carla, being a [Boston] Red Sox fan, has suffered through a lifetime of such disappointments. Ask anyone from New England about The Curse.

Since the season runs from April into October, such pessimism, even disloyalty, would be completely inappropriate at the beginning of June, so I erased it.

This is the modern representation of such a moment:

No, that is due to my failing browser cache...

I've seen much more aggressive driving on the other side, München-Stuttgart.

It's pretty much the same anywhere in Germany. In the Ruhrgebiet there are notorious overtaking lane elephants...

The omnipresent city bike. I have one myself too. I only once used a bicycle to check out a road project though. I cycled a new expressway before it opened.
