1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    The toughest thing to adjust to in Houston vs NYC is the driving. In NYC, taxi drivers set the tone, and everyone has to match it. Ridiculous rushing to the red light ahead, squeezing around and in front of people, etc.

    Part 1: In Houston, people drive as if they have no interest in getting where they're going. If you like to go fast and get to your destination asap, it is fucking unbearable. Going above the speed limit is inconceivable to these people.

    Part 2: In downtown Houston the left lane may be a dedicated left turn lane, and the 2nd from left lane is a turn or straight lane. Motherfuckers will stay in the 2nd from left lane, WITH NO ONE IN THE FAR LEFT LANE, and take the left turn. Forcing everyone behind them in the 2nd from left lane to a slower speed. It's completely intolerable.

    Part 3: When taking a right onto a 3 lane road, they will wait until all 3 lanes are clear, rather than just the nearest one. This is 90%+ of people on the road here. I want to off these people.

    I think that is the case for anyone west of the Mississippi. It drives me crazy too. You also forgot to mention treating a "Yield" sign like a stop sign on all occasions.

    I love everything about cars (minus the obvious like repairs, insurance, etc.), and religiously read the car thread .... and yet I'm glad I don't own a car because it means I don't have to deal with people who drive.

    If I was wealthy or powerful I would have public announcement ads aired and billboards made about traffic ettiquette, and it would be the most productive thing ever done for the USA in the history of the USA.

    DRIVE IN THE RIGHT LANE UNLESS YOU ARE PASSING YOU FUCKS!!!

    I just do not understand how every person on the road does not understand this or have it drilled into them. Clearly the barriers to getting a driver's license are way too low.

    Jesus christ! Can you use proper grammar in your posts? Your writing makes you sound like a grade-b ape. Clearly the threshold for new member registration is too low. (Cf: edina)

    I want to buy something on craigslist, but the seller fucked up their own email address (gmail returns it as undeliverable).

    On one hand, this means that if I can track them down, there won't be any other buyers showing interest. On the other hand, :fu:

    I think I found their facebook profile, but facebook hides messages from people you don't know in your "Other" folder which most people don't know exists and thus never check. You can pay a dollar to send it directly to them...but I am not quite willing to do that.

    I may have found their twitter, but they haven't used it since 2013 and only sent 3 tweets, so I don't know that tweeting at them will work. I found a google plus profile that could be them...but...google plus?

    I sing "flat skillet" where "griddle" is supposed to go. I lose the rhyme and the correct syllabification, and also the sense isn't exactly right, although it's close enough. But it's still better than singing "griddle."

    The most annoying American drivers I have encountered are on Cape Cod. They drive slow as shit and always stop in the middle of streets to let people make lefts in front of them. Learn how to drive you stupid old white people!

    I don't know if used humblers are worth that much effort.

    I know some of you will "tear me a new one" of criticism for this but I'm going to say it irregardless because it is true I often become grumpy at lunch time because I am in the middle of getting valuable work done and I resent the opportunity costs of eating.
