    I drove through CT today on my way to NJ for a family party, and apparently anyone can get a drivers license in CT. I almost got in at least 8-10 accidents, saw countless people almost get into accidents, and saw 2 SEVERE accidents on the side of the road. And I'm not over exaggerating, I'm being perfectly sensible as any reasonable driver would.

    PEOPLE IN CT CAN NOT DRIVE!!!

    no offense markerdown :rolleyes: you don't drive a black BMW do you??

    Ha ha, yeah it was nuts driving back there last summer when I road tripped from Hartford to Oxford MA to visit an AF buddy.

    I'm still out in the desert southwest and haven't moved back home yet. Why is it so crazy you ask? Because most of the morons are driving and yakkin or texting on their cell phones and not paying attention!! Why else does a state 200 mi x 80 mi need two area codes?

    I got stopped and ticketed by a Conn. state cop for not stopping at a yield sign at a rotary, at five am, with no other cars on the road but mine and the cops.
    I asked the cop as he was writting me up "what does yield mean to you sir", he said, "It means yhat you'd better friggin' stop".
    When I went to court to answer the complaint, I tried to explain to the judge that in MA, yield means to give on coming traffic the right of way, it didn't mean stop when there's no oncoming traffic, the judge looked at me and said, "well sir, this isn't MA., and when you're in this state, you'll drive according to our laws, $80.00 plus court costs."

    If you are from Virginia, you are concerned about the failure to secure the borders. NC and DC.

    "Ham" means Smithfield.

    "Rush Hour" is about 20 minutes (Northern VA excepted)

    "Waiting period" for a gun is how log it takes the credit card to be approved.

    Deer hunting is considered self defense. (We are overrun with them)

    You own a REAL Confederate $50 bill, and note that it is now worth more than a US $50 bill.

    You know who Marse Robert was, and consider him to be overdue for sainthood.

    You know that the Pilgrims got lost on their way to Virginia, and that Thanksgiving started HERE.
