This thread will feature videos of scenic drives that I've taken across Illinois as I make them. Here's the latest one.

I personally have no problem with you posting the videos you make on here, but it becomes annoying when your titles are completely false and misleading. Just title the thread "Interstate 70 in Illinois".

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

Fundamental Theorem of AARoads - Let "y" represent the elevation above sea level in a certain area. If "Δy" between the highest and lowest values of y equals to 0, it's Illinois.

Don't worry, the Flat Illinois series has been trolled plenty on Facebook also. 

As an aside, I'll go as far to say that none of Interstate 70 between West Virginia and Denver is scenic.  Then the opposite notion is what a Flat Illinois home boy would think, so I guess it fits the brand.  I donít know about you guys but I canít wait until the next video premier which features comments turned off drops.

Comments aren't turned off. I just made it subscribers only in the chat. I70 does lose some scenery east of Indianapolis until after Columbus.

Nah, you just wussed out because you knew you were going to get destroyed.  Thatís what happens when you do nothing but create a bunch of ill will in the community you so desperately want to be part of.

I-70 in IL isn't scenic. None of Illinois is scenic. Illinois sucks. There are 49 more scenic states to drive in than that dull, useless place.

Well I most certainly didn't mean to. That's why I don't post the regular dashcamming videos in here anymore.

Very strongly disagree about Illinois not having any scenic areas:

I-72 just west of the Illinois River

Parts of US 20 west of Galena

Parts of I-24

Parts of IL 100

Parts of IL 2
