How many characters are on your state/territory/province/country license plates? In Missouri there are 6.

In Virginia, non-personalized standard plates now have seven characters, not counting the state name and the insipid "Virginia is for Lovers" slogan. Some non-personalized specialty plates, like the "Great Seal" plates on both of my cars, have only six.
This question just applies for the base, non-personalized non-specialty plate.

In Bills news:

My goodness. My blood pressure is never going to be the same after that Bills-Rams game. The Bills blew a 28-3 lead - yes, exactly like the Falcons did in the infamous Super Bowl - went down 32-28 after giving up four straight TD's, marched down the field and squeaked in a touchdown on 4th down - after a controversial PI call - to finish 35-32 with 15 seconds remaining.

Happy to be 3-0, but I have serious, serious questions about this defense. The Bills went the entire 2019 season without allowing 32 points, and now they allow 28 to the Dolphins and 32 to the Rams in back-to-back weeks.

Low 90s today with AQI in the 80s.  Seems the worst of Fire season is over, I went into more detail in the applicable thread.

Is this just a generic "termini oddities" page? If so, I should bring up the Y-shaped OK 63A and OK-77S, which has no less than four termini (two on the "main loop", then two spurs connecting with other highways).

Don't forget the suffixed OK 251 series of access roads at Fort Gibson Lake. OK 251D had 4 termini, while OK 251E had 3 ends. OK 251A is the only remaining member of the 251 series, and it only has two ends. OK 251B and 251C had two termini as well. There has never been an OK 251 that I am aware of.

This season I'm following "the" Football Team just because :sombrero:.

....

Iíve decided I think Iíll call every team by "[City Name] Football Team" (or, for New York and LA, "[City Name] [NFC or AFC] Football Team" except for continuing to call the local team the Washington Redskins.

Let's spice things up a bit. "Football Team" gets to take an opponent's nickname when they win.

Washington beat Philadelphia in Week 1, so Washington is now the Eagles and Philadelphia is "Football Team." When Philadelphia wins their next game, they get to take the opponent's nickname and "Football Team" passes to them. See who gets stuck as "Football Team" at the end of the season.

Philadelphia lost again, so they reamain "Football Team" for another week.

Philadelphia didnít lose today, but they didnít win eitheróthey tied Cincinnati 23Ė23 and thus continue to be "Football Team."

I don't know how unique this is, but this sign in San Diego directs bicycles to use a pedestrian button to request a left turn.

I was there yesterday and it seems that since the street view was taken, a second push button was added to the outside of the pole so that cyclists wouldn't have to dismount.

From what I found out a couple, or so, years ago, Carrollton, MO used to have a covered bridge on S. Main St, where it crosses the Wakenda creek, up until about 1919.

I think all of the above goes back to the point of whether or not it was a good idea to route 95 through Wilmington.  The long distance traffic mixes with the local traffic.  A lot more bypass traffic would probably take 495 if it were numbered 95.

I-495 in Delaware is signed (in terms of control cities) to encourage "thru" trips to use it as a bypass of I-95. 

That, combined with drivers that know that I-495 is a better (as in faster with less interchanges) road than I-95 are probably taking it now.  I have never had issues taking either one, except during the problem in 2014 with the I-495 bridge over the Christiana River that forced a hard closure of I-495 that lasted several weeks.
