So have I. 

Including ex-secondaries Va. 7100 (286) and 7900 (289) in Fairfax County and Va. 3000 (294) in Prince William County.

Putting those aside since they are now primaries, the longest one I have clinched might be Va. 659 in Prince William and Loudoun Counties at a little over 18 miles.

And Va. 609 in Dickenson and Buchanan Counties (thanks to you) between 9 and 10 miles.

That'll depend.  Some will say as long as they were in the airport they clinched it.  Others will say they had to get some sort of receipt to show they were in it.  And then others will claim they were there, and tell others how (great it was)(badly it sucked) based on the popular opinion of others.

Does Cutten need a freeway bypass (http://www.topix.com/member/profile/thealan360)

With possible OP:

Quote
Cutten is a small town next to Eureka (a medium sized city) and Cutten is home to many homes, businesses, and schools, Cutten is also next to Ridgewood Heights and Campton Heights, and maybe Cutten could have a freeway bypass, Hwy 101 will not bypass cutten, since it goes through Eureka, California State Route 30 will be the new number for the Cutten Freeway, the McKay Tract will either be torn down, or the bypass will be bulit in the middle of the forest, mean if a bypass is bulit, what will happen to the species, what will happen to all of the forest, all trees will have to be cut, or another way could be that the forest and the animals can survive, with the bypass going through the forest, the freeway will begin near the College of the Redwoods Interchange, and the freeway will end just east of Myrtletown, and Hwy 30 will continue as Myrtle Avenue to Eureka, Hwy 30 will begin as a freeway bypassing Cutten, and go east of Myrtletown, and the freeway wil end at Myrtle Avenue, and Hwy 30 will continue as Myrtle Avenue through Myrtletown and Eureka, well thats my plan, Cutten Residents what are your opinions.

I had a couple of teachers that required this. They maintained their own gradebook, but you were required to keep your own grade sheet as well, so you could know what your current grade for the class was. One teacher that required the grade sheet also required it to serve as a quasi-table of contents for a binder containing all of the graded homework and all of our notes from class, in the order assigned. She would occasionally collect the notebooks and verify that everything was present and organized, and we would receive a grade on that.

I don't remember any of the math she failed to teach us, but boy do I remember her bureaucratic notebook horseshit.

Could an airline route count as a "partial clinch" if the route is one where a single flight number is used but multiple stops are made en route? Say, for example, you had a US Air flight that went from, I don't know, Philadelphia to Charlotte to Cancun all with the same flight number. If you flew the PHL to CLT portion, is that a "partial clinch"?

I don't think so. A multi-stop flight is effectively multiple routes using the same plane.
Which is why I counted SFO - DTW, DTW - MEM, MEM - MCO as three separate routes.

Post by: formulanone on December 20, 2013, 02:44:09 PM
The Mob-Rule of flying, Flightmemory, basically considers a ticket with a departure and an arrival, with each stop-overs to count as individual segments. Basically, a take-off and landing is a segment, and even many airlines count those "segments" where you get on and off a plane as a trip.

I very nearly had a partial route clinch. Here's how: New York to Honolulu direct, but ran low on fuel and had to pit-stop in LAX. So... emergency landings could count, especially if you then abandon the remainder of the route.

145 would have been all in one day. It's only 7 miles!

Looking at a map, I definitely did not do the part of 107 between Lynn and Salem. South of Lynn I detoured to the I-95 grading (when it was still a big mound of dirt, 10+ years ago).

The Rhineland doesn't fit past tense as we still do use the definite article.

THE Alanland did and did not stand for 'The High Ethan's Alanland', so it wasn't really a definite article it lost, but Ethan's ownership. The goats who ousted him (and butted Eureka PD after they were called into something that wasn't their jurisdiction) feel that if you have to say you own a country, you don't actually own it, hence it's just 'Alanland' now.

Crap parts of my Troll posts are partially true. BBC News Said

www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-25863200

"In the latest incident, police said the singer had been racing a yellow Lamborghini against another sports car in the early hours of Thursday.
The Miami Herald reported that members of the musician's entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, effectively creating a drag strip.
Miami-Dade Police said the star didn't co-operate with officers at first, questioning why he had been stopped. He also had an invalid Georgia driver's license, they alleged."


Damn Bieber's crew planned a shut down on a Miami Street for a Drag Racing while drunk and stoned Study. I thought this was going to be fictional and random troll statements but now they turn out to be true.

IMHO, much of the animosity towards the Clearview font is more directed towards how many transportation agencies misinterpreted its intended implementation.  Beyond just overimplementation, many states either made the letter heights unnecessarily larger (Clearview's original intended purpose was to avoid such upsizing) or featured letter spacing that was either too far or too close together; resulting in many signs looking completely disproportionate or like an after-thought.

How many toddlers' foreskins have you pulled back? (Yeah, a bit over the top but guaranteed not to surface)

That's an understatement. I'm surprised that Scott didn't purple-line this out.

If you were serious, you would likely be banned and reported to local law enforcement.

Actually, there's a whole profession -- or at least a subset of a profession -- that does just that activity on a regular basis.  The profession is "mohel"; a rabbi trained in the art of the "brit milah", more commonly known as "bris" --  the ritual circumcision of Jewish males when they're 8 days old (and sometimes later, depending upon the parents' choice).  Of course, they need to pull back the foreskin before cutting it off, so that activity is part of the process.  Nothing particularly predatory to be found here (although some organized opposition to the act of circumcision in general has been seen at times).  I'm just surprised that other posters didn't cite mohels before now.  My 1st wife was Jewish, so I was privy to witness the bris of her nephew (I gritted my teeth during the whole event -- and was somewhat relieved that we had a daughter!).

Approximately 100 miles in eastern Colorado, when I succumbed to highway hypnosis.  I came out of it in Denver, drifting towards a truck in city traffic.

Nice point. In my country circumcision is only done due to medical reasons, and as such I despise it if it's done for other reasons. Don't fix what is not wrong. Besides, my (controversial) proposal asked for toddlers, not babies (who usually don't have a retractable foreskin, while most of 3 year old boys have).

Anyway, more proposals:

Channel bridge-tunnel opened (linking France and the UK)

I was under the impression that they still kind of talked about that stuff in school around 5th grade?  Definitely was an awkward comment when I saw it.  Hopefully he just asks and doesn't look, the internet is a BAD place to type anything questionable into a search engine.

It is a near certainty that some shorter 3dis have been walked by litter pickup patrols, highway construction crews, facility maintenance folks, etc.

Also I-180 in Wyoming is probably walked every day by somebody as it has sidewalks on nearly all of it and a well worn foot path where it doesn't...

I didn't look on the back for a sticker but I assume they're DOT-issued (or at least DOT-sanctioned) as they're posted in the right-of-way.  As the road also is designated as Historic US-66, I assume the signs are part of promoting the road as a tourist destination.

Million Dollar Outhouses.

I nominate the one at Panorama Point, about 3 miles and 1500 ft of elevation gain by trail from the trailhead at Paradise, Mt. Rainier National Park.  It's a thing of beauty, a natural hollow in the rock face enclosed by fine stonework, now a solar powered device dries the waste so only a small amount has to be airlifted out.  All construction materials, except the local stone, had to be helicoptered in.  Lovely handmade hinges and latch.  The inside is about 8 x 10 feet, except irregularly shaped.

Dingleberry removal techniques

Post by: J N Winkler on November 30, 2016, 08:49:53 PM
Dingleberry removal techniques

Removal

Wet a washcloth with warm tap water and use it to wipe the anus and surrounding areas.  Rinse the resulting brown streaks off the washcloth.  Repeat until streaks are no longer visible on the washcloth before it is rinsed.  Do not use soap, since it will irritate the skin around the anus.  For best results, do this during a shower, with a washcloth separate from the one used for soap application.

Prevention

Stools showing the greatest propensity to leave bits of fecal matter clinging to hair around the anus have a sticky, clayey texture that is comparable to Play-Doh or used chewing gum.  This typically results from stool overconsolidation as a result of too little water, too little dietary fiber, or both, and can be effectively prevented by maintaining fiber intake at 100% of the RDA (minimum) on an ongoing basis, and drinking at least eight glasses of water daily (each glass containing about two cups).

One I'd like to see but I don't think we'll get; Historic National Park Road Maps.

Extracts are available here:

http://npshistory.com/brochures/index.htm

The NPS term of art for these brochures is apparently "site folder."

My own brochure collection (less than a shelf foot for over 20 years' worth of park visits) is all post-Unigrid.  These days it seems to be more common to fade the 100-point black strip at the top into the cover photo, and there also seems to have been a change in house typeface (formerly Helvetica, now something that looks very like Roissy; I have two different editions of the Yellowstone brochure, one before the change and one following it).

I'm pretty sure we'll never see multiple threads about gum.

Oh, wait.....



Anyone remember when they used to make over-the-counter or prescription drugs in chewing gum form? I think it was inspired by the chewing gum craze of the '70s and '80s.

I was in a motel room munching on an Arby's sandwich, when I realized it was so chewy I could probably blow a bubble with it. I don't think it was the meat that was so chewy. It was the bun. Just like it was gum or something.

Has anyone here ever bubbled (blown bubbles with bubble gum) while Roads Scholaring?

A friend was chewing bubble gum a couple weeks ago, and somehow she got hair stuck in her gum.

Have any of you ever gotten your wallet ruined by a chewed wad of bubble gum?

Arguably, that lands in #3, after the NY Giants' move to San Francisco (because of West Coast expansion) and Irsay using moving vans to move the Colts (because...moving vans). But I feel the Cleveland-Baltimore move of 1995 was one of the saddest ones; due to the immediate mid-season announcement, followed by the decay of player (not personal) morale, sponsors pulling out, and once-rabid fans not willing to show up.

I wonder if something crazier or stranger to a moving sports team has happened outside America. One or two racing teams have done some bizarre things, but that's for another forum*...besides, moving around is naturally part of the sport.

I'd say the Colts leaving Baltimore was much more impacting than the Browns.  The Colts basically just shipped up and left in the middle of the night.  My grand father was a huge Baltimore Colts fan and was absolutely crushed when that happened, he wouldn't even root for the Ravens because in his eyes it just wasn't the same.  Cleveland got their team back eventually which really mitigates what happened when the original Browns became the Ravens.

Oh they showed up -- with toolboxes and hacksaw at the final home game...They were taking out rows of bleacher and wooden seats, pieces of the turf and anything else.  I will say that announcing a move while still in-season is a little more of a slap in the face than doing an overnight secret move in the off-season.  Seeing a stadium full of blank advertising and no commercial breaks on the Browns radio broadcasts.  That was very surreal.

That might also explain the end-of-season win! I remember ESPN showing the fans hauling away anything and everything.

I have to hand it to their fans; it takes a certain amount of solidarity to intentionally not show up to most of the games...I think even the last home game wasn't a sell-out (could be wrong about this).

Clinching parking garages

Does anyone else here "collect" clinched parking garages?  To count as clinched, I need to have driven on every ramp/lane and parked in every space (handicap and motorcycle spaces don't count, though).  I've been mapping my clinches for the last two years or so, and I was just curious to see if anyone else does this too.  I'm considering starting a website for fellow members to map their parking garage clinches, similar to the clinched highway mapping websites that have popped up from time to time.

A T-intersection where the terminating road is flared out to allow for higher-speed exiting and entering.

My first RIRO post was not referring to entrance/exit configurations that were essentially half a folded diamond, but rather streets that intersect a freeway/expressway without curved or banked ramps that allow exits and entrances greater than about 10-15mph -- like the old frontage road "interchanges" on CA 99 betgween Manteca and Stockton, now removed with the revamping of that highway.  IIRC, there's one remaining between Delano and Tulare as well NB.  Attempting high speed on any of those would put the driver into either the chain-link fence between the main lanes and the frontage road or spinning out into one of the adjoining fields!  The now-defunct ones north of Manteca also included stop signs (and very short merging lanes) at the freeway entrance.

Yes, like a wye junction.  A RIRO differs from a typical wye junction in that access is only to/form side of the through road.

This is a RIRO, for everyone's benefit:

Boring state route endings

You sure?....seems like we do a lot of complaining on the Pacific Southwest board when there isn't an "end" placard at the end of a route.  Wouldn't seem so far fetched to me given the Interstate and US Route terminus threads we have out there if someone eventually did post that one.

Or..."State routes that end at seemingly random places". Because, good grief, Louisiana is filled with such state highways.

Nope. Tom is a misc.transport.road and Facebook personality whose catchphrase is "do us all a favor and..." directed at some unpleasant person or entity. He always punctuated his diatribes with some random route in a state that could be upgraded to an Interstate.

To fix an ALCO (which had GE electrical gear at the time) required a piano tuner.  To fix an EMD only required a parts changer.

85 brings you to Alanland, 88 brings you back in time, and both at the same time gives you real-life admin powers (e.g. teleportation to wherever you want, ability to kick/mute/ban people, unlimited creation of any object, etc.).

Here's a first paragraph, instead of just a thread title:

Quote from: Your local newspaper
A new bipartisan bill has been passed into law to try to reduce the number of "unfair" tickets. If a policeman writes you a ticket for speeding, and you are found not guilty, both the department the policeman is working for and the policeman himself must pay $200 each to the person found not guilty. If a red light camera or speed camera catches someone, and that person is not guilty, the department the red light camera is generating revenue for and the red light camera company must each pay $500 to the person found not guilty. This should significantly reduce tickets given by policemen and cameras, as they fear being wrong.

Well basically the deal with that place is that it was used as a natural horse corral above the Colorado River.  Basically at some point the corral became defunct and the fences were opened so the horses could, but they never did.  Essentially the horses on Dead Horse Point stayed in their corral until they died of starvation, so really more "Moron Horses."  Really UT 313 is a really cool place though, it edges the boundary of Canyonlands National Park in the Island of the Sky District along the way to Dead Horse.

The forum software polls support first past the post and approval, but no others. (I saw a poll on this forum once that included 50 options, one for each state plus DC. Imagine if you had to scroll past 720 listings just for each ordering of six options.)

As my first language is not English I may mix several varieties, even to the point of using two variations of the same word equally. I'm sometimes not sure about what words use, which recently led to a funny situation in the Craft Beer thread. As for the typos another vote for "Pencilvania", but I remember a "Person" for "Pearson", the latter having a slight negative connotation for me.

Any post or thread along the lines of "a statement I made earlier was incorrect."

We have actually had a number of posts containing apologies.  Forum search returns 26 pages' worth of results containing the string {apolog} (no braces), which should match apologies, apologize, apology, etc.  I certainly agree there are instances where regulars fail to acknowledge errors that they have made, but this is not the same as saying such acknowledgments never happen.

About IATA codes, I like the initials of the Chinese Proficiency Test, as they match the code of the closest airport to me: HSK (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huesca%E2%80%93Pirineos_Airport)

Expanding to ICAO codes, too bad Ivory Coast doesn't have an airport with ICAO code DIPG (see above). I think we had a thread about airport codes before.

Depends on what side of the time zone you are.  Chances are the further east you are, the more favorable you find DST.  Except Alaska where everyone likely doesn't - since they're 2 timezones west of their natural time.

I suppose those qualify as “public”, but what I was envisioning was something truly out in the open—like on a street corner or in a public park.

Airports you've clinched?

How do you clinch an airport? Visit every gate? Take off or land on every runway?  Using every taxiway would be quite unlikely unless you're the pilot and the ground controller cooperative.

Been on every direct scheduled flight from that airport to some other airport at least once?


I know this is over 5 years old, but for a few years, I could say I clinched every commercial airline route out of HSV in 2014, with 9 routes on 4 airlines. That changed as two new airlines appeared, vying for Orlando; I may have to work on that one day. I can also count Albany, Georgia (ABY) and Columbus, Georgia (CSG), since they each have one airline and a single destination. This was back when I lived in Florida.

The last two feel like clinching I-175 and I-375 in St. Petersburg.

Not as far-fetched as it may sound. Kiribati moved to the other side of the Date Line a while back. Their time zones include UTC+13 and UTC+14.

Regarding DST, I was playing with the time entry software at the office and I found that I were to work from 1:00 to 3:00 this Sunday morning, it would credit me with two hours’ work (and pay) even though only one hour would elapse. I have no interest in being at work at that time even if I could (can’t—the secure server we use will be down for maintenance all weekend), and taking advantage of that strikes me as a good way to get fired.

Hopefully this won't antagonize the moderators, but if it does, I'll PM this message and delete the post. The term "standard time" simply refers to what international agreements define as the time, relative to UTC, for the meridian at the center of that time zone.

Of course all time is arbitrary. (The squirrels outside right now have no idea we set the clocks ahead last night.) There don't need to be 24 hours in a day, for example. The French Republican Calendar defined a day as being ten hours, each divided into 100 minutes, each of those then divided into 100 seconds. (So when people joke about "metric time," they often don't know there really was an attempt at that sort of thing.) I have an app on my phone that I downloaded just for fun that would tell me the current time using that calendar, but my phone is in the other room and I don't feel like going to get it.

Dick York or Dick Sargent
Only because no one prefers Dick Sargent.

And yet Sargent was reportedly the producers’ first choice to play Darren (!), but because he was unavailable due to a contractual issue (other sources state that Sargent turned the offer down), they had to “settle” for Dick York instead.

York, as I have read, was too ill to continue which is why he was replaced. Sargent lasted 3 years.

Yes, according to a documentary I saw many years ago, Dick York had suffered a serious back injury during the filming of a Western film in the late ’50s, and it left him with chronic pain for the rest of his life. He began taking painkillers to cope and soon became addicted. On the documentary, some costars and crew members recalled that he’d shoot a scene then return to his dressing room where he’d put himself in a whole-body sling in an attempt to get relief. In addition to heavy drinking and smoking, his condition eventually deteriorated to the point that he couldn’t continue in the role.

By then, Dick Sargent was out of his commitment (or was in need of employment and willing to reconsider), and the producers simply went back to their first choice.

For what it's worth, everybody eats their own snot, all day long, every day.  The cilia inside your nose are constantly transporting snot to the back of your throat, whereupon it drains down into your stomach.  Picking your nose and eating the snot is just a shortcut, and you may as well be efficient.

On a related but unrelated topic, I kinda want to start a thread for "Daylight wasting time" and see if it gets locked.  I think that would be a good subject line for another Alanland-like discussion.

Over-moderation and anal-retentive moderation happened to them.

In all honesty, I started the DST 2019 thread just to see what would happen to it. I think the fascination with the subject, at least on my end, is because DST is such a good thing and the people who don't like it are wrong.  :-D

Tim has called it that for years. He's not a fan. Me, however; I'm loving the fact that there's plenty of daylight left when I get home in the evenings. I had to work late yesterday and it wasn't dark when I got home at 7:30, which is a good thing.

I had the A344—better known as the road past Stonehenge—clinched (and I still have it my Travel Mapping log because I view it as a valid clinch), but the road no longer exists. There’s now just a service road for shuttle buses taking people from the new visitors’ centre to the rocks.

I guess rather than “roads you’ve unclinched,” this would go in “roads you clinched that no longer exist.”

Believe it or not, it can happen!  I took a vacation to Iceland in 2017 and made an effort to drive and clinch the entire "Ring Road" (Route 1).  A scant two months after my trip, a section was re-routed in the eastern part of the state (near Egilsstaðir), killing my clinch.  And more recently, another stretch in the northern part (near Akureyri) was also re-routed, due to a tunnel completion.  Sigh.

And I don't foresee another visit in the near future to fix that.

Personally, I don't count realignments as needing to re-clinch a road. As long as I've clinched the section of road between two given points, that section remains clinched no matter if it gets realigned, rebuilt, etc. If it is renumbered, the clinched section counts toward the new designation. The only way I would consider a highway to get "unclinched" is a fully 100%ed route is extended.

Believe it or not, it can happen!  I took a vacation to Iceland in 2017 and made an effort to drive and clinch the entire "Ring Road" (Route 1).  A scant two months after my trip, a section was re-routed in the eastern part of the state (near Egilsstaðir), killing my clinch.  And more recently, another stretch in the northern part (near Akureyri) was also re-routed, due to a tunnel completion.  Sigh.

And I don't foresee another visit in the near future to fix that.

Personally, I don't count realignments as needing to re-clinch a road. As long as I've clinched the section of road between two given points, that section remains clinched no matter if it gets realigned, rebuilt, etc. If it is renumbered, the clinched section counts toward the new designation. The only way I would consider a highway to get "unclinched" is a fully 100%ed route is extended.
This is the case for me and VA 164, which was extended since the last time I drove it. Last time I was down that way I had planned to re-clinch it, but a crash in the I-264 tunnel caused me to hear another way. (Interestingly, I ended up clinching another route because of that.)

Heck, how about the Lions even win a Division Title?

The Buccaneers have won the NFC Central (old)/NFC North crown more recently than the Lions, and the Bucs were sent out of the Central/North to the then-newly formed NFC South back in 2002

The only way I would consider a highway to get "unclinched" is a fully 100%ed route is extended.

I do allow for some leeway with re-alignments - usually approximately "within eyesight".  A realignment say 300 yards from the old road would be fine, or a new bridge built next to the old one.  If it's down a whole new corridor, maybe 10-20 miles apart, that might be different.  Or if it would look "wrong" when plotted on the "travelmapping.net" web site.  Kind of a "common sense" clause.

Also a related issue about driving roads before getting a certain designation.  I've driven some asphalt that is now I-11, I-42, I-87(NC) etc but before they received those numbers.  That's OK for me.

All of the examples listed never really got any big changes yet. I don't believe I-42 is designated anywhere yet, though I-11 and I-87 are.

Either way, the same principal applies really for me. If it's an existing freeway upgraded w/ shoulders or something or already interstate standards and has received a designation, it still counts even if I drove it before.

Now the real question is what if a non-limited-access highway is upgraded to interstate standards with new frontage roads, interchanges, etc? Would driving it before the limited-access upgrade count, or would the upgrade change it?

New alignments are separate too for me. If I've driven an arterial highway, but a freeway was built parallel to it as a "bypass" or simply a 4-lane realignment, I don't consider have driven that "freeway" yet if I've not physically driven on it.

I don't know how common this is elsewhere, but for a while I-295 in NJ near the lakes around Exits 14 - 16 were beginning to get a fair amount of RIRO traffic between interchanges, where people could drive off of I-295, take their cars down to the lake to drop off their small rowboats or kayaks, and then just park on the grass off of I-295.  Eventually the State Police must've informed the vehicle owners that this was a no-no so it eventually stopped.
