Do you prefer GE or EMD?
Reminds me of a quote from a former motive power official of the New Haven railroad (which was a mostly ALCO road until the mid-1950s).

Quote
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.

It's not a portal. It's a causeway that disappears if you go above or below 85 MPH.

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.
