The US 62 end. This route is basically just a bridge, and the other end is a gravel county road.

Kind of partial toward the part that ends at a locked gate, myself.

Which end of HU-301 looks better? (A Spanish provincial road consisting of a railway crossing and nothing else)
Various polls:

Favo(u)rite variety of English?
Least favorite politician?
First past the post, approval, instant runoff, or other?
Which forum member is most deserving of a ban?
Favorite typo?

"Pencilvaynia" has to be up there for favorite typos  :-D

With the exception of "least favorite politician", those actually all seem like fairly likely threads.
Care to clarify the third one?

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.
Logged
"Football", a quite ambiguous word for me. I assume "association" football instead of "American" football.

All times Eastern unless DST is in force only in the USA (Central in that case to preserve "6 hours behind my actual time") or otherwise noted

If we're going to do threads about which end of an inconsequential route looks better, then I nominate MN-330.

Those voting systems wouldn't be regarding forum polls, but presidential (and other) elections.
