    The FIRST person what says ANYTHING about him being upside down can go to the back of the class.
    Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.
    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.

      Since I have No Class, I'll say it:

      HE'S UPSIDE DOWN.

          I see. And just what direction do these circles go in?

            That depends. If you are on the south side of the city they go clockwise. Conversely if you are on the noth side, they go counter clockwise. But it really sucks if you are in the NE, SE, NW, or SW quardrants. Depending on how close to the edge of the next sector you are, you may find yourself going clockwise at one circle and counter in the next, while still in the same quadrant. Oh.. and there are no warning signs, you are "expected to know" which is which. Personally, I try to stay out of circles. They make me dizzy.

                Nozz.. you don't have to go to England to experience driving on a "roundabout".. we have them right here in Massachusetts.. we call them "rotaries"...

                On the smaller ones, the vehicle already in the rotary has the right of way...
                If it is on Cape Cod in the summer time... it's every man for himself!

                    Right...you who drives in a perpetual power-slide slow down for anything. Sure.
                    Seriously, if we had something like that with the way people drive here, someone would be upside-down on fire every day!

                        I wish I could answer all these questions, but my edumacation is not all that good!!!
                        You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

                          And why do the airlines insist on putting passengers ON planes and not IN them?I don't fly for that reason:something clocking 650 MPH at 30,000 feet,I'd rather be IN the thing and not ON it.

                              You guys should try the "ultimate in stupidity rotary" Park Square in Pittsfield,MA (the other end of the state from the "real" rotaries). Talk about every man/woman/child for themselves. Some incomming traffic has yeild signs, some do not (not like they abide by them anyway...even with an emergency vehicle with L&S on)

                              I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine
