No...there are a few famous examples of roads converging onto a cricular "roundabout", to use a British term. Piccadilly Circus in London is one of them.  The other is the Place de l'Étoile (Place Charles de Gaulle) in Paris.  In NYC we have Columbus Circle which has a strange assortment of streets that do not so much radiate out from it, but just seem to coalesce there in no particularly orderly way (a perennial source of indignation for all New York drivers).

I'm still waiting for berto to take this test.  Even if letters of the alphabet are not part of the questionnaire.

Good call, Fer...


*sigh*

Now if only I really did know as much as I appear to at times. ;)

Hells, I'd settle for half as much.

This hasn't stopped folks from plotting it's eventual debut on the silver screen. Some books just scream "film me" ...even before many people have had the opportunity to read it yet.


Good call, Fer...


Interview with ďHeroĒ author Perry Moore

Quote
AE: Have you gotten any response from the comic book community?

PM: I think probably the biggest one has been Stan Lee, who wants to turn it into a movie. Thatís pretty affirming for a legend like Stan who happens to be an older, straight white male to think that. Itís just a wonderful shot in the arm for the genre. Thatís just such a validation.

and on the topic of Van Sant's movie about Milk...

Sean Penn to star as Harvey Milk

Quote
...and Matt Damon his assassin

[...]

...Van Sant hopes to begin production on the as-yet-untitled feature in San Francisco as early as December. The uncertain start date may affect Damon's participation as Milk's killer, Dan White.


Not my first choice, but possibly an inspired one. Penn *IS* phenominal, at times. cf: Dead Man Walking; Carlito's Way

Your Linguistic Profile:



50% General American English

20% Upper Midwestern

15% Yankee

10% Midwestern

0% Dixie



Well, duh. Though don't tell too many people that my incomprehensible accent is "Midwestern." Midwesterners especially have difficulty understanding it. (That would be, I very strongly suspect, because I'm prone to using words like 'incomprehensible.')

I loved this bit:

What do you call a traffic situation in which several roads meet in a circle and you have to get off at a certain point?


That would be.... a figment of your imagination. Roads do not do this. They meet at tidy right angles, just the two of them at a time. Of course, from time to time there are insane roads that really ought to be ripped out that meet an otherwise tidy intersection at a forty-five degree angle (usually without crossing it). That would be called "that stupid intersection that ought to be ripped out."

Cruising

It caused a huge controversy when it opened here.  I wondered what all the fuss was about as a kid.  A few years later, I was wandering around looking for my own kinda gayness on those same streets.
