As soon as their power comes back on the south will get a kick out of this.

lindalouwho: Adolf Oliver Nipples: Nobody can drive in the Philadelphia area. You'd know this if you ever had the misfortune to wait for hours at a time on the Surekill Expressway, which is only an expressway for a child on a bicycle. The rest of the time it's a crawl at best for hours because some Philly jerkoff wiped out and farked everything up, backing traffic all the way up to the Turnpike. It's no wonder King of Prussia's mall is so successful, nobody has ever made it any further than there.

Pittsburgh, however, is a different story. If you can drive in Pittsburgh, especially in winter, you can drive anywhere.

Philadelphia is Pennsylvania in name only. It's a different world, full of assholes and people who aren't yet old enough to be assholes. Don't lump the rest of us in with them.

I'm here for back-up on that, brother.

I take umbrage - our kids become assholes at birth. Philadelphia-New Joisey-New York. The Axis of Evil. The Klingon Empire of America. Hellmouth of the United States (Japan being the only other). None can resist us You should be scared silly.

For we are the the apex of your country's culture. What have you to compare with it? Branson? Dollywood? Disney World? Pathetic sandboxes made of cardboard. The assholes hold your highest culture in the palm of your hand like testicles, ripe for crushing. We control your country's economy. Well, us, and Delaware, our cringing lapdog that cowers at our feet... Our heroes are the mightiest - Rocky, John McClain, Louie DePalma, all dem guys from the Marvel Universe...

Your country was born here, and here were the first seeds of all that is unholy were planted. High Finance, Philadelphia Lawyers, "City Fellers," "Goodellas," mob justice, vox populi, economic stratification and classism started here. While the South was busy fighting for their "rats" to own people of another color, we didn't bother. Hick thinking. The only color that mattered - then and now - was green. And now, green owns you all. Mu hah ha.

Ferengi honor us as Gods among worms. Philadelphia has the oldest Mint, running since 1792. Why? Because the people who make it are the only people who actually get to count how much they make before it hits the streets. Why is Fort Knox in Kentucky? Because, after some thought, some smart guy wanted to put all that gold someplace trustworthy. So we missed out on that.

You say yesterday was all about ice. But, if you said a group of guys got together and wanted to create the biggest insurance scam perpetrated on the auto industry, I can't say I'd be surprised. Lots of lawyers employed, lots of new cars acquired, a bunch of "Whiplash" cases that will fund several hundred extended vacations... If the news helicopters would've just stood still long enough, you may have seen people wander out of the woods from neighboring housing just to lay down in the middle of the road and cradle their necks.

That's my kinda town.

So never denigrate our children. We still spank 'em at birth around here - just to put the mean in 'em early.

MrHappyRotter: More eye rolling.

It doesn't matter what ridiculous and unfounded stereotypes are associated with you in regards to your race, creed, gender, age, sexual orientation, nationality, regionality, socioeconomic status etc, etc, etc ... when it comes to driving in the kinds of conditions that these severe winter storms present, you're going to have a bad time.

I don't care what part of the country you're from or what kind of vehicle you're driving.  If road conditions change from perfect to 1/2 inch or more of ice and slush within minutes, there's going to be a percentage of  people who get stuck or run into problems.  As the sheer number of those people add up, the roads get gridlocked and cut off.  Once that happens, you can have 999,400,340,potato wheel drive with chains and baby Jesus in the passenger seat, and you're still going to get into trouble.

PSA: Please have baby Jesus IN THE BACK SEAT and SECURED IN A CARSEAT.

But but but the South! They are the only one who can't drive in a little snow remember? There were 20 headlines about it this week, we all laughed and pointed at them. Because we all drag race on 2 inches of ice for fun. That's just how badass we are in the North.

optikeye: None of which explains Ohio drivers..who have the ability to ignore 'fast' and 'passing' lanes and drive as if they're 96 years old driving 10mph under the limit in the left lane of a interstate.

Honestly, if I had to re-write American law I would make a proviso whereby cars plated in Ohio were not road legal in the other 49.
