Why does President Obama, come to the City of Phildelphia...at 4:00 in the afternoon; when the Phillies have an afternoon game...and it's over at 4:00....so ALL of the major roadways, are closed due to his motorcade...not to mention, it's rush hour...so all of the people, who are trying, just to get home...have to wait in "Jammos"...because of him...and waste gas that costs over $3.00 a gallon...could someone PLEASE answer this for me??? btw, at this point, he couldn't buy a vote in Philly...no lol
I think there's some top secret law somewhere that the President may only visit Philly only if they time it to really screw up rush hour. Bush did this a few times too.

If we ever get the flying cars the 50's promised us would this still be a problem? I'd even settle for the Inspector Gadget helicopter hat - commutes would be faster and you get a stylish hat.

Hmmm, these ideas sound GREAT...btw, I do remember Bush, coming to Philly...right across the street, from where they were having the International Car Show...our local traffic guy, asked the question, if it was fair for Obama, to do this...one mother wrote...she had to take her child down to Childrens Hospital...I know from experience, those appointments are hard to get...you usually wait about 6 months to get one...only to have Obama, interfere with something that important...I could really feel for this mother...I think they should have to take Mass Transit...and find out what it's like to be an "average" person...lol

I recall one time when Bush was in town, they shut down an Interstate highway so he'd have a clear road. I pondered... "Ya know, if the President got stuck in traffic like everyone else, I bet something would be done with alternative forms of transportation."

I didn't ponder that question too long because I was hungry and went out for a bite. Then I ran into a chum who had a bottle of rum...

A long while back, we hired a fresh from college grad who was an immigrant from Vietnam. We were curious that she used her middle finger to point at things but apparently that's how they roll. Imagine a Vietnamese diplomat traveling with the President and stuck in traffic. That poor diplomat would be wondering why everyone was pointing to look up.

Skydivers seem to enjoy the sensation of free falling. However, if their parachutes fail to work, the skydiver pays a huge price.

I'm guessing parachutes can't take sick days.

Koreans have a superstition that leaving a fan on while sleeping causes death.

If the fan ran in reverse, would that cause life?

That would be a pedi-file. Really, the same root for a number of words pertaining to children is the same root pertaining to feet. Like the middle of NC is call the Piedmont, or "foot hills," and pedicure is a type of "foot care." But since children are often at your feet, the root often applies to them too.
