    Down near the Foxboro turnoff state highway 128 ("America's Technology Highway") East runs West while joined to 95 North.

    The Devil's Triangle? If that is what you are referring to, they made that really nice, finally.

    For the non-locals, yes, that is what it was known as. One of the more dangerous intersections in the state.

    That's well beyond stupidity. Those are obvious criminal psychopaths. Just snuff them out and save everybody the trouble of counting the bodies they leave later in life.

    You live in GDO.

    Believe me, those on the west side, especially in that area, know that term.

    This could probably be cross posted into four or five different threads here...

    A 28 year old Wichita man was killed by police after his address was erroneously posted as the residence of another person, who was "swatted" by someone in California after an argument in a money game of call of duty, where the winner would receive around $1.50.

    They did, and he's made bomb threats in the past.

    Give him 20-life for second degree murder. Certainly first degree manslaughter.

    Video game addicts are some of the worst people I met in college. Screaming and throwing the controller when they would lose a match. Calling each other "f@ggot" and "whore". Teabagging the avatars of opponents they just "killed". Just gross, immature people.

    Is that were they put in a traffic circle or is that where they put in a diverging diamond?

    MN DOT put a circle south of Moorhead on US 75 at a major county route crossing and t-bones (and deaths) are way down; there are however about the same number of side-smears on the circle (which are far more survivable).

    MN DOT also replaced the US 75 (aka 8th Street ) at I-94 interchange with a diverging diamond. I haven't heard much about how that's going for folks. I've driven it a couple times; it's iffy when the snow is covering the lines and you're not sure if those around you are familiar with the layout.

    I'm learning to like circles finally. My bias against began because my first exposure to them was Latham Circle in the NY Capital District. I'm not sure if it was the circle as much as the mess where NY 7 meets I-87. (see linked map)

    I am aware of that, but many times out-of-towners aren't aware of that.

    Hopefully somebody guilty of swatting has to pay for the deployment of the personnel and equipment (easily tens of thousands of dollars) and would be responsible for injury / loss of life.

    I'd ask what is wrong with people but we all know what is wrong with people. They're people.

    They put in a circle in my old town after our daughter was almost killed. The circle was perfect until they planted flowers on a mound in the center, blocking all visibility and turning it into a different death trap. You can't fix stupid.

    They do that on purpose to prevent the use of the "direct route" (going straight through). I've been told it's usually big trucks that claim to not be able to navigate the circle that do it, ... and drunk drivers.
