For those burning topics that just don't quite require a thread of their own.
Fair enoughbowesst said:Last week I was walking down Beacon Street in the Back Bay, towards Kenmore Square. All of the sudden I look up and see a huge pick up truck driving past me (toward the State House). For those of you who don't understand what that means - he was driving the wrong way on a one way street. As the truck passed I turned around to see if he was going to realize what he was doing. He had New Hampshire plates...but I'm sure they could have just as easily been Maine plates. :wink:
i know exactly what you mean. being in boston is sorta like a free pass to disregard the traffic laws. no signal, tailgating, honking...you have to if you wish to survive, there arent any friendly maine drivers down there (who youd probably know if you pulled up next to them at a redlight) haha.Corey said:Driving in Massachusetts is so much fun. I honk my horn at everything and drive much more recklessly than I do at home.

"The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions," the official said.
"A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery."
The incident, Sunday evening when the zoo was packed with visitors, was the first of its kind at the attraction. Lions and tigers are kept in an "animal island" protected by thick concrete blocks.
Very, Very different. In fact, Roxbury & West Roxbury don't even share a border.Patrick said:i thought roxbury was a very dangerous and murderous section of boston....but that house looks like it is in a very nice neighborhood...is west roxbury dramatically different from roxbury?
