    Yeah, it's been making its way around fb today. Lots of weird regional things on there -- like, water fountain, really? A water fountain is a flippin' decorative element, not something from which you drink water! Fools. :p

    I've never heard that expression. Obviously this means I must move to the deep south.

    You people call roundabouts traffic circles? Madness.

    Well, there's a difference. A roundabout is a 4 way intersection where you yield to traffic already on the circle. A traffic circle is a circular shaped road with multiple intersections leading into it, all operated via traffic lights. Completely different things, and I don't understand that map saying that they're used to refer to the same thing. They're not.

    In California (and Washington D.C. for that matter) we have traffic circles. I was just in upstate NY where they had a bunch of roundabouts.

    Last place I lived developed a twisted fascination with roundabouts over the years. First it was one. Then another. Then plans for another. And another. Until eventually it seemed the solution for any traffic problem was to turn the intersection into a roundabout.
