underground utility lines?

Yup, CATV (Community Antenna Television) apparently.

I didn't think the movie was great, but this view really was.

the question wasn't very clever in the first place ;)

So you went the extra mile to sound ever dumber? I don't get it.

lack of sight in low-light conditions? fear of the dark? Is it the kind of driver who get maximum pleasure to drive two cm behind you with all his light power right in your rearview mirror?

Hopefully not, someone could get hurt, if not from the actual blindness, from an accident resulting from this blindness. And from the cleanliness of the truck I'd say it doesn't see much low-light conditions.

I hope it's trying to compensate for not being able to see in rescue conditions

I don't think so, and welcome back!

I suspect it's because "I CAN BUY LIGHTS IN BULK" - also - thanks! Good to be back in the real world

Back in the 80s, on really hot summer days, the NYFD would come around and open the hydrants for the kids to play in.

NPR bumper stickers correlate highly with bad driving.

Architectural mystery #1: Are those doors hinting at missing balconies or a missing corridor?
#architecture #mystery #street

It is either a very small balcony or a dummy door, I think. Or maybe the architect and all the workers became lazy and finished the house before they were to tired? ;-)

The depth difference between the left and the right wall and the small column on the far left seems to indicate the building should have been rectangular and not stairs-shaped as well...
