| O-T Lounge|| Rules of the Road - Right of Way edition - Puffoluffagus on 4/14/14 at 9:51 pm|
Figure I would start this topic since in my daily drive I come across two scenarios where the rules allude drivers and near misses happen everyday. And because for one of the scenario I had someone curse me out today(I was Driver B/Scenario 2). Wanted to see if I was in the right or in the wrong.

I'll be moving in the next few months to Richmond, VA. I'll be there for at least 5 years with my fiancee(getting married within a year, been together for over 7 years, so no split in sight). Combined income will roughly be 100-120k.
I guess the main reason we are considering it is that we want a...

| O-T Lounge|| What percentage of people end up within a 50 mile radius of where they grew up? - Puffoluffagus on 8/25/13 at 8:17 pm|
I was thinking 70-80%. If I bumped it up to 100miles maybe 90% at that point.
Just talking to people and asking where they grew up, got me thinking about it. My parents live pretty much where they grew up. I figure the OT is cultured and stuff so they may not fit the above.
Is this just a fa...

In the meantime, I suppose I'll be running with Murray, Brown, and Morris, since Britt is ...
