on a lighter note

US Highway 101, which is the primary route from the city of San Francisco to the assorted industrial parks and exurbs of Silicon Valley, is technically named the Bayshore Freeway.

What it actually is, is the Highway of Diminishing Returns. Observe:

Leaving San Francisco (the corner of 4th & Mission) at 8:30, our hero curses his way through stop-and-go traffic all the way to Mountain View, and arrives at the GooglePlex at 10:00am on the dot.

On a later day, having slept through his alarm, our intrepid adventurer runs unshaved out of the house at 9:30am, and arrives in Mountain View at… 10:10am.

Draw your own snappy conclusions, I’m just happy that I’m now taking the shuttle and don’t have to worry about this any more.
