I want a Lexus ISF. Saw a blacked out one drive by my work the other night while I was sitting out front on break. Not only do they look bad *** and are comfortable, but they sound bad *** and are pretty quick.

People in Florida suck at math.

Here's the front of an apparently defunct used car lot somewhere in the Orlando area:



And here's the sign near the side of the road at the front of their lot:

Giving expensive things away at the promise that they'll eventually get money in return from people that have a bad record of this isn't smart. the rich should pay for it.

It's a rounding error.

Maybe the 99% sign was printed after they finally rejected someone.

yeah, they approved 100% of the people until the last denial where they had to close up shop.

People in Florida also suck at grammar, particularly those in the communications business. This sign was posted in several locations all throughout *** Radio's building in Miami:

I thought maybe this was a regional variation, but I've searched a number of dictionaries and thesauri, and I can find nothing at all to tell me what the heck a Delly is.

We don't give a **** about spelling here. Foreal. Or composition, Dog.

People in Florida also seem to have a rather distorted notion of the intellect of panthers:



I'm pretty sure that a panther isn't going to give a damn that they've put up a sign, and is going to cross the road wherever it damn well pleases, whether they've established it as an officially-sanctioned panther crosswalk or not.

People in Florida seem to lack common sense in advertising. Here's the back of an Orlando city bus:



Ok, I get it. QR codes are trendy and every mobile phone can read them. But is it really a good idea to encourage people to tailgate busses while fumbling around with their mobile phones just so they can save 50 cents on a copy of the Sunday paper?

(disclaimer: I took this while stopped at a red light.)

Historically, my opinion of DFW has been that it is an efficient but relatively mundane airport. Not a dank pit like LGA or a trivial hole-in-the-wall like SRQ, merely that, while modern and clean, it tends to be rather bland and dull.

Recently, I connected through Terminal D, and I must say that in terms of cool factor, they are now on par with, or perhaps even superior to JFK's Terminal 5.

It's actually a pretty random place. Rather than just being laid out in a broad arc with everything lined up against one wall, it's got an amazing sense of three-dimensionality to it, rather like the central atrium at CLT. There are two free-standing plazas in the corners which feature restaurants and shops on two levels, with nonlinear and quite interesting walkways around them which afford the visitor a wonderful vantage point.

At the top of one of the two plazas there is a restroom which is about the size of a Manhattan studio apartment. And I don't mean the sort of airport restroom with multiple stalls- this is a private one-holer with a locking door, and inside there's a wonderful, calm atmosphere, a bench to sit on, lots of marblework... Just amazing. I wish I'd taken a picture.

They also have this thing, which is a sort of glass labyrinth:



As you walk through the maze, you are surrounded by an interesting aural environment. Most of the ambient noise of the concourse is muted, and you become aware that there's a sort of symphony of nature sounds all around you. Those circles in the floor are speakers, and the sounds move between them giving the illusion that there are invisible creatures running and scampering around through the maze.

Simple things like this amuse me.

That looks so cool. Not that I'd travel to DFW to see it, but I'd certainly check it out if I happened to be there.

If I flew through DFW with the family and my daughter saw that, it would keep her occupied for a long time. She would really like it.
