18. I spent a chunk of last week driving for a business trip . . .

Interstates in KS, OK and TX were patchy - decent for stretches of 20-25 miles, then just plain lousy for even longer. You know that quick "thud-thud-thud-thud-thud" you get at highway speeds? That would go on for half an hour or more, depending on location.

The cities were substantially worse. Ft. Worth's roads were basically appalling - big cracks and potholes in abundance on city streets outside downtown - and Tulsa was right down there as well.

Massive road construction in both cities, so they're at least investing in the interstates in and around metro areas, but they're both in low-tax states, so once again, I guess people are getting what they're paying for.
