Oh Boy, The Traffic Is Back!

Remember that line at the end of Back to the Future where Doc Brown says "Roads?  Where we're going, we don't need roads."  Sadly, he was referring to a 2015 utopia that will never materialize (I'm keeping my fingers crossed for those fly clothes, though).  Instead, where we live today, you can't even use the roads.  See below - that's after I paid my taxi driver a little sumthin'-sumthin' to make his own lane in that little thing we call the "desert".  Time is money!

If traffic and restaurant reservations are any indication, Dubai is back.  I don't think that holds true for jobs and bonuses, but fingers are crossed for that all over the city.  Of course, if you do get a nice shiny new job, you'll have find a way to actually get there.

P.S. - While digging up photos for the post, I came across this incredibly ironic picture of the Back to the Future Delorean stuck in traffic - personalized license plate and all:

If traffic is the ultimate indicator,then Washington DC is back, too. Way back.

An old cigarette commercial tag line went, "I'd walk a mile for a Camel". 'Sounds like camels and walking might again become the preferred modes of transport over there.

P.S. Didn't you mean "McFly clothes"?
