I think it doesn't need a new traffic sign. Triangle with additional 4-way sign will do the job, it's the same like hexagon with 4-way sign. There is plenty of them around here, they are not necessary and they are annoying.

Anytime I hear someone spouting off numbers and percentages I start to feel like they're trying to sell me on something that I might not really wanna be sold on. You can make numbers and percentages support just about anything if you talk fast enough and thow enough numbers at your audience. It's a tried and true used car salesman tactic.

I was just reading that 72.4% of the people feel the same way!

So . . . what will it take for me to get you into a new car . . . I mean to try this new yield sign . . . today?

If finances are an issue I'm pretty sure if you put 5% down we can finance the rest at a very attractive rate . . . so what were you thinking for a monthly payment. . . . ;)

Alright, so I watched and stopped when he said that the average salaray is $20/ hour. What country is this guy presenting this in that has an average salary that high? This certainly couldn't be the US.

Average.

That means you take the high and add it to the low. You must of heard this from your guy. Spread the wealth a little.

Average.

I thought the same thing. As far as I am concerned $20/hr is pretty high. I would be happy to be back over $10. <GASP>

If you add bonuses for CEOs of bailout banks you will get $20 average. So if you earn $10 you know who has your other $10 now :)
