Man, I've never seen a freeway have a 90-degree turn like that (and not only one, but two turns). Wow, that's unbelievable... I'm so glad they softened those two curves out in Chicago.

Just like none of use have ever seen a forum member take a 90-degree turn on a thread topic like you do.

Another person attacking me. Yawn.

Why is that?

I would love to see your examples of all my supposed 90-degree turns.

BTW, you're the one causing the 90-degree turn here. So, you're just as guilty... You could have IMED me, and not put this here, if the "preservation of threads" was so, so precious to you. But, no...

And, I KNEW somebody would jump on me later & take a jab, the minute I said "Back to the Crossroads development..." on the Crossroads thread today. You fulfilled that. People are so predictable to me. I'm very psychologically-orientated, with no apology whatsoever.

Branching off topic now & then is inevitable, because branching-off information relates to the core topic.

I'm going to watch EVERY move you make on here now. You better stay on PERFECT course -- every time. Or, you'll likely be viewed as just a "major hypocrite" in people's eyes. You've done it to yourself. Not my problem.

Anyone else read where the article claims Omaha has the world's largest zoo? I mean subjectively the world's best zoo is better than the objectively largest (which it isn't).

And Rockharbor, you crack me up. You tend to ramble and talk about all six sides of a dice at the same time. I don't think anyone doesn't appreciate your input here though...?

Why don't they clean the graffiti underneath the 480 bridge? I think that might draw more people to the riverfront.

While they're at it they should create an art contest for local artists to paint underneath the viaduct.

I like how you said that ("six sides of a dice"). Perfect way to say it... I am that way. I think about things -- in depth. I can't help it. If I "dumb myself down" people often seem happier with me. But, I shouldn't have to "dumb myself down." Working for different companies, in the pre-hiring process, I've taken plenty of intelligence-level tests that have shown plenty of good things I'm personally happy about...w/out me ever thinking I'm the smartest guy around. I'm definitely not. Also, I don't have to take "punches" (jabs) from people on here, when I'm not jabbing anyone -- period. I'm plenty cordial, respectful, and a "team player" on this forum. I simply like to discuss things, I acknowledge other people's points, I don't always think I'm right, and I'm not afraid of being wrong -- and that's more than I can say for a lot of people I observe in life. So, there shouldn't be any problem.

Anyways, I've heard Omaha's zoo is #1 in the nation now, even over San Diego. That's impressive & something to be proud of. Funny, I grew up around such a top-notch zoo that whatever US city I visit, I don't even think about visiting their zoo, unless I'm in San Diego -- because I know I won't be impressed.

According to Trip Advisor's survey it was #1 in the world, lol.

I haven't been to San Diego's, never made it that far south from LA but, been to a few other zoos and I always thought I hated zoos. Until I was dragged to Omaha's and LOVED it.

On the topic of Henry Doorly being the largest, it is one of the largest with over 17,000 animals and 962 species.

Omaha's zoo is FAB -- period. If you argue that, you better have a better zoo lined-up to show us.

Oh, wait... There isn't one. :)

Point made.

I am glad they are putting more of an effort toward events, but the riverfront looks sad right now with the empty lot. They really should bite the bullet and at least sod the former Rick's site until a plan comes along because it looks bad right now.

That's good, first things first we need to get events going on down there as often as possible. It's not as exciting as The Fifth but it's more important and in time it can go a long way with helping future aspirations.
