I don’t understand the USA, all your roads are straight and all your cities look like they were planned using Excel.
Everyone knows the only way to build a city is to wait until a bunch of tiny villages merge together over centuries and create a sprawling clusterfuck of winding roads that make no sense and have no street signs and are impossible to navigate unless you’ve lived there all your life.
There are actually really good reasons for the fact that our mid-west and western cities are like that, and our eastern cities aren’t, and maybe some time when it’s later in the day and I don’t have a pile of shit I need to be going through I’ll write about it. /thinks boring things are FASCINATING
Well, Chicago is that way because back in the day we burned the fuck down, and the ruling class were like THIS IS A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A GRID.
With, you know, just like, five or six diagonal roads that will fuck everything up.
I’m actually a little teary-eyed about Pittsburgh’s honorary mention.
