Oh, Portland Cement concrete highways are fookin dangerous in The Frozen White North! The joints get so large in the cold that they make a monotonous thump when driven upon and lull people to sleep. Besides that, any injuneer knows they just ain't gonna work where the sun don't shine so it's a $ thing fer yer crooked polynicians eh?

As fer parking garages, who don't get stemie over them? I got a cool story about a parking garage design problem while I was at the Hallowed Halls of UNB (U Need Brians) but it involves only ONE student out of over 80 getting a perfect assessment on the weekly assignment and I don't like to boast. It was ME! I solved it in less than twenty minutes by myself while groups of many worked on it for hours and came up short... apparently, I was the only one that knew it got too fuckin cold in the winter to meet the space requirements so I said, "Assume enclosed, heated space." 10/10. Yeah... I know... my bad.

(There is a reason that story is special to me but I'll save for my memoiries.)
