That was worse only in the sense of image quality, and then only if you'd insist on missing the point.

My take on 1814:

I can't agree--it is much worse. Very funny, too. :D

I have a friend a bit like this--gets mail in one town, at a Post Office Box, lives in another town. Getting the street address was, well, you'd have thought i was an ax murderer planning a tour. Or at least planning to give the address to an ax murderer. I have it, though, nice to be trusted.

I can remember when directions to my grandparents place would have been something like:

Take the gravel road north from Leiter, Wyoming. When you come to the wye, bear left. Go 24 miles until you come to the corrugated iron mailbox. Take the two-lane rut to the right until you come to a house. That's them.


(No house there anymore.) As it turned out, many years later, the gravel road did have a name (Passaic Road) but no one who lived on it knew what it was until I was around 18.
