Nope, this is just my favorite spot to picnic.  Here's your sign.

Well in general if the clip had been longer than a minute and a half there probably would have been grounds on language no matter what the topic but this one is actually remarkably safe for work.  The evil slave drivers probably just don't want you to have any fun a work.  Does the firewall let any YouTube videos through?

 
 
watched it (home for lunch). it wasn't the unsuitable for work issue, it's just really tough to watch/hear anything on youtube there. slows everything down.

Then there's no sense complaining when the city makes a potload of money off of stop signs.

Oh, that shit makes me crazy too.  It makes me crazy that people with IQ's of 14 blabbering on cell phones and slurping coffee are attempting to operate motor vehicles.

People either love it or hate it. I'm a lover and was just talking about this with some friends last night because I picked some up and brought it to their house. I'm usually sick of it by the time Halloween is over, though. I had a little bit here at work too and just ate it along with some Smarties. Smarties are my favorite Halloween candy. Oh, and there was a candy bar set up at the wedding I did on Saturday (well, I set it up...lol) with some candy corn flavored salt water taffy. It was yummy!

I agree except I think most people do come to a complete stop at stop signs. If the payout of a particular intersection gets too low, maybe that's when they put in a yield sign. Except where it affects public safety, of course!
 
Because really, the stop sign you're most likely to run is the one where you can see 1/4 mile in all directions. A more cautious driver will slow down a bit when there are trees etc, so they put up a yield sign to say "it's probably okay" then you roll thru it, the oncoming traffic has to swerve or you cause a fender bender and they gotcha.
 
Okay you can file this under crazy conspiracy theories because my dad was on P&Z "The Stop Sign People" for several years and safety was always the prime directive. If it munged up traffic flow they'd try to mitigate the problem but revenue honestly never came into it. But it's a fun game to play.

They put one in my area a couple years ago and people just don't get it. Every freakin' time I go through there, someone stops at the yield sign when no one is coming. People can be so stupid. I mean, seriously, you have to at least know the difference between these two things to get your license, right?
 

 
This is especially true in Pennsylvania, at least western Pa.  Everyone stops on the acceleration ramp getting onto the freeways. 

They call them acceleration ramps for a reason.  {#Beat}

I think you're just observing the inconsistency in whatever process they use to place the things; I wonder the same thing around here.  Stop signs are - I believe - simply ticket generation devices for cops because virtually no one comes to a complete stop at them and that's all the excuse a traffic cop needs if he happens to be there.
