This is an animation of traffic flows simulated on 30 different kinds of four-way junctions, from two roads intersecting with no traffic lights or signs to complex stacked interchanges that feature very few interactions between individual cars.

*** begin quote ***

Choosing between real and artificial Christmas trees largely comes down to personal preference: do you want that cozy pine smell and hellacious clean-up, or built-in lights with no personal touch but nary a needle on the floor? Personal preference aside, though, there’s someone else who probably cares: Mother Earth.

*** end quote ***

More than anything, why don’t all us “modern Druids” forget about the whole concept of trees.

Didn’t the early Christians steal the concept of a Christmas from the pagans to get them in their movement?
