    lol, even the day laborers minimum is $10/hr. I'd hate to see how the $5/hr guy does!

    yeah.. 'inflation' is a funny number.. even us 'young' folks like me are used to minimum wage being below $5.. and its actually higher then that now.

    I'd also like to know how we have less then 8% measured inflation rate when I've seen bread go up 50% since I've lived here.. soda up 50%, etc. I guess NoVA is an anonmoly.. but the cost of living here is approaching big-city absurd.

    Flynnibus,

    I am going to remember this post next time you jump on people for hijacking threads and getting off topic.

    Brought this thread back up not to ask a question but rather to make a comment.

    Had a very scary moment yesterday at the Wynridge/Ashburn Village intersection. I was stopped on Ashburn Village heading north and was the only one at the intersection. Looked in every direction, then proceeded into the intersection. Luckily, I did another look to my left and saw a tan Honda Accord approaching on Wynridge. I noticed that the car didn't seem to be slowing, so I decided to stop my progress and make sure this car stopped as well. Obviously, it didn't. She blew thru the intersection without even taking her foot off the gas. And then gave me a weird luck when I laid on the horn as she blew by me.

    Really shook me for a bit. What if I had assumed she was going to stop?

    And it's such a common occurrence. I see people running thru the 4 ways on a regular basis.

    Oh well. Just venting and offering everyone a reminder to never assume people will stop at the 4 ways.
