eight miles per hour

yet more evidence that society is rapidly improving:
The speed limit in New York City was eight miles per hour in 1895 (according to "real fact" in my Snapple bottle today)

and yet more evidence that things stay the same:
while the speed limit in NYC today is about 5 times faster than in 1895, good luck driving faster than 2 miles an hour going across town in rush hour.

    If a man comes to your front door and says he is conducting a survey And asks you to show him your bum, do not show him your bum. This is a scam. He only wants to see your bum. I wish I had got this yesterday. I feel so stupid and cheap.
