Ok... Seeing as youtube screwed up the contrast/brightness I'll just tell you guys what it says:
I understood the quasi-musical quote of the Strauss horn concerto as background music for the road trip video. But nowhere is there anything in the video clip "strange written on the highway", strange or otherwise.

If you want to play mind games, I might point out that what you say is visible to you on the highway might not be visible to everyone here.

Unless perhaps you are smoking something the rest of us are not?

If you say something is present, prove what is there. Unless I missed something, the video shows nothing "strange written on the highway".

I'll post some screenshots from it.




Keep up the good work there buddy

I'll see if I cant upload a better quality video.
That happens almost in the blink of an eye.

OK. Now rather than remaining cryptic, please tell us what the message means.

I was very confused.

Now that I've seen the video (and understood most of the individual references), I'm still no wiser as to what the message as a whole means when those references are thrown together.

I do hope that Kristen and Ryan are OK, whoever they may be.

Why didn't someone run over them. After all, it takes some time to write that much nonsense. Must be a little used road.

Driving on emerald cost region.

This is the lowest form of skill driving Ive ever been exposed to area wide.
No turn signals used, Own the road mentallity, cant drive on water in any form.Etc. etc. this is a solid 60% of the populace very scary!
But thier worst habbit is in merge lanes. Dont match traffic speed or decellerate. just expect traffic flow to make allowance for thier idiocracy.
Yesterday I watched some jack in a box try to force a semi who was dedicated to the lane move over onto side traffic even swerving within inches of semi front steer tire. this continued up the rumblestrip about 400 yards without them accellerating or decellerating till they came to a bridge. Where they stopped and all of us onlookers finally got by the scene.
And no this isnt a truckers fault before anyone says so this car caused him to lock down the brakes and accelerate trying to get by them they constantly matched his speeds.

Stupid or crazy you decide.

Strangest thing I saw in the video is that everyone's driving on the wrong side of the road.

Cool

Typical American comment. People from other countries would say they are driving on the left vs the right. Americas say they are driving on the WRONG side of the road.
