Hey, you obviously don't know much about GMU. It's known nationwide (and worldwide) for the business, law, and economics schools. And after this past March, for the basketball team too!

Or maybe you're an idiot. The person to talk to was the guy who "jumped out in front of your car", though I somehow doubt that's what actually happened.

There's nothing worthwhile in the area. Just suck it up and go to Vermont.

I've "heard" that if you're staying straight on Point Pleasant you can go around the traffic circle at 50MPH without problem. Seems kinda pointless in a 25MPH zone if that's the case.

Gravis, you're too stupid to debate with, and I don't feel like trying to reply to your poorly formatted posts. You do not exhibit the ability to read or comprehend the English language. You make one inane comment, and when you get torn into because of it, you change your position and state that you *actually* meant something completely different. I don't feel like going up this page to quote
