>Even been to or lived in Atlanta????? It's all true!
>- - Atlanta, USA - -
>This is for anyone who lives in Atlanta,
>Georgia, has ever lived in Atlanta, has ever
>visited Atlanta, ever plans to visit Atlanta,
>knows anyone who already lives in Atlanta, or
>knows anyone who has ever heard of Atlanta.
>Atlanta is composed mostly of one-way
>streets. The only way to get out of downtown
>Atlanta is to turn around and start over when
>you reach Greenville, South Carolina.
>All directions start with, "Go down Peachtree"
>and include the phrase, "When you see the Waffle
>House." Except that in Cobb County , where all
>directions begin with, "Go to the Big Chicken."
>Peachtree Street has no beginning and no end and is not to be confused with:
> > Peachtree Circle
> > Peachtree Place
> > Peachtree Lane
> > Peachtree Road
> > Peachtree Parkway
> > Peachtree Run
> > Peachtree Terrace
> > Peachtree Avenue
> > Peachtree Commons
> > Peachtree Battle
> > Peachtree Corners
> > New Peachtree
> > Old Peachtree
> > West Peachtree
> > Peachtree-Dunwoody
> > Peachtree-Chamblee
> > Peachtree Industrial Boulevard
>Atlantans only know their way to work and their
>way home. If you ask anyone for directions, they
>will always send you down Peachtree.
>Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola. Coke's all
>they drink there so don't ask for any other soft
>drink unless it's made by Coca-Cola. Even if
>you want something other than a Coca-Cola, it's still called Coke.
>The gates at Atlanta 's Hartsfield International
>Airport are about 32 miles away from the Main
>Concourse, so wear sneakers and pack a lunch.
>The 8 am rush hour is from 6:30 to 10:30 AM.
>The 5 pm rush hour is from 3:00 to 7:30 PM. Fri
>day's rush hour starts Thursday afternoon and lasts through 2 am Saturday.
>Only a native of Atlanta can pronounce Ponce De
>Leon Avenue , so do not attempt the Spanish
>pronunciation. People will simply tilt their
>heads to the right and stare at you. The Atlanta
>pronunciation is "pawntz duh LEE-awn."
>And yes, they have a street named simply, "Boulevard."
>The falling of one raindrop causes all drivers
>to immediately forget all traffic rules. If a
>single snowflake falls, the city is paralyzed
>for three days and it's on all the channels as a
>news flash every 15 minutes for a
>week. Overnight, all grocery stores will be
>sold out of milk, bread, bottled water, toilet paper, and beer.
>I-285, the loop that encircles Atlanta, which
>has a posted speed limit of 55 mph (but you have
>to maintain 80 mph just to keep from getting run
>over), is known to truckers as "The Watermelon 500."
>Don't believe the directional markers on
>highways: I-285 is marked East and West but you
>may be going North or South. The locals
>identify the direction by referring to the "Inner Loop" and the "Outer Loop ."
>If you travel on Hwy 92 North, you will actually be going southeast.
>Never buy a ladder or mattress in Atlanta
>. Just go to one of the interstates and you
>will soon find one in the middle of the road.
>The last thing you want to do is give another
>driver the finger, unless your car is armored,
>your trigger finger is itchy and your AK-47 has a full clip.
>Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
>There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Georgia .
>There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000
>live in Georgia , plus a couple no one has seen before.
>If it grows, it sticks.
>If it crawls, it bites.
>If you notice a vine trying to wrap itself
>around your leg, you have about 20 seconds to
>escape, before you are completely captured and
>covered with Kudzu,another ill-advised "import,"
>like the Carp, Starling, English Sparrow, and other 'exotic wonders'.
>It's not a shopping cart, it's a buggy.
>"Fixinto" is one word (I'm fixinto go to the store).
>Sweet Tea is appropriate for all meals and you
>start drinking it when you're 2 years old.
>"Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"
>"Momma-nem" means: How's Mother and all of the
>other children and other members of the family doing.
>If you understand these jokes, forward them to
>your friends from Atlanta , Georgia and those who just wish they were.
>Lordy, I love ATLANTA !
