Intersects

This post from N__B was a helpful one for me, as I am now doing some family-type stuff in Calgary and Calgary sucks. Where I am right now the sidewalk simply disappears once you exit from a main road: clearly there is no use for walking, and woe betide the pedestrian who wants to risk death trundling or rolling through the suburban wastes to the nearby Dairy Queen for a sundae. Really, best to drive the block-and-a-half.

But back to N__B's post, which, apart from the usual death, was about the injustice around what real estate gets used for.

Lately I pass through a certain intersection, which at rush hour is busy while the rest of the day leaves each section of road involved pretty jaywalkable. It is big. What else could fit there?

For some reason Google Maps likes to scale Brooklyn and Calgary a little differently, so with a little brute force and a lot of imprecision we scale The Biggest Penis in Brooklyn (outlined in throbbing red) to a typically boring Calgarian intersection like this:



So then the game is to figure out how many of Ned's penises - granted generous size compensation I think - you can fit into this intersection. The northwest corner is kind of hilly, but that didn't stop New Yorkers: WILL IT STOP YOU?

Plenty of oil available. Simply pay one slow choking planetary death.
