The city is shutting down the 405 from the 101 to the 10 this upcoming weekend to do some major construction work for 48 hours straight, and Angelenos are calling it Carmegeddon. Now, I've heard from some older folks here that when chaos was predicted for the 84 Olympics, and the Pope's visit some time after that, everyone was advised to stay at home. Those who did venture out, claimed it was the best commute of their entire lives.
Some people are also very excited about this, as it promotes staying in one's neighborhood and enjoying some physical activity and local commerce.
Some other people, are making videos to help understand what this freeway closure means to Adolf Hitler. Watch and laugh your head off.
