Re: “WTF: Is Mike Myers Now a Vermonter?

I can confirm with 100% certainty that Mike Myers does have a house on Mallet's Bay in Colchester. How do I know this? Because my dad owns the house right next door to him and has seen him multiple times on the property but never to talk to yet, so there you go, rumor put to rest and no I will not divulge the address, there are a lot of houses on the bay so good luck finding it!

Re: “WTF: What Are Those Train Cars by the Moran Plant?

I've lived my whole life (thus far) in central and northern Vermont and I've never heard of the Omya mines near Rutland. I wish you'd had room in the article to at least summarize that situation! From some cursory online perusal, it sounds like a pretty ugly affair. Great article otherwise!

Re: “WTF: Why Is Public Nudity Legal in Vermont But Public Disrobing Isn't?

The laws of man make no sense. The nude person can wear a back pack with clothing in it and other things. They can put a towel on the chair or put on a pair of pants. They can then take them off when they get up from the bench or chair. What is the problem? We live in a nude universe.

Re: “WTF: What Do Cyclists' Hand Signals Mean?

@ Katelin Brewer-Colie I don't know why you mention the AARP. Older drivers are far more likely to know these signals than younger ones. Just in general, though, if a cyclist is having to interact with cars, he's risking his life. The laws say that bicycles have to use the street like cars, but if you ride a bike and you want to do it safely, BREAK THAT LAW.

Great article; just an addition that Burlington did adopt safe passing of 4 ft.

Re: “WTF: What Do Cyclists' Hand Signals Mean?

These are in the Vermont Driver's Manual and have been there for decades, these signals should not be a "WTF" moment but common driver knowledge. The fact that this is a mystery to some is further evidence that we need to re-test drivers every few years for knowledge of laws (emphasis on recent law changes) and vision. Good luck getting that past the AARP.

Re: “WTF: What Do Cyclists' Hand Signals Mean?

The described hand signals are the same hand signals that used to be part of the Motor Vehicle manual and required knowledge to pass the driver's test.
Perhaps bike rider certification should be required as well?

It's also important to note that the large majority of the baseball season exists outside the time in which students are in session.

Re: “WTF: Why Is Public Nudity Legal in Vermont But Public Disrobing Isn't?

I totally agree with Marie's W Smith above. The body shaming really makes no sense and needs to end. And using negative terms like junk to describe a man's penis and testicles is degrading also.

I was offended by the use of the term "incidences."

Re: “WTF: Georgia's Unfinished Castle?

It is to bad it's not finished it is so beautiful . it is such a shame and a waste that no one is wanting to finishing it after the man from IBM did his best to finish. One day a rich man we hope will take care of this wonderful castle to the end . when that happens it probably will be in the new paper and TV one day and people enjoying the looks of this castle.

Re: “WTF: Why Has the Construction Project on Shelburne Road Stalled?

The place should be torn down completely. His parents are horrible people who emotionally tortured and neglected the unfortunate disabled people who lived there because there were no other places to go.

Re: “WTF: Why Is Public Nudity Legal in Vermont But Public Disrobing Isn't?

I agree 100%, that term "junk" for men's genitals has always bothered me and I refuse to use it.

Re: “WTF: Why is there a bowling-ball pyramid on Route 58?

I wonder if he's a freemason. They incorporate pyramid and triangular shapes into a lot of business logos and designs.

Re: “WTF: Why Is That House by the Winooski Bridge Jacked Up?

It is weird and inaccurate to call this building a "house". It is an industrial building that for most of its life has been in commercial use. Apartments have been added later, as has happened to most of the mills in Winooski, but we wouldn't call the Chase Mill a "house".
