07:44 pm - I like traffic lights, no matter where they've been
Here's something weird I encounter every now and then: people who don't understand horizontal traffic lights. They're used to traffic lights arranged vertically, but then one day they encounter them arranged horizontally, and they say, "That doesn't make sense! Doesn't that confuse color-blind people?"
No, it doesn't. Just as the red light is always on top on vertical lights, the red light is always on the left on horizontal lights. How do people not know this?
