Tell me about it. I'm frequently on what to me is "the most obscure road
in the entire universe", yet there always seem to be lots of people who
need to drive down it, presumably with much more purpose than "just
seeing what's there". What do all these people do? Also how on earth
does Royal Mail manage to collect mail from all those post boxes and
deliver it to all those letter boxes every day?!
