Predicted as one of the biggest traffic nightmares that Americans ever had to face, Carmageddon was the shutting down of the 405 freeway in a key area of Los Angeles, between the Valley and the West Side. It was suppose to cause ten hour commutes, insane amounts of road rage and, of course, anarchy.
WELL, I SURVIVED IT… and to be honest it was a little bit anti-climatic. Most people chose not to travel that day and to instead just stay home. I used my “off-time” to watch an entire season of Breaking Bad. It was glorious.
Well, two of my favorite news sources, the local news and The Daily Mail, are now reporting that Carmageddon had some unintended consequences… More Babies! 9 months later there has been a mini-baby boom in Los Angeles. This has been reported solely through anecdotal evidence.
A couple, Natasha and Brian Mills have even come forward saying that there baby was conceived during this time. Brian Mills said: ‘We just holed up in the house, kind of sat by the fire and hung out with each other. ‘Natasha Mills added: ‘And the rest, I don’t have to say.’
Whether true or not, there’s nothing more romantic than conceiving your baby during a state of extreme traffic backup where one becomes so frustrated they feel the world is collapsing around them.
