"There is no desire or advantage to build roads that don't need to be rebuilt very few years."

Speak for yourself on that one. I, and MILLIONS of others in the USA, want roads that last more than "very few years".
Living through reconstruction of the roadway (or rather, lack thereof as it falls apart and its cracks filled with tar) is a ridiculous and laughable.

I'm the same way. I got my gmail account back when you had to be invited. I was going to use it as a spam catcher account but I noticed quickly that no matter what I did nothing bad was really coming through. I've used it as my primary account for over 8 years now, and I think maybe 4-5 emails made it through.

eh, it depends. It's an avenue of art, so you could compare it to graffiti or charcoal drawings.
Sure, there are at least 70% of them that are basically warpaint in another form, 20% that resemble something more than warpaint but are forgettable, then there are the 10% that are basically the persons inner being personified as art outside.
