|Part of the Jerry Seinfeld Interstate Highway System|
|West End: Harrisburg...ish?|
|Major Junctions: I-81, I-476 , I-95|
|East End: Comes to a screeching halt in New York|
Interstate 78 was created for the purpose of exiling convicts from New York and New Jersey to the convict settlements in the middle of Pennsyltucky. The number 78 is in honor of the number of years of the prison sentence. The journey on I-78 west for civilization to nowhere is a forgettable one, but one from which most people never return, as convicts over time forget about the existence of Jews, Italians, or black people, and therefore can never again function as a New Yorker. Convicts over time also forget to ignore fellow white people as they did in their own home.
Driving the Road
Traveling west on I-78 commits yourself to a gradual exit from civilization. The exact location of the last civilization along the road is debated, but is believed by many to be somewhere near Allentown, though educated New Yorkers claim it is only as far as Newark.
Travel guides recommend that to truly experience Pennsylvania, you should take off your seat belt soon after crossing the border. Inevitably, you will run out of gas and stop at a gas station somewhere in Pennsylvania. The shock comes when you read the tattoo on the gas station worker, which may read something like "Rape Rox". Horrified, you turn back and return to your suburban bore that you call home.
- Interstate 278 - The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway - no problems here. But then you have...
- ...Interstate 478 - The Brooklyn Battery Tunnel. Seriously! It's it's own interstate!
- Interstate 678 - The Van Wyck Expressway. Again, not so bad, but...
- ..."Interstate" 878 - The approach to JFK airport. Not worthy to be called and interstate.
So what is so wrong with all of these (besides trying to make tunnels and ramps into interstates)? None of them connect to I-78, so they are all
aborted orphaned wrong. This is the direct result of some moron planning to build I-78 right through the middle of Lower Manhattan and through the rest of New York.
