In high school, my friend's mom told her the "California Stop" was the law

Though we all lived to tell about it.

2. In Massachusetts it was the "red light rule"...

First three cars could go through after the light turned red. It's as legal --and common-- as the California stop.

3. Obviously that is a photoshopped sign...

someone removed the word "Like" from the Stop sign!

4. People are dumb, and I think there's some magic force to make people more dumb when they're driving.

People who do rolling stops drive me crazy. There's an intersection by my parents' house with a flashing red. There's only one way to turn from it onto a one-way street, but people - most people, I'd say - just drive right through the red light. Somehow they must reason that it just doesn't really mean stop.

However, I do remember once in high school me and a friend were able to convince another friend of ours that it was ok to go through a red light at a certain intersection once you'd stopped. We didn't think she'd actually believe us and were pretty fucking scared when she drove through it.
