"I was following the directional drive through arrows, and then I guess I kind of got lost? Oh wait, I guess we didn't have drive thru windows, Starbucks, or even McDonald's during the early 19th century!" -- February 6, 2013

"Oh wait, I guess we didn't have drive thru windows, Starbucks, or even McDonald's during the early 19th [sic] century!" -- this only makes sense (if not humor) in reference to the scene depicted, which is from the twentieth century, i.e. 1901-2000.
