The Meshanticut Interchange is a highway interchange complex in Cranston, Rhode Island, USA. It was one of the first interchange complexes in Rhode Island, opening around the same time as the Olneyville Bypass, the RI 2/RI 117 interchange and relocated RI 3 (now I-95) (and long after the Point Street Viaduct, opened in 1940 [1]), and has not been changed since its opening in the early 1950s. The interchange is named after Meshanticut Brook, which flows through it.

RI 2 and RI 5 pass through the interchange, and RI 33 merges with RI 2 south of the crossing with RI 5. RI 3 was originally concurrent with RI 2 through it; RI 33 was originally RI 3A. RI 2 north of the interchange and RI 33 to the south are known as New London Avenue or New London Turnpike (part of the old Providence and Pawcatuck Turnpike); RI 2 is Bald Hill Road to the south, and RI 5 is Oaklawn Avenue.

The interchange has high-speed ramps connecting RI 2 on the south to RI 5 on the north; RI 5 was the western bypass of the Providence area before I-295 was built, and RI 2 was the main road south and southwest from Providence.

A section of the old Providence and Pawcatuck Turnpike connects RI 2 to the north with RI 5. Across RI 5, the road dead ends; before the interchange it continued onto RI 33. A section of old Bald Hill Road (RI 2) splits from RI 5 just south of this turnpike crossing, and connects to several shopping centers.

[edit] Plot
Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Chloe Lawrence (Mary-Kate Olsen) is a very driven teenager and leader of her high school's Model United Nations team. After performing particularly well in a competition, the team is selected to attend the international Model UN competition in London, England. One of the team members, however, is unable to attend. Chloe's twin sister, Riley (Ashley Olsen), steps in to fill the gap – to get closer to Chloe's attractive teammate, Brian, more than anything else. When the group arrives in London, they discover that someone is already representing their usual country: China. Undaunted, they improvise and end up representing England. Plenty of sight-seeing and shopping ensues, while Chloe takes a fancy to James Browning, the son of an English noble, Lord Browning, who is being pressured by his father to achieve more. As the competition progresses, Chloe's over-competitive nature stalls her budding romance, Riley tries to get closer to Brian, and the team earns both admiration and anger for their unconventional methods. Nevertheless, tribulations are weathered and lessons learned about sportsmanship, overlooked friends, and learning to enjoy one's youth.

Thomas Davidson (May 17, 1817 - October 14, 1885), British palaeontologist, was born in Edinburgh.

His parents possessed considerable landed property in Midlothian. Educated partly in the university of Edinburgh and partly in France, Italy and Switzerland, and early acquiring an interest in natural history, he benefited greatly by acquaintance with foreign languages and literature, and with men of science in different countries.

He was induced in 1837, through the influence of Leopold von Buch, to devote his special attention to the brachiopoda, and in course of time he became the highest authority on this group. The great task of his life was the Monograph of British Fossil Brachiopoda, published by the Palaeontographical Society (1850-1886). This work, with supplements, comprises six quarto volumes with more than 200 plates drawn on stone by the author.

He also prepared an exhaustive memoir on Recent Brachiopoda, published by the Linnean Society. He was elected FRS in 1857. He was awarded in 1865 the Wollaston medal by the Geological Society of London, and in 1870 a Royal medal by the Royal Society; and in 1882 the degree of LL.D. was conferred upon him by the university of St Andrews.

He died at Brighton on the 14 October 1885, bequeathing his fine collection of recent and fossil brachiopoda to the British Museum.

Pele

Frogman Henry, Monday, 12 March 2007 08:05 (eleven years ago) Permalink

This thread is making me doubt people's sanity. The most sensible answer so far would seem to be Yoko Ono -- to the extent that people seem to think they know what her music sounds like, even though most have pretty much zero experience with it.

A world where I live freely amongst a race of psychotic shitting half-monky half-koalas. Where Prurient and Magik Markers blare from community speakers in the streets, we dance, eat berries and drink crystal clear water from our streams, It's a simple life, and good.

Todd Rundgren is famous because he deserves to be...

henry s, Tuesday, 13 March 2007 00:27 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I think we did the reverse of this once - "Everyone has heard their music - only a minority actually know who they are". For instance: the Timelords - everyone's heard "Doctorin' the Tardis" at sporting events, but how many people would even recognize the title?

But for the question on this thread: I agree Yoko is probably the best answer so far. Within music snob circles, I'd say maybe Stockhausen.

"Everyone" = most people in your average queue at the bus stop (or local equivalent). Which is why Yoko Ono is the best answer yet. Pete Doherty as well possibly.
