Nine-day, 62-mile traffic jam in China
Some enterprising (and price-gouging) locals have set up shop along the highway, selling food and drinks at steep prices, though police are patrolling the area around the clock and will remain until the congestion is alleviated. Bored drivers have suggested that "concerts should be held at each congested area every weekend, to alleviate drivers' homesickness" and why stop there? How about a pop-up hotel or a food truck (though a food bicycle might be better to cut through the stalled vehicles) to ameliorate tension and hunger? There won't be any traffic tweet-ups, as the government has blocked Twitter along with a number of other websites.
How would you pass the time in the world's worst traffic jam?
