1. Wow, those rings are really incredibly cool. How on earth (har har) does one go about getting "Gibeon meteorite" for this sort of thing, or is that just a name? The fact that one of you made them just makes it even more impressive.
2. I've only visited Boston once, over a couple of days, but "traffic flow is irrational, largely unmanaged and often systemically unmanageable" definitely corresponds with my memories of the place, from both a driving and walking perspective. I never used the MBTA though, luckily.
