Alright, there are a lot of dumbass bikers, but dumbass drivers have no right to talk about bad interactions with bikers. Anyone who has to swerve to "avoid" a biker who's riding 1-2 feet away from the far right side immediately qualifies as a bad driver and doesn't deserve to have their opinions heard on the matter. Besides, it's well accepted that people think they're much, much better drivers than they actually are. :-b

This is the silliest conversation ever. There are idiots in cars and there are idiots on bikes. The difference to me is that the idiots on bikes are generally an annoying inconvenience when I'm driving. When I'm biking, the idiots in cars are potentially deadly.

Has anybody mentioned how some people need to encroach into your lane or go across the road in order to just make a turn? They act like they're driving a semi and need a huge berth. :-t

A couple of others: things breaking down around the house (past week - lawn mower, the weed wacker and a part of the pool plumbing) and people paying with checks ahead of you in line at the store after you've already waited 15 minutes because the idiots don't have someone working the express lane and the cow ahead of you is stocking up for a month. ;-7

Speaking of express lanes...why on earth do 90 percent of them say "15 (or whatever) items or less"? Is everyone an idiot? The word is fewer...15 items or fewer.

Absolutely. It just bugs me when people blame their terrible driving on perfectly well-behaved bikers like myself (usually).

If you dress in full spandex gear then it is your fault. It's hard to drive in a safe manner when you're laughing hysterically. :-b

I don't hate doing laundry but it's the ironing that sucks. And in Taiwan there are very few dryers so almost everything is guaranteed to be wrinkly. And doing the dishes. 10x worse than laundry.

For the most part the bike paths suck for actually riding on. There are some good ones but a lot of them are dangerous to ride at fast speeds because of slow bicycles (picture the family of 6 weaving all over the path), walkers, rollerbladers (I've been run off a bike path by a pair taking up the whole path), families using them to bbq on (do they really need a paved surface?), they weren't designed for fast cycling (twisty sections), crossing major roads but not at stoplights and a dozen other issues. I can understand the issues with the idiots that disobey the basic rules of the road but it's really not that hard to give a cyclist a couple of feet when passing them (and not swerve to the opposite shoulder).

Count nouns versus mass nouns - good eye. ;-D
