Here in Trolling 101, I'd like to introduce you to two examples of a basic trolling technique.  #1, from Headso, is the more simplistic of the two and sets the hook by attempting to "blame the victim" based on conjecture alone.  #2 from JohnAnnArbor does the same, but adds a layer of misdirection by faking an attempt to placate the other side.

Master these techniques and you'll be ready to move onto the intermediate class.

They may or may not pay road taxes (don't know the situation in the UK), but they also cause little to no wear on the roads and contribute little to no pollution into the equation. They're free riders, sure, but they're practically free in the other direction too.

CSB time:

There's a curvy, hilly four-lane divided highway here (Highway 360 for you Austinites). This highway, with highway speed limits and highway traffic, is a popular place for cyclists to ride their bikes on the shoulder because who doesn't think mixing cars going 60mph with cycles isn't a good idea?

Anyway, traffic was at a standstill on this road. I was making a left-hand turn across two lanes of traffic - cars had stopped for a red light a quarter of a mile down the road and traffic was backed up quite a way, but two drivers had stopped short enough (as they should) to make a gap for people turning left at this intersection (one of those ones that crosses the median) into the apartment complex where I lived.

I turn left and as I inch forward and check the shoulder, then start to cross it, a cyclist, who is riding in the shoulder whizzing past the stopped cars in a hilly area where there's no way I could see him over the cars stopped and the hill he's cresting hits my car and goes flying over my hood. Thank God he was wearing a helmet, or he would've been killed. He was thankfully unharmed.

As it was, his bike was totalled and he went to the ER to get checked out. The cops on the scene refused to give me a ticket because they agreed that there was no possible way I could've seen him since he was lower than all the stopped cars and coming over a hill, and he shouldn't have been zooming past stopped cars in the shoulder heading towards an intersection.

I stopped to help though, that's for damn sure.

I think the businesses involved in the commerce of selling cycles and cycle equipment/accessories would disagree.

Yeah, laws made for two-ton vehicles powered by dino juice and not actual muscle. Turn off your AC and break a sweat and maybe I'll listen.

yeah I get that some people use their bikes for work, but the vast majority I see are in packs exercising. If the only time people biked  was for work and commerce then there'd be no problems. I mean yeah, the ones biking to work are hurting the environment by making single car that passes them put on their brakes but still I can forgive it.

If you do not do everything in your power to avoid striking any other person with your vehicle, you're a f*cking idiot. Laws are meant to help facilitate traffic, not make you or others immune from injury. No matter how in the wrong the other person is, at least have the decency to stop, especially for a cyclist.

Why? Those cocksuckers don't stop for anything. Just ask theorellior.
 
2013-05-23 03:11:02 PM
I guess I'm lucky that I live in an area where we have decent sized shoulders and cycling for fun is common, probably more common than actually having a 9-5 job. Sure bikers get hit a reasonable amount, but that's just the way it goes. Don't leave the house if you don't want to take the chance of hitting someone or being hit. Sometimes shiat just happens.

So not only is she a vapid coont, she's a lying vapid coont. She directly stated she knocked him off his bike, now she claims he just wobbled a little.

Hopefully there's physical evidence at the scene, on the bike, or on the cyclist which proves she's lying, and she loses her license over this.  And I say that as somebody who finds cyclists with the attitude of this troll / moron (not sure which he is, as I've personally seen actual cyclists espousing this position) to be total assholes.

theorellior: Call me when you get a blister on your accelerator foot. I'm running stop signs right in front of you.


If you're not just trolling, you're an argument for cyclists who use public roads and pathways being forced to have a license that can be revoked. You *chose* to use a form of transport that requires effort and makes blisters; nobody forced you. That choice doesn't give you a right to ignore the rules of the road that are there for the safety of all of us. Either obey the rules, or get the fark off the roads and rely on walking or public transport.

It's jut a difference in terminology. They're called "please refrain from moving forward, there's a good chap" signs in the UK.
