I was doing one of these goldsprints once and this cager stopped at the light and revved his engine several times as I passed by him and through the intersection. A minute later he's on my 6 honking his horn and revving his engine some more. I pulled out my U Lock and took out his farking headlight.

Assholes shouldn't be driving like that. There isn't enough space for cyclists and cagers in some places. Learn to share, assholes.

That seems like one of the most pretentious bar activities I've ever seen.  Whatever happened to the electric bull!??

Ah, the new Electric Bull for the Gen-X set. I can think of worse things, I guess.

I'm pretty sure I'd vomit if I tried that after drinking.

The plus side of this is that if I walk into a bar and see that I know that I should probably go to another bar.

I will share when you assholes learn to obey the traffic laws like you are supposed to.
I.E.
No running red lights.
No passing on the dashes in-between traffic lanes.

I used to help organize these types of races in Providence a few years ago.  we only had one person throw up, and oddly we weren't allowed back the following week.  but they were lots of fun

Thanks for writing this...I used to work in an area where there was a lot of car and bicycle traffic and I was amazed at how often people on bicycles would just blow through a red light hoping that there was no traffic.  I'm amazed no one got killed...I really am.
A lot of bicyclists do obey the rules of the road so I don't want to lump the good riders in with the bad but it seems like the cops could do society some good by occasionally ticketing some of the bad ones so word gets around.

It's from a French Movie. Not just any French movie, but a silent animation.

Say, "OUCH! I ran into a bar!"

"They said it was only 15 seconds, but it feels a lot longer," she says.

i don't think that is how a "that's what she said" joke goes

Less pretentious than beer aficionados endlessly talking about beer? I think not!

One says, "Man, we gotta stop doing this. My knees are sore."

The other says: "Your knees are sore? The hot dog fell out about 4 bars ago!"

The Triplets of Belleville

, if anyone's wondering. A nice little film. A bit weird, and very French, but nice.

And here is a video of the fun.  Bonus?  4 year old video.
